  • LAN Packing List & Instructions

    Checklist

    1. Sign up for your Thursday night grub HERE.
    2. Sign up for your Friday night grub HERE.
    3. If you fancy any large Dominos for a tenner on Saturday night, click HERE.
    4. Read through the HARDWARE and GAMES LIST below.
    5. Travel safe and get to the LAN! Your seat will have your gaming name on it. Get yourself set up (for the early Thursday arrivals please wait until we have given you the OK to go into the room).
    6. Game and buy Chaos all of the beers.


    Hardware

    PC and Monitor - 1 only. Don't forget your power cables!
    Keyboard, Mouse, Mousepad.
    Joystick, Xbox Controller, etc.
    Headphones - no speakers!
    Duct tape - to tape your cables down!
    Ethernet Cable - Cat6
    Extension cord, preferably a 4-way () and surge protected.
    Money - how else will you buy us beer?

    There is a bar 10 yards from the LAN room, and a highstreet (with a fine Kebab establishment) 20 yards away.


    The hotel gives us a heavily discounted rate on our rooms, and gives us the LAN room for FREE. Please respect the arrangement we have had with them for many years and the relationship we have built. Do not bring in alcohol from outside. There is a bar for that. Snacks and the odd salted seahorse latte from Costa are generally ok, but please bring such things in discretely (i.e. through the door leading directly to the LAN room, not via the public bar), and don't take the proverbial.


    Games List

    Bad Company 2 for Thursday night (and if we fancy it, throughout the event!
    Team Fortress 2
    Unreal Tournament. We will be having a bash of this Friday night. It is FREE, give it a go!
    Counter Strike: Global Offensive for the Saturday tournaments.
    Overwatch for the Saturday tournaments.

    As most of you will know although these are the games we are running (sort of) structured events for, many others will be played at the LAN. Bring along whatever you fancy!

    It is a good idea to run Steam the night before the LAN to make sure you are up to date. There should be working internet at the event, but it is better not to have to rely on it for your 30gb update Friday morning.

    Full itinerary can be found HERE.

    See you soon!

      Bump! Have a flick through here boys and girls, if you turn up without your power cable you'll look a right muppet. More than usual, for some.

      Have you upgraded to self driving car? Would be a nightmare to pack everything up and forget to bring yourself! A real risk of the future.
