The Chicago Lan party will take place on Friday the 9th of November till Sunday the 11th in lovely Chicago, Illinois. It will be held at the Hyatt Regency Schaumburg, Chicago just outside of O’Hare airport. Group rates will be $75.00+tax and must be ordered and confirmed through the Hotel! Please call 1-888-421-1442 to book your hotel and make sure you let them know you are with the 2old2play group in order to get your group rate. Doing so ensures not only your rate, but our ability to secure the game room at an affordable cost. If you have any other questions you can contact them at 1-888-421-1442 .
If you are flying into O’Hare, you must plan ahead to take a cab or train to the Hyatt. There is currently no shuttle service. However if you are driving in, parking is FREE, so feel free to spend the whole weekend at the hotel. If you decide to bring your kids and family you will be happy to know that our hotel is situated between both downtown Chicago and northern Suburban Shopping. They will have access to hundreds of restaurants, a shopping mall, movie theater and a GameWorks. If anyone would like to volunteer with set up or is coming in on Thursday, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can add you to the list of Staff. The Hotel will be providing a bar directly next to the Lan room so we ask that members DO NOT bring their own food or beverage into the Lan.
Fankly, we think it's been way too long. In fact the last few years without the LAN have truly splintered us as a community. We think it's time to stop worring about our game of choice and start building a better community. This place is home for a lot of different types of older gamers and the LAN is a perfect way to come together for the greater good and celebrate being a part of 2o2p. We truly hope that regardless of what clan you're a part of, you will join us this coming November.
Obviously there will be some serious Halo 4 this year, but we really don't want to single out any one game. We are shooting for a big presence from our BF3 division, as well from our Forza following. On top of that, we plan to continue our support of WoW, SWTOR, and Guild Wars 2 on the PC. Again, we don't want the game to matter, only the people who play them.
Since this is a LAN party, we will not be providing any of the gaming equipment. We ask that you bring as much equipment as you can from the list below. We know this is asking a lot, but this is an unsponsored event and so cost of space, TV rental, and prizes are factored into ticket price. 2old2play is creating this event through our members donations so we only charge for what we need to pay for. It is possible that 2o2p will be able to gain sponsorship and if so, ticket holders will be notified and adjustments will be made to the list. Don’t forget to mark all your equipment. 2old2play will not be responsible for any lost consoles, games, or controllers.
