With Xtreme Gaming’s BYOC having a great streak of lan events on a regular basis (pretty much what Re-inforcement does with ICGC), this year’s BYOC 2012 will kick off with a lot of “Platinum”/”Gold” Sponsors.
Kingston is pretty active in sponsoring events that benefits the community (and let’s not forget even the phase-cooling modding project that veteran modder Rakesh Sharma is currently working on) and followed by Gigabyte India. Coolermaster India did say that they haven’t participated in this specific event, but might do so for the BYOC during the summer. In any case, I need to re-confirm with Asus if they are Gold partners. Goes without saying that both companies (or maybe others) would like to sponsor events provided there aren’t other sponsors who are their rivals.
Nevertheless, despite maybe the usual bumps and whoops moment during lan/BYOC events, its nice to see regular events happening. Now all it needs to
