Well, we sure bumped our prepays up a fair bit. I also know of multiple
people who were unable to prepay but are going to pay at the door. As such
we are going forward with this event! Also, prepayment is extended until
this coming Friday the 14th at midnight! If you can prepay, we ask that you
do so we can plan better around how many to expect. Plus, it's cheaper ;D
As a few reminders, we will be having our on-site hot food concession
again, so tasty. Serving meals, snacks and drinks!
You can also follow our updates more closely on facebook.lanified.com.
For those who havn't seen it yet, we now have a flash games section of the
forum, so come on down and set some high scores!
Last, but definately not least, we will be broadcasting our tournaments and
event! This means we will be having commentators for our tournaments, and
streaming it live both to our attendees and the internet world wide! Even
if you're not sure about victory, we encourage you to enter our
tournaments, and kick some ass!
As our event nears we have many things to announce, changes we have been working on and new services and features we will be offering. We hope you enjoy what we have to say.
LANified! is proud to announce a brand new service never before offered by us, and offered by few other events world-wide. The new service will be under the flag of LANified! NETworks and will consist of online broadcasting of various competitions and tournaments LANified! hosts. For our coming LANparty we will be broadcasting all of our tournaments as well as some other small things during the event. At this event we will be having on-site commentators for matches throughout the tournaments, as well as presenting the tournaments on a big screen for those who make it to the event.
Properly ran tournaments are key to our events and this new service is ran with the interest of making it exciting to the spectator. We are very excited to present this to the public and are looking forward to our coming event greatly. Come time of the event we will be providing information as to how to watch the broadcast and hope that you tune in. The broadcast will be available world-wide and we encourage interested spectators to pass the information about the broadcast to others they think would be interested.
We hope you are as excited about this new service as we are and we look forward to helping the competitive community expand even further in new and interesting ways.
We have recently reviewed the budget for the coming event and as such we will be making the following changes to tournament prizing.
TF2 : Guaranteed Minimum Prize : $120 for 1st place, 30 pledges: $300 for 1st place
SC2 : Guaranteed Minimum Prize : $100 for 1st place, 30 pledges: $300 for 1st place
HoN : Still Guaranteed $480 for 1st place
Tournament Scheduling and Ruleset Adjustments
The first notable adjustment to the Starcraft 2 tournament is that from Semi Finals on will be Bo3 (Best of 3 rounds). To clarify, both the upper and lower bracket semi final matches will be Bo3 and the Finals will also be Bo3. However the earlier stages of the tournament will remain Bo1.
The only change to the maplist is that Shakuras Plateau has been removed.
Team Fortress 2
We reviewed arena_offblast_final and have since decided to add it to the maplist. No maps were removed.
Banned Unlocks: The Sandman, Wrangler, Natasha. Any unlocks past the Australian Christmas Update (December 17, 2010) will be banned also. Update details can be found at: http://wiki.teamfortress.com/wiki/Patches
Heroes of Newerth
We have been reviewing the recent changes and aditions to the game, and one of the possible changes we were evaluating is the shift to Grimm's Crossing. After thorough testing we have concluded this map is unfit for current competition as it plays to less variety in strategy than the traditional map. As such Forests of Caldavar will be used. The rules will remain unchanged and Banning Pick will continue to be used. No heroes will be banned except any heroes released near the time of the event.
Event Tournament Schedule
The schedule is pretty much the same as the last event as it worked quite well. To clarify starting times will be:
2pm (1400hrs) Day 1, Saturday January 22nd 2011
Heroes of Newerth:
If 6 or less teams are signed up:
9pm (2100hrs) Day1, Saturday January 22nd 2011 - Whenever it finishes
If 7 or more teams are signed up:
Stage1 : 9pm (2100hrs) Day1, Saturday January 22nd 2011 - 2am (0200hrs) Day2, Sunday January 23rd 2011

Team Fortress 2 Practice Servers and Casual Gaming Challenges
As an added service to our attendees we will be providing two servers soon which will be configured to reflect the coming Team Fortress 2 tournament. These servers are offered as a service to practice on for the coming tournament and we hope you enjoy our hard work on maintaining them. If you have issues with them please contact us immediately and we will gladly assist you with ensuring their working order. Server details will be released soon, once they have completed configuration.
Also at the coming event there will certainly be time between tournaments, it happens. As such we are going to be offering some more casual options. These options will take the form of Casual Gaming Challenges. Details are still in the works, but we aim to make these challenges accessible to everyone who attends. We will likely be broadcasting at least some of the Challenges too. While tournaments are very important to us, we want to also stimulate casual gaming.
We would like to remind our attendees that we can be followed on facebook: http://facebook.lanified.com . Furthermore we provide a public Mumble server: voice.lanified.com and will be running one on-site at the event. If you have any questions, concerns or other feedback we would love to hear from you through our various channels including facebook and our forums.
