He might not go, as they all shun on the death of PC gaming.

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.

I've pretty much vowed never to return to a mega lan party ever again.

I went to some huge one in Feb of like 2007 I think and it was only 350ish people and they had lag spikes galore, information on tourneys was non-existent, I promise you there were hackers in BF2, the CS:S tables would NOT SHUT UP...and I didn't win a single anything...not even a door prize.

Maybe if BC2 is going to be one of the BIG games there... BF2 was supposed to be one of the big games at the one I attended...by midnight it was 80% CS:S...I hate that game.

DFWstangs group maybe?

Quakecon is Legit I must say though.Never had problems with lag, although STEAM can be a bitch sometimes, I will also say that the NOC network guys kept up with 3000 gamers at the LAN. Its not 350. I have gone with my brothers making this a family event. Although If you dont mind sitting in the same lane or table as us tis fine. I wouldnt mind being on the same table with a bunch of guys that I know are from the same city. And Battlefield Bad company 2 should be the game of the year where everyone will probably be playing it.

Thanks for the invite man...I do appreciate it as I am the only real gamer really in my family. I think I might take you up on your offer.

Oh and does anyone know if we are allowed to set up a Jayco pop-up camper out in the parking lot? It has room for 6 people to sleep...so I don't mind offering a "crash" zone.

Lol, just checked the site and my buddy Clifton went and actually won some portion of it last year.

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land." Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said,"Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the Promised Land." Now Obama has stolen your shovel..., taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!
