Gaming events. They can kill you. I mean, if you really like them, that can happen. You get prepared, you know you’re not going to sleep much and run around a lot. Whether it’s for work or fun, it’s all the same.
I remember about ten years ago I was so excited I could hardly sleep before LAN Arena 5, the major French LAN party at the time. DreamHack is just the same, ten times bigger. And I’m not exaggerating one bit as they beat another world record for computers at a LAN party over the weekend: 12 734 exactly.
So, once again, I didn’t sleep much during a LAN party. As someone who’s travelled a lot for that kind of things, I can tell this one is very impressive. Both super well organized and messy. Filled with computers, guys and… a surprisingly big number of girls too.
It was amazing to meet all of you people. Let me give a special shoutout to Hans and Natalia for all the help, and also to my pal Jean-Pierre.
I’ve been uploading videos that I shot with my phone. Below are those I like the most. There are more on our Youtube channel. And even more will get uploaded later on as I find my way through the hundreds of clips I have.
