Come have a blast at our next two day LAN party, LANified! 18: Special Weapons, featuring a tournament prize pool of up to $800 cash and chaotic mini-tournaments; while still being stuffed full of relaxing social gaming!


But what is this LAN party about? Why should I attend?

LAN parties are where we all get together with our computers, form a network, and play ludicrous amounts of games! At our LAN parties we also feature main and mini-tournaments, in addition to the social gaming that organically flourishes.

LAN parties offer a friendly, social atmosphere where you can find other gamers to play with, make friends and generally have a blast with! We are all here to have a great time, so it is really easy to get caught up in the fun.


So I want to attend, what do I need to know?

If you plan to attend our event we recommend you sign up and prepay. First you login to your account (registration is free), and on this page hit the sign-up button. Then after you have signed up, come back to this page and hit prepay (in the same spot). There are advantages to prepaying, such as your seat being guaranteed if the event sells out.

What games will people be playing?

I want to play games other than the tournament games, am I still welcome?

You certainly are! We all love playing games of all shapes and sizes, and part of what makes LAN parties exciting is discovering awesome games new or old! You may even get caught up in games you've never even heard of before too!


I am new to competitive gaming, can I still enter the tournaments?

Everyone starts somewhere and we want to foster more people getting into competition. Competition like tournaments are a blast, even if you don't necessarily take first place! It's really easy to get into, and you may even build rivalries along the way! We design our tournaments to make it worthwhile for players of all skill levels to enter, so by all means, join up!
