Introducing Respawn LAN v3: g0t ninja?
Respawn LAN version 3 is yet another installment of Respawn LAN's superior events! With a capacity of 400 players, we will be offering plenty of activities to keep you occupied. We're doing a Ninja theme this time around. Respawn v1 is a BYO-PC event, that is, all attendees are required to bring their own computer to participate in the event. In addition, NGU will be setting up an XBOX LAN at our event so console gamers may wish to bring an XBOX/XBOX 360 and a small TV or display device. Some NGU consoles will be available for all to use throughout the event.
Locateted in Latrobe University's Union Hall, the event will have a capacity of approximately five hundred players, offering reliable three-phase power and air-conditioning for superior comfort and gaming experience. This venue also has shower facitilies. Union Hall has also been home to numerous Shafted events in the past.
Latrobe University, Bundoora Campus
Kingsbury Drive, Bundoora, Victoria, Australia.
You can use a map (thanks to Latrobe University, modifications by Shafted LAN) which we strongly advise you to PRINT OUT AND TAKE WITH YOU.
A rock-solid Cisco powered 100Mbit/sec fully switched network with a gigabit backbone will ensure lag-free game-play without the burden of overloading switch uplinks. The network will be configured using DHCP so set your network card to obtain an address automatically to connect to the network. This is the default configuration of Windows operating systems. PLEASE DISABLE INTERNET CONNECTION SHARING if you are using it as it will interfere with our network.
Dedicated game servers will be provided for many popular games, freeing your PC to give you the best frame-rate possible. A list of servers will be published closer to the event. This will include Quake 3 (DM and Instagib), Quake 4, UT2004, Battlefield 2, Battlefield 1942, Call of Duty 2 among many others.
This will include our Battlefield 2 64 player server which will host a large organised game.
We're still finalising details and prizes for competitions however we aim to offer the following:
We'll also be running AFK competitions throughout the event including the increasingly popular hard drive throwing (hard drives supplied but you are welcome to bring your own!)
- Battlefield 2 8v8
- Counter-Strike Source 5v5
- Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter (demo version so everyone can play!)
- Quake III Instagib free-for-all
- Hard drive throwing!
- Warcraft III DOTA
- Warcraft 3 1v1
Trophies will be awarded to winners of some of these competitions.
There will be plenty of other activities to keep you entertained at the event. NGU Gaming League will be attending, running a side-event with networked XBOX and XBOX 360 consoles. There will be small giveaways throughout the event. Who knows what else we may have planned? :)
Food and drink
We will be running BBQs throughout the event for our hungry lanners free of charge. In addition, we will also be organising a large pizza run. If you feel like a fat fix, McDonalds is located approximately 20 minutes wallk or a short drive away.
Feel like a fresh start to Sunday morning? We'll be cooking you BREAKFAST before competitions resume. Yum!
We will also be selling soft-drink at the event for $1 a can and bottles of water (price TBA).
Computer Hardware vendors
We are still working with vendors to confirm presence at Respawn LAN v3.
Registration for this event is MANDATORY. Registration for our events is a three step process: Firstly, you need to register on the AusGamers system. Secondly, two weeks prior to the event, confirmations will open. This is for people who have already registered as well as people who register within two weeks of the event; you must confirm your registration. Thirdly, you must check-in at our event upon arrival - note that those who have not registered and confirmed may not be permitted to attend the event. If you can't register, send us an e-mail using the link on AusGamers - this will apply if you have a free e-mail address. This is the last event to use the AusGamers system as we will launch our own integrated reigstriation system for v4!
