Pitchfork Challenge Victorious
(Citizen Star News) - 2014-08-29 - We are declaring victory and the victors to the first Pitch Fork Challenge held 2014-08-23 in Palo Alto, CA.
An excellent kick off for Operation Pitchfork and Citizen Star events. Winning competitors were very close, heavy competition.
Attendance was moderate, about a dozen folks. Which worked well as a this was new ground for all of us. Much more and it could have been messier. The event was streamed on twitch to quite a few additional people.
Results after the jump.
1rst Place - Super Hornet LTI - Weekend Warrior Package - Conflict Diamond @ORE
2nd Place - Hornet - Xamindar @Xamindar
3rd Place - Gladius - Toast @Toast

Two 15 minute heats, Vanduul Swarm v0.8 single player vs AI. Best score taken.

Special thanks to Toast (who is also a Moderator for RSI Forums) who jumped in and talked to the stream, making things more interesting.

And to all who attended, and those brought food!
