View Full Version : Lanarchy 18 - September 25th - Watford

31-07-04, 08:36 PM
Our next LAN will be held on Saturday 25th September, at our usual venue in Watford, St. Marks church hall.


The address of our venue is -St Marks
Leggatts Way
WD24 5NQAll the usual will be going on, CS1.6, CoD, UT2004, AoM and maybe a bit of eRacer. Other games are welcome, if enough people have them, we'll gladly get a game going.

Everything will kick off at 10am and we'll go right though, stopping only for some pizza, until 10pm. There is free parking right outside, and with it being only 3 or 4 minutes from both the M25 and M1, it's a nice easy venue to get to.


The cost is

Okay, two payments received now (thanks Gamith & IXL).

Anyone else wanting to make a small saving and send me the money now, just let me know and I'll tell you how :)

05-09-04, 12:32 PM

i would not want to miss a lan 4 anything, the ting is just... I only ave a laptop, 2.8GHz p4, 512Mb DDR ram, and a 128Mb ati radeon IGP 345m graphics card, would this do???

if it does i'll b there :twisted: [/i][/b]

05-09-04, 12:41 PM
hi all poeples,

i would not miss lan 4 anything, but the prob is...

i only ave a laptop,
2.8GHz P4
512Mb Ram
128Mb ATI Radeon IGP 345m

will this do?

if it does i'm there!!!

05-09-04, 04:40 PM
If it can play games then yeah bring it along - we tend to go for UT2004, eRacer, AoM and of course CounterStrike (have I missed anything?).
The spec looks fine, though I don't know how the ATI IGP chipset performs.

I guess you might like to bring along a spare keyboard and mouse and use them instead of the laptops own.


05-09-04, 05:06 PM
Do you have UT2004? If so, thats the most system intensive game we'll be playing. I think you should be alright, definitly for CS and CoD.

Why not run Aquamark 3 (http://www.aquamark3.com/) on it and compare to the other machines (http://www.lanarchy.co.uk/viewtopic.php?t=1553) that will be going.

McB - I've passed your joystick onto IXL to deliver for me (nice chap :)), since i can't make it to L18 :( - how do you wanna sort payment?

05-09-04, 10:27 PM
Do you have a paypal account? Maybe catch me on MSN tomorrow morning and we can sort it all out? How much was it again? :side:

06-09-04, 01:28 PM
Ill be sending my

06-09-04, 07:25 PM
can you put my name on the list please? I've sent an email about payment :)

06-09-04, 09:58 PM
Okey pokey, I've replied to the e-mail and added you to the list :)

07-09-04, 12:26 PM
Mcbain, Just out of interest, What is our Lan capacity?

07-09-04, 03:24 PM
Papa Smurf]McB - I've passed your joystick onto IXL to deliver for me (nice chap :)), since i can't make it to L18 :( - how do you wanna sort payment?

NP's fellas. Happy to help..... ;)

07-09-04, 09:42 PM
Mcbain, Just out of interest, What is our Lan capacity?
Thats actually a good point. We supposedly can get up to 40... but that then requires us to borrow tables from another church, which will be tricky as we wont have Sc00bs big car... I'd best check out the options.

08-09-04, 05:37 AM
I'll have my estate there, and if necessary I have roof bars I can fit to it.

There's a list somewhere of what people should bring along - it is worthwhile repeating that?


08-09-04, 12:15 PM
well, PC (or lappy), Power cables, Monitor (or rent one of Mcbain), Game Cd's, system Cd's (just in case), Mouse, keyboard, Headphones (no speakers), will power and a sense of Humour. :)

09-09-04, 10:15 AM
I forgot to mention in my email - can you put my mate Scot|and down as well - he's coming too. Cheers :P

09-09-04, 10:49 AM
Got room for another :P


09-09-04, 03:18 PM
I'm out, I need to work to pay for college, will try and come along once I'm sorted with college, etc.

09-09-04, 04:10 PM

Thats actually a good point. We supposedly can get up to 40... but that then requires us to borrow tables from another church, which will be tricky as we wont have Sc00bs big car... I'd best check out the options.

Actually the car is available - and there's a good chance that I'll be available too...


More nearer the time... But I'm back at work on the 1st of October and the shoulder has been pronounced as healing - I've been told to use it normally (but still not allowed to carry anything heavy for a while...)

So I'm going to see how it is, but hopefully I'll be there :D

09-09-04, 05:21 PM
Thats fantastic news Sc00bs, for both L18 and for you :cheer: Nice one :thumbs:

09-09-04, 05:42 PM
Congrats on the shoulder - don't over do things though!


10-09-04, 09:28 AM
I'll be coming and bringing Jon (Sittingduck) along fellas. (providing I can fix my clutch intime)

On another note, is it worth doing a sort of seating plan to help arrange places n space?

