This event has LIMITED seating and we have sold out every major LAN event from prepay alone.

For more information on 'Project X: Awakening!' visit our website @ http://www.projectxlan.com/ and make your voice heard in our forums.

Project X: Awakening! is the much anticipated followup event to our sold out success 'Project X: Redemption!'. The theme and name behind Awakening is to raise awareness of the Canadian LAN party scene. This event will be taking place at the 'Bowness Sportsplex' located in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. At 'Awakening!' we will be tying in a unique balance of PC Gaming, Arcade gaming as well as some special extras including a lounge area, Live music, guest speakers, theater area and much more.

Thanks Darkends! We are happy to support our ISP overlords at Shaw especially when they are providing the LAN with four business 100 (possibly 250) connections :lol:

Are there so many guest speakers that you had to list it twice?

Oh my fucking GOD! I am so going to this now. I have to meet The Pwnerer! Why the hell isn't the computer screen taking my money to reserve my seat!

Speaking of which, how do I pay you other than Paypal since Paypal is shit. Without driving my ass to Calgary.

I kind assumed Joel Gardiner would show up too if you were getting Jarett. Are they going to be playing any games or just showing up to sign autographs and be celebrities?

They will be hanging out, playing games, talking about the film industry and we are coming up with a few challenges to get them more involved throughout the entire event. They are pretty cool guys and if you wanted autographs / pics they are pretty open to supporting the community.

I just wasted about 2 hours driving across town just to find out that they didn't have tickets until next week on Thursday. I had assumed you meant earlier this week. And they aren't even available until late next week, all has been lies! I should have waited for you to confirm. They don't even have a FRIGGIN PHONE NUMBER! Fuck, this experience has pissed me off.
