Why come to Lanfall V5

Why come to Lanfall V5?

1. €7000 prize pool

If you mean business in the competitions, we also do. Have a look at our prizes on the compo’s & prizes page: https://www.lanfall.be/compos/

 

2. The complete LAN experience … and more

With €7000 worth of compo prizes, a professionaly equiped kitchen and bar, over 280 gamers, the presence of Gamegear, Speedseats, a VR booth, 3 playstations in a lounge setup, a logical choice of popular compo’s, … all put together by a young and enthousiastic crew, there’s your complete LAN experience.

The experience of our crew and the equipment that we use is also a guarantee for a LAN-party without any electrical or network related failures.

What’s more?

We try to differentiate ourselves by organizing more than “just” a LAN-party. The tent that is immediately connected with the main gaming hall gives us and you possibilities:

  • Professional and big kitchen
  • Big bar with screens and a lot of cash registers
  • Tables and seats where you can chill in a relaxing environment
  • 3 playstations
  • Saturday evening DJ (of course we will make sure to not influence the atmosphere in the main gaming hall)
  • VR booth (did you know that you as a participant and everyone who visits can win a Speedseat? Read more about it in this article: https://www.lanfall.be/vr-booth-year-everyone-can-participate-chance-win-speedseat/
  • Live football streaming
  • Foosball table (this is also a fun compo, more info: https://www.lanfall.be/compos/)
  • Nothing else going on in the main gaming hall except for gaming

This year we are also focusing on more fun compo’s. You don’t need to go home or be bored when you are done with the compo’s that you have participated in, because there’s a lot more to participate in and to win. Check out our fun a.k.a. bronze compo’s on the compo’s and prizes page: https://www.lanfall.be/compos/

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. We strive to improve and care about the experience of our participants

We’ve come a long way since the first edition of Lanfall and last year was the biggest step we have taken so far by moving to the new and bigger venue in Aartrijke. We invested a lot in scaling up and adding to the experience, but obviously there is always room for improvement. Because we care a lot about how our participants experience Lanfall, we spend a whole year on thinking on what we can do better and what can be improved the next time. Here’s a list with changes that will make your Lanfall V5 experience: https://www.lanfall.be/learned-mistakes-things-will-improved-year/

 

4. The food, it is damn good!

Certainly not the least important factor during a good LAN-weekend: food! We value the quality of everything that leaves our kitchen. This year has been all about analyzing the menu, the quality and having a professional and improved way of working. We will also have an additional display this year where you will be able to follow promotions.

AND… Breakfast will this year be available without pre-ordering, freshly baked in our own kitchen!

Find out the entire menu together with the economical Lanfall prizes on this page: https://www.lanfall.be/food-drinks-other-stuff/

Oh we also organized a test and taste day together with the catering-part of our crew. Here are some pictures of the actual food we have made that day – hopefully you’re not too hungry when reading this 🙂

 

4. We’re here to stay

Already the fifth edition of our awesome LAN and we keep growing in all possible ways! We hope to see you in October and in all the years to come!

Extra prijs voor de winnaars van de kicker fun-compo!

 

Een last-minute toevoeging aan onze prijzenpot: de winnaars van de kicker fun-compo krijgen bovenop de 2 bakken Duvel nog eens 2 bonnen met een waarde van elk 20 euro om lekker te gaan eten in De Kluze in Torhout!

 

Only two weeks before the end of the regular ticket sales

 

 

The “fall” part of “Lanfall” is becoming very present this time of the year and this means only one thing: it’s almost there!

Ticket sales are picking up, but do realize that there are only two weeks left to get your regular Lanfall V5 ticket.

Why would I buy my ticket one month before Lanfall V5 starts? Here’s why.

Why buy your ticket before the end of September?

1. BECAUSE IT’S 5 EURO’S CHEAPER PER TICKET COMPARED TO WHEN YOU WOULD BUY THEM IN OCTOBER!!!

For the next two weeks, you can still get your Lanfall V5 ticket at the regular ticket price of €35. Starting from the first of October, you will pay €5 more for each ticket at the late buyer price of €40.

Here’s some math for you.

Let’s say you’re willing to compete for some nice prizes at a LAN-party with 5 friends and you’re sure that it will be Lanfall (the “Why Lanfall?” part can be read underneath), but for some unexplainable reason, you decide to postpone your ticket purchase until 2 weeks before the event actually starts.

5 x €5 more per ticket = €25 you just payed too much by procrastinating! At the non-criminal rate of €1.7 per beer, that’s 14.7 beers that just vanished from your bank account for absolutely no reason. 14.7 beers. Writing this article hurts… 🙂

2. Because the earlier you get your ticket, the more places to choose from on our seatmap

Still plenty of room left (for now…) : https://www.lanfall.be/seatmap/

3. Because organizing a LAN-party of this scale isn’t easy and the earlier our tickets get sold, the more credit can go to you when the event succeeds

Please do realize that we are only volunteers with one goal: organize an awesome gaming weekend with nice prizes every year and create an unforgettable experience. This asks for a lot of money even before the events starts and we are thankful for every ticket that sells. The earlier we have tickets going out the door, the lower the chance that we will have to drain our own pockets in order to be able to organize Lanfall.

