We’re a little late admittedly but heck, forgive us as we’re only a handful of zombies trying to do the job of many more humans.
The weekend of the Electronics & Gaming Expo threw up a number of winners, and we felt it was only right to acknowledge them somehow. Our congratulations to the winners, and our thanks to all the participants that supported us over the weekend. We hope to see you all back again in 2016.

Finally, we would like to give a few people who were the real winners in our eyes due to their weekend of sacrifice. There was Dylan Rosser who – until we get a zombiefied name for him will be called ‘Awesome Zombie’ – went beyond and above the call of duty. Yeah, that was really clever we know.
Luca and Chris from Orena were utter champs in looking after the Corsair CS: GO Championship, and Justin and Denys (from eHaven) were the ultimate ghosts in the machine when it came to running the PC and network infrastructure.
Clan Connection‘s HoldenZA was cool, calm and collected all weekend, while the core group of shoutcasters – Kyle, Kai, ChutneyBoi and CS 1977 – were on top form all weekend. A shoutout to the guest casters who joined in too over the weekend.
A massive thanks and all amounts of appreciation to the volunteers that worked until we took them off their chains. Without your help, we would not have managed – so thank you all.
Of course, there were also many sponsors involved in the event that helped make the tournaments a success, and we would like to thank them all for their assistance with our endeavours at EGE 2015:
