For some time now there have plans for a resurrection of the classic QHLAN events and as some people have been hard at work realizing it, the website is now live with signups and a tournament prize crowdfunding option for people who feel they can spare a dime for people to compete for. It looks like we are in for a real treat.
The Quake-o-Holics LAN, better known as simply "QHLAN", was for long an institution in the QuakeWorld scene. The LAN was being hosted annually between the years of 2000 - 2011 and five years after the last event, the LAN is set to make a comeback in 2017. Many old champions and classic matches have been seen at these competitions, ranging from the old team deathmatch dynasties of Lege Artis
back at the start of the millennia to the perhaps more modern players still going at it, such as Milton
who have attended the last events.
This time QHLAN will be held during 2-5 March 2017 at the Fredrika Bremergymnasiet venue
(which is a school) in Haninge just outside of Stockholm in Sweden. While the event is a BYOC LAN, some arrangements can be made for players coming from very far away with regards to equipment.
Previously the QHLAN tournaments have been contested mainly for pride and glory, featuring 1on1, 2on2 and 4on4 competitions throughout the weekend. This year, however, it is stepped up a notch as a crowdfunded prize pool is present (currently at ~12,500SEK and counting) as well as high quality casting by Andeh
. Players with flair can look forward to contesting the Warzon trophy
which is also making a return.
