  • Attendees are welcome to sleep at home, or at a hotel, over night. We take special precautions to secure the facilities, and please familiarise yourself with our late-night equipment rules (see event rules).
  • If you want to pack up your equipment each night, please do so before late-night lockdown, please check the event rules to avoid confusion.
  • Spectators are not allowed to sleep at the event.

What are the rules?
  • All participants of the computer LAN will be allocated one "unit" of space, which is approximately 1m width of table space extending to the front & back of the table. While there's room for leeway, you will be asked to organize your space if seating is tight.
  • Smoking is only allowed in the parking lot. You cannot smoke indoors, outside the entrance, or on the grass or walkway up to the entrance.
  • People are allowed to come and go as they see fit. However, property cannot leave the hall between the hours of midnight (0000hrs) and 8am (0800hrs). Your property (more specifically whatever bags/equipment/supplies you bring) will be barred exit during these hours. This is to ensure that theft does not occur.
  • Spectators are only permitted to be present at the event between 8am (0800hrs) and midnight that same day (0000hrs). Spectators will be escorted out at midnight each day. This is to also ensure theft does not occur.
  • Spectators are not allowed to bring in backpacks or other substantial bags.
  • Headphones are required, considering this please be respectful of others regarding sound. You must also be cautious of noise outdoors after 10pm. If you are rowdy you will be asked to leave at our discretion.
  • Do not modify or mess with any LANified! equipment whatsoever. If you are curious about our equipment and layout, or anything, feel free to ask us about it.

What games are people going to play?
When people sign up for our events we ask them what games they want to play. Once they have signed up our "Game Preference" list for that event updates immediately. Each event details page shows this list under the "Game Preference" section. This list is separate from the tournaments, as there are many games to enjoy above and beyond the tournaments.

What do you mean BYOC?
BYOC means Bring Your Own Computer. LANified! does not provide computers, we are not an internet cafe, we all bring our own computers too! Bringing your own computer means you don't have to worry about customizing your setup, and you can show off your rig too!

What are LAN parties?
LAN parties are events where we all get together with our computers, form a network, and play ludicrous amounts of games! Our events perpetuate a friendly, social atmosphere where you will meet all sorts of other gamers, play many games, relax and have a great time. For those who want to challenge themselves, we also offer professionally operated and structured tournaments, and less structured mini-tournaments, with fabulous prizes and gamer cred!
