    LAN Packing List, Instructions, & Schedule

    Please read through carefully, especially if this is your first LAN.

    We will be collecting LAN fees (SEE HERE) AND Thursday night meal costs ON ARRIVAL. Please bring cash for this (there is an ATM down the road that you'll have to nip to if not). The curry will cost £13 this year, and the Diner cost depends on what you have ordered (but should be under £20, so bring that if you can't remember and I'll give you your change).



    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, ideally 3m+ in case you are far from the switch.
    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

    Not all of these games are GUARANTEED to be played (apart from the tournaments), so don't rush out and buy a copy unless you're sure you actually want the game.

    Overwatch
    PUBG
    Team Fortress 2 (FREE)
    Left 4 Dead 2
    Unreal Tournament (FREE)
    Counter Strike: Global Offensive

    Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is ESSENTIAL if you're playing in the Deadathlon!!! Hopefully you all have this by now, as it was recently on sale for £2.50. There MAY still be a copy or two floating around if you ask real nice in the Deadathlon thread, but if they're gone, they're gone.


    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/Epic Launcher/ Blizzard Launcher 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.
