Still plenty going on in the PD world, where records have continued to fall like dominoes this month (check Nov’s POM if you haven’t yet, BTW), but I wanted to give special attention to something Come put into action last night, The Elite Blog at LiveJournal. It’s a community we’re setting up to get the web journals of any interested Eliters together in one place, so that you’ll always be able to find out how things are going in their lives with just a few clicks. If this sounds like something you’d like to be a part of, by all means check our topic for more info on how to get involved- it’s a really simple process, and should end up being pretty cool if we can get more than a few Eliters updating actively.
And then secondly, I’d like to keep everyone updated on the progress of fellow Eliter Matt “Zyos” Leto. As you may or may not recall, after playing both PD and GE back on ’01 he first moved on to some other N64 classics (still Champ of a few over at N64HS, in fact) before becoming a full time Halo-fanatic. The hard work paid off, as Matt not only became the world’s best Halo player in 2003, but is also hot off a defense of that Championship just this October at the World Cyber Games in San Fran (he took home a cool $20,000 in the process). But this weekend, Matt steps up to the biggest stage of them all… the Winter CPL in Dallas. This year’s new big-money solo FPS is Painkiller, to which Matt has made a very nice transition, currently sitting with a world ranking of 35th. That was enough to earn him a first round bye through today’s action, but he’ll have a real test tomorrow during his 1PM match against 31st ranked Fredrik “Aim” Edesater. If Matt can survive to the third round, he’ll be going head to head against… let’s see here…
Johnathan “Fatal1ty” Wendel. Yes, as in, the three-time CPL champion and the most famous gamer on the planet. The one who had an MTV documentary made about him. That Fatal1ty. So, best of luck to Matt, all of us here at the Elite are pulling for him to take down this gaming giant over the weekend. Watch this spot for updates, OR you could follow along at dozens of sites like gotfrag.com yourself, if you would like. Go get ’em Leto, and with that, this Ngamer is out!
