LANified! invites you to our next great event, LANified! 13: The Swarm. This event is a two day LAN party, consisting of casual gaming, tournaments, file sharing, on-site concession and plenty of prizes.


But what is a LAN party?

LAN parties are gaming events where people bring their computers (desktops or laptops) to a designated location and connect them all in one network. Our event will also have a console tournament on-site in addition to computer space.


Okay, that sounds interesting, why should I haul my rig to such an event?

It is true, it can sometimes be a pain to move your computer, but there are great things going on at LAN parties. There will be plenty of other people there who love gaming and want to play games with you. You'll be able to discover games you haven''t seen before, form teams to compete in tournaments and win cash, stay up late playing crazy mods together, swap files at blazing gigabit speeds and so much more. Our LAN parties offer a continual event where you get to come and have a lot of fun with other gamers, you might even make some friends.


You sold me, I want to go, what do I need to know?

If you plan to attend our event we recommend you sign up. You make an account (or use one if you already have one), then on this page hit the sign-up button once you've logged in. If you are absolutely certain you are attending we highly recommend you prepay. Once you sign up, go back to this page, then hit prepay, it's in the same spot, the rest should be a breeze. Prepaying guarantees you a seat and is more affordable than our at the door price.


Once the event rolls around we recommend you consider the following things to bring and not to bring:

What to bring:
  • Yourself
  • Your PC or Console (We will provide Consoles for the Console tournaments)
  • Your joystick/Gamepad of choice if you plan to enter any of the console tournaments
  • Power bar (Must have a working ground pin)
  • Mouse Pad, Mouse, Keyboard, and any other controllers you might want to use
  • Food or money for food (We will have a concession on-site)
  • Headphones (no speakers)
  • Games (do not forget to bring cd-keys as well as original disks in case you need to re-install)
  • Sleeping supplies (pillows, blankets/sleeping bags, toothbrush, DEODORANT, etc)
  • Picture ID which shows age (required for check-in at the event)

What not to bring:
  • Drugs
  • Alcohol
  • Bad Attitude
  • Fridges
  • Coolers


What games will people be playing?

As people sign up for the event we ask them what games they want to play. Once they have signed up, the games they selected are added to a list. We tally up that list and present it at the bottom of the event details page under "Game Preference". As more people sign up this list grows and changes, it is updated in real time! We also want this list to help people find other gamers who like similar games.


I just want to enter your console tournament, do I really need to bring my computer?

No, you do not. Our console tournaments have stations which consist of a display, a gaming system, the game for the tournament, and speakers. You will need to bring your own controller, everything else will be provided. You will even have plugs to connect your own personal headphones to if you want to ensure your ability to hear game sounds.

However, we welcome you to join us if you decide to change your mind and bring your computer any ways.

With so many people at the event, is there a good way to find people to play with?

It is important to remember that if you see someone playing a game and want to join in, you really should just ask them. However, if you need some more help, we recommend you head to our networks page ( http://www.lanified.com/networks ) and scroll down to the "LANified! Chat" part. Enter your nickname, hit Connect, and it will put you in an IRC chat room. It is straight forward text chat and we encourage all attendees to use it. If you want to change your nickname just do a /nick (newnickname) example /nick BloodyIron.

Are there rules?

There are rules for each tournament, if you plan to enter a tournament you must review them. As for general event rules, they are:
  • All participants of the computer LAN will be allocated one "unit" of space, which is approximately 1m width of table space extending to the front & back of the table. While there's room for leeway, you will be asked to organize your space if seating is tight.
  • Smoking is only allowed in the parking lot. You cannot smoke indoors, outside the entrance, or on the grass or walkway up to the entrance.
  • People are allowed to come and go as they see fit. However, property cannot leave the hall between the hours of midnight (0000hrs) and 8am (0800hrs). Your property (more specifically whatever bags/equipment/supplies you bring) will be barred exit during these hours.
  • Headphones are required, considering this please be respectful of others regarding sound. You must also be cautious of noise outdoors after 10pm. If you are rowdy you will be asked to leave at our discretion.
