As you might notice the next event is more than a few months away. Despite this we are still working on things to make sure everything goes along properly.
As always we are looking to expand the site. Some of the next features we're going to work on are expanding the Prepay features, adding a proper media section, redesigning key information in the event details, expanding our game section and so much more.
For those who have not yet realized, we're on Facebook! If you want to find it, just head to facebook.lanified.com. We want to use Facebook as a way to help spread the word of our events as well as enable additional ways to commuicate with those who enjoy our great events.
Oh and for those who might have missed it, registration and prepay for our next event is open! Just click on the banner above to find out more.
Another heads up, don't forget that Starcraft 2 comes out July 27th! Several of us here have already played and quite enjoyed the beta. I for one am very eager to get my grubby paws on the retail copy. I have my prepaid receipt in hand!
Well hope to see you there!

So we corrected the date/time issue we were seeing on our site, and it should be proper now. If you are still seeing some issues then first check your time zone is set properly in your forum profile and if it continues please let us know with a post on the forum.

Well for those who may not realize it, we have another event coming up: LANified! 7: Down Right Fierce. To check the details just click the banner above, or go to the events section. Our coming event is a lot like our March event, but our first change is the addition of Starcraft 2 to the tournament list. We have other things that we're working on, but they are not yet finalized and as such we would rather they be polished before we say we're going forward with them. If you have any questions about the upcoming event feel free to post on our forums or comment on this news post.
Just to clarify some things:
LANified! will not enforce any dress code unless you do not have something equivalent to pants/skirt and a shirt minimum. Clearly the mere suggestion of forethought of attire is too hot of a topic to openly discuss.
If you have any issues with the behavior of another person at our events it is best that you speak with me (BloodyIron) immediately.
As for sportsmanship within competition, we will execute judgements if teams/players are found to be overly disruptive or poor sports.
- Well that was pretty cool.

So we recently completed our latest event, and boy was it great! For those who missed it, we had about 23 attendees show up (1 did not check in). This does not include staff or food services. For those who did make it, we want to thank you for coming and hope to see you again! If you would like to provide feedback in any way please post in our feedback forum section.
While we had a few hiccups with tournaments, they went smoothly otherwise. We will be working harder to avoid such mishaps in the future, and hope it wasn't too much of a bother. As for the results of the tournaments, we will be working to get them up on the site in a useful manner, but we are uncertain when this will be just yet. The rest of the event went well and we certainly did get a lot of casual gaming in. While we had a fairly large Serious Sam game going, I somehow remember the original being bigger and more epic.
Going forward we are working on our next event. Dates are not yet finalized, but we are trying to get everything sorted out quickly here so we can start preparing for it. It will likely be at the same location.
Thanks for coming folks!

So I was munching on my breakfast sandwich while watching CnetTV and during the buzz report Molly was talking about how Apple is suing HTC for patent apps, and I happened to get this screen cap:
I thought this was absolutely hilarious, and I'm quite surprised ABC (the parent company) let this slip through. Boy am I glad there is still adult humor in the world.
Onto other news, our LAN is almost here. We're aiming to get setup late tonight to make sure when the doors open tomorrow (10am) that everything is already running properly. As such, we want to remind you to DOUBLE CHECK that you bring everything you need. It's always a pain to forget just one thing that would really help to have (such as a mouse pad). If you are not sure what to bring, take a look at the list we have in the event details. And please make sure that anyone coming both attending or spectating brings PHOTO ID including birth date. This is very important as we are allowing alcohol on-site as well as minors to be on-site. We want to allow adult enjoyment while not excluding minors (with the exception of consuming alcohol), so please be conscious of this.
If you have any questions feel free to post on our Forums.
Hope to see you there!
