From the bottom of my cholesterol filled heart, thank you for making Warzone II such a successful event. Warzone I had gdlk moments, but quite a few number of setbacks. I needed WCW2 to step up from last year and deliver an epic tournament experience, to which I can confidently say: MISSION FUCKING ACCOMPLISHED. Tournaments were on time, I hear the stream quality was excellent, and everyone left with a smile and memories. To everyone I may miss in my following shout outs, thank you.
Quick Note: I apologize about not getting to an official raffle during the event. I apparently signed the ballroom until 9pm (I don’t know how I missed this on the contract) and I get charged an extra $500 per hour I stayed past that time. We ended at midnight. I’m sure you can do the math. People who came up to me and asked about the raffle I just started handing a prize to during clean up. Fatbear walked away with the ASUS monitor. Some asian guy got the PS3, and some white dude got the Xbox. A latino looking guy got the Chun-Li blu ray, and he looked kind of pissed. Oh well. Filipinochamp got a stick, and I can’t remember who else got sticks. Anyhow, that’s how it went down. I guess it’s kind of like a raffle in how random it was that you got a prize. Whatever. On to shout outs:
Kai - Yup. All those nights of planning and arguments led us to an incredibly successful event. Hopefully, Square doesn’t release another Final Fantasy a month before Warzone III. That did not help our productivity for this event. LAWLZ. I <3 Lightning & Serah. You suck.
Gootecks - What else can I say Ryan? You’ve helped me through so much and your constant winning attitude and positivity juiced me through the weekend. Thank you for all the help with the media, commentary, muscle, and everything else you’ve done for me. I know I have a life long friend in you.
AJ Papa - AJ. The world needs to know that you are the absolute greatest stream producer in the universe. I heard nothing but praise and adoration for the work you produced. Anyone would be the luckiest event coordinator around to have you work your magic. Thank you for your unending passion and dedication to quality.
James Chen - Mr. Chen. I don’t care what Mike Ross says, you are the classiest guy in the scene. Even when I was drained, you were always there to help out and provide your insight to entertain the masses. Thank you so much for being a part of Warzone II. Also, your Cammy is sick.
Cami - Oh Cami: I don’t know anyone else at Warzone who was able to turn my stress 180 back to sunshine with a smile. You were always there to assist with anything and everything. Thank you so much. Man, if only you weren’t with Ryan. You know what I mean? GURRRLLLLLLL. J/K Ryan.
MarkMan - The scene has changed and Madcatz is definitely the only company that seems to keep up with the times. MarkMan, you are an invaluable asset to not only Warzone, but every fighting game community. Your sponsorship and presence was greatly appreciated.
Keno - Keno. 400 years of oppression and manual labor has made you the ultimate TV carrying machine. MAH BOI! You’re always there man. Fucking thank you. As soon as my overtime is over, we’ll be back to kicking it like the old days.
Warren - Warren. 100 years of building railroads for pennies a week has turned you into a slim, agile, work horse. Thanks again for everything. You’re the fucking man.
Filipinochamp - You are my favorite NorCal cat. Fucking love you homie. You always bring the hype. I will make sure to get some time off and come up to NCR.
Neo - FUCK! Justin is just too good. Good shit though. Thanks for coming out again and getting hype as fuck! If you have another big money match, I’ll be there. You’re mah boy d00d.
Eduardo/Damdai/FloE/Jan/RuIn/etc - Thank you for flying from out of state and country. I hope you guys had a good time. Eduardo, don’t jump against Kai. It’s just not going to work. Run it back on PS3 homie!
All of my SoCal friends - You know there are just far too many to list. You’re all my favorites. I hope Warzone was to your satisfaction. This is your tournament.
All my NorCal friends - Thanks for making that drive down. We appreciate and needed your presence. We’ll be sure to make it up to SUPER NCR!
Earthquake - Thanks for scaring the east coast people. God bless, I hope everyone in Baja is safe.
To everyone else that I know I’m forgetting: THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.
I hope you will all come out for West Coast Warzone III in 2011.
God bless. I love you all.
