    Player Chronicle -- Posted on Feb 22 2011

    Possible Article Content:

    The Carolina Games Summit held Saturday February 5, 2011 featured live bands, speakers and exhibitors from game developement companies, along with representatives from local colleges and schools who feature game design programs. The all day event also featured 22 tournaments across all gaming platforms and genres. Tournament winners are recognized in front of 400 fellow gamers at the end of the day during the student produced awards ceremony. Custom made videos show off the individual games prior to the winners being escorted to the stage. All videos featured during the ceremony are produced by Simulation and Game Development students at Wayne Community College. First place winners receive a plaque imprinted with a full color image unique to each tournament and are created by former WCC Networking student Josh Berens.

    In addition all top three winners receive medals along with prizes supplied by the event sponsors.

    "We do not advertise prizes ahead of the event, just the custom made plaques and medals." Michael Everett an Instructor at Wayne Community College and the events Creative Director states, "We want our attendees to come for fun and recognition not for the prizes, that way when they receive a prize it is like a bonus."

    The event has 106 winners across 22 tournaments who seek the thrill of being recognized making the months of practice worth it. Many of the competitors featured below are examples of hard core gamers who practice their skills on a regular basis. Many may be practicing to become professional gamers but few will actually make it. The opportunity is there and in some cases players can bring in six figure salaries by joining leagues such as Major League Gaming where Electronic Sports Gamers sign $250,000 yearly deals to compete.

    Traditional card gaming is also represented along with a costume contest judged by Penny Dreadful Productions an Atlanta based conceptual design and physical production company. Their work has been seen in major motion pictures such as The Book of Eli.

    The Carolina Games Summit congratulates this years winners and looks forward to seeing their skills improve at next event on Saturday Feb 4th 2012. Each year the Carolina Games Summit grows to include more features, attendees, and partners. For more information about the event please visit www.CarolinaGamesSummit.com
