HighLANder - The World's Highest Elevation LAN Party... EVER!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So it will be a while before Guinness sorts through our footage to validate the world world for themselves, but it was definitely the highest altitude LAN party (okay... someone on a plane could have gamed higher up, but we're talking while still on land here) EVER!

 

This project was a blast and wouldn't have been possible without help from a LOT of people including the Tek Syndicate team, Austin Evans, the NeweggTV guys, and OF COURSE our sponsors.

Huge thanks first to ASUS for providing us with the router we used at the top, the funding we needed to get our teams out there, and of course a dozen of their latest RoG gaming notebook the G550JK, which you can check out in this video here:

 

 

Oh... and did I mention in the above video I've got details for how you can WIN the very notebook that I gamed on at the top of the mountain? Did I also mention that it's signed by me, Logan, Paul, Kyle, Luke, and Qain????

 

But don't worry if you don't win one. Newegg's got a deal going right now where you get an exclusive bundle if you buy one at this link. Check it out!

Our next big thank you goes out to Intel. They partnered with us to help pay many of the people involved including members of our teams. Oh and I guess they also made the efficient quad core Core i7 processors that went inside the G550JK notebooks we carried up the mountain. If they consumed more power and output more heat, then those would have been pretty difficult to lug up there!

Speaking of difficult to lug, our final sponsor, Corsair, was probably laughing at us when they sent their (awesomely built, but a touch heavy) all new Vengeance K95 and K70 RGB keyboards to us to game with at the summit. I cannot fault the build quality of these outstanding keyboards, and as long as the one I get once they're released ends up sitting on my desk instead of strapped to my back, then everything is going to be okay...

I thought I had a chance for the laptop, until I woke up the next morning and saw 10,000 people had entered the contest.

With that out of the way, its awesome that you were able to play up there. How did you all connect? I don't think there's a power outlet on top of the mountain for a router.
