So What's a LAN Party Anyways?

In brief, a LAN Party is a gathering of people who all bring their computers, play video games together on a network, and eat nachos. The first thing people (usually parents or spouses) immediately ask is: Why would you want to do that? A computer is an expensive (and heavy) piece of precision electronics, one whose performance is negatively impacted by the accidental introduction of nacho cheese. But the fact is, a LAN Party is the most fun you can have with your machine.

You're Joking, Right?

No, really. Let's assume that you're a computer gamer and you're playing against somebody in a vicious game of deathmatch. You just lept out of a shadow, jumped down behind him, ducked an incoming rocket, and removed his head with a double-barreled shotgun.   To celebrate your victory at a LAN party, you'd:
  • savor the expression of anguish on his face
  • high-five your teammates
  • sing a rousing chorus of, "Who's yo daddy?"
  • announce that he couldn't kill you if you were on life support
  • begin the smack talk for the inevitable rematch
Now let's assume you were at home alone playing on the Internet. You'd celebrate your amazing victory in the following ways:
  • Checking your email

Legendary LAN 2020 is November 13-14, 2020, 7PM - 7PM EST (24 hours)
  • PUBG - Party-opener boiloff tournament ($30 on Steam)
  • Diabotical - twitch shooter, team-based (free on Epic)
  • Halo: Combat Evolved - old-school shooter ($10 on Steam)
  • League of Legends: Team Fight Tactics - MOBA (free online)
  • Whiffle-blasters - 1v1 ongoing tournament throughout LAN (beta keys given out at LAN)
  • Trivia Murder Party - trivia with a twist! (free at LAN)
With all of the concerns related to COVID, we thought it best to come up with a different strategy this year. A LAN in-person is essential to our vision at Legendary LAN. Most of the fun of a LAN is being in the same room with all of your favorite gamers!  But rather than do nothing this year, we will be having an online event with several LAN "pods" in various areas connected via Discord. Folks are also welcome to join at home. Things will be different, for sure! But Legendary LAN lives on. We plan to resume as normal next year with our in-person event.
Check back soon for a full schedule!
Due to the remote LAN this year, with no entry fee, we will not be giving away prizes.

However, we WILL be having our traditional marathon competition across all of our tournaments! The top 3 finishers will be awarded our traditional trophies, which will be shipped to them.
What you should bring:
  • A PC! (spares are available upon request if you do not own one capable of gaming)
  • A power strip.
  • Monitor (if over 34in, please clear it with the admins first)
  • Sleeping bag if you are staying the night
  • Toiletries - deodorant helps minimize nerd stink.
  • Any drinks (non-alcoholic ONLY) or food you want to have (some also available at LAN)
  • Your LAN fee if not pre-paid ($25)
  • Working headset with microphone
  • Mouse and keyboard
  • You can bring your own chair if you wish to game on home turf
What should I NOT bring?
  • Speakers - headsets only for sound please
  • Alcoholic beverages (some younger gamers attending), porn, drugs, hacks
