Hey guys,

we are giving you the chance to give some input on what competitions YOU want to see happen at LANfest 2012

Be creative and realistic, here are a few rules to this,

  • Game must be able to be played offline with a dedicated server
  • Game must feature a dedicated server we can set up
  • Game would need to be available free or is a popular game that almost everybody should have
    - If the game is to be shared at the LAN, it must be a free game, we do not promote piracy at our events
  • The game should be reasonably easy to 'master', nothing with complicated key commands to be able to play properly
  • The game must not have any bonus / unlock features from playing, unless that can be turned off from the dedicated server


We will look at each submission, just remember;
  • Don't submit a suggestion that has already been posted by someone else, you can post different ideas for the same game
  • Feel free to vote for suggestions made
  • we only have a limited number of competitions we can run at the event
  • game suggestions that don't make it as competitions may still be considered to run as non-competition games
  • we may not use all games suggested

Have fun coming up with ideas

"Game must be able to be played offline with a dedicated server"

from what i can find, LoL is a server side game which would require a persistent internet connection to play, so not suitable for LANfest

With the announcement of EOL providing internet, Maybe we could re-look at some BF3 and LoL games :)

I thought all BF3 online servers were public? Just means hosting a competition will be a bit difficult.

I'm keen to rent us a server as long as it's not too much.
I can't find any info about ON3 Networks servers but could rent one from AUS.


I guess it depends if we have the numbers for a competition or not.
Wouldn't be worth renting a server for 5 people...
