National Macintosh Gaming Championship { cyril }

It is almost time for the 1999 National Macintosh Gaming Championship, which will take place July 21-23 at the MacWorld Expo in New York City. During this championship there will be over two dozen tournaments, including 4 centered around our favorite game developer, Bungie. There is a Myth II, Myth II Team, Marathon, and Marathon Team tournaments. The games will be played on a couple of screaming fast 450 mhz G3 Towers with BSG Laboratories Intensor Sensory Chairs. Now prizes. You just can't have a Championship with out them, and this one is no different. The grand prize in this Championship is a new G3 Tower, a 17" monitor, one of those spiffy Intensor Sensory Chairs with a subwoofer, and an all-expenses paid trip to MacWorld San Francisco in 2000. Thats enough to make me want to visit New York this summer. Best of all entry is free provided that you are a registered attendee of MacWorld New York. For more information and to resistor visit

Saturday June 5th Password Scam { Pie-rat }

Making its way around the Myth community is an e-mail asking for one's Login and Password. The e-mail claims it is from Bungie and the password is needed due to an error.

This is NOT real.

If you get an e-mail from a account requesting your password, DO NOT GIVE IT TO THE SENDER. If you have already given the sender your password by accident, go to the Website and change your password immediately.

If your password has already been changed, report it to Bungie.

Thanks to The Townhall for spotting this.
