I love the i-series. I’ve been either attending or staffing these events for almost 10 years, and even now I still marvel at the sight of thousands of gamers all congregated in one place, fragging the crap out of each other. I still wonder how the network manages to cope with so much data flying round it, so many headshots, so many games! The events are run by Multiplay, who have been slowly increasing the size of the LAN’s since the late 90’s from a few hundred @i5 to almost 2000 at the lastest event; i36. Its an awesome sight, which I tried my best to capture in this panorama. Iv never done one of these before, so I was unsure how well it was going to come out, but im pleasantly surprised at how well it seems to have worked. I might do more of these! Just warning if you click to enlarge panorama; its a 15mb JPEG file so it might take a while depending on your connection!

Below are some of the other images from the event. Roll on i37!
