Signup for the November LAN

(8th - 10th November 2002)


Hi Guys, 


Welcome to the LANSE October news letter.


First of all I'd like to thank all of you who came to the July LAN, who
made it such a great event. Most of you who went have posted your
feedback in our forums
um/viewtopic.php?t=124> here, if you haven't done so, please can you
drop a few lines down for me.


Kerr assures me that all the pictures from that event will be up by the
end of the week. If you have some pics from July, please can you mail me
them  <mailto:(jason@xxxxxxxxxxx>  <mailto:(jason@xxxxxxxxxxx>


We have set the dates for the beginning of 2003, the dates are:


31st Jan - 2nd Feb 2003


28th - 30th March 2003


You are now able to signup for both of these LAN's on the web.


Winner of BlackNova traders decided!


The winner of BlackNova traders is LEMBIT. He has a week to collect his
prize - free entry to  LANSE 12! If he doesn't want the prize, it will
go to the next person in rank until someone else does.


The BlackNova traders game will be reset on the 18th of October. The
next game will be faster - to make life more interesting. You can get
some practice in on the existing game before the reset:

Price Drop!


As of LANSE 12 (November LAN), the number of people requited to get a
group discount has dropped to 4 (from 5) - this should make it easier
for you to get a group together & save money!


Depending on the financial situation, we will be reviewing our prices
for single players in the new year (ready for the January LAN). If my
calculations are correct, we will be dropping the price by £5.00 across
the board - and scrapping the one day admittance (and 2 day for groups)
so the price will then become £20.00 for single players & £15.00 for
groups for the full weekend.


Prizes @ the November LAN!


We will be offering some GAME vouchers as tournament prizes for the next
LAN - sadly I have no sponsorship confirmed at the moment, so the prizes
will be out of my own pocket. Hopefully EnergyPimps will provide some
prizes too. . . 


We will be giving prizes for 2 events - 1942 6v6 (or whatever number
best fits) & UT2003 last man standing.



LANSE IRC channel


We now have our own IRC channel, it's #lanse on quakenet. There are
normally 5 or 6 of us in there at peak times. pop in & say hi!



Games you MUST play!


There are currently 3 games around at the moment that I simply can't put
down. . . . 


Battle Field 1942.


This is a true Second World War sim, in which you can control any moving
thing you would normally expect in a WW2 battle. There are jeeps, tanks,
APC's, fighters, bombers, aircraft carriers, destroyers, subs - all of
which you can control & destroy  - not to mention the 4 infantry classes
you can choose from, or the 3 types of gun turrets you can jump into.


The Maps are massive - hosting up-to 64 players at anyone time.


I really recommend this game to anyone who plays multiplayer games


Unreal Tournament 2003


At first glance, to be honest I thought the game was just like UT but
with nicer graphics. Now after playing the game for a while on a LAN,
I'm really getting into it. There is so much more functionality built
into the game. The maps are great. And the physics engine feels just
right. Of course there is going to be the Q4 Vs UT2003 debate when Q4
shows it's face, but until then UT2003 is the finest 1st person
shoot-em-up. (I'm not comparing it to 1942 BTW - it's a totally
different game!)


Warcraft 3


I've always liked RTS games, I've been playing them since C&C (unless u
count Elite?). Warcraft 3 has to be the best looking RTS game, with a
gripping story & excellent characters. The visual effects are stunning,
the controls are simple - yet functional. I really like the inclusion of
a "lead character" which follows you throughout the game, which you can
upgrade skills & give magical objects to carry to help boost fighting
ability. The single player missions are. . . well. . . easy (but good
none the less) But it's Multiplayer when the game comes into it's own.
Battling against skilled human players gets very tricky. . . . 




Well, that's about it from me - Thanks for taking the time to read this,
Hopefully see you in November!
