So, as some of you know, I'm participating in the much talked about Miss Video Game 2007 Competition. Some interesting things have been released in the past month, good enough to share.
The guys who actually created the concept, and the platform behind the competition put together a video answering some questions. Which was nice, because before now communication was pretty lacking. For those of you who are semi-interested here is a linky to the beta website, where you can find the video and some other neat stuff. http://titanstrike.com/

On the front page they divulged a little more info about the final round etc
MISS VIDEO GAME ANNOUNCES FINALS MOVE TO ARCADIA FESTIVAL
DATE: May 28, 2007
Officials from Miss Video Game Incorporated (MVG) and the Arcadia Festival have officially announced today that the finals event for the Miss Video Game 2007 competition will be moved from its scheduled June date to be held in Montreal, Quebec at the Arcadia Festival (www.arcadiafestival.com) from November 9-11 2007. Both organizations have been working to link the events for some time, but made no public announcements until the agreements had been finalized.
The MVG finals will be a featured event during the 3 day gaming festival which attracted over 20 000 attendees during its 2006 edition. Arcadia Festival is the largest gaming event in Canada that celebrates gaming culture through musical, artistic, experiential and educational platforms all brought together in a fast-paced, fun-filled environment.
MVG co-founder Mark Donovan had this to say about the move, “We’re thrilled to be hosting our finals round at Arcadia. Anyone who has ever been to an event hosted by the promotions team behind Arcadia knows that they bring gaming to a new level both logistically and aesthetically. We believe that our vision for the future of gaming is highly aligned with the Arcadia team and our partnership will allow us to bolster our brand, technology and most importantly introduce the winner of Miss Video Game 2007 to 20,000 loyal gamers from across North America. I think that our five finalists will give the attendees of the festival a great show of hard-core gaming and add to the amazing atmosphere of the event.”
Arcadia Festival co- founder François Décarie expressed the following: “Hosting the Miss Video Game Competition is in line with our mission which is to bring together all walks of life related to gaming including top female gamers. I’m sure that the level of competition generated by the finalists would give a challenge to any gamer. We are excited about our partnership with MVG. This is just one element of what the Arcadia Festival will put forward to gaming enthusiasts this fall. Our focus revolves around providing experiences through high quality production and exciting programming.”

So next is the Second Round of play, in which I will compete against approximately 46-47 other female gamers in CounterStrike 1.6
So far we've been working with their platform in order to connect to CS servers, with little or no luck. They promised a fix for those who are having problems within the coming weeks.
This portion of the competition starts in 10 days, then the 1v1 play begins. I'm hoping the girls in the competition have some integrity and don't allow other "players" to play for them >.<
Anyways, wish me luck and I'll keep everyone updated.
