  1. SUMMER MUSIC FESTIVAL Saturday Night Event

    Yes, go cyber, Joe!
  2. Splatoon on Switch?

    I was crap at it and traded mine in (nooooo!) for Hyrule Warriors. I'm sure there are a few splatters that will play over the weekend!
  3. Friday morning run at LAN

    Wow - that's dedication! There is a running track nearby, will have to see if it's public access. Also, things are pretty slopey and hilly around the housing estates...
  4. epic24 - Menu

    I will be going the whole Burrito route on Saturday!
  5. BIG GAMES and FUN TOURNAMENTS at epic24

    That'd be great, Dan - I've been going through the user guide in advance of testing server before event, but any suggestions for combining sessions and putting some 'this is what you do' notes togehter will be appreciated - shout me on discord!
  6. Peace out flower child! Or is it rock out with your... erm, or perhaps just sit back, and relax with the chill beats. It's Summer Music Festival time at epicLAN, and we're going to be letting it all hang loose on Saturday night from 8pm with a variety of festival music - from Woodstock era to Download, Isle of Wight to Ibiza, and we're going to be asking you to join in with some music festival themed games (although we're not doing the Glastonbury mud-wrestling thing, not even if you ask nicely, okay?) There'll be a Battle of Bands Rockband competition in the Gallery, as well as a dance-off with Just Dance - there'll also be a few other festival style party distractions (including the return of beer pong tournament), and as ever the bar staff are going to come up with some stunning summer-themed cocktails that will be available from the bar. We're also planning some suitabley summer themed food for the evening. You're encouraged to come in suitable attire - so whether it's your grandmother's tye dye shirt, your uncle's crusty old sandals, or far too much leather than should be worn in the height of summer we'd like to see you get your groove on, and join us. If any of you are aspiring face painters, we'd love to see what designs you can come up with to bring on the summery feelings - although you'll have competition in the form of our own Squirrel... Oh, and we're not holding it in a field, right? It's in the gallery. See you on Saturday night!
  7. So we're doing something a little bit different at epic24. We'll still have the schedueld big games, but we've not put as many on, plus we'll be inviting you to take part in score-and-survive challenges (both at your PC and in the console area) to see who can proclaim themselves LANchamps. Or a title that isn't quite as twee as that, at any rate. The timetable will be added on nearer the event's start, but for now, this is what you can look forward to: PUBG (We have access to a custom server with a variety of modes; squads, solos, zombies...) Minecraft Hunger Games (Java Edition) Blur Golf with Your Friends \ Golf It! TF2 ETS2 Early Morning Trucking Hour (using Truckers MP) Overwatch Quiplash \ Jackbox Games (in the Gallery, midnight following pub quiz) Darwin Project Remember - these aren't the only games you can play at LAN, and are by no means the only ones we're running; these are designed to get as many people as possible playing together; you can advertise for players for other games on community timetable, or ask the events team in Lakeside to gather people for other games. Be ready for reech to wander round and ask what you're playing, and why everyone else should be playing it too... In addition, we'll be hosting the following fun tournaments - information will be added at least 2 weeks before the event so you can sign up on the tournament site, to guarantee your place. (As always - if you're in a prize tournament and haven't been knocked out, you should not sign up to a fun tournament. Check with reech or Freddie W at the event if you have any queries.) Hearthstone PUBG Squad Mario Kart (Switch) Factorio Scenario Streetfighter 30th Anniversary (SFIII: 3rd Strike) Arms Keep checking back on this page and on the facebook\twitter feeds as we'll release more information as signups become available.
  8. Will point out the community stuff - I know several people have been using that as well, more than happy with that, Joe.
  9. Since 2016, we've been featuring people directly broadcasting on to the twitch.tv/epiclan channel during the week, to show people that we're still doing stuff in between events. More people than ever before are streaming across twitch, and plenty of our attendees either dabble or have dived headfirst in with full schedules, so we don't feature as many people directly as we did before (although you can still catch gunmens, reech, nick and M0rt at various times) so we're doing something a little different to showcase how many of our attendees and staff are doing exciting stream type stuff. We'll still feature people directly on the channel who want to do that, such as Gunmens on Sunday afternoon - but we're inviting staff and attendees to join our team page at twitch.tv/team/epiclan . This is where we point people during our events, so they can follow everything that goes on - but now we'll send people there so they can see the variety of games and content you all do. Here's what we're offering you - and what you can help us out with. For broadcasting on epiclan Weekly scheduled slots Please turn up to them, or you risk being dropped off (oh no!) - give me as much notice as possible if you need to change; of course emergencies do happen, so I'm not going to be a total git about this Keeping engagement with viewers about what epicLAN is and what we do - play, chat, and interact! Commands added to bot !so {username} for you and other epicLAN people - do so as they turn up …and don't forget to !so and chat about YOUR channel; if you have a regular schedule or want to point to places, I can set up commands like !reech which will have more info for those broadcasters: Reech streams on Tuesday and Thursdays at twitch.tv/re_reech :: Follow him there and at twitter.com/reechme :: The last thing they were doing was $(twitch game $(1)) For broadcasting on your own channel Let reech know on the #epicstreamteamchannel your schedule and he'll set up tweets before time to point to your channel on our feed We won't do facebook posts for every stream BUT we will say 'featuring this week' for those who let us know at start of week to avoid flooding people Please set your BOT to let viewers know about epicLAN and our next event; I'd suggest the following two messages (alternate, one every 30 minutes; timers can do this - or set up as !commands and call 'em every hour) I'm part of the epicLAN StreamTeam - find out more here :: https://www.twitch.tv/team/epiclan epic.LAN is one of the UK's most exciting LAN gaming events featuring a great range of social games and eSports tournaments :: Next Event in $(countdown Jun 7 2018 4:00:00 PM GMT) :: epic24 - 7-10 June 2018 - To find out more visit www.epiclan.co.uk/epic24 Remember to update after every event! …and have a little chat with the viewers about us at least once every session. What else will we do on the epicLAN channel? Playlists of VODs will be set up during the week; featuring content from recent epicLAN events, matches, tournaments and also past streams - we'll theme this to let you know what content is coming up during the week. (At least) once a month; community game night - Board Game, TF2, Minecraft Hunger Games, Quiplash. Host schedule - again, for those who have told me their full schedule, we'll place them on the host list and let people know about them. Priority goes to those who broadcast at least one slot on the epicLAN channel in a month; otherwise reech will promote and move who we feature on a weekly basis so we're not just constantly rebroadcasting the same StreamTeamer! Subscriptions? We'll be encouraging people to sub to the individual streamers - I'll modify the commands for subs about this to include (…or if you like this streamer, go to THEIR channel and sub to support them!) We'll still encourage people to sub to epicLAN (especially those who JUST want to stream on epicLAN) For epiclan subscribers, when we get 3 subs\resubs in a session, we'll do a giveaway - check with reech about these. If you want to get involved, post here, or speak to reech at discord.gg/epiclan
  10. fun tournament sugestions?