10-09-04, 04:54 PM
I will be looking at seating at somepoint soon. The thing is, there should be plenty of space, we've had 30+ in their easily before, so it shouldn't be a problem.

Thanks for the guys sending their payments in already, if anyone else wants to but doesn't know how, just ask me :)

11-09-04, 12:59 PM
For anyone that hasn't noticed, there is a poll created here (http://www.lanarchy.co.uk/viewtopic.php?p=25010#25010) about the schedule for the day.

Its a simple schedule with only 4 games listed, I'm sure we'll play more on the day of course.

18-09-04, 10:52 AM
I cant believe that being this close to the LAN, only 5 have paid....

18-09-04, 01:51 PM
im sending my cheque on Monday.

[OLSC]Papa Smurf
19-09-04, 07:23 PM
i've paid (assuming banclays have processed the t/f) and i'm the last on the list afaik


19-09-04, 08:45 PM
i would send the money but with them guns looking like that i just dont trust mcbain :P

19-09-04, 10:00 PM
sup guys looking forward to the LANage hope theres plenty of cs :) and pizza

oh quick question i have a strange addiction to diaboloing/juggling is there anywhere (outside) this can be done as it calms me down :) J/K :)

20-09-04, 12:45 AM

20-09-04, 07:41 AM
I'm interested in coming if there are any places left McBain.

20-09-04, 09:43 AM
Okay, I've added you two guys. The only thing that can hinder our capacity, is if we have problem getting extra tables, which I should get confirmed today.

I'll post today if there is a problem... which would mean capping the event at 28 (and knocking 4 people of the current list)... but hopefully it wouldn't come to that.

20-09-04, 11:00 AM
I've been able to confirm the extra tables, so all should be good :thumbs:

20-09-04, 12:04 PM
is that 32 people then

20-09-04, 12:06 PM
if battlefront comes out on the 24th according to amazon and play are we gonna ave a game of that

20-09-04, 12:57 PM
Well... I would imagine the chances of more than maybe even 5 people getting it in time would be quite slim... :( So it is unlikely.

20-09-04, 02:44 PM
You should have just received my advance payment via Khan's paypal McBain

20-09-04, 03:29 PM
Yup, received thanks. :thumbs:

20-09-04, 04:58 PM
mcbain have u got room for another one cos one of our guys thought he would be at uni but he aint now

20-09-04, 05:53 PM
Well, a few of the people from SWG may be able to come....:P

And so may I, but If I did, it would mean coming for only half the day, and hiring a hire pc. :/

20-09-04, 10:32 PM
If everyone turns up (touchwood), Then this will be the largest Lanarchy event I have ever been to!. Ill make sure Ill get there early Find a good seat. :) Ill make sure i wont sit next to any nOObs (Joke). :lol: :twisted:

-logical- Chimp
21-09-04, 09:02 AM
wherever you sit, Mince, people are goin to be sat next to a noob, so dont worry about it... :D

and for the guy askin about the juggling, yes, there is an indoor area (where the pizzas are normally served) that you can juggle* - not sure about the diablo tho - should be fine.

*i intend to bring my juggling balls along for the same reason, and cos im still tryin to get good enough to do 4-ball.

21-09-04, 10:36 AM
@ Zippo - yes mate, please just post me his alias.

@ SpyHunter - I need to know numbers and names if folk from SWG are coming. I will be looking into the seating on Thursday, so I need to know then how many will be coming. If you need a PC, I need to know for sure by Thursday and I need payment for the event and hire by Friday morning.

@ Mince - Yes, this could be our biggest event, although I wouldn't be suprised if we have 6-10 no-shows... we'll have to wait and see :)

@ Chimp - does this mean you're definitly coming? I think we have you as a (p) still at the moment.

PLEASE NOTE - Internet access will be rather limited for me until Thursday now, if you need to contact me e-mail me at mcbain@lanarchy.co.uk rather than post on here. I should be able to receive and send via my PDA, but browsing the forum aint easy on it, so I will probably wait until I get home on Thursday to check back here.

Hopefully Sc00by can keep an eye on things here for a couple of days though :)

21-09-04, 10:52 AM
master andra is his name being a noob is his game

21-09-04, 11:01 AM
Hopefully Sc00by can keep an eye on things here for a couple of days though :)

All present and correct. Sir! :thumbs:

We've got 2 of the SWG guys (in addition to Spyhunter and Sonic) talking about coming. I'll try and get yay or nay from them ASAP.

21-09-04, 12:40 PM
wherever you sit, Mince, people are goin to be sat next to a noob, so dont worry about it

:lol: Biatch...ever heard of Monkey brain soup? :twisted: :roll:

21-09-04, 11:28 PM
sorry scratch andra hes a bailer

22-09-04, 08:13 AM
Ive just been checking out what time I'll be arriving.

