BaseLAN 29 Is In Two Days: Acquire Hype, Equip Hype

It’s time.


I’ll keep this one quick, folks. BaseLAN 29 is in two days, and it looks like our biggest and best BaseLAN yet.

We’ve got over $20,000 in prizes to give out over the course of BL29, for headliner tournaments CS:GO, Dota 2, and Hearthstone, and side events like League of Legends, Trackmania, Rocket League, and Unreal Tournament 2K4. We are, literally, Canada’s most-sponsored e-Sports event.

On top of gaming until your eyes bleed (EDITOR’S NOTE: PLEASE DO NOT LITERALLY GAME UNTIL YOUR EYES BLEED), make sure you check out Contributing Editors Kevin Carbotte’s and Jake Carewick’s hard work over at the Demo Zone and Indie Alley, where there will be multiple Oculus Rifts available to try a variety of different games, and many devs coming in to demo their latest builds!

Oh, and we can’t forget this:
