All posts for the month February, 2009

Warfactory is proud to announce its support of Webster-Strike, the Webster University Computer Club’s first LAN effort.  We are contributing networking equipment, servers, and of course our years of experience to make this effort a success.

The Details:

  • Webster University Campus
  • March 29, 2009
  • Pricing – Webster Student – $10/Others $15
  • For Info and Registration:

For you Warfactory guys out there … there is limited BYOC seating available (up to about 30-40 seats) so if you want to attend, make sure you register now!  Also, Warfactory will be happy to manage your own tournaments … if you want to bring your teams and compete please contact us asap!

Looking forward to this one and remember, if you want your own event Warfactory is there to help!

A number of people have asked me lately, “When’s the next Warfactory Event?”  Well … we’re working on it and need your help!  Obviously with the recession, things are harder but here’s how you can help bring the next wave of LANs to the area:

  • First off, we’ve prepared a short survey which will help us to retool.  If you’ve got a few minutes, please click here to fill out our LAN Party Survey … this will give us important information to cater to your needs as gamers!
  • Second, we will be working with the Webster University Computer Club to help them with their first-ever LAN.  This will be held on March 29th, and more details will soon be provided.  You can see their website here.  This is DIRT CHEAP guys, and Warfactory is providing all the equipment and expertise to run a great LAN.  Everyone is invited, so let’s fill the house!
  • Finally, the thing that we want to express to the entire St. Louis Community (and even beyond) is that Warfactory is here to help.  Want to run your own LAN at your High School, College, or University?  We have a “turn key” solution and can make that dream a reality.  You provide the space and power and we’ll build a great LAN together!  If you need a webpage, we can even help to provide you with one (free of charge if you qualify) so you can put up a site for your LAN (you have to have your own domain, of course!).

These are hard economic times guys, but there is nothing better than getting together with a group of your friends and gaming all day and night on LAN.  Warfactory has held St. Louis’s BEST LANs for 10 years now and we will continue despite the recession.   We just need you to help keep the great events coming!

Thanks to Jacob Chaney of Webster University we have a pretty cool video about the event.  This was done as a school project with an interview, hence me talking a lot. History aside, there’s a lot of good shots of those of you who attended and best of all Chee’s soon-to-be-famous “shut down a bomb site” speech at the end.

Thanks Jacob, and of course all of you who attended Warfactory 2008. Let’s hope gas isn’t $4.00 a gallon come time for the next LAN!
