Inspiration has just hit. ATIX is starting pretty soon, might be worth piling round to someones house for a big-screen viewing of some of the fights?

Cool idea, man. Did you intend to try and watch them live? Because that would be tough to pull together in our TZ. On every day of the tourney the matches start at 15.00 Eve time which by my reckoning is 12.30am and go until about 8am. Ooer.

If you're referring to VODs then that'll probably be no dramas since we can watch them at our leisure. Looks like it took CCP 3 - 4 days to upload the videos from the last tournament to Youtube, so we could gather one night later in the week after the finals and watch matches until we all want to go home and sleep or we could wait until the following weekend, start at midday or something and power through the entire 6 or 7 hours of VODs from the final day.

Whatever we settle on doing I'm down with this idea.

I personally am game for either option, but its likely it'll end up being a youtube situation. Works for me.

Hey,
Yeh that sounds rad. I've never been to one of these before. I'm ok with staying up ridiculously late though. Might bring a few friends who haven't registered but are definitely Adelaide players (thus them being with me). Sounds fun. Weekend would suit better probably.

Weekends are when its on, so that works for me. I'd prefer this weekend, if possible, although sadly I can't volunteer my house (since its not actually my house, I'm kinda house-sitting right now).

If I put a tentative date for the evening of the 4th?

UPDATE: Nevermind - somehow I got it in my head that we'd be watching VODs but of course there won't be any uploaded until a few days after that weekend's matches. (At least, that's how long it's taken CCP in the past).

Since I live about as far as I possibly can from my local exchange and my connection speed sucks I'll have to withdraw my offer to host. If we were to try watching live at my place I can almost guarantee persistent and annoying-as-**** lag on the stream.

I'm keen if Larkness is keen. Otherwise i'd be an awkward, nervous wreck around all these intimidating, seasoned capsualeers. And it don't do awkward that well.

If that's the case, you got a +1 here. I'll pack my energy drinks for an all night session of pvp madness. Sleep is for the weak.Cool

Well, that being the case I'd like to suggest we push it back a further week. I know that weekend is convenient, what with it being a long weekend and all, but I have a swag of assignments due on that weekend anyway, and if the youtube vids won't be up and we cant stream it, we'll have to move.

Looks like we might end up with significantly more then 6 people, so I am going to see if I can negotiate a room with a projector and sound system at the university.

This will likely take place on mawson lakes campus, I recommend people bring their own beanbags or similar, cuz the chairs may not be up to much, depending on what I can get, if I can even get something.

Also, one of the things I'm definitely going to have to promise is no alcohol on campus, but theres a decent pub right next to it, so we can definitely take a few intermissions, as long as noone gets plastered. There's a dominos nearby though, so should be all good.

Rgr. Well I'm watching the thread with interest. I don't have much else to contribute to this meet other than my presence so I'll just wait and see what develops.

Ok, so heres the go. If we are using uni facilities, there will be a charge attached.

Its $31 per hour, until you book 4 hours or more, at which point it becomes a flat fee of $102 for as long as you like, apparently.

I'm going to suggest we get some firm numbers, and then see if it comes to a reasonable amount per person. If we can get 10-12 people, which we might be able to now, its going to be about $9 a person, which isn't bad.

I will need numbers and upfront payments before I commit though, so its time to X up for meet chaps!

Won't be able to make it, sorry. Finish work late, and then have to back it up with an early. Just the drive itself out to Malaria Lakes will take over 2 hours return for me. :(

For the moment we only have three confirmed people (don't actually have a confirmation from bam, but four including him). If we don't get more then 6 people by the 14th, which is the latest we can practically book it, we will have to call it there and fall back to someones house.

Put me down as confirmed.

I'm going to be a busy nerd that day it seems - apparently there's a Starcraft 2 LAN comp at Arena Internet Cafe on Rundle Street from 11am I'm going to try to check out, then the GSL finals are on from about 4pm which I'm going to try to watch as much of as possible before arriving at Mawson Lakes for alliance tourney goodness.

If I wasn't the biggest nerd I knew I'd know some people to invite. Just means we can stretch out!

Would be good if you could post a map or something of the campus with the room marked? I've never been to the Mawson Lakes campus before so for all I know that's a stupid thing to ask for, but you never know.

Dude, I've been playing on and off since 2004 (mostly off) and I STILL have no idea what the hell I'm doing.

Here is a map of the campus.

http://www.unisa.edu.au/about/campuses/mlmap.asp


We will be in the bright red building in the bottom left labeled 'MC'. I'll be heading there around 5 or so, and I'm about to eve-mail my phone number to everyone who RSVP'd.

Due to construction of a new building, the parking bay mid-way up the left side labeled ML-6 is unavailable, and last time I saw it, roadworks were blocking the entrance to parking bay ML-15 at the bottom left.

There is, however, parking all the way up the street that touches the right-hand wall of the mawson lakes hotel (hotel is above the MC building). I recommend you drive al the way up the mawson lakes boulevard, turn right on university parade between MC and the pub, turn left into the street that leads to ml-6 and park on the street.
