What does a triple-arena packed with 12,000 gamers and their rigs look like? It’s all the nest of cables, cases, and caffienated drinks you imagine it to be. Read on to peek inside the world’s largest LAN party.

So what does a gathering of that scale look like? Over at ExtremeTech they took a tour, snapping pictures of the halls, the napping geeks, and everything in between.
