    So I just wanted to share with you guys that I will be hosting a screening of the KotP stream on Saturday in my local university gaming society (giant screen and pop corn will be involved :D ) as part of the RTS Club I have recently created.

    KotP HYPE!

    For those wondering: It's in the University of Edinburgh, the thing is not going to be very big (only the screen is :p ). I was trying to get critical mass of RTS players within the bigger Gaming Society, and I got it. But, naturally, most of them are just playing SC2 so I am trying my best to get PA to be the go-to competitive RTS for local tournaments and events.

    Today I gave an "PA Intro Session" for people interested in the game (thank you Exodus Esports for all the wonderful resources I put to good use today :D ) and next week we have our traditional 24h LAN so I will be organising a PA 1v1 Tournament (with commander skins as prizes) and a massive 8-player FFA.

    I see interest from a lot of people here, the game just needs to keep improving, as it has been recently, for the next months. I think once the vital features people are missing now are implemented (save, player profile/full ranks/stats, visual improvements, etc.) the game will be a local favourite here.

    things have certainly changed since i was at uni, back then we hijacked uni networking resources so we could play a game of quake without a ping of 300+ :)

    Sounds awesome, I hope you're going to video or at least photo this event!

    Clearly @elodea and @rivii are under even more pressure to make this a good one :)

    No pressure for elodea. He has enrolled himself into the PAG training and rehab clinic on Friday with myself and neptunio to fine tune his skills.

    "Clopse Eco" is now an urban legend thanks to me kinda using build orders other than building off the cuff. Neptunio on the other hand is still the beautiful troll he has always been.
