“First of all, we would like to start with a big thank you to ASUS ROG Romania. Some of you might have tuned in this weekend, to the DreamHack convention in Bucharest, Romania. ASUS ROG was there, and prior to the convention they held a modding competition, which we couldn’t attend, because of some technical issues we had with the motherboard in our mod. A few days later, after the modding competition had ended, we posted pictures of our mod online. The guys from ASUS Romania were very excited about our project and called to invite us to DreamHack Bucharest, to display our Mod alongside the other winners of their competition.”
