Over the rest of this week and the weekend, over 10,000 gamers will be gathering in Jonkoping, Sweden for Dreamhack Winter, the world's largest LAN party.

There'll be games, parties, e-sports, food, swag, you name it, if it's got to do with PC gaming, it'll probably be somewhere at Elmia Fair, where the attendees get access to super-fast internet and around-the-clock access (the festival runs 24/7).

As you can probably imagine, setting up a LAN party for that amount of people takes an insane amount of work, so it's fascinating to see these images of the Dreamhack crew doing just that.

Oh, they are still organizing such huge LAN parties in a time in which lots of games require always online, don't support dedicated servers and stuff? Either they are playing retro games such as UT'99 or CS 1.6 or they are just filesharing or they have a really broad broadband internet connection.
