Hey, you! Yeah you! Did you realize our next event, LANified! 22: Glock Blocked, is less than two weeks away?
Yeah, that's pretty soon! But did you also realize that prepay was scheduled to close yesterday?
What!? You missed your chance to prepay? Well, fret not, we've got you covered.
As of right now we are extending prepay, for this event, till Wednesday the 9th of September! (end of day)
While we have a good number of people prepaid and signed up (even better than last time), we need more! Besides, don't you really want to hit that sweet sweet 30 prepay bonus? We sure do!
We know you want to get in on that fabulous CS:GO and TF2 action, we know this because you keep telling us! Now help us help you, let's try to fill the place, prepay today, before it's too late!

- Our second half of 2015, THREE more LAN parties!
BloodyIron on Sun, August 2nd, 2015 @ 3:41 am.
Greetings fellow gamers! 2015 has been a productive year for us, but we're not done just yet! Again, we are announcing THREE events! Again, all of which you can secure your seat for RIGHT NOW!
Not only that, but we are extending our Best in Calgary series to all three of these events!
Ladies and Gentlemen, LANified! is proud to announce our next three events:
(click on the banners for each event details page)
- Counter-Strike: Global Offensive - Main tournament - Cash prizing up to $700 + "Best in Calgary" plaque awards!
- Counter-Strike: Global Offensive - Arms Race Mini-tournament
- Team Fortress 2 - 3v3 KotH format - Mini-tournament
- DotA 2 - Main tournament - Cash prizing up to $700 + "Best in Calgary" plaque awards!
- DotA 2 - TBA - Mini-tournament
- Age of Empires 3 - 8 Player FFA - Mini-tournament
- League of Legends - Main tournament - Cash prizing up to $700 + "Best in Calgary" plaque awards!
- League of Legends - TBA - Mini-tournament
- Age of Empires 3 - 8 Player FFA - Mini-tournament
But BloodyIron, what do you mean by Best in Calgary?
In addition to the cash prizes for these events, the first place finalists for the main tournaments will be awarded glorious plaques declaring "Best in Calgary"! Not only do we want to foster competitions that welcome all players, but we also want to reward those who strive for the top. Each plaque will be personalized after each event with the team's name and the name and handle of each player on that team, then returned to the captain of that team.
But BloodyIron, are you going to be playing other games at these LANs?
Of course we are! These are LAN parties after all, gaming is what it's all about! As people sign up for each event we ask them 3 games they will likely want to play at the LAN party. Then that forms a list ("Game Preference" just below the Tournaments) on the event page, updating with each person who signs up. This way you can find others who want to play a particular game! We all play games from every genre, we love gaming, especially discovering new awesome games!
But BloodyIron, I don't know anyone at your events, should I still come?
TOTALLY, you really should! LAN parties are social events, it's about getting people together. They are a perfect place to make friends, maybe join a team, or just find people to game with, it's all good! These are all public events so we welcome gamers of all shapes, sizes and such. We run them for YOU!
But BloodyIron, I have a question not outlined here or on the event pages, what should I do?
Well you can reach me on STEAM ( http://steamcommunity.com/id/BloodyIron/ ), or post on our forums ( http://www.lanified.com/forums/ ).
But BloodyIron, are there other ways to keep up with LANified!?

- LANified! 21: Cancelled
BloodyIron on Mon, June 29th, 2015 @ 6:11 pm.
Dear Fellow Gamers,
It is with much regret that we must inform you that we are cancelling our upcoming LAN party, LANified! 21: Summoner's Stand.
We are cancelling the event due to insufficient interest, despite our best efforts (and yours).
Everyone that has prepaid for this event will be refunded in full. We are planning to have that completed today. If you have any issues with your refund, contact us immediately so we can resolve it. The refund will come through paypal.
We appreciate those that have shown their support for our events. As always we will continue to improve and provide superior events. This is not the last event for us this year.
While unfortunately we will not be providing an event this coming weekend, we are already planning the other events for the rest of this year. Please stay tuned, as we hope to announce them soon. We know that many of you are looking forward to our next events, but please be patient with us while we ensure they are up to our standards for quality.
Additionally, we are still looking for help with a broadcasting project that we are working on. For further details, please head to : http://www.teamfortress.tv/thread/25737 ... oadcasting
Thank you for your understanding and patience, and we hope that you will choose to attend LANified! events in the future.
- LANified! 21: One week away!
BloodyIron on Sat, June 27th, 2015 @ 12:51 am.
Listen, we know we said we would close prepay already, but, you see, we've changed our minds.
We know there are more people that want to come to our LAN party, and we don't want to disappoint them! One of the hard facts we have to deal with is making sure enough people attend our events in order for them to be sustainable; and we don't have enough people prepaid just yet to hit that mark. If we don't have enough people prepaid, we may have to cancel the event.
There are many benefits to prepaying for our events, as we have outlined in the past. The biggest benefit is to the event, as more people will want to come as more people prepay. It is a compounding effect.
Specifically, we are extending prepay a final time (seriously!) for LANified! 21 until Sunday June 28th (end of day).
We know you want to see awesome events, and we want to run them for you! Help us ensure that we make them happen.
But BloodyIron, what can I do to help?
The best way you can help us is spreading the word. We hear all the time, people commenting along the lines of "oh, how come I've never heard of this before?", despite our best efforts to promote our events. Word of mouth is very effective. We understand that there are already plenty of you spreading the word, and we appreciate that greatly. The biggest barrier we face is people simply not knowing about our events and what we do. Help us break down that barrier.
But BloodyIron, what if I haven't figured out a team?
Our forums are a good way to help connect players and teams. We have a thread to help players/teams connect with each other : viewtopic.php?f=21&t=84258
Now that we have that out of the way, do you remember all the sweet stuff that's going on at the coming LAN? Don't forget, in the main tournament teams are battling for the "Best in Calgary" title and plaques! Each player on the 1st place team gets cash and super sweet custom plaques. in addition to the rewards from Riot!
Here's the team captain from team CripStix receiving their LANified! 19 "Best in Calgary" plaques : https://www.facebook.com/11412235861486 ... =1&theater
There are many reasons you should join us at our coming LAN party. It truly is an experience not found elsewhere. For full details and to prepay head to : http://www.lanified.com/events/go/18/3
