I have started to re-host Peace Love and Rockets but do not have anything planned as of yet. I will be putting on smaller LANs at a local LAN center in Richardson called ShadowLAN. I will post on Hardforums when these solid plans come together.
Other than that all of the small LANs have seemed to have died. There is one out in Greenville that I go too every third Saturday of the month, but most people don't want to drive that far.
I was thinking this week about putting together a good old fashion LAN party. Nothing to large, maybe limit it to 200.
What does everyone think would be a good time limit? I was thinking start Friday afternoon and run till Saturday afternoon. I've done so many 5 day (Wed to Sun) events and they just wear your ass out not to mention cost more to attend and host. Simple overnight LAN would be easy to do and not kill all the old farts (like me )
The downside now days to LAN parties is damn near every good game needs internet access. I need to find a few venues that have a big pipe. Maybe host it at some hosting center in the DFW area.
Maybe do a quarterly LAN event year round so the fun never stops.
Trying to find one with the space and internet access is the fun part. Hotels tend to think that internet access is something they have to make a years worth of profit for one day use (greedy bastards).
If you have some ideas on a venue that I should look at let me know. Roughly 2500 square feet per 100 LAN seats.
