What is TimConLAN?
TimConLAN is a community driven Arena FPS LAN party located in Liverpool, England. What started as a small get together between five friends has grown into a four day gaming event attracting players from across the UK and neighbouring European countries.
TimCon is an intimate LAN that showcases the best and the breadth of Arena FPS. It’s where viscious competition meets friendly banter, new games meet the archaic and the digital world meets baroque surroundings. From humble beginnings, the LAN has grown in all manners. Trophies, once paper after thoughts are now bespoke metal works.
The tournaments, once a joke between five novices one too many over the limit are now partially legitimate, with some of each game’s respective best in attendance. With its growth people have traveled from far and wide to attend TimCon, undertaking multi-day, cross country road trips and modest flights. Events vary from Team Draft based tournaments, a gauntlet of several games and modes, to traditional duel tournaments in titles you’re sure to recognise. Games featured so far: Quake Live, Warsow, Reflex Arena, Quake Champions and DOOMBRINGER. Each TimCon adds something new, with a shifiting focus to match the Arena FPS landscape at the time.
Horizon E-Sport Club
Liverpool’s premier esports cafe has played host to TimCon LAN since April 2017. Horizon is a huge part of what makes TimCon a little different and a little luxurious. With its high end PC’s and monitors, you can do away with bringing your own computer. Food and drinks can be ordered straight from the desktop. The downstairs cafe doubles as a tournament viewing area, making the grand finals truly memorable. There’s also ready access to the historic city of Liverpool, whether it’s the night life or a more orthodox interpretation of the word culture that takes your fancy.
