Guide to your epic.LAN event

Recommended Posts

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
  • 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.


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.
  • Forgot something
    • Our onsite 24-hour shop has Food, Drinks and last-minute items that you need whether that’s a VGA cable, Kettle lead or Batteries and mouse matts. We also have the epic Branded Gear. These go quick so don’t miss out

 

LAN Weekend
Enjoy yourself

  • Big Games
    • Check out our big games timetable jump into games with others and show them who's boss
  • go to the epic Hub
    • Accept hub notifications from the epic hub, Get notifications for big games taking place and reminders for when catering and bar closes and opens (MORE important)
    • Also add stuff to the community time table, We see you all playing games. Want to get more people set a time up for it and people will join you.
  • Fun Tournaments
    • Check out the fun tournaments and prizes sign up and aim to win
  • Shower
    • Make use of the onsite facilities such as the showers. They will help you feel fresh and stop LAN death spreading. I’m sure people around you will be grateful too.
  • Top up your epic Event Account
    • Did you know you have an event account you can put money on. This can be used to buy all manner of goods at our event from the epic.shop. Great
  • Eat and drink
    • Make use of the onsite catering, Epic shop and Bar. They are handy for your food and drink needs. You can also order food in. However, we would ask you provide your name and User name and Seat number when ordering food. This will help the staff find you and get the food to you while it's hot.
  • Socialise
  • Visit the stands
    • We always try to get companies to our events keep an eye out for these and go say hi see what they have.
  • Internal voice comms,
    • Yes we have an internal voice comms system TeamSpeak. 
  • Tweet
    • Yes we have an epic tweet wall on display at our events. Push a tweet out with the hashtag #epic23wall

Will Facebook Events be used for Pub Quiz tickets, is is that a 'turn up on the day' thing?

 

My first time attending and can't wait. Thanks for the very helpful guide for newbies like me!

If the aircon is anything like it was at 21 in Lakeside, definitely bring warm clothing! We were shivering in the middle of summer. Our guys were sitting in sleeping bags! Definitely better than being too hot though so this isn't a complaint but be prepared for this as a possibility!

      Hi!
      First of all, forgive me if that's not the place to post this, I made an account just for this.
      As the title says, I'm a dota player and I'm looking for people to play with at the lan. I realize that the dates to register are long due, but if there's a possibility to replace a missing player or if a spot opens in any way, I'd be willing to fill it.
      Here's steam profile and dotabuff for reference:

      epic24 seems so long ago and I haven't been back since. Having taken the 3v3 Rocket League tournament, I'm hungry for more.
       
      And so...
       
      I have plans to return to epic27 with a new team behind me! I am incredibly excited as epic24 was my first taste of a LAN and I loved every minute of it. It's completely worth the 700 miles round trip and I'm ready to do it all over again!
