I am looking forward to this years VulcLAN. (Second person registered. Can you tell?)
It is always fun to get together and test my skills against all my comrades. Hey I think I learned how to play Call of Duty a little bit better. The secret is my Psyko Audio 5.1 headset that I won last year! Hearing is half the battle.
The energy Zeus puts into the VulcLAN event is amazing. Glad to see this year Zeus you are getting a little bit of time for shuteye.

Hey everybody, looking forward to seeing all of you again!!! Had alot of fun playing Left for Dead at a small lan party in town here.  Hopefully will be some players there that play that game, Jockey'n somebody away is a blast.

Zeus agreed, do appreciate all the excellent effort you put into the event, has been a fun time year after year.

Thanks BoneRak and 4u2nvme.  In order to make it more fun for me, please stand still long enough so that I can headshot you with a 'nade launcher!  That would be good times...good times...

Setup is Saturday at 3:00 or Friday at 3:00, I read somewhere that's when you are able to get the gym? As for head shots, I'm a pretty easy target, if you can't get a head shot or two on me there is something wrong with your game ; :D

Should I try to set up a proxy server, or will it be as locked down this year?
Title: Re: VulcLAN Announced and Official!!
Post by: Zeus on February 03, 2010, 11:03:44 AM
It will probably be the same as last year, so if you want to setup a proxy that would rock.  Also, setup is Thursday at 3:30 - so we'll have all day Friday/Saturday to frag it up.

I'm curious, is there any interest for a TF2 tournament? maybe 4v4 or something similar to that? I know one of my friends has a TF2 server and would probably be willing to set it up for Vulclan....
Title: Re: VulcLAN Announced and Official!!
Post by: Zeus on February 04, 2010, 10:07:26 AM
I'm sure that if he brings it - we will play.  Not sure about a sponsored tournament, but we can probably dig up some prizes....

Looking forward to it boys.  Not sure if I'll be able to game during the workday on Friday, but I'll come Thursday and set up at the very least so I'll be ready to go Friday after work.  Hopefully there's some good SupCom action as per usual.  Thanks for the extra day Zeus.  Good stuff.
Title: Re: VulcLAN Announced and Official!!
Post by: 4u2nvme on February 07, 2010, 12:10:26 AM
I'll play some Supcom with ya Wildcard even though I'm a bit rusty.  There should be a few players there that will play a couple games of it. 
Title: Re: VulcLAN Announced and Official!!

So is the thursday a play day or no, im just been reading all the posts and havent been able to come up with weather or not it is, and also what time should i be there on thursday?
Title: Re: VulcLAN Announced and Official!!
Post by: Zeus on February 14, 2010, 01:19:05 PM
Thursday play should start around 7:30 pm as we don't get the venue until 3:30.  Once we get the venue opened, we'll do a mad scramble to get the network and power setup.  It should be open to the public around 6:30 - 7:00pm

We should have a tournament for people who haven't played since the last LAN party, at least then I'd have a chance to win something

Post by: BoneRak on February 15, 2010, 11:29:08 PM
That sounds like a good adea. I don't think I played a single game of UT...1999 since the last lanparty... in October..
Count me in!  ;D

Title: Re: VulcLAN Announced and Official!!
Post by: Seeker on February 19, 2010, 07:22:45 PM
I think that we should just give out the prizes...We know who will win the good ones.....;)  No do I still have UT ?? wait yes...maybe

Ummm if Bonerak plays any UT game of any sort, he's always at top form, and guranteed a win and first place, the tournament that is UT related should be called the
BONEYARD
because all who enter it will end up a picked over rack of bones, all shot up, since its a given he's got it!  O0, only question is, what is the prize your taking home this year Eldon?  :D

Purchased it tonight through steam.  I'll be there with bells on.

Looking forward to some SS action, and in VulcLAN tradition I'll probably install in the night before so that I can take full advantage of my Beginners luck
Title: Re: VulcLAN Announced and Official!!
Post by: Wildcard on February 25, 2010, 11:02:06 PM
I'm on board with SS, however I feel I must point out that SS2 is a far superior game, so hopefully that is what everyone is referring to.   "Are You Serious??"
Title: Re: VulcLAN Announced and Official!!
Post by: epithanatios on February 26, 2010, 03:20:16 PM
@zeus, when you say you bought it through steam, means you bought the HD version of the original? I don't think that will be compatible with the original original lol  :)
Title: Re: VulcLAN Announced and Official!!
Post by: Zeus on February 26, 2010, 05:39:28 PM
Shut up Epi..

