Forums Down

We are sad to report that the Pong forums are currently down, and will likely remain offline for the foreseeable future. This is due to a sudden influx of technical difficulties *cough* spam-bots *cough* which ended with numerous questionable links being posted and the eventual site take down by Stout. We are working hard to implement stronger security measures and get the forums back up as soon as possible, but in the mean time we apologize for the inconvenience.

Also, PONG would like to reiterate that we in no way condone illegal distribution of software (aka pirating)

Have a great semester!

Pwning bots all day,

Turducken LAN This Weekend!

This time is finally upon us once again; this weekend will see our newest LAN party! As a final reminder, the LAN will start on Friday, Nov. 21 at 4:00pm and will run until 4:00pm Sunday. As always, setup will begin at noon on Friday and we welcome any and all help.

The new tournament schedule is now up here, so feel free to take a gander. You will notice that we are running fewer official tournaments this time around; this is to prevent scheduling conflicts between tournaments, and also to keep time open for the games YOU want to play.

Hope to see you all there!

Always super effective,

Kicking Things Off!

The start of the school year is upon us, and we here at PONG have loads of info for those who wish to get involved with Stout’s resident gaming org!

First off, Backyard Bash is this Tuesday (September 2nd), and you can bet we’ll be there! If you are interested in the org or the LANs we host, want information or tips on how to become involved, or even need help troubleshooting your network problems, PONG will be happy to oblige. So make sure to stop by and say hi!

The following week, PONG will be hosting our first official meeting of the semester on Tuesday, September 9 at 7PM in the MSC Ballroom B. The meeting is open to anyone who wishes to attend, and we will cover several topics such as what exactly PONG is, how you can get involved with the org, and (most importantly) details on our first event, the EXPO LAN! Important info on how and when seating for the LAN will be assigned will be covered, so if you have any interest in attending our LAN parties, we highly suggest you attend. If you can’t physically be at the meeting however, we will be streaming it for the entire duration via our Twitch channel (http://www.twitch.tv/ponguwstout), so you don’t have to miss anything!

Lastly, the thing you all really care about, our first LAN party known as the EXPO LAN will be held Friday, October 3 at 4PM through Sunday, October 5 at 4PM in the MSC Great Hall. Setup for the event begins around noon on Friday, and we invite anyone who is willing to come help us out. For many students the EXPO LAN is their very first, so lets make it a great one!

A Winner Is You,