    We'll definitely do more big screen games with things like Porcunpine (that was fantastic) and Crawl; they won't be fun tournaments, but we will be dragging people to the Gallery and the TVs in the console area to do this.
  11. fun tournament sugestions?

    Poyu Poyu Tetris may be a good one to test out - very easy for everyone to get to grips with - will do some further research by playing it on the train to Reigate next week!
  12. fun tournament sugestions?

    Yes - this WILL happen; however there's no full release date yet other than 'this year' so watch this space... On that front, Mario Kart Switch WILL make a return at epic24; the huge numbers of people playing makes it inevitable! Still looking for other suggestions - Streetfighter did well, but I don't think we can better that, so perhaps a different fighting game?
  13. Fun Tournaments at epic23

    Not this time, what with the Streetfighter theme. However I've cleaned up the console cube, and it'll be downstairs in Lakeside for people to jump into whenever they want to. I'm still waiting to see if they do a new version for the Switch...
  14. We did this a while back, and then they went away, but now they're back. We're relaunching our Community Game Servers and will be hosting games for you to join in and have fun with. More servers will appear as we try out different things, but for now epicLAN Minecraft - server2.epiclan.net:25565 / Whitelist server Years and years ago we enjoyed the block building game, and it's never really gone away. We've started up a new survival server for you to play on. The aim here is pure Survival Minecraft. Explore, gather, build. No big grants of diamonds or wraiths wandering around in the main world, just the game! Simple rules for the server: Don't be an ass bully , No Griefing\Pranking , No swearing\racism (all ages welcome) , No Stealing , Just have fun! It's vanilla with no protections on gear and stuff, so we're asking people to play nice, and play well - and just enjoy! How to play: It's a whitelisted server, so join discord.gg/epiclan and post in the #epicMinecraft channel to get whitelisted - we'll try and sort it out within a few hours Admins: Reech, Justcallmelewis, Dunceantix Current whitelist: _gunmens_, Diigitalsa1nt, Davemarr, froggy911, KindredPhantom, leftone, hardyyy, brothersoft, I amHaden, JustCallMeLewis, Dunceantix epicLAN Battalion 1944 - Newly available, and bringing the classic FPS shooter action to the front. We've set up a server so you can challenge in 5v5 matches. We're looking for feedback and seeing how many people are getting into the game as we've had requests to bring it to LAN. Play, have fun, and we'll see what we can do. How to play: Get Battalion 1944 , start the game, go into console mode and use the command connect or connect server2.epiclan.net:27020 ...and that's not all! We'll see how people are playing, and you can always give Reech#9632 a shout in discord if you have some suggestions for other servers, and we'll see what we can arrange. In the past, we've played around with Conan: Exiles, ARK, Starbound and others. Over the coming months we'll aim to bring a variety of games - all you need to do is bring yourself!
  15. Fun Tournaments at epic23

    Switch joycons, wirelessly.
