  6. epic28 SOLD OUT

    Less than one year after we expanded our events in to the Kettering Conference Centre Arena, we've sold out of BYOC tickets for epic28! We still have spectator tickets left and a number of Turn Up and Play (TUP) tickets for the Battalion 1944 tournament only.  A sellout for us, really does mean a sellout, we will not be able to increase the number of spaces available this close to the event as all of our logistics are in place.  That means the only way of getting a BYOC ticket at this point is through the waiting list.  Joining the Waiting List We will work through the waiting list in the following priorities: People wishing to join existing teams/groups who have part paid and need to finish their lineups Individual teams/participants who do not already have groups attending Waiting list tickets only become available if people cancel their spaces.  If you wish to join the waiting list, make sure you already have an epic.LAN account and then create a support ticket explaining whether you are on your own or part of a team or group, if you are part of a team, let us know which one! Make sure your team has signed up to the tournament website if you are taking part in the esports tournaments as it helps us to prioritise the waiting list accordingly.  Check your emails regularly once you are on the waiting list. If a slot becomes available you will be emailed with instructions and a time by which you need to claim the space (usually 24h), if you don't respond on time, the place will be offered to the next person on the list. If you don't respond to multiple offers, you will drop off the waiting list.   Cancelling Your Ticket Normal cancellation policy applies, as we are beyond the cutoff date for refunds, we can only refund your ticket if we are able to resell your ticket to a member of the waiting list.  Cancellations will be refunded, minus the £10 admin fee, back to the original account used for payment.  Transfers Tickets are non-transferrable unless you have either bought multiple tickets (in which case the first ticket is yours and the additional tickets need to be allocated to your other players). Alternatively you can buy or upgrade to a flex ticket which can be transferred. If you did not buy a flex ticket originally, you can upgrade by going to your booking and adding the Flex Ticket Upgrade service to your account. Once you've done so, create a support ticket letting us know who you wish to transfer the ticket to.  Seating We will try as much as possible to help groups sit together, but with a full event, it is very difficult to move people around as every move has a knock-on effect on other groups. We will try where possible to rearrange people to get groups sat together, but we cannot guarantee that those who have booked last will get to sit together. In the mean time, we would advise you to pick seats as close as possible together. 
  7. epic.LAN 2020

    Grab your diaries, put the holiday requests in, it's the epic.LAN 2020 dates! epic29 - Thursday 20 - Sunday 23 February epic30 - Thursday 2 - Sunday 5 July epic31 - Thursday 8 - Sunday 11 October   February - Pretty much the same as last year, making sure we avoid valentine's weekend as apparently that's an issue! Arena event. July - Later than usual, June was hurting us because of exam season so we've bumped it back a couple of weeks, but still avoiding full on summer holiday period because of people going on real holidays. Unsure as to whether this will be Arena or smaller event, will decide next few weeks. October - Again, about the same as weekend as this year, it seems to work so why change it. Pretty sure it will be arena event based on current October numbers.
  8. That cat's finally out of the bag, Battalion 1944 will be coming to epic28 with a huge £15k tournament thanks to a partnership between Bulkhead, The Plays and Chillblast.  Participants around the world will be able to take part in the massive tournament either on a BYOC or Turn Up & Play basis with 40 Chillbast PCs available for Battalion 1944 players only.  If you're taking part in the tournament, make sure you select the specific Battalion 1944 BYOC or TUP ticket types when you book for epic28.   Aaron Baker, Community Manager at Bulkhead explains, "For us at Bulkhead and many of those within Battalion's competitive scene, epic.LAN has been a right of passage providing an affordable and more community-driven event within the UK - an ethos we too believe in. Taking your first steps at a grass roots level should be open to all and with the help from our friends at Chillblast (who have kindly provided 40 turn up and play machines) that idea has become a reality. Up to as many of 32 teams will face off at the Kettering Conference Centre for their share of up to £15,000 on October 10th - 13th." Jon Winkle, epic.LAN Managing Director added,  "Everyone at epic.LAN is really excited about adding in Battalion 1944 to our October lineup and bringing some classic FPS communities to our events. There's been a huge amount of hype about the game over recent months from our existing community and new players, so we're honoured to have been selected to host this grass roots tournament by the team at Bulkhead and to show off the epic.LAN experience to the Battalion 1944 community. Huge thanks to Bulkhead, The Plays and Chillblast for making the tournament happen, now let's see the community step up to make it an amazing tournament to watch!"   Tickets are available now for the epic28 Battalion 1944 Tournament at www.epiclan.co.uk/epic28.   Prize Triggers 8 Teams - £6,000 12 Teams - £8,000 16 Teams - £12,000 32 Teams - £15,000

  13. Farewell to the epic.FORUMS

    I'll take Beej & Smithy's responses as indicative of the community... and will get away with the fact that I forgot to lock one of the last admin posts I'll ever post on here...

