Title: Q2CTF LAN this summer + tournament
Post by: $lasher on January 30, 2006, 05:34:43 PM
with Q2CTF meeting its slow demise year after year, I think it would be great to finally have a LAN this summer for everyone. My idea would for it to be on the east coast, since that's where most people on, but a bit west of NYC so if someone like crow wanted to come, it wouldn't be -so- far. If this were to happen, who here would make the trip out? Additionally, would anyone here be able to fit these requirements and host the LAN itself, as I still really don't know where to hold it. Lyfe was supposed to hold it in maryland with Ari, but then he turned European and is too weird now.

Additionally, I would like to set up a 2v2 tournament. Every player throws in $20 and the winner takes it all, in true q2ctf fashion, no 2nd/3rd/etc place. I could also extremely most likely get some small sponsors for prizes, mice/keyboards/headsets/mousepads/etc.

I'd go, as long as my safety won't be an issue!

I know of the perfect venue... we could rent HARRY'S BURRITO JUNCTION in NYC!
Q2 + Mexican Food = AWESOME combination! (just be sure to bring a clothespin for your nose!)

No, no body harm from me at least. Can't say I'd say the same about others. I'd also invite Vapid, Bao, etc, so anyone with beef from previous years can do what they want..=p

I have an idea:
Put me, vapid, bao, sly & ekauq in our own section (away from everyone else) with armed bodyguards.

On a serious note: Encouraging violence at social events such as LAN parties are a bad idea.

I was planning on moving to Alb. this summer. But if you give me a date and location I will try hard to be there. Im about 4 hours NE of Maine and would be driving. Anyone along the way is welcome to catch a ride.....

YF - I would stick up for you.  :|

count me in, just imagine the possibilities, watch YF literally unplug his computer from the network and claim lag. Only condition i will go, anyone who doesn't bring/wear deoderant gets a punch in teh face.

BTW slasher, do you have switches/routers ? This gonna be at someones house? hotel? more details plz


And um, ksoul, naveed and myself could all carpool down and be the typical canadian, stopping at tim hortons, saying EH with our heads flapping half off when we talk, blame canada!

I really have no idea where yet to have it, but after talking to a bunch of people, I think a lot of people would come. We need to get in contact with as many of the old school q2ctfers as possible. high, godspeed, mo, rust, doom, stussyboy, attila, es players, ]pm[ players, etc, I think a lot of them would come. We also still need a venue/place to hold this in, as I think I could get 30-40 people to come. Somewhere that can hold these many comps, with power, and wiring, and where we can drink a lot and do drugs. WORM? ;P

while NYC/NJ makes it real easy for a bunch of us, i dont know how good of a location itll be in perspective to everyone else. id like it a bit more west, maybe maryland..maybe even ohio?

Maryland sounds good. Then I can stop by a few friends' places, too.

Ohio is way too convenient for h0ps, and besides... shouldn't I keep smack talk confined to the proper section? :P

I've never been to Maryland, but I guess that'd be okay. Maryland is the site of the old RD LAN Parties.


Title: Re: Q2CTF LAN this summer + tournament
Post by: amarris on January 31, 2006, 12:34:19 PM
michighan wouldn't be too bad a place to have it. more central to westies then NY or maryland. and its not that far of a drive from NYC. From where i live its about an 8 hour drive to NYC and im about 1-2 hours NE of Toronto. Takes about 3 hours to get to border from here and to get to michighan is about 3 1/2 hours, NYC might be about a 4-5 hour drive? Crow can take the bus from AZ and i will cuddle with him at night so he doesn't get home sick.

How long are we looking at here? a long weekend? 2-3 days? 3-4 days?


Title: Re: Q2CTF LAN this summer + tournament
Post by: Wake on January 31, 2006, 12:55:51 PM
Long weekend seems reasonable. Michigan is way outta the way for a majority of the people. I think it's a 13-hour drive for me. Everyone south of Virginia would get fux0red. If it's going to be that far for me it NEEDS to be a Friday-Sunday or Monday thing.

Good luck on contacting everybody!  You think that's even going to be possible $lasher?  This is going to turn into the Blues Brothers.  We're getting the band back together.  We're on a mission from God.  Throw in dozens of cross country road trips....

I'm down.  I'll carpool it with ksoul and degen.

However, inviting Vapid and Bao is just retarded.  No one likes them, just keep them out of it.  But other then that I am down.

Make it a weekend in the summer sometime.

If I go to this LAN, I'm going there to have fun, have a few beer's, "dosile drunk", play quake, and have a good time with everyone including YF. Although one thing did take me by surprise, I brought this to the attention of $lasher and made my feelings to him well known. It would be fun as hell to LAN with Crow, h0ps, Slasher, Naveed, ksoul, degen, bish, and anyone else who wants to go. I will do anything in my power to go to this.

Post by: r3c0n on January 31, 2006, 10:25:51 PM
it would be easier for everyone if this lan was put somewhere in the mid US... say Tennesse? it would be around the same time for everyone to come.. for one im way down in south florida.. and i know it takes 12 hours to get to TN anyway.. plus alot of people are around NC, TN and VA anyways... except you canadians and the few west coasters

Yessss TN :)

GO MEMPHIS...

