Fall 2019 Charity LAN

October 12 - 13, 2019

Another successful LAN under the belt, and another visit from Microsoft with a great VR area featuring Beat Saber! They also brought a plethora of gaming laptops and X-Box One’s for gamers to play and compete with one another on and did open-to-the-public tournaments in Gears of War 5 and Fortnite Duos. Loddy tried out Loddy Lounge (which only ended up being slightly less than 95% Team Fortress 2); Andy set up a casual game schedule with all kinds of titles and helped fill the servers and get people gamin’. ...

Spring 2019 Charity LAN

March 9 - 10, 2019

We aren't big fans of major outages at our events (go figure), so notable tech stack upgrades from this LAN include an improved network stack that allowed for redundancy, power amperage monitoring that helped prevent unexpected power outages, and better control of projected video and audio levels for each section. This all resulted in improved staff mental health. As always, we appreciated Microsoft coming back with their high-end gaming laptops and XBoxes, holding another open-to-the-public Fortnite tournament. ...

Fall 2018 Charity LAN

October 20 - 21, 2018

The LAN party started a bit rough when the internet for the whole building dropped (turns out a lot of PC games are online these days), but luckily BraveSirRobbin (Tim Dollarhide) stepped in with Flash Tournaments to sate the competitive thirsts of the gaming masses! Guess who's back? Back again? Microsoft's back, and their laptops are high-end. They also carted over a few XBox Ones and held an open-to-the-public Fortnite tournament. ...

March 12 - 13, 2016

ROOM UPGRADE! We moved our event from the Il Monastero Banquet Hall into the Busch Student Center's Wool Ballroom with awesome lighting (electronic shades!), better internet, and wide-open spacing. We had numerous tournaments, but our Rocket League tournament final was the real show-stopper. Participants at our LAN gathered around Saturday night to see the final bracket played out on the giant projector above our stage. A Hearthstone tournament on Sunday and the CS:GO finals are just a few items that helped to keep gamers engaged on Sunday. ...
