SMK World Championship 2019 Results : Summary

WARNING! If you are not up to date with Game of Thrones, you should not read the following summary... Just saying...

Another CDM is over!

2019 saw the CDM return to Alphen aan den Rijn's Esports Game Arena in The Netherlands from the 13th to 17th August, following a fantastic inaugural edition the previous year. 48 competitors from 12 countries made the lengthy journey (I'm not talking about the Dutchies- Martin, Mike and Sjors especially 😉) and friends from far and wide were finally reunited. Coming back after a year's absence included the Battle Mode maestro Geoffrey L., the Skank-Master (and self-proclaimed lover of John Barber) Harold Christensen, as well as the REAL Spaniards Daniel Lopez and Lara Gonzalez, who hadn't attended a championship since the good ol' days of La Suze in 2015.

This year's edition also saw the first appearance of the Republic of Ireland through Paul O'Kelly, a fantastic new member of the community who has promised us many more Irish competitors in the upcoming years! Frequent visitor Michael Sumner of Australia was joined by his cousin David Senior and the UK was also represented by its largest squad of recent years with several new rookies joining the veterans- Adam Ferguson, Christopher Barker, Lucie Carney, Simon Read and Holly Watson. Additionally, a last-minute media surge in The Netherlands boosted the Dutch squad to 13, with Rolf Plagmeijer, Mark Duivesteijn, Nick van Breda and Lana van Emmerik making their first and hopefully not last appearances.

A definite highlight was the record number of female competitors, 6 ladies from 4 nations. This is certainly a step in the right direction and if this year's results were anything to go by, these ladies will be kicking arse again for years to come, so watch out guys 😉

And with that, the Super Mario Kart Championship 2019 had commenced... allez allez allez!

Day 1- Opening Ceremony and Time Trial:

On the evening of the 13th August, the competitors excitedly entered the venue and all the introductory pleasantries took place amongst the usual chatters of gossip. "Was Scoub going to be victorious again?", "Would Neo make a comeback to first place?", "Would Sami ever cut his hair?", "Where on this PLANET was Drew?"... the discussions were endless. Who would've thought that despite supposedly being in Arizona less than a day prior, Drew wouldn't be the reason the opening ceremony was delayed? Anyone who bet on Narnet having a bath longer than the length of Sami's hair, reveal yourselves and take the money!

When it finally commenced, the opening ceremony was its usual parade of spectacle as the competitors strutted their way onto the stage. David Moll clearly didn't want to be welcomed back by the locals when he shouted "Everybody say BREXIT!" to Team UK as they took their group photo. Following this, the community took part in a very entertaining trivia quiz regarding the nitty gritty of the past 10 world editions, courtesy of Lafungo (Le roi de la statistique) and Karel, the latter of whom was surprisingly not the answer to a question about the player with the most silver medals- *insert Saw Gererra from Rogue One: "Lies. DECEPTION!". Guillaume won the quiz but unfortunately for him, this was the only thing he won for the rest of the week- not even the Fenner Contest. DĂ©solĂ© ☹

39 competitors played the Time Trial group stage and surprise surprise, Mr Consistency himself Sami Cetin took the top spot, followed closely by Karel who achieved the most #1 times out of the five who managed this feat. First-time Top 16ers were the impressive Takashi and Adam who placed at 10th and 13th, and they also joined Scoub, Neo, Guillaume, Lafungo, Chris Wild, Leyla, Martin, Geo, Sophie, Jey, Conor and Salim. A special shout-out goes to Mike Hulscher of The Netherlands who missed the qualification by a mere 7 points in what was by far, his best TT performance yet!

As the names of the victorious were called, they were quaking in their boots as they awaited the experience of the changed knockout format. Say hello to the Last Karter Standing! The competitors were allocated TVs and instructed to not move throughout the entire knockout stage as Narnet invigilated the individual start times and noted down the scores. Palms were sweaty, knees weak, arms were heavy...and one by one the slowest time for each track saw that competitor eliminated, their name booming across the arena as Patrick made the dreaded announcement on the microphone. Conor was the first poor soul to be eliminated by DP1, followed by Salim, Martin, Leyla (the author of this piece would like you to know that she is not happy about this result and that the MC4 zoom start will forever haunt her), Geo, Takashi, Jey and Adam, who took 15th-9th place respectively. This new format proved a gruelling test for the top players who had some very near scares and closely evaded an early exit, most notably Neo, who missed the bottom position and Geo's time on DP3 by a mere 4 milliseconds! Karel also wasn’t short of a heart attack, having apparently missed a number of zoom starts throughout yet still clenched survival.

