Telefragged chats QuakeCon's Executive Director, Brian "Tapper" Davis as he talks about the effort that went into this years event, the future of QuakeCon, and the equipment used to run the whole thing this year:
Telefragged: Was it the biggest LAN event in the US?
Brian "Tapper" Davis: To the best of my knowledge, yes. I've been to most of the big ones, and I've never seen anything come even close. I think the next largest event was about 1500 in total size, despite some wishful thinking with their reported numbers. At this point, the only North American event we're competing with is ourselves each year. We had about 1500 people more at the event this year than last. Rumor has it there was a lan once in Europe somewhere that may have had a little bigger BYOC though. Guess we'll just have to try harder next year :)
