Can I bring a PC and a console?

You can bring a PC as well as a console but you can only have one switched on at any given time. This is so that we do not overload the power as our preparations are based on each person using only one PC/Console and one monitor.

Starcraft 2/League of Legends/Call of Duty Ghosts/World of Tanks/Smite/Quake Live

Games that do not have a LAN mode are not considered for tournaments. While you can play these games at the LAN we cannot make any guarantees for the quality of internet service. A tournament results in many people playing the same game at the same time which is too much for our internet connection to handle reliably enough to maintain acceptable pings needed for a competitive game.

Other Games

The games selected for tournaments are based on the feedback from surveys held periodically as well as observation of what games are played at the LAN. The best way to get a tournament for your favourite game is to start playing it at the LAN and getting other people interested in it.