    Farewell old friend its been fun
  16. Farewell to the epic.FORUMS

    It’s time to bid farewell to the epic.FORUMS, as we will be putting them into read only mode on Friday 14th July. They’ve served epic.LAN well for many years, being a place where we could communicate, share content and keep up to date on everything epic related, and have a chat about our favourite TV shows, and play a few games as well. We’re all using other methods to communicate now, so we’re going to put the interaction part that was on the forums into Discord. This will go into our current layout, although we’ll occasionally create specific (and sometimes temporary) channels when we’re looking for feedback on certain things, such as event-specific defrag plans, through to time-limited events info. We’d like to make sure you’re all following us on twitter at twitter.com/epiclan and also remind you to sign up to discord at discord.gg/epiclan – these will be the primary ways of getting in touch with us before, during and after events. I’m going to be sharing some stats and stuff from the forums on twitter and discord over the next few days …oh, and for those of you who were looking to get the last word on ‘last post wins’ – we’re announcing this as Kameo, for his June 29th post. Anything after this announcement doesn’t count, sadly, since that would be cheating. Although Dunceantix would like you to know that, as the server demigod, he could always have had the last word. Just saying. The forums will remain in archive mode for the next few months, and we’re also making sure that all galleries and photos move across to flickr. Look for new and interesting developments that will reward and encourage communication on Discord in future (we’re playing with some interesting stuff) and make sure you all keep in touch! Cheers, love! Jamie ‘reech’ Walker Community Manager

  21. Rocket League Tournament

    Gutted to have missed Epic 27. Seemed like a strong lineup for the RL tournament again. Super excited as we currently have 8 players coming to October but we need one more player. If anyone fancies joining one of our teams, please let me know. iCoN
  22. The Good, The Bad, and The Wiggly

    Good 1. I got to play games this one. 2. Network and download issues non existent. 3. Good range of drinks. 4. security and staff are so chill it really makes the events like a break for me. 5. The young lad on security during the day was such a sweet young man. 6. KCC staff keeping the palace really tidy. Bad and wiggly 1. The conference centre. it's falling to bits from the inside out. Toilets stink all the time. Regardless of the how much air fragrance gets pushed out. 2. The conference centre. The heat in Fairisle must have been unbearable, as much of it was in staging room as well. I heard they weren't working properly in there and during the pub quiz I had to take my costume off. 3. The conference centre. The storm drains not working and much of the roof run off ended up flooding out the campsite. This this pissed me off the most. Because the storm drains have been doing this every event for years now and it's never been rectified. 4. Campsite. As my previous post the storm drains flooded the campsite. The campers have had 3 rough events in a row and the thin campsite was probably a good representation of the fact. We were fortunate for a decent ground sheet but I know others were not. 5. Pub quiz was difficult to hear. I know haden was pushing the new system to the max. 6.that God damn lighting rig with those f*cking led lights shining into the crowd. They were blinding. It's making me angry just thinking about them. 7. I didn't really know when anything was going off tbh, this maybe down to my lack of engagement though.
  23. The Good, The Bad, and The Wiggly

    The Good: Portland was the best room to be in as always. Casual enough to not be hearing NICE or what I can only assume is some 13 year olds balls being caught in a vice judging by the screaming in Fair Isle. Not so casual that you can't hear your own thoughts due to some shitty music being played out of speakers right next to your head. Temperature was cold, which is way better than being roasted alive in the other rooms. Smash tournament. I hadn't played it in about 3 months but it was a pleasure to get my rusty self bodied in the semi finals. Hope you enjoyed your prizes (not you 2nd place). Those buckets better have been empty by the end of the day. Back to back beer pong champ. Crushing Penors confidence and watching him go into shutdown. DIGNITY, DIGNITYYYYYYYYYY. Somehow winning the first round of the PUBG tournament despite being incredibly hungover and again not having played the game in months. Staff was incredibly helpful. I had network issues throughout the event and the help to sort it out was great. @Beej was best boi and wins MVP this lan. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SUkgixdMLbU Winding up @gunmens on the Thursday evening. Can I see your wristbands please? Lots of Mordhau Thursday night dinner. Enjoying the classic Greek dish 'Spaghetti and Meatballs'. Pizza time Archery and the Native Americlan. HOW. @Ashman KOing himself within 5 minutes of showing up to LAN. The Bad: Pub quiz. Could barely hear it at the back of the hall. Need some more speakers at the back or in the middle. Didn't help that the table next to us were broadcasting their conversation for all to hear. Phone watch was pretty lacking as well, saw a few teams on their phones throughout the quiz. Bar staff. Actually got asked by one of them what barrel the citra was in. The Wiggly: @Ashmans eye. My network issues I had throughout. Someone in Lakeside had the same IP address as me. The weather. The giant smoke signal that was sent out because of the weather. Nothing caught fire, and that was the issue. Penors disgust of anything Tunnocks.
  24. Will there be Wreckfest?

    Its our first time running it. We wanted to keep it vanila. We had a lot of fun. Deffo thinking next event. Will look into what more we can do with it.
  25. Will there be Wreckfest?

    just been playing this and it was a bit temperamental.
  26. First!

  27. Will there be Wreckfest?

    Just a quick one, if there is going to be wreckfest, I would suggest for those that want/have it, look at using some mods before hand - to level the playing field The one I would recommend is "Free Market" - bit of a bugger to get working, but once working, you can buy every car in the game for free, then also ALL upgrades (its a long process of one item at a time) - but you can set up the cars you want to use - everything is FREE until the mod is deactivated. or, there is always the option to use the stock vehicles on "hire" at the start of each event - so you can use Class A vehicles in a Class A race etc without needing to unlock them... when on server, select vehicle, and scroll to the right there are more tracks available, but these mean everyone on the server would need the same mod, so easier to just use the stock maps... it is cheating, and negates natural progress once completed, just deactivate the mod, everything remains, and shouldn't interfere with online races (tried and tested)
  28. First!

    Here comes Lasty! late to the party!
