Got-LAN Live:

Got-LAN live is our approach to getting out and managing news, events and live servers during the LAN.

It is split into 3 parts:

News: This will hold all the latest announcements for the LAN, during the LAN.
Events: This will hold all the information for our official events as well as sign up’s.
Live Games: The name says it all. It will show all the live servers on the network announced by anyone at the LAN! Anyone will be able to post their server into this page.

All this together will hopefully make it easier for attendees to see whats going on and get gaming quicker. It will also help with management making tournaments a much more seamless process.

You will get access to it straight from during the LAN via the Live tab.


We have recently purchased a new server dedicated to traffic monitoring and management. This will allow much more unrestricted internet access for its intended purposes while at the same time making sure we more efficiently manage traffic and block downloads.

Though please do note:

We have the internet for low bandwidth applications ONLY. This includes the likes of steam authentication, steam chat, MSN and checking your emails.

It is NOT for online gaming (currently) or downloading. This includes running your torrents. Make sure you have no downloads running before you leave to our LAN. If you are caught downloading you will be kicked out and BANNED from future Got-LAN’s.


Please make sure all your games are up to date before you leave. We have internet for steam authentication but it is NOT for updating.


Due to legal reasons we are a R16 event.

Alcohol Free:

Due to the nature of Got-LAN’s and there being minor’s around we are an alcohol free event.
