BoMB – Band of Maniacal Brothers

After a long time of having not really been in the game,  I’m trying to get us back into something more organized, where people will be excited to join us and play with us, and we get more of  sense of being a legitimate gaming clan or team instead of just a group of friends who play games together sometimes. With this kind of branding, it will also be far easier to acquire sponsors for our LAN events, and will probably make us more likely to have LAN events as well, honestly.

Anyway, it’s good to be back, and the site has been updated with a more flexible responsive layout (mobile coming eventually… right now I’m still working on building out the feature set of the desktop site!), as well as incorporating a Wordpress installation to make authoring and editing posts seamless for multiple users, and requiring no FTP access or coding knowledge. So yay for that! 🙂

The weekend of October 26th-28th saw BMB attend their first major LAN event, Sacramento Intel LANFest 2012. The crew competed and played multiple games including Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty. The LAN started up Friday night seeing BMB warming up and scrimming in CS:GO. Saturday is when the real action begin. Justin “NeMustang” Yaeger organized a StarCraft 2 competition for the entire LAN to participate in. Five Members of BMB competed with James “Venom” Weaver being the sole member to make it out of the first round. James went 2-1 posting a respectable result in the single elimination tournament. Next up was CS:GO, all 7 attending BMB member participated in various teams.
