BobLAN 2019.1 Roundup
Don't these weekends just fly by? Another great turnout from both ends of the country, and probably the earliest we've ever had 10 people present on the Thursday!

Tech-wise, not a massive amount of change. George swapped a graphics card and that was about it. No major rebuilds or breaches of change freeze, which was a first!

Game-wise, there was one newcomer which everyone loved:
  • Wreckfest - wow, what a fun game. Think Grid but where you are encouraged to try to take each other out :) Wreckfest Bus Last Straight Crash
  • Battlefield 1 - aside from some retarded tank driving and confused pigeons, this was fun but not as long-lived as last time.
  • CS:GO - once again the go-to game during breaks from other games. Still a firm favourite, and now free to own.
  • DiRT 3 - one game of Cat and Mouse only this time.
  • Rocket League - just the one tournament, which probably took a lot longer than it should :)
  • Titanfall 2 - still great fun.
  • Unreal Tournament - a great game of deathmatch with rocket launchers - very QuakeWorldesque.
  • DOOM - played for a short time, but UT is the winner of this genre.
  • Day of Defeat - we had a few good games on the bomb/defuse map Colmar - nice to see it back.
  • Board games - these seemed to replace Rockband for the late night fun.
Games we didn't play this time:
  • Darwin Project - very brief go, didn't have the appeal of when we played it a year ago.
  • GRID Autosport - ousted by Wreckfest this time.
  • Rockband - the neighbours will have been happy that there was little or no Rockband this time!
See the full game schedule over on the BobLAN 2019.1 page

Finally, massive thanks to Bob and Lynda for all the preparation and cleanup for which we are all incredibly grateful! (reminder to all those who attended - make sure you have paid up!)


BobLAN 2019.1 Begins
Yesterday was probably the best attended setup "night" yet, with around 12 people present. Setup included an eval of Wreckfest to see if it's worth the £15 asking price, and a go on the Danger Zone mode in CS:GO. Gaming included UT, Doom, CS:GO, Grid etc - a good start!


BobLAN 2019.1 This Week
The first gathering of 2019 will commence this Thursday, with the customary extended setup afternoon/evening. For those unable to attend in person, you can follow events and join in via the BobLAN 2019.1 page. The schedule will auto-update, and we'll do our best to keep the tweets flowing as we switch from game to game.


IEM Sydney 2019 Result
Following a tense decider in the best-of-five final, Team Liquid took the title against a superb Fnatic team. If you didn't manage to catch it live, there will be reruns on the ESL Twitch feed
