Well after a break over Christmas and the New Year, we are pleased to announce our next LAN will be held at our usual venue in Watford, St. Marks church hall on -

Saturday 23rd April

http://www.lanarchy.co.uk/images/venue/stmarks/inside.jpg

The address of our venue is -St Marks
Leggatts Way
Watford
Hertforshire
WD24 5NQAs usual we will be running dedicated servers and competitions of CS:Source, UT2004, AoM and maybe Call of Duty. 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 as always is only

Dammit!!! Why does it have to be this day? Smackdown is in town the night before and RAW the same day! I don't know which one I am going to yet but either way, makes for a bad time for me. I hope that you all have a great time. Unfortunately I will be moving to Texas in May so I guess that I won't be able to hang out with the greatest LAN Party crew ever. You all take care!!!!

Everyone is welcome. :thumbs:
Though please be aware that we do have a maximum number of people that we can physically seat. Whilst people are welcome to pay on the door if you pay in advance you guarantee your place! If the take up is high we can't guarantee places to those hoping to pay on the door.

Hey there me and a freind would really like to come. Never been to a lan in uk, and would love to. But I'm confused, the lan is only from 10am to 10pm on saturday :shock: ? Dont you guys do ones that are friday to sunday or something? :lol:

McBain
05-04-05, 10:27 AM
We don't, no. As I mentioned in the other thread, in the London area a decent room to be used overnight goes into the thousands of pounds, making it totally unfeasable :(

Oh ya, 1 quick question, are you gonna be running a dedicated COD and COD:UO server on the day?

McBain
10-04-05, 08:16 AM
We wern't going to... but things can change. We do enjoy a little CoD (we don't have CoD:UO though :( )

demonfist

Yep I look forward to it - Demon

Peter Piper
17-04-05, 03:08 PM
We the [SEL] will be there to represent. But i must say i am disappointed by the small number of people that have signed up to come. Where are the likes of Hunter, Skavorn and others who were at the others. Its been almost 3 or more months since the last lan. Not only that, but im i right in saying this is a Lan gaming website?. So where are the names of most of the members, what are you guys running from?.

Ok, its only a week away, so lets see some more people added. You all been asking for a Lan, have been given months notice, so come on guys. You got what you asked for, so lets now show some faith in Lanarchy man. And yes, if you have studies and exams, then come on man, its only one day. Thats all i have to say...................cya all there

Mincemeat
17-04-05, 03:47 PM
I will pay on the day Mcbain. and yes, peter piper is right...hasnt been a lan for ages yet not many people are posting their interest.

HUNTER
17-04-05, 05:06 PM
I'm working that weekend. I should be fine for LANs if they aren't the last weekend of the month.

Mincemeat
18-04-05, 12:46 PM
so whats the schedule for this Lan - Games, tourny's , food etc...

I have source, UT, BF (+mods), Cod, vietnam, NFSU2... :)

Lestat
18-04-05, 01:58 PM
I only have Source atm is this going to be a problem. Should I try to get more games ? To much of a MMORPG freak :)

Mincemeat
18-04-05, 02:04 PM
well, Im sure people can bring their cd's or images and all the mods and patches with them. ;)

Dont worry, I think Wintermute has almost all the backup images on his machine.

McBain
18-04-05, 02:13 PM
If you have the chance to get hold of one of the others, it would be good. But as Mince says, don't worry about it if you can't ;) :side:

briktopp
18-04-05, 09:08 PM
i have just patched UT 2004 to 3339

i have my 2nd version of HL /CS. I will bring madden 2005 and AOM. i'm happy to install others on the day

i will be keen to find out what MMORPG games people like these days

McBain
18-04-05, 09:23 PM
I believe v3355 is the latest UT2004 isn't it?

I will do a thread about latest game version soon, so everyone can check.

We went to RetroVision 5 held in Frome , UK.

Here is our Website - http://www.UKRockers.co.uk

If this event is a success we may considor coming along to more of them... I was looking at the photos and there was only PC's there?

We would bring LAN'ed XBOX's - PS2's - Dreamcast's - GameCubes and loads of LAN games , posters , banners , prizes for tournaments..

Let us know
UKRockers@hotmail.com

McBain
19-04-05, 11:37 AM
Hi there.

As you say, there are only PC's, everyone brings there own. I'm not sure there would be time for playing on consoles :side: I'll leave it up to the guys coming though, give a shout if you want them to come along I guess :)

@ Mince, I'll get a schedule sorted ASAP. Had lots going on recently, so haven't planned it all out just yet. It will be very similar to previous events though, much the same games :thumbs:

Does everyone have a legit CS:Source?

UKR_DreamcastUK
19-04-05, 06:47 PM
ok np .. if you don't need us there thats ok we will look around for other events...

take care and good luck with the event.

Mincemeat
20-04-05, 05:10 PM
Mcbain, do you think it would be ok if I install the games (UT, CS Source and others) we will play on my laptop? Will it work, and how much space in gigs would it all take.?

McBain_PDA
20-04-05, 06:05 PM
to get all the games I would think in the region of 10gig, as UT and BF are both in the 4 gig region I think...

Mincemeat
20-04-05, 09:38 PM
and Lastly, would it be possible to play Source on my Laptop, using the same account (steam) of my current main PC?

So, ie download steam, install CS source, and use my current steam account?

cheers.

Sc00by
20-04-05, 09:47 PM

McBain_PDA
21-04-05, 09:55 AM
Here is what I'm thinking for a schedule 10am - Setup
11am - CS:Source
12noon - UT2004
1pm - BF:Vietnam
3pm - CS:Source
5pm - Misc (CoD?)
6pm - UT2004
8pm - CS:Source
9:30 - Packing awayThis is of course very much subject to change...

Comments, thoughts and opinions?

McBain
22-04-05, 09:30 PM
Well, I think I'm pretty much set. We had a LAN a few weeks back I don't think any new patches have come out since, so my shuttle should be good to go :thumbs:

Don't forget folks, PATCH UP SOURCE AND TRY IT IN OFFLINE MODE!

For anyone else sat waiting for tomorrow, I'm on the server... waiting for someone to play with ;)

23-04-05, 10:25 PM
I echo what Gamith says. Although it was far from the smoothest LAN ever, it was great to see some old friends and finally meet a couple of new ones :thumbs:

I had a great day all round, which perhaps explains why it seemed to fly by so quick.

See up all on our server tomorrow night for more of the same ;) (Don't forget to get TeamSpeak (http://www.lanarchy.co.uk/viewtopic.php?t=2646) too)

Peter Piper
24-04-05, 11:33 AM
Yeah guys, a great day and everyones prized machine worked like it should. All games played were great fun and yes it went by so quick. Nice also to meet new players as was seeing Briktopp again (wondered what happened to him).

Will be looking forward to the next one and hope those that missed this one attend the next to attone for their sins.

Maybe the problems you had were due to having a long gap between the last lan, and the equpment was rusty. Anyway, well done again :D

Mincemeat

I think too much CSS led Penguin133 to auto-hide behind the available cover :-) it weren't deliberate on my part anyway.

Also I note that blue or green seem to be the official lanarchy car colours, - and heaven help those that don't follow along ...

Where else have you held/thought about holding lans?
Us? We did a couple of a school in Watford area, we did one in the centre of London cause someone lent us their work place :)

It's mainly about hall hire prices, the place we have now is pretty much the only place we can afford if things turn out a little low in numbers like last week.
