AMD Superfan VLAN - March 2nd


It has been a whole year since Ryzen began making waves in how the world defines high-performance computing and what better way to celebrate than to get together and game?!

Starting on March 2nd at 12pm CT/6pm GMT, we'll be on the AMD Twitch channel and the Red Team Discord playing all kinds of games for TWELVE hours! Ready your engines, because AMD Ryzen favorite, Robert Hallock, will be kicking off the event with some Rocket League!

Want to join in the gaming and maybe get some cool swag? There's only so much time for so many people. After reading the rules below, get yourself registered by replying to this thread and filling out this form, because the first 50 people will get some Red Team swag bags and the rest will get t-shirts!

Be sure to let us know what games you want to play & what Ryzen means to you in your replies below! If you’re not able to game, but want to hang out anyway, then hop on Twitch and Discord and join us in chat!

This will be a Bring Your Own Game event, so make sure your favorite multiplayer titles are up to date. Even if we're not playing it on stream, you can totally get groups together with the other Ryzen Superfans!

And, of course, there will be giveaways happening throughout the event! How does a WHOLE DESKTOP TOWER PC sound? Well, we have NINE to give, but alas, they're only available to residents in the US and Canada, minus Florida, New York, Puerto Rico, and Quebec. Please read the full rules for the giveaway to make for your best chances!

#49 and #50 never got back to me, so I'm moving forward as if they didn't complete registration in time. As such, the two who can expect swag bags are:

49 2.0: drg197

50 2.0: swaccelerated

WOOPS - darkwolfca made it in there twice because spreadsheets make me go cross-eyed. So, next on the list is mr.bunny HOORAY!

The following list of people completed registration before the cutoff and are getting tshirts! Now, in no particular order:

Wohoo! About time

re: games - Rocket League, Quake Champions, PUBG, Killing Floor 2, Warhammer: Vermintide, Golf with Friends

Adept III

I can Hardly wait!!!!!  WOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

My list of games are as follows:

Quake Champions

Killing Floor 2

Rocket League

Left for Dead 2



What does Ryzen mean to me? Multitasking for under $500! Gaming, Yes, my Ryzen 7 1700X in Red Phoniex can handle whatever I've thrown at it so far, and has allowed me to follow my dream of becoming a streamer. I love Ryzen

look what came today...

Adept III

Awesome! Looking forward to some gaming madness

Adept I

Soooo hyped!!!!!!

What Ryzen means to you?: My Ryzen 7 1700x allows me to be able to chill with friends and play awesome games. Not to mention streaming !


7 Days to Die

Golf with Your Friends




Adept II

Count me in once again man! I love these events.

Volunteer Moderator

Count me in for some Rocket League and Battlefield 1  

Adept I

In, nice to see.

Likely play anything i have that comes up.

what Ryzen means to me?

CPU value.

Adept I

Oh Happy days!

Pubg, World of tanks, Quake, Overwatch, Heroes of the storm, Dead by Daylight are games I play mostly ( I play some other but much less)

Ryzen is like a dream to me! Whenever I wake up, ryzen is gone and I'm stuck with FX8350 XD

Anyway, Ryzen means a real solution for different types of editing, gaming and streaming all in one!

Hopefully, I'll be able to buy Ryzen after summer

FX 8370, fx 8350 we basically the same CPU.


Back then, I wanted to buy 9590 but my old mobo supported till 125w cpus

Adept II

Excellent! Can't wait!

Adept II

Yeahh Vlan


Fantastic! Looking forward to playing Quake Champions, PUBG, and anything else really!

Adept III

hell yeah, count me in.

I'm down to play whatever. I'm here for the people and the fun.

What Ryzen means to me? Gaming and streaming on one system. Means more time with friends tearing it up.

Adept III

So down to join another vlan. Ill play whatever. And ryzen means best bang for buck.

Count Me in!! Been waiting to long for this! Ryzen means to me ... I wish! FX 8370 is what I got so it's what I love.. til I get a Ryzen.

1, MechWarrior


3. Quake Champions

4. Golf with friends

Looking forward to seeing you all there!



+1 for MechWarrior Online,  If I can make it home from work in time for the tail end of the event that is. 

Adept I

Well let's see if this time I can get some swag, should be under the top 50 at least with the thread only having been viewed by 8 people when I filled out the form LOL.

edit) oh never mind I guess... as it obviously is US+Can only this time (totally makes sense for a Virtual LAN "Kappa").

Games I want to suggest:

Dirty Bomb (F2P)

Golf with your friends

Heroes of the Storm

Adept I

This sounds rather cool. I'd suggest Heroes of the Storm or Battlefield 1.

Ryzen is just a really good processor design to me, Threadripper and Epyc make me a little bit envious. Just a little.

Adept II

Will have to repost once I figure out which games I can get downloaded.  Looking forward to this

fps games have been causing me issues lately, but will try again in vlan




quake champions

Quake Champions

Killing Floor 2

Ryzen means I can get a gaming pc for a decent price.
I'm dying to start a build with one. 🙂

Adept II

To me, Ryzen basically means high performance for an affordable price.

The games I'd like to play with people are any of the Dark Souls games, GTA 5, Don't Starve Together, Rampage Knights, Dying Light, Killing Floor 2, Left 4 Dead 2, Rocket League, Warframe, and Zombie Army Trilogy. But I'll play whatever else other people are playing if I have the game of course. Thanks!

Journeyman III

Welp, I'm in Quebec so no swag for me. Maybe I can still join up for gaming?

As for Ryzen, it's definitely something that disrupted the status quo in the CPU industry. Really beneficial to consumers after such a long time of semi-monopoly by Intel.

Here are games I'd suggest (many probably were already suggested):

Fortnite (Both BR and PvE are fun)


Roblox (for the memes )


Rainbow Six Siege

You can definitely join for the gaming!

Adept III

YAY !!! im signed up !! been LONG overdue !!

Are you going to add a link to show who is signed up like they have done in the past I filled out the form but there seems to be nowhere to verify it went thru.

We'll be updating the roster! And here's me confirming you personally!

Yay!  Love me some VLAN!

Adept I

Ghost Recon Wildlands, Battlefield, The Division

Ryzen means great performance / price and excellent multithreading.

Adept I


The Ryzen for me would represent freedom.  Freedom to finish my music projects, stream and play games without many of the limitations I have to experience now. 

I'd love to be able to crank up PUBG and get those chicken dinners!! Or maybe revisit the Far Cry or Assassin's Creed universe

Adept I

Nice , has been quite some time since the last VLAN

wait ... what ?!?!?!

"Participants must be a resident of the United States or Canada (excluding Quebec). "

Seriously AMD ?


Change made There will be restrictions with giveaways during the stream due to geographic location, but everyone can join and play!

yes Quebec will be skipped or the company will have to pay for taxes or something on top of the free gift. and they already probably pay for shipping on top of that


Too long indeed!

Adept II

Yaaaaaay!! ❤️ VLAN ❤️ 

Games : PUBG , SIEGE , GTA V , Golf with your friends , Rocket league & Battlefield 1

Adept I

Lol. Missed you guys and these events.

Games: PUBG, Paladins, Overwatch
