UKCS at Insomnia Minisite - UKCS.net/iseries

Postby Xerxes on Fri Mar 02, 2012 11:12 pm

UKCS is proud to announce a brand new minisite dedicated to all things to do with the Insomnia gaming festival, and UKCS' attendance at it. We're ultra excited about this new site because it gives us a chance to show everyone just how much fun iSeries events are and to give the members that we have with us at them a chance to tell everyone about their experiences. Never heard of Insomnia before? Don't worry - there's loads of information on the site that we're still adding to. In a nutshell, Insomnia is the UK's largest gaming festival, with over 2500 players gathering to celebrate gaming and to play over the course of 5 days.

Got a question that's not answered already? Feel free to ask on the forums or send an email to LAN@UKCS.net - we'll do our best to answer!

We'll be updating the site as we get news and other relevant things, as well as coverage of UKCS real life events alongside the coverage that UKCS members will be putting up too. On top of that, we'll be updating the new social media accounts with the information too - Facebook.com/UKCS.LAN, Twitter.com/UKCS_LAN and the new UKCS@LAN Steam group.

For more information just head over to UKCS.net/iseries

ROFL @ the amount of kan facepalms
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.

Quick update, we've been talking to Agro and Tempest from KritzKast and all the posts and content they make about the iSeries events will now syndicate directly onto the UKCS iSeries site, as well as them adding content directly to the site too!

Updates from KritzKast will appear at http://ukcs.net/iseries/kritzkast/. :)

Top Banana Xiggy! Any chance we could get a similar thing for VTV? I suppose there must be similar things for CS:S etc?

Noooooooooooooo! Looks like I've left it too late (forgot), and won't be in the main clanbox with all the cool people.

Oh well, better late than never. Booked my ticket today (you should have mail from Paypal, Xerxes).

I believe the plan is to split the UKCS people over the two boxes so that people don't get left out. Although, I might be wrong on this :x

You'll never be a cool kid Rico :P

I wouldn't worry, we will only be next door and the bar is not far away. As Mittins said, I dont know if the clanboxes are all finalised yet so all is well.

Yay for Rico :cheers:

Rest assured, we'll just kick Mittins out so the cool kids can come in. ;)

In all seriousness, we're going to make sure that UKCS members are fairly distributed - it won't be a case of Clanbox 1 with 32 UKCS players and a second with 3 in. Just won't happen. :)
