The Legends Circuit / Comic Fiesta Day 1
I blame my hotel’s wireless connection for being horribad at nights, so I resorted to using a direct line and, TADAH!! With that, let’s get down to the Topic at hand.. shall we?
Having arrived at KL the day before, I had ample time to do my required familiarization around the area, so I was quite prepared for what was to lie ahead today. I HAD also expected the crowd to be driven in the hundreds, given the level of the event itself, and oh boy was I badly mistaken.
Yup… THAT bad.
Due to me arriving rather ‘on time’, I could only blame myself. :#
After a quick breakfast and 45 minutes of hot air, I finally managed to get my tickets!!
<Well actually, it turned out that I didn’t had to pay for them, but due to me being a slowbum… GAH. I think I’ll just forget about that. The answer to this will be revealed on Day 2’s Post… Sigh>
So, the area itself wasn’t all that big (in regards to the areas that I was concerned about), but hey, it’s still larger than our AFA SG 2013. With the League of Legends TLC Playoffs taking place at Hall 5 (In case for the unknown, I’m there to take care and report over my team’s event!), I duly spent some time with my team (who eventually won the match), and proceeded on exploring the venue.
<My team before the match up. The crowd behind them was just a small indicator of just how many people actually watched. Here’s some pictures depicting what the crowd was like…>
In between each match, there was a cosplay segment, where individuals would come out cos-ing as LoL characters. It was fun, and certainly adds variety into a otherwise an already intense competition (the crowd cheers were crazy at times…)
While exploring around the other part of the event, turns out that this time round, they wanted to focus alot more on their country’s creative talent, with their creative booth taking about 1/3 of the whole event, and alongside with schools/universities about game design and all, so this time round, the convention was evenly split between games, anime, and education itself.
Happened to bump into Danny Choo while eating Lunch, but didn’t get the chance to take a photo with him.. NUUUU!!! :<
Anyway, as the day rolled by, my team performed well today, winning both their matches to seal their entry into next year’s GPL. But there’s still the finals to be played, and with 20K MYR up for grabs, here’s to wishing my team all the best tomorrow!!
<My favourite photo for the day…>
A quick pitstop over at my team’s hotel room for debrief, followed by heavy footsteps back to my hotel room, with my loots of the day revealed. HUE HUE HUE
<No Prizes in guessing which is my most coveted item of the lot>
Good night, and see you all tomorrow at Day 2!! 😀
