  1. Epic 25 - The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

    First of all - thanks to all the staff and the venue. Was overall a fantastic weekend. The Good The internet and network - It was absolutely was tip top. Mind you didnt expect anything less :). Any issues were extremely quickly dealt with. The Staff - Friendly, happy to help and enthusiastic. Cant ask for more. The Games - Quake was played. I'm happy. The Venue - First time at this venue and it was very nice. The facilities are great and the rooms are very clean and well maintained. The Atmosphere - Holy shit - Last epic I came to was epic 5 but I was ecstatic to see how much its grown and how the bar has been raised. The Video Coverage - nuff said. The Bad The Temperature - I know there isnt too much you can do about it but the temperature in portland was all over. I was going from 2 jumpers to a t shirt every other hour. The Bar - A little expensive, but to be expected. The Ugly The Food - Honestly it was absolutely abysmal. For the price I expected bigger portions or better quality. The pasta was a inedible burnt rubbery mess and the fish and chips were soggy cold and under cooked. Not to mention I found a whacking great bone in it. The burger was ok but it was very dry. The staff also didn't really seem to know exactly what was available. I asked for curry on the fish to be told there was no curry, so I asked for peas and I got curry. The Toilets - More a issue with some attendees rather than anything else but the state of the toilets adjacent to the loud gaming room on Sunday was awful. It was quickly dealt with though Extra shout outs to the security guards - proper nice guys! Hopefully see you at 26!

  9. The good, the bad and the ugly

    There was a epic hunt? Gawd DAYM! I honestly never noticed. And you can't loose BF2 to BC2 because there is no lan play as pointed out. I do think Blur should be become a big game. Around 16 players per lobby if I remember correctly. And its stupidly fun.

    Also like to add prophunt to the VERY good... And the CSS fun maps
  11. The good, the bad and the ugly

    Good: Quake 3 Alien Swarm Staff The people there The lan Bad: Snoring in camping area Eyes hurting after quake 3 Hand cramp after Quake 3 Not getting enough food at BBQ and the organisation of said BBQ Ugly: The price, I know there isn't much you can do about it, but the bar prices are bad, the breakfasts were from what I heard bad. And of course, the lan price. Its getting too much for me now
