Salt Flats is going to be a YUGE event with over 239 gamers already registered! There's going to be tonnes of Smash Bros stuff, other fighter game stuff, arcade gaming stuff, and so much more! You really NEED to be there!
Hell, you can even come down and test your might at our King of the Hill stuff we'll be running there. Show us what you got!
So either click the link to find registration, or register at the door. Either way, BE THERE!
We hope you're having a lovely holidays, and get to make some time for relaxing gaming!
As for what we're up to. Well, we're working on building a new year.
Not sure when it's launching, but we're working on:
- A new website
- A comms system better than Mumble (our ageing server)
- New ways to do gaming
- More YouTube stuff (not just promotions)
- Other shit! (not outlined below)
ReAn has worked his ass off with our current website. (We call it "Version 2.0"/v2). Unfortunately, despite his best effort, he has coded himself into a corner. So we are building a brand new website, based on open source tech, so it takes a lot less effort for us to do stuff. We're optimistic that we'll be able to do all sorts of new and fun stuff that we can't now! We'd prefer to make sure it works properly before spilling many details, but here's something that may work for now...
- It wont suck for mobile
- Better account system (no, we won't need your name/etc)
- It should look much better
- We can make many changes much faster!
We've been running our Mumble server for over 8 years now. We've seriously lost count. We know it's an old way to do things, and we've been exploring an alternative since about Q2 of 2018. We're hoping to be able to roll it out in the new year, but we're hammering out some key things before that can happen. These comms are anticipated to work on Windows/OSX/Linux/Android/iOS/Browser in a way that's synchronised between them. Text, voice, picture, tasty stuff. It'll be super easy to use too! : D
Ways to do gaming
We're going to be expanding how we do gaming events, primarily with the new website. When we say gaming by the way, we don't just mean video gaming ;^) We're going to be exploring some alternative formats for events, and other structured gaming stuff. So watch the skies, we want to bring you more!
Not sure if you noticed, but we recently used YouTube for some advertising. Initial results have been very positive. However, in addition to the Ads, we're going to be exploring more content, in hopefully helpful ways, for gamers, yay!
Sorry to be vague about all this, but we want to make sure it's done right. We don't want to get your hopes up and not deliver on promises. That's not fun, and we'd rather you have a fun time! : )
Stay warm! \o/
Folks, let's have a talk.
LAN parties cost money.
We can't pay for them if you don't buy tickets, and we try to be very clear about when ticket sales are cut off.
We know that people are worried about if we cancel LANs, but that will ONLY CHANGE if you folks actually buy tickets for LANs.
Seriously, it's that simple.
Not only that, if we cancel a LAN, we refund the ticket, minus the PayPal fee we get charged. On top of that, when we cancel a LAN, it still costs us money that we pay out of our own pocket (contracts).
If you like what we're doing, support us and buy tickets for the event. There's no risk.
If you don't like what we're doing. TELL US SO WE CAN FIX IT, PLEASE.
Please leave your feedback here : https://steamcommunity.com/groups/LANif ... ussions/1/
We take LAN parties seriously, and we hope you actually want them. We work really hard on them, and we want to fix anything you might not like about what we're doing. We want to always keep getting better, and we need your help.
Our next event will be in the new year, but we don't know when just yet. We're not giving up, but we're not sure when just yet. Please check back, and if you want to hear our promotions, consider signing up for the mailing list at the bottom of our main website and our youtube channel.
We appreciate your interest, so for those that are indeed interested, thanks. We hope to see you at our next event.
And if you're finding your finger hovering over the PrePay button next time, consider clicking instead of not.
Our next event, LANified! 31: Peanutbutter Surprise is only THREE WEEKS AWAY!!!