That is all.  Just kidding buddy.

Not quite.  I realize that it may not be compatible but at least I'll be able to practice a bit.

Epi and I are practicing up for the UT3 tourny,  are we doing 2v2?  TAM? 

I put in my vote for TF2 as an alternate game.  I'm not very good at it but I think it's pretty fun.

Sure, me and Bonerak accept your challenge
Title: Re: VulcLAN Announced and Official!!
Post by: BoneRak on March 09, 2010, 07:59:16 AM
Last night I played some Unreal Tournament 3 TAM now known as Battle Team Arena (BTA).
It gave me goosebumps. I better get my server updated just in case it's needed.

That sounds great Fujitsu. Have you been practicing your moving shockcombo's on Facing Worlds?
You haven't? Man, we could have been something  :smitten: now they will never know.

You haven't? Man, we could have been something  :smitten: now they will never know.

I've been training like a mad man, here are a few of the ways that I am going to become the best teammate ever for "Team Bonerak"

Strict Diet: Only Red Bull and Subway in preparation.

Dedication: I get up by 11am every day so I can get a full day of training in, I've also shortened my afternoon naps from 3 hours all the way down to 1:45 to allow for more training.

More Dedication: I spend hours on servers where new players are and kill them time after time and have mastered the art of smack talk while doing it. I can now appropriately use the terms "N00b5", "P0wn", "BOOM Headshot", and "Hax0rs" and regularly slip numbers into words where there sh0uld be v0w3ls...

Equipment: I've ordered an original Boomslang mouse off ebay. I've also acquired a large quantity of isopropyl to keep the boomslang's ball nice and clean for opimal fragging.

Focus: I've memorized all the maps from every unreal game ever made, I could play them blindfolded now (and sometimes I do just for fun).

Appearances: I've gained 45 pounds and now only wear track pants to give myself more of a intimidating appearance in order to scare the competition. I have also ordered a nice wolf shirt off ebay to go with those track pants so I don't clash.


All your going to be hearing from my computer is "Headshot" and "MONSTER KILL" this year at VulcLAN. That is why you (Bonerak) need me on your team.

......Sure and all I'm doing is showing up... we picking partners already?? I guess I'll have to install UT3 again and see if any updates are needed... Will there be internet access?? I might be able to win a gold in internet hearts or spades ;)  I'm still hoping to make it on that weekend..   ???

Hey just want to know if it was intentionally planned over the Easter week-end?  I know Good Friday is a day off of work, but its going to to be a no-go with the family.

Yes we know its Easter Weekend, however due to venue availability it was unfortunately our only choice for a weekend and due to our large power requirements we weren't able to go elsewhere. Hopefully for next year we can avoid having it on Easter weekend again.

Hmmm, too bad. I know myself and some other guys down here in Lethbridge simply cannot make it over Easter week-end. Oh well next year I guess.

Alright folks, VulcaLAN is approaching fast and here is the tentative schedule of festivities:

Thursday: 7pm - Doors officially open, setup starts, gaming will be a free-for-all format for the evening until doors close at 2am.

Friday: Doors open at 10am for the first day of gaming, UT3 Tournament will begin at 7pm. Gaming will go until 2am when the doors close.

Saturday: Doors open at 10am, COD4 Tourney will being at 1pm and will run until the evening. Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 tourney will start at 8pm (assuming we are able to get it to work, if not, a different tourney will be scheduled). Doors close at 2am.

Sunday: Doors re-open at 10am, final prizes and closing will happen at 12pm (Noon), cleanup will follow the closing draws.


Quick Notes:

Please remember to bring a powerbar for your system, we will not have any extras for people and you will only be assigned 1 plug per person so you need a power bar!!!!!

If you have an extra extension cord please bring it, we can always use more cords so bring an extra if you can.

No speakers allowed for obvious reasons, its loud enough with 50 people in a room, we don't need speakers on top of that (bring headphones!)

Bring a mic, we will have teamspeak servers available so you can talk with your team if you are not sitting by them.

Bring your own food/drinks, we will not have a concession this year due to the low interest last year, so bring enough to last you the weekend!

Any players 14-years old and younger must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian at all times.

Players under the age of 18 will be required to leave at 12:00am (midnight).

Please make sure you've updated your games/computer, internet will be limited so you might not be able to do your downloading at the LAN party, you've been warned!





Thats about it for now, please let us know if you have any other questions
