Thank you Lems for your work coordinating the promotion of the exclusive SOI spoiler of Altered Ego on social media. This was one of those amazing things you consistently do that have a big impact on the community.

Raül RabionetL2, Spain

Raül Rabionet
L2, Spain

Thank you Raül for being proactive on the floor of day 2 at GP Barcelona. Amidst the chaos you were one of the few that again and again was seen taking care of things, asking for clarification when needed, and in general pushing forward to make the event succeed. It appears that it’s very easy to complain and point out problems, but you went above and beyond not only identifying where a problem could be found, but also providing solutions and feedback – and very important – doing so with a great deal of diplomacy, respect, and tact. It was great to see how much talent and skill you bring to the floor of professional events, and I definitely hope to cross paths with you soon again. Thanks!
