epic.FOUR Feedback

As epic.FOUR comes to a close, we hope you've enjoyed the last 4 days of LAN. The team always appreciate feedback on how the event was from your point-of-view and we do take the time to review each response.

Similar to epic.THREE, we've created a short online survey available to those who attended this weekend. There is also the obligatory "Good, Bad and Ugly" thread on the forums for additional comments.

We hope you take the time to complete the survey as we take on board what is said and will post a response to the points raised in the coming weeks (once we've slept!).

See you all online and bring on epic.lite 2!

epic.FOUR Unreal Tournament 2004 Winners

The final of our last-man-standing Unreal Tournament 2004 competition has just taken place here at epic.FOUR. Four valiant competitors took part, but in the end, there could be only one winner.

Draken, Jobabob, Vardy and Fuzz fought it out to the bitter end on Idoma in a five minute battle. The winner, taking glory, honour, some epic.LAN goodies and a £20 Kustom PCs voucher is...

Vardy!

A decisive win by 19 frags over second place Fuzz has shown that he truly is the champion.

The full standings are:

epic.FOUR Google Map

Some of you were a little confused by the map post earlier in the week which detailed the site layout, so we've clarified it using this handy Google Map which marks on the key event features within the Uttoxeter Racecourse site, how to get from the main gate to our event entrance (useful if you haven't been before!) and a number of other useful local places.
