BloodyIron on Tue, March 26th, 2013 @ 1:37 am.
This weekend we hosted our most recent event, LANified! 13: The Swarm. A lot of people made it to the event, and we want to say thanks for your support!
Unfortunately, the event had to finish; but don't fret, we are now announcing our next event, LANified! 14: Phoenix Rising!
Tournaments are not yet announced for this event, but they will be soon. Prepay is also not open just yet, but you can sign up at: http://www.lanified.com/events/go/11/9
We had a great time this weekend, and we hope you did too. Unfortunately our forums aren't letting people post right now so when we get that corrected we would love to hear your feedback!
If you know anyone who would really enjoy our events, do us and them a favor and get them to come!

- Waiver and how to get to the event
BloodyIron on Fri, March 22nd, 2013 @ 1:00 am.
We are on the cusp of our event, but there are some important technicalities we must observe. Those who are attending our event, be it for the BYOC part of the console tournaments, must sign our waiver. If you are under 18 years of age your waiver must be signed by your legal guardian/parent. A parent can sign it in advance of the event, however the best scenario is having the parent sign the waiver at check-in of the event. You can find the waiver here. We can print you off a copy at the event, however we will not admit anyone if they do not have a properly signed waiver, this includes guests. Oh, as a reminder, guests are welcome to come hang out at the event!
Also, if you find that you're not sure how to get to our event, you can go to the location page for this event (here), find the address for the location, and get directions to the event from your point of origin.
If this is your first time attending our event, we highly recommend you review the "What to bring" and "What not to bring" list on the event details page (here).
- Prepayment close, come join anyways
BloodyIron on Sun, March 17th, 2013 @ 7:55 pm.
Prepayment is closed now, but that doesn't mean you can't come! If you still want to attend our coming event, you can still sign up for event by heading to the event page: http://www.lanified.com/events/go/10/9
Alternatively if you just want to show up and poke your head in that's welcome too.
If you plan to come for the smash brothers tournaments you don't have to sign up, however we ask that you do if possible. We also want to remind you to bring a controller if you plan to enter any of the console tournaments. Full details of what to expect for the coming event are outlined at the event page: http://www.lanified.com/events/go/10/9
- Prepay closing soon, running out of seats!
BloodyIron on Mon, March 11th, 2013 @ 2:39 am.
Our coming event is closing fast. It's less than two weeks away! As such, we will be closing prepay in a week, Saturday March 16th. We have 43 people signed up, that's 85% of our capacity! The only way to guarantee yourself a seat, and save some money, is to prepay. Prepaying has many benefits, but most importantly it lets others know that you're coming, and they will want to come too. If you're planning to come we highly recommend you prepay while you still can! We don't oversell events, so to ensure your seat you will need to prepay.
Attending LAN parties isn't always just about gaming. Many people come for the social aspect, and the file sharing. You get to meet all kinds of people who enjoy games just like you, you may even discover games you've never heard of. Not only that but if you have an issue with your computer there will be plenty of people to help you out! The majority of LANified! staff work with computers professionally and have many years of experience; a great resource when you have problems of any kind. If you want some help, just ask us or anyone at the event! Even still, you get to meet all kinds of people in various industries, including IT or technology industries; it's a great place to socially network!
It's also worth reminding those interested in our event that outside of the console tournament schedule the console systems will be available for open play, to everyone! If you want to jump on and play some smash brothers between other stuff, just do it! We will have three stations setup for the tournament and open play. If you plan to play on the stations please bring your own controller, this helps avoid several complications, but we will be providing everything else!
At each console station there will be a display, a set of speakers, the gamecube system setup conveniently, and 2x 3.5mm (headphone plug) connections for anyone to use headphones with! In a tournament this can be important if you want to listen for audible queues. The speakers and headphone plugs will both be setup.
We have a fantastic event lined up, but it doesn't happen if people don't show up! If you love gaming, want to meet lots of others who do too, enter tournaments, or jump into any other thing going on, then just make sure you attend! If you also know people who would be interested in our events, do us all (especially them) a favor and get them in on it!
