    Hey guys. I'll be playing Starcraft (About Mid Diamond Player atm) and World of Tanks (if anyone else has this game we can platoon up or w/e). I have a couple of other games as well which I might be able to play with people. Any other starcraft players wanna reply to this and let me know what league you are? I'm hoping for Andrew "Moonglade" Pender is coming as I mentioned it on his stream about 2 weeks ago. See you all there!

      Usually there is at least 3-5 bronze-gold players in the tournament, the few times i've gone. And speaking from experience as somebody who has had their anus completely eviscerated in this very tournament several times, you will learn stacks from watching the replays of people destroying you. I actually really enjoy the opportunity.

      1 · November 28, 2013

    • Blair M.

      We usually have quite a few starcraft 2 players at the LAN. We weren't planning on running a SC2 tournament this LAN, but that doesn't mean that you can't. Even if there's no tournament I know there's been a few people asking if anyone else plays SC2. Also, are you commenting on the correct event? This one was back in April, the next LAN is at http://www.meetup.com...­

    What do we do for beverages? Should we bring our own water etc? My first LAN :S

    April 5, 2013

    • James D.

      We provide cold drinks in the form of bottled water and soft drinks for $1 each. You also get a drink included in the $10 if you order on one of the lunch or dinner runs we provide. Please note there are no ATMs at the venue so bring cash!

    will be attending with 4 others for the dota2 comp. 5 spaces needed please! :) cya saturday

    1 · April 4, 2013

    • Blair M.

      Hi Phil, that'll be fine. You won't get the sole use of the computers, but you'll be able to use them when you have games to play. So bring your keyboard, mouse and headset and once your game is over, unplug your stuff to let someone else use the computer for their game, and then when it's your turn again, plug in again and away you go!

      April 5, 2013

    • phil

      thanks. you guys are putting on a great event!

  • Sean C.

    With regards to the SC2 comp, was there definitely enough computers for everyone to use that can't bring their own?

    April 4, 2013

    • Blair M.

      This is kind of a difficult question to answer. If 100 people turn up for the competition without computers then we won't have enough. However, the last 4 or 5 times that we have run this we haven't had a problem. You just don't get a computer for your own use, when you finish your game you need to unplug your gear and let someone else play their game. It's worked well in the past and I believe it will work fine again today. Just make sure you bring your own keyboard, mouse and headphones at a minimum.

    hey, no-one replied to my previous post. So I feel I should ask again. I'm brining my team for dota comp and I'm wondering if there is any comps spare? I will bring mine and try to get other to bring theirs but I'm pretty sure one of us won't.

    April 4, 2013

    • Blair M.

      Hi Conon, sorry your post got missed. We have at least 10 machines dedicated to the dota 2 tournament. BYOC is still preferred as then we'll be able to have more game going at once, but yes, there are computers spare.

      April 4, 2013

    • Conor

      awesome. i asked the guys, and 3 of us will bring PC's 1 laptop and haven't heard from our fourth member so far.

    Hey everyone, so I play all the games mentioned here but recently I've been loving Natural Selection 2. Just curious if anyone else has played it and / or would be interested in some rounds.

    April 3, 2013

    • JB H.

      Can anyone make a LAN server for this ?

      April 4, 2013

    • Blair M.

      JB, we have a LAN server for this. It's on Simon's server. We set it up last time.

      April 4, 2013

  • Ryan S.

    The laptop I'll be bringing doesn't have a LAN port, will there be wireless internet passwords given to competitors?

    April 3, 2013

    • JB H.

      Heya Ryan - there is wireless. I might have a USB ethernet adaptor to get you out of trouble.

      April 4, 2013

    • Ryan S.

      Thanks JB, appreciate it.

  • jack p.

    how do these things work in 12 and I've never been to a LAN party
    so do you only play the games that are on the schedule or can you organize to play your own choice of games and do you bring your own computer or do they supply the computers

    April 3, 2013

    • Blair M.

      Since you've never been to a LAN party before, we recommend that you try to bring a friend or two with you. You'll find the overall experience more enjoyable. However, the people who come along to the LAN are all good people and you should be able to introduce yourself to the people around you and play some games with them. Don't forget as well to walk around the LAN and see what everyone else is playing so you know what you can join in! :D

      April 3, 2013

    • jack p.

      kk ty ill see whether another one of my friends can come

      April 3, 2013

  • Jason Z.

    Yo, do you guys need an extra hand setting up on Friday? what time are you guys rocking up at qsac?

    April 3, 2013

    • Blair M.

      Help setting up is always welcome. If you come from 3pm or 4pm that'd be great! Thanks.

      April 3, 2013

    • JB H.

      Yes 3pm onwards most of the gear should be there - thanks to everyone who helps setup!

    cant make it up there as our work oven broke and i am going to be at work until it gets fixed

    March 2, 2013

    • Blair M.

      We'll have a think (and maybe someone who sees this lives nearby and could give you a lift), but worst case if you're happy arriving early and leaving late I can always give you a lift. West End isn't too far out of the way.

    Hey, so can I bring my own chair?
    Off the top of my head, I'd be keen to:
    GTA 4
    Chivalry: Medieval Warfare
    Sniper Ghost Warrior
    L4D2
    Red Faction Guerrilla
    Brink
    Borderlands 2
    Dead Island

    April 1, 2013

    • Sensator

      Feel free to bring your chair as long as it's not too wide so that someone else can fit at the desk. Chivalry, L4D2 and Borderlands 2 are pretty much a definite, any other games you'll have to drum up some interest on the day :)

      @Oliver Smart
      We are not asking specific machines for dota 2, nor are we lazy. We were just wondering if there were any spare usable machines available. If you read some of my previous posts, my whole team does not have a licence. We are all coming here via public transport and we just wanna have fun.

    PC's for Starcraft & DOTA2 ! Hey guys we're working hard to secure PC's for DOTA2 and Starcraft2 tournaments for players to play on so they don't have to BYOC.

    We have secured 10 machines so far. Our goal is to have 20 machines available for play at the tournament.

    We'll keep you posted how we go, but so far we definitely have 10 machines! - JB
