epic.ELEVEN LAN Preview – Epic LAN

Comment

epic.ELEVEN will be the second time the Epic LAN will be held in the Kettering Conference Centre. The centre can be sectioned off into four areas which will be used; the Fair Isle room, the Portland room, the Pendeen room and the Community rooms.

The Fair Isle room is for the competitive gamers along with the quality admin team Epic LAN has provided for each tournament. For loud casual gamers epic.ELEVEN LAN has provided the Portland hall which should provide an epic atmosphere all weekend long. If you enjoy a more relaxed, casual atmosphere at your LAN you are welcome at the Pendeen hall where there won’t be loud music and such but still be aimed at the casual gamer. Finally there are a number of community rooms in which clans or gaming communities can hire out for the weekend.

Throughout the weekend Epic LAN will hold a variety of different activities. There will be LAN wide online games, music playing all day at the Portland Room with some live DJ sets, a quiz will be going down where you can take a cool money prize. Along with this there will be achievements which will be set for attendees to collect all weekend, there will be a puzzle hunt which will ‘take you on a brain-teasing journey through the venue and interwebs to solve the clues’. There will be lots of consoles, beer, social and chill out areas along with a licensed bar.

Which nicely takes us on to the food and drink at the event. The bar will be accompanied by some on-site catering which will be open during the event and all alcohol must be purchased from the bar. A microwave and kettle are available inside however, there is not any fridge space. Kettering is not too far away from the venue and has various catering outlets which will deliver to the venue. These will be listed on the event intranet. Along with the on-site catering there will be a 24 hour snack and soft drink bar including crisps, chocolate, caffeine drinks and essential items for any LAN goer; ear plugs, kettle leads and 4-way cables.
