Guild Wars 5k Gen Con Arena Session 3rd qualifier goes to "Narnia"


As previously stated, ArenaNet is running our very first sealed play tournament here at Gen Con in Indianapolis this weekend. The third qualifier started today (Friday) at 7:30 with seven teams forming and getting into the action.

Of these teams, two came back from previous qualifiers (though with membership changes) and five new teams also came or formed on site to compete.

Once again, the e-game computer area was filled with competing teams for this event.

Here are some of the teams that competed in Session 3:


Team Clenched Fist

Team El Nino

Team EW

Team Sons of Narnia

Team Witty Walleyes

Team Dragon's Den competed also along with Team Green, a team that had members of the previous qualifier winning team "The Good Ol Days" playing for fun along with Kate who came in just as the event started so that she could participate in this fun event too!

At 9:30pm, team "Sons of Narnia" won the third qualifier by winning five matches out of 6. This team had played in the previous qualifiers and did well and was happy to win this 3rd event. Matt, Derek, Andrew, and John will be playing in the semi-finals on Saturday along with the previous qualifier winners.
