    Hey, 'sup ppl?

    After beating Xan's butt and entering the Trophy Room cinematic, you can see (in the red waving flags) the names of the former Tournament Champions.

    Here it is, the list:

    Champions:

    Xan Kriegor

    Pariah

    Geos Dryon

    Magnus

    Roan Terg

    Green Marine (maybe it's Malcom)

    Well, there's a lot of unknown names right there. Who is Pariah? Dryon? And Magnus?

    Where are them? Lost in space? Busy killing some Skaarj? Dancing in the new CityIntro disco? That's a mistery!

    That's very interesting, because I've never noticed that. Can you provide some screens of those?

    Yea, I didn't see anyone there too... Hey, I even set the ending sequence instead of the intro, and never noticed anyone... Though I set the trophy review instead of the full one, saw that one only one time. Still didn't see anyone there.

    Malcom beat Xan I think so I'd say he would be the next one on the list. As for the former champions, maybe they retired somewhere offworld.

    I'm guessing Green Marine is a reference to Doom, so perhaps the others are references to other games as well. I don't recognise any of them though... any ideas?

    Pariahâ„¢ - PC, Xbox, game by Digital Extremes
    Magnus - there is an Unreal Beta track called "Magnus".

    I never seen those names. But I know where these people are: stuck in the Unreality map pack, simple.

    Or they just won a training arena with DeathHunters...

    Wrong. Green Marine is actually a reference to an Epic staffer, namely, Brandon "GreenMarine" Reinhart.

    Not sure on the other three, though it is interesting to note Pariah later became a game, also made by Digital Extremes.

    These definitely aren't in the PC version....

    Or if so, you can't see them in the editor...

    Intriguing, never noticed these names.

    After opening randomly in unrealed the map "EOL_Domination.unr" (they are not on EOL_statue or i have missed them), i see effectively those names on the flags of that map, here are the unrealed screens :

    Funny that after 9 years, i always see new things in that game ;)

    I noticed that a month ago.

    Well, the tournament has to have some sort of backstory. It says in the intro "it's been 50 years since the founding of deathmatch". Some of those names are probably nicknames of some of the game developers.

    An easter egg! :) Almost all versions of Unreal had them. U1, UT, U2...
