    I still can't believe, watching this again, that I'm the one that swore the most in a small period of time... I'd have been sure that @DrPen0r would have beaten me to that...
  2. Le Mans 24

    We'd love to do this - but there are issues with us putting something on a public screen for sporting events.
  3. DDR pads

    That's the ones. I think it took about 3-4 weeks for delivery, but we did ask for the branded centre piece.
  4. EPIC board games

    I'll be demoing Keyforge on Saturday as well...
  5. Big Games for epic26

    Oh, there might be something in there...
  6. Fun Tournaments at epic26

    Let’s ring in the new year with Fun Tournaments for epic26! We’ve announced returning Fun Tournaments for: Beat Saber VR Hearthstone Player Unknown Battlegrounds …and we’ll be introducing Super Smash Bros Ultimate as a fun tournament as well! All four are now available for you to sign up to at https://tournaments.epiclan.co.uk/ We’re trying some different formats for most of the games; Beat Saber and Smash will feature some qualifying rounds on Friday, with the finals being played in the Arena on the Saturday. Likewise, PUBG will now feature multiple maps, with at least two being played on the Friday before the final on Saturday evening. As a result, there’ll be some changes to how we record scores, and to our rules; a general outline is available in the tournament site rules pages now, but we will add further structure to them before the event begins. In addition, participation and placement in the Fun Tournaments will also count towards the epicLAN Community Champion award! As ever, anyone can participate in the Fun Tournaments, but prize tournament players MUST be eliminated from their matches before they can join in with the fun tournaments. In addition, some of the fun tournaments may need to close signups before 10am on Friday so that we can group and balance the tournaments. We’ll let you know as we get closer to the event, but Papa Reech urges people who are not playing in prize tournaments to sign up for the tournaments NOW at https://tournaments.epiclan.co.uk/ If you need any help signing up, pop into http://discord.gg/epiclan and go to the #epic26-funtournaments channel. Oh… and these four fun tournaments? They may not be the only ones. Watch out for some news later in January as we’re working on some additional events for you!
  7. Big Games for epic26

    Make your way over to the Facebook group , take a look in the Discord channel #epic26-generalchat and keep an eye on Twitter where we'll let you know more about what we've got planned. It’s time to get those downloads queued up and get your computer in shipshape, ready for epic26 – to that end, here are the BIG GAMES that are going to be scheduled throughout the event. However, we’ve going to be trying something new as well, so make sure that you check out the bottom of the list and grab these LAN favourites as well, since you can never have too many games! In addition, our Lakeside Team will be setting up challenges here and there – and we will be shouting over to the Arena to grab our friends over there and involve them. PLUS (will it ever end with the surprises for epic26!) we’re introducing the epicLAN Community Champion Challenge. Every Big Game, Fun Tournament and some of the activities that you participate in will award points meaning that on Saturday Night, you could be crowned the first epicLAN Community Champion. Look out for more details as the event draws closer – and there is STILL more to announce… Big Games at epic26 Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds Counterstrike Source Fun Maps Live 4 Speed Garry’s Mod (TTT and others) Quiplash \ Jackbox Games Half Life: Death Match Gravity Gun Games Blur Genital Jousting (trust me on this one…) CounterStrike: Danger Zone Minecraft Hunger Games Team Fortress 2 Quake Champions Golf with Your Friends PLUS… Make sure you download some of these favourites for challenges over the event Left4Dead 2 Rainbow 6 Siege Euro Truck Sim 2 Armagetron Chivalry: Medieval Warfare Cryptic information update here You might end up with happy feet, because there's some other things that we're going to surprise people with.

  8. EPIC 26 Camping

    No - we definitely won't have INDOOR camping (two indoor sleeping rooms will be available as always, no tents!) - but we'll soon clarify what's happening outside.
  9. Epic 25 - The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

    Quick responses from me about Fun Tournaments and big Games... Sorry on this; my selection of tracks using GP was off; I'd used the one I intended to use last in the first place - and that took a long, long time to run. In addition, the time pressure for other events was a drag - I think it would be better doing MK on Friday rather than Saturday PLUS getting to grips with quick VS. races rather than GP should help things go smoother. Communication on the structure of the MK Tournament was also poor, resulting in people left to one side for too long, thinking they were coming back - I'll put that down to me faffing with the format to make it fit into the timeslot we had - apologies to those affected. Also - Unicorn did sign up properly, and somehow vanished from the list, resulting in her not competing which is something that really narked me off - it also upset FreddieW who is an excellent support for our admin side on FTs, and this is the first time that's ever happened. Unicorn was incredibly gracious when speaking to me the following day, but will be absolutely THRASHING the rest of you next time... Big Games are always a balancing act; we always ask what to put on, we get some suggestions - and then it's hot or cold as to how many people we get. We need to have a really good think about how we entice people to play in these, and there are some useful suggestions here that I can work on for next time. If something isn't working out, we should always try to drop something in (and it's really, really quick for us to do so, we've got images and layouts available) - for example, Blossy's Nippon Extravaganza thing was a drop-in that he sorted, and that worked very well. Cheers for the honest feedback - keep throwing it here AND in your surveys, it's the only way we can fix things...

    I'm *probably* in Portland upstairs, but will be darting around with a fairly dazed expression by the evening on Thursday.
  11. Big Games at epic25

    Nice - make sure you grab me at some point, so we can add it to the community timetable, and the Lakeside Lot will point people your way as well.
  12. Big Games at epic25

    He has been known to get his Puyo-Puyo Tetris out!
  13. Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles

    I'm going to be getting it for Switch - I didn't play back through it fully on the GameCube.
  14. Big Games at epic25

    So, the votes are in from the Big Game twitter-chatter last week, and your ringmaster Reech has tabulated the scores, and will announce that the games we'll be playing at epic25 in the Big Games schedule are as follows... Unreal Tournament 2K4 (£8.99 on Steam) Golf with your Friends (£4.79) and\or Golf It (£5.99) CoD4: Promod (£19.99) Rainbow 6 Seige (£11.99) DoD: Source (£7.19) Worms: Armageddon (£10.99) - although we may be playing this as a group in the Gallery! Quake 3 Arena (12.99) - although Quake Live (£6.99) may be a choice here! Minecraft Hunger Games (Java version £17.95) Armagetron (£Free!) Blur (Currently unavailable, but a LAN favourite that many of us have - but you might want to prep Flatout 2 (£5.99) as well...) CS Fun Maps (£7.19) Team Fortress 2 (£Free) We'd also encourage you to have Half Life 2 Deathmatch around (GravGun FTW, if there's not enough Garry'sModders!) plus, take a look through past epics and see what you'd like to join in with because remember - we can run other stuff as well, as can you lot - just give the Lakeside Desk Crew a shout, and we'll do everything we can to get people warmed up and playing in the games. Even if people like @habzvip are trying to use her exploity powers in Golf with Your Friends, or if @FaultForce is trying to persuade you to go toe-to-toe with one of his decks in Heathstone (and the less said about @Blossy and his Tetris-fetish the better...) - we're still wanting to run MORE games that you want to play. We'll be announcing the actual schedule for the Big Games next week, but for now, start your engines!
  15. epic25 Saturday Night Event: Laniversary!

    Before my time, but I am aware of the legend!
