The LAN starts on Friday, 30. March 2018 at 12:00. Check out the event timetable here.
To participate in a tournament you have to be at the LAN and signed up for the tournament until 18:00 on Friday.
You can already form teams using the game channels on our discord server and signup or find the tournament rules on our website.
We strongly recommend to arrive at the LAN as early as possible, to have some spare time to setup your pc and sleeping space.
If you want to invite any visitors, we would suggest to do so on Sunday when the finals take place and the bar is open.
Please make sure you downloaded most games you want to play and updated your games before coming to the lan, to avoid unnecessary strain on our network.

You can either access the Polylan Zurich via Public transport or by Car.
If you take the public transport, take the bus to the Station ETH Hönggerberg, and from there it’s right around the corner.
If you come by car, please see this map on how to get there. If possible, form car pools to get there (see the #carpool channel on our discord server).
Parking is available for 10.- for the whole LAN, however you’ll need to pay again if you leave the parking during the LAN and want to park again (this is how we were able to get the cheap prices for the parking).

There will be a free breakfast every morning for you to get started into the day.
After the breakfast there will be hot sandwiches you can make yourself for around 3.- and Popcorn for 1.-
Friday and Sunday evening between 18:00 and 21:00 (maybe longer if a lot of people want food) we’ll have foodtrucks offering delicious food:
