The Admin Award is an award given to the team we felt showed the best sportsmanship in and out of game (from an admin perspective).
Japan were always very courteous on and off the servers during NC09. When a problem arose within their team, they handled it in a responsible and mature fashion. They always arrived early to their matches and never had to make the other team wait. Thank you guys for your great sportsmanship!
Pharfignewton Admin Award
Pharfignewton was a head admin in the Q3 TrueCombat League - and it was his idea to bring a Nations Cup tournament to TrueCombat. Sadly, a few weeks before the tournament began, he tragically passed away.
In his memory, we give this award to the admin who gave his time - and made an effort - week after week to ensure that the tournament ran smoothly with a fair & friendly attitude.
In NC09, we were very lucky to have many admins that fit this description. One admin stuck out in particular, and I'm pleased to announce that the NC09 Pharfignewton Admin Award goes to:
