xx Itís so hard to say goodbye
March 18, 2019, 06:59:41 PM by Renegade
NeXus LANírs - today we want to inform you that NeXus  LAN  24 will be the last event for Renegade and Sideout , and for NeXus LAN itself.  It is not an easy decision to make as nothing can replace the feeling and excitement of watching and participating in a successful event , but we feel that it is time to retire and pursue other interests.

Since inception born from the death of Dayton LANFest , the journey from a small 50 person LAN to the graduation as one of the premier LANís in Ohio  , NeXus LAN has been dedicated to one mission and goal - providing the casual gamer an experience that is second to none , a great casual gaming event , and a family friendly environment.

Over the course of the last several years  there has been a shift in the LAN party world.  The expanse of home broadband , the cost of manufacturing tech / gaming products , and the general march of time has impacted both attendance and sponsorship.  The changes by game design and creators shifting to public lobbies and catering to streaming has limited the choices in tournament play.   All of these factors have contributed to a steady decline in sponsorship , attendance , and participation at the last several events.

Everyone wants to go out on top and both Renegade and myself feel that it is time to retire from NeXus LAN with the many great memories that we have. We also feel that the NeXus LAN name , brand and reputation deserves to be retired as well.

We want everyone one to know how much your support over the past years have meant in terms of the people attending and the sponsors for helping out.  

We want to thank our staff who work tirelessly at each event and sacrifice their time twice a year.

We hope a new event and organizers will be found or step forward to keep the NeXus LAN tradition of casual gaming alive in the area but those details are not solidified as of yet. Either way the NeXus LAN name , brand and reputation will be retired after NeXus LAN 24.

Again , thanks to you and all past attendees  , who made NeXus LAN what it is today.  We wish you all the best in your future endeavors.
