We'll be deciding on the tournaments soon, so if you have any other ideas for tournaments, let's hear 'em!

yeah that's the thing... Back in the days when I used to drink I preferred a beer that was a bit crunchy, something that would stick to my sides a bit. I could drink buds until the sun came up and not feel much but sore from all the circulation down stairs.

 Nowadays I drink 2 zima's and I'm handing my keys over...  Shocked

Hate growing up...   Tongue

a bunch of my friends (and me) want to go if there is a cs:s tourney.. most lans have that as the main event

CS is too old of a game to attract sponsorships which is probably one reason why lans that still host CS tourneys charge entry fees which is something we will not do.   But  come and enjoy all the tournaments... we are a 100% completely fun LAN and not just based on tournaments.  Also you are more than welcome to host an unofficial CS tourney as long as it is not run at the same time as one of our sponsored pc tourneys.

As always all team based tournaments will have teams picked randomly by skill level.  This has made it so everyone has a fun and a fair and equal chance of winning.  It has worked out great at every one of our LANS.

oh i agree but i was talking about cs:s, not cs.

and typically lans get sponsored solely because cs:s IS the main tournament, since it's the most widely played game in the US, so it will naturally attract the most lan attendees ;-)

I'm not sure what planet your on. The cod series numbers are far above cs or cs:s. Name any large lan that is based on cs:s? Not LanWar, Quakecon or the large European lans. Some of these may have a tourney based on it but its not whats attracting players on the average.

Thats the problem, Average players, and to be honest if they would (doubtful) have a counter strike tournament with money prize it would attract quite a few people, Alot more people than it would a call of duty tournament of any kind.

this is why i left this alone, it will never happen (im talking counter strike not cod)

Yep you are correct, we will not have any money or any type of competitive based tournaments.  We are a fun LAN and that is one quick way for a regular LAN party like this to cease to exist.  I've found out going to LANS over the many years, that have competitive tourneys, would have quite a bit of players that would only come for the tourney then leave and then the same clan would come back and win at the next.  This gave the LAN a bad rep. This will not occur here.  We make it so that everyone reguardless of their skill level has an equal chance of winning with their randomly picked team.  Which in turns keeps them interested in returning for the next LAN.
