YO YO YO! I'm sure you guys have already heard about Geforce LAN going down October 14-16! From what I saw, they are all SOLD OUT! Boo Hoo..:(
http://www.geforce.com/Active/en_US/shared/images/geforce-lan/header-gflan6.jpg

Well... I "personally" happen to have 2 tickets to give away to our ROG Forum members! These tickets allow you to get to the BYOC and SLEEP OVER for LAN CAMP!

This is what the package comes with, ($130 value + whatever you might win at the event):
BYOC



Acces to GeForce LAN exhibits and USS Hornet museum all weekend during general admission hours
Entry into official contests and tournaments
Entry into official raffle
One seat and 3 feet of table space
~4 amps of electrical
Friday night opening reception (including two drink tickets for over 21)
Saturday and Sunday lunch
Saturday night dinner
Awesome swag bag
Proceeds will go toward Child's Play charity, with 100% matched by the employee-lead NVIDIA Foundation
Option to liveaboard the USS Hornet (for additional fee; limited space available; see GeForce LAN FAQ for details)


LAN Camp



Add-on option (for BYOC / BYOC L33T passes only) for 2 nights in the barracks aboard the USS Hornet

IMPORTANT NOTE: Accommodations are very simple.

Now as to how I'm going to give these away... I would like you to convince me WHY I should give you a ticket to go to this awesome LAN event.


You need to follow NVIDIA's rules, read here: http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtopic=210185
You need to be a ROG member and have at least 10 posts or more to qualify.
Due to legal reason, you need to be 18+ years or have a guardian's consent of going, I believe NVIDIA have their own rules regarding minors.
You need to tell me that you have proper transportation to make it out to the event otherwise, why bother asking for tickets to something you're not going to.
You need to post in this thread only ONCE, on why i should give you the tickets. That is the general question I am asking, you can be creative, genuine, nice, just don't be an @$$. CONVINCE ME WHY I SHOULD CHOOSE YOU!
Cut off time is 9/30/2011 1:00pm PST. Ill look over comments and pick after that.

GO!

Oh Man.. I really wish I could do this.. But that is when my Mini-Mesters starts... or I would be all over this, just to show off that new system and represent the ROG! So good luck and please people who go, get us some video and pictures.. ROG ON!

I have been killing myself trying to get a ticket. The first time I was at a lecture and couldn't get a ticket. The second go, I got an error on the reg site and got screwed out of getting a ticket. I have like 15 of my friends going and would be super upset if I missed out. If I can get a ticket I will give anyone (up to 3 people) and their rigs a ride if they are on the way down or near Sacramento. I don't do much other than school work and watch my little girl but when I do get out it's almost always for LANs either at a friends or intel and nvidia. If I get a ticket I would do anything.

I have my ticket and you guys do not want to miss this!

*New users please note that the 10 post requirement should be 10 *relevant* posts. Please do not spam junk to get your posts. This contest is open for a week so you have plenty of time to participate in the community here. If you need ideas start a thread telling us about your modded PC or start a thread about your favorite gaming experiences. Your friendly team of moderators thanks you. :)

MO, these tickets sold out in 4 hours and a lot of people missed out. We are going to get new members looking for tickets so all we can do is hope that some of them stick around. I'm sure that Brian will take into consideration the difference between people who have posted throw away comments in order to inflate a post count and those that have actually tried to participate. Anything completely irrelevant and spammy the moderators will be deleting anyway.

:cool: Come on MO, Let's not get all pissy about it. I'm sure you can act like an adult and accept that he asked you to not harass me in order to prevent any conflict. That's all. I posted spam like comments on a personal friends thread which he told me I could. I was warned, my replies removed and I have been contributing legitimately since. Let's just calm down and get along. And as far as a forum being used to market, of course it is. That's how companies work. There is a thread just for it. It's not meant to get people in here and them to spam random threads. That's why my comments have been removed. The company and its admins are just doing their jobs. No need to get upset about it. As far as I've seen I'm one of the VERY FEW new member caused by this promotion. It's just how life goes on any forum. :cool:

And how you are to tell me to act like an adult, I was talking to Brian not you, he is the admin here here and we have mod, so if I go off topic it's to them to tell me.


I think I make my share of posts in this forum so I can say I don't like the idea of have new peoples to come here post anything just to have a ticket. It’s not harassment it’s the right to an Asus customers and forum member to say what I thing of it. I firmly believe Brian is right to make thing to attract new members, but it’s the way it’s done this time I dislike, I will have prefer see a draft who any members can have enroll without minimum post , so we will not have a bloating of posts.

I will like to add that usually I really like what Brian do here, his dog tag was a great idea, the review also was a great idea, 3 months ago on Newegg they make a sweepstake, may be 200 news members enroll, good thing they don't have to post 10 times, as results , all the winner was news members than we never see again after, fortunately, 1 don't claim his price and they draw it again and it fall on the person I have the most respect on that forum, a person that always help others.

Speed, I have an idea.. see if you can get some ASUS - ROG Support and start an event.. it does not have to be big to begin with... but then you would have your event out your way, ASUS / ROG would have a team player out that way to contact should they want to do something bigger. Just an idea.

People, I am new here and just wanted to say, please get along.. there is no need for this drama. This Havok person really really wants to go.. as do many others, I do, but due to other obligations I just cant. I think before we start a thread war we just all allow the mods and admins the time to deal with it.. they have impressed me with their abilities to take care of situations and make sound choices.

Question, how often does GEFORCE have these LAN Parties? Maybe next time I can get to one of these. Oh another Question, How many events like this does ASUS/ROG attend? can we get a calendar some place to show all the coming events you'll be attending to plan our event schedules around. Thanks!

H4VOK89
09-24-2011, 08:51 PM
Please dont take what you have quoted from me as me trying to be insulting. And my mistake for thinking you were talking me. I think he said a minimum of 10 posts to encourage people to participate in the forums hoping they would take an interest in them. Or so already established members can get a chance. And I only suggested trying to stay on topic as a way to not flood this thread with a bunch of stuff that doesnt have anything really to do with the contest.

Nvidia has been doing these for a number of years and this is the 6th event. The previous one was part of Nvision 08 which was about as grandiose as a convention gets. With the economic downturn we haven't seen one in the last few years but I'm glad they're back.

All that is to say that Nvidia has done them on a varying scale of epicness and timing so I don't really know what the future will hold.

I suspect that if we posted this on the Geforce forum you would not have a problem. However I figured that we should let the people here have first crack. :)

I guess the locals like me already bought their tickets and a lot of our people are really far away!

I just finished to talk to my wife and she said that I need vacation, my passport is up todate, so I apply, why me, ? I think I will be a good representation of ROG as all my pc are ROG or Asus powered. ( aside of few server in the lab) I will have of course to rebuild one in a smaller case for the plane. Or may be it's time for a ROG notebook !!! Will be interesting to meet V2-v3 and Xero.

Well I guess I should explain why I should get the ticket(s). I have been a PC gamer since I was about 13 or so and have always loved gaming in general. I have never been to a LAN other than a couple my friends have had. It would be AMAZING to go to such an event as GeForce. My father was in the navy and it would be kinda cool to sleep aboard a ship like he did. I have always liked navy stuff. I LOVE BFBC2 and would be ecstatic to play BF3 early. Especially to test my skills in tounrey setting. If you select me and Havok it will not be a waste. It will be one hell of a good time and would make my year. (I don't get out much lol)