Me, BadBrent, WORM., Nitemare Walker, lefty (2 hours from here)..

Aren't T! and ebonfade from around here?  but According to the "Memphis" thread they are in Knoxville for college.  Cleaner said it is not too far of a drive.

I might be missing some...

I like the TN or OH suggestions, being in St Louis. I would definitely come, if it's scheduled for a weekend I'm off and even if it isn't I'll probably work it out. Some type of hotel or convention center would be good for anything 20+ people. I would even volunteer 2 computers for servers :) This sounds like it could really happen and would be lots of fun.

Post by: YellowFire on February 01, 2006, 06:24:27 AM
Hopefully this won't turn out like the ACME 2v2 Tournament...
Come LAN time, only two people will show up: an odd combination like $lasher and lefty, and they'll have an entire convention center to themselves for 3 days.

Next day on the forum:
Check out the pictures from the ACME LAN Party! (every picture has $lasher and lefty in it)

It seems the people from the Memphis area outnumber all the other areas   :wink:

Post by: rage! on February 01, 2006, 12:50:05 PM
Umm, yeah....

Target, how the hell are you four hours from ME when you live in Moncton?  I can make it to the border in less than an hour and Moncton in hour and a half?  IF I were to come, I'm sure me and target could ride together.  No point wasting gas for both of us to go down.  But that's an awful big IF.  Be ncie to see hops show up.  But I'm pretty sure he's a little too far outta the way.  Slasher, how you gonna get in contact with all those old schoolers anyway?  Wonder if they still even have q2 sitting on a CD somewhere  8-)

And umm, yeah, its pretty bad when you "fear" for your safety at a LAN party.  Perhaps you should look back and think why?  And at least this way, there's no way for the "lag" to occur.  Oh and the joy, if hops did show up with his computer you could finally stop with the unjustified "wallhack" claims.

Sure everyone has pissed everyone off at some point in this game, but I don't think it's something to take offline about. It's just a game fellows. Sure words have been thrown around, but I doubt anyone here would show up at a LAN with the intent to fuck up someone as annoying as YF :D If that is the case.. that one of you do show up with this intent, it's pretty lame and you might want to seek help. I think we're all old enough to look past a few stupid shit and drama that isn't really worth the time to even think about. 

Soo.. strippers you say? I think I might want to go now.....  :mrgreen:

Umm, sure it was 2 hours to Moncton before the new highway, which has been around what, 5 years now at least?  Going about 120 you can get to moncton in an hour and a half.  And the border I'm telling you is only an hour from freddy.  Check mapquest if you don't believe me :)

I still say Maryland or NY would be my 2 top choices, or hey how about Rhode Island? I know plenty of places here to host a LAN party.
Rhode Island is an awsome state to visit, escpically during the summer time, I'll pick up people from the air port etc. It will be finding a place near the airport for the LAN would be key, and there's a bunch of hotels within 2 miles of the airport that have meeting rooms that can probally hold that many pc's. plus a group discount on rooms if needed. Let me know if this is a good idea, and I'll do some research on it. btw southwest airlines services Rhode Island excellent prices on tickets.

Wow, Fuck off with all the smack talk - bring it to the correct section. As far as RI goes Leg - I think that would be a great location, I plan on driving and like Rage! said - It would be about a days drive.

Times and locations would be great for this so I can start planning acordingly.

Q2 + Mexican Food = AWESOME combination! (just be sure to bring a clothespin for your nose!)

YF, I'll guarantee your safety.  and yes, I'm planning on coming.  Slasher, you already have my email so keep me posted.  I'll need a few weeks' notice to be sure I can make the time off.


Title: Re: Q2CTF LAN this summer + tournament
Post by: rage! on February 03, 2006, 09:14:42 AM
Actually, me, legend and hops were discussing this last night.  My suggestion was to agree with Legend's idea of RI.  The thing is, people in the US can fly to this about the same price as it costs to drive (cheap air fare).  People in Canada (Naveed, Degen, Target, myself) can't fly that cheap.  So we're stuck driving.  If it was Rhode Island, it's less than a day's drive for me or target, and perhaps even Degen or Naveed can get there in a day (pushing it).  The only person who gets screwed over is recon cuz he's WAY too far south.  I mean wherever you hold it someone is bound to get screwed (ie - Crow or Freak among others).  I just think we should try to minimize the damage.

Eh!

NYC to Providence, Rhode Island via Amtrak is between 3 - 3 1/2 hours away. Price averages between $78 and $102 depending on which service you select. Not bad... guess that would be ok.

Florida to Rhode Island via Amtrak is slightly over 1 day (with one transfer between stations), and averages $145 - $245 depending on service.

