Welcome to ExtremeLANKC.com!
ExtremeLANKC has been Kansas City's premier LAN party for since June 24th, 2004! We welcome you to our website as we continue to provide Kansas City with the finest in PC and console gaming. Our events have been thru some changes in the last year as we took some time off to regroup and come up with some new ideas. Seems that the game developers had forgotten who it was that helped make gaming popular and started putting out games that did not allow for LAN gaming. Their excuse was to protect the integrity of their games to combat cheaters and people who just made playing the games not worthwhile. That meant that we had no way to offer newer games to our players and many just chose not to come to LAN's.
That meant we had to not only polish off some of the older games we used to play but work out something else to be able to play the new games as well. We have been working on getting better Internet service to our locations and getting the power needed to run the newer rigs with all the beefy systems. Not only that but we decided to change our events from monthly to quarterly events to give people time to look forward to our next events. We also are going with the Midwest LAN War name for these events so people from the Midwest area will feel that these LAN's are also for them. In the past we have drawn from all over to include Iowa, Nebraska, Colorado, Oklahoma, Missouri and Kansas. So why not make them feel at home with these events!
In our conception lets just say we broke away from traditional LAN party format at a time when no one ever heard of Console Gaming being side by side with PC Gaming. Over the years ExtremeLANKC has pioneered new changes in LAN party formats and we are quite proud of the fact we have made history in video gaming in Kansas City. Now its time for us to gain even more strides in putting on our Midwest LAN War events on for our gaming community.
We use the motto that "We play the games people want!" As our lineup of games changes as people tell us what they want to play. We give our members the choice of games from either poll questions or suggestions on the forums. We list our cash tournaments as Featured Games and our Open Gaming tells you what games we expect to play. If you have a game that you would like to see in our lineup of tournaments lets us know about it.
We are a for profit organization as our Entry Fee's are meant to provide the location and pay for the things that it takes to put on each event. Tournament Fee's are used to provide our Featured Game cash tournaments with a Prize Pot. The Prize Pot is dependent on the amount of Tournament Fee's collected from those participating in the tournaments. Our Open Gaming are games that are not big enough to provide a tournament for but others still enjoy playing. Sometimes we offer sponsor prizes for the winners of these event when we have a sponsor send us prizes that we can give away.
Thank you to the many members of our gaming community who have continued to support what we do. Over the years ExtremeLANKC has given a lot of nice prizes to some lucky winners of our events and to the winners of our raffle drawings. We have seen many try to do what we do and we have seen many fail over the years as its not an easy thing to do financially. Our staff being players and members of our gaming community have been the backbone of why we succeed. Over the years many have stepped up to help and a lot of gratitude goes out to them as well as our current staff!