The Top 8 of TT were Karel, Scoub, Neo, Sami, Lafungo, Guillaume, Chris and Sophie, all of whom achieved excellent performances to reach this point but most notably Sophie and Lafungo who reached the quarter final for the second consecutive year amidst a ton of dangerous opponents. The tracks proved technically tough, with three NBT-heavy Mario Circuits, CI2 and RR unleashing their wrath on Sophie, Lafungo, Guillaume, Chris and Karel. And then there were three. A podium guaranteed to be two-thirds French and a fantastic start for Scoub, Sami and Neo, all of whom had won a CDM in their careers and desperately needed these precious points to bolster the start of their 2019 campaigns. The track was announced and groans filled the arena. VL1 was chosen, a track so notorious within the community for its difficult navigation, near-impossible to avoid ice blocks and its position as the final track for the 2018 edition, which brought the most blood-curdling scream of celebration throughout all years. Legend has it that Matthias Boucher heard the moment Guillaume had won, all the way from New Caledonia! But on this occasion, the victors of VL1's wrath were calm and collected, both achieving 55 second times and unfortunately leaving Neo in bronze position with a time of 56"63.

All that was left was the final. The Night King versus Jon Snow.

Scoub and Sami composed themselves. The spectators filled their drinks. The unlucky 46 players surrounded the finalists like a giant cocoon. Patrick announced the track. Was it GV3? Or even VL2? Those terrifying courses were among the six to have not been called and every soul could only imagine the fear associated with having such an important race resting on such unpredictable and nerve-wracking tracks. But alas, it was not be for this year. The final track was BC1 and every mistake counted, no matter how miniscule. Both players began the race nearly in synch and the spectators held their breath. Every corner and every NBT was performed like a perfectly timed symphony and as each lap passed, there was less and less that was separating Sami and Scoub. All it would take would be one measly error that would end their TT gold campaign for good. They passed the finish line with barely any time between them. The victor was ambiguous. The spectators frantically dashed between the TVs to name their champion and within seconds, erupted a loud cheer. Sami Cetin had taken the gold from Scoub, winning by a mere 31 milliseconds. The Night King had risen, and Jon Snow knew that he needed to vanquish him tomorrow. Cue Day 2 and everybody's favourite (lol)... Battle Mode!

Day 2- Battle Mode:

Team UK were extremely excited for their favourite day of the competition and all eyes were on the BM maestros Scoub, Geo, Drew, Neo and Harold, to see what havoc they could wreak. Unlike TT, the format of the multiplayer modes hadn't changed and the Belgian system reigned once more. The 40 players were split into 6 groups according to their BM level and in the first 6 matches faced an opponent for every group, before the shakedown left them facing 8 new opponents that were of similar skill and had similar results. After an afternoon filled with the expected drama and Adam Ferguson being dubbed "The New Narnet" following a string of lengthy matches, the secure Top 12 was announced. For the 2nd year in a row, Sami took 1st place in the group which is probably just as well considering he didn't win the gold on this occasion. Sami was followed by Scoub, Drew, Neo, Geo and Conor who made an impressive 6th place, finishing above the skank-master Harold, Karel, Jey and Guillaume.

The Q1 17th-24th barrage matches saw some expected victories from Chris Clark, Marius Hukkelas, David Moll and Chris Wild, all of whom (but Clark) were then knocked out in the Q2 by Guillaume, Leyla and Sophie in order to secure their Top 16 positions and join those mentioned above in the fight for the quarter final. Oh, what a fight this would turn out to be! The Top 16 matches saw a string of close 5-4 finishes and many dreams were mercilessly crushed; Franck Adam was one such victim against Karel and as Leyla played her best BM thus far against Drew, Jey dramatically lost to Conor after leading 4-2, the British karter's celebratory cheers shaking alive the dead. Consequently, Karel, Drew and Conor joined Sami, Neo, Geo, Salim and Scoub in the Top 8 with those precious bonus points added to their bags. The 7-3 scores for most of the quarters would indicate comfortable victories for Sami, Geo and Scoub, having beaten Karel, Neo and Salim respectively, although there is no doubt that there were some unfortunate random greens potentially at play! Drew faced Conor and arguably not on his best form, was trailing 4-0 to the powerful Brit. Had Drew's near loss to Leyla in the previous round shaken him up? Whatever was the problem in the first few games clearly didn't last as Drew then won five in a row, prompting Conor to respond with his last victory and Drew's final two wins to take the end score to 7-5.

