The GameMaster kicks off the action...

...the teams started getting busy right off the bat...

...and even intrusive photographers
did not distract them!

Of course, some visitors can get a little too close for comfort :)

Airodump-ng made the usual appearance early in the game...

AIRRAID3 Photo

...and teams started finding all manner of APs.

Analyzing a clue.

30 minutes into the game and not a single score!
AIRRAID3 Photo

Then we started seeing some results...

...Which drew immediate attention from other teams.
AIRRAID3 Photo
AIRRAID3 Photo
More audience started arriving...
AIRRAID3 Photo

...and the contestants responded by whipping out more hardware! (like this extended range omni-directional antenna)

A Prolink USB 802.11 adapter in use (this particular model is supported by the OSWA-Assistant)

And we caught an iPad in use! (whatever for, we don't know :) )

Midway through the game, Team Air Force One from Thailand secures a big-ass point objective...
AIRRAID3 Photo

...and takes a commanding lead as shown on the scoreboard!
AIRRAID3 Photo
This forced some teams to take up the more "active" Kamikaze challenges to try to keep pace with the Thai team...

"Look here, I found this - does it count??"

Most of the teams started getting mobile...

Errr, boss is asking where I am.... :P

5 hours into the game and look at the concentration power displayed by the various teams!

Juggling work and play.
AIRRAID3 Photo
Hold on, i think we lost something...
AIRRAID3 Photo

Let's hook this gizmo with that widget and see whether the thingamabob works, ok?
AIRRAID3 Photo
Caught in the hack.
AIRRAID3 Photo
Somewhere just past the halfway mark, we started to notice that a few teams had started to collaborate and share information with each other...
(hey, it's not prohibited by the rules so it's not illegal - and teams should remember that we did tell you "anything not forbidden is allowed" during the briefing! ;) )

AIRRAID3 Photo
...with easily-noticeable and obvious results. :)
AIRRAID3 Photo
After noticing this as well, some other teams also started forming little cooperatives of their own, albeit a little later in the game.
However, about half the field still continued to rely solely on the efforts of their own team-members till the very end (maybe as a personal grudge-match to try to bust our infrastructure open? :) ).

AIRRAID3 Photo
No, i think your summer is still doing fine.
AIRRAID3 Photo
On the other hand, my teammate here needs some expert advice!
AIRRAID3 Photo
At the networking layer,
we saw some teams use Metasploit...

AIRRAID3 Photo
...with Cain & Abel also making an appearance!
AIRRAID3 Photo
More floor action.
AIRRAID3 Photo
The color-commentary team from Singapore Polytechnic continued interviewing various teams' members.

Wide smiles even under pressure!

Then the scores started coming in hard and fast...

AIRRAID3 Photo And now, a word from your local partner...don't change that channel!

After seeing their massive early lead evaporate in the last hour of the game, Team Air Force One goes on a mobile runaround rampage!

Notice other teams also trying to complete the same objectives...
Some tried their hand at tackling Bluetooth-related Kamikazes...
AIRRAID3 Photo
AIRRAID3 Photo
    ...but hardware/software configuration problems put a stop to that.
    (hint to teams: next time, to avoid this problem, use the OSWA-Assistant instead. We've seen this problem before and put in some scripts that fix it ;) )

5 minutes from the end of the game and here comes the "Terminators" team proving that they attained an objective...
AIRRAID3 Photo
AIRRAID3 Photo
...and obviously happy with scoring the points, as evidenced by the fist-pump. :)
AIRRAID3 Photo

That score put the Terminators in 4th place, further displacing earlier leaders Air Force One, with the cooperating trio of Peanut, Tprotocols and Pukimonz apparently firmly entrenched in the top 3 slots.
But, as we've seen with all our previous AIRRAID tournaments, it isn't over till it's over!

AIRRAID3 Photo
Wouldn't you know it?
With just 60 seconds left, here comes Team Air Force One!

AIRRAID3 Photo
And, guess what, here comes Team Dino to back them up!
They've taken a page out of the Peanut-Pukimonz-Tprotocols cooperation playbook!

The final score is:
