If you were to think we're asleep at the wheel, you would be wrong! We've been out telling everyone about our coming LAN, and there's lots of cool stuff coming that you haven't even seen yet!

Today we bring you the first poll for the mini-tournaments, the CS:GO team building thread, the first flash game challenge, and the start of our prepay raffles.

Today we announce the first flash game challenge!
This flash game challenge features the game "Red". All you have to do is have the highest score submitted by midnight Friday March 18th (first day of the LAN) and be present at the LAN, then you win a prize!

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/

Further details for LANified! 25: Colossal, our best LAN party ever, and to prepay, head to -> LANified!


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!:
DotA 2 -> LANified! 25: Colossal - DotA 2 Team building MEGA THREAD :: LANified!
CS:GO -> LANified! 25: Colossal - CS:GO Team building MEGA THREAD :: LANified!

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

If you aren't familiar with how to participate, just head to -> Steam Community :: Group :: LANified!



Oh, and in-case you somehow missed it, we're hosting a 300 gamer LAN party! Full details at -> LANified!

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
We want to continue with the event as designed, so we are not planning to make other major changes.


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 : LANified!

Some convincing gamers have made some rather convincing arguments regarding some of the elements of our coming Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Grand Title Tournament at LANified! 25: Colossal.

As such, we have reviewed these concerns, and the following changes have been made:

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive: Grand Title Tournament rule and format changes

  1. Stage 3 - Tier 1, aka "Finals", WAS Double-Elimination bo1. IS NOW Single-Elimination bo3.
  2. Stage 3 - Tier 1, aka "Finals", WAS top 4 or top 8 teams entering (depending on # of teams). IS NOW only top 4 teams entering (from Stage 2 Tier 1).
  3. Swiss & Round Robin stages, WAS starting sides determined by knives. IS NOW starting sides randomly assigned by LANified! Tournament Administration.
  4. Single Elimination stages, WAS map picked through knives. IS NOW map selection is performed at the Tournament Administration area, teams have 2 vetoes, then teams agree to maps, failing that map assigned by LANified! Tournament Administration.
  5. Single Elimination stages, WAS sides picked through knives. IS NOW starting sides randomly assigned by LANified! Tournament Administration.


Full current rules and format for CS:GO:




We have also had concerns raised about our map selection, namely inferno. We will revisit the map list closer to the event, as plenty can change between now and then, including hopefully a revised Inferno.

If you need help finding/forming a team for our coming event, we have multiple threads in our STEAM group discussion section, and we highly recommend you post in the thread relevant to your interests.

LANified! 25: Colossal already has 112 people signed up as of this writing, 79 of them wanting to play CS:GO. If you want to participate in Western Canada's best gaming tournaments, be sure to prepay and secure your seat today.

Hey Folks!

We just re-designed our Team Forming Threads, and stuff around that. If you have or have not posted in any of our past Team Forming Threads, please be sure to check the new stuff out, and post (again)!

This can all be found at : LAN!25 - Team Building Mega Thread (redesign) :: LANified!

Also, our coming event, LANified! 25: Colossal, is less than two months away! As such, we need to start paying for the event, so if you're coming, be sure to get your ticket today to show your support : LANified!
