Games

We will host tournaments for the following games:
  • League of Legends
  • CS:GO
  • Overwatch
  • Dota 2
  • Hearthstone
  • Age of Empires 2
Of course you can play any game you want, and we'll host smaller events too, but these are the games you can compete in and if you're good enough even win.

There will be no cash prizes for the tournaments, but we'll have hardware prizes we'll get from the sponsors.

What to bring

  • Your PC (Laptop or Desktop PC, as long as it can connect via LAN cable to the internet)
  • Keyboard & Mouse
  • Headset (Important: No speakers are allowed at the LAN party!)
  • A sleeping bag and if you want a mat to sleep on
  • Controller, HOTAS, anything you need to play your favourite games
Please make sure that you update your PC before you get to the LAN party, and install all games you want to play.

Food

We will again have a bar where you can buy drinks and snacks for cheap prices.
We're also negotiating with some food trucks, so that you'll be able to get delicious food from them during special hours (which will be announced on the website once the details are fix).
You won't have to preorder your food with your registration, but you can just get some food at the LAN itself when you feel hungry.

Please note that the LAN takes place on the easter weekend 2018, so most restaurants & shops will be closed most of the event.

Sleep

We will provide some quiet areas for you to sleep in. Do not forget to bring a sleeping bag!

Showers

Because no one wants to go 4 days without showering, we will organize some showers for you. Bring a towel and some soap with you to be able to enjoy the shower.
Important: Please bring some flip-flops, sandals or alike for the way from the LAN to the showers. It's not far, but the way to the showers is made of gravel, and because parties are held there, some glass shards may lay around.

How to get there

The HXE is easily accesible by public transport. Just take the bus to the station ETH/Hönggerberg and after that it's about 2 min walk to the HXE. You can also get there by car, please use the route on this map, and do not use the road marked by the red blocks.

We are negotiating with the ETH so that we can use the parking on the Hönggerberg. You'll have to pay a fee to use the parking, but we can't say yet how much the fee will be.
