    how couuld we do a TPU lan party? honestly that'd be fun as hell i think and awesome if we could find a location for USA members to come together and bring friends etc. Shit i'd even be down to throw money towards it as i'm sure it'd need it since we'd have to rent out a building or something wouldn't we? hmmm but then this is just a cool idea haha

    I'm afraid to go to a big LAN. I'd bring friends and we'd take turns watching each other's stuff when we had to take a pee. If all my friends had gaming PCs and I had a warehouse, I'd just invite them over. lol

    Sounds like a lot of fun, I've never been to a Lan, I don't think its my type of thing, I geek out a lot at home but when I leave the house I like to be energetic.

    That being said it would be cool to meet up with some of the local TPU people!

    I've never been to a Lan. Maybe because I'm 31 and lan parties started way after I discovered pu......women?

I would love to go to one like you did, cause you theres gotta be someone there has to have the same game...... so many wasted hours finding who had what and where?!? :eek:

    Im in arkansas, we dont have many... someone said there are some in texas, where are they and when? Or missouri, i'd go to missouri for one. It'd be awesome if we could get one set up there somewhere, Flyordie and Fitseries. Id be there in a second!

    EDIT: oh i just realized Arkansas Lan is coming up soon. Oct 17th. 15$ prepay. Pizza included. Its in Hot springs at the convention center, which is a HUGE place. Unfortunately no alcohol allowed... but there are taverns all over, its a resort/tourist town. Any of you guys in texas or missouri want to come? It would be awesome to meet people from TPU!

    When I was young (early teens lol) we had small lan parties sometimes.. Only like 10 guys or so, but that's ok. The perfect lan is 4 or 5 GOOD friends though.

    I'm seriously thinking about going to a Dreamhack sometime though.. The hold one every year just one hour from where I live.

    alcohol is a big no no at lans.

    you ever meet a CSS kiddie, the kind that rage, smack their screens, slam the fists on the desk every time someone kills them? yeah, imagine them drunk.
