It’s D-Day for the long-awaited face-to-face return of the Lan ETS, the largest Lan gathering on the east coast of North America, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. On the program: numerous prizes to be won, video game tournaments, kiosks and a festive atmosphere.

The Lan ETS, created in 2002 on the initiative of three university students who love network games and information technology (IT), is above all a video game competition.

“Lan” refers to a local area network (local area network in English) in which several computers are connected together and therefore in close proximity. This game option was practical at the time when the Internet connection was more expensive and was still not very present in homes.

The organization expects around a thousand players who will compete for prizes worth $20,000 from May 13 to 15.

Among the titles in competition this year (New window)let us mention League of Legends, Guilty Gear: Strive, CS:GO, Smash Bros Melee and Ultimate, Rocket League, street fighter V and Valorant.

Other activities are also planned during the three days of festivities, including a talent show. On the site, there are also mentions of waterfalls (stunt), costumes (cosplay) and a treasure hunt.

The Lan ETS kicks off at 6 p.m. Friday, and the event wraps up at 5 p.m. Sunday. People who cannot travel will be able to watch the competitions online on Bell’s Twitch channel (New window).
