Results and Reviews
Updated results from Round 1 attached. Click the picture to see the scores. No scores were recorded from Far Cry due to Screen Dump problems. This should be rectified by Round 2.
As previously advised the scoring system is as follows:
Players receive 1 point for finishing last, 2 points for second last, 3 points for third last, etc.
The best 4 scores in each style of game (shooter, racer, strategy) will count towards the end of year total. Which means they will have 12 scores added together and the highest total in November will win.
In future, if we have too many for one server of a game, we will organise a second server and if possible even up the numbers and the standard.
Team scores were the results of the Far Cry Maps played.
Jing & MCSkinky didn't play racing or strategy, so they didn't record any scores for the night. Total attendance 19.
V8 had 11 players
Powerslide had 3
Dota had 9
Zero Hour had 3
Settlers of Catan had 3
We didn't run Top Gun at the first LAN but we will from Round 2 on.
You need to vote on which game we play for 2006 as the Top Gun Game.
The 30 Hour LAN was huge.
Lots of people, lots of gaming and lots of food.
In addition the airconditioned hall was a real asset meaning there were no stinky bodies lying around like last year!
Having the stage set up with the pool table and couches meant people could take breaks from their PC's and play some pool (some excellent games of kelly pooly were played), poker, watch TV and sleep on the couches.
Rochie and N3ur0 were the only ones to stay awake the whole 30 hours with MirkPigsy coming very close - just falling asleep in the last hour or so.
LAN Games played included Warcraft DOTA and Battleships, Far Cry, V8 Supercars 2, CounterStrike, Settlers, Wolfenstein ET and more.
Disappointing was the efforts to get Flatout going. It is an excellent game but seems to have real problems with the network. Doesn't look like we can play that this year.
No one was interested in playing Generals so thats probably going to get scrubbed also.
The stand out winners were DOTA and Far Cry. Penguin Boy supplied some excellent new maps - thanks PB!. It seems the Assault Maps are the most preferred with some insane FFA sessions (particulalry on Surf) happening.
