Out of the 3,895 Kotaku readers who so kindly filled out the 2011 Gawker Media Census, 57% will completely change their schedule to keep playing games against worthy opponents in other time zones. The phrase "It's just a game" appear to hit your ears and immediately return to whence they came.
Reader/commenter extraordinaire Marquette Madness had the dedication, time, and sheer will of Lady Luck herself to win himself an iPad2. Speculations have been running wild, but it seems that if Mr. Madness is anything like you, he's going to use it as one of the world's most expensive alarm clocks so he won't miss a single, glorious deathmatch with someone on a different continent.
Thanks for playing, good luck next year, and remember, sleep is for the weak!
