BYOC List Of Common Games

Hey everyone! I've looked at plenty of forum posts on the topic, but nothing definitive on the list of games that are commonly played at BYOC. I get that games like CS:GO, Overwatch, PUBG, and some of the newer favorites will be played there, but what about any older games like Doom, Quake, Starcraft, AoE, etc.? Any games that I should prepare my PC with before I bring it to PAX?

    I would say you have what I would say are some of the more popular games. But, as someone who does not attend I'm not sure about the older games although I feel something like Starcraft or Starcraft 2 would probably draw some interest. What I would say is before you get there make sure all games and Steam/battlenet is fully up-to-date.

    Hey guys! So I always try to assume that we are going to get the worst internet possible at East. In the next few days I'll be posting up a MEGATHREAD with most/all the info you need for BYOC. That being said, so LAN or low latency games to load up: Diablo, Diablo 2, Starcraft, Quake, Minecraft, TF2, CS

    We know for sure that we'll be doing a Diablo 2 "fun run" a themed Minecraft build over the weekend. Otherwise we'll be adapting the schedule based on internet.

    Hi all. I'm *so* happy (you have no idea) to be returning to BYOC after a long layoff (was here in 2010 and 2012...not since even though I do come to PAX East every year).

    I recently purchased a 4TB Western Digital Blue internal drive and am installing everything...and it is glorious. I highly recommend ($91 or so on Amazon Prime).

    One of many thoughts regarding BYOC this year: anyone want to team up for a co-op Red Alert 3 campaign play-thru?

    I'd also like to do some Apex Legends and Titanfall 2 if the bandwidth is up to it.

    And Doom.

    And Battlefront II.

    (I have a 4 and 2 year old, so my gaming time is severely constrained at home. And now I'm looking at four straight days of mostly non-interrupted play time. You name it I'll play it :)

    Funny thing: At PAX East 2010 BYOC I tried to get some people to play multi-player RA3. Nobody bit.

    So I'm down for RA3 this year.

    I will have the yearly post up soon now that I have the final stamp of approval for it. That RA3 play through sounds like a good time!

    I will load up RA3
