Laclede's LAN 13 March 29, 2008

Laclede’s LAN was our last event before a 9 year hiatus. Our staff had reached a point where it was time to focus on other things. We had no idea if LL would ever return; but we knew that putting things on hold was better than hosting mediocre lans just to keep things going.

“I got into LL because of my passion for video games. Not just for the simple act of playing the games themselves, but for the interactions that they allowed and provided. Everyone who attended an LL event was a part of the video game culture. There are those moments in a video game that make you go ‘WOW. What I just did/saw there was amazing!’ And you remember those moments as fondly and vividly as any other memory. What makes playing video games so fantastic is that they allow you to immediately connect with someone who you’ve never met before and reflect on your shared experiences and memories of a certain game. Games connect us to each other. And Laclede’s LAN served as our real-world hub where gamers from all over the country could come together and delight in reliving those shared memories, while at the same time providing an avenue where we could make new ones together.” Most-Killed-in-Flash-Tournaments-Staff-Member, BraveSirRobbin.

Fortunately, in 2014 we were able to reboot LL!
