Midlans Xmas Lan

After the success of our last lan we got right down to planning the next series of Midlans events. Incorporating what we have learned from our previous lans we aim to rectify past mishaps and provide the best possible experience to all our attendees.

A lan the size of our previous event is impratical after such a short peroid of time but we are simply too impatient to wait 3 months or so to host our next event. In between larger events we intend to host smaller 1 day events monthly.

At our next lan next lan we aim to provide smoother competitions taking into consideration the advice of gaming communities from our previous lan.

This lan will feature

Full Gigabit Lan
Competition Games will have all files on a file server together.


Call of Duty 2 (Midlans Rules)
Group Deathmatch. Players randomly join 1 of several competition servers.
Top 4 from each server proceed into 2 Semi final rounds and the top 4 from those servers go through to a final round.

Unreal Tournament 2004 (Clanbase rules)
1v1 Deathmatch. 15 minute rounds. Weapon Stay off/no double damage. Random draw from a hat to determine who plays who.Players host the game and report the result to Midlans admins.

Pro Evolution Soccer 5 (Midlans Rules)
One dedicated PC will be set up at the start of event with 2 Logitech
joypads (identical to PS2 joypads). Players will play on this pc. 1v1 knockout stages.1st round random draw from hat.

A mix of a sponsors. Some of our regulars and we are pleased to annouce the inclusion of two more sponsors.

Big hand to and Domino's Pizza.
Plus as usually a few nice prizes to be won.

Due to time restraints no BF2 competition this time around but should be plenty of BF2 and SF played at the lan.
