https://discord.gg/0gE1etnghzmsULYD

Parent
Needless to say Europe Delirium is down for it (6v6)
Not sure yet about the line-up though but count us in!
Great to have you posting here again beck, would be very happy to see you again

Sure mate. Looking forward to it. Let's make sure it happens :)

Parent

I hope you will attend so we can post celebrate your birthday Bobi
Parent
So ten teams are needed in both 3on3 & 6on6 format to go ahead with it?

Parent
My dream would become reality
Parent
Europe#follow.et eSport cklub since 2008 is interested
Aye captain, not sure how serious you are, but I would be very glad to have your team participating!
Parent
Surprisingly serious considering its Francis
Parent
I've always been serious on the internet, whats your point jonge?
Parent
We have had a professional discussion about this and it is looking more possible:
Europe #follow.et Professional eSports Gayming Club (Since 2008):
France Francis
United Kingdom niSmO
Netherlands Rick aka Enigga
plus a few others that I'm not sure about. Will keep you posted on whether it is realistic.

Warmest regards,
United Kingdom Joe

e: will there be games on friday? working friday, so was going to come friday evening
Parent
Aye Joe, that is some fantastic news! Do you want me to add your team to the list of interested ones?

Most likely, the 3on3 tournament will be held on Friday (that includes during the day) and the 6on6 games on Saturday and Sunday. Isn't it an option to get a day off and arrive Thursday night and enjoy some beers?
Parent
yes pls, we would be 6on6

Can't take time off work - I am a teacher! I get good holidays anyway ;D
Parent
lets do it!
Parent
cu Krefeld jonge
Parent
gogogo, nice to hear some guys still around and trying to get something going!
brauchste nen team ?
Parent
hahaha, ye but he wont give you money
Parent
nene ned wirklich geplant ;D
Parent
Thanks SPU9 good to see you around again
Parent
Avi for 3on3, be good please. As for 6on6, I could backup for some team if needed, dont really have much interest in playing 6on6.
What's true about the rumors you are forming a team with tekao?
Parent
Total bullshit, I haven't even spoken to teKoa for a long time and don't see any reason why he would be even slightly interested to go to a LAN. Me and leku on the other hand might form a 3on3, checking now if we find some good third we(me) are satisfied with and then lets go.
Parent
Good luck with forming a team
Parent
You'll get shit on mate
Parent
Doubt it, Im guessing my team wouldnt lose a round if we would be in shape, seeing I dont have much problems playing against yermanz or you with 60fps and my goddamn nearly 9 year old PC + 60hz :O)
Parent
playingbaiting teammates for stats and losing
Parent
Bring back prone and mortar. Make flamethrower a bit more powerful. ET was always controlled by old noob admins who don't know how to play the game. I think it was razz back in the day who was playing mortar full time in gr attack. :-D

Oh and upgrade the graphics and physics with new maps made together with map makers and pro players. Seeing how big esports is I think it would be a success.

anyone?
Drug money? :D
Parent
etpro gaming money bruh
Parent
thats racist because he's black
Parent
We don't need to make ET a succes in eSports. These LAN's are pure nostalgia bro.
Parent
Last lan in Enschede was a disaster and nothing nostalgic there.

The pc's were really terrible. In Finland free schools throw pc's like that into trash. Can't believe how you end paying for them? 50% Of the pc's had this weird resolution problem that you were not able to fix during the week end.

Also you forced to start our 3on3 semifinal when 2 of our pc's were fucked up and didn't think of a equal solution for both teams? Every Lan I was before they never forced a start before all players were confident with their setup.

Other than that was nice to meet some people again.
Parent
I have to agree on some points but I must say organisation wise in bruxelles it was way better. Strong pc's, good screens, enough space.. but even then resolution errors occured etc..
Parent
Haha there too? It must be some player who fucks up the pc's then :D

razz with his black bars?
Parent
Stating facts about a LAN that was even by people making it considered awful in the aspects you mentioned is funny, because this LAN and the place where it should be was actually praised :(
Parent
Last LAN in the last november organized in Brussels was very good tbh. Very good PCs, enough space to play properly, good setup. It was my first LAN but I think it was a really solid LAN.
Parent
Last LAN in Bruxelles the PC's were way better, not comparable with the ones in Enschede.
Besides that I only needed 1 minute for my setup like always, don't get it why people always make such fuss about complicated settings
Parent
I've always felt the same - it should be pretty quick and straight forward to setup PCs.
Parent
If the mouse accel is deleted and your mouse/headphones don't need a driver then for sure :p
Parent
A professional ET player can play using any config or any driver
Parent
Or fund everyone cheats with his ET folder and get 10 people banned on LAN
Parent
Are you 16 yet? :D
Parent
Oh shit, did you hit your head?
Parent
It was hit a long time ago :-)
Parent
+1 BRING BACK MORTAR ! ! ! ! ! !
Parent
I remember playing u in a 3on3 open cup, razz u(?) and madscientist fucking proning 24/7
Parent
Niin, on urheilu itsessääkin joo, mutta ei ne kaikki lajit. ET ei tuu olee yks niistä ihan sama vaikka tehtäs uusi ET, RtCW2 tai mitä ny vaa :) Vaikka ne ei ois kussu käteen koko DB:tä niin ei siitä ois tullu kilpailijaa CS:GO / Overwatchille. Näin se vaan on!
Parent
Bring back prone? You must be as high as a kite.
Parent
Id make an epic comeback to play here
nice nice nice!

