- One month away, and boy is there a lot going on!
BloodyIron on Tue, August 17th, 2010 @ 2:13 am.
So our next event is only one month away! We're continuing our work to bring you the best damn LAN party around. As such we have some things to announce and post about.
First, let's recap on our last event.
Our last event was a great success. We had 23 people show up; and while we had a few hiccups (the TF2 tournament was 1hr late) all things went really well otherwise. Our concession was very well received and we plan on bringing that back to our coming event. The network and power was fantastic. Furthermore we had some pretty fun tournaments. As such, we have the brackets for each tournament and the rosters for each team.
TF2 3v3 Arena/KOTH Tournament Results (Click here for brackets)

2nd: Graphy Ass

3rd: Team Pro

Runner Up: Jungle Fever
Second, we want to welcome S2 Games back to our coming event!
S2 Games will be sponsoring the Heroes of Newerth tournament once again, and as such we have a much larger prize pot once again. Thanks for helping us out again S2!
Third, we want to update you on the maps that will be used in the 1v1 Starcraft 2 tournament.
The maps that will be allowed are as follows:
- Blistering Sands
- Desert Oasis
- Scrap Station
- Steppes of War
- Xel'Naga Caverns
- Kulas Ravine
- Lost Temple
- Delta Quadrant
As you might be able to tell, these are the same maps as the 1v1 ladder on Battle.net. We will be adjusting the list to match the ones used on Battle.net.
Fourth, we want to update you on the new prizing for the tournaments.
Team Fortress 2:
15 Pledges - $120 for 1st place
30 Pledges - $300 for 1st place
Heroes of Newerth:
$300 for 1st place. This prize pot does not stagger this event.
15 Pledges - $80 for 1st place
30 Pledges - $170 for 1st place
We want to remind our attendees of a few things. First is that if the pledge threshold for a tournament is not met then the tournament will be held as a "for fun" tournament, in that there will be no prizing. Second is that ONLY prepaid status attendees can pledge for a tournament. Third is that pledging does not cost anything beyond being prepaid. Fourth is that prepaying guarantees you a seat unless we have reached capacity before you prepay. Fifth is that prepayment is still cheaper than paying at the door.
We really appreciate those who attend, and hope to see you there at our coming event! If you have any questions, concerns or whatever, please post on our forums.
For those who want to you can also follow us on facebook.lanified.com.
- Prepay hiccup
BloodyIron on Tue, August 3rd, 2010 @ 10:55 pm.
We are having a bit of an issue with the prepay system. As of this writing we are receiving prepays but the website is not reflecting this. We should have this rectified within the next few days. If you suspect you are experiencing problems please contact us immediately.
It's best to post on the forums.
Currently known users with issues:
Don't forget to pledge for tournaments you want to enter when you are prepaid!

As you might notice the next event is more than a few months away. Despite this we are still working on things to make sure everything goes along properly.
As always we are looking to expand the site. Some of the next features we're going to work on are expanding the Prepay features, adding a proper media section, redesigning key information in the event details, expanding our game section and so much more.
For those who have not yet realized, we're on Facebook! If you want to find it, just head to facebook.lanified.com. We want to use Facebook as a way to help spread the word of our events as well as enable additional ways to commuicate with those who enjoy our great events.
Oh and for those who might have missed it, registration and prepay for our next event is open! Just click on the banner above to find out more.
Another heads up, don't forget that Starcraft 2 comes out July 27th! Several of us here have already played and quite enjoyed the beta. I for one am very eager to get my grubby paws on the retail copy. I have my prepaid receipt in hand!
Well hope to see you there!

So we corrected the date/time issue we were seeing on our site, and it should be proper now. If you are still seeing some issues then first check your time zone is set properly in your forum profile and if it continues please let us know with a post on the forum.

Well for those who may not realize it, we have another event coming up: LANified! 7: Down Right Fierce. To check the details just click the banner above, or go to the events section. Our coming event is a lot like our March event, but our first change is the addition of Starcraft 2 to the tournament list. We have other things that we're working on, but they are not yet finalized and as such we would rather they be polished before we say we're going forward with them. If you have any questions about the upcoming event feel free to post on our forums or comment on this news post.
Just to clarify some things:
LANified! will not enforce any dress code unless you do not have something equivalent to pants/skirt and a shirt minimum. Clearly the mere suggestion of forethought of attire is too hot of a topic to openly discuss.
If you have any issues with the behavior of another person at our events it is best that you speak with me (BloodyIron) immediately.
As for sportsmanship within competition, we will execute judgements if teams/players are found to be overly disruptive or poor sports.
