GamOnLive LAN - Update!

GamOnLive LAN
17th, 18th, 19th February
On DoDFrance, news written by the head-admin, Grenouille, triggered a reaction from the admins of the GamOnLive LAN. Indeed, the community was wondering if the event would actually take place or not, and they exposed their doubts. All quiet on the western front? Not really.

Grenouille had a talk with Tony who finally helped him to meet the organization. They directly talked about the biggest issue so far: communication. Even though the admins admitted that this wasnt perfect, they said that they decided not to announce anything before they were sure of it. Anyway, Tony concedes that in spite of some experience in LAN organization, it is the first time that they try to make such a huge event happen, and therefore they still have a lot of things to improve. Theyre working a lot on the administrative side and thus didnt validate all the rest yet. But here is the relevant info for the players.

First of all, the food and drinks, the players core-business! GamOnLive wants to keep a low price for food in order to prevent a too expensive week-end for the players. They will propose a classic menu with sandwiches, hot-dogs or toasted ham and cheese sandwiches. Drinks will of course be available for around 1. Moreover, the staff is still working on other possibilities, like French fries (but this may not be easy regarding the fire security), pizzas delivered by a partner of the event, and, less probable though, a beer tap for those who would like to enjoy a beer (or whatever they consider as such in France)

About the organization, now. It is finally possible to understand which task will be handed by whom. Lan Evasion is an association that often works with OCI. Those to entities will be in charge of the network and will collaborate with Redline, who will host the servers. Redline is planning to have several back-up servers or hardware in order to fix problems that might occur. The hall will be equipped with SDSL, and the players should be able to play with an open Steam port and make the appropriate last minute updates if needed. Anyway, the staff will be prepared for the worst case scenario and will have a SteamLan version ready to use.

For further details, Mumble servers should be available for the players, so that we wont have to host our own Murmur. Good news: it will be possible to rent some hardware, mostly screens, and foreigners will have the priority. They also plan SourceTV servers and a webtv. Finally, they set up a team which will be in charge of the media cover of the event, with pictures and videos about the whole event. A special website will be created so that everything will be available to everyone, and so that they can post their own photographs from the LAN.

Unfortunately, the slots are still desperately empty, so its really time for the community to move its fat geeky ass and fill the spots in order to get an amazing tournament!

First choice, you can sleep like everybody do in regular lan parties, that is to say under your table.
Just bring your sleeping bag..
