- Weekly event prizing, and LANified! 10: pics
BloodyIron on Tue, November 29th, 2011 @ 6:25 am.
Time moves on, and with it we must move also.
Starting this week we will be adjusting some of our weekly formats, and the prizing for each. They are as follows:
EVERY Wednesday, Starcraft 2 1v1 King of the Hill, 7pm - 10pm MST:
Our format for this event will remain the shame. What is changing is that for every 3 wins in a row you will now win $15 CAD. All prizing is done through paypal.
EVERY Thursday, Team Fortress 2 3v3 King of the Hill^2, 7pm - 10pm MST:
Our format is changing in that we will no longer have a qualified and qualifying status. Going forward every single week will be open to the general public. At this time we did not see enough interest in qualified status, dispite the cash prizing, for it to be worthwhile. Furthermore, there will be prizing every week now. For every 3 wins in a row your team will win $15 CAD. Roster changes are disallowed completely, if someone needs to be replaced the counter will be reset. This is not negotiable, get your teams ready in advance please. All prizing is done through paypal.
To watch our weekly events just head to the networks page, or go to http://www.lanified.com/networks . To enter our Team Fortress 2 events jump on the IRC client built into the networks page. To enter our Starcraft 2 events jump in the channel "LANified!" and say you want to enter.
As most of you know, we recently held LANified! 10: Additional Pylons. As such, we have assembled the finest pictures known to man for this event, and grouped them in a tidy central storage location. You do not need to log in to see them: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set= ... 861&type=3
For those who attended, we would appreciate if you left feedback both good and/or bad in our thread for LANified! 10: viewtopic.php?f=20&t=811 So if you haven't already left feedback, please do.

- Minecraft reversion
BloodyIron on Wed, November 16th, 2011 @ 9:07 pm.
Hey Dudes and Dudettes,
We've been trying to deal with recent Minecraft server issues for the last few weeks. We're sorry that it has been garbage the whole time.
We will be reverting to a known good backup made on Nov 3 2011. I know this will revert a lot of work you folks have done, and we truly are sorry. It is not yet certain if this will resolve the issues we have been seeing but this backup was made when the server was known to be stable by multiple reports.
We do not yet have a conclusive cause of these problems, but we highly suspect people dropping large quantities of experience when dying. We have seen problems around this in the past, so please avoid dealing with experience as much as possible. If you suspect you are bloated with experience, please drop everything in your inventory in the nearest chest and jump into lava. This is no exaggeration, you need to nuke yourself and all the experience on you. It is not yet certain if the experience woes will be resolved in 1.9, but it is highly likely.
We appreciate your patience in this time, and welcome you to rejoin us on our lovely Minecraft server when this junk is resolved.

We aren't going to be able to run our broadcast tonight, as such we will be bumping the normally Qualified week this week to next week.
Enjoy your long weekend!
Also, we are working on the Minecraft server, sorry for the blatant outage

We will be working on the next one soon, so if you really enjoyed our LAN, bring your friends to the next one! Or pass it around, or tell someone, anyone! And if you didn't like it, tell us why so we can change that.
Going forward we also would like to remind you about our weekly events, they're online and with prizing! These events happen every week, and we broadcast each one LIVE.
Every Wednesday 7pm - 10pm: Starcraft 2 King of the Hill:
Two players enter, one remains, the king. Winning contestants stay in to face a constant stream of challengers, to maintain their supremacy and crown. But if you lose, you're out for the week. For every 3 consecutive wins you get $5, so that's $5:3/$10:6/$15:9, etc. This is open to players of all skill levels!
Every Thursday 7pm - 10pm: Team Fortress 2 KotH^2:
We run alternating weeks between qualified and qualifying weeks. Only teams who get qualified can play during the qualified weeks, but they are fierce competition, excellent to spectate. During the qualifying weeks however anyone can enter! During the qualified weeks, there is a $15 prize on the line, the winning team for each qualified week gets $15! If you want to practice your 3v3 game for our LANs, or try and get a team qualified for that sweet cash, then the qualifying week is for you. If you want to watch some fierce competition, then check out our broadcasts during our qualified week too. Rules and format: viewtopic.php?f=21&t=203 Registered teams (you need to register your team if you want to qualify): viewtopic.php?f=21&t=204
To watch any of our broadcasts, head to http://www.lanified.com/networks , or click on the networks tab on the LANified! page. Jump on our embedded IRC client to chat about what's going on too!
We also run several servers available to the general public:
