The first DCS has been concluded, and everyone who participated deserves a well-earned rest. I personally think the event went really well. The streaming setup was fully functional for the entire duration of the event, and we've even managed to pull in a few international viewers from the American and French ITG scene. As far as I could tell there were no real technical issues in general, and everyone was able to start and finish their session right on schedule.
As for the tournament results, I think we've really managed to show as the Dutch ITG community that we've matured in terms of stamina. As far as I know this was the first real stamina focused tournament in the Netherlands, and the level of difficulty has been far higher than any of the other recent Dutch DDR/ITG tournaments. Nevertheless, all the players managed to fill up most of their 1 hour session by stomping out 12s and 13s, back to back, hardly taking any breaks, and generally pushing themselves to the limit. I'm very proud of the effort everyone put in. The final rankings are as follows:DCS 2017 Scoresheet
