- LANified! 2015 year-end gaming poll
BloodyIron on Thu, December 17th, 2015 @ 5:01 pm.
2015 is wrapping up pretty soon, and it has been quite a successful year for us!
Many people want to know when our next events will be, and we're working hard to get all that delicious info together for you. We are planning to announce the information soon(tm).
In the mean time, we would like to hear your thoughts on what games you would like to see played as tournaments.
As such, we have started a poll on our forums, and we would love for you to participate in it. Just head to : viewtopic.php?f=21&t=84296
Please choose FOUR games, and if you make a mistake you can change your selection. Also keep in mind that accounts are site-wide, so forum and event registration accounts are the same.
We're super excited about 2016 and what we have brewing, we hope you feel the same!
Stay safe peeps, and keep on gaming! ;P
- LANified! CS:GO Scrims! - Wednesdays and Saturdays
BloodyIron on Thu, December 17th, 2015 @ 4:55 pm.
Starting this week and going forward we are going to be holding regular CS:GO Scrims in-house!
This is open to everyone who likes to play CS:GO, whether you have a team or not. It's pretty easy, and we think you'll have a blast! Just follow these steps and you'll be set:
1) Check the schedule, then get online at the time
2) Jump on our mumble server ( voice.lanified.com default port)
3) Join the "Scrim Forming" channel under "Counter-Strike" on mumble
4) Talk to Xiphos (on mumble or STEAM) to figure out a team ( http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561197995982559/ )
5) Get to know your team, perhaps elect a captain for your team then tell Xiphos
6) Xiphos will then co-ordinate scrims for the evening, which servers to join, etc
7) Have fun! Be sure to keep coming : D
-Wednesdays 6pm start
-Saturdays 6pm start
We will be using our local servers setup with competitive rules in-line with our tournaments.
Also, if you want to join our STEAM group, just head to : http://steamcommunity.com/groups/LANified
- LANified! 24: Rumble in the Rift: Cancelled
BloodyIron on Sun, November 22nd, 2015 @ 7:04 pm.
To be explicitly clear, we have cancelled LANified! 24: Rumble in the Rift.
We saw literally zero (0) prepays for this event. Which is an unprecedented response. In our entire history (almost 9 years) we have never seen such disinterest in an event, especially considering that we had 16 people signed up. If you want to know more, I refer you to our previous news post.
We will instead be spending these efforts on what we will be doing next year.
We have great things coming, and we plan to announce them within the next month.

Alright folks, I think it's time we have a real talk with BloodyIron.
We at LANified! have been running these LAN parties for almost 9 years now. While we've had our successes, we've also had our fair share of failures and flops too.
We're working on incredibly awesome things for next year. But it's not next year just yet.
In under two weeks time we want to put on our next LAN party, and co-ordinate great League of Legends gaming here in Calgary. But there's one problem, one thing we simply can never overcome.
We cannot do it without you.
As of this writing, we literally have zero prepays for this event. We haven't seen such numbers in years, and quite frankly it worries us.
We simply cannot run events without the support you provide. Not just the kind words, the cheering and your company, but the support by prepaying. Putting down your money to say that you want to make this happen, is one of the biggest ways you can support us (apart from telling others about us).
However, historical factors are forcing our hand into a direction we normally avoid. We are drawing the line in the sand. But it isn't all sour grapes.
As of right now, we are extending prepay for LANified! 24: Rumble in the Rift until Wednesday November 18th 2015 (end of day), but there are some caveats. For the first time ever (and likely the last time), we are establishing an explicit minimum number of prepays for an event to happen. We need to have 15 prepays in order for us to go forward with this event. If we do not get enough prepays we will cancel this event; but if we do cancel the event, you will receive 100% of your money refunded (as we have done every single time in the past when we have been forced to cancel).
However, if we do reach the 15 prepays, or higher, we will extend the prepay a second time after Wednesday and the event will happen.
I am sorry about the serious nature of this post, but unfortunately we feel we have exhausted all other options at this point. We believe that there are plenty of people in Alberta that want to play League of Legends together, but we need your support.
If you want to help us grow the League of Legends community in Alberta, help us help you, prepay today : http://www.lanified.com/events/go/21/10

Hey so, you might have been looking at our event and thought to yourself. I'd like to go to that, but prepay is closed.
Well, it's not actually closed, we just had a typo on our pricing info page.
The part where it says prepay closes November 8th, yeah, that's supposed to be November 15th.
Whoops! Sorry about that!
So for all of you who want to get lots of League of Legends action going on, come prepay today and secure your seat!
