Joshua's (LAN Volunteer) Experience

We arrived at around 6 in the morning and began setting up the venue. The Rec Room hosts were very helpful, which made the setup process quite smooth. Attendees started trickling in at around 9, and the atmosphere gradually became livelier. As a staff member, I wasn’t particularly interested in gaming, but I had a great time taking photos and videos of people having fun. Since I usually only attend major events, it was refreshing to see familiar faces in a new setting. Watching the DOTA players compete was a highlight for me. I didn’t participate in any online activities, so I can’t comment on that aspect but the people I Interacted with told me that they were still able to enjoy themselves both playing online with players around the world and locally with those around them. I also had the chance to meet a newcomer named Walker, who blended in well and enjoyed himself and seeing that brought a smile to my face seeing as that was his first Nerd Otaku event so it showed the growth in our community. However, the best part for me was being able to capture the whole event on camera and seeing everyone so happy.
