epic.TWELVE Big Game Timetable

epic12 GamesWith epic.TWELVE fast approaching, it's time for us to look at the big games and fun tournaments to keep you all busy through the event.

As always, we're keen to hear your suggestions, but remember for big games, we're looking at anything really over 16 players (you can sort smaller RTS/Co-Op type games amongst yourselves), and preferably reasonably cheap for people to pick up for the event.

Let us know your thoughts over on the forums!

epic.ELEVEN Big Games & Fun Tournaments

epic.ELEVEN TimetableWith epic.ELEVEN fast-approaching (a mere 9 weeks away), it's time to start putting together our timetable of big games and fun tournaments.

As usual, we will be compiling a programme of activities away from the prize-winning tournaments for people to take part in, you don't have to play in them, but it gives people a chance to enjoy some big games with as many of the other participants as possible, so go ahead and give your suggestions on our forums.

For our fun tournaments, we're probably going to run something on Minecraft again, as well as an FPS, Console and Racing game. And don't forget the epic.HUNT also returns this time for those looking for a more cryptic challenge.

Note that we don't schedule in smaller games, there's plenty of time for you to organise your own, so we're looking at about 16 players upwards for the big games,  we also don't schedule in the non-computer gaming stuff like board games, Werewolves etc. but there are tools like the TweetWall, forums, internal IRC all available to help you organise your own activities too.

 

epic.TEN - Timetable

epic.TEN TimetableHere's what you've all been waiting for, it's the epic.TEN timetable!

As well as things like opening times (bar and catering following shortly), the timetable also shows a range of big games and fun tournaments taking place throughout the event. As always, we've taken on board your feedback and added in some different games as well as keeping in the old favourites.

You'll notice that smaller games like RTS titles and the non-computer stuff like boardgames, werewolves etc. don't feature on the timetable. That's because we only schedule in the things that we're responsible for running and then that leaves you with plenty of time to do your own thing during the event. Of course you don't have to play everything in the timetable, it's just a guide to when we'll be putting up some big games for as many people as possible to enjoy.

So here is the epic.TEN timetable!

epic.TEN - Big Games & Fun Tournaments

epic.TEN TimetableIt's that time where we start looking at all the games to put in our big games timetable and to select 2-3 to run as fun tournaments throughout the weekend. We aim to put on 4-5 big games per day and announce that timetable in advance so people can make sure they have the games installed and updated ready to play.

So we're looking for your ideas for games that support at least 16+ players, preferably with LAN modes rather than online play where everyone can just pile in the server for a few hours of fun fragging.

With smaller RTS type games, these still get played, but we don't timetable them in as they are for smaller numbers of players and there's plenty of time in between the other big games (that's why we only put on 4-5 games per day to give you plenty of time to do your own thing too). Similarly, the non-PC games such as cards, werewolves, board games, we don't put those on the timetable as they're all things organised by the participants rather than us.

epic.EIGHT Timetable

epic.EIGHT Fun TimetableAfter reading through everybody's suggestions and keeping some of the usual old-favourites in, it's time to reveal the epic.EIGHT timetable!

Sadly we can't fit everybody's suggestions in, and we leave things like smaller RTS games and social games like Werewolves, 'Cards' etc. down to you all to play whenever you want a break from the normal timetable, but of course we will do shoutouts if you want to get people into those games, and you can also use IRC/Forums/Tweetwall to help. 

Make sure you grab the games (if you want to play them!) before the event, and get them all updated in advance.

epic.EIGHT - Fun Games Timetable

epic.EIGHT TimetableYes, it's that time in the run up to one of our LAN events where we start to look at our timetable of big games and fun tournaments!

epic.EIGHT is happening next month and it's looking like one of our biggest events yet, with spaces almost gone in Hall 1 already!

As usual we'll have plenty of activities, and here's where you tell us what sort of games you'd like to see. As before we'll have a few fun tournaments over a couple of game genres and a packed timetable of big games throughout the day and night, as well as the usual activities like our Pub Quiz.

So head on over to the forums and let us know what you'd like to see, we'll then get the timetable up so you can make sure you have all of the games included.