Title: Re: Q2CTF LAN this summer + tournament
Post by: YellowFire on February 03, 2006, 12:14:59 PM
Yes, there is an Amtrak station in Memphis.
Unfortunately, taking a train to Rhode Island would be quite difficult, as you'd be transferring twice between 3 different train services, and the entire trip would take about a  day and a half. Not to mention the $264 - $288 price range :\

I have monday off, I will do some research on the meeting room I have in mind. I use to work at this hotel back in 1994-1996 before I worked for the cable co. I'll see how much the room rentals are for the weekend of august 18-21st friday is the 18th, so people might be driving that day or flying out, so i'll see what the rates are at that hotel. If the rates are $$$ there is some cheaper places around.
Now keep in mind I can't do this all myself, so those who can help in this process let me know.


For those who need permission *cough h0ps cough* the address is 1940 post rd in Warwick Rhode Island 02886, right next to TF Green Airport in Warwick Rhode Island. This hotel is maybe 100 yards away from the terminal. Also currently speakingwith my brother while putting this post up giving me ideas for this as well.....getting me excited! :-D

yes, if you could give me contacts for both Bao and GS that would be appreciated. This goes for anyone else in this thread that has AIM/MSN/email contacts to any old players that don't play anymore. I currently have Slash, lyfe, ultracherry, sanity, high, soulraper and a bunch of others i will be talking to soon as this gets going

personally i think july is a better month, but it will be more expensive. I also see rhode island as not exactly the ideal place to have it, but I don't know any other options as of yet. I want this to be bigger than just a community LAN, so we can't have it inside of a house, we need a venue. But, I also don't want to turn this into a 'tournament/prize' LAN where people will only go for that purpose, as it's supposed to be more of a community thing, but also with a tournament..half and half.

I was planning a road trip sometime this summer to go out east with a friend anyhow.. but I don't think my car will make it, a bus is an option.. but a several day option... a plane is an option, but my tower is too large to take on as a carry on.. it would need to be checked.. which would mean demolishment.? Maybe a rental car?? /shrug? I definately will be coming with someone if I do decide to drive though.  I probably could get a few of the Immortal guys to come...

rochester ny  is about 6-7 hours from NYC, Washington DC, Ohio, 2 hours from toronto.

15 hours from memphis according to mapquest.

16 hours from St. Paul (mapquest)

6 hours from Providence RI (mapquest)

It may be a bit north, perhaps to find the best location we should start another thread where people post the city/state they live in.  (if you live in a rural or suburban area post the nearest major city)

Once we start a thread we can see where a majority of players live and try to find someplace central.

LEGEND:  I was just suggesting wireless for the fact that it might be easier than running 20 different wires to 20 different computers, and I'm sure we'd have an abudance of wireless routers.  But if you got the cat5e, I guess it won't be an issue.  Of course, wired is always less picky than wireless to setup as well.  Eh, whatever works.  Perhaps there can be choice, considering we'll have all types of routers.

If I might make a suggestion or two...

If you go wireless, (for the life of me I can't understand why you would even want to do that and induce more lag/pl in a local gaming environment), don't use wireless routers or you are asking for trouble. Use an enterprise grade access point if you must have any wireless nodes and then don't expect the performance you would expect for LAN gaming.


Title: Re: Q2CTF LAN this summer + tournament
Post by: Legend on February 14, 2006, 08:40:40 PM
The plan is for wired on the internal LAN, i have a 600ft box of cat5e (more than we need), connectors and a tester. The internet connection if people need to go online itself is to get drivers if needed and maybe a shout cast if we have a tourney. <---My idea HAR. If you don;t have a network card go get one from newegg.com for 10 bucks.
I'm only offering 1 network card to rage and that's it, no one else.


I spoke to the hotel manager today he should be getting me the information tomorrow, he running slow because he is new to that hotel. More to come.

Title: Re: Q2CTF LAN this summer + tournament
Post by: Legend on February 15, 2006, 09:18:11 AM
I understand your point as far as the ease of it. But this will be a wired network for the LAN, I dont mind at all putting in the time to make-test-run the cat5 for everyone. Currently I have 1 server type pc, athalon 1300+ 768 megs of RAM for the Quake2 Server. If any IT guys *cough WORM cough* decide to come to the LAN, any equipment like a good switch would be appreciated. Anyone who has a router either a wireless/wired combo, or just wired would be great. I have 2 wired routers and 1 wireless router to provide for the event. Once we all decide on a venue
i'm going to try to contact some sponsors for a possible raffle for stuff...tbd.

Slasher is doing leg work as well, getting names, area's, clan tags for the webpage that Yellowfire is working on for us.

More to come, any questions please contact $lasher on irc irc.enterthegame.com channel: #quake2ctf.

Use an enterprise grade access point if you must have any wireless nodes and then don't expect the performance you would expect for LAN gaming.

im with worm here, anytime ive ever used a wireless router, i lag in game, even on a lan game we had set up, where the computers and the router were no farther than a 4 foot circle, but still got some lag, like every minute, i also have 1 or 2 cat6 cables, they are the same thing, just thicker casing, so it shouldn't be an issue. I say we have everyone bring a router who has one, so we can hook up our wire, if anyone has a hub, bring that as well.
