GottaCon 2013 group-rate
We’ve announced our 5th isLANd event for the year, it’s being hosted on December 8th 2012 at the Tech Park. For more infor & registration please click here: http://www.bcgamer.com/info-reg/island/
We will be featuring some RENTAL computers for an additional $10, please contact an admin through facebook or email jacob [AT] bcgamer.com for more details.
First, let’s get the bad news out of the way: IsLANd 4 has been postponed due to some unfortunate events. At this point in time our contact at the VITP has changed offices, leaving us with no venue for the time being.
BCGamer is proud to announce that we will once again be assisting with Gottacon in February of 2013. We’ll be running the non-competitive events and putting up some servers for the entire weekend (tentatively CS:GO, DayZ Lingor, Minecraft, among many others). Some of you may remember that last year we had 20 guys go and received a package deal. If anyone is interested in heading that up for 2013 or would like to throw down early for a cheap ticket shoot me an email: Justin@BCGamer.com
This Saturday at Luxton Hall in Langford BCGamer will be hosting Victoria’s BIGGEST Summer LAN party. Arrive at 9 Am for tournament registration and PC setup.

On top of that we will have several servers running the entire length of the day including DayZ – Lingor Island (Version 032, Arma 2 Beta 95417), Team Fortress 2, Cod4:MW1, Counter Strike Source, and Minecraft to name a few.

We here at BC Gamer are proud to announce our Tournament lineup for our upcoming GIBFEST event. You will be able to compete for prizes in the following games:
StarCraft 2 1v1: Think you got the best micro/macro on Vancouver Island? Now it’s your time to shine. Come Show us why your main race is OP and have the rest raging for nerfs to Blizzard.
League of Legends 5v5: Last hitting and mega builds will be crucial if you and your team want to avoid defeat. Gather your friends and claim victory.
Battlefield 3 4v4: Rush is the name of the game but be careful not to abide by it because you and your team will need some steady aim and strategy if you want to take home the gold in our Battlefield tournament.
Team Fortress 2 5v5: What makes you a good demoman? Why don’t you come show us. Are you good enough to protect your teams Medic while also taking the point? Can you rocket jump your way to victory? I guess its only a matter of time before we find out. (Item ban list tentative so keep checking with us for more info on that)
Now that the lineup is out, gather your friends, work on your strats and be ready to come with your A game.
We here at BCGamer love Lanning, Gaming, and getting together, and so do our buddies over at LANcouver. Live in Vancouver? Want to check out some sick tournaments? LANcouver 2012 will be happening June 29th to July 1st. 48 Hours of gaming goodness. Tickets are $55 and you can find more info at their website, http://www.lancouver.com/.
Hello Everyone this is Graphite!
I thought I’d just quickly mention our LAN this coming saturday the 16th of JUNE at the vitp (details: http://www.bcgamer.com/info-reg/island)
- We will be playing: SC2, TF2, CoH, Super MNC, Tricky Truck and likely some other goodness. C’mon down and play some!
- These LANs are our SOCIAL LANS, they’re to chill out & have fun while playing games with others.
- We will likely do our best to gang up on Barrett who’s a SC2 master, 7v1? I THINK SO.
- We’ll be giving out some prizes (aka tickets for gibfest 2012 being held in august) and likely a couple gag gifts.
I’ve been LANNING for over a decade, and while we’ve seen some publishers pull back from LAN support, we’ve seen others happily dive into it. Going forward we are going to see more and more LAN support and PC gaming getting back to its original glory. I, personally, cant wait!
Hopefully see you on Saturday!
This is a bit late, but better late than never I suppose. I had a ton of fun at our first small LAN in Victoria. About 18 guys showed up, a little smaller than ideal, but things worked out. We enjoyed numerous games of TF2, a few rounds League of Legends, and a Company of Heroes tournament, among other things. The network was flawless, with the exception of having to swap the ethernet cable between our switches out for another one. I look forward to Lanning at the Vancouver Island Technology Park soon! Pictures can be found here.
