In PBS , we like to organise a LAN party at least once a year. Its a great opportunity to get to know the player behind the PC , to see each others beloved PC and to bond with a nice friendship. Depending on the game, a LAN is also great in technical terms of latency…
A LAN party requires either a hub/switch, with enough ports to accommodate all the players, or if all the computers have Wi-Fi capability, an ad hoc network may be set up. This allows two or more computers to connect over a wireless connection, thereby eliminating the need for a wired network, a fair amount of power, and suitable surfaces for all the computers. Providing refreshments is often also a duty of the host, though guests are usually asked to contribute. In larger parties where participants may not all know each other personally, an entry fee may even be charged. Another tradition of some small groups is to purchase large amountsof fast food for consumption over many days. Many LAN participants will also bring food or drink to consume over the course of the party—though th
