    Re: Thoughts

    I had an awesome time with all of the people I've gamed with for the last 2 years. LAN parties are always fun, but something about this one was epic. If you live in the States, there's no reason you shouldn't go to the next one.

    Just make sure we're not at that HoJo again. We don't need any more 4:00am phone calls about a bench.

    Re: Thoughts

    Ha! I had an absolute blast, and it was great to finally meet you all.

    As my first LAN, and my first time meeting "internet people", I couldn't have asked for a better experience with a better bunch. It was just awesome. All of it. The highs (pushing the final point, capping it, and hearing everyone go nuts), the lows (Dave and Attack raging), and the WTF's (Rave mattresses and bench charges).

    Re: Thoughts

    Well I had a blast. The drive home Saturday night was rough but I made it!

    My own thoughts on the entire event:
    - The Hojo there is shit. I would have rather driven a few miles from the LAN center and stayed somewhere nice.
    - The swag table needs to stay CLOSER and within view!
    - Strangers enjoy our free beverages so we should put them with the swag!
    - Nickynitro has some serious homosexual tendencies bottled around an unhealthy obsession with eating souls. If you weren't there, you wouldn't understand but count yourself lucky.
    - Courtneynitro spends too much time on Farmville.
    - Painpig was one of the coolest mofo's to game next to. He's also a pain in the ass with a rocket launcher.
    - Painkiller was the other pain next to me. Cool dude too!
    - If you sit on Bigg's lap, those aren't keys in his pocket.
    - Twizzy reminds me Larry the Cable Guy's retarded 3rd cousin that nobody really talks about but I love him anyways!
    - Blaaam gets so into his games I think I made him shat himself two or three times. (That means, DON'T sneak up on him.)
    - The guys at the back at the LAN center had so much sugar and snacks by them I came home with diabetes just from walking past their desk.
    - Dread has equally good tastes in pc cases as she does sushi but can't walk more then 5 feet without tripping over something. (Don't worry, no one saw that... The first time... or the second time...)
    - Panda's rat err dog is the coolest gaming dog ever. No seriously, it just sits there and chills.
    - The dude with the rotating police lights on your desk. I can't remember your name because I suck at names, but I'm throwing you in there because I've never seen someone make online gaming feel like a rave.
    - Fluffy, dude take your blow back flame thrower and shove it up your $#@!
    - Waffles needs to work those pecs a bit more! 17........18............he's shake'n..............................19........... .................................................. .........20!
    - I really need to test server shit more then a day before the LAN! Eat a dick Nick, I know it was right!
    - Easy, you're a f'n bitch man. I was trying to get you to go and you're all, "No Than, my vagina hurts." but Nicky threatens to eat your soul and show up. Whatever man!
    - Any time I get sniped by Daniel Jackson it just bothers me so I will switch to sniper and shoot him in the god damn head, every time he kills me. I don't care how long it takes to find him and kill him, I have like OCD over it now.
    - Commander Sour has some interesting tastes in hats.

    And I'm sorry I can't think of anything to say about any one else, but it was a great weekend. I'll post some screen shots this week from the games we played.

    Re: Thoughts

    I think most of your diabetes came from my table. A Reese's candy bar, $4 bag of Doritos, 12-pack of Brisk Iced Tea, three packs of generic Wal-Mart toaster pastries. Then there were the Twisted Teas, Monsters, and Crackheads.

    Also, HoN players after 9pm are insane.

    I'm curious if Miko came back home to find Pennsylvania Liquor Commission agents at his door to collect on his soul he signed away to them.

    The LAN was definitely a great time! I really enjoyed getting to meet everyone and hang out! My GF wanted me to tel everyone that she thought everyone was very nice and a fun group of people and she approves of me hanging out with ya'll rofl

    I'm gonna start calling him Zabookins.

    Re: Thoughts

    I had alot of shit going on this past weekend, but I'm glad I made it out there on Saturday night. This was also my first time meeting "internet" people and first time at a LAN event. I was worried that I'd get burned out playing games for hours at a time, but it was just so much more than playing games. As a matter of fact, I spent more time talkin to people and hanging out than actually gaming. The hours flew by. I'd like to thank Nicky for massaging my vag (as Thanatos pointed out) which finally convinced me to go, and also for the tremendous amount of work he put into coordinating this event.

    Re: Thoughts

    So i must say, this Lan event was pretty epic. Not only was the center filled with awesome people, but the fun factor made 6 flags look like 1 flag.

    NERV did an awesome job at keeping up with us, the HoJo was disgusting, but fun to rearrange their inside/outside furniture into the rooms we saw fit. Perkins got my order right 3 days in a row, and the food was delish. The gaming, prizes, tournaments, screaming, cheering, QQing, high fives, back humping and endless amounts of frags will remain in my memories forever.

    You guys and gals are seriously a fun group to hang with, and you better believe I will be at the next one.

    Hope everyone made it home safe!

    Re: Thoughts

    Awesome lan!

    Here are a few of my suggestions:
    More tournaments that aren't just single elimination!
    Maybe have team picking with captains that are persistent throughout the entire lan!
    More utilization of lan servers!
    More scout vs scout capture the flag!

    Less energy drinks!

    And the stream: Sorry, we got lazy and just left the laptop that was recording it in a sideroom where only Flaf and Zell were playing.
