When is the LAN?

22-24 April, 2022

Where is the LAN?

Ghent, Belgium

What is the venue like?

Barvatar is a brand new bar and gaming café opening in September. We will have exclusive access to 26 PCs. 6 are in the state of the art training room and the other 20 in the club area. Next to the club area we have our own area to relax, drink and watch the matches as well as access to a professional streaming set-up if we choose.

Once Barvatar opens we will try to share more information about the venue and what you can expect when visiting.

Do I have to bring my own equipment?

Everything (pc, mouse, keyboard, headset) is present what you need at the lan venue. You can bring and use your own peripherals if you please. Don't forget to save your config somewhere online, as plugging in an USB stick probably won't work

How are the desks setup at the venue?

In total there are 26 PC's:

  • 6 PC's are available in the training room

  • 20 PC's are in the club area (5x2 - 5x2)

For the 6v6 tournament we will use this layout (a letter is one team) for the 3 teams playing the club area:

A A A A A | A X C C C
B B B B B | B X C C C

Can I come visit the lan as a spectator?

Ofcourse! We have our own area to relax, drink and watch the matches on multiple screens inside the venue. Streaming will be done from inside the broadcasting room at the venue.

Where can i park my car in ghent?

Parking inside the city center of ghent is quite expensive (average 10-15 eur/day) depending where you park. If you drive an old car, you won't also be allowed to enter the city center. If you want to save some more money for drinking beers, I suggest you park at one of the free parking spots outside the city center, and come by public transport (bus, tram). Ghent is reasonably small and has a good public transport. Personally, I'd recommend parking at Flanders Expo. Full list here: https://visit.gent.be/en/good-know/practical-information/how-get-ghent/car/pr-car-parks

How is public transport in Ghent?

It's fine. Trams and busses will take you anywhere in the city. The LAN venue is really close to a big public transport stop (Gent zuid).

If your own country has measures in place that stop you attending we will need to discuss refunds on a case by case basis.

The 6v6 team tournament will be held across Saturday and Sunday. It will most likely be a group stage followed by double elimination bracket. You will be required to be available to play on Saturday morning so will need to arrive in Ghent on Friday 22nd April. In some rare circumstances we may be able to place your team in a group which will play later in the day but this will be decided on a case by case basis.

How much does a ticket cost?

An early bird team ticket costs €360 this can be broken down to €30 per player per day. Your ticket also includes €20 back in food and drink allowance per player per day.
