iSeries suggestion thread

Postby Unspecified on Wed Feb 08, 2012 1:14 pm

The numbers for the UKCS box at i46 are starting to fill up nicely now (23 booked in and at least 3 coming soon - more than i43 already!). The gigantic banner will be returning, we'll be livestreaming the box again, you can get your official UKCS tshirts etc and no doubt we'll find some more stickers from somewhere for i46.

But is there anything else that you can think of for us to do that would be good? i43 was pretty darn great for the first LAN that UKCS has attended in force, we hope you'll agree but we're looking to make i46 bigger and better. We're interested in any iSeries related ideas really - is there any information or guides you would like in advance? Anything we could do in or bring to the box? Any games/competitions/challenges we could run? Any Multiplay run events we should take part in? (Tournaments, Boat Race, Pub Quiz, ihunt etc)

There is plenty of time to have a think as i46 is still a while away, but please add anything that occurs to you. The two conditions to bear in mind are that 1) Any purchases needed have got to paid for from somewhere & 2) whilst we want to make i46 as great as possible for UKCS members in the box, we still want to be as opening and accessible as possible for others at the event and hopefully get some new faces involved :)

First tip, get Silent Image to come, for 2 reasons. First, as stated, he raised the cool factor of the box by a multiple of 20. Secondly, XBOX360 with SF4 and Fifa!

Great idea and well said (not about banning Trell though....hmm but then again ;P)!

It looks like my clan are finally getting themselves sorted so I'll be with them but it would be good to be able to check in with UKCS too in some way.

Breaking news: There will be a "Best TF2 hat" competition run. Last year was almost certainly won by I blame my Mother's "Towering pillar of towering pillar of hats": http://a2.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc7/301459_10150297923537410_182908062409_7824889_3087065_n.jpg

I'll be bringing a couple of hats with me this year. One I have had for years and another that I got on holiday a couple of years back. And both will be making the trek down to i46 with me. I'm not going to say what they are, you will just have to wait and see what I bring.
Saying that, we should all bring hats! Make it the UKCS Hat Clan Box!

Big screen for some console gaming would be nice, need permission to bring and plug in tho but they may make concessions for us as we are in a box. (press type box next to us had all sorts of shiz plugged in)

Huge thanks to Xerxes for the sig :)

I reckon it be quite cool if we had an inhouse (inclanbox?) gaming tournament of some kind.
The idea is we split all the players in the box (or, at least all the ones that want to take part) make them go into teams of at least 4 by randomly giving people teams, or allowing friends to recruit each other into teams and then play a random selection of games
Example.

Round 1:- TF2:-xvx CP_Badlands
Round 2:- CS:S/1.6 -xvx De_Dust2
Round 3:- DoD:S -xvx Whatever the best map is for competitive
Round 4:- L4D2 Versus Hospital (2 people)
Round 5: xvx Team Deathmatch/CTF/Clan Arena on Quake Live (Its free so it shouldn't be too much trouble to get people involved)

(Maybe my example has too many FPS' but you can easily swap games in and out depending on availability of everyone owning the game or the fact the game is free to play.)

The one with the most wins get crowned the UKCS Best all around Gamers with maybe some crappy cup from a £1 store that we can use for each year to give to the people that win the next years one :P

Would be pretty epic if you ask me :D

I would be up for an in house tournament - TF2 and DoD sounds like a top selection of games to go into that hat. :)

We could add League of Legends to that list. Get enough people interested in it and it could be interesting
