      Glad you had fun! See you at our next event in April :)

  • Richard L.

    Hey, do you guys have any spare computers that can be used on the Sunday for the Starcraft II tourny? If so, how many? Thanks.

    December 14, 2012

    • Blair M.

      Looks like we have 3, although 1 might be a little bit flacky. Make sure you bring your own mouse, mouse pad, keyboard and headphones.

      December 15, 2012

    • Richard L.

      Cool, thanks for that!

    • JB H.

      that's what I like to see - captialise from the weak communities :)

      December 15, 2012

  • Carl

    What are the details for H4 if its up and running - you guys have stuff all time to sort it out. I know plenty of guys that would be keen to rock up and compete, depending on team size required etc.... I'd recommend 1v1;s or 2v2 - larger teams will mean great numbers required which basically means H4 wont even get off the ground in Brisbane - LMK!!!

    November 21, 2012

    • Blair M.

      Hi Carl, sorry for everything taking a long time. Details are up at http://www.aclpro.com...­

      December 5, 2012

    • Blair M.

      Hi Carl, Just wanted to notify you that due to a lack of interest in the ACLPro thread (where the tournament was being organised) the guys from ACLPro who were going to run the tournament have cancelled it. You are still more than welcome to come along and play some Halo 4, but unfortunately there won't be a tournament this time around :(

      December 14, 2012

  • Blair M.

    Just a reminder to everyone, the aircon in the venue gets very cold. Make sure you bring a jumper!!

    December 14, 2012

  • Hoang

    hey guys i would like to ask if there gona be a cs go comp or anyone gona be playing cs go there? cause i only play cs go and hon. but cant wait to be at this lansmash party 1st time in my life.

    December 14, 2012

    • Blair M.

      There isn't a planned CS GO comp, but I did see a few people playing it last LAN. So you should be able to find others who are interested in playing CS GO.

  • Cedric B.

    What do people normally do for the overnight? They organise a sleep over at a friends place or go home? or share accommodation?

    December 13, 2012

    • Cedric B.

      Do you find some people sleeping in their car?

      December 13, 2012

    • Sean

      I've never seen that haha. And I don't think Lansmash will condone it :P

      December 13, 2012

  • JB H.

    QSAC have contacted me and warned that the current main entrance/exit into QSAC at Gate B off Kessels Road will be closing as part of the Mains and Kessels Intersection Upgrade. The new main entrance and exit point will be at Gate A off Mains Road. Access and exit is also available left turn in/left turn out at Gate C off Kessels Road. I’ve attached a map to explain (let me know if it doesn’t make any sense).

    See you this weekend!

  • Rashaun

    I got a full team for dota2 and our tag is ForeveR. Was wondering what is happening with the tourney? What format will it be or how the tourney will be run? Also, how much are you looking into for players to chip into the price pool for dota2 if it has to be done?

    December 13, 2012

    • Blair M.

      Hi Rashaun, Dota2 details are on the challonge page (http://summersmash201...­). If you and your team can arrive by midday on Saturday we'll be able to get everyone who is participating together and decide if everyone wants to chip in extra money for a prize pool. Most likely it will be either $5 or $10 each player. We usually get 1-2 additional teams on the day of people who want to play but don't have a team of their own.

      December 13, 2012

  • Malonik

    Few questions regarding the SSF4AE tournament...

    Does the $20 entry fee for the day cover signing up for the tournament, otherwise how much is it?

    Are there any prizes on offer for it?

    Is this a serious tournament or more for lolz?

    Lastly, am I right in assuming all I'd need to bring is my stick/pad?

    December 12, 2012

    • Malonik

      If I rock up with a screen, ps3 and 2 tournament edition madcatz sticks would it be acceptable for my tournament matches to be on the ps3? ... Also sorry because I'm not trying to be difficult it's just the alternative is me spending $150 for a one time use stick.. >_>

      December 13, 2012

    • Mark R.

      If your opponents are fine with it there should not be an issue.

      December 13, 2012

  • Jayne-Louise P.

    What time do we have to be there to register for the SC2 comp on Sunday morning? Thanks! :)

    December 5, 2012

  • Nathan R.

    About the dota 2 trello board, I know that you have to be a member to add a card. The icon next to the name says that the board is public, and is visible to everyone but only those invited can edit. There doesn't seem to be a way to join the board.

    November 26, 2012

    • Blair M.

