GhettoLan

Anyone ever been? I went to GLP 23 and it was a blast. It is usually at the Denton Civic Center (where it has been for the past couple years). GLP 25 is comming up in mid-October. They have a nice variety of games and even cater to the cosole guys. The server is a dual Xeon that pinged in the mid-high teens last time with 200 players online. They also do a CS 1.6 tourney with a $1000 purse, $10 gets you in the tourney, otherwise $15 is the admission and $5 for half of a pizza. You guys should definitely check it out, its more oldschool-ish than all of the other over-commercialized LANs.

some people are like slinkies; they're completely useless, but still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

ghetto's are cool, just a looot of cs, so i hope you like that game. if your looking for a lan you might also want to check out www.na-is.com same grassrotts feel, but a lot smaller (50 man cap) they do random raffles and swag, but its maingly about gaming with friends over money or prizes and games change up pretty frequently, although css and bf2 can be seen just about every time

Turns out Creative Labs will be attending the event, giving out one of their new X-Fi cards and other goodies. In addition to that, they will have a 1v1 Q4 tourney with a pretty damn nice prize

the one i went to with you guys was ghetto lan 8...damn that was a long time ago. pretty neat little thing they got going, we had a major discrepancy in a cs tourny match that was handled unfairly though....some fucking server malfunction bullshit.
