    WHAT'S THE MEANING?

    A local-area network, abbreviated as LAN, is a PC network that spans a small area. A LAN is often confined to a single room or building. Although one network can be connected to other networks over any distance. This connection is possible via a telephone line or radio waves.

    DID YOU KNOW?

    Did you know that gamers used to bring their computers in a single venue to play multiplayer games? These gatherings are common before the rise of online gaming and are called "LAN parties". Most LAN parties are held within small houses between a small group of friends. Although some can be hosted in a rented venue with more than a dozen attendees. These huge events usually have a prize pot and awards to be given. Most of the games in these events are usually co-op PC games. These local co-op PC games are considered by many as a good way to meet and compete with fellow enthusiasts.

    The world's biggest LAN party was the 2013 DreamHack SteelSeries CS:GO Championship. This LAN party is usually called DreamHack Winter 2013 for short. It was held in Sweden last November 2013 and consisted of at least 26,000 visitors. Also, a whopping $250,000 community-funded prize pool was given for the championship. Despite the rise in online gaming, LAN parties are still very much popular in most circles. This is further proved by the fact that events like these are still organized periodically all over the world. Moreover, it can be seen that plenty of old games that rely on LAN connections are still popular amongst the older crowd.
