Coverage from Dreamhack Winter 2004

By on November 26, 2004, 6:42 PM
I arrived here at Dreamhack yesterday. Dreamhack is held twice per year in Jönköping Sweden and is the biggest LAN party in the world, this year alone featuring a staggering 6270 attendees. Yesterday the Abit Fatal1ty guy was here, (Quake3 world champion) and surprinsingly got beat by a Swede playing here.

Tomorrow a world record will be attempted, officials from The Guinness World of Records will be here to confirm the most players ever recorded on a single game server, a 32xCPU Unisys ES7000 server running Windows Datacenter.

I am getting one of those for Xmas, you know.

Hahaha, that sounds great P66, get one for backup also so you can run them in a cluster if the first one fails :D

One day I will eventually get myself to Europe for Dreamhack. Afterall, who can turn away such a small LAN party, right? ;)
