With the recent doors opening from the creation of the eSports team in McDonald County, there are many new opportunities. One of those opportunities is the new, up and coming LAN (Local Area Network) Party. Now, what is a LAN Party? Basically, a whole bunch of gamers come together and play a lot of video games for a long time.
This particular LAN Party is being hosted by the MCHS Megabytes and is being used as a fundraiser to buy resources and materials needed to compete in the Spring Season. The party is this Saturday, March 24th, and it starts at 10 am and ends at 10 pm. It cost 5$ to enter and play for the entire day, and 20$ to gain access to the food buffet being served.
The most anticipated games that will be played are League of Legends, Injustice 2, and Fortnite. Yes, that is right. You can now play Fortnite at school with your buddies for 5 hours straight withith the game downloaded on 60+ computers with graphic cards to match the game. If you love Fortnite, then you will love this party. Other games that you will be able to play is Warcraft 3, Starcraft 2, and Medal of Honor.
Another big thing offered, is the 1v1 Injustice tournament, and the 5v5 League of Legends tournament (all will include prizes to the winners). You can choose your own team and submit to the brackets.
So if you’re a gamer, or just love Fortnite, get your controller, hook it up, and play games with the team all day.
