Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    I have one to two spots in my car for the LAN next weekend. I'm planning to leave at ~6pm Friday. PM me if you'd like a ride.

    Spectre was looking for a ride, did he PM you?

    <MoeFwacky> besides, BigRed-Worky is right
  • HeleorHeleor SeattleRegistered User regular
    He did, but he never responded after the first time. That's the reason for 1-2?

    Due to some overheard bitching about the fast sellout... yes the LAN went live at the same time on all medium (all the forums its been posted on/twitter). Other people are just better at checking forums :P

    Sorry for the late notice Red but I won't be making it to the LAN. Business just decided to get really busy for this weekend. :/

    If there's anyone headed to the LAN in the later eve, please drop me a PM here (or an email or text if you have mine, all of these will be checked throughout my day). I'll be at my place ready to go in the 7pm range (perhaps a little earlier, but at least then). If I can snag a ride, gas monies will be provided, otherwise, I'll just try to ping someone already there, or, worst case, take the bus.

    But dammit, I'll be there one way or the other or the other!

    If you are busing you can borrow a monitor if it makes it easier for you.

    Will do, but it's still looking like ~7. I'll ping Dya and go from there if I don't hear from anyone else.

    Next LAN signups will go live this Wed at 11am.

    Cost will be $25, drinks will be provided. I will be making Tequila Tacos for everybody on sat evening.
    Also I will make sure we have a private BF3 server available to play on. (AKA, BF3 will be a requirement to have. I feel bad when not everyone can play together).

    December 16th - 18th LAN PARTY:
    WinterWonderLAN!

    If you aren't signed up for the LAN please don't stick around for very long, you are welcome to swing by to say hi to people but thats it. Its a Paid event with limited space. You wouldn't sneak into PAX without a Pass would you? Same deal here :P
    Don't get offended if I ask you to leave. This is a PAID EVENT, not a SHOW UP AND HANG OUT PARTY.

    WHEN:
    December 16th @ 3:30pm - 18th... till whenever I throw your asses out so I can get sleep for work the next day :P (probably around 8pm-ish)

    4229926621_5d065ce11a.jpg


    LAN entry is $25
    FOOD ON SAT EVENING AND POP WILL BE PROVIDED. Tequila tacos on Saturday for dinner :D
    I require paypal payment within 1 week of signup or else you are getting bumped.
    You are also REQUIRED to own battlefield 3. We will have a private server for this LAN. I am renting one for the month of December. Assuming my local LAN server sponsorship falls through :P

    Reasoning for requirement to own that game:
    Spoiler:

    Will be at my place, if you don't know where I live PM me for the addy.
    Max 28 people (thats all that we can fit here for computers)
    Bring computer, monitor, keyboard, mouse, power strip, and cables (Power, video, etc).
    LAN is 21+ (If you feel you are an exception, plead your case to me via PM)
    Crash space is available (I have 8 sumos, a couch, and lots of floorspace), as are showers. (I suggest bringing a towel, I have many but not enough for everyone). New rule, if you snore loudly enough to disturb others, then sleep in the downstairs. I am sick of people complaining.
    Chairs for the LAN are provided. If you are planing on bringing your own chair please ask me first.

    I AM LIMING THIS BECAUSE PEOPLE COMPLAIN EVERY LAN THAT ITS TOO COLD WHEN ITS 70F IN THAT DAMN ROOM.
    The LAN room heats up thats for sure, but with the cooler weather in fall/winter things shouldn't be too bad. I will have the fans in place on low. If you get cold easily then bring an extra layer. Room will be kept around 65-70f. You are warned in advance so no complaining! It is your responsibility to warm yourself up if you get cold at room temp.

    Also if you must smoke please do it out by the road/storage building. If its done near the house, the smell will come in some of the many open windows and I will rage.


    ALSO I HAVE A KEGERATOR
    Beer that will be on tap is (likely) IRISH DEATH. If it dies before the LAN I will probably be ordering a Bitburger keg or something else german.

    Beer will be $2 a pint. Beer is priced so I break even on the keg.

    OM NOM BEER:
    4383187158_6e66174670.jpg

    Previous house party rules apply:
    (no getting sick, you want access to liquor stash you donate a bottle to the stash, no being stupid, no showing up sick)

    I will have 3 gaming machines available for use... Might have more if I can fix them before the event.
    Rules for them are:

    1) You don't have a gaming PC but want to attend the LAN
    2) If you are traveling from out of state and are unable to bring a gaming rig
    3) If you have a crappy PC that can play the games but just barley (if your machine is crappy then I want to see some system specs to judge crappiness)

    Rental fee for these is a sixer (or a single awesome bottle) of something delicious. Ask me for what will tickle my fancy if you want to use one of these.

    (Spots set aside for new people who have never been to one of these LANs before, so new people can attend) If these aren't taken a week before the LAN then ill open them up to anyone. Just want to give some new people a chance to attend.
    1: Moradeth (Paid)
    2: Ducas' +1 (Paid)
    3: CrazyRob
    4: Sammich's +1 (Paid)


    Canceled List:
    Spoiler:

    Standby List:



    Payment is accepted by paypal. If you choose to use paypal you must pay the paypal transaction fee.
    My paypal is reasonablylucid@gmail.com

    If there are people playing MMOs or other online games by themselves I *will* be blocking the ports to said games. Its just super bad form to be doing that shit at a LAN that's only 28 people. Its ok if everybody is busy with other small games, but its bad form if we are all trying to get a large game going and you are sitting there playing WoW or LoL.
    Things like LoL and WoW will be blocked on the router until later at night or during times of smaller games going on, like L4D2, SC2, or Flatout.

    If the people that don't have BF3 still don't have it a week before the LAN you will sadly be bumped (/w full LAN refund) since theres likely to be a huge list of people on the waiting list again.

    Troll those black Friday sales!

    Also everyone has a week to send me the LAN $$. I need it this far in advance so I can shop around for stuff, plus I am ultra busy with a few other things right now.

    I'm going to be running a LAN early 2012 (January or February), with all of the proceeds going to charity.
    There will be food and drink and also (hopefully) some sick schwag, both as door prizes and for raffles.

    This is just a preliminary post, as semantics such as venue or exact date haven't been figured out yet, but I thought it would be best to let people know what's going on!
