epic.LAN - Fun UK LAN Gaming at its Best

epic.TWO Over Half Full

67 of you have now secured your seats for epic.TWO so we're now over half full!

There are still over 80 days left until epic.TWO and bookings have only been open for a few weeks so we're well on track for a full house for the event.

epic.TWO takes place from Thursday 23rd July to Sunday 26th July, starting 4pm Friday and finishing 4pm Sunday.

We've got loads planned for epic.TWO including our treasure hunt, pub quiz, fun tournaments, WTFBBQ and a world of BIG games!

Book now to secure your place at epic.TWO!

Website Improvements & Vouchers

We've introduced a number of improvements to the epic.LAN website that improve both the presentation of information and the booking process. The changes include:

  • Addition of an event overview block to the front screen, so you can instantly see the next event and how many people are going.
  • Addition of a voucher payment system. This now allows you to buy a ticket (and all the associated services) for somebody else, pick the seat, and then to pass that ticket on to their account. This service is really useful for groups of people attending whether as friends, clans etc. who want to organise their seating and payments all in one go.

Further improvements to the website will be coming soon, watch this space for more details!

epic.TWO Promo Vid

If you weren't at epic.ONE or are just salivating for more epic.LAN gaming, we've cut together a promo video to whet your appetite!.

Do you want a piece of this action? If so, all you need to do is book and pay for epic.TWO now and your place will be confirmed! There's just a few days left to secure your place at the special discounted rate of £35, so book now!

Have you got skills...

News...in writing or graphics?

If so, you may be interested in an upcoming project from the team at epic.LAN.

We're looking for a few people with a bit of a creative side who are good at writing news/review type articles or with basic design skills for something new as part of what we offer from epic.LAN.

Unfortunately there's no payment in it, but it will give people the chance to put something back into the community and also gain experience that would be useful for those looking to go into journalism or the IT/games industry at a later date.

If you are interested, email us at enquiries@epiclan.co.uk with a brief description of your experience and maybe some sample articles of things you've done in the past and we'll take a look.
