But wait, there's more!
Not only are we increasing how many matches of each mini-tournament there are, we're also adding a new mini-tournament! We're also adjusting the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Arms Race FFA mini-tournament from 8 Player to 10 Player.
For our Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm 8-Player FFA and Conter-Strike: Global Offensive 10-Player Arms Race FFA mini tournaments, we will be adding two more matches for each, so 6 total (3 each). Each match with it's own prize! The prize for each of these mini-tournament's first match will be a TrendNET TEW-680MB Media Bridge, but the rest is a surprise!
We're not done yet! In addition to these matches we will be having a Team Fortress 2 Rocket Jumping mini-tournament! For this mini-tournament the first person to pass each phase of the mini-tournament wins a prize! There will be 4 phases, each harder than the previous. Just like the other mini-tournaments we will not announce the map in advance, so get your rockets reloading and your feed exploding!
We're working really hard to make this event a fantastic event. We know you'll have a great time. So come join us! To check out the full event details and signup/prepay head to: http://www.lanified.com/events/details/10

Good news everyone! We have some new developments for our coming event:
First, we are proud to announce the details for our Starcraft 2 tournament! It will be a 2v2 Double Elimination tournament where players use the Heart of the Swarm version. Matches will be bo1 (Best of 1) until semi-finals. Semi-finals will have bo3 matches, and finals will have bo5 matches. The map list will not be announced until nearer to the event, as the game has not yet been released. For full rule details, head to: http://www.lanified.com/tournaments/details/32
Second, we also will be hosting mini-tournaments! We will be hosting a Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm 8-player Free-For-Fall (FFA) mini-tournament, as well as a Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) 8-player FFA Arms Race mini-tournament. What are the prizes for each of these mini-tournaments? The winner from each tournament will walk away with a delicious TredNET Wireless Media bridge! It features delicious 802.11N speeds up to 450mbps wireless, 4 gigabit ports and other awesome features. Check them out: http://www.trendnet.com/products/prodde ... MB&cat=157
Third, even though we only announced or event a week ago, we already have 19 people signed up! That's 38% of our capacity! At this rate, we could easily run out of seats soon.

It is with much regret that we must announce that LANified! 12: Trinity has been cancelled.
We had insufficient prepays in order for this particular event to be even close to sustainable.
Do I get my money back?
All accounts that prepaid should see a full refund by the time you read this message. If you are having difficulties, please contact us at (bloodyiron at shaw dot ca) to resolve issues.
When is your next event?
We are currently aiming for March for our next one.
We are very sorry that we had to do this, however it's important to remember that paying for these events has to come from somewhere. We will be working harder next time to make our event more appealing. We plan to announce our next event in the near future. We hope you can forgive us, but this is the most notice we could have provided you with.
Once again, if you have further questions, contact BloodyIron directly or at (bloodyiron at shaw dot ca). LANified! still provides our public servers, including mumble, minecraft, tf2, and we work hard to bring you quality events and services.
The cool cats at TrendNET are showing us some more love with our coming event. They're helping us out with a delicious WiFi bridge with a built in 4 port gigabit switch and sweet wireless speeds too, specifically a TEW-680MB ( http://www.trendnet.com/products/prodde ... MB&cat=157 ). If you want to keep up with what TrendNET is developing or get in touch with them, head to http://www.facebook.com/trendnet .
But what are we going to do with this scrumptious bit of tech? Well, some of our longer term attendees may remember things we've done in the past. One of those has been our flash high score challenges. So LANified! puts forth the following challenge: You must play the linked game, and not only beat the current high score of 155,604 (previously set by Dolphin), but have the highest score by Noon Oct 13 2012. To collect the prize you must be at the event. To submit a legitimate score you must take a screenshot of your score (please crop it to size) and post it in the thread for the flash game with your account.
So what game are we talking about? Just head to: viewtopic.php?f=27&t=111
But wait, there's more! However, you will have to just wait. We are going to be talking about more things going on with us tonight. So keep your eyes peeled, and in the mean time get cracking on those scores!
