"Shot-Online is the first online game I have ever played. For me it's all about the interaction with other players that makes the game enjoyable. Making the US Regionals was my goal and I was shocked that I made it and won! It just goes to show you that you should always strive to do your best because you never know when someone is watching," said first place winner Christopher Rea (aka "8ballxpress").
Rea continued, "I'm so excited about going to Korea. I was stationed there in the mid 90's at Osan Air Base as a mechanic for the Air Force. I love the food, the people, the culture and have always wanted to go back so I am thankful to gamescampus and the GNGWC for helping make that happen. SEE YA IN KOREA!"
