Games: Minecraft(that og alpha life), Starcraft, Fortnite(save the world), Factorio, whatever you're wanting to play
Why PDX LAN: my best friend told me it was pretty rad and that the group he went with was welcoming and fun to hang with so I came! Never looked back either, SkrubQuest and the whole LAN community have been amazing and I feel privilaged to take part in both.
Me: Oregon born and raised, I live down salem way but grew up in Beaverton. Was a scoccor player turned Theather kid and converted to PC gamer the last year of high school. These days I take care of my dog, play games and work for an office furniture dealership(dont get me started on ergonomics). Drop by my seat sometime and say Hi or shoot me a message to play some games!

Music: Everything but screamo

Games: PUBG, Cod 4, LoL, WoW.
Games of old: COD's, Halo, Madden, All Xbox stuff mostly.
What I like about PDXLAN: I was introduced in to computer gaming my sophomore year of college. I then met a couple of college guys that knew all the inner-working of PCs. They told me about it all and instantly I was hooked. We all became good friends and later we found PDXLAN in 2012. I went with one buddy and from their we have grown our group to 20-30 people who attend regularly (MvpGC). I love PDXLAN because we all share the same passion for friendships through gaming and a lot of us are growing old (wont say growing up, because we are all adult children :) ) and we stay connected through these events and gaming. Fair to say PDXLAN has given me more friends I communicate with daily,weekly than I ever did through all of my life experiences, some of those friends were groomsman in my wedding last month! Fair to say PDXLAN has given me a lot to look forward too every year and a lot of friends that are passionate about the same things i am. <3

Wow! New forums!

I go by the handle Orthodontist, been to PDXLan a few times, skip out for a few years and what do you know? NEW FORUMS! Also, new venue for November? Oh geez peoples, what has been going on?

I mostly play FPS or RTS games, lurk far more than I post, and discovered reddit 2 years ago (RIP freetime.) The most defining aspect of my life is that I'm actually enjoying playing Fallout 76.

Cheers! :rawr:

Love about PDXLAN: I love this community, and there's nothing better than to find a reason to game all weekend with my kids.

My first PDXLAN was 3, and I came for a couple of years then had a long gap until coming back two years ago. PDXLAN has always been a great community, and I wish there were more like them.

Favorite thing about PDXLAN: feeling like I fit in, like I'm part of something to be proud of.
Fun facts: I was in a breakdancing crew in high school, served in the Air Force, and lived in Okinawa for 3 years.

I spent years seeing pictures from PDXLAN on Facebook (mostly of Sprinkles winning prizes) and wishing I could be a part of it. The second my wife (handle: Squishy) and I decided to move to Portland, once of the first things I did was buy a ticket to the next event. I look forward to each and every one of them now, and hope to make more of an effort to meet new people in coming events.

Thank you to everyone who's had a part in keeping this community going strong.
