What to bring with you to LanCraft

kara22nd July 2015 at 10:00

LanCraft 2015 preparations are culminating. Tomorrow, the lanparty will open gates to the first visitors. And there will be many. Especially for LanCraft first timers we have prepared a ckeck list.

What to bring and not forget?

A must is ofcourse PC with screen, or any other calculator that can run your game and has an ethernet slot. Do not foget your own peripheries - headphones, mouse, keyboard and mouse pad because the tables are not an optimal gaming surface. If you are planning on spending the night in LanCraft premises, be sure to bring your own sleeping bag & pad.

Do not forget to bring your own ethernet cable. In the past, we have provided the connection to the online world for every player. This year´s event have outgrown our possibilities and we must follow in the steps of the mother of all lanparties, Dreamhack. Therefore, we kindly ask players, to bring their own ethernet cable,. The lenght depends on your spot. Switches will be placed in the middle of every row of tables. If your spot is at the end of the row, you will need atleast 10m of cable.  We still reccomend this lenght even for other spots, just to be sure.

UTP cables will be available for purchase at the event itself.

 

  • ID
  • PC
  • Screen
  • Gaming peripheries
  • UTP cable  (ideally 10m)
  • sleeping utilities

P.S. We highly recommend not to download torrents, bring virus or perform any other suspicious activity on the net, Do not forget, that we see everything and there is no place to hide  :)

What else can you bring?

There will be showers available at LanCraft premises. It is on your own consideration to use them accordingly. 

It is quite a good idea, to consider form of catering. There will be a fully equipped bar, which will offer, aside from the usual sortiment, tasty pizzas. If you do not find any of these forms of catering appealing, you are free to bring your own food. 

What not to bring?

It is useless to bring power cord extensions. They will be available for every player (We shoot people for power cords with safety switch since 2012). Do keep from bringing your own electronics like hairdryer, cofee maker, kettle, etc. There is a strict prohibition of playing music from speakers, so do not waste space of your luggage.

  • Power cord extensions
  • Electronics (kettle, microwave oven, blowdryer and another electricity thieves)
  • Speakers
