Best thing about GameOn LANs - imo

Besides the good clean facilities, excellent servers and good practical location for most people in the UK, i have to say that the best thing about LANs is when afterwards you really feel as if you met a lot of really cool people.

All in all, I'm pretty new on the GameOn scene so a lot of these "new people i meet" are not necessarily new themselves. Every LAN i have attended i have come away with so many more faces to put to names but the one just gone I think i met the most new people ever. I think it may have been thanks to the tournaments, in particular the Unreal Tournament 2004 1v1 and 2v2 tournaments.

Now, dont be upset if i dont list you here, it may be cos i didnt manage to get your name, or it may be cos i consider that i have 'met' you prior to this lan

SuKaMaDiQ,
OldLady (took me hours to uninstall all the h4x after i let him play a 1v1 UT2K4 match on my rig :P),
Iain,
eC,
Antz (who incidently turns out that we used to be in a CS/DoD clan together a while back),
Zimmer,
Ex0dus,
Gary,
Advance_G,
Switch (last 5 all per0 staff),
the CHEERS clan (in particular Cruel^ with his uber never-miss Lighting Gun skillz),
the SE7EN clan,
the LagMasters clan (a CS clan who played well in all the tourneys EXCEPT the CS tourney - great bunch of lads),
the thk/Dragon clan (although i met benneh last lan - ExumE lives near some dodgy arsed speed humps...),
yates, accel, stealth_uk and nozza

That's a whole lot of people... a lot of which may not remember me. The list of people i spoke to all in all is much larger but I dont remeber EVERYONE's names as thanks to organising the UT tourney's i mustve spoke to a good 50 or so people.


Anyway, ill take this opportunity to also say thanks to all the other staff working uber hard to make the GameOn what it is. AND obviously the users. Without either of these peeps, GameOn simply couldnt exist

GL to Rasher and Kyle aswell as all the people attending EOGC as competitors over the following week. This is only a vague rumour but its possible that I MAY be joining the weekend crew but ive still got to pull some strings.

GameOn - Run by gamers for gamers

Would like to give a big up to all the CS players who managed to surrive a grueling monster CS session on saturday
And a thank you to all the players for been paitent during the UT while we sorted the servers

must agree with you tedd0x. the endurance of the CS teams was phenominal. was it 11am till about 11pm in the league alone? without them all being so prepared and ready to go when they were scheduled it wouldve been so much harder. great stuff cs clans

really enjoyed the cs tourny. 11 tourny games (including eogc) in the 2 days? i'd say that was about 8 more than we'd have played at i21

UT2k4 pfffft, Halos a mans game! And i dont play UT unless im at lan, neither does dev0 so will hav to wait for next lan.

And Halo the exception? Iirc u boys got owned, pwned and then owned some more on Halo...dominated i think might be a better term.

The 59-60 was pretty cool tho, altho last time i played UT2k4 before lan 56 was lan 55, same with dev0. I think sukamidiq played it quite a bit, but he was worse then the rest of us on the night.

Oh well, at least u boys did well in the CS tourney *cough*
