Happy holidays and new year!

Ho ho ho – ’tis the season again! Best wishes to Crack Clan and the community in which we participate; it’s been a heck of a great year from LANs to lots of new game releases to old friends joining on the battlefield and new friends made. We hope your shopping is done and you’re with friends/family poised to enjoy their company and some warmth by a fire while the snow stays outside. Whether you be digging blocks or dropping bombs we’d like to thank you for an awesome 2010 and hope for all the best in the next calendar year! We’re polishing off ’10 with some more gaming, more giveaways and the exciting culmination of our first annual secret Santa while gearing up for up and coming releases and competitive seasons. Thanks to friends and foes alike who make this all possible: from the haters who let us know they care to the lovers that organize tournaments and everyone in between. Special thanks to all Crack Clan and supporters; that which we receive from you keeps us firmly in place delivering awesome experiences for longer than the others, ceaselessly putting out GGs while HF and continuing our tradition of enabling fair play at a higher level in an awesome environment. Thanks all, happy holidays and have a great new year!
