LANSE 51 Feedback.
« on: May 04, 2010, 09:33:54 AM »
Hi Guys,

Please post feedback here.

Thank to Tom, Alex, Frog & Roo for setting up & breaking down.

It was good to see you all back here after such a long time since the last one.

I had a great weekend, and hope you all did too.

One of the major problems with the lack of "all in games" I think was partly down to not everyone having the latest & greatest games.  There was pretty much a 50-50 split with people having BF BC2 or MW2 or none of the above - which made it impossible to get us all in to these games - hence why COD4 & CS:S were about our only options.

On top of that there was the lack of LAN server option which really limited our options - although saying that the dual adsl connection really held up well. Allowing us to get 6 people in HON with 4 others playing MW2 at the same time.

Good:
 - Cod4 - good All in games
 - CS:S - another good game.
 - HoN  :)  My PSR has taken such a beating.
 - Breakfast Rolls - Thanks to Alex for supplying the necessary.
 - Katy Cider
 - Iron Man 2 outing

Bad:
 - Katy Cider + Alex = . . . .
 - Not going out to eat (mainly due to me losing track of time).
 - HoN Rage
 - Lack of Sleep / Fatigue
 - Noisy Switch (might put this in one of the small rooms next time & run the cables out).
 - Lack of choice for LAN fps games.

Very good LAN - see you all at the next one.

It was indeed very funny too.

Our HoN skills were severely impeded by Katy

I'm pretty sure HoN rage was after you left - it was about someone not getting the hero they wanted, then clicking on another wrong hero.

Another good lan done,

Flatout 2 always a big plus, really wish that could have more than 8 players
COH was a good laugh
Like you said 50-50 split was the case as not everyone has the same game
COD4, was ok but just could not get into it, it was not the same by a long shot after playing mw2 for so long.
Iron Man 2 outing was a great idea and good to get everyone of the pcs, though in front of another screen!
Next time I'm bringing a camping bed!
It was good for my bank account not going out for the meal as it does occasionally feel like a shot in the foot.

Best of all good to see people again, it's been far too long and we need to arrange another lan soon.

Yeah an evening out anywhere is definitely good and the cheaper/drunker the better! Movie or something like that should be the staple (f*ck Uno).

Yeah a good big FPS to get everyone in, even if we play a game for only the weekend would be good, put it to a vote perhaps, the games of MW and MW2 were good though. Racing games and FPSs are the way forward since you don't need so much knowledge of them to play I think.

Alex on Cider and HoN rage WERE the weekend highlights, everything else was just a footnote :D
