Default Cyber X Games 2004 Canceled!!

Is this incredible or what? They hadn't even finished a majority of the tourney's yet!

Quote:
In a somewhat interesting turn of events, nearly every competition in the Cyber X games was cancelled. Thats right, CANCELLED. What was to be the biggest, the most extravagant eSports Gaming event of all time, has literally turned into the biggest eSports failure of all time. It is times like these which is very sad for a community's future. We have been striving for more competitions, more prize money, and more fun, for a very long time now. When something like this happens, it really does have an impact on what we have been trying to achieve, our community has been hurt right down to the bone. How will we bounce back?

Today is truly a sad day for eSports.

Hey, even I would be tempted by 21" LCDs and a disturbingly serious lack of security.

Great job to the organizers and admins at the event......f**kwits.

Edit: just read the entire thing, hell I would have taken those damn monitors

esports? LAN gaming is not a sport, it's an event.
