"O 1º Encontro Regional da Legião Fênix no Estado do Espírito Santo foi realizado no dia 24/11/2000 no NPD da Escola às 22:00h., o nosso servidor já estava no ar às 22:30 mas algumas estações estavam desconfiguradas o que atrasou o início da 1º MARATONA CAPIXABA em umas 2 horas, mas neste meio tempo vários LEGIONÁRIOS CONVIDADOS entraram no servidor participaram de combates. A 1 hora da madrugada do dia 25/11/2000 teve início a MARATONA, mas como o horário já estava avançado só os Legionários de Vitória (CONDOR, ABUTRE, VULTURE e DARK CROW), e os Legionários CARDEAL e YAN-DRAGON jogaram."

All players were eager for a share in the thousands of dollars on offer.
"You always have to expect issues when putting on an event like this but thanks to Cisco who flew us up a router, the network has been extremely fast and very stable," Key event organiser and QGL founder, Adam "Term" Williams said. "Everything has been running on time and according to plan" Two professional Australian gamers, Andrew "Python" Cha Cha and Robert "Lobsta" Campbell, both absent from the QGL event due to last minute training, are heading to Dallas, Texas later this month to compete in the CyberAthlete Professional League Tournament. With over $100,000 in cash prizes on offer, the tournament takes gaming to a whole new level.
