Welcome to LanVictims

LanVictims is a Brisbane based LAN which focuses on the social aspect of LANs.

LanVictims aims to provide an environment that is fun for everyone, regardless of their skill. While competitions exist at LanVictims, the focus is on playing the game, not winning the game.


Just a reminder to everyone about the photos gallery. In it you can find photos from previous LANs including the one last weekend.

A big thanks to everyone who was involved in running the LAN. I had a good time and it went very smoothly. If you helped set up, pack up, brought a console or yourself, thank you, you all helped make another successful LanVictims LAN.

I'm planning the next one for late March/early April.

Why do all of my posts start with "after another long break..."

After another long break it's time for another LV. The reason for the large gap (since September) was that I was busy organising and participating in my wedding. Now that that's all done we've organised another lan.

Here's the details:
Date: Saturday 28th February 2009
Time: 10.30am - approx 10pm
Venue: Newmarket Bowls Club, 212 Ashgrove Ave, Ashgrove, Brisbane, QLD 4060
Cost: Still only $10 or $12 (unregistered)

Make sure that you register for the LAN!

There'll be plenty of TF2, Left4Dead, COD4, BaboViolent, War3 Custom Maps and anything else that people want to play!

Last LAN we tried running a swear jar to try and cut down on the amount of (loud) swearing. It worked really well so we'll do being it again. To enforce this we will be running a "swear jar" system, where at the Admin's discretion you will be warned that you are swearing far too much. If you continue to swear too much (at the Admin's discretion) you will be required to contribute $1 to the "swear jar". Future offences after the first $1 will increase in the amount ($2, $3, $4 per offence etc.) that you will be required to pay. You will get a warning before you need to pay, but the warning won't last very long. If you keep swearing you will need to pay money. Hopefully you'll start to decide that it gets too expensive to swear.

I will repeat:
If you swear too much (decided by the Admin's) you will end up having to pay a progressively increasing amount of money. So please, don't swear.

I will repeat again:
Don't swear (loudly), you will end up having to pay (eventually lots) of money.

See you all on the 28th!

After another long break the next LanVictims has been set.

Details are:
Date: Saturday 6th September 2008
Time: 10.30am - approx 10pm
Venue: Newmarket Bowls Club, 212 Ashgrove Ave, Ashgrove, Brisbane, QLD 4060
Cost: Still only $10 or $12 (unregistered)

Make sure that you register for the LAN!

See you all on the 6th!

Just a quick update to say that the next LanVictims is being planned. So stay tuned.

Just a reminder to everyone to make sure you update your Steam before the LAN and make sure you set it to run in Offline mode.

I also recently played a game called Zombie Master which is a LOT of fun and I plan on playing again this Saturday. If you can install it before the LAN that would be good, otherwise, please make sure that you have Source SDK Base installed otherwise the game won't work properly.

If anyone has tried to register for the LAN (and hence the forums) but haven't received a confirmation email, please email me at with your forum username and I'll fix you up. Our webserver is having problems with sending emails currently, so you probably won't receive your confirmation email for the forums, or for the LAN. Just show up to the LAN if you're in doubt.

See everyone on Saturday!
