So I asked Iron Galaxy for a tournament prize...

Felt like I needed to post this in order to properly give props to Dave Lang and the rest of the Iron Galaxy team, cause they did something real awesome for me.

I work over at Turbine (makers of Lord of the Rings Online) and recently decided it'd be fun to run a Divekick tournament at the office. I figured Dave Lang seemed like a cool dude, so I sent an email to Iron Galaxy asking if they could provide "somethin real dumb" as a prize for our tournament. Dave responded saying he had an idea but it would be a few weeks, and not long after we received a big cardboard box with IRON GALAXY written on the side in sharpie.

We had a good turnout and plenty of spectators; it turns out "there are only two buttons!" is actually a solid way of getting people to try a new game. And when the dust cleared from the final match (Baz vs. S Kill), and we opened the box to reveal the prize, the collective gasp rang throughout the halls of the studio.

That's right. It's the Mr. N version of this Fellowship of the Ring poster http://i.imgur.com/3fXmgJC.jpg

Thanks again to Dave and the Iron Galaxy team, we had an great time during this tournament, and getting this amazing piece of art as the prize was a fantastic way to finish it! It's hanging in the LOTRO pit now, over the desk of our new Divekick champion.

Dave Lang seems like a cool dude, but I heard he stands outside monasteries and throws water balloons full of paint at nuns.