Onto the semi-finals! Geo was a force to be reckoned with and Sami suffered his usual defeat to the master tactician, with an unfortunate 9-2 loss. On the other side of the bracket, the Scoub-Drew death match started off pretty equally (4-4) and spectators flooded in to see if Drew would take revenge for his semi-final exit to Scoub the year prior. The score then hit 6-4 in Scoub's favour, with Drew taking it back to 6-5 but ultimately, the semi-final curse struck again for the second consecutive year and Scoub defeated Drew 9-5. With Neo's early exit and Sami's guaranteed 3rd or 4th position, the overall ranking was beginning to look increasingly promising for Scoub, our Jon Snow.

Before the final, Sami faced Drew in the Brit's semi-frequent trips to the 3rd place match, all of which had never ended well for him. Making a complete turn-around from his previous performance against Geo, Sami displayed the epic potential of his battle skills and defeated Drew with a very respectable 9-5, thus taking his first and Team UK's first ever BM medal- a fantastic achievement! (Sorry Sophie but your prediction/dream for Leyla to somehow win the UK's first battle medal is now null and void ☹ I know, she's sad too ☹😉)

The BM final saw Geo leading 4-0 with what appeared to be a comfortable start to his gold medal campaign, but Scoub was not going to bow out gently! A comeback to 5-4 in Geo's favour led him to retaliate with two more victories and once the score hit 7-4, there would not be a gap of more than 2 points for the rest of the game. The fight was on and both competitors knew the gold was in reach. Fast forward several minutes and the notorious 10-10 score was reached with the MC1 "coin-flip" of a track, Battle Course 1, being randomly selected to determine the winner. Games on this course have ended in seconds and there would be no harsher way to lose a final than to fall at the feet of an early triple combo. On this occasion it was a double red shell combo that took Geo early on in the game and after surviving many close attacks by Scoub, it was a star that finally sealed the deal. Scoub had defeated Geo 11-10 and consequently vanquished the 18-year-old curse which dictated that no player ever win BM in two consecutive years. Mérité!

Day 3- Match Race:

Before they knew it, the karters were halfway through the competition and rivalries were heating up. All eyes were on the guys to beat and those that had been training all year, expected to cause some upsets. The shakedown system left Scoub at the top of the group, Neo in second, Geo in an impressive third and Sami somewhat unexpectedly in fourth. When the results were announced, Sami took a deep sigh as he knew the inevitable truth- his ranking meant that he was on path to meet Scoub in the semi-finals, a far from ideal scenario to be left in. The rest of the safe top 12 included Jey and Takashi, who both achieved fantastic 5th and 6th place positions respectively, as well as Karel, Salim, Chris Wild, Guillaume, Harold and Leyla. It was the first barrage for Conor Wood who was only a mere 5 points behind Leyla and the safety net of avoiding the Q2 knockout but before he was to undertake this new mission, there was a different kind of drama in the Q1 matches.

Martin Van Haasteren comfortably defeated Switzerland's Raphael Braun 3-0 and Chris Clark replicated this with a similar victory against Patrick. The UK rookies Christopher Barker and Adam Ferguson then took to the stage for their first experience of a barrage, with Chris facing the BM specialist Franck Adam and Spain's Daniel Lopez betting his luck against Ferguson, both incredibly close and intense matches! A lightening on CI2 and successful red shot on MC1 gave Chris the 2-0 lead and match point had already fallen into his lap. MC3 saw Franck lead with a zoom start and solid driving but a tiny mistake at the end of lap 4 allowed Chris to catch up and as both karters were in synch on the final lap, the spectators held their breath. Franck proved his status as a growing master tactician with a wonderful green snipe that ended Chris' race and saved Franck's Q1 match, with the Frenchman ultimately saving two more match points and advancing to the Q2 knockout. Alongside the pair, there was no shortage of tension in Daniel and Adam's match. A cruel lightening theft on CI2 gave Daniel the lead before Adam retaliated with some good driving to match 1-1. The curse that struck Chris Barker then struck Daniel, who after leading 2-1 at match point, conceded the final two games and the Brit ascended to the Q2 knockout where he was to face Sophie.

