Post Catacombz 19.0 - April 12-13, 2014 - Eldorado, IL
Hey guys,

It's been a long time since I've posted here, and I'm not sure if these forums are very active these days or not. I just wanted to pass along word that my group is hosting our next LAN on April 12-13 in Eldorado, IL. This will be a 31 hour, 100-seat event, and your group is more than welcome to attend.

Please feel free to check us out at Catacombz.com or facebook.com/Catacombz.

Later,

DeZ

Thanks for the heads up! We're not too active any more, but I still check daily out of habit. :rolleyes:

Me too. I don't think we will be able to make it but thanks for posting. Nice to have to company. Won't you come in? Sit a spell. We don't get many visitors anymore. Would you like some Werther's originals hard candy?

Haha! No worries guys. If anything changes for you and you get the itch to start LAN gaming again, keep us in mind!

I was just looking at your photos from your last LAN and it looks like a lot of fun. It is 3.5 hours away though. Quite a jaunt.

I haven't been to a nice LAN in years. I hate to sound like an old man but what are people even playing nowadays? Some of the LANdemonium guys get together almost once a year for some gamin' but is usually only about 5-6 of us.

I know how you feel about the driving. I used to live in the area, but have since moved away. It's a 3hr drive for me each time as well.

We try to play a wide variety of games. I've got a decent list going at http://catacombz.com/games-played/, but there are a couple on there that are more popular than others. We're sure to see a lot of CoD4, CS:GO, and LoL played at the event. Quite possibly some Battlefield 2 as well. One of our admins has config'd a 64-player server complete with bots to fill the empties. Should be a blast. Other than that, should see a fair amount of Primal Carnage, Armagetron, TF2, and Chivalry as well. There will be plenty more played, but those are the most popular.

We've been hosting official events since 2002 down here, but this is our first 100 seat event. All previous have been around 50-60 people. We're just hoping to fill it up...so if you come, bring 5-10 friends as well! :) I should also mention that we're likely to have 2-3 tournaments, along with some very nice prize giveaways from our sponsors.

nodnarb, that's awesome! A lot has definitely changed since those first events, but it's great seeing former attendees out there!

Btw... I keep mine too :)

Ha ha! Yes, that's it :-). I still have that tower. The paint job was done at Lanwar in Louisville, KY.

Just a final word that we have 32 seats still open for this event this weekend (69 signed up so far). We've got 3 tournaments lined up (CoD4, LoL, CS:GO) and tons of great sponsor donations. Registration will be closing at 12pm CST on Thursday.
