Last weekend, I attended Startupcraft, a Starcraft tournament for San Francisco startups. I played under the banner of Team Optimizely. My partner was co-founder Dan Siroker and together we played in the 2v2 expert bracket.
The tournament was hosted by Justin.tv and staffed by a small army of volunteers. 48 teams participated in three brackets, and the tournament ran smoothly and surprisingly quickly.
Dan and I won our first game and lost the second to a team that made it to the finals. We both had a ton of fun and met a bunch of fellow Starcraft enthusiasts. I hope to return for a future tournament.
