  • This location is no longer available

Atlanta's PC-gaming LAN group just turned a year old. thanks everyone for your support.
We're at it again.
What games we play?
We get this question a lot. The answer is: a lot of things.
The "regular" games: Team Fortress 2, Supreme Commander, UT2004-Carball, Artemis
The "irregulars": Starcraft(II), Half-Life 2 Deathmatch, <insert random Steam game here>, Rise of Nations, etc.

What we DON'T play:
Anything with "Call of Duty" or "Halo" in the title, or anything that plays on a console.

WHAT YOU GET:

  • A Seat at our LAN event (table footprint: 36"W x 30"D... ish)
  • A LAN connection
  • All-you-can-drink soda (tell us your favorite when you register)
  • Dinner (usually Pizza, or whatever the group decides on)

VENUE NOTES:

  • There is a 30Mb cable internet connection.
  • A HTPC and Media Server are available.


WHAT TO BRING:

  • Your Computer with a wired network interface. (this is obvious, right?)

  • Headphones with or without microphone (expect voice chat to be used)

  • UPDATED Virus protection (Microsoft Security Essentials is your friend).
  • A good attitude and friends (both we also have plenty of :-) )
  • Snacks and other goodies are always appreciated.

WHAT NOT TO BRING:

  • SPEAKERS (Speakers of any sort are discouraged due to the close proximity of everyone, and the tendency for people to bring sub-woofers...)
  • Viruses, Trojans, worms, etc (scan your machine before plugging in)
  • Adware, spyware, etc.
  • Hubs, switches, routers, access points, etc. (these are provided). Any rogue network equipment will be smited by the Network Gods <g>.

RULES:

  • NO SMOKING in the building. Before lighting up, go outside. It's not only common courtesy, it's the law.
  • No porn. If anyone is offended and/or complains, then it MUST go. Just be reasonable.
  • Anyone caught cheating, packet bombing, roughhousing, stealing or messing with other people's property without permission WILL BE EJECTED - NO refunds, NO second chance! We are very serious about this one.

IF YOU SIGNED UP AND CAN'T MAKE IT:
It happens. Traffic, work, dead boxen and domestic overunits can all put a wrench in the works at the last minute. If you cancel 7 days before the event you will get a refund. Anyone cancelling within 7 days of the event or not showing up will be credited for the next event.