As one would expect, the 13th, 14th, 15th and 16th placed competitors had good victories against their Q2 opponents and Conor, Lafungo, Sophie and Aron were thrown into the Top 16 ring to see what upsets they could cause. The players took to their seats as multiple matches were played at once and the tension in the room was growing, with old rivals facing once again, compatriots becoming opponents and wild cards threatening the stable foundations of the veterans. Scoub, Geo, Harold, Karel and Neo rapidly overwhelmed Aron, Lafungo, Takashi, Guillaume and Sophie, leaving them the opportunity to observe the remaining matches where some close games and an upset were to occur. Chris Wild and Sami both defeated Salim and Conor 5-3 but the scores prove that the end result could've gone either way and perhaps next year, revenge will be taken. The longest match of all the Top 16 was between 5th seeded Jey and 12th seeded Leyla, a pairing with notorious history. The winner of this game would face Sami in the quarter-final, an exact replica of the disastrous 2015 CDM for the British Champion, whereby Jey defeated Leyla in the Top 16, before destroying her uncle in the next round. All seemed good for Jey who led 4-2 at match point and history seemed to be repeating itself, until...the British Women's #1 somehow pulled through and by saving three match points, took her first knockout round victory against Jey and spared her compatriot the less than ideal situation of being pitted against the powerful Frenchman, also becoming the first woman to make a MR quarter final. Bloody ‘ell, that was a close one, weren't it?!

The quarter-final matchups of Sami vs Leyla and Harold vs Geo guaranteed a British and French presence in the semi-final, and it was Sami and Harold who were successful after strong performances. Scoub also comfortably vanquished a German semi-final presence by defeating Chris Wild 7-1 and while the spectators awaited the Neo and Karel death match, Scoub and Sami's anticipated semi was set in stone.

Karel's quarter final campaign against the former gold medallist hit a good start with a 2-0 lead but an extremely close MC2 saw a narrow defeat for the Dutchman as Neo climbed onto the scoreboard- would this loss later come back to haunt him? It didn't seem so initially as with some excellent driving and a Captain Thunderbolt impersonation, Karel extended his lead to 4-1. However, Neo wasn't a many-time gold medallist by luck alone and winning three races in a row matched Karel, albeit with his own lightening on GV1 that cancelled out Karel's previous one. The ninth race was KB2. Karel had it in the bag, his victory was confirmed and the spectators accepted his win, until...Karel decides to unnecessarily jump over the deep water on the final corner and gifts the race to Neo. The crowd goes wild and Karel's supporters exclaim in surprise and disappointment, knowing what a crucial loss this could prove to be. It could be said that this was then a turning point in the match as unfortunately for Karel, Neo finally takes victory 7-5. But oh, how different things could've been!

As predicted, Sami and Scoub's semi-final was also not short of drama, starting off equally in terms of the scoreboard. A GV1 lightening gave Sami a 4-2 lead as he donned his infamous Captain Thunderbolt armour and a subsequent win saw him three points ahead of Scoub. Sami could relax now, surely? Mais non. Like Neo, Scoub displayed his nerves of steel by bringing the score back to 5-5 and Sami's safe lead had dispersed. Onto GV2 and in its usual scenario, the race looked to be over for Sami who was trailing behind. Only by triggering the notoriously awkward and difficult final lap feather trick, would Sami be the victor. The item boxes gave him this chance by awarding him a feather and as he prepared the final corner of lap 4 to undertake the jump, the crowd held their breath...and yes! He did it! With this impressive feat, Sami joined Neo in being the 2nd person to achieve this shortcut in a knockout round at a CDM. You know what they would say down south? "People with mullets like that don't miss feather shortcuts" 😉 But, despite his achievement, it wasn't enough to defeat Scoub and a terrific performance by the Frenchman secured his place in the final, and with this, he itched ever closer to confirming his 4th consecutive overall title.

