- LANified! returns to Calgary Expo 2017!
BloodyIron on Thu, March 23rd, 2017 @ 1:48 am.
For the last handful of months we have been quietly working on bringing you great things, today we can talk about one of them. LANified! is proud to announce that we will be returning to the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo 2017!
Last year we saw an incredible level of interest, we had so many people participating, it was awesome! This year we will be taking a lot of great stuff from last year, and also bringing you some super special new stuff too.
Did you participate last year? If so, we would love to hear your thoughts! Just drop us a line on twitter (@LANified) : https://twitter.com/lanified
We will be running tournaments Friday, Saturday and Sunday. More details will be coming soon. In the mean time we recommend that you reach out to your friends and assemble your teams, we have a sneaking feeling that you may need to figure out your roster this year in advance ;^)
- Forum spam, yuck!
BloodyIron on Tue, February 21st, 2017 @ 7:17 pm.
So, our website is under daily attack from spammers worldwide. In response to this we are taking action. While we work on changing how our forums work on our site, we are disabling general ability to post to them. I know not many people will be affected by this, but we want people to still be able to reach us, hence this news post.
If you need to get in contact with us, you can reach us through other ways, and we're hoping in the future we can come back with a better implementation of a forum or something like that. Here's other ways you can reach us:
- STEAM Group : http://steamcommunity.com/groups/LANified
- STEAM BloodyIron : http://steamcommunity.com/id/BloodyIron/
- Twitter : https://twitter.com/LANified
Sorry for the inconvenience, the spam has just been such a big waste of our time we needed to take further action.
- LANified! Seeking Help!
BloodyIron on Sat, February 18th, 2017 @ 11:26 pm.
We're looking to get some help with developing our website, and possibly future tools for our events.
To be clear, this is a volunteer position. We understand this isn't for everyone, and that's fine. But if you're interested in contributing, working with us can grant some great experience, and help develop the future of gaming in our part of the world.
You wouldn't be alone, we already have staff contributing to such work, but we are working to increase the number of contributors so that we can roll out awesome stuff faster, without overloading people.
Are you possibly interested? We're looking for 1 to 2 individuals who are familiar with the LAMP stack. Linux, Apache/Nginx, MySQL, PHP. Also, we're hoping to get help with both the front-end and back-end development.
If you're interested, don't be intimidated, apply today! If you have a resume, send that to us. If not, just tell us what experience you do have, what things you've worked on/with, and just do your best to "sell" yourself on how you can help us. Competitive experience is nice too, so if you have any of that, do let us know! (even if it's not-gaming related). Also, if you have any programming experience, whatever the language, please include that too. Again, there's plenty of room for learning here, and we recognise that there are transferable skills too!
To apply, please email bloodyiron _at lanified dot_ com
- LANified! 25: Cancelled
BloodyIron on Wed, October 26th, 2016 @ 2:10 am.
LANified! 25: Colossal has been cancelled.
While we had quite a few people signed up, we had barely anybody prepay tickets. Naturally, the sound business decision is to cancel the event, we can't pay for a LAN without enough prepays.
We are not dead, we will be bringing more gaming events next year, but they will be different.
We want to thank all of those who have stood behind us, and we hope that you continue with us into 2017 and what gaming stuff we get up to then. Also, we would like to hear what you would like to see from us in 2017, just post in this thread : viewtopic.php?f=21&t=84786
Until then, if you want to connect with other gamers, check out our STEAM group : http://steamcommunity.com/groups/LANified
Oh, and be sure to check out our awesome sponsor AntLion Audio, who make wicked ModMics
- One-day price drop. Get it while it lasts!
BloodyIron on Sun, October 23rd, 2016 @ 5:55 pm.
Our coming LAN party is just one month away, and we have a lot of people signed up for it, but not many have bought their tickets yet.
To be specific, we have 129 people signed up, and only 13 tickets prepaid.
We need to be able to pay for the event, and in order to be able to do that we need you to buy your tickets. As such, for TODAY ONLY (Sun Oct 23 2016), as of RIGHT NOW, until 11pm (MDT), we are dropping the prepay ticket price from $110 to $90! That's lower than the early-bird pricing.
We will NOT be offering this price drop again, so get it while it's hot! To prepay your ticket, click here, then login, make sure you're signed up, and hit the prepay button.
Check out some additional stats (as of this writing) for this LAN:
- 90 gamers want to play Counter-Strike
- 29 gamers want to play Rocket League
- 20 gamers want to play League of Legends
- 19 gamers want to play Hearthstone
- 18 gamers want to play Starcraft
- 15 gamers want to play DotA
Wow! That's a lot of CS gamers! But wait, what's that? League of Legends is well above DotA? How can this be?
Last year we had way more DotA gamers coming to our events, so what gives? Maybe you can help us solve this riddle. Tell us? Spread the word? We need more DotA gamers! Help us get the word out, sharing is caring!
We hear time and time again how people want us to run events like this, we see it in our STEAM group size (which is 724 members currently), and with 129 people already signed up, we know it needs to be done. But we can't pay for the event if you don't prepay your ticket. So make it hap'n cap'n, prepay your ticket today, and let's make the future of gaming events a reality!
