LAN Madness is a weekend-long Age of Empires II "bring your own computer" (BYOC) LAN Party, based in St Helens Liverpool, UK.
Our core aim is to bring the UK Age of Empires community together for a weekend full of fun - tournaments, custom games, board games and more, on Friday 8th July to Sunday 10th July.
We are running a tournament with cup and plate brackets for all willing to attend LAN Madness.
Sign-ups open 11th April, with first matches 3 and a half weeks later on May 9th.
Cup semis/finals and plate finals will be played and broadcast from a LAN stage at the event!

A 48 hour celebration of Age of Empires II!
Community games, guest slots, board games, and the broadcasted conclusion of LAN Lubbers happening live from the venue.
We're a group of AoE2 players coming together to put something on for the community at large; it's something new and something different, and we're hoping you all will see it for what it is - a chance to meet the community, have a load of fun and be something we can all remember for years to come. Don't miss out! Even if you can't bring your computer, we have spectator tickets available so that you don't have to miss anything.
The core of the event is 4 rows of tables primed with power and networking equipment, awaiting up to 48 attendees to bring their own computers (BYOC).
What LAN Madness provides:
What you should bring:
Players that qualify for the tournament cup semis / plate finals will be provided weekend-long spectator access to the event if they do not buy their own ticket; we plan to have both stage and practise PCs available for these players.
If you are struggling to put together transport for yourself and your rig, we have put together a mini matchmaking service on our Discord called 'organise-transport'. It's essentially a Google Map where people looking for a lift can put a marker down in their town, and those with spaces they're willing to car share with can advertise the vague route they plan to go. Can then arrange directly through Discord. All the information on how to use this service is in the organise-transport Discord channel.