The second semi-final between Harold and Neo started off in Harold's favour with an opening score of 2-0 but some nice trolling by Neo on RR prevented Harold's feather and helped to bring them at equal measure. The Kart Gods blessed Harold with a couple of lightnings and the scoreboard then doubled to 4-4 and at this moment, it appeared as if the entire match would go down to the wire. Unfortunately for Harold, Neo's deathly response was to dominate the remaining tracks and the former gold medallist won five races in a row in spectacular fashion, thus booking his ticket to meet Scoub in the final. With only a few minutes break, Harold was forced to dust himself off and prepare to face the Night King in the battle for bronze. In a similar outcome to his semi-final, Harold conceded nine games against Sami's four and finished behind the Brit in 4th place, an extremely commendable result considering his one-year absence from the competition. We look forward to seeing what havoc he will wreak when he returns again!

Onto the final. This was to be a long-awaited matchup, with Scoub and Neo having last met in a MR final waaaay back in the inaugural La Suze year of 2013, in a game that ended in an 11-7 victory for Neo. If there was one thing to take from the 2019 showdown, it was that a multitude of the early races ended with ridiculously close finishes. Scoub's 2-0 lead was cancelled out by a 2-2 comeback from Neo and the pair remained within one win from each other until Scoub brought it back to 6-3. With the pressure mounting, Neo appeared to be making a small comeback and when the score was 7-5 in Scoub's favour, anything seemed possible in this first to 11. But like the Game of Thrones finale, Jon Snow brutally laid Daenerys Targaryen to rest by winning the four remaining games in a wonderful spectacle. With this, Scoub had taken another gold medal and pretty much the overall 1st place, come hell or high water.

Day 4- Grand Prix 150cc:

It is always the way that on the final day of competition, the karters are exhausted. The excitement and late nights are all fun and games until you wake up the next morning and feel like DEATH itself. But one consolation for the group is knowing that Friday would be GP day, a day guaranteed to be filled with tension and unrivalled drama. Sami unsurprisingly topped the group stage, followed closely by Neo, Geo, Scoub, Takashi (!!!), Conor, Karel, Guillaume, Harold, Aron, Sophie and Lafungo, all of whom were spared the barrages. Some unusual suspects (by previous edition's standards) were forced to undertake the dreaded Q1 and/or Q2 matches and Chris Wild, Salim, Jey, Martin and Leyla were thrown into the ring to fight for their ticket to the Top 16. An unfortunate and unlucky loss for Mike Hulscher sent Leyla to his fellow Dutchman Martin in the Q2 barrage where she was eliminated and finished in 17th place. Additionally, Chris Wild, Chris Clark and Jey defeated Raphael, Salim and Daniel Lopez respectively, with a special shout-out going to Clark the 19th seed, making the Top 16 by vanquishing the 14th. You see, haters of the Q1 and Q2 barrages? Dreams CAN come true!

In the Top 16 games it was business as usual for Sami, Guillaume, Scoub, Geo, Karel and Neo who blasted into the quarter finals each with 2-0 wins. But the real talking points were 100% the death-matches between Sophie and Conor, and Lafungo and Takashi- both of which were incredibly special and will be talked about for years to come! Conor was leading 2-1 on Flower Cup and only needed to win BC2 to pretty much secure his win of the cup and this seemed to be happening until the very last corner- typical of a CDM! Conor decided to not jump the lavas before the final stretch to take it safe but Sophie did this and with a quick NBT magnificently took the win by a mere 1 millisecond! Incroyable! The pair were now 2-2 on races and the entire cup came down to the last race, MC3. Both got their zoom starts but before Conor even had time to react, Sophie's awesome green shell snipe ended his race as she drove on comfortably and secured the first cup win. Next was Mushroom Cup- Conor won MC1 and Sophie narrowly took DP1 due to a missed NBT by Conor on the last lap, before securing GV1 and knowing amidst the pressure that all she needed was to win BC1. Alas, our Belgian Arya Stark succeeded, winning both BC1 and MC2 to knock out Conor and become the first woman to make a GP quarter final!

Cue the second monumental match- Lafungo vs Takahi. Lafungo won Flower Cup pretty comfortably with four races to one and the American was very much in the driving seat. But the real drama started during Mushroom Cup, whereby after GV1 Lafungo was winning two races to one and only needed to win BC1 to secure his quarter final position (in the event that he made at least 2nd place on MC2). Takashi had a mountain to climb but somehow he succeeded and by saving two effective match points, took the cup score to 1-1! Down to the last cup: dreaded Star. Once again Lafungo was 2-1 up and needed to just win the next race, which seemed to be going his way at first until Takashi caught up on BC3 with a beautifully executed feather shortcut. Against all odds, Takashi had made it so that the fate of both players and winner of the final Top 8 position rested on the victor of the very last race- MC4. The crowd held their breath, surrounding the players with somersaulting heartbeats and excitement. Who would make the quarter final for the first time? All was to play for! Both karters got their zoom starts but a couple of minor mistakes in driving by Lafungo gave Takashi the keys to victory. The crowd went wild and Takashi's emotional reaction provided the community with one of the most special moments of any championship. For this we are ever grateful <3

