well, the LAN has been and gone. What an experience it was.
The total turnout was around the 35-40 mark with half the
people rocking up early, to our suprise.
the start everything seemed to be running ok, the dedicated
servers about ready to go and everyone seated down. Suddenly
the power went off, screams of "AHH FUCK!" and other
stuff being yelled everywhere as one guy was burning a CD
when it went off :) Anywayz the hall we chose was a peice
of crap, not enuf power was the major problem of the day causing
all the troubles. After about 1 hr of re-laying power cables,
we finnaly got it all back together and running by 11:30.
After that everyone just jumped into duels and started up
listen servers, defeating the need for any tourneys.
while later we went out and hired some extra long power leads
and ran them from the hall next door for extra power :) For
lunch we had fish and chips, which went quickly and everyone
was back playing games again.
on the projector was the footy, but due to bad reception wasnt
viewable ;) After that Aliens Ressurection, Predator and American
Werewolf in Paris were watched instead.
most popular game was counterstrike, with up to 30 people
in the game at one time, a bit of UT was played and Q3 played
a lot too.
tea we ordered a damn huge pizza run, with some to spare.
the day was sucessful because once the power settled down
we got on playing games and having fun. For the next LAN power
will be rethought out a LOT better by scrapping that hall
andgoing for a bigger, beastier one.
to everyone who rocked up and kept themselves busy while the
power was being sorted out... Cyaz at the next one after a
new venue has been organised and we have a few extra helpers
instead of it just being put on 3 ppls shoulders.