I'll be picking up Sittingduck and Smurf on the way (Although smurf is a little way out, its generally on route) I reckon we will be there for between 9:30 and 10. Its a good 2 hours from my gaff at least. And I'll probably want to start to pack up and leave at about 9pm, so I can get home at a reasonable time after dropping people off. So it might be handy if we can be positioned together to avoid early and late disruption.

-logical- Chimp
22-09-04, 10:01 AM
yeah - im gonna be turnin up, McB ;)

initially, i wasn't sure what state i would be in after the holiday, or what would be happenin at work - but everythin is mellow... ;)

i'll be payin on the door, as normal...

23-09-04, 05:01 PM
If you arrive together, the chances of you not sitting next to each other is quite slim :)

Generally, I've found planning the seating to the exact seat/person is not always a good idea because of the turn out rate... ie 31 people say they are coming, then we end up with 20, and lots of gaps around the room. If people know they have friends coming, they can save seats for them, otherwise, just choose your seats when you get there :)

23-09-04, 05:06 PM
Ill sit in the usual place.....

23-09-04, 05:24 PM
There's a usual place? :side: Where ever it is, you'll only sit there if no-one else before you sits there ;)

23-09-04, 05:25 PM
hehehe...Ill get there before everyone else :)

24-09-04, 09:26 AM
Any room at the Inn, i've just recieved a late R&R pass for the w/e and Smurf reckons I should get out more as i'm local to Watford...?

24-09-04, 10:29 AM
Sure EB, I'll add you to the list of attendees.

24-09-04, 01:21 PM
Cheers, just found out I can spit from were I work and hit the venue...ha ha ha

25-09-04, 10:25 PM
Firstly, I would like to say a Big Thankyou to lanarchy for arranging such a nice event. it was well organised and it went by with the least amount of problems (except for the Steaming Pile of Shit for a few peeps).

it was nice to meet some new faces and some old ones (IXL/papa- joke). :)

too bad AOM had that out of sync thing...Maybe it is my install..Maybe it isnt, we will never know... :o.

i can safely say, that I got raped in CS by all those parties that be, including IXL :( . Pizza was Nice and Thanks to Stabzz for lending me his Images of Starwars Battlefront, which IMHO is an amazing game.

Keep up the good work. See ya all at the next one! :)


25-09-04, 10:46 PM
Yes - great fun, hopefully next time I'll at least get a ticket.


Evil D
26-09-04, 12:01 AM

26-09-04, 07:58 AM
Big thanks to All really, it was a great day and made a change to sit back a litle and enjoy some gaming rather than admin a LAN....

Thanks fellas.... Shame we lost the CS tourney in the end..... :S

26-09-04, 09:18 AM
I'd like to say thanks to the LANArchy team, I really had a great day with some awsome StarWars Battlefront. Thanks a lot guys!!!


26-09-04, 12:04 PM
Thanks to all the Lanarchy guys for a great day and thanks to the UKLans guys for the games :D

26-09-04, 12:12 PM
Thanks again Mc Bain for a wicked day and thanks to all those that came. It looked to be the second biggest one you've done since you first started.

Cheers Khan for the games, much appreciated and they are great games, hopefully they will live long enough to be played at the next event. In the meantime will try sort out this steam thing as the SEL missed out on much of the games. Kinda of the same old problems of the games and machines working well at home and then not too well at the Lans. Not sure what happened to my BF 1942.

Will be looking forward to the next one and hopefully fill in some more lans before February - can we all wait that long?.

Well done guys and Ms Scoobs (nice to see you and Scooby again), and Scooby rest that collar bone man :)

26-09-04, 02:59 PM
Thanks to all the lanarchy peeps for everything, special thanks to McBain. i can vouch for all the UKE attendee's as say we had a great time, Loved the CS ownage and the Prize ownage :D :D

28-09-04, 05:55 PM
Sorry for the late reply Guys.

Was a good lan, nice to see you all there. Thanks for coming along and making it a great lan.

I really enjoyed the UT2004 for the first time at this lan, and the CS was fun (especially knifing Mincemeat :P)

Hope to see you all at the next one.

30-09-04, 04:47 PM
lol i look well evil getting my prize

09-12-04, 03:17 PM
Great lan :D

Hopefully DRNK will attend the next and have some proper teams attending ;)

05-03-05, 10:04 PM
I'm probably being a rem but i can't find the pics from this lan, anyone got a link??

Cheers :)

05-03-05, 11:36 PM
Thats a good point, we need to get a link back into the portal, having changed a few times we've lost a few of the links. This thread (http://www.lanarchy.co.uk/viewtopic.php?t=2036) did discuss the old pics, and those for L18 can be found here (http://photo.andycr.com/l18/). ;)

Some good memories of that LAN 8-)

06-03-05, 12:16 AM
That was a Good Lan...I actually won something For once! :o
