Oregon and Oregon State take the rivalry online with 24-hour LAN tournament


Now THAT’S how you settle a rivalry. It’s all Ducks and Beavers this weekend as far as any nerdly Oregonians are concerned, as the two universities are currently in the closing moments of a 24-hour LAN party where the schools’ respective gaming clubs have squared off in the following titles:

  • Command & Conquer 3
  • Counter Strike: Source
  • Dawn of War
  • Peggle
  • Team Fortress 2
  • Unreal Tournament 2004
  • Warcraft 3

The tournament started at noon Pacific yesterday and ends at noon Pacific today. Peter Ha went to one of these schools, but I can never remember which one. And after living out in the pacific northwest for five years, I’ve learned it’s best not to confuse the two – but still: Ducks, Beavers; Beavers, Ducks – same basic animal, right?
