It's this weekend, already!
Posted by BloodyIron on .
Good news everyone!

Our event is THIS WEEKEND! Doors open at 10am Saturday and the first 5 people to attend get a free cpu magazine cloth mousepad! Before you come don't forget to review the list of what to bring, you can find a full list at the top of the event details ( http://www.lanified.com/events/details/6 ), but most importantly everyone must bring a legal ID and if you are under 18 a legal guardian must be present for check-in. We also recommend that before you come you try and clean up your system. We recommend you use Spybot Search & Destroy, Malwarebytes Anti Malware and Microsoft's Security Essentials (all free) to help clean up your system before you come. Virii and malware at LANs are no fun at all. This is also very important to do if you plan to fileshare during the event (don't let that gigabit networking go to waste!).

Also from now until noon Saturday we will be running another flash game challenge. The person with the highest score for the flash game Gimme Friction Baby ( viewtopic.php?f=27&t=109 ) will earn themselves a cloth Heroes of Newerth mousepad! To claim this mousepad you must be present at the event at noon. To report a score you must take a screenshot of your high score and post it as a reply to the thread in the forum. Please try to crop your picture to only show the game.

During the LAN we will be hosting a local only Minecraft build server. It will have a clean fresh new world for you to hack and slash at, and to build your monolithic figures on. Right now we are planning to have monsters on, pvp off, and we will be running it for the duration of the event. If you want to see any changes for this server please post on our forums ( http://www.lanified.com/forums/ ).


The tournament schedule for this event is as follows:

Starcraft 2: 1400hrs (2pm) Saturday
Team Fortress 2: 2100hrs (9pm) Saturday
Heroes of Newerth: 1200hrs (noon) Sunday


We will be broadcasting again this week, you might recognize our schedule:

Wednesday: 5pm - 9pm MST (GMT-7): Starcraft 2 King of the Hill
Last week we had some fantastic plays between entrants, this week should be a great opportunity for people to get some practice in before our event this weekend. To enter just join channel LANified! in-game and make sure you're ready when we call for our next contestant. The challenger chooses the map. The map list follows the ladder list but we allow competitive variants too.

Thursday: 5pm - 9pm MST (GMT-7): Heroes of Newerth King of the Hill
Once again we will be running a 5v5 King of the Hill event. We will be hosting the games on USE so if you ping well enough to USE servers we welcome you to assemble a team and enter. The easiest way to enter is to join channel LANified! in-game. It will be on Forests of Caldavar with Banning Pick and Tournament Rules enabled. Please try to organize your team in advance so that we can make this a smooth event. If you want you can use our mumble server for your team at voice.lanified.com (default port). If you need us to setup any channels for you, just let us know and we can get right on that.

To watch our broadcasts, as always, just head to http://www.lanified.com/networks , if you know anyone who would be interested in watching please feel free to pass the link around.


As a brief reminder, we still run several public servers which are open to anyone:
Mumble: voice.lanified.com
Team Fortress 2: tf2b.lanified.com (tf2a is in the works)
Minecraft: mine.lanified.com

If there's anything you want to see on these servers, just post on our forums and we'll see what we can do to help you.


Hope to see you this weekend!

Two KotHs and a Microphone
Posted by BloodyIron on .
Good news everyone, we have some great things going on!

First, we will be broadcasting again this week, check it out

Wednesday: 5pm - 9pm MST (GMT-7): Starcraft 2 King of the Hill
We will be hosting our KotH event again, open to anyone in North America! To enter just join channel LANified! in-game and make sure you are ready to play. The map list will follow the ladder list but we will also take variant requests such as MLG/iCCup variants.

Thursday: 5pm - 9pm MST (GMT-7): Heroes of Newerth King of the Hill
We will be bringing a completely new program to you this week with a Heroes of Newerth King of the Hill event. Think you got an ace team? Make sure you're in channel LANified! in-game and we'll pit your team versus any challenging team available. This will be a 5v5 King of the Hill event on Forests of Caldavar and we will be using Banning Pick mode with Tournament Rules enabled. To keep things simple and organized, if you want to enter please declare your captain and we will coordinate with them for your matches. This will follow along the same idea of our Starcraft 2 KotH in that if you lose you are out. So assemble your team and make sure you show up!

