The largest Cincinnati area LAN party to date. A two day event from 10AM on Saturday the 17th till 4PM on Sunday the 18th of February. The location is the Drawbridge Inn Hotel and Conference Center off 71/75. The area we have secured is huge so tripping over everyone's stuff is not going to be a problem. The parking is free with over 900 spaces.
This party is going to rock! We have a bunch of stuff to give away again. We are having a custom trophy made for the 3on3 CTF UT Tourney. Each person on the winning team will receive one of these kickass trophies. Pizza is now being provided by Papa John's. We will also have snacks and 4 cases of Bawls for sale, so no going hungry or falling asleep. We will also be giving away a case of Bawls. Miami is piping in 300 amps of power for us, no blackouts at this party. You do not want to miss this party!
Thank you to everybody who contributed to making an amazing QuakeCon! Please let me know in the comments if you see your contribution to QuakeCon in this video and I will give you a shoutout... so many people people have a hand in making our Quake community great, and all deserve credit.
Come and find me in the DondeQ2 teeshirt from Thursday to Sunday QuakeCon and let's make a video of you answering my 3 questions... 1) How long have you been playing Quake? 2) How does playing Quake make you feel? 3) What's the best thing that ever happened to you from playing Quake? I have DondeQ2 postcards (while supplies last!) to thank folks willing to brave the video experience!
German Quake 2 scene in 1999 is explored, starting with the Voodoo People LAN Party, held at at VP-Nightmare's house in Fürth, July 16 - 18, 1999. Then we look at the Hude LAN Party and the GXP LAN Party, in Hagen. That was Europe's largest LAN party in 1999.
Paul Steed shared his QuakeCon '99 photos and summarized, "Whoohoo! How 'bout them Booth Babes! I think while they didn't exactly make the show, they didn't hurt it either. They had a great time and were genuinely fascinated by the scope of QuakeCon99. Thanks to that organization Fuh-Reak, Anna Kang and the support of all the diligent volunteers, no one can deny this was by far the best community event in a long time."
PlanetQuake's weekly advice column, "Dear Mynx," stripped away the hardware to take a peek at the personal lives of the people behind the game. Think of it as "Dear Abby" meets "Jenny Jones" meets "Quake II."