gl timbo!
In.
Will show up again probably.
Cu there boys
Meet @ McDonalds ?
Parent

Parent

Parent
Currently pretty busy with my thesis at Robeco, will put more time into ET again once I'm finished, you?
Parent
When are you finished, you still owe me the carrying in 6o6
Parent
Haha m8, I'll be finished by the end of December with my thesis. Gonna visit Chile in January and February but will be more active then again
Parent
Delivering my thesis in May, so I got enough time to finish my experiments and hopefully writing :D
Parent
avi for that
lass team machen
Parent
Ja dann leg mal los. Ich bin dabei.
Parent
sind doch eh nur noch hafenmeister am start. lust hät ich aber wohl tbh
Parent
any more atractions except et lan ?
Kebab place around the corner, Brussel is pretty chill, maybe some bombings to watch.
Parent
bars, bars everywhere
Parent
What would you like to include?
Parent
poker nl holdem in the evening ? as a tournament :D ?
Parent
That's definetely an option if there is enough interest. Would it make a difference for you attending?
Parent
never been in belgium, might come for fun if got a team
Parent
Experience has learned there is no time for poker tournm
Parent
because of delays ?
Parent
Well picture this: friday 3o3 tournament starting with 2 groups 1 in the morning one around 1300. Exactly after that the late brackets starts and if we're lucky we'll finish up arouns 23:00 if not, its possible the final will be around 01:00. Saturday is the least busy day: seeding tournament (?) Or first bracket rounds, and even then it could end up quiet late: ~21:00 maybe? Sunday is total chaos because the late brackets and finals are meant to be played and after that people will most likely go home.. but i have to say something like a tournament, even with a busy schedule, is awesome.

On the other hand, since steam with thousands of games are installed on those machines, an h1z1 mini tournament in the spare time would be quiet interesting aswell
Parent
Nice to hear, sign up people! :)
avi. Try to get pansy to sacrifice a weekend and shoutcast.
We'll definitely do our best to make this LAN as good as possible
Parent
Sounds like a sound tactic sebhes m8
Parent

Will I have to carry your ass on CS again? :s
Parent

Parent
No man, my PC became too old to handle CS, I cant even launch the game anymore ahah
Parent
hahah shait, it must be ancient then! :D
Parent
Never played with the new sounds ( USP, AK etc..). So yeah its been a while. I will spend my entire time at LAN playing CS on good pc :D
Parent
haha. Not if I can bring my own gear this time :D

Parent
Memories...
Parent
intersted pm here or /q hassan
Would love to see some old school RtCW matches, the game is small which would be as easy as putting a single copy on a usb, and having everyone take 2mins to transfer it over.

Most of the ET community already know the RtCW maps as they're the amazing defaults of this game :) The game play is as just as exciting, and it would offer more players who haven't tried RtCW the chance to try it out. I'm sure some big ET players would love to try RtCW out again, or try it.

Only mentioning this as an alternative to some fun when no ones playing(being serious), don't want it getting in the way of any ET match.
Considering some mainly rtcw players are coming it would be nice to see it
Parent
+1 even though this will be impossible to organise during the weekend i guess..
Parent
We are considering to let each player have their own PC throughout the tournament (or per format). Players are free to do what they want on the PCs after match time. Having RTCW matches is of course possible in that case
Parent
Thanks for considering, only mentioning this as an alternative for more action that's like ET.

There is absolutely no other game in existence that is anything like ET, other than RtCW. Therefore, why on earth wouldn't you guys try a few games. There is still servers, that I'm sure you'd all ping fine too(ask h2o he's good with servers). Get a little 3v3 going on ice or frost for old time sakes, or even 6v6 if people are interested. Heck I'd even through in some $ just to see the match casted by Merlinator. Make this happen seb!
Parent
I definitely appreciate the way you are asking this. RTCW is in the end where it all begun. Having something like a 6on6 showmatch with some (hopefully) big players to honor the legacy of the game is certainly something we can consider once we get more concrete with the LAN.

In case I might forget, feel free to remind me in the future.
Parent
No problem, hopefully you all have some spare time for another great game.
Parent
reminder 1! :D
Parent
That would be awesome. Atleast we can be real nerds then all weekend!
Parent
mAus has spoken, is there really anything else that needs to be said? make this happen guys! :)
Parent
So when I lived in Belgium none of the LANs ever was there. Now I don't live in Belgium anymore and all LANs are there...

image: Futurama-Fry
Haha I apologize for the inconvenience Rhand
Parent
Definitely coming to this one
Hey, I heard you were a free agent, let's make an ET team.
Parent

Parent
