“I am Australian with problems for Swedish written grammar… I will save you the torture and write in English instead ;)” -Justin Ohlsen
This is a first hand account of what it was like to be a contestant in the Championship class of the DreamHack Cooler Master Casemod Championship 2015.
DreamHack for the second time this year has been host of the “DreamHack Casemod Championship 2015” PC modding competition, of which I was fortunate to be a part of the “Champion Class” with my PC mod project names “Origami”.
It is a very curious situation to stand on the other side of the fence when it comes to competition, to have my project judged and compared to the best pc projects that Sweden and some of the rest of the world has to offer.
The competition started at 12:00 when the gates opened to show all 12 modded projects to the public and the judges. There was massive interest from the general public who were very interested to see these majestic and beautiful works of art that us modders have dedicated maybe hundreds of hours of our personal time creating.
Soon after come the 4 judges to speak personally with each modder regarding each of their projects. This is our opportunity to sell in our masterpieces for the judges so they get a feeling of who we are, what our work is about and the depth of the mods which have been done. The judges comprised of the following well known profiles in the PC modding scene:
– Johnny Stone
– Hannes Fredriksson
– Lucas Kjellin Gardebrand
– Mike Petereyns
