    Lan Party Time

    Sup peeps. Me and the homies are having a lan party tonight, mostly playing Counterstrike and Warcraft III. The last few have been a blast to say the least. Any of you out in WBB get together for lan parties? Have any stories? :alcoholic
    Too cool for school.

    A war3 player, eh? I used to be pretty good at that, but now I'm playing for the first time since December. It's not very pretty. What race do you use?

    Lan parties rule. Used to go to them quite a bit but kinda out grew them. Got tired of everyone playing Quake (2&3) and CS.

    LAN parties are fun...sit there, play games, drink some alcohol, play more games. Maybe go see some naked girls afterwards.

    hehe.

    We used to have lanparties in a basement. There were up to 43 people as our record high. Some peeps actually used to stay until 6am the next day, while the hardcores used to sleep over the night before the lan for some practice CTF/DM. We mainly played Q3, UT, UT2k3, HL, RF and Need For Speed. In the evening there was about half the people that would start up WC3 with a few MP games of it running.

    RL LAN story:

    A friend of mine decided it would be a good idea to buy food before the big LP, so we hit up a superfoodmart. I got junk (2years ago mind you) and he got these generic brand pizza-bites that were on sale. At like 4:30AM were leaving to get some sleep.

    Waking up with like 2 hours of sleep the 24h LAN begins... Like 1/4 way through he had a few drinks and nuked the pizza bites. 20m later he is plastered and the pizza bites are eaten (all 6 or 7 boxes). I'm winning a Q3 DM and I'm hungry, so I go grab a bite.

    I went to grab a burger upstairs and all i hear is pukes and dry heaves... Later I find that EVERYTHING is splattered with pepperoni pizza-bites... I think his pic was put on a LAN Party pic site or something with his face on his KB. :/

    PN: There was food available and tables were provided from multiple sources. there was also a small fee for entry as it would bring the electrical bill up a few hundred bucks.

    Haven't seen you on UT lately, I miss the easy frags. You can always play instant action against novice bots afterwards to rebuild your shattered ego.

    My group of friends have lan parties reasonably frequently. We're planning on having another session at some point this summer. Generally we play Diablo 2 and Warcraft 3. There's not really enough of us to have a decent FPS game. Best lan we've had is probably where we tried (and succeeded) to conquer the Warcraft 3 Tower Defense map that comes with The Frozen Throne.

    43 people? Impressive AllUp

    Whatever tank-ho.

    I've actually been hella busy and lost touch with the nerds for roughly 2weeks. The computer isn't at my house as I'm having moving issues so it's in the "LAN basement"

    PN: I'll be getting a mic on my way home tomorrow, so you will be able to hear my foul gaming language first-hand next time i'm on.

    It still runs like ass on my system so I won't play it seriously until I get a new system. Until then I'll log on maybe once a week to run over and pancake people with the vehicles in random servers in onslaught mode.

    Thanks,

    Yeah that tower defense map is insane. I think there were several remakes as well. Fun until you play for a while and get zerged by like 100 enemies.

    in norway, in a big sports indoors arena, 5000 gamers gather each year to play and have fun, its really nice for the lan fans.
    A big thanks to all my friends in the USA, I am deeply grateful for your hospitality and kindness.

    Sweet, I know someone who has Halo parties with like 6 or 8 peeps. Seems cool, but I love my monitor resolution and I dont think i'd ever get used to a FPS using a controller.

    10 people isnt bad at all, Initially ours started with 3 people, 3 old ass computers and Quake. . Quake 1-3 was always our cup of tea.
