Epic 22- the good the bad and the CS:GO screambuoys

47 posts in this topic

As a caster this LAN I was saved from the usual CSGO antics. I always enjoy myself regardless, but let's face up to the biggest issue...

 

The food at Epic is of the lowest quality and prepared horrendously. As staff I got my breakfast for free and after day one I decided it wasn't even worth that. It's complete and utter garbage. I wouldn't feed that quality of food to my dog. It's not even down to the haphazard display in the kitchen; it's the inherent poor quality that shows.

 

Edit: just wanted to add to my post that the Epic staff were as excellent as usual.

It was legitimately hard to play multilayer games this lan as we couldn't even hear ourselves over teamspeak above the screaming, it was picking up on all our mics on the back row and we weren't even closest to them!

Oddly enough i was on the row next to the screaming and the only thing interfering with our teamspeak was your robot. 
You could say it was picking up on all our mics in the middle row and we weren't even closest to it!!!

We only got 2 complaints over the weekend about it, one very nice person came over and asked us to turn it off, and the other time when Gumpster came over and asked us to turn it off. I can be just as ignorant as you.

I must admit Gump, your reply is incredibly naiive, denying that there is a problem because no one has said anything is unacceptable. People complained to you many times, or anyone else for that matter (just check the discord) about the robobutler. The number of times you spoke to us was once which was quickly brushed off as we turned the volume back up 15 minutes later.


1. Crying about csgo being loud
2. ignore the admin then make the robot louder....
3. Why on earth do you need to bring a robobutler

If you could point out the "fair criticism" then great, all I saw was you explaining why it was your right to turn your stupid robot up again after being told to turn it down by a member of staff.

 

You ask them to do more about noise levels when it isn't you making the noise, then don't respect their authority when they make a decision on the same subject?

 

Grow up.

 

Jesus wept, did your vagina come preloaded with sand or do you have a special shovel for it?

 

The fact that the butler (i'd appreciate if we all referred to him by his proper title - DeadJazzy (DJ for short)) was turned up again without consequence was the very demonstration of the poor control on noise, the issue descended into madness (and continues to descend further still) for the rest of the weekend from then on.

 

Some members of staff even told us to turn it up to shut the CSGO kids up.

Who knew you lot were such thin skinned babies. We knew we were noisy you retard, we did it on purpose. What we're trying to debate is what is going to be done to maintain noise levels for everyone next time.

Is it so hard to say you're sorry for pissing off dozens of people, that it wasn't the best idea to bring it, and that you'll leave it at home in future?

I mean I literally said why in my post. DeadJizzy had a negative effect on people's enjoyment at LAN. Regardless of CSGO kiddies screaming, you made a decision to be deliberately obnoxious. After watching Bladerunner 2049 I'm all for people exploring the idea of relationships with artificial creations, but not at EpicLAN.

The decision to be obnoxious was a result of the environment. To attempt to seperate these issues would be to miss the point.

They're currently undergoing a 'lifestyle reassignment' that they don't like to talk about in public thank you very much. You may be able to recognise them (they prefer to use gender neutral terms) at future events.

When sitting in Fair Isle (or iseries, or dreamhack, or any competitive lan environment)  you expect a degree of noise, cheering, even screaming.  The csgo players may be toeing the line (and as mentioned in my previous post seem to be pushing it further and further each event) but they are tolerated as we'd rather have the atmosphere with a few inappropriate outbursts at the occasional round end.   This is the environment we are used to and for the most part encourage.

 

What isn't encouraged, expected and should definitely not be tolerated when you turn up to play in a competitive lan is a giant robot butler making unintelligible noises from half way across the lan hall which then echo across teamspeak.

 

Now this could easily be resolved if you'd just turned it off (permanently) when asked but as we can see:

Jesus christ... maybe if you can all speak to each other (on both sides) like adults rather than little spoilt kids, a solution could be found... This whole argument is just pathetic.

 

If you have a problem with something during LAN, you can go and ask them nicely to quiet down a bit, or speak to staff. But this is a LAN and you're to expect noise from everyone!

 

Making increased noise after a complaint on purpose is just rude and insulting to staff. So whether that's CSGO players screaming louder or a bloody robot - if you're asked nicely to tone it down you should do so. And the fact it's been admitted that the robot was bought just to piss people off is just as stupid. This doesn't highlight a "noise problem" it highlights a you problem as you seem to think that's a good thing to do? I don't get it!

 

If you have an issue, speak nicely to them or staff to get it resolved and if it doesn't go your way then just crack on and enjoy yourself regardless - there's no need to become argumentative over something as stupid as this.

 

And if you don't like it, then you know what you can do for the next event.

 

*group hug*

 

Now... lets go on topic.

 

The Good

 

- The weather! It went quite in our favour!

- Catering staff were lovely!

- Reech's continued awesomeness (get yourself some vocalzones next time!)

- Overwatch 1v1 Fun Tournament! Forced friend in to join us and he bloody wins it. Jammy git.

- I didn't have to babysit anyone :D

- Winbar letting me borrow his Apple Watch charger. <3

- Beer Pong was an hilarious watch!

 

The Bad

 

- Lakeside temperature was freezing first thing and too hot at the end of the day. Got a fan though so that helped. But had to keep the coat on in the morning to warm up! Last LAN seemed more consistent.

- Catering food was pretty meh... We got lucky with fresh chips one night. But the rest of the time it was all quite cold. But yay for JustEat!

- Internet speed was awful! Much worse than last LAN and kept timing out when trying to download a small 50MB file. PUBG wasnt cached on Steam and in game seemed a bit laggy. But other gaming wise it worked fine.

- Lakeside desks. These picnic benches are so uncomfortable and itchy! And the lumps between planks makes using the mouse an entertaining task.

- Bar staff bought from downstairs on Saturday night with no clue on what they're meant to be serving and being told by attendees on what to serve (including telling them we should use plastic cups not glasses). Managed to use a glass for one pint which was lovely (it's always better!) but took it back to the bar afterwards!

- Pub quiz. The screamy screamy people! Oh my god my ears! It stopped being funny after the first time.

 

The Ugly

- This thread.

It's all been sorted on discord. The jist of the agreement was that everyone hates CS:GO screamers.

If you choose a seat in Fairisle, the home of the CS:Go tournaments, you should know they're not going to be sitting there like choirboys ...

Yes but this wasn't about people going yeah, great play well done, this was about people in a hall going screeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeyyyyyy, cos they won a pick on a deagle round. Then following it up by I fucked your mom, she hated it but guess what your gonna have brothers and sisters in 9 months. I mean I think we're a level above that surely. People don't have to play nice at lan, and sledging is something we do but does it have to involve the whole of fairisle? Type that shit in chat and let the fans watching the live stream too have a laugh

We did actually pick up on this ourselves as staff. Last LAN the aircon wasn't really keeping up in the summer so it was less of an issue, but this time round it was just about coping during the day. We forgot to turn it off when we went to bed so as you can imagine it cools down dramatically overnight when people go to sleep and PCs idle, so it ends up cold in the morning.

 

Something us Lakeside staff will be looking out for in February's LAN!

I don't know if you've been reading the feedback, most people have stated they don't expect silence. Just don't expect screeching and shouted insults after every kill/round.

 

It had nothing to do with our group but I really liked the Robot Butler although he didn't butle me, I barely heard him and we were pretty much in the middle of the room, i'd rather hear him every 3 minutes than screeching.

 

It would have been interesting to see how staff dealt with any confrontations stemming from someone calling someone else's mum a slag.
