I gotta few Q:'s and this is from what I can see the best place I've Found yet to join and ask questions and actually get feedback. I run a Lan center in Akron,OH - Gaming / Lan W/E.... Im trying to bring some new gamers in and advertise the right games on the site to help do this. #1: Our forums are DEAD and I dont know why... So our own forums are not a big help here...

When you LAN GAME / or even network game INET. ... What Do you like better? Are some games better than others on LAN, vs Net like BF2 do to huge bandwidth usages???..

FPS/RTS/ Ect..... What are the can I do to help the Lan grow???? Not only do we need People, I need new Idea's.. Comments welcomed!!!!!!

All the best, Knoppix :confused:

Run a competition.. Like a tournament 10 bux to get in money to top 3 finishers. <----For individual Then for teams 50 bux entry per team, winning team takes all. As of games, there's always BF2, CS, CS:S, DOD, you know the popular ones...

Meh! FPS For the win! CSS, BF2 with lots of people will own! CSS is great for 15-20 people. BF2 is great for 30+!

For a more teamwork and realistic game try Joint Operations. I played the coop once LAN and it was so bloody good. You all sit together assign a sqaud leader and take out the good AI!!! And you all travel around like a family in a Blackhawk or a hummer or drive the hummer into a chinook, whatever you want.

I attend LAN parties regularly, I might be able to give you a few tips. If you're going for more than 10 players, you'll probably want to charge for entry - say $50 per person. Once you have this, subtract the money that you have spent on the venue/food/drink/etc from the total, and combine the rest to have as a tournament prize. Secondly, you need to have a varied games selection. I find that RTS games and FPS shooters go down well - Games like Half-Life/HL2, Far Cry, UT2004, C&C Generals and SWAT4 are generally very popular.
