Just a quick reminder. Our event is 2 weeks away and prepay closes tonight. We have more people signed up than we can accommodate so if you were planning to come we highly recommend you prepay so we can guarantee you a seat. If you are having issues with prepaying we can make some accommodations if possible. To prepay just head to the event details (at http://www.lanified.com/events/details/6 ) and click on the prepay button then follow the steps. Do keep in mind that anyone coming who has not prepaid will be served in a first-come-first-served basis and we may run out of room. If we run out of room the only people who will be guaranteed a seat will be those who have prepaid.
Hope to see you there!
Good news everyone! Our coming event will be our best one yet!
Within the last day we broke our record for sign-ups! As of this writing we sit at 47 sign-ups, and people just keep on coming. If you want to secure your seat we advise you to do so promptly, as prepay will close this coming Friday at midnight. Prepaying also enables you to pledge to unlock the higher prize pot for the tournament(s) you want to enter! The event is less than three weeks away, we can barely contain ourselves.
As you may know we recently revised our Starcraft 2 tournament. As such we have made some revisions to our Team Fortress 2 tournament. First, we added the maps koth_badlands and koth_lakeside_final to the list of playable maps. Second, we adjusted the points for arena. To win a round you must now reach 5 points, up from 4. To win the whole match your team must earn 8 points, up from 5. So to clarify, if your team were to gain 5 points the first round your team would then swap sides and start the second round, and if your team were to then earn 3 more points your team would win with a total of 8 points. We also have revised the list of banned weapons, the full list is:
- Back Scratcher
- Battalions Backup
- Brass Beast
- Candy Cane
- Mad Milk
- Warrior's Spirit

We are hosting a brand new King of the Hill event featuring Minecraft pvp. The rules and format are not yet finalized, but this is welcome to anyone. The rules will probably fall along the same lines of the Starcraft 2 KotH. Do not worry, we havn't forgotten about our build fest world, but we are re-working the format for it, it's fair to expect it to return in some fashion. We will present how to join this event during the broadcast, or earlier if possible on our site. So keep checking back to our site for updates.

As for our coming LANified! 9: Batter Up event, there are some things we want to cover.
First, in terms of pledging prizing unlocks. As you may know the prizing increases as enough people pledge for particular tournaments (you pledge on the page for the specific event in-case you didn't). However something we can't present nicely just yet is that when these new prize pools unlock they will not just go to the first place contestant, but they will be split between first and second place. To elaborate:
For Starcraft 2 the step up prize pool will be:
1st place: $220
2nd place: $100
For Team Fortress 2 the step up prize pool will be:
1st place: $210
2nd place: $90
Second, our early-bird prepay will be ending midnight Friday night of this week. To clarify it ends 00:01 Saturday May 7th 2011. Currently our prepay is $40, but afterwards the prepay will bump up to $50. We will still be taking prepayments after this point. As such we recommend that you take advantage of the early-bird pricing while it's still available! If you are having difficulties with any step of the way, give us a shout on the forums and we'll work our hardest to help you with whatever problems you may have.
Third, we've been putting up quite a few posters, and are constantly looking for new locations, but we sometimes miss good locations. Do you know of some worthwhile locations? Let us know! Post on our facebook page: http://facebook.lanified.com or on our forums: http://www.lanified.com/forums
There's plenty happening and boy are we excited to bring it all to you. If you know of any other people who would enjoy our events, don't hesitate to spread the word. It really helps us, and helps you have a great time too. To sign up or prepay for our LAN party head to the event details at: http://www.lanified.com/events/details/6
