The past few weeks I have determined that starting a daily blog will be one way of organizing my thoughts and actions throughout each day. I have been looking forward to today, February 1st, on my 36th birthday to get started. I am no where near familiar with WordPress enough yet to make this look good, but I will move forward daily and make adjustments as I go.
Last night we completed the 21 day gamerscore challenge to benefit Get Well Gamers. My team, CFL, consisting of my long-time eBash friends Dustin Dudley, Kyle McCormick and Mark Repollet gathered over 50,000 achievement points on the Xbox 360 console. A tournament like this seems to be the most interesting and is one of the goals I have for revolutionizing competitive gaming. Getting the publishers behind competitions will only happen if the competitions themselves promote new games. Gone are the days of wishful thinking that you can play Halo 3 or CS 1.6 for the rest of your life as a “professional gamer”.
Tomorrow is the pre-season start to our first ggCircuit week night league. Modern Warfare 2 should draw in 20-30 teams from around the US and over the next 6 weeks I hope to fine-tune the program. Halo 3: ODST league starts in 2 weeks and it should also draw plenty of teams. I just hope there isn’t a pathetic amount of crying and whining from the teams about how everyone is cheating and there is too much lag. There is nothing more I hate than complainers.
