There are some rumours circling around the block that we're running our next event early next year.

We started them. They're probably true.

Consider this advance notice to invest in some RGB kit for your rig, or to sharpen your Counter-Strike skills.

Good news! We're still here.

We've embarked on a venue hunt and searched high and wide. Finding a location suitable for our requirements, to deliver the best possible Respawn experience is a challenge in itself, but we've finally found something that we're happy with and we laid eyes on this venue last year.

The biggest challenge has been to bring in an Internet connection. Since our inception, there's been a gradual transition to online play, to managed server environments that require high speed, reliable Internet connectivity which is a challenge to acquire on a temporary basis. Many venues will either charge a very significant amount for this service, or won't have the facilities on-hand and require us to bring it in at significant cost, which translates to that significant cost being passed on to our attendees, especially given that we only require the service for three days per event we run.

We're currently working on a solution to this challenge and when we're done, we look forward to bringing you something awesome. For now, join in the conversation on Discord and let us know what you'd like to see at our next event.

Bookings are full?! Bug?!?!

The website is stating we cannot book and its 7 months out!!

14/3/17 trying to pre-pay for October 2017 lan!!

2-3 people please.


Hey man!

The website doesn't show the year on the front page, so that's referring to our 2016 event. We're taking a break while we find a suitable venue that's affordable and we'll let everyone know when we're back on!

A big thanks to everyone who came to our 35th large-scale LAN party! Games were played, shenanigans were had, garlic bread was eaten

Respawn LAN v35 was perhaps one of the most significant events we've run on the Respawn timeline since we started in January of 2006 - we said goodbye to our regular venue, La Trobe's Union Hall. Since the first Shafted LAN in January of 2000 and the first Respawn six years later, over 60 weekend LAN parties and 35 of them being Respawn events, it was a staple of Australia's multiplayer gaming scene; if those walls could talk, they would tell stories of glory, of friendship, of excitement that we still hear from people today.

v35 was the first event where we had the opportunity to use the venue since the refurbishment - a new ceiling, power upgrades, new lighting and climate control systems promised to offer a higher level of comfort for our attendees - all welcome changes, however it soon became apparent that this would bare a significant cost increase, one which would put at risk our ability to continue running events without a significant price increase passed on to our attendees, which we felt was not sustainable even in the short term. So the decision was made to run one event in the venue to say goodbye before embarking on our mission to find the next home for our events and we're thrilled to be back after waiting an entire year for the venue to become available again since the refurbishment works commenced.

Working with the changes - and with the new venue management at La Trobe, has given us a clearer idea on what we really want from a venue to provide the best event for our community.

A big thanks to our sponsors - NVIDIA, Gigabyte, Corsair, Plantronics Gaming, Bitfenix, Zen Gaming Lounge, Aerocool, Deepcool and Scorptec Computers for their wonderful support for our event, including the representatives who came along over the weekend and joined us.

Thanks to the overclockers who came along and to Gigabyte for supporting them.

Onto the winners of our tournaments!

Do you have plans for H29? Otherwise that seat may go to waste so we'd like to make sure it's still usable if we have a group or two (or more) people. Any objections to moving H28 to H29?

We're most likely going to remove row AA - so I have made it unbookable for now (if we do reinstate it for any reason, we'll move the booking back).

I've moved you to row C 25-29 instead, but would you prefer somewhere else?

Sorry!

Hey just wondering how the MTG Draft works. I haven't done one before, I've got a decent concept of MTG. Will there be a place to pick land from?
Thanks!


Absolutely. We'll have plenty of land to build your decks (please return it afterwards!). There will be a $20 charge to enter, keep what you draft, booster pack prizes distributed amongst the top few winners.

Heya,

We may be rearranging a few things and removing row AA from the floorplan. Do you have any preference as to where you'd like the booking to move to?

Live Update Link for Seat Bookings - PLEASE CONSULT THIS BEFORE YOUR BOOKING AS THE ABOVE IMAGE WILL NOT BE UP TO DATE

Please check the 'Live Update Link' above to be certain to see the final seating arrangements.
We will only accept bookings for users with prepaid places.
Seat booking subject to change.!

Reply to this thread with the seats you'd like to book for your group and then list the names of the players in the group as they appear in the event player list. Keep an eye on the thread for confirmation of your seat booking as it may be rejected for various reasons. We only update the seat booking image on a periodic basis so make sure no one else has taken the seats you've selected previously!

If you have a particular game you are playing, let everyone know so those have an opportunity to sit with other players of the same game.

Please note that seat bookings are only available to prepaid players (this means that all players in the group must be prepaid) and that bookings will be done on a first come, first served basis so be sure to be prepaid by then!

* You can make a booking for as large or small as you want. If you want to reserve a seat in a particular location for just yourself, that's fine too.
* Don't make a booking for group if you're the only player in the group to have prepaid - we will not accept it.
* When specifying players, make sure you use their names as it appears in the event player list.

Please note that we WILL be seating people as close together. This means that we will be doing our best to ensure that we don't have single seats in between seat booking groups if we can avoid it.
