Default LAN party in Chicago, IL - Nov 6, 2004

Any Chicagoans that want to have a little LANning action on November 6, 2004 can come join us for our sixth party at the Selfrealiance Credit Union on Chicago Ave. We have 30 seats open and have already filled 4 in two days. Its a BYOC lan and is quite dirt cheap for what you get. For only $15, you get 10 hours of gaming, a free BFG tech shirt, a Sapphire metal CD case, free pizza for lunch, and drinks/snacks all throughout the day.

We will be having tweo tournaments. One is a 5v5 CTF on UT 2004 and another is Desert Combat .8 All Out War (two large teams and top player after 3 maps wins.) We also have a lot of swag and prizes to give away from a number of companies. We are a small LAN compared to the others, but we provide a great day of gaming according to everyone who has been coming to our parties from day one.

You can visit www.xlangaming.com for all the info on how to register, or you can email me at xlanstaff AT comcast.net directly with a first and last name in order to register. You can pay your $15 via PayPal or at the door before the party.

Hope to see some people from this board come.

You almost had me there until Desert Combat. But good luck with the party anyway.

Hehe, when I expanded the map I noticed that as well. I'd rather not transport thousands of dollars worth of computer hardware to that neighborhood.

With all the gentrification going on, you have the projects on one side of the street and $1million dollar condos on the other... Although I'm not exactly sure where this is being held, I highly doubt it's smack dab in the bad corner of the neighborhood. I'd check it out, but the games don't really interest me: I don't play CTF in ut2004 and don't even know what desert combat is... maybe next time.

Desert Combat is a mod for Battlefield 1942. I played it a bit at a small BFG Tech event, and I really didn't like it at all. I stuck to regular old UT2004 deathmatch and fared quite well considering I hadn't playing against any humans in almost a year.

no way i'd bring my stuff over there. I mean the entire city of chicago is basically a giant ghetto...but some parts are worse than others...this part being one of those that are worse.
