Copenhagen Games 2012
What’s up guys! For you who doesn’t know, last week we had the annual Copenhagen Games here in Copenhagen (Duh!) and it was awesome!
I found out about Copenhagen Games around half a year ago, and back then, I wanted to see if I could get good enough to be in any of the tournaments they had.. I mean, why not? I’m playing all the games already so might as well give it a shot! But of course, to be able to compete you’d have to be pretty darn good, so in the end I volunteered as Crew for the event, and I sure as hell don’t regret it!
They started setting it all up on Monday last week, but unfortunately I wasn’t able to show up the two first days due to my brother visiting me here in Copenhagen. So I showed up on Wednesday, but there wasn’t much to do at the time, since they already set everything up, but after the event started, it was as if I never stopped working.. We showed up around 9-10 in the morning and left around 2 am, where after we had free beers at the bar! So basicly you’re lucky if you got more than 5-6 hours of sleep! I think I’ve slept around 25 hours since Wednesday (not counting yesterday of course), but I can guarantee you that it was worth every hour of sleeping that I lost!
But the LAN it self was rather epic as well.. We had 4 tournaments in total (CS1.6, CSS, Starcraft II and League of Legends) and we had some pretty big names here as well.. In Starcraft II we had the biggest names in Denmark, and a few from the big teams in the world, which was pretty darn nice! And our CSS tournament was definitely the biggest CSS event of the year.. We had all the top teams in the world, so in my opinion you could say it was the world championship!

I think I heard something about this being the 5-6th biggest LAN event in Europe, which if you ask me isn’t bad at all, and with the prize pools and amount of players that we had, it was darn good! Can’t wait till next year!
This is my first LAN event and if this one was just half as good as others, then I’m sure as hell going to a lot more, and guys… if you’ve never been to one, then DO IT! Come to Copenhagen Games next year, you wont regret it!
