Last minute HF LAN news

By K2 on June 30th, 2005 at 3:29 pm EST

Hi all. Figured it’s about that time to do a quick blurb about HF LAN #6 that’s starting in less than 24 hrs from now ;-) I can’t believe we’re full… I even have a couple people on a waiting list in case someone bows out at the last minute. Crazy shit man… I woulda been happy with fifty of ya showing, hah. All in all it should be a great time. I’m gonna hop a plane here in just a few hours but before I head out, I just wanted to put out that last minute reminder about things.

Things to bring – your computer of course, and all the accessories that go with it, like your gaming mouse/keyboard/mouse pad, all the power cables and surge protectors you’re gonna need, a decent length CAT5 network cable (10-20 feet is good), headphones, blank CD’s and a pillow for your ass in case you wind up sitting for a long amount of time. Also, don’t forget to bring a valid ID at the door so we can verify who ya are, and have at least five bucks cash on hand if ya plan on participating in the CSS tournament… and of course cash for drink/food and what not. Myself, I’ll be bringing all of that plus my camera, and I think there will be some video footage as well.

Time table – the party starts at noon on July 1st (duh :-P), and the CSS tourney will kick off at around 9am on the 2nd, this will give most of ya time to show up and get settled in. We’ll probably do a dbl-elimination type of tournament, time permitting. Maps will be decided right before the tourney starts, gonna let all of the teams participating decide on what they wanna play… most likely the map rotation will mirror that of the upcoming CPL tournament. I’ll start kickin’ people out at noon on the 3rd :-)

Other stuff – SaGe^KS has been working on name tags for everyone as well as getting seating arrangements worked out so there wont be any problems with teams sitting with each other. EML and others are showing up early along with myself to get things setup before the lan kicks off so you all can start gaming the minute ya show up and get set up.

Non-LAN stuff – thx to Suck. for getting the BF2 server up and going the day the full version was available, and thx to the benefactor staff for handling issues as they arose on the CSS pub server while I was away, looks like we’re all good to go as of now… my host has been having network issues lately but luckily they are not constant, so hopefully they’ll have things worked out for good here soon.

Alright… that’s all I got for ya gang. I’m gonna finish packing and getting my shit in order before I fly out. See ya at the lan ;-)
