TechSpot gaming meet-up: Join us this Saturday + Giveaway

By on May 19, 2010, 4:51 AM
With the weekend rapidly approaching, we figure it's about time to announce our second official gaming get-together. Like the first event, the game of choice is Team Fortress 2 and it will be hosted on our server ( this Saturday, May 22 at 6pm EST.

Admitedly, things were a bit slow in our first meet-up, but the idea was to learn from the experience considering it was the first time we organized such an event. We've already made a few changes that should improve participation, such as adding several popular maps to the rotation and opening the server to the public in case we can't fill all player slots at any given time. A few of our own TechSpot staff members will be present with mics, so discussion should be much livelier as well.

Yes, we are giving away prizes... Two participants will win an item of their choosing: a gaming mouse featured in our upcoming round-up (watch out for that next week), or any Steam game they want. The first winner will secure his prize by scoring the most points on Saturday, while the second will simply be selected at random from those who show up.

Interested in slaughtering TechSpot staffers and fellow members? Join our Steam group and leave a comment here. We look forward to gaming with all of you on Saturday!

Great - I missed the first one because I was doing volunteer work. This time I'll be out whitewater rafting. Obviously weekends are not the best for me. Maybe next time could try a weeknight?

Reloader2 said:

I'm in. You should make this ad an event on Steam so we know when it is...

Burty117 Burty117, TechSpot Chancellor, said:

Agreed with Reloader2, if posted on steam it could tell us all what time in our home country's.

Also think you should give the prize to Rasta211 already, after meeting him last time, he is INSANE!
