How I heard about LANified:
- I don't remember, I think tuvok convinced me to come. It's been a while.
What I liked:
+The Chairs, sweet jibblets the chairs. They were so much better than any LANified I'd been to previously. You should make chairs that good mandatory or something.
+The attitude of everyone at the LAN was very jovial and friendly. There was no drama or any crap goin' on, just friendly gaming, asskickery and if you asked somewhat what they were doing, or playing, they'd tell you and maybe ask you to join. Doubleplusgood.
+The tournaments and contests were a lot of fun and it was fiercely competitive and friendly. Good prizes too.
+Fantastic livestream, the commentary was superb. Loved listening to it.
What I disliked:
-The cooling in the room I was in was crap, just gotta get that out there. You could be standing next to the door and you'd be nice and cool, but the second you were an inch away and walking towards, bam, wall of pure heat. It was nearly unbearable. I know you guys couldn't do anything about it, but it was awful.
-There was no concession. Admittedly, SAIT was a perfect distance to just about every kind of food around. Delicious, delicious food. But I liked that concession.
-There still isn't any really good way to get games going with a bunch of people without shouting at everyone, and that doesn't work all that great. Not many folks were on LANified IRC either, so that contributed a tad. It kept kicking me off as well.
- Seriously, it was way too goddamn hot in that room.
- There was a LOT of dead air on the stream.
I really thought this LANified was better than the others I've attended. I liked watching the games and the livestream. Even with the unbearable heat, everything about it was fantastic. Props for having it in such a nice location as well.
Next time, though, I'd prefer a single big room for LANified and some cooling or windows.
