Articles: AUCGC Officially Disbanded After 25 Years

Auburn University Computer Gaming Club
Chartered: 1996 Fall
First Meeting: 1997, March 8
TigerLAN: 2001 Fall - 2019 Fall (in-person), 2022 May (virtual)
Transitioned to virtual and TigerWAN: 2020 February
Disbanded: 2022 July

AUCGC was founded in the fall of 1996 by Ryan "Stick" Stich who ushered in the club's vibe of social gaming and innovative gameplay. The first official meeting occurred Saturday, 8 March 1997, and was attended by David aka WarHammer, Will aka Speed, Jason aka Charlie Brown, Jeremy aka Psychosia, Ryan aka Stick, Steve aka Beavis, and John aka Victor. Stick graduated in May 1998. Cary "Bandit" Pool helped the club get its permanent charter in November 1999. Jason "xero" McDonald founded and ran the first TigerLAN in Fall 2001. Stick returned in Spring 2004 to finish his graduate degree, rekindled the original vibe, and graduated again in Fall 2005. Tragically, Stick passed away in November 2006 in a motorcycle accident. The Stick Memorial Competition began at the next TigerLAN (12) in April 2007 to honor his memory and creative gameplay. Regular weekly club meetings and twice-annually TigerLANs continued until the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted them. Club adapted by shifting to virtual meetings via Discord, and also tongue in cheek transitioning TigerLAN to TigerWAN. Unfortunately, the virtual format just wasn't as sticky as the in person one and club participation feel to unsustainable levels. The club remains fond in the memories of over 50 officers, 1,000 alumni, 3,000 TigerLAN guests, and all the university staff that made it possible over the years.

Still want your gaming fix at Auburn? The social-focused Computer Gaming Club is succeeded by its more competitive sibling the Auburn ESports club. Check them out here: https://linktr.ee/auburnesports.

Articles: Visit the Auburn University Computer Gaming Club

Yelling at no0bs over the mic not doing it for you anymore? Tired of playing the same levels the same way with the same people you never see? Want to really yell at that guy camping? Want to shake hands with the guy owning everyone, then get tips over dinner?

Then you need to visit the Auburn University Computer Gaming Club. Every Friday night, a group of gamers sit together in the same room and fight it out in new and creative ways. And none of them have to bring any computers or games with them, they just show up.

Drinking a couple of beers and IMing with friends is not nearly as much fun as actually drinking with your friends -- gaming is the same way, it's a lot more fun in person.

The Computer Gaming Club (aka Gamers Club) meets every Friday in Haley Center room 3233/3223 from 7:00 PM until whenever. The only thing you'll need to bring is headphones.

Articles: Worms are afoot

Solo counted to three and threw a holy hand grenade straight into the air, FastBilly never quite grew accustomed to the taste of mad cow flesh, Scorpion ran in fear of Stick's rampant ninja roping abilities... and somehow Raze quietly managed to defiantly lead each game by ... um just sitting there.

We did a pretty good job of welcoming Worms Armageddon to the lab image with many rounds Wed night. I look forward to the upcoming competition, as each gamer comes into his own and learns how to weild the mighty girder.
