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:

Cant wait. Ready for some PUBG and Rocket League.

Ryzen means gaming fun!

Adept I

PUBG, Rainbow 6 Siege, Rocket League


Lead and Gold, Borderlands1 and 2, rocket league, open to suggestions!

As for what Ryzen means to me? Outstanding performance for seriously great value and it's only going to get better! Who wouldn't want all those cores and threads!  Can't wait for all the games to start taking advantage of them!

Adept II

Been waiting for Ryzen for 10+ years. my AMD stock has made me very happy. Thanks AMD

Quake  Champions, Battlefield 1, Left4Dead2

Journeyman III

New friend told me about this, my plan is Golf With Your Friends, from 7.30pm EST until close

[Edit] - Ryzen, is what I'll be doing when I eventually save up and replace my current processor with one, I'll be 'Ryzen' above the rest.

Adept II

I'm Ready been awhile its always a good time.

Adept II

It's been a while but I'm glad we are getting it back together again

Still hoping to see a signed up list like you usually have to show who is signed up and what # sign-up they are so we know if we made first 50 and so we know who signed up and who to pester to sign up.

I would like to see this as well, I counted the replies and I think I am very close to the 50th but hopefully not over that. I don't get email notifications for anything on here for some reason so I didn't know about it right away. I haven't missed one of these vlans yet.

thats just how they do it, you're either one of the first 50, or not. comments here dont really mean anything. at least thats how they've all been like so far. hope you do get in tho, cause the last swag bag was pretty sweet imo. i loved the tshirt. i even got a amd themed micro quad copter during the first VLAN.

Comments on here do mean something! The comments are part of the signup!


well yea, i was referring to the swag bag in question


thay have the list on the page i seen it

Adept II

Battlerite, Golf With Friends, and maybe whatever someone else is playing.

Ryzen means the ability to create, and share a bit of who I am with others. Sad didn't make it into the first 50.

Adept I

Ryzen IS multithreading!

PUBG and Rocket League.

Journeyman III

Sounds neat! Look forward to it and the possibility of free gear .

What Ryzen means to me: The reignition of competition in the CPU market, a fairly priced and powerful CPU that allows me to play games and stream so smoothly. More than that, I am glad to spend money on AMD CPUs; they are the product of legal and sound business decisions that I am happy to support.

What games I play: Quake Champions, Titanfall 2, For honor, DOOM 2016.  Killing floor 2/Destiny 2 if friends are around to play with(not much fun solo heh).

Adept I

this sound great. Rocket League.

Ryzen is a lot of threads for development

Adept II

Been awhile since we've had a VLAN. Count me in!

I'm in

wildcard1978 btw

Adept II

Titanfall2, L4D 2, Destiny 2, Warframe, Golf With Friends, Dirty bomb

Ryzen means better performance in everything but for gaming but still is better if you have a older cpu.

Adept II

I don't have a pc right now it shorted and fried everything, i can get on discord am i still eligible for giveaways and prizes? i only have my tablet for discord


I believe so long as ya sing up ect and enter the drawing day of the vlan rules also listed  under vlan rules. I know your over 18 hehe


i read the rules doesnt say anything except bring your own games hoping AMD would give better information on the subject

Adept III

Sign me up

Edit: This is DripAndRip btw. And Ryzen has brought great perfromance at a very affordable price to the cpu market.


I am stuck at work Mar 2nd,  however I may make the tail end of the event,  I have my fingers crossed.

Adept II

woot woot!!! Can't wait to see everyone there!! Vlan hype!!!

Journeyman III

me encanta AMD por que ofrece todo y mucho mas aun costo menor además un gran rendimiento en sus graficas

Adept I

Can't wait!  I'll be at work for the first half and hopefully free to game after I get home.

BF1, PUBG, Rocket League, Team Fortress 2, The Division.

Adept III

Nice to see the new guy around as we have been adsent of folks in those postions.

Also .... i was part of the last one & while I didnt get any of the partisipation prizes that where given away ... my enjoyment was cause of being able to game/socializes with some of the more popular streamers & amd fans. So I definately look forward to that friday.

As for games I have pubg, quake champions, golf with friends, fortnite, rocket leauge as my titles i can partisipate in on friday so would like to nominate those for the day.

And as someone whoms saving to upgrade from my FX 8350 system I currently use to a ryzen ... IF anything is givin away I apreciate the oportunity for some help with doing so. So again thank you amd & amd sponcers for whatever does show up in that reguard.

What does Ryzen mean to me.   The best processor for the money that has allowed me to start a YouTube channel with a new system and a VR set up.



Titafall 1 or 2

Wolfenstein 2 the new colosus

Yay for top 50 swag bag recipients!


My screen name is absolutely "pending confirmation" you didn't need to give me some many swag bags! Others are going to be super envious! Haha

LOL I thought my name was "Pending Confirmation"... You too?


It looks like PUBG is the favorite so far.


Adept III

I sure hope I am one of those last few "pending confirmation". Thank you for doing these awesome things AMD! I know that obviously AMD employees aren't eligible for these thing as usual but what about the red team + members? I'm just wondering since they aren't employed by AMD.

@derrickgott007 is on the list and he's an AMD red team plus member, at least I thought he was a +member.

As far as I know he is still but I can't guarantee that.

I am assuming that the giveaways during the vlan have different restrictions than the swag bags as well so either way they know what they're doing I was just wondering whether they are eligible or not.


There is no Red Team + anymore
