Re: Warfactory - St. Louis LAN on July 25th, 2009

Apoptosis ... I'd say that the scene isn't dying because of broadband. LANs are the only option for truly competitive gaming. Lag isn't the only killer ... it's cheats and hacks, griefers, and sheer laziness. I think people aren't coming out for a lot of reasons, but "disillusionment" is the #1 righ...

Re: Warfactory - St. Louis LAN on July 25th, 2009

Hey Guys ... Just chiming in for the discussions. I'd love to hear any and all suggestions about revitalizing the LAN scene. Lots has changed in the last 6 months and other local LAN groups are dead. I can understand why a lot of gamers may migrate away or think they're "too old" or have just switch...

Warfactory - St. Louis LAN on July 25th, 2009

Hey LR Gang, Those of you who are in or around the St. Louis Area take note that we're hosting another LAN this Summer on July 25th, 2009. This is going to be a "Back 2 Basics" affair where we hope that the true LAN enthusiasts who want to show off their rigs and play a variety of games will show up...

Re: St. Louis LAN Gaming - Warfactory LAN on March 29th 2009

Yep, the event happened as planned. Being on-campus was an asset, but the date wasn't my choice of course and probably made a bunch of folks skip it. I'd rather be LANning on any given Sunday, esp. with the alternatives ... The great thing about this one was that there was a good mix of people, spli...

Re: St. Louis LAN Gaming - Warfactory LAN 2008

Computer gaming events can feature any kind of tournament that people demand, there only needs to be support from the community. The problems that we experience are pretty straightforward ... most gamers don't seem to want to commit to an event early (even if a discount is offered) and even more are...

Good discussion guys. This is Dave "killdashnine" Derington from Warfactory chiming in. It's good to see Bubba from the original crew and hello to the rest of you who've been gaming in the St. Louis scene over the years. The LAN scene has changed in St. Louis. I started running events in 2002 via Wa...

I had the same problem, which totally dumbfounded me for days. I purchased a new monitor and things didn't work. I reinstalled the game, etc. to no avail. What I finally discovered is that it broke down to video problems. There's a folder that's created for BF2 that holds your video and other settin...

Regarding the CS 1.6 v CS:Source conflict, I'll have to say that we went through a very painful discussion that extended well beyond our site. We did a lot of research on the subject and in all, I found it pretty surprising that there's such a furious conflict between people playing (more or less) t...

i don't think i'm gonna go. $20 is too high for a lan, in my opinion (by the way, the last laclede's lan lanparty was only $12 and was a total success). hopefully, the next one will have more in-demand game tourneys and won't cost as much... i'm going broke :( damn you, gas prices! While we'd love ...

If any of you in the St. Louis area are planning on coming, there's still a chance to beat the rush and avoid the waiting list via PayPal. We're looking forward to hanging with th...

Where is the $20-$25 going? That is a pretty high price for a local LAN party. If it fills up that is $2000-$2500... are you going to have cash prizes for the game winners? As compared to QuakeCon, the money is a bit high, but until we grow a bit more and find steadfast sponsors (e.g. we get a Mark...

I guarantee that the lack of tournaments was more than half the reason why many of the registered players didn't show up to the lan. There's just not as much motivation for many of us when there is nothing to be competing over. We were completely aware going into this event that the lack of tournam...
