- Best Poster
BloodyIron on Sat, February 21st, 2015 @ 4:28 am.
What kind of an awesome set of events would be complete without an awesome poster to promote them? We're not sure, but we have an awesome poster for our upcoming events! Check it out : Poster
But BloodyIron, what should I do with this totally radical poster?
Print it! If you like the design, why not print to keep? Or share it with your friends and animals? Fun for the whole family! (while supplies last, poster is not food)
It's designed to be printed on Legal size paper (8.5"x14") not Letter size (8.5"x11"), so it will shrink a bit on Letter.
Also, prepay for LANified! 19: Running with Knives ends this Sunday! So be sure to secure your seat!
Oh and those QR codes, yeah, they work.
- Triple action!

Hello fellow gamers! With 2015 comes a new year, and with our new year we are bringing you even more awesome gaming! Not only are we announcing our next event today, but we are announcing our next THREE events today. All of which you can secure your seat for right NOW!
But BloodyIron, are you mad?
Mad about gaming, yeah! Sure, it may be a lot of gaming, but we see so many gamers in Calgary, we want you all to come join us and have a blast! Besides, each of the three events has a different set of tournaments, what a selection!
Ladies and Gentlemen, LANified! is proud to present our Best in Calgary series:
LANified! 19: Running with Knives (clicky)
- Counter-Strike: Global Offensive main tournament and mini-tournaments (cash prizing up to $700! + "Best in Calgary" award!)
LANified! 20: Jungle Jukes (clicky)
- DotA 2 main tournament and mini-tournaments (cash prizing up to $700! + "Best in Calgary" award!)
LANified! 21: Summoner's Stand (clicky)
- League of Legends main tournament and mini-tournaments (cash prizing up to $700! + "Best in Calgary" award!)
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 a glorious plaque 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, with all those games, are you going to be playing other games?
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!
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/ ).
- Two new members to the party
BloodyIron on Wed, January 21st, 2015 @ 12:46 am.
Zoinks caped crusaders, we're still alive!
Not only that, but today we have two new members of our organization! "Zakizdaman" and "Ishamael" will be joining our staff contingency as Tournament Administrators for future events. Our good man Bio is moving onto other parts of our organization, and we want to make sure our events keep running smoothly. You will be seeing these awesome gentlemen at our coming events and they're excited to make sure they are a memorable experience.
Please join us in welcoming them!
As for the events in this year, we will have more announcements soon enough, so keep your ears to the ground!

- Our new Counter-Strike: Global Offensive local server
BloodyIron on Mon, November 3rd, 2014 @ 1:53 am.
In response to our recent interest in CSGO, at our last LAN, we have spun up a new CSGO server that is configured with competitive settings. Due to how VALVe handles matchmaking it is not in the matchmaking queue, but it is available for your use, and others' too! But why bother? There's lots of other servers out there, right?
Not necessarily. We have the configurations setup to reflect what's important to competitive players namely:
- friendly fire on
- max 10 players
- bomb timer of 35s
- alltalk off
- many other settings used in competitive matches
You, your team, your friends, whoever, are welcome to use it as you see fit. We are hoping that it will be used to help grow the local competitive scene, but it's a public service, use it as you see fit.
The address is: csgo1.lanified.com:27020
We will be working to improve it over time, so if you want to see any changes, do let us know!
