Would it be awkward if i attended a LAN with LDT as I don't have a rank on the servers and I feel as if alot of people don't know me?

 

I wasn't ranked at the start of epic.LAN, but I knew most people one way or another (through Teamspeak or Gmod) and I found it to be amazing although I did not camp there, I couldn't get drunk, I was only a Spectator and had to go for an hour long walk through industrial estates and council estates at 8:30 in the morning, I would gladly do that all again and more for just an hour there. Definitely Going to Epic.14 but I still need to get the money from the back of the sofa to get the money for Gio.

 

P.S: I was surprised that although I was the youngest,I was one of the tallest.

Double P.S: Sorry if this is a badly formatted / worded post, 1st time posting in a few months.

Tbh i didnt know many people when i went, and some people genuinely disliked me at first. It was a little awkward at the start but after a few hours it was amazing, one of the best experiences ive ever had, im definitely going again in february ^^

I also should be able to go but I'm waiting until I start university (if I get in) to see how stable things are before I start spending money. :P

Hopefully next time we can fit in a bit of a pub crawl (unless someone's underage of course, in which case someone play me at squash!)

I got one question for you guys. 

 

How much money should I bring with me (pounds) to survive the 4 days at epic.lan financially?

This is my first time going so I got no clue how much to bring with me.

Last time I survived on about £60, that was food, drinks and alcohol and most of it was just crap really.

 

It really depends on how well you want to eat and if you plan on buying drinks at the bar.

I'm going to bring some food and water with me from NL.

Should be a lot cheaper and it will be products I know. Buying stuff in the british supermarkets can be a challenge when you're looking for specific things while all you see are weird unknown brands all over the place.

Before this gets out of hand im gunna say something xD

 

You CANNOT judge ur experience of LAN on just one go, especially when the internet was that crap, its is never that slow, Winbar said at the end it was an ISP issue that they had no control over. The alcohol policy is KCC's issue and has something to do with licencing so it is also out of Epic.LAN hands, just drink outside the event xD. BENQ... yh well.... free stickers i guess?

 

Please dont feel that just because of some bad internet that it is a bad event, ask the people who went in July, it was awesome meeting new people again, and finding out Valikai lives 15 mins from me o.0 cuz YOLO....

 

I hope this hasnt turned u away from it cuz it is a great event :/

 

Hope to see some of you in July :)

I agree that the poor event hosting, whether it was their fault or not*, didn't really crap on the entire event all that much. Being woken up the first night caused me more discomfort than having shitty internet, for instance.

*I really do think it is. Most problems just appeared to be poor networking.

 

 

However, Mole, the idea of Epic.LAN is to serve as LDT's second annual meetup.
Since the February edition is always farthest away from Campzone, we'll only really be going full scale to the February event.

Going multiple times a year spreads out the attendance of people and makes each individual one less epic.

 

We're going to stick to the February edition as our main Epic.LAN event.

It's not so much epic.lan being shit, but I'd rather go to a lan event that not only has stable internet, but fast internet. An event that I can openly drink my own alcohol and have more space for myself, in story short, epiclan isn't for me.

NEWS FLASH: EPIC THIRTEEN ALSO HAD TONS OF INTERNET ISSUES

After being disappointed twice, I have no faith at all in them setting up a network that is capable of playing turn based games over LAN.

 

EDIT BY GIO: Please psy, don't play this card.

<removed this part>

 

 Winbar said at the end it was an ISP issue that they had no control over

Solutions:

-Redundancy. 

-Better communication.

-Pick a better ISP.

-Getting 75% packet loss and 2000ms ping WITHIN THE NETWORK has nothing to do with the ISP. We couldn't even play local LAN.

 

Campzone lays fibre to a field in the middle of fucking nowhere. They have three times more people at the same time than epic, yet I get speeds up to 600mbits to my own PC.

 

When we complained about everything all they could do is be sorry and explain how it was out of their control and how hard they were working on it, as if their efforts should make us grateful. I'm not grateful for any efforts they make, even if they would actually fix it because I PAID MONEY FOR THIS SERVICE WHICH IM NOT GETTING.

Working their asses off to get it fixed isn't anywhere near a favour, it's me going to stab them in the eye all day if they don't.

 

 The alcohol policy is KCC's issue and has something to do with licencing so it is also out of Epic.LAN hands, just drink outside the event xD. 

Pick a better venue. I don't feel like flying abroad just to feel like a 15 year old trying to drink.

 

 just because of some bad internet that it is a bad event

How about we spent 5 fucking hours to play one laggy LAN-match of the Dota2 tournament after which we finally got into a second one and got dropped halfway. We got so fed up and frustrated that we abandoned the tournament.

Sure I agree that all of those things would be better, Yagwog.

I'm sick and tired of people whining without suggesting an alternative.

 

Insomniac? Same problem with the alcohol and it's way more competition oriented. (No fun allowed)
Most places will have the alcohol problem, I don't think I've ever been to a LAN with an uptime of good internet for more than 98%.
Meaning, every LAN ever is susceptible to internet fuckyness. 

 

Epic.LAN has better bathroom facilities than any other LAN I've been to.

Epic.LAN has better sleeping accommodations than any other LAN I've been to.

Epic.LAN's date and location in England seems absolutely optimal for what we need.

 

If there actually is a better alternative, I'll gladly ditch Epic.LAN for it. 

I highly doubt that actually exists though.
