Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why do I have to pay money to get it?

A: Your entry fee pays for LAN party expenses (i.e. location rent, network switches, servers, software, extension cords, power strips, cat5 cables, tables, etc.). However most of our past events have been at no additional fee. Once you have paid for admission to the Convention the LAN Gaming has been free. We do have several paid and unpaid events scheduled but this is usually dependent on the Convention it self if and what the Fee may be for Gaming access.


Q: Do I have to be in a clan to attend?

A: No, a lot of people show up that are not in a clan. You can play whatever games you wish to play with others. If you wish to participate in the tournaments, you can easily join a throw together team or get picked up to play for a short handed team.


Q: I am not very good at video games but I enjoy playing them, should I come?

A: Of course, anybody who enjoys playing multiplayer games and has a computer should attend our LAN Parties.
