LANified! and the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo are partnering up again this year to bring more awesome video gaming tournaments to everyone!
LANified! will be running tournaments across all four days of the expo. Sign-ups for each will be taken at the day-of, and delicious prizing will be involved too!
Last year we pulled of awesome tournaments, and we saw massive interest! If you want to see what it was like last year, check out our photos at : https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set ... 861&type=3
This year will be even better! Further details are to come.
We recently presented the DotA 2 custom "Best in Calgary" plaques to team "AnimeWasAMistake". To check out the photos, head to : https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set ... 861&type=3
Take note that our coming event, LANified! 25: Colossal, has stepped up the challenge, and we will be awarding for that event "Best in Alberta" instead!

The LANified! Bootcamp Program has been quite successful thus far. Several teams have been formed, and people have gotten great practice in!
We are going to continue to foster the program, and as such we have refined the information about it.
The dedicated post for The LANified! Bootcamp Program can be found at : viewtopic.php?f=21&t=84343
We will be updating it over time, so be sure to check there for current details.
Oh, and don't forget, we're now doing this for DotA 2 too!!
LANified! 25: Colossal is being rescheduled to November 25-27 2016
If you prepaid, you should see an email from us sent to the mailbox tied to your account on our website. If you do not see the email, please email us at bloodyiron _/at/ lanified \dot)_ com.
So what is changing?
- dates of event
- dates of when earlybird/late prepay ends
So why did this happen?
Based on how many prepays we have seen in the last few weeks, we do not believe enough people will prepay in time, for the March dates, for us to be able to cover the costs of operations. As such we see the reschedule as absolutely necessary.
So what can I do about this?
Despite us having to reschedule, we have seen a massive growth in interest in this event design. But, we still need your help.
- Tell other people about the event
- Convince people interested to prepay
- DO NOT WAIT TILL THE LAST MINUTE TO PREPAY. If you're wanting to come, THEN PREPAY, please! You prepaying means others will want to prepay too. We want to fill the house, and everyone waiting till the last minute to prepay works against this goal.
The event otherwise is continuing. To find out further information about the coming event, head to : http://www.lanified.com/events/go/22/22
LANified! and Extra Life Calgary are teaming up to bring awareness to sick kids that really need help! Extra Life Calgary will be running a 48-hour gaming marathon at our coming event, LANified! 25: Colossal. They'll have a nice and comfy space to play all sorts of games at, which they'll be doing for a COLOSSAL 48 hours NON-STOP! Being a sick kid sucks, and we want to do what we can to help the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals help all the sick kids. So come hang out and game with them at the LAN! More info for Extra Life Calgary is at : https://www.facebook.com/extralifeyyc/

That's not all folks! In addition to bring attention to a serious cause, we're also helping out our fellow Dotes players. We're now opening a DotA 2 team forming/finding thread, and expanding the LANified! Bootcamp Program to include DotA 2! (effective immediately)
Do you need help forming/finding a team for CSGO/DotA 2? Well just head to these links, and they'll help you out!:

LANified! Bootcamp Program - Phase 2
In Phase 2 we are expanding the services, and reeling back on others:
- We are halting broadcasting for the time being, this is likely to return later.
- The program now includes DotA 2, there are appropriate channels on our Mumble server now for DotA 2 players, generally this will follow similar methods as the CS:GO stuff
- We are adding another Tournament Administrator "Power-Fusion" to the services, in addition to Ishamael and Xiphos