You can get your tickets here: https://www.lanfall.be/tickets/

 

So we can give you a bunch of reasons on why you should get your Lanfall V5 ticket now, but if you were still in doubt about actually buying a ticket, then we should also give a couple of reasons that should stop the doubting.

4. We’re here to stay

Already the fifth edition of our awesome LAN and we keep growing in all possible ways! We hope to see you in October and in all the years to come!

We learned from our mistakes – these are the things we that will be improved this year

 

Last year was the first edition in the new, bigger venue in Aartrijke. After 3 editions in the small hall in Zedelgem, we were completely in sync with that place and after all the struggles and difficulties, everything was going perfect. Then we decided that it was the perfect time to move forward and take Lanfall to a new level in a new and bigger location. That all sounded very promising, but we had to start completely from 0 again and everything that we had learned in the first 3 editions in Zedelgem, didn’t matter anymore.

First of all, something that’s very positive as we were praying for those things to go well for the first time in the bigger venue, internet and electricity were perfect. There was one minor electricity-incident, but we don’t have control over random exploding computers… 🙂

Although it was a great edition and we realized that we made a good choice by moving to this new location, there were some issues during the weekend that we didn’t foresee and (we are very aware of that) have frustrated our gamers (and they had all good reasons to be frustrated).

Broken down toilets, wristbands that didn’t work, not enough sleeping space, the main gaming hall was very cold after some of the gamers left when they couldn’t compete for prizes anymore, long waiting lines at the bar, playstations that were occupied by visitors when they were needed for the FIFA compo, …

We were able to address most of the issues right away (calling an external company at 2 o’ clock in the morning and asking them to deliver mobile toilets immediately was probably the craziest thing we had to do), but still, it was not okay for those things to happen during the weekend, not for us, not for you.

Afterwards we looked into all the issues that we experienced and talked everything through. This is what we learned and we’ll be doing differently this year:

Facilities
– Bigger tent
– Separate sleeping space in next door building with more than enough space for everyone
– Shower possibilities
– More (and working 🙂 ) toilets
– Heating for the main gaming hall (hired, not running on electricity and placed outside – no noise or smell)
– Larger compo desk
– An additional playstation
– Controllers will be kept by the crew at the bar – no more random people jumping on “free” playstations
– Secluded VR booth
– The awards stand will be placed differently in a way that there will be more room and making it easier for people leaving the main hall to pass by the crowd
– New and bigger parking area at 100m walk from the venue where everyone can leave his / her car. It’s possible to drop off gear at the venue direclty before parking of course

Catering
– Wrist bands that you can actually use your money from 🙂
– Breakfast available immediately (freshly baked in our own kitchen) without ordering
– Pasta!
– Big screen above the bar where we will display promotions
– An additional cash register (orders and payments will be handled quicker)
– Updated kitchen with a more efficiënt (thought through and tested) way of working – in short: you’ll get your food quicker

In the first place we are writing this post to address the people that were there last year and had the patience to let us deal with those issues. We are very thankful for all of your trust and we hope that this list of improvements will convince you to return to Lanfall for the 5th edition and help us to make this one the best edition so far! We also want to let possible new contestants know that we care about our gamers and that we do not take these issues for granted.

Thank you for understanding the fact that we are a growing group of volunteers who are still learning and the only thing we want is that our gamers can have the best LAN experience they can imagine. We hope to welcome you (again) at Lanfall V5!

 

We have a VR booth this year in which everyone can participate and have the chance to win a Speedseat!

 

Thanks to the support of Gemeente Zedelgem, we are able to organize an extra event during Lanfall V5 together with them: everyone (meaning also visitors which can visit Lanfall for free) can come and play the game in our Virtual Reality booth and have the chance to win a Speedseat!

For those who don’t know Speedseats: Speedseats are comfortable gaming chairs and are the best in its kind. Discover them and find out more on their website: https://www.speedseats.eu/.

In short: play a game in our virtual reality booth for free and you might just be the one to receive the free Speedseat at the end of Lanfall V5 that we are giving away together with Gemeente Zedelgem!

In detail:

  • What does it cost? Absolutely nothing! Participating is free and available for everyone, including visitors which can visit Lanfall V5 for free during the entire weekend.
  • Where will I find the VR booth? In the big white Lanfall tent that is standing next to the sports hall of Aartrijke (Zedelgem).
  • When can I play this game? During the entire weekend of 20 – 22 October at every possible hour.
  • When will the Speedseat be given away? At the end of Lanfall V5 (5 PM 22 October). There will be another surprise coming up about how we will be giving away the Speedseat. You will find out more soon!
  • Will I be spammed with e-mails and other things like that after I participated? Nope, we don’t have the time for that 🙂 🙂
  • What’s the game that we can play in the VR booth? This will be announced later on, stay tuned and make sure to save the date already!
