The tournaments will be scheduled so that you can participate in both. Streaming of games will alternate between KritzKast & Essentials.

Let’s make this the most competitive community LAN yet!

What happens if I get knocked out early in the 6v6 or Highlander tournament?
There will possibly be a ‘lower bracket’ for remaining teams to keep you occupied on the Friday, provided there are sufficient signups.

Might hop along for the weekend, money is tight. The more people going the bigger effort I shall make. If my brother can’t come with me and I have to go alone it would be nice to have a companion or group to stay with and be able to keep in contact with and maybe have people who can show me around or give me some advice in case I get lost. I’ve never traveled alone. I would be arriving Thursday evening and staying on Friday, Saturday and leaving on Sunday. Want to know who is going though because I don’t want to show up without people I know being there.

Last LAN was great, especially when possible hacker Jakecryzyy was really nice despite me making his team fold and accusing him of hacks to irritate his team. Everyone on Lowpander/Loli squad was fantastic, Meeting ubrs, mon and even Muuki was really nice but he’s been different recently online. Loli Squad are still the nicest people around and they were all great. Menty gave me a goodbye hug being the last person I saw. Meeting people like Yak, Nation, Alfie, T0rrit, Fellow Scot Nuze, Mike’s gf was great as well as many others. Everyone had firm handshakes which is great, remember to have a firm handshake, you don’t want to be like NiCO god’s hand and have a weak handshake.

It was even weaker than BaBs but she is a woman and he is “god’s hand”. Always have a firm handshake if you are a man. Was very unimpressed with NiCO at LAN, no shittalk like he would do online and no banter or fun or making up. I’m planning on flying from Edinburgh if I do go, it depends on who else is going.

I’ve posted this in the Discord in the #accommodations channel already as well, but Norwegian sent me a nice link to find some cheap hotels/hostels in Copenhagen after booking my flights. Take a look here if there is anything there.

Copenhagen Games hasn’t posted anything yet on their website, so you know as much as I do about the discount codes.
