September debriefing
Monday, 01 October 2007 10:15

Thanks to all of you who came to the September event - I received some very positive feedback about the event. I'm sure that you guys (in general) had a great time at the end of the day, which is what really counts.

If you attended and you have some feedback on the event, please post in this thread on the forums. Tell us what we did right, and what we did wrong. If we got something wrong (and there will be at least one person who didn't like something), please tell us how we can improve, otherwise we'll never get better.

We haven't set a date for the next LAN, but the admin team will be having a get-together soon, and one of the things we'll discuss is when the next event will be. Just bear in mind that school exams are not too far away, which will influence our ability to get the venue again.

Looking forward to the next one! :)

Update: Oops. Forgot to post the link to the aforementioned forum thread. Here it is. :P

DotA tournament rules
Monday, 17 September 2007 15:16

For those of you wanting to participate in the DotA tournament at the September event, the rules for the tournament have been posted in the forum's "Tournament Discussion" section. I strongly recommend that you read them.

 The UT2004 rules will follow shortly.

 
News from the front
Tuesday, 04 September 2007 11:20

Sorry for not posting anything for a while - things have been quiet on the public side, but behind the scenes there's been a lot of activity recently, and I'm going to share some of the news with you.

Firstly, there's been some staff changes. KillerByte is leaving us next year (he's moving to the UK), and I (Ron) will be unable to attend events until next year because of a part-time course that I'm studying (although I will still be doing a lot of behind the scenes work, so I'm not leaving entirely - and I will be back at events once I complete my course) - so we've introduced some new faces. James gave us some advice with regards to the network at the first event, and I'm pleased to say that he's decided to take a more active role in events. In addition, Brendan and Rob offered us a new venue (more on that later), and they are taking an active role in the events as well - Brendan with organising the venue, and Rob will probably be the one running the tournaments when KillerByte leaves us.

Right, so now for more on the venue. We did receive some complaints after our first event that the venue in Toti was too out of the way for most people (I was one of those, as I stay in a bunker in the bundu (Kloof)). Rob and Brendan have, however, managed to organise us an alternative - the hall at Crawford College, La Lucia. This should mean less of a drive for most of you. It's also a larger venue with better power capability, so we'll be able to get more gamers in.

We're busy organising the next event now, which will likely be from the 28th to 30th September. That means that those of you who were unable to get to Rage this year can still have a LAN that weekend. :) We'll be running two tournaments - the UT2004 2v2 CTF Instagib tournament from the first LAN will make a reappearance, as it was extremely successful - and to satisfy the hordes of gamers out there, we'll be running a DotA tournament as well. We're negotiating for prizes, and I'll post on this site as soon as I know what you'll be getting (besides bragging rights). We also will be having a different pricing structure - entrance is R50, with an extra R25 for participating in the tournaments. Bookings aren't open yet, but I should be opening them later this week. (Yes, I'll be posting here as soon as I open them).

If you have any questions or comments, feel free to post on the forums, and we'll help you out fairly quickly. Our IRC channel is also operational (look for #frag on ShadowFire), although most of the event staff are only active on IRC in the evenings.