To watch our broadcasts, head to http://www.lanified.com/networks


Second, we are making some adjustments for our coming event

We are adjusting the prizing for Team Fortress 2 and Starcraft 2. Team Fortress 2 will go from a $120 first place prize pool, to a $120 first place/$60 second place prize pool. Starcraft 2 will go from a $100 first place prize pool, to a $100 first place/$40 second place prize pool. If we get enough pledges from our prepaid attendees these will bump up even further.

We will be adjusting our seating to accommodate 40 people total. If you are planning to attend (and have not prepaid) we recommend you arrive as early as possible to ensure your seat.

We have updated the Team Fortress 2 server configurations for the tournament, including the recent adjustment to the arena points. But more importantly we have added support for the Replay feature for all the tournament servers. This way you can grab that sweet rampage you just did at the drop of a hat.

Unfortunately our regular concession staff will not be able to make this event, so we will be providing an alternative concession. We are not able to offer everything that was previously offered, but we are trying our hardest to offer a good alternative. Please don't kill us over this, we're sorry.

Prepay closes tonight
Posted by BloodyIron on .
Hi everyone!

Just a quick reminder. Our event is 2 weeks away and prepay closes tonight. We have more people signed up than we can accommodate so if you were planning to come we highly recommend you prepay so we can guarantee you a seat. If you are having issues with prepaying we can make some accommodations if possible. To prepay just head to the event details (at http://www.lanified.com/events/details/6 ) and click on the prepay button then follow the steps. Do keep in mind that anyone coming who has not prepaid will be served in a first-come-first-served basis and we may run out of room. If we run out of room the only people who will be guaranteed a seat will be those who have prepaid.

Hope to see you there! :)

Less than three weeks
Posted by BloodyIron on .
Good news everyone! Our coming event will be our best one yet!


Within the last day we broke our record for sign-ups! As of this writing we sit at 47 sign-ups, and people just keep on coming. If you want to secure your seat we advise you to do so promptly, as prepay will close this coming Friday at midnight. Prepaying also enables you to pledge to unlock the higher prize pot for the tournament(s) you want to enter! The event is less than three weeks away, we can barely contain ourselves.


As you may know we recently revised our Starcraft 2 tournament. As such we have made some revisions to our Team Fortress 2 tournament. First, we added the maps koth_badlands and koth_lakeside_final to the list of playable maps. Second, we adjusted the points for arena. To win a round you must now reach 5 points, up from 4. To win the whole match your team must earn 8 points, up from 5. So to clarify, if your team were to gain 5 points the first round your team would then swap sides and start the second round, and if your team were to then earn 3 more points your team would win with a total of 8 points. We also have revised the list of banned weapons, the full list is:

  • Back Scratcher
  • Battalions Backup
  • Brass Beast
  • Candy Cane
  • Jag
  • Mad Milk
  • Natasha
  • Sandman
  • Vita-saw
  • Warrior's Spirit
  • Wrangler


Once again we will be broadcasting this week. This week's schedule will be the following.

Wednesday: 5pm - 9pm MST (GMT-7): Starcraft 2 King of the Hill

We are hosting our King of the Hill event again for Starcraft 2, open to anyone in North America! To participate join the in-game channel LANified! and make sure you are ready to enter in time for the broadcast. We will be using the same rules and map list as before.

Thursday: 5pm - 9pm MST (GMT-7): TF2 Pub Stomp

Come beat us up on our public server! We'll be playing on there making sure the kart doesn't move. To join simply connect to our public server at tf2b.lanified.com which is up all the time.

To watch any of these broadcasts head to http://www.lanified.com/networks


Just a few days ago S2 Games celebrated the 1 year anniversary of the release of Heroes of Newerth. As such they are letting anyone (yes even you) create accounts and play for free! This will be available until May 22nd at 12am EST. If you want to check out this quality game just head to https://www.heroesofnewerth.com/trial.php create an account and get cracking! There are also plenty of recent improvements including a guide system, which is really helpful for playing heroes you aren't familiar with. Oh, and did we mention it works in Windows, Mac OS AND Linux? What are you waiting for? IT'S FREE!


We would also like to remind those interested that we can be followed on facebook at http://facebook.lanified.com , which we post regular updates to our events. We also run a minecraft server at mine.lanified.com . And we are working our butts off to make this coming LAN party absolutely fabulous. So we hope to see you there!
