Good news everyone!
LANified! will be bringing back our popular weekly broadcasts with improvements too!
Our schedule will be the following:
Wednesday 7pm - 10pm (MST, GMT -7): Starcraft 2 King of the Hill:
We will be running a King of the Hill event where entrants face off in a 1v1 format, and the winner stays in to face the next challenger. Challengers pick the map for the match. To enter just jump in channel LANified! in game, we use ladder maps and most competitively used maps.
Thursday 7pm - 10pm (MST, GMT -7): Team Fortress 2 KotH^2 3v3:
This is our own home-brewed format of TF2, in which teams of 3 face off on KotH maps in a KotH style, and the winning team stays in to face the next challenging team! Full rules available at: viewtopic.php?f=21&t=203 . To enter jump on irc.gamesurge.net / #LANified!, or go to our http://www.lanified.com/networks page to use our built in IRC client. We will also be upping the ante for stronger teams. Stronger teams can move to a qualified status and during our qualified weeks we will pitch only our qualified teams against each other for fiercer competition! How this will work is for the first 3 weeks of September we will be running Qualifying weeks for our TF2, and the fourth week will be a Qualified week. Each Qualifying week we will move up to 2 of the best performing teams for that week (based on performance) to qualified status. After September we will alternate each week, one week being a Qualifying week the other being a Qualified week. Teams can move out of Qualified status for a variety of reasons, such as under performing, or roster changes, so keep your nose clean! All teams that want to Qualify must register their roster at: viewtopic.php?f=21&t=204
We also will be bringing you a a monthly Heroes of Newerth event! Our HoN Dual Round-Robin event will consist of 12 teams, broken up into 2 groups of 6. Each group of 6 will face off in a round-robin series (5 games) against the other members of the group. The top team of each group will face off in a Best of 3 series at the end of the month which will be broadcasted Live with commentary! Each match will be organized by Galvia, and to register your team head to viewtopic.php?f=21&t=205 . Each team will need to complete 5 games in 3 weeks, so make sure your team is set before you register please. Broadcasting schedule for finals is not yet finalized and will be announced at a later date.
All of these events will be broadcasted live (HoN will only have the finals broadcasted). To watch our broadcasts LIVE head to http://www.lanified.com/networks . We will also be including an IRC client on that page to chat in our IRC channel, and a calendar for our broadcasting schedule and other events!
There is additional news for our coming LAN party too! Once again, S2 games is stepping up to the plate sponsoring our lovely event. As such our prizing for Heroes of Newerth will be 1st $400 + 7500gc/2nd $100 + 3500gc/3rd 1500gc (in game gold coins). We would like to remind you going forward our HoN tournament is 5v5. If you are curious about Heroes of Newerth the game is now Free to Play and you can make a free account at: http://heroesofnewerth.com/ref.php?r=0N2J6RB8 and jump in the game right away!
Also we are still looking for an additional commentator for our broadcasts and events. We need someone local to Calgary Alberta Canada, who can attend our events and come to our production facilities under their own power. You need to be at least 18 years of age (some exceptions may be made), and we give preference to those with competitive experience with any of our tournaments, tf2/sc2/hon, preferably as many of those games as possible.
Finally we would like to remind you that we have another spectacular LAN party event coming up in November, to sign up and prepay please head to: http://www.lanified.com/events/details/7
