I think there is a lot of Day-After-Christmas-Syndrome in effect here. We were all on top of the world over the weekend. Now our emotions are dropping to normal levels and it is kind of depressing.
Im sorry to read that people were so dissapointed. Especially when they were expressing to my face in person... just how much fun they had had. What's dissapointing to me is that the LAN PARTY is now tainted and spoilt because opinions were not voiced at the event.. and instead posted in a thread after the fact.
Personally... Id tell Prime to not bother next year. Party @ Primes.. wanna game.. bring your laptop.
Again... this weekend is tarnished ... a real shame.
This is why I have taken your comments to heart & find it extremely depressing that I was so unapproachable as a site owner in person and instead I was so approachable as a half drunk, loud Englishman.. and no one could say that a little help in focusing the gaming was needed.
But no one said this at the event. Brian was extremely rushed off hist feet being the host. No one could pulled me aside and said "look Dan, Im having alot of fun but the gaming is not happening".

Im as much as responsible as anyone else. Coming 7000+ miles is not an excuse to not accept responsibility for the organisation of an event held in honour of the site I co-own with Brian.
This was a horrible thread when it started and it getting worse with every post. This event now sounds like alot of people had a bad time or were dissapointed. None of which showed when they were here. Shame.

It was a social event... It had little to do with leadership or organization. Those who wanted to game gamed, and those who wanted to socialize had a drink on the back porch....

Q, if you perceived 2 out of 40 people to have been disappointed by part of the event, I hardly see why that justifies having a row about it and posting "event cancelled" in a bunch of threads to rub it in. My goodness.
The LAN party needs to cater to everyone, and this year didn't.
THREE FRICKING KITTENS WERE BIRTHED UNDER MY BED THIS WEEKEND WITHOUT ME KNOWING ABOUT IT
