Tomorrow is the 6th official PC Perspective and Fragging Frogs Virtual LAN party, kicking off at 10AM EDT on Saturday May 3.  You will find all the pertinent info on this thread in the Forums, such as how to Friend players on Steam or Origin, the Teamspeak server information and a list of the games we are likely to play as well as the patches and mods you will need.

Some reps from AMD will once again be joining us to give away prizes to those on the TeamSpeak server which you will need to log into in order to have a chance to win.  Battlefeild 4 is a definite and you can be sure there will be some UT2004 being played as well.  As well you are likely to get a chance to take a shot at the PC Perspective staff who will be showing up at various points during the day.  There is also a high likelihood some of the games will be livestreamed

Come join us and have a blast!

The best possible way you could spend Saturday, Feb 22nd

This weekend, specifically at 10AM ET on February 22nd the fifth Virtual LAN Party kicks off,  hosted by the famous Fragging Frogs and PC Perspective, with a good chance of some secret visitors from the Red Team.  There is no set end time for the event nor for any of the games so if you have any time on Saturday in which you do not find yourself saving innocents from a fate worse than death* then hop on and play with us.  You get to hang out with Forum members you have built friendships with, shoot those you hold a grudge against, and have the chance to frag Ryan, Josh and all the other PC Per staff brave enough to set foot into this battle royale.

*The only acceptable excuse to bail on us.

The games are many, both old and new; with a strong likelihood of every Battlefield game since 1942 represented along with spicy versions of Unreal 2004, Torchlight II, Hawken, a game involving heavy weapons versus dinosaurs and much more.  You can see the whole list here and can suggest others if we missed one of your favourites.  To prepare for the event you should install TeamSpeak 3 which is our chat client of choice; you can find the server info right here.  Other than that just show up when you can and hop into the game of your choice.

We have been doing VLAN's on a very irregular schedule since 2010 but if this weekend goes well we might just start eating a bit more fibre and start a more regular schedule.  There were once even tournaments held, though that was back when UT2K4 was shiny and new, which we could start up again.  For even more fun, you could help the Frogs get back together on the regular schedule we used to hold to back in the golden days of yore.  Don't forget to consider a jump in The Pond once you are finished playing, keep that CPU and GPU working full out!

This is also a great time to thank Lenny and AMD for the wonderful good deed that they did for one of our long term members.  You can read about their good works here and be sure to thank them for putting the effort into helping out one of our own.  

We look forward to seeing you there and shooting you several times.
