I enjoyed the LAN for the most part, up to the point I disappeared with the poops and the sickness (thanks Blade :P)

Would have liked to have played some more Q4, only had one map with Dave and Blade.  I enjoyed my first tastes of BF2, but like previously stated, all of a sudden lots of people would drop and poo poo the game.

I think if the server power is there, it might be worth having some small 5v5 servers running things like CS:S, Q4 (CTF or ACTF), etc. all the time, so that those of us that don't play RTS games can just jump on and see if anyone joins.

Then with a schedule inplace you can knock theres servers off and fire up the main ones for the big all in games?

Maybe go back to the idea of having a mini tourney when there are enough people attending?

Personally considering the size of numbers (new peeps aswell) and the fact that you admined the whole event practically on your tod you did well Jason.  Thanks

ahem how can you put chris green down as a reg ??

anyhoo - I'll put my 2c in and agree that it was the worse one I've been to. I know I'm a dota fanboy but I do like CoD, 42, BFV, Quake, starcraft...

Seriously, I don't want to go to a CS:S lan. :(

High point was monopoly tycoon (even tho I sucked) so thx to bluey for finding another weird but good game.

Suggestion: Organise some all-in games and rotate them. Simple.

Hey all, Caveman, the AWP whore, from 5punk here, thought id say thanks very much for putting up with us all for the whole time, we arent exactly the sanest people youre likely to come across. we had a great time, sorry about changing the normal order of things; was our first LAN for most of us.
im afraid i may have to attend some more LANSE's in the future, possibly separate to 5punk, because i ahd a great time and its so local.

I'd say, appart from the heat and the breakfast, it was a very good lan. special thanks to the guys who helped me with all my problem over the weekend. When my PC broke on the friday, I was considering heading to the train station and going home  :(

This is really for PlanB:

Please can you get the following installed on yout PC's:

BF 1942 (& DC)
BFV
Warcraft3
C&C Generals & Zero Hour.

The main reasons BF1942 & BFV were'nt played was due to above.

I understand you are having problems with Zero Hour, but I'm sure the exporting of the registery will help with that one.

Hi all

Enjoyed the LAN and pretty much agreed with the above.  Though I was quite warm and the sleeping room was toasty :)

I think mainly the lack of regulars and non 5punk attendees was the problem.  5punk (understandably) wanted to play games with each other and there wernt really enough people to do anything else.  I had a great LAN though.  I enjoyed CS:S, COD2, and Quake3 plus had some great Dawn Of War games.

But cheers to all of 5punk as you all seem a great lot :)

We can try to install those games Jason however we dont own some of them anymore and we are trying to be legit :p

And Generals :/ dont get me started.  We have biiig problems installing it, as the keys are written into the .exe as well as the registry and if they mismatch the game will crash :(.  However proff may have found a special .exe to get round that.

We are also moving to XP this week so that should also help lots of people out.

Lo,

I actually had a pretty decent time. There was a few "oh, everyone's going different things at the moment & don't want to do an all in game" moments - and even after some encouragement didn't leave their games.

Looking at the feedback (breakfast & temp aside as they can be easily fixed), I'm getting it -ve feedback from two camps:

1. The camp that want's to do their own thing and doesn't want to be "encouraged" to do all in games

2. The camp that wants to do big all in games.

I can't please everyone all of the time :)

Having said that, a schedual would have resolved some issues here as camp 1 your see that some free time was comming up soon, and camp 2 would be pleased that camp 1 would be joining them in some all in games.

Fragmentation is the bane of all LAN events (with 50 or less players), and I've spend years trying to minimise it. Yes schedualling does help, but it needs players co-operation to work. You still get the stubborn group that want to continue to do their own thing regardless of what's going on - but I'm not going to force anyone to do something they don't want to do.

Having thought about it and should a large number of you (5punk) want to come down again, I would change the format of the weekend slightly:

Friday night would be for installing ALL games that you don't have installed so that you are ready for Saturday.

I enjoyed the 5punk v LANSE, so i'l like to continue that theme throughout the weekend - but instead of just CS:S / BF2, we would rotate through loads of games, spending an hour or so on each (with free time in between) - that way everyone plays a game they are good at & you get to experience loads of games.

Comments?

Must play farcry! with that many people the enginners should be able to build the walls and bunkers :)

And some time wasting games while the big games get ready.

Flatout :)

Hehe, your funny :lol:

Had a good time as ususal, however, cold, breakfast was not very nice and my bro in-law died halfway through the weekend,apart from that it was ok from my point of veiw.

Enjoyed having the spunkers there, great bunch of guys i think we will welcome back again.

Schedule is probably not a bad idea, it would give those that dont wish to partisipate in xyz game a chance to know when to get food, a quick nap ect ect.

BTW, i saw the empty can tower, did u guys really drink all that beer, as i thought i would have an advantage but still found myself at the bottom of all the scores :(