The quarter final matches saw 3-0 victories across the board for Sami, Scoub, Geo and Karel, the latter of whom achieved a fantastic feat by defeating the former champion Neo. But all good things don't last forever as the Dutchman was unfortunately silenced by Geo in the semi final with his own 3-0 loss, meeting Scoub for the bronze medal match after the 2018 silver medallist was defeated by Sami. Despite having confirmed his position as the number 1 overall for the fourth consecutive time, Scoub's GP bronze medal quest was not made easy by Karel and they entered the final cup at 2-2 equal in the first to 3, with any of the pair being highly deserving of the medal for two terrific performances. Unfortunately for the Dutchman, Karel fell short, losing the cup by four races to one and allowing Scoub to add yet another medal to his repertoire. This only left the highly anticipated final SMK competitive match of the CDM, the GP 150cc Grand Final; Sami had a campaign to defend his 2018 GP gold medal against Geo, who had returned from a one-year absence in which he had apparently been training GP more than anything else. Similarly to the bronze game, the pair took each other to 3-3 on cups, leaving Mushroom Cup to determine the victor and four strong races gave Geo the keys to the gold, vanquishing Sami at the very end. Mérité!

In typical CDM fashion, the Friday night became a wonderful party and once again the fantastic staff at the Esports Game Arena kept the bar open until around 4 in the morning. There was indoor football, spontaneous karaoke and lots and lots of alcohol. But best of all, the friends from all around the world got to make the most of their time together before the ceremony day arrived and it would be time to say their goodbyes.

Day 5- Closing Ceremony and Goodbye:

And with that, another CDM had come to a close and it was time to present the overall ranking in the goodbye ceremony, hosted by the fantastic Sophie! There had been a lot of speculation surrounding the final positions of certain players given the upsets they had caused and this edition's ranking was undoubtedly a unique one. For the second consecutive year, Scoub and Sami took 1st and 2nd place but joining them on the podium on this occasion was Geo, whose wonderful performance across the board catapulted him to 3rd place. Following the trio and completing the Top 10 was Neo, Karel, Guillaume, Conor, Chris Wild, Takashi and Sophie. Special and honourable mentions go to Chris, Takashi and Sophie, for all of whom this was their first time in this elite group. For this and her magnificent CDM, Sophie was deservedly awarded the famous Prix du MĂ©rite prize, an awesome hand-made bespoke T-shirt by Britain's Holly Watson.

Closely trailing behind Sophie in 11th place was Leyla by a mere 18 points (damn you GP!!), marking the first time that Leyla didn't finish as the fastest woman overall. Both the CDM's fastest ladies managed to finish ahead of Lafungo, Jey, Salim, Harold (albeit he didn't compete in TT), Drew, Martin, Aron, Chris Clark and Franck Adam, who all closed the Top 20. An honourable mention definitely has to go to the British rookie Adam Ferguson, who achieved a great 21st place with a TT quarter-final under his belt- we look forward to seeing how he progresses in future events!

When the ceremony concluded, the players were left to their own devices and a fun day filled with free play and good laughs followed. There was Circuit Breakers, Smash Bros and the infamous Fenner One-Player Battle Mode contest which funnily saw Sami clench victory from a hopeful Guillaume after entering last minute. The perfect end to a perfect CDM came with a large group dinner to De Beren, where the remaining karters shared their own Last Supper amidst their gaming family before all the sad goodbyes were uttered yet another time.

It goes without saying that this CDM was spectacular. All the thanks in the world must go to the organisational/admin team: Karel, Patrick, Sophie, the entire Esports Game Arena staff, Lars, Narnet, Marius and anyone else involved- without you, this CDM wouldn't have been possible. You are the true legends of the event!

If you made it this far to the end of my (very long) summary (sorry!), then thank you! Whether you were present at this CDM or not, I sincerely hope to see you next year. We have a special thing here with this community- let's keep it alive! <3
