Heroes of Newerth: Beta keys for prepaid

We have a great announcement for participants today! I was recently provided enough Heroes of Newerth keys to supply every prepaid person up to our 40 person capacity with a key. Even if you have a key already we will provide you with a key (but limit 1 per person from us). If you are likely to attend our event we recommend you prepay. It costs less, gets you a key right away, enables you to pledge for tournaments (which increases prize pots), and helps us determine how many are sure to show up. We are currently working on the best way to distribute these keys, but if you simply cannot wait, just contact me directly through the forums and I'll message you the key (should you be prepaid of course). This is a perfect opportunity to not only try this fantastic game out, but it also offers practice to those who are trying to get ready for our coming tournament.

For those who are unfamiliar with Heroes of Newerth, check out our fabulous outline of it at: http://www.lanified.com/games/details/11


Battlefield Bad Company 2, Starcraft II Beta and Posters

Okay, so it's not exactly NEWS but it's pretty fortunate that the next Battlefield, Bad Company 2, is being released shortly before the LAN. It's release date is March 2nd 2010.

I myself have already prepaid, and can't wait to get fraggin all you baddies. For those who have missed it, there are tonnes of videos out there illustrating how the game plays. As with the first Bad Company, they have a proper single player experience, as well as what seems to be a properly developed multiplayer too. For those who may be concerned on the PC quality based on the COD: MW2 results, fret not. The developers have said they have two teams, one for Console development and one for PC development.

The beta for PC (at least on STEAM) starts January 28th 2010 (tomorrow). Prepaid players for the game gain entrance to the beta. I suspect working Friday is going to be a big pain.

Here are some videos showcasing the game:

Next, it looks like Blizzard is getting serious. As sourced by Tom's Hardware and a few other sites, Blizzard has opened the support page for Starcraft II. It is publicly available, and the listing of Starcraft II on the battle.net page is no longer greyed out. Furthermore various fan sites have been contacted requesting 5 users' information be provided, suggesting the distribution of keys soon following. For further details, check the source.

LANified! welcomes S2 games as a sponsor

I'm very happy to announce a new partnership between LANified! and S2 games. S2 games will be sponsoring the upcoming March "The Second Decade" LAN party. As such we would like to cover the changes to the prizes for Heroes of Newerth.

For the coming March event both tournaments will have cash prizes. Furthermore the prize pots stagger as more people pledge for those tournaments. With our new sponsorship with S2 we will be increasing the budget for the Heroes of Newerth cash pots. They will reflect as follows:

1-14 Pledges: $50 1st place
15-29 Pledges: $250 1st place
30+ Pledges: $500 1st place

Please join me in welcoming S2's support.

RESCHEDULED: LANified!: The Second Decade. March 6th and 7th

Dear Lanners,

It is with much regret that we have to bring you such sorrow news. Due to a lack of visible interest we have been forced to reschedule the coming December LAN party (2009). As such we have changed the dates to March 6th and 7th 2010. We will be providing refunds immediately for all who have prepaid, and we greatly appologize for any and all inconvenienes this has and will cause any who were planning to attend. We greatly hope that you consider attending our future events, such as the coming March event.

In the December event's stead I offer an open invite to anyone who is interested in attending a personal LAN party at my apartment. I will give preference to those who have prepaid for the December LAN. Space is limited to 13 guests. Please contact BloodyIron for details.

Registration and prepay is now open for the March event, details and such can be found at: http://www.lanified.com/events/details/3
