Organised Chaos LANs usually incorporate both PC and console networking, and cater for amateur and professional gamers.

Some of the popular games played at Organised Chaos events include Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Counter Strike: Source, and DotA.

Organised Chaos LANs are usually held in Cape Town, Bloemfontein and PE.

NAG LAN – rAge

It’s impossible to list the biggest LANs in the country without mentioning the rAge LAN.

The annual event sees gamers from all over the country scramble for tickets to be part of the colossal gaming marathon, which features over 2,000 gamers.

PC gaming is dominant here, although, console gamers do make appearances within the confines of the LAN cage fence.

Johannesburg and Pretoria gamers should be aware of dAZLAN, as the group holds PC gaming LANs within the Centurion area.

The dAZLANs take place at the Sytse-Wierda Hall in Centurion, and the facilities feature a Gigabyte Network and snack shop.

dAZLAN also often holds competitions, with great prizes on offer.

Ground Zero LAN

The Ground Zero LANs have shown to be active events in the gaming LAN field of South Africa.

Ground Zero’s goal is to bring LANs to Johannesburg South, something the team says was lacking in the area.

Some of the games on offer at Ground Zero LANs include Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, DotA, LoL, Teeworlds, and Trackmania.

The LANs are hosted at the Klipriviersberg Recreational Center, on the corner of Peggy Vera and Sunningdale Road, Kiblerpark.
