West Virginia’s Gathering of Gamers is hosting a LAN party this week in Nitro. The event, named 2013 Winter LAN #1, is from December 26th through the 28th. Admission fee is $10 per person or $15 for a family of 4 or less. This is to help cover the electric bill the event will generate. The event is at one of the members house, plenty of room there so do not worry too much about space. They will give you the address when you sign up.
Here is the registration page. You can come and spectator for free though. They would like you to sign up by 6pm today so they can estimate the number of chairs and tables.
Participants will be allotted two power outlets for use with their equipment. Headsets are suggested and a wireless access point will be provided though a wired cable is recommended. No illegal activities, cheating, exploiting, or rough housing at the LAN. Come to the LAN with your computer fully updated and virus free. This includes drivers, video game updates, system updates, and other misc. software updates.
Game tournaments have not been finalized, but expected games include: Counter Strike, Starcraft 2, DOTA 2, Warcraft 3, Call of Duty, Battlefield, and Hello Kitty Adventures. A Trackmania 2 Stadium Tournament is scheduled. It is expected to be about an hour-long. The game is on Steam for $9.99 or buy a three pack for $24.99 for you and your friends. At least one FPS and RTS tournament will happen. Open will also be going on.
A LiveStream of the event will show both the event and the games being played.
A parking map of the event is here. Plenty of places nearby to go and get some food.
I am not really much of a gamer, but I will try to make it over myself just to hang out with fellow nerds and geeks.
