With the Mists of Pandaria approaching, I'd like to announce the sucessful conclusion of SNK events for the Cataclysm Expansion.
While it was 2 weeks or so early, I think we stopped at a good point to allow people to complete heroic runs for mounts, and to attend to other pre expansion tasks, getting their characters ready for their next big adventure.
On behalf of our sponsors, I would like to thank them for the many thousands of dollars of prizes, they have provided to our participants over the course of the Cataclysm.
People have enjoyed delicious chocolate, game time, (SNK has given out over 20 years of WoW time!) mounts, pets, assorted TCG goodies, razer & steel series & turtlebeach game gear, collectors editions of the various expansions, festive events at some of Melbourne's and Brisbane's finest eating establisments, bottles of absolute premium drinking delights (nothing but the best for SNK - thankyou Spirits Rack!), real gold and silver Year of the Dragon(soul) coins and more!
It's been a grand ride since it's inception, and there are many people to thank. The initial core SNK crew of Khazuals (from the much beloved Group 6 crew of main raiding alts and people on bench, plus the great people from Final Ascension) who were kind enough to follow me when I floated my crazy idea about a "fun raid".
The great people at Conviction, who helped continue to flesh out the raid, to all the wonderful team at OpenRaid, who made it possible to spread SNK to the world at large.
Individually, Gigawattage (for healing) Robosaurus and Kalatia (for tanking and being there) Efn, Drac, and Lily, for their assistance in setting up the Firelands Hotspots and episodes. Madeline and Twiglet (officers of Conviction who attend without fail and help run the show making me look good).
I could name many many more people, but that would make this post would be far too long. Simply then I say thankyou to all that participated, with the spirit of what SNK was in their hearts, and spreading the message of fun and more to a greater game universe.
It's unknown when the SNK series of events will re-launch for Mists of Pandaria. However I"m sure I will let you know when and if they do.
Until then. Thanks for sharing your time with me and SNK
SNK Events Convenor.
