HallowLAN is back!

Can we top our record of 75 people last year? Lets try!

Once again MegaFPS is teaming up with our friends at GarageLAN to host a fun spooky LAN party!

What: LAN party! (for fun, no tournaments, but there may be prizes for best costume...)
When: October 18-19-20th (so Halloween weekend is free for you to go trick-or-treating or Halloween parties)
Where: Fulton Place Community League (6115 Fulton Rd NW, Edmonton, AB, Canada)
Games: Anything and everything! The usuals: TF2, BF3, Payday, L4d2, SC2, SupCom, Flatout, Chivalry, Company of Heroes, LoL, Trackmania, Civ 5, Sins of a Solar Empire...
Cost: $20 for the whole weekend!


Picked this weekend last year cause people didnt want Halloween weekend because of parties/trick or treating and the community also wants the hall on Halloween weekend. Can't do the weekend after because that's when Extra Life is going on and a few frag/megafps people will be there.

So: thoughts? suggestions? comments? How can we make this year great?

I've been to a lot of lans, and the best ones have always been the ones that 1) are small and/or 2) focused on one game only. But, I can't see that happening at an event like this one.

Not saying it's a bad thing that we aren't like that, with GarageLAN.

In fact, I like the atmosphere of "anything goes" (what we have now); I think it's nice; makes GarageLAN unique and therefore attractive (to attend) in a certain way. Feels more of a vacation that way (more freedom), where I could be just sitting there in a LAN atmosphere and pursuing my own hobbies (such as mapping, or programming), with the option to play a game if I want or not.

But, I can see how this atmosphere can also take away from the potential fun (or greatness) that could be, because everyone is doing their own thing and sticks to themselves, rather everyone grouping together and doing the same thing and following a schedule (e.g. even just going outside and throwing a frisbee; like I saw at the last event). But, meh.

In general, I would like there to be order and management (which we already have); with no uncertainties(such as e.g. "did that guy pay?", which is a question I get asked a lot from the people I bring to the LAN). But, anyways...

I perhaps would ask you to define "great" and describe how it compares to "great" from the year before. What things are you looking for, or things that you felt were missing from the previous lan(s).

When I asked Hawk to collect money last HallowLAN there were a number of complaints.

By great I mean everyone has a good time and looks forward to the next one.
