Merry Christmas!

Its ChristmasIt's that time of year once more, Santa is making his way around the world and the epic team members have already consumed a little too much mulled wine.

I'd like to take this opportunity to wish all of our community members a very merry Christmas and all the best wishes for 2012. I would also like to make a special thank you to all of the members of the epic.LAN and epic.Radio teams who have once again given another year of their own time to bring you some great LAN events and online activities.

Looking back over 2011, we've had another very successful year. Our biggest ever LAN event took place in February, we introduced a successful tournament series to our events while retaining the old atmosphere through the two hall idea and we've continued to improve on the events you all enjoy.

We also had some great smaller community events, including our epic lite LANs, Alton Towers Trip and our second visit to the F1 Grand Prix at Silverstone.

Online, we've continued to grow our community, recently passing over 1000 registered users. We've maintained our popular games nights, have a great forum and IRC community and of course we've recently launched epic.Radio for you all to listen to while you're playing and that has brought some great new people into our online and LAN community who we welcome wholeheartedly.

So in 2012, we hope to continue to build on the successes of this year. epic.EIGHT is already looking very promising for our casual and competitive community. New forums are coming (sorry, they had a little delay while we launched the radio) and we have some other exciting plans for our events and online activities.

Again, I thank you all for being a part of what we've achieved in 2011, and look forward to seeing you all in 2012.

Best Wishes,

Jon (Winbar)
