    It's over a year since we last had an RTS day - how would people feel about giving that a run again?

    Also regarding other events, there will be a Glasgow LAN at 1LevelUp on 28th-29th March, of which I'll be doing 5 games on the 29th in the evening. League of Legends tends to feature a lot the rest of the time, so if that's your thing you should jump along.

    Also, aiming to have the next Kustom LAN on April 27th.

    An RTS day sounds good!

    I'm not sure if it counts, but I've been playing A LOT of Dota 2 recently and I'd love to bring it against some fellow LANers. ; )

    As this is a bit of a suggestion thread, can I go ahead and point out that Orion: Dino Horde is frickin' amazing? Nooit-Sterf and myself have been playing it recently and it would fit into an FPS LAN (or maybe even a prehistoric LAN?) very well. It has jetpacks and tanks and T-Rexes and lightsabers! It's a definite buy if it goes on sale again: http://store.steampowered.com/app/104900/?snr=1_7_15__13

    Yes RTS is a must and Dota 2 is a brilliant suggestion. and what do you think about Supreme Commander?
    Will be able to come and on the 27-28th. and maybe bring another with me.

    I've got SupComm, great game. : ) In the past we've played things like Dawn of War and Company of Heroes.

    Yes, please do come along! It's always nice to have new attendees! : )

    RTS - as usual I'll sit this out

    1LevelUP - a bit more info would be good other than 28-29 March. Maybe post a link.

    Kustom PCs LAN next - 27th April, sounds good, I may have recovered from i51 by then.

    Just to point out that the LAN in April will only be a 1 day LAN, 28th is a Monday and Easter weekend is the weekend before.

    I expect more details will follow on 1LevelUp's FB page, (https://www.facebook.com/LevelUpGlasgow?fref=ts) but I think they've really just said to their 'regulars' so far and will be posting more nearer the time.

    Typically it's turn up and do as you like, I'm just doing a spot on the Saturday night (likely Warsow, Armagetron, Golf?, Gun Game, Blur). If you've already been / going to Kustom LAN you won't miss anything, but there's a popular LoL following up there, so worth going to if you're into that :)

    ---

    Sunday 23rd could be a good day for RTS - games tend to be a bit too long to squeeze many into an evening, so a longer day may be better, something like noon - 9pm? As always, game suggestions are good, anything cheap or popular is a good bet. Last times we used Starcraft 2, DOTA 2, Dawn of War, Age of Empires Online.

    Only thing against DOTA 2 last time, I think only 1 or 2 people that attended were 'into' it, which didn't really lead to the greatest game with just carrying a bunch of newbies, obviously if we can get a few people along who are versed in the game all the better :)

    Will start thread on RTS LAN soon.

    ---

    FPS Evening or Day will be happening in May. Either an evening with a few games, or a full day and including a trip to lazer quest as well.

    Just in case anyone from here was planning to visit the Glasgow 1LU event, it's been cancelled / postponed for the moment, something about their landlord not keen on the overnight gaming event. May well be back in the future.

    Sorry for absence of further plans on next Kustom Theme events, I am utterly, utterly swamped with work just now, day and night, so not getting the chance to do anything with the LANs right but I'll do my best to catch up on that soon. Although the aim was to do the next big LAN at end of April anyway, so that may well be the next one.

    Don't worry, dude! We're surviving!

    Just concentrate on work and we'll be sure to hit up the next event as soon as you've got the time to spare. End of April certainly suits me! : )

    P.S. Metal's the genre typically paired with the FPS games, right? Well, I hereby request this gets played during ALL FPS games: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WIKqgE4BwAY. Thrash metal meets J-Pop. (^_^)

    Since this now has a launch date (April 1st), I think the next theme night should be purely dedicated to this

    I can't wait for Bear Simulator as well. It'll be just like listening to Gordy playing League of Legends...
