OT: Mar 1 2014 - Annual LAN Party (and Mafia)

Posting this in the Pub Games since this is a smaller community of folks. Due to popular demand, I'm hosting another LAN Party. I'm scrubbing the old school games that had shitty net code and didn't work properly. I added Civ5 and Pay Day 2 to the list. I'm advertising this early so people can make travel arrangements. I know of at least one person who is booking their flight now.

When
Weekend of March 1st. Some folks will be coming in on Friday or even as early as Thursday. Big game day is on Saturday with it spilling into the Sunday hours.

Where
If you're flying in, you'll want to come into Harrisburg International Airport. I can pick you up/drop you off. If you're driving in, I'm about 15 minutes from there. PM me if you need an actual address.

List of Games
League of Legends
MWO
TF2
L4D2
D3
Starcraft 2
Pay Day 2
Civ 5

and of course, Mafia.

If you have any other games you want to play or try out (like Natural Selection 2), that's fine. Bring your rig, or let me know if you need me to find you another rig. There are other means of "renting" rigs that we can work out ahead of time if you have any issues.

I'll have a few guys from work who are heavy into PD2 and L4D2.

P.S. Just like last time - No children. We'll have alcohol, be irresponsible, etc. Do you really want your children to be around Jobbie when he's drunk? Also, Antonica is not a spouse-babysitter. Don't bring anyone who isn't gaming.

Of course not. But being a Professional Socialite, I cannot possibly bring a rig along. I'll be too busy carrying all my charisma, charm, confidence.... The three C's.

No problem. I do know that some people are flying in. Like last time, I pick up all the other expenses. I'll feed you and give you a place to sleep. I believe we have three people possibly flying in this time (Jobbie, Tigerlord, Blockfire).

Given the baby on the way I doubt I will be able to go. Barring any other engagements I will try and be involved over the interwebs.

With that said, you need to run a cord or something from another circuit this time around and also unplug the microwave .

I could hang a sign on the Microwave that says "NO KRISNATHAROKS ALLOWED."

I could probably run an extension cord, although I think the way my house is wired, the microwave would tax that circuit no matter what's running on it. It's probably better to just leave the microwave out of commission.

Based on what I'm seeing from attendance, I'll have to reconsider room layout a little better. I liked what we had. Nobody was "stuck" in a corner (except you). I'll have to see what the weather is like, but I have that sun room that sits right next to the room we gamed in and could give us more space. If it's cold enough outside, I'd have enough windows to handle our overheating issue.

Just make sure you keep a spot on that tall table for me.

So. At the LAN party, we will be playing Payday 2, doing non-stop speed runs of Rats Pro Overkill, taking shots every time:

1. Jobbie says "come on guys"
2. Antonica says "where'd you get the coke???"
3. Energy gets silently frustrated with everyone's antics
4. Arch calls Jobbie out for already being drunk
5. Anyone kills a special (taser, shield, bulldozer)
6. If anyone goes down
7. 2x shots if someone is taken into custody
6. At the end of every day
7. 2x shots at Payday

Since people are flying in, depending on who actually got tickets, like Arch said this pretty much goes over a few days. I think it's worse to come in for just a day or two... if you are paying the money to come in, get at least a few days in. So I vote for heavy gaming Friday and Saturday and most of Sunday . I'll make sure kids are gone starting Thursday and not returning until late Sunday night/Monday depending on who will still be around.
