Don’t be the monkey.
Frustrated With Quakecon Registration, Local Man With No Friends and No Know-how Says He’s Going to Hold His Own LAN at the Gaylord During Quakecon
“I know we can do this if we try,” said Barton. “All we need to do is find some guys who know something about networking and book a room for 50 people at the Gaylord.”
His last post was a week ago. It simply said, “who’s with me?!” Barton hasn’t been heard from since.
From Quakecon’s post:
Get out your case-modding tools, your tricked out rigs, and your best player vs. player skills because QuakeCon is back for it’s 23rd year!
QuakeCon® will return to the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center in 2018, inviting thousands of gamers worldwide to participate in the annual four-day video game festival featuring North America’s largest BYOC (Bring-Your-Own-Computer) LAN Party. Founded in 1996, QuakeCon has grown to be one of the most anticipated festivals in gaming, with over 9,000 game enthusiasts from around the globe attending in 2017. This year’s event will feature a number of exciting changes, including the reintroduction of panels and presentations along with three days of exhibits in the QuakeCon 2018 expo hall, which for the first time, will be open Friday – Sunday.
Guests can make room reservations at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center by calling 1-817-778-2000 or going online to: https://aws.passkey.com/e/49568787. A special room rate of $185 per night is available when you reference QuakeCon 2018!
This year’s BYOC will be doubling in size from QuakeCon 2017, so even more participants can showcase their custom computers and join the QuakeCon community to play their favorite games either solo or against one another on the same local area network.
QuakeCon is free for general attendees and open to the public thanks to the support of id® Software, Bethesda Softworks®, the QuakeCon volunteer staff, and the 2018 event sponsors and exhibitors.. This year’s event will offer diverse activities for all, including those who choose not to bring their own computer. Attendees are some of the first to see sneak peeks of Bethesda’s upcoming titles and announcements, while also attending a wide array of panels, presentations, tournaments, workshops and exhibits from leading tech companies showcasing the newest gaming accessories and hardware.
QuakeCon welcomes exhibitors and sponsors to showcase their games, hardware and services. For more information on how to get involved, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.quakecon.org/sponsorsandexhibitors.
