La$er Joins Frozen Sand
FrozenSand would like to welcome La to the team. He is an enthusiastic Urban Terror movie maker and will be making promotional movies for the team. You can view his work at his Youtube channel
His first project with FrozenSand will be to run the following video contest:
Urban Arts Competition 2013
The competition is entirely managed by our new Dev Team member La$er, together with rlnqq on behalf of FrozenSand. It is the first time that they have organized this type of competition and they would appreciate if you are patient with them. They will try their best to make the entire contest as pleasant as possible for you. But just to make it clear we prefer a reasonable conversation instead of pointless whining. Always keep in your mind, the more you flame, the less you get.
Check out the trailer for the contest.
