Winter Xtival Day 1

As I’ve been apart of Xtival since the very beginning back in 07, the response has definately snowballed into something quite popular.

The steward program was put in system to help people out during the Xtival event when the second Xtival was launched in 08. Back then, the Stewards had it relatively easy as Xtival was still a new thing. The Summer Xtival in mid 09 however was a sign of things too come. This one, the Winter event is even more relentless with the onslaught of gamers and questions, which is great, its what we signed up for. We’re here to help.

Strangely enough the entire UK team of Stewards are…XBLA staff, which makes things easier in a way, cos we all know that everyones working hard, and its better than last time when i was just working with one other person who wasnt really pulling thier weight.

So, this seasons Steward team consists of Myself (Mechanical R), Kristian2008, BDRDaz, NBKRooney and xXR4GT4GXx.

So feel free to ask us a message, you can get hold of us either through our Gamertags, or, where theres a help thread that I and Kris work through.

Either way, theres plenty more to do for the weekend, more comps and tournaments to host and take part in, and obviously more questions to answer!

XCN’s Xtival weekend is back again!

Ive been hard at work devising competition formats for tons of games for Xtival, but sadly, they only chose for two of the competitions i submitted, those games are The Beatles Rock Band and Tekken 6.

Im pretty bummed out that I couldnt host more of them as I was really hoping to have a fair amount of them on the go, but still 2 comps! Thats more than most are hosting for the big event!

More details on the comps and the weekend very soon!