      Sorry, we've been on holidays. I don't have access either. I'll try to get JB to open it up. He's super busy currently though.

      December 5, 2012

  • Andrew A.

    What prizes are for the dota 2 competition?
    And is it also BYOC like last time?

    December 1, 2012

    • Blair M.

      Yes it is BYOC again. Still deciding on the prizes. We may end up asking the players on the day if they want to pay an additional amount of money for a prize pool.

      December 5, 2012

  • Richard L.

    Hey guys~~ Just wondering is the Starcraft II tourny going to be BYOC again?

    November 25, 2012

    • Blair M.

      Hi Richard. Yes, the Starcraft 2 tournament is BYOC.

      November 25, 2012

    • Richard L.

      Cool, thanks for that.

      November 25, 2012

  • Blair M.

    So Chivalry is on special currently in the Steam Autumn Sale. We're going to be playing some of this at the lan, so it's a perfect time to pick it up. http://store.steampowered.com/app/219640/

    November 22, 2012

  • Nathan H.

    Will there be a proper SSF4 tourney or is it just 2v2?

    November 17, 2012

    • Mark R.

      Proper 1 on 1 this time. Again just copied from last LAN. Will be be looking for helpers as well since staff Christmas party is the night before.

      November 19, 2012

    • JB H.

      Those lazy console... err... PC admins copying and pasting!

  • Justin S.

    What's this about MW3 being Free to Play this weekend?

    November 16, 2012

    • Blair M.

      The text was copied from the previous LAN. That LAN it was a free-to-play weekend. I've updated to text. Sorry about that.

      November 17, 2012

    • Justin S.

      Damn...

      November 18, 2012

  • Gavin S.

    No need to RSVP? Can we just rock up if that's the case?

    November 16, 2012

    • Sarah Anne M.

      JB, RSVPs appear to be closed until the day before, might make it a little hard to judge numbers on your end!

      November 16, 2012

    • JB H.

      Ahh - apologies all - RSVP'S ARE NOW OPEN!

      1 · November 16, 2012

  • Mod G.

    so its not far from santa smash and i'm looking to form a team or join one for dota 2 to compete.

    hit me up on steam: MeNoEngrrishhh

    & we can discuss/play.
    if you know what i mean :D

    November 15, 2012

  • JB H.

    DOTA2 PLAYERS!

    We're going to try something a little different for players to find teams and teams to find players.

    We've created a Trello page: https://trello.com/board/dota2-teams-santasmash2012/50a5c6e8888bb3380d006124

    Trello is used more for project management, but we're using it here to find players and teams.

  • Sam Y.

    is dota 2 being played?

    and are there any prizes for the winners of the tournament

    cheers, sam

    • James T.

      +1

      November 10, 2012

    • Blair M.

      DOTA2 will most likely be being played, full details TBC though.

      November 14, 2012

  • Ken

    which games will be on offer?

    1 · October 28, 2012

    • Ken

      Starcraft2

      November 9, 2012

    • Blair M.

      Starcraft 2 will be played. Full details TBC.

      November 14, 2012

  • Justin S.

    New question: Will everyone be able to whatever game they want (the limit being whatever games others are playing) or at a set period of time, we will play a set game?

    November 8, 2012

    • Justin S.

      *...able to play whatever...

      November 8, 2012

    • Blair M.

      Able to play whatever, but the admins will also organise comps and organised gameplay sessions to keep things moving.

      November 14, 2012

  • Justin S.

    Oh oh oh! I know a game that's awesome for LAN, but a bit graphics hungry... Red Faction: Guerrilla. It's great over LAN (since the online is dead :/ ) because the destruction makes everything so much more hectic. *Singularity Charges FTW*

    November 9, 2012

  • Justin S.

    I already posted this on the 2013 April event but there are more attendees here so maybe more answers?

    I'm pretty new here and I was wondering if, besides buying my own food and stuff, participation is free. I haven't heard any mention of there being any kind of entry cost, but I'm better safe than sorry.

    October 17, 2012

    • JB H.

      Exactly Sean - yes Justin we take cash on the day at the door. Cheers!

      November 7, 2012

    • Justin S.

      Thanks guys... Maybe see you there!

      November 8, 2012

  • Patrick C.

    Also - what consoles?

    November 3, 2012

    • JB H.

      Consoles will be Xbox 360's mainly with a handful of PS3's - fighters are primarily be on 360

      November 7, 2012

  • Patrick C.

    What day will SSF4 be on?
