Valuable prizes from our sponsors will be raffled off throughout the event; just by spending time there you may be randomly selected to win! Additionally, two large prize raffles will be done at the end of each day. This is something you do not want to miss as you could be walking home with some great prizes!

Overnight & Sleeping
All Tournaments will end by Midnight Saturday and will resume the following day (see schedule for full details). We will have game servers running overnight and will do our best to facilitate casual gameplay throughout the night. Please note: The event is a “lock-in” between 12am and 7am. During this time large equipment (computers, monitors, etc) cannot be checked out. If you leave during this time the building will be locked and you’ll be unable to get back in without first making arrangements with campus security.

If you don’t plan to game overnight, but need a place to stay, there is also a hotel located nearby (information can be found on the location page).

Standard BYOPC Seats:
We have (141) standard BYOC (Bring Your Own Computer) seats $35 purchased online, $40 at door (If any tickets are remaining).

Premium BYOPC Seats:
We have up to (36) premium BYOC (Bring Your Own Computer) seats $50 purchased online, $55 at door (If any tickets are remaining). Premium seats include extra space, a better LANyard, and a small welcome package of snacks to get you gaming comfortably in no time!

MORE STREAMING BANDWIDTH! As networks at LAN parties must be regulated to ensure that traffic does not negatively affect gameplay, we have a few allotted add-on tickets for those who would like to have bandwidth sufficient for streaming in HD. An additional $5 and your LAN login will be provided with substantial upload speeds.

Only (1) seat/ticket per person. You may buy more than one ticket, but they must be distributed to another person.

Spectators may enter the event for free, but please do not hang around too long.
