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.
Dear Fellow Gamers,
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
This just in, we're extending prepay!
But not only that, we have Riot support!
Effective immediately, we are going to be extending prepay until end of day Thursday June 25th 2015 for our coming event, LANified! 21: Summoner's Stand.
Our upcoming event will feature the main tournament of League of Legends, with fabulous prizing, but now Riot is throwing their support into the pool too! Riot will be adding the following to the pool:
- 1st place - 3200 RP/each player, Triumphant Ryze/each player, 4-Win IP Boost/each player
- 2nd place - 2400 RP/each player, 4-Win IP Boost/each player
- 3rd place - 1600 RP/each player, 4-Win IP Boost/each player
- 4th place - 800 RP/each player, 4-Win IP Boost/each player
- 5th-8th place - 4-Win IP Boost/each player
All this great support from Riot is in addition to our cash prizing, and "Best in Calgary" custom plaques!
Prepaying for your seat at our LANs have great benefits. Firstly, you spend less. Secondly, you guarantee yourself a seat. Thirdly, we enter you into a prepay-only raffle for an awesome TRENDnet router ( model : TEW-812DRU ). Fourthly, if we get 30 prepays for this event we increase the cash prize pool for the main tournament to a whopping $700! How awesome is that?
Do you enjoy gaming? Do you want to game with other people? Well what are you waiting for? Head to http://www.lanified.com/events/go/18/3 and prepay today!
Our next LAN party, LANified! 21: Summoner's Stand, is not too far away! Do you have your team figured out? If you haven't, we have a super sweet thread to help you get that handled : viewtopic.php?f=21&t=84258
If you're an individual, or a partial team, that thread's for you, check it out!
Well that time has come; LANified! 20: Jungle Jukes is over!
Team "4 weabs+angela" won the DotA 2 tournament, taking home 5x single day passes to The Node, $200 cash, the title of "Best in Calgary", and plaques solidifying their title.
Team "Closed Forever" placed 2nd, and while they fought valiantly, they walk away with 5x single day passes to The Node, better luck next time!
