A few weekends ago I attended the MLG Fall Championships in Dallas! I only went on Saturday afternoon, but had such a blast! There were a TON of people.. mostly guys.. and I even saw a few friends. The coolest part was seeing Halo 4 before it was released. I also enjoyed watching League of Legends since I just learned how to play it. (I'm REALLY bad at it)
I walked in the door and ran into my friend Kyle! I met him at Anime Fest. They looked amazing!
It was funny asking random guys if they'd take my picture for me :D
You could get free Dr Pepper .. pretty cool!
And these lovely ladies gave out free pretzels! Can you tell which one is me?! ;)
I watched the live stream of the Star Craft competition the night before and saw Scarlett play. So when I saw her in person I was pretty excited. Always proud of girl gamers. (She's in the green shirt at the computer)
And this was by far the coolest thing ever!! I have been wanting a larger, gaming mousepad and struggled finding one in stores. I assumed I'd need to order one eventually but thought maybe I can find one at MLG. I saw a couple of guys holding these and asked them where they got it. He said he won it and some other items in a contest.. So I was kind of bummed and said how I'd been looking for one and he offered it to me! I tried to decline, of course, but he insisted since he won two. I was ecstatic!!
Overall, I would rate my experience a 10/10 .. It was my first gaming convention to attend and even though I went by myself I had so much fun! Hopefully I can go to more of these soon :)
