There is to be no drinking alcohol or illicit drugs at the event. You will be immediately escorted from the event if you break this rule. Coming back to the event under the influence and being obnoxious will get you a warning and then if you don’t stop you will be asked to leave.
Due to the amount of power required by all the systems we must ask you to not bring any power consuming electronics with you. This includes speakers, microwaves, toasters, bar fridges, etc.
Cheaters will automatically be removed from the event and if it takes place during a tournament, the team as a whole will be removed from the tournament.
Any theft that takes place will result in a permanent ban on the individual and we will contact the police.
Though smack talk is common at an event such as this, we will warn then remove anyone using racist remarks, or derogatory comments.
We’ve worked hard at getting a good group of knowledgeable staff on hand to help with issues. We ask that you do NOT touch the network or any other SAN LAN equipment.
Don’t share anything that you wouldn’t want everyone to see.
Respect the people helping at the event. We will not tolerate anyone disrespecting a staff member.
Sometimes we will have to make calls that you don’t like in regards to tournaments, rules, or the network. In the end the staff has the final say.
Headphones only, please. No speakers allowed. This many speakers in one place would create an incredible noise and distract those around you.
A surge suppressing power strip is provided to protect your equipment from surges. Uninterruptible Power Supplies are not allowed because these drain excessive power from our power grid and will cause an outage (including UPS’s built into power strips).
You are responsible for any damage done to the building. This includes soda spills and damage to tables. We will pass any charges from the building on to you to any damage done.
There is no smoking in our venue. There is a smoking area outside the venue.
We have a limited amount of internet bandwidth, we do our best to give the best gaming experience to everyone at the LAN. This means no torrenting or streaming. If a staff member asks you to check for viruses or programs running in the background please do what you can to help. If we can’t find you or figure out who’s PC it is we are seeing the traffic come from there is also a chance your network port will be turned off until we can track you down to find the problem.
Ticket price is $50 for tournament and BYOC LAN Party entry and spectator passes are $10. Tickets must be pre purchased on the website. No ticket sales at the door.
Our location has parking available around the building and an underground parking garage. You can pull up and bring your hardware in and then park. We recommend you park in the underground parking garage.
Is my system safe?
You are responsible for keeping your area secure. That means don’t leave things sitting around that someone could snatch up. We also ask everyone to keep an eye on your neighbors. If you see someone poking around that isn’t the person sitting there don’t be afraid to say something to them or to staff.
Is my system too powerful?
The total wattage of your power supply isn’t a concern, it is the amount of power that your computer draws. It is generally more of an issue when running multiple video card configurations. We don’t police this unless we start to have power issues on your circuit. If we have issues, we may ask you to turn off SLI or Crossfire while at the event to prevent other issues.
Can I bring a game server?
Do not bring any game servers. We will provide dedicated local servers for CS:GO and other games if possible.
Multiple monitors and screen size limitations
Due to both space and power limitations we don’t allow multiple monitor configurations. As for larger monitors, the general rule of thumb is that you need to be able to fit ALL of your monitor in a 3 foot wide desk space. We can’t allow things to hang off the table into the isles because they can become an obstruction.
What do we use for voice communication at the LAN?
We are open to playing anything, we do ask that you post about what games you want to play on our forums ahead of time. That way we can get it on our game list and we can make sure our network is configured to handle it properly.
Can I rent a PC or Monitor?
We do not offer that option at this time.
How are giveaway prizes handled?
Every person who pays for a seat gets a entry for the giveaway prizes. Everyone’s number go into the drum for prize drawings. If you are not in the building or do not respond in a timely manor we will put your ticket back into the drum.
