Hey Folks.

Sorry it's taken so long, but we're back! As in, we have LAN parties again, yay!

These events are being held at the fabulous Clarion Hotel & Conference Centre!

That means you will be able to book convenient hotel rooms at the event, have plenty of parking, on-site food and drink services, oh and TONNES OF GAMING TOO!!!

But BloodyIron, what took you so long?
As you may recall, in 2016, we tried something new for us, a massive 300 gamer LAN. And... it didn't work out. Since then, we have had massive hurdles arranging facilities for our events. We have spent over a year trying to find facilities for our events, and finally we found the fabulous folks at the Clarion Hotel! While they haven't hosted a LAN party before, they are excited to make this happen, and so are we. We have gone through all the details and figured them out, power, network, internet, all sorts of stuff. Just so we can get back to running awesome LAN parties for you again!

But wait, there's more...

Not only are we running LAN parties again... we're BROADCASTING THEM LIVE TO THE WORLD!!!

Our professional grade production setup and staff are going to be putting on a fabulous show for those who want to watch, anywhere in the world. If you want to check them out, you can watch at : https://networks.lanified.com/


MORE LANS
In addition to this, we are going to be hosting LAN parties a lot more regularly. Exactly how regular is not yet 100% hammered out, but we're aiming to run one LAN party a month, with different tournaments at each. We don't like how long we went without running LAN parties, and we want to work our butts off to make sure that doesn't happen again! What we have been hearing is that people want more LAN parties, so we're doing that.

Prepay is broken, but not for long
Now, while the event registration is open, prepay is not working correctly. We are working to fix this, and we are currently anticipating it to be operational in about a week from this posting. But I'm afraid you will need to be patient while we fix it. Until then, you can sign up for the LANs, and hopefully tell others about them too. ;)

Forum access is read-only, for now
A while ago we had to deal with a deeply-rooted spam problem. Part of the solution to that was disabling all members from being able to post on the forums. We're sorry that we had to do that, but sometimes that's what it takes. We are planning to bring that access back real soon. Until then, we can be reached a whole bunch of ways, such as our STEAM group ( http://steamcommunity.com/groups/LANified ), Twitter ( https://twitter.com/lanified ), and others.

Sharing is Caring
If you like what we're doing, and want to help, the best thing you can do is spread the word. Letting others know is the best way you can help us make these events successful. So if you know anyone that might want to come, let them know!

Day to Day Gaming Services
It is a new day for LANified!, and we're coming back to you not only with awesome LANs, but we're going to be overhauling the day to day gaming services we provide too. For example, are you aware we now have a professional phone system? While we may not be at the phone every hour of the day, you can call us at 403-457-2279, and we'll help you out as best we can. This includes IT Services, not just Gaming services. So, if you get stuck with something we run, let us know, and we'll get you sorted. Some of the details for what we're overhauling are not yet ready for public consumption, but we have some seriously cool stuff baking in the oven. We're excited to bring them to you, and hope you enjoy them when they are ready. ;)


Hope to see you at the next LAN! :D

We're not dead!
Posted by BloodyIron on Tue, July 4th, 2017 @ 6:27 pm.
Hi Folks,

We haven't hosted a LAN party in quite a while, and we're not okay with this. We're sorry that it has taken so long for us to get an event together, but please rest assured that we are continually trying to fix that!

So what's getting in our way right now? Facilities.

Since about November of 2016, we have been working continuously to find appropriate facilities for LAN parties, and let me tell you, it's still the hardest part of running these kinds of events. There are many facets to LAN parties that make many facilities unfit.

As such we wanted you to know that we aren't dead. While we don't yet have LAN parties ready for you, we have however ran computer gaming tournaments at the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo 2017. We are also working on other areas of gaming services. But despite all that, finding appropriate facilities for LANs is one of our highest priorities right now.

Please bear with us, we are working hard behind the scenes to put together awesome events. We too are chomping at the bit for a LAN party. So we recommend you check back periodically.

-BloodyIron

Rocket League adjustments
Posted by BloodyIron on Sun, April 30th, 2017 @ 1:00 am.
For the Rocket League tournament, at the Calgary Expo 2017, we didn't quite get enough teams to properly run the Professional Gaming Tournament.

The teams that did register have already been issued their refunds, and we're sorry this didn't quite work out.

Instead we will be hosting a Rocket League 3v3 Tournament anyways! Entrance will be included with your Calgary Expo admission, and there will be some prizing, but not as much as originally planned.

To get in on it, just head to the Altalink building on Sunday EARLY and get your team registered! If you want help getting in a team, let us know and we'll try to figure it out.

Additionally the finals for the King of the Hill tournaments will be on Sunday, so come cheer on the fierce action!

League of Legends adjustments

We did not quite get enough teams for the League of Legends Professional Gaming Tournament to go forward.

The teams that did register have already been issued their refunds, and we're sorry this didn't quite work out.

That being said, it's not all bad! Instead we are going to be hosting a League of Legends 5v5 tournament anyways! Entrance will be included with your Calgary Expo admission, and there will be some prizing, but not as much as originally planned.

If you want to get in on this sweet action, head to the Altalink building on Saturday EARLY and get your team registered! If you want help getting in a team, let us know too and we'll see what we can do. :^)

Also, be sure to check out our Counter-Strike: Global Offensive 3v3 Demolition mode King of the Hill tournament too! It's a blast, and also included with your Calgary Expo admission.

Sorry the original plan didn't work out folks, but we think this will still be loads of fun. So come on down, check it out, and join in on the fun! See you there! :^D
