Seems odd to me that none of the tournaments offer any dueling or 1v1 deathmatch. Only 1v1 option is Starcraft 2. Just seems weird.

honestly besides Quakecon I don't lan at all. I understand the LAN scene has changed, it's all good, I was just hoping to see more dueling options. I really wouldn't know what is "new" in terms of what people like to play. I'm very old school.

Quake is good, Unreal Tournament, Half-Life, Warsow,

Fighting games are pretty good like Tekken, Street Fighter, Soul Calibur, Marvel vs Capcom, etc.

trying to think of more, in class atm... but yeah idk it was just like ehhh

Quakecon was kind of strange compared to LANs I've been to, I think others that went will agree.

A handful of us attended this past year but I'd say the LAN portion can be so much better. I might actually state that it could very well have been the worst LAN I've ever attended.

That said I'm always up for Quake DM though, I keep a self extracting archive of Quake in my dropbox with modern executables allowing for internal server browsing and fully rendered graphics.

I tell people Quakecon was a blast!!! The atmosphere is amazing. As far as the lan goes bring a netbook. with wirless lol so you can check facebook. No organziation, you sit at your computer or you ask people what there ip address is so you can join there game. It lan per table. No contest, very limited touanmanets and no swag, all that is outside the lan itself in vendor booth or touanament areas. There was plenty of raffles from teh vendors but you have 1000'S of people that entered

Quake CON is just that a CON not a LAN. If I was to go again I would more then likely not get a seat in the LAN area an just attend the convention each day. Gaming is hard to do with that many people and all the LOCK down they do on the network. I know they do it because of file sharing but they completly take away the ability to start a server and have people at the lan play on your server with you etc.

We're pumped about hosting our own LAN up here in Fort Wayne, and our sponsors are excited to, we've got most stuff than people at this point, plus our can food drive should be a blast as we've got a brand new motherboard as one of the big prizes for that.
Get signed up as we're in the final planning stages and would like to know who's going to be joining us for all the fun. We just walked through the room again last night and it got me excited to welcome people to the First FortLAN of many!

To help clarify as we had some confusion over on the Nexus LAN site:
For $15 Prepay ($20 at the door) you get a seat, power, internet/LAN, and a general raffle ticket. (See sponsor list and know it's going to be a good raffle)

We will also have a separate Charity raffle where tickets are earned through bringing non-perishable food items. You'll get one ticket per item (up to 50 items per person)for the special raffle. Feel free to stack the raffle by bringing more items, the real winner is the charity receiving the food! But, you might walk out with a new motherboard and more.

50 tickets is a lot of physical tickets

Have you considered one ticket for the first donation, and then 1 ticket for each additional five or ten?

I mean, I'll take 50 tickets. Just sayin'.
