Yeah they like to do that as apparently when they have it on a Bank Holiday more people tend to go (as it involves taking fewer days off work etc

Accomodation information has been released: http://insomniagamingfestival.com/accommodation/

On site rooms are £50 a night, but you can put lots of people in there apparently. They are hoping to run a shuttle bus service to the other ones but schedules not confirmed yet.

The rooms for i51 listed on that page can be booked from 10am on Thursday 2nd January 2014. If you want on site i would have your alarm set for 9.59...

Just wondering, is anyone making plans to attend this one? I've already got the holiday booked for i51 and i52. Saving up my beer money as of now. My main concern at this point is that very thing. Hopefully they don't increase prices considering it's a football stadium.

D: What have they done
This is my sandvich. There are many others like it, but this one is mine. My sandvich is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my sandvich is useless. Without my sandvich, I am useless. I must eat my sandvich true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy, who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will. Before lunch I swear this creed: my sandvich and myself are defenders of my country, we are the masters of our enemy, we are the saviors of my life. So be it, until there is no enemy, but sandvich. Om nom.

we'll have to see the reports from i51 to see if the event centre can support this.

Given what happened last year, I have a feeling that things are going to be more strict this time around. If not from the organisers, definitely from the attendees.

multiplay have been stressing that due to the layout of this place (4 levels) etc its going to be much easier to keep the day visitors separate from the LANers - it will be in different parts of the building. In fact i think that visitors will not automatically be allowed into the main halls either - there will be a wrist band check.

Lets see how it goes at i51 :)

I hope and Multiplay did seem to have taken notice from the feedback the organisation of this will be allot better.
The venue still has to proof itself tho and with the Summer LAN being the biggest LAN of them all it really is one hell of a test (especially since MP are king at underestimating pretty much everything)!

If during this LAN were getting a box once again we should be able to avoid most of it (which I hope and suspect will be the case) like last year I will be happy enough. Just let the food and booz be delivered. ;) :P
Also a 4 person tent for me alone did not hurt. ;)
