CL1 Addendum

October 9, 2015 | Posted in Events, Tagged

Due to being an overnight LAN, we need to lay down some extra ground rules for the Union’s Health & Safety/Security standards.
Firstly, we need to provide the porters with a full list of everyone coming, so please make sure you are signed up if you are planning on coming, as well as letting us know about any extra friends you plan on bringing along that aren’t signed up themselves.
Secondly, after midnight the doors will be locked as the Union officially shuts then. We have arranged with the porter that people will be allowed to enter on the hour, every hour, so if you are turning up after midnight or need to leave for a while, try to make sure that you’re arriving on the hour. As for leaving, this will be less strict, but try to go as a group where possible.
Finally, for food orders, the pizza form is now up, and will be open until roughly midnight when the order will be placed. If you don’t want pizza, there will be an alternate food order being sorted at the LAN, however this needs to go as one order, so if you’re interested in ordering an alternative come and talk to us at the LAN.

CL1 Timetable (15-16)

October 6, 2015 | Posted in LAN Timetable, Tagged

The first LAN of the term is nearly upon us and is another overnight one! The LAN will be held in the Anson Rooms (1st floor of the SU), starting at 10 PM on Friday, and ending at 10 AM the next morning. Don’t worry if you don’t think you can handle the whole night, you’re welcome to come and go as you please. There will be a pizza order going out around midnight, with an expected delivery somewhere around 1-2 AM. We get half price pizza from The Red Pizza Co, but feel free to do your own thing for food as well if you want (although we recommend bringing lots of snacks, especially if you’re staying the whole night, as there won’t be anywhere to buy food at the LAN). The order form will go live on the day and can be found here.

If you aren’t sure how to install any of the games on the timetable then look at the Install Guide for help. It’s a good idea to have everything you want to play installed before the LAN, as 50 people suddenly all trying to download games at the same time isn’t great. If you need help or have any questions then ask us on IRC, at the pre-LAN social or at the LAN itself.

Welcome to COGS ’15-’16

September 26, 2015 | Posted in News, Tagged

Hello all and welcome to COGS (or another year of it for those who survived last year :D)

We have our first social on Tuesday 29th September at the Balloon bar (the union bar). Come along grab a few drinks and play some games. We will bring a Wii, Xbox 360, PS2 and Gamecube as well as a Wii U to play everything from Super Smash to Crash Bash.

Alongside the casual games we will be having a mini Mario Kart comp to not only earn the Mario title for COGS, but our first ever title as we introduce COGS new leader board where we try work out who is best at a range of our games to potentially earn some “prizes” (/ so I know who I want to avoid playing against :P)

Our first LAN is on Friday 9th October. This is an overnight LAN Starting at 10pm on Friday and ending 10am on Saturday. Bring your own PC/laptop and play everything from TF2 and Counter Strike to Sonic Racing and Hearthstone. Full timetable to be released soon. This is not a strict timetable by any means so for all the LoL/Dota fans we won’t stop you from feeding and flaming.

I look forward to meeting you all at one of our events sometime soon.

KiLLiN_Spree95 aka Aaron
