was originally started as an idea by Tim "Belial"
Coburn. He mentioned to Dave Kratky (Marauder) that someone
should really organize a big LAN party in the Orangeville
area (We're located approx. 1 hour North of Toronto, Ontario,
Canada.) Naturally I thought he was right off his rocker.
Shortly after this time, Belial dropped off the face of the
he had Marauder thinking.... And so, on May 6th of 2000
the staffers walked into our local curling club and set
big LAN. We drew 60 or so gamers from all over Ontario, including
Pappy-R from Planet Quake and a few from the northern states
as well. The party was an absolute blast, everyone had
next big LAN was held on June 2nd of 2001, and again drew
65 gamers. This time we had people from as far away as California
come, as well as the entire Planet Quake crew (Pappy,
yah.) and a bunch of the guys from Shining Force, an old
clan from all over the USA and Canada. It was a great
again we were a little disappointed by the turn out.
the moment there's unlikely to be another big party, as we
don't seem to be able to draw enough people to make it worth
the time and money invested. (Just breaking even has always
been our goal, never yet achieved.) But I'll be helping out
at other southern Ontario LANs, as well as covering them for
the site. Cyah all there!
the 2000 party was over, we weren't sure what to do with
site until the next party... So I started posting news and
reviews just for fun. Praetorian was supposed to help
and did for a little bit but just had too much to do to keep
up. Rune offered to help out, as did Iceman and Dopper.
see stuff from them occasionally.)
That's what we've been doing ever since. Marauder's the
guy who runs the site, and posts most of the reviews and
out with the news, and other people will drop by with
the occasional review or rant. Right now we're getting an
of around 700-1000 hits a day. Not too shabby considering
this is something we just do for fun in our spare time.
to Donut911 for the 'nade image in the logo. You rock Kier.
interested in becoming a member of the FRAGtopia crew, just
send me a quick
message here. We're always looking for
good people to do news, reviews, rants etc. It doesn't pay
anything, as the site isn't sponsored... But on the other
hand it's alit of fun, and it's interesting to see what people
think of your work.
