Hey Big Shot Gamers -

Sorry for the spam, but we wanted to post this in an effort to try to get information out there. One of our past attendees, Matthew German aka deerinheat, has gone missing and has been missing since July 18. If you're in the Central Michigan area, please keep an eye out for him - and if you see him or have knowledge of his whereabouts, let the authorities know.

Big Shot Gamers!

Final warning - this weekend's event has been CANCELLED due to lack of interest. Please don't show up at Finch Fieldhouse on Friday, because we won't be there.

Credit card refunds have all been processed by our staff; if you haven't already seen a credit on your paying card, it could take up to 3-5 more days. If you have special circumstances that you haven't informed us about, PLEASE email us directly - bigshot@bigshotgaming.com.

Hey Big Shot Gamers -

Unfortunately, due to lack of interest and the resulting extreme financial pressure that we'd be put under, we've had to cancel the upcoming MegaLAN. If you paid for the event, you will receive a refund within 7-10 days of this posting back to the credit card that you paid with - if you've got special circumstances (i.e., you used a prepaid card or something like that), please email us directly - bigshot@bigshotgaming.com.

We've had a great time hosting ...events for you, and we've made a lot of friends! We're sorry that things had to go this way, but we'd much rather cancel the LAN than host an event that wouldn't be a lot of fun. Thanks for sticking with us through all these years!

Hey Everyone! Sorry about the message earlier regarding the potential cancellation of the next MegaLAN. The message you received was bouncing around a few of our admins, but when we discussed it at our last meeting we decided it was in bad taste and that it gave the wrong impression. We are still working as hard as possible to make this event a triumph!

To make it up to you we would like to offer some transparency into the discussion we had regarding event finances and t...he current risk factor of running the event. Most of the admins decided that we are a little behind where we should be at this point, but the history of our events tell us that we are on track to pulling this off:

https://docs.google.com/…/1CMMKKy4jZB9n6Zm-lWVwyTC4NNTWdZBx…

That being said it really does help us out if you register as soon as you can as that means we can get warm fuzzies that the event will be paid for when its all said and done and that we can go buy more prizes!

Please register ASAP https://www.bigshotgaming.com/events/register/10/

One other thing that helps us is for you to register for the tournaments that you will be playing in. Please sign up for those while you're on our site soaking the web standards of 2008!

Big Shot Gamers!

We've got some bad news: it's with a heavy heart that we must announce we're at risk of canceling upcoming event.

Unfortunately, as a completely independent LAN hosting group, we depend on our ticket sales to cover the costs of running our events. As you're probably well aware, venues are getting more expensive, and sponsorships are becoming more difficult to acquire. If we don't sell at least 100 more seats by March 31, we will be forced to cancel the event... and refund all existing signups; we simply cannot afford to run the event without those sales.

If you (or someone you know!) were waiting to sign up, now's the time to grab your seat! We can still make this thing happen, but we need your help.

Sincerely,
The Big Shot Gaming Admin team.

Awesome news everyone! Ronimo Games donated some licenses for their side-scrolling, Saturday-morning-cartoon-themed, awesome MOBA Awesomenauts! We will be giving them out at the LAN and will be hosting a free-play tournament for anyone interested (they gave us enough licenses to host a small tournament)!

Hey Big Shot Gamers!

If you are looking for a place to crash at any point during the event, the Super 8 just down the road from where we'll be has been kind enough to offer us a discount on rooms.

As of right now, we have 6 rooms on reserve until March 20. All you have to do is call, tell them you're with Big Shot Gaming, mention the CMU alumni discount, and you're in.

...

After the 20th, the discount will still be available, but rooms will be a first come, first serve basis. So, book now!

Hey, Big Shot Gamers.

Every LAN, we strive to put on the best show we can for you guys, whether it's fixing things from the year previous, or by adding something new and exciting.

So, to kick off our appreciation for those sponsors, we'd like to say a huge thanks to BAWLS Guarana & SilverStone Technology, our first Sponsors for the MegaLan XVII. Thanks guys, you rock!

It's that time again - the time where you help us pick out the games that are gonna be featured at our next LAN party! The gaming survey for our upcoming MegaLAN XVII is open 'til December 17, so get your votes in and get counted!
bigshotgaming.com

Hey Big Shot Gamers -

Great news! We've finally come to a decision on which tournaments we're going to have - we were initially going to have three flagship tournaments, but we decided that one game needed to be our main focus this LAN, and we've picked that game!

League of Legends will be our flagship tournament at the next LAN!

...

We'll also have StarCraft II, CS:GO, and Super Smash Bros. Wii U as other featured tournaments (albeit with less prizes and less glory), and of course we'll be making sure to have some great organized freeplay to help ensure everyone has a good time at the upcoming MegaLAN XVII.

Thanks for all your voting, and just so you know, registration will be opening up early next year!
