We have a lot of news, a lot to talk about, so make sure to read the whole thing till the end! Put your reading glasses on, it is going to be a wall of text, sorry about that… (:


Before we dive into it, we want to remind everyone to sign up your team! We cannot make this happen if you don´t, so make sure to click here.
IMPORTANT: You can bindingly register and book the house by just paying 50% of the total (382.50€ if you do not arrive early on thursday) fee for your team. So if you know you will go, but you do not have all 9 people yet, you can still sign up and pay the rest later. Also, in case this was not clear yet, you can pay for all 9 players of your team at once. You do not have to pay per house, but per team. So in case you have not sorted out housing yet, that is not a problem! Please note, there will be no refund of the 50% for signing up in case the event happens. Make sure you can gather 9 gamers!
Signup deadline is 20th June! That might seem a little early, but the guys over at MTA have to make sure we can actually fill this event.

DeutschLAN sponsored by Fundraiser

As we are approaching DeutschLAN sponsored by in September with our signups already being open, we are hosting a fundraiser!

Check out our indiegogo campaign to help and donate. Feel free to save it in your bookmarks and spread it around. The more the merrier!
Of course we would not ask for you money, if we could not provide anything in return…

Highlander showmatch-series!

We are excited to announce that the elite of the Highlander scene believes in our project and wants to help us make the fundraiser and the LAN an unforgettable experience for everyone! We will be hosting a series of showmatches to entertain our donators and promote the fundraiser. Every week for the next month at least two top-notch teams will battle it out live on stream, during which you can cheer for your favourite player and hopefully abuse the donate button as much as you like!

This week’s matchup:

Kicking things off this saturday, 30th May at 20:00 CEST will be Chessclub´s DeutschLAN squad vs Stacked (& friends).

While Ireland b33p will most likely have to use a few mercenaries to patch the Ireland Stacked roster, since their season has been over and they have not been playing for a while now, European Tourettes Chessclub will compete with their LANroster European checkers to give the community a glimpse at some of the glory the champs are going to bring to DeutschLAN. The seasoned premiership veterans Denmark Scissors, Sweden Khazul, Germany quintosh and UnitedKingdom BreakfasT_Jr will show the “new kids on the block” Austria Raptor and Netherlands Nik the (premiership-) world in Germany. Sounds like an interesting mixture… only one question remains: who will be the guardians for those two at LAN?

Make sure to catch all the action this saturday over at our friends from BlackOut TV with UnitedKingdom Bulow, England Morphine & England Jon, who will provide us with an expert cast for what should be an entertaining evening of TF2 and place your bets on as 5 percent cut on this game will help fund the prizepool.

This cannot get any better? Well, we beg to differ. We heard the US-boys will make an appearance on next week´s showmatch… If I were you, I would stay tuned for any updates about that one!

Your signups are needed, make it happen, everyone!

DeutschLAN is going Fully Charged Europe!

DeutschLAN sponsored by staffmembers will join Ireland Admirable on Fully Charged Europe on 10th June. We will be answering all the open question you guys have live on stream, and maybe even break news to every viewer. Clean your schedule and tune in!

  33. Georgebaii said:

    Two Questions
    1) Is the Documentary gonna be filmed in 60 FPS and will it be downloadable?
    2) Any preview to what the actual postcard looks like or is it literally gonna be something from the local newsagents? :>

  34. DCS: (Legend) - Team HR - Nein said:

    Hi georgebaii,

    if we raise the 1000€ and we get (I believe it was Clark) to film the documentary, I was told, there would be a 60 fps+downloadable version for the donators.

    Everybody else has to watch whatever will be uploaded on youtube.

  35. Pete_: PrettyGay said:

    is #fuckhartz considered offensive then?

  36. kKaltUu: UbeR | - -chess- said:

    @ stinson, I’m not sure if the cameras support 60FPS.

    @ Pete, it’s actually mandatory.

  37. cinder said:

    Liking this event a lot.
    Obliged to everyone involved.
    LANs are necessary for game’s sustainability.

    Hope everything goes alright.
    Let’s make it a good one.

  38. Atzebumm: (ETF2L Donator) - Dr. med. said:

    @kkaltuu….ill be dead honest. real life people are ok in 30fps, as it is mostly (compared to tf2) static and slow. especially us nerds playing videogames.

    as long as the fragshow (if there is one, like on the i49 documentary) is in 60fps, everything will be fine.
