What PDXLAN attendees are saying:
- Despite the size of the events there’s not only a sense of community, but also a sense of family. ~Heath C.
- I feel this is the safest gaming community where I don’t have to deal with harassment or toxic behavior. ~Tessa M.
- The community is not only generous with the charities, but with each other. They are always willing to help others. ~Michael W.
- I have been attending for over 10 years, and have seen multiple times the community come together and donate spare parts to build someone in need a gaming PC, or upgrade someone that could not afford to do so. I love that the sponsors don’t behave as outsiders or benefactors but rather as a part of the Event’s Community. It really is a group of great people. ~Dante
- The tournaments never feel like “try hard” situations. It’s very casual and usually everyone has a good time. I’ve never experienced a situation where I could stomp someone into the ground in a game, and they come to my seat and say they had a blast. It’s honest sportsmanship and good times in all the tournaments. ~Steven P.
- When I went to this last event I didn’t have anyone else to game with. I really needed a space to unwind. After I arrived I reached out and it wasn’t even the end of the 1st day I had an entire group to play with. ~Zach R.
- PDXLAN defines “Community” better than any other real world community I’ve been in. People help each other, support each other, and when they can, they give back. ~Joe S.
