We are very pleased to host members of United Operations gaming community at the Skynet Summer 2018 LAN. We have had attendees from UO for the past few events (including some of our own staff!) however this time they have outdone themselves with members in attendance from The United States, Norway, Denmark, Sweeden, Germany and the UK, we are looking forward to hosting such an international collection of gamers and hope you will join us in making them feel welcome.
Here is a little bit about UO
“UnitedOperations is a multi-national Tactical Gaming Community for mature players that are seeking realistic scenarios in a multitude of games, in addition to tactical and cooperative gameplay. UnitedOperations was established in August of 2010 for players seeking a free and open community, that did not put forced requirements on it’s playerbase such as virtual ranks, playtime, and or forced monetary requirements to participate.
Our primary titles are ArmA 3, Falcon BMS, DCS:World, and Steel Beasts. We welcome players from across the globe to participate with us in these titles, and any others.”
So if any of that interests you then head on over to their website for more info or grab one of their members at the LAN.
We are pleased to finally announce the dates for the next SkyNet Wales LAN
The event will be taking place on Friday the 20th of July to Sunday the 22nd.
That time has come around once again, we will be seeing you all in July. As always it has taken longer than we would like to get the arrangements finalised for the next event. Fortunately that is all now done and its plain sailing to the LAN!
As some of you may have already noticed, we have added a set picker to the website so you can now select exactly where you want to sit. This will hopefully free up quite a significant amount of staff time that was spent on organising seating plans in the past. While also allowing you to book your own place with the people you want to be around.
Its pretty a pretty simple system but it should do fine for us. Simply select the tickets you want and click add to basket. for reference here is a picture of the seating arrangements.
A massive thank you to TheWelshWoman for photographing the event, check out her amazing shots inside!
