Though dismissed by many as unsurprising news, Union (formerly Studiobanks) emerged victoriously in the 1st round, 2nd round and overall champion of the first-ever Union-Carbonhouse foosball tournament.
After winning 7-5 in round 1 at Carbonhouse, Union kicked off round 2 with a string of four matches that closely resembled taking candy from a baby. Even after this stunning accomplishment, Union made yet another victory - a victory of displaying mercy. After growing somewhat weary of win-after-win, Union "lost" to Carbonhouse for a single, solitary match, finishing the second round 8-1. The Union-Carbonhouse tournament was a two-round Foosball tournament initiated by Carbonhouse after "calling out" Union in a series of confidential email correspondence between the two Interactive agencies' creative directors.
All bragging aside, this tournament was a great way for us to spend time with and get to know some of Charlotte's other creative interactive talent. As a competitor, we both admire and appreciate Carbonhouse's work and what they've done in helping establish Charlotte as a destination for high-quality interactive work. We can all learn some things from Carbonhouse's success - just not on the foosball table.
We look forward to next foosball tournament with Carbonhouse or any other agencies looking for a challenge.
