Heya all,

 

Would anyone be interested in participating (and possibly organising) a fun LAN of sorts? I'm thinking UT2004, Quake, maybe CoD4 or even some AoE... some good old school fun

I throw in a venue, helping hands and overall management of the event - how does that sound?

Any takers?

well - attendance I would say primarily. Maybe an admin could create a poll so interested members can choose the best Friday-Sunday period? Say 16-18 March, or 23-25 March (just examples) etc..?

Then eventually a couple of servers (possibly sponsored) and a handful of prizes/tokens

Then network gurus, admins, and helping hands.

Re venue I think I can book it against a reasonable fee - comes with 3-phase power and a fully-equipped kitchen, and I can find staff for a bar

Can't you get a venue with internet, and the players then will play on our normal servers? (We'll close them to be used for the LAN) or will that be a bad idea in a LAN?

BDW - talking from past experiences, usually it's very hard to get people to come to a LAN since they prefer to stay at home ......

If you want a fun lan the best thing to do is find games that are rarely played in Malta but played competitively outside Malta. Instead of the usual COD we could play something like Team Fortress , Heroes of Newerth (not LoL), etc in which teams will not come to the lan to win but to have fun and try out new games. Something like this was organized some 2 years ago by Hackers were people tried out new games for the first time (It was a no cod day). Well I haven't attended a LAN in 2 years myself and it would be a nice experience to play for fun. Though I sincierly believe that team games would attract more people to the LAN than individual games. Looking forward for updates, keep us informed if there is any progress.

As for help, sorry but I wouldn't be able to because of exams which I have to take. I cannot afford to concentrate on other things right now. Still I'll happily spread the word about the LAN if it will actually take place.

I think games we can discuss at a later stage - what I anted is just to have an idea how many would be interested in a 2/3-day event such as this, and whether they would be willing to get friends or help out in the administration of the event.

Hopefully if a couple more members give positive feedback like Chowz did we can really get the ball rolling
