Intrepid PC gamers host DOOM LAN-party on Mt. Elbert

Thursday, 24th July 2014 14:19 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Tek Syndicate, Austin Evans, Newegg, and Linus Media Group one day decided they wanted to break the world record for the “highest altitude terrestrial LAN-party”. Which mountain did they choose? Why, Mt. Elbert of course.

In the video below, the team talks about the trip, the tech they used, and there’s also footage of the guys climbing to the summit, where the LAN-party was held.

If you are thinking: “bah! it’s just the summit,” know that the altitude is 14,461 feet. I can barely make it up a small incline.

The official video from Tek Syndicate is below and more videos of the excursion are posted on the official website.

    I remember watching them talk about this ages ago, funny they actually did it.

    A video about a LAN party without a second of the actual game, my guess is that they don’t have even played.

    Only geeks and nerds would climb a mountain to have a LAN party on a jury-rigged router. I absolutely loved watching this!

    Eh, I think they did. They had OBS on their systems. No one would go to that level of detail if they hadn’t done it.
