Introducing Respawn LAN v6.
Respawn LAN v6 is the latest installment of quality LAN gaming from Respawn. With a maximum player
count of 400, high speed network and a large prize pool, we continue our tradition in running the best LAN
gaming events in Melbourne.
The event will be running from Saturday January 12th at 10AM till Sunday January
13th finishing at 3PM
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 professionally engineered rock-solid Cisco powered gigabit network with a multi-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), Call of Duty 4, Team Fortress 2, 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.
The competition line-up for this event includes the following:
This event will also see the return of AFK competitions throughout the event including the
increasingly popular hard drive throwing (hard drives supplied but you are welcome to bring your own!)
- Counter-Strike Source 5v5 - $750 prize to winning clan
- Quake III Instagib free-for-all
- Warcraft III DOTA - $250
- Warcraft 3 1v1 - $150 first prize, $50 second.

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. There will be a
room with game consoles networked for those who feel like a break, 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.
McDonalds Kingsbury is located a 15-20 minute walk from the venue. Presentation of your Respawn
LAN v4 tag will entitle you to a 10% discount for the duration of the event. We will also be
awarding McDonalds food vouchers as prizes throughout the day for some of the AFK and other competitions.
