+1 for walking tacos or hard tacos!
+1 for Wings as well!

I know a couple patrons that have celiac disease, a gluten-free option or 2 would be really nice, these options are usually gluten-free.

It certainly would have been worth mentioning that our top *4* picks would wind up being selected and not the top 2, as I know a number of people that would have voted for Hearthstone that I didn't bother referring to the poll since I had assumed it was pointless and there was no way HS was going to beat out League and GO for either of the top 2 spots, I figured we'd just cross our fingers that it would wind up as a staff pick. It's a little late now to be revealing this information.

Basically, voting itself makes sense, but if only the top 2 voted games count and League and GO are on the list, there's not much point to taking a vote besides as a formality. It's not at all unusual for LANs to decide tournaments without a poll when the games people want to play are so obvious.  For the voting to be meaningful, it would need to extend to the top 3 or 4 picks, which no one was informed that it would, so I don't think anyone really took it seriously.

I agree that taking a vote for the top 2 when there were 2 such obvious frontrunners was a bit redundant.

NeXus has a lot of experience running LANs and I think a lot of people underestimate how long tournaments run at LAN parties, especially ones of this scale. With the tournaments running back-to-back and not concurrently, I can see 4 tourneys being a comfortable number for them to do.  While it would probably be possible to do 5, with 3 tourneys on day 1, I think they just wanted to avoid some of the stress of running a tighter schedule.

However, Renegade has mentioned here that unofficial tournaments are welcome and encouraged, so if anyone would like to take it upon themselves to host a Hearthstone or other game tournament, NeXus will accomodate however they can.

Personally I think it would have been nice to see Hearthstone make the cut to break up the FPS monotony, but I understand there are a lot of FPS fans at these LANs.

Hearthstone
League of Legends
Team Fortress 2


I'm on board for Goldeneye Source and an extremely fun MOBA-esque airhockey game that most have likely never played, Arena Cyber Evolution (ACE), but I doubt either would get enough votes unless one was included as a wildcard game. Both are great pick-up-and-play LAN games.

When you say Mario Kart 8 is at 12:30 PM do you mean 12:30 AM, just after midnight?
11  Past LAN Archive / NeXus LAN 14 - Tournaments / Re: NeXus LAN 14 Tournament suggestions on: August 02, 2014, 10:46:03 PM
Hearthstone
League of Legends
Team Fortress 2


Also would be really cool to have a Minecraft survival challenge. Something like the first person/team to accomplish a certain objective in survival mode on a private server wins. Not sure what the best win condition would be though. Killing the Ender Dragon comes to mind, though this typically takes several hours and I'm thinking we're looking for something that can be done in about an hour or less. First person to find a diamond seems trivial and not much fun. I'm thinking something in the Nether would be a happy medium, like the first person to destroy a blaze camp. Or perhaps something that doesn't require getting a diamond at all would be more fair, like hitting a certain level. Would anyone else be interested in something like this?

I love this game, and I'm pretty good at it. I've played it at a few LANs last year and I'm usually the one trying to round up people to try it. Tongue (http://www.nexuslan.org/forums/index.php?topic=1863.0)

It looks like we have a pretty good handful of people who are down to play, If we can get 8-12 players we could even operate multiple bridges co-op or versus.

Will wifi be a connection option for people who do not already have a cable of adequate length?
