Intel LANFest is coming up in a few weeks. If you’re in the Portland area or want to travel, it’s shaping up to be a really fun LAN party. We’re expecting 150-200 gamers, lots of door prizes, contests and giveaways. Not to mention it’s hosted on the Intel campus, which is just cool.
I’ve heard some good things about LANfest, still have yet to go to one. RIP me though, registration for group seating just ended 15 minutes ago. I might still consider going. It’s been a minute since I’ve been to a LAN.
Man, they’re doing their event SUPER close to PDXLAN’s. I wonder who made that call first.
If you just want to stop by and see what it’s about, no ticket required! The ticket is for an entry to the raffles and a table to setup your computer.
Visitors are welcome and encouraged. If you like what you see, and tickets are still available, you can purchase at the door. Be aware, these tend to sell out.
All kinds of folks come to these events. Some people show up and aggressively enter every tournament to pwn the world. Others show up and play single player games all weekend. There are some people who only show up for a few hours and others who fall asleep at their keyboard after 40 hours of intense Minecrafting.
The atmosphere is fun, inclusive and occasionally odoriferous.
