- LANified! seeking
BloodyIron on Tue, January 19th, 2016 @ 11:17 pm.
LANified! can't operate without staff. Since we're growing, we need more help. Here is the kind of help we're looking for:
We gotta keep people safe, and their stuff safe too. Not much to it, keep the peace, keep the gaming going. No headphones. For those working over-night your job expands into keeping the party pumping, engaging those who are awake, and stuff like that.
With how many people we are going to handle we need help checking them in in a timely fashion. Make sure people fill out the waiver, only grant access to those authorized, straight-forward.
Setup AND teardown:
With how much equipment we deal with, we need help setting it up and tearing it down. Generally all staff help with setup and teardown.
All sorts of things happen at the LAN, even small questions, or fixing computers.
We're looking for people prepared to perform several of these tasks per LAN, being staff isn't just one of these. Also, we're looking for long-term staff who will help with multiple events per year. All of our staff positions are volunteer only, we cannot pay you. However we can provide you valuable experience that you can put on your resume, and exceptional staff sometimes get references. We deal with many interesting things, and we want to do great things in this world. If you want to be a part of great gaming, be sure to email us and tell us what you want to do and why you think you're a good fit. Be sure to tell us any relevant experience too : bloodyiron _)at)_ lanified ->dot>- com

- LANified! Bootcamp Program - Phase 1.1 (revised) + Plaques
BloodyIron on Thu, January 14th, 2016 @ 9:38 pm.
We're revising a few details for the Bootcamp Program, as well as clarifying what exactly it is (sorry about that). Also, "Best in Calgary" plaque presentation pics for team "KQLYFornia" for LANified! 22 below!
Bootcamp Program Revision Phase 1.1:
- Schedule changing from Sat+Wed 8pm -> Sat+Tue 8pm (effective immediately)
- Reeling back on the established team stuff for now
What is the LANified! Bootcamp Program?
It is meant to serve three primary functions:
- Help players form/find teams (temporarily or long-term)
- Help players/teams practice, in a fashion similar to our tournaments, with nothing on the line, on local high-quality servers
- Help players share/receive info on how to get better
What does Phase 1 mean?
We plan to expand the provided services over time, through phases.
Who should participate?
Individuals and teams. We are stopping the team registration for the time being, to simplify things. We want to attract as many people to this as possible. Try jumping on csgo1.lanified.com:27020 to check your ping.
Who should NOT participate?
We want to keep this as welcoming as possible. If you treat others in unsportsmanlike ways, or cause other problems, you will probably not be welcome.
When is it?
Every Saturday and Tuesday starting at 8pm MST (GMT-7). Generally goes till we run out of people.
How do I participate?
- Connect to our public mumble server (voice.lanified.com default port)
- Jump in the "Teaam Forming" Channel that is in the "Counter-Strike" channel
- Tell a Bootcamp Administrator you want to participate, they will then determine where to place you
Who are the Administrators?
Will the Bootcamps be broadcasted?
Yes, but at this time we will not have commentary or personalities involved in the broadcast. Typically we will broadcast the perspective of one team at a time, and include their mumble chatter.
To watch just head to -> http://tv.lanified.com
Here we have LANified! presenting the "Best in Calgary" custom plaques to the Team Captain "Jonzy", who's team "KQLYFornia" placed 1st in the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive main tournament at LANified! 22: Glock Blocked:
