Spring 2016 Charity LAN

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. ...

Laclede's LAN at Pixel Pop 2015

September 12, 2015

PixelPop Festival is a Saint Louis based games festival that celebrates a wide range of games and interactive experiences. Their mission is to encourage and empower attendees from all backgrounds and experience levels to develop new skills, explore different methods, and cultivate relationships with other creators and players. In September 2015 PixelPop held their second festival on the campus of Webster University and put a large emphasis on game education.

Summer 2015 Charity LAN

August 8 - 9, 2015

Laclede’s LAN 15 was our biggest event in quite a while, tipping the scales at 149 gamers! Gamers packed up their PCs and came from all over the country to… play Rocket League?! We had fourteen Counter-Strike teams competing for Micro Center gift cards and Counter-Strike keys. We’d like to thank LANFest for their continued support, Ranken for their Counter-Strike tournament sponsorship and attendance, and Saint Louis University for the venue! ...

Winter 2015 Charity LAN

January 10 - 11, 2015

LANFest presents Laclede’s LAN 14 was a resounding success! We managed to cram 125 PC gamers into our original seat count of 120, drank Monster and Bawls, ate pizza, played Smash Bros, ran four tournaments and generally had a blast! Big thanks go out to our community and their enthusiasm, to LANFest for inviting us to be a part of their mission, and to Saint Louis University for providing everything else we needed to make this event possible! ...

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. ...

Laclede's LAN 11

August 4 - 5, 2006

Laclede’s LAN 11 really started to drive home just how valuable Laclede’s LAN was to our community – we were amazed to find out that we had drawn gamers from California, Vermont, and Nova Scotia, Canada. We introduced a Laclede’s LAN General Store, run by staff member PurpleMint, that allowed us to offer a wider variety of sugared snacks and caffeinated soda and coffee to drowsy gamers. This was a welcome service, since this was our first and only two-day event – a grueling gauntlet of Counter-Strike competition. ...

Laclede's LAN 10

April 8, 2006

Laclede’s LAN 10 was our first event that featured a professionally made LL event T-shirt. Every attendee received their very own way to show their world their favorite way to game. Our Quake 4 tournament was explosively fun to watch, and Counter-Strike: Source returned as a perennial favorite. We experimented with selling cheap, hot pizza to the attendees after the complimentary lunch, and new staff member Cypher automated our game servers for the first time – flawlessly. ...

Laclede's LAN 9

January 14, 2006

Better space, a better network, and new sponsors! Laclede’s LAN 9 set yet another high bar for attendance at 112 gamers, and we moved into the cafeteria at West County Technical School, while gaining Allhawkeye85 as a staff member. Our sponsors showed up in force, with Nathan Kirsch from Legit Reviews doing hardware demonstrations for the latest technology, and Nerds on Site bringing the Nerdmobile and a fully stocked booth showing a potential career path for the PC enthusiast. ...

Hurricane Katrina Relief Charity LAN

October 29, 2005

When Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, we wanted to show support by mobilizing the community we had helped to build. We did what we do best – play games! In doing so, we were able to raise $2,180 with the help of Ranken Technical College and Best Buy. Since this was a side project of sorts, we experimented with other attractions, like Domino’s pizza (courtesy of Ranken Technical College), Halloween costumes and game-themed jack o’ lanterns, and an Airsoft shooting gallery in a separate room. ...
