ASLAN #19: In Review

ASLAN #19 took place on the 23rd of July, 2011 at Hillcrest Community Centre - another success with ten hours of LAN gaming goodness!

Our hard-working admins and volunteers worked from 10:00am to ensure the event ran smoothly.

The fun opened at 2:00pm with TrackMania, followed by Blur, Team Fortress 2 and Unreal Tournament competitions.

Chris "DrGeForce3" Cichon was the DJ for the event.

Paul "Rids" Ridley (middle) returned to MC the LAN and initiated competitions and registered players for team games.

Daniel "Shadey" Moscon was once again lord of the kitchen. Making a return were fare such as pasties, pies and and sausage rolls, and delicious new dishes were available; Shadey's vegetable and lamb "Shadey's Soup" and shepherd's pie.

Paul "Pazza" Parry, Matthew "Machspeed" Thompson, Michael "Nekron" Kellow, and Geoff "blue18" Woodberry provided fast and effective admin support.

As everyone played on into the night, the lanners, as the Americans, were pitted against the Admins, playing as the Nazis in the D-Day map for MOHAA (Medal of Honor: Allied Assault). After an intense battle, the Admins triumphed (Heil to the Admins, baby!), avenging the loss they suffered during the previous MOHAA game at ASLAN #18. The last competition for the night was a free-for-all brawl in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. It quickly descended into a battle of will, as only the deadliest players clung on in their struggle to reach the top of the game rankings.

Finally, it was time to announce the prize winners.
