A player's perspective on Insomnia events...

Thanks for all the Facebook likes

So most of you know we’re got twitter, YouTube and Facebook pages and we do what we can to keep them updated with TF2 type of things. What you may have missed though is that we’re just reached the milestone of 1000 likes on Facebook! This is kind of a big deal for us since we only decided to get into fb properly a while ago and besides everyone likes to be liked. Anyway, by happy co-incidence we’re just back from the Insomnia LAN at Telford (you may have seen our YouTube coverage). We were encouraging the comp players and casters to sign our massive (they are about 2m high) door posters. For you guys this means we’re giving away 100 unique quality Lo-Fi Longwaves and...

Farewell to i46

13th Nightmare
i46 has been and gone. And for those who didn't join us in the clanbox, what sort of randomness did you miss seeing as you couldn't join us for one reason or another? Let's see there was: Binerexis being near unstoppable at Street Fighter, NERF Guns, CHICKEN!, NERF Guns, UKCS winning the pub quiz, the poker nights, NERF Guns and CHICKEN! to name a few of the random things that happened. I didn't think it would be able to top last years Insomnia, but it did in more ways than one. It was great seeing the faces I saw last year, and many new ones too: Nightstalker, Nishino'san, Lockwyn, Ger, Cotillion, MrsSekhmet, EWJ and Rico to name a few. Those who never came to i43 last year, but made...

Cotillion approves this madness (i46 with UKCS)

Cotillion
So it was my first big LAN. I really looked forward to it and it did not disappoint me! It really was a blast and I was sad it was over. As a first timer it was also the moment to get to know some people in real life. It is always great to get some faces with the voices. Had loads of fun and talked with loads of people, which actually was really nice. Got loads of hugs from people, Comedian even jumphugged me :). The atmosphere at i46 and especially in the Clanbox was really friendly. Some random reasons why you should come next times as well: We played Twister with random people! Meet up with nice people and get to know them! You can scare 13th Nightmare if he is...

KritzKast @ i46 – TF2 Steps

Tempest
The tradition of TF2 players enjoying themselves on the steps of the Telford International Centre continues into i46. Ruskeydoo forces a man to walk a line then instigates a game of gay chicken with VanillaTV’s Admirable. What a cad!...

Kritzkast @ i46 – CM Storm

Tempest
After the great chat we had with them last year, how could I not go back and talk to Cooler Master’s Chris Cough at the Multiplay’s i46 event. I won a hat, so it would be rude of me not to stay to chat about their keyboards, mice and other performance gear. There’s also a sneak look at an ambidextrous mouse (one for the lefties!)...
