Frequently Asked Questions
Is there General Admission?
To keep everyone's expensive equipment safe we don't allow spectators or general admission.
Are computers provided?
This event is Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), which means that all competitors must bring their own computer to the event. This includes a PC (or laptop), 1 monitor, a power bar, keyboard and a mouse. A networking cable will be provided.
Wil there be Wi-Fi at the event?
There will be no Wi-Fi provided at the event.
Can I compete in all of the tournaments?
Yes, all tournaments are scheduled in different sections of the time tables. You will be able to compete in all events if you wish.
Is my system safe?
We do our best to keep the people in the building just to attendees and at night we lock down the room and don't allow equipment to come or go from the building. Having said that, you are still responsible for keeping your area secure. That means don't leave things sitting around that someone could snatch up. We also ask everyone to keep an eye on your neighbours. If you see someone poking around that isn't the person sitting there don't be afraid to say something to them or to staff.
Can I have multiple monitors and what is the screen size limitations?
Due to both space and power limitations we don't allow multiple monitor configurations unless you buy a second seat. As for larger monitors the general rule of thumb is that you need to be able to fit ALL of your monitor on your 3 foot wide desk space. We can't allow things to hang off the table into the isles because it can become an obstruction.
Is the staff included in the raffle?
Staff that are volunteering their time are entered into the raffle.
What do I use for voice communication at the event?
It is strongly recommended using the Travincial Discord server.
Are there refunds?
Sadly we do not refund seat purchases. As money comes in we are picking up the supplies and equipment needed for the events as well as paying for all of our additional operating costs.
There is to be no drinking or illicit drugs at the event. Anyone caught with it will be immediately escorted from the event. Coming back to the event under the influence and being obnoxious will get you a warning and then if you don't stop you will be asked to leave.
Due to the amount of power required by all the systems we must ask you to not bring any power consuming electronics with you. This includes microwaves, toasters, bar fridges, etc.
No refunds will be given, but once the money comes in, it's put to good use on equipment or supplies.
Cheaters will automatically be removed from the event and if it takes place during a tournament, the clan as a whole will be removed from the tournament.
Any theft that takes place will result in a permanent ban on the individual and we will contact the police.
Though smack talk is common at an event such as this, we will warn then remove anyone using racist remarks, or derogatory comments.
We've worked hard at getting a good group of knowledgeable staff on hand to help with issues. We ask that you do NOT touch the network or any other Travincial equipment *projectors and consoles included.
Respect the people helping at the event. We will not tolerate anyone disrespecting a staff member.
Sometimes we will have to make calls that you don't like in regards to tournaments, rules, or the network. In the end the staff has the final say.
Headphones only, please. No speakers allowed. This many speakers in one place would create an incredible noise and distract those around you.
A surge suppressing power strip is required to protect your equipment from surges. Uninterruptible Power Supplies are not allowed because these drain excessive power from our power grid and will cause an outage (including UPS's built into power strips).
You are responsible for any damage done to the building and Travincial equipment. This includes soda spills and damage to tables. We will pass any charges from the building on to you to any damage done.
There is no smoking in our event location, this includes ecigs as well.
We typically have a limited amount of internet bandwidth, we do our best to give the best gaming experience to everyone at the LAN. We do file shaping and we keep an eye out for high bandwidth usage. This means no torrenting and if a staff member asks you to check for viruses or programs running in the background please do what you can to help. If we can't find you or figure out who's PC it is we are seeing the traffic come from there is also a chance your network will be turned off until we can track you down to find the problem.
