Two Weeks out to No Latency LAN

No Latency LAN has updated some information for their LAN Party. They have seats still available for those interested in attending.

Just wanted to give you guys an update! We’ve been working hard on getting all the pieces together for the LAN and are sitting almost 2 weeks out!
 
We have secured our internet at the Enoch building and are looking to have over 200mb/s usable throughout the event! I would still come prepared with all of your games updated as it will still take a while to update if you haven’t.
 
There will be LAN servers running at the event. So far I’ve created two 10-man 128 tick CS:GO servers, a 32 man TF2 server, Quake Live, 32-man CS:GO Casual, and we will have an on-site Mumble server for comms. We have room for more so if you have any suggestions, please let us know!

LANWAR 58

LANWAR 58

LANWAR 58 is January 15-17 and they just hit 300 gamers paid and registered! Only 50 paid attendees until they giveaway 7 seats. They have Zalman, SteelSeries, Bawls and CPU Magazine as sponsors so far.

Tournaments

Official Tournaments at LANWAR 58 will be Counter-Strike: Global Offensive 5v5 and League of Legends (Free Download) for team tournaments. With Hearthstone (Free Download), Super Smash Bros Wii U, and TrackMania Nations Forever (Free Download) for non team based gaming.

LANWAR also has loads of Un-official (Fun) Tournaments. Some of which are Duct Tape Wars, Heroes of the Storm, Rocket League, Settlers of Catan, SpeedRunners, Starcraft 2: Legacy of the Void, and Texas Holdem. Of these tournaments, TheLPX will be running the Starcraft 2: Legacy of the Void tournament and assisting Spatula City with the Rocket League tournament.

Fat Pipe

LANWAR via their Facebook page mentions they have 1Gbps symmetric pipe (so 1Gbps Up and 1Gbps Down). That way you can stream as much as you want. They warn however, that even a 1Gbps pipe can get saturated (especially early in the event) when everyone is downloading new games on steam so please help avoid that by updating your games before the event.
