  3. The Toilets, The Showers and the extra 300 people...

    If the toilets or showers are particulaly grim please do let a member of staff know. We will happily sort for someone to nip in and do a quick resolution and or grab Venue staff to deal with it.
  4. epic.26 - Lakeside defrag

    Your right it does. Maybe something for the two groups to discuss and sort between themselves? I'm not 100% sure on the defrag plan but they are normally done for sold out events and as you can imagine the staff are all super busy planning our biggest event yet. It would be really help if the two groups could nominate someone to chat more about it with each other and sort via PM. It saves some work for the epic staff and I think its just going to be 1/2 and 1/2 on the row by the looks of it.
  5. EPIC 26 Camping

  9. Epic 25 - The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

    I'm also going to do a good bad and ugly post. Good Epic.staff - all the staff worked their backsides for this event and it showed in the event we put on. I personally feel this was our best event ever. Yes we didn't get everything right but we will always continue to learn and grow from the feedback we get. This is the epic way Epic.punters you were all amazing and helpful and friendly. You understood issues and was always willing to wait while we resolve them. You continue to support us event after event. I hope as we grow we never loose you as you are one of the biggest reasons I staff. Sausages - omg the breakfast sausages were so good. Content - the content which came out from the event (photos, videos and stream) were all amazing The continued support from sponsors like Noctua, bequiet and Xgamer etc The support from general kcc staff in terms of build and dealing with issues Bad Food - to me the food after breakfast really dropped in standards compared to normal. I was really happy for the menu and getting to try all of it however it just wasn't as good. Additionally those wooden cutlery I'm so glad the shop had plastic cos they were horrible Toilets - why can people pull of a 360 no scope in game and then miss the god dam toilet.. If you sprinkle when you tinkle then sit down or clean up after yourselves Sleeping rooms - please remember the rule in the sleeping rooms off don't be a dick. Double airbed for 1 person is not needed... Also fire doors are used in case of fires please don't block them or get angry at me when I say you need to move. And the biggest one don't block the walk ways with suitcases or beds. I would like to be able to get to my bed after having a drink Ugly The smell in the toilets downstairs. This was reported to kcc staff who tried what they could but the smell just wouldn't go. Showers - do people shave their legs or something in the shower. The amount of hair I picked out was ridiculous. Kcc catering and bar staff. You could tell they werent out normal staff. We know our Amy wasn't well and was gutted to be missing out but it really did show this event that the staff need more training and support reasy for the event.

  13. epic24 - Maps & Customer Info

    We ask ID dependent on Age using a think 25 guide process. While entry will be allowed Alocohol Drinks may not. I would suggest getting ID sorted but i think it maybe a little too late. We can accept Passport/Driving lisences or anything with the Pass Logo.

  15. Lite South 10

  19. Guide to your epic.LAN event

    Its Mere to Mere so here is my handy little guide to all that is LAN Week Before LAN Book breakfast and Evening meal vouchers This can only be done prior to the event and it’s worth doing saves you having to worry about food for the event and saves you money. Print your ticket barcode and know your username and seat number This will help us check you in at our events meaning quicker access. If you can’t print it don’t worry but do know your user name If you’re 16 or under you will need to get a parental consent form completed and bring that to the event. Download it here https://www.epiclan.co.uk/files/ParentalConsentForm.doc Allocate your vouchers If you have bought multiple tickets or have a voucher icon next to your name on the seating plan this means you have a voucher to allocate. if it's for yourself allocate the voucher to yourself otherwise pass the details to your friend to assign the voucher. This will save a lot of time at the event meaning you can get in quick and start playing games Pack Quite important to pack all the things you need. I would suggest ensuring you have 4-way power plug, Kettle leads, etc. Also make sure you pack a towel and shower stuff. For more details check our FAQ https://epicgaming.freshdesk.com/support/solutions/articles/5000542586-what-do-i-need-to-bring- Download Games, drivers and Software While we do provide an internet connection it is shared across all the people at the event (470+) so help everyone out and get your games and software done before LAN Sign up to your esports tournaments before the event Sign up via our tournament site https://tournaments.epiclan.co.uk/ This will help us group people for the seating plan Defrag and show us numbers for future events. We can also use this data to encourage more sponsors and hopefully secure higher prize funds Talk to each other in the build up. Make use of our epic lan Discord https://discord.gg/epiclan before and at our events to talk to other players and staff. Day of LAN The event opens at 4pm Thursday, the Downstairs bar is open from 2pm Thursday with early check-in to help get people in nice and quick. Travel Make sure you check your train times and travel plans for any closures or diversions. Check in from 2-3.45 - Find a member of the epic team and ask check yourself in. From 4 you will be able to check in at the lakeside desk and the shop areas. Please note We may (and probably will) ask for ID. This is to make sure the right person is getting the ticket and that you are of legal age to drink. ID cards Must be one of the following Passport, Driving Licence, National ID Card or a Card carrying the Pass Logo. If you don’t have one we may have to count you as under 18. You will be given an under 18 band and stopped from drinking by the Venue. We use a Challenge 25 policy for this. Setup and Enjoy Setup your stuff and get going. Any issues with Networking etc please let a member of the staffing team know they will do their best to help you out.
