LANcouver is back and we’re spending all weekend hanging out with gamers at this EPIC LAN party that has been graciously hosted by NCIX at their HQ in Richmond, BC, Canada. Leading the sponsor charge are Tier 1 sponsors, ASUS and BenQ with all your other favourite companies falling in behind including InWin, BitFenix, CORSAIR and NETGEAR (who also supplied the amazing network for low pings and gaming happiness). Supplying the Internet is SHAW.
Other sponsors providing prizing to the event (that weren’t able to attend in person) included Kingston Technology, Enermax, Logitech and NZXT.
