Property/Equipment Liability –

If you damage/destroy any MWL equipment you will be held liable for the replacement/repairs of said equipment. You will also be held responsible for any damage/destruction of venue property/equipment which will be in addition to any additional charges MWL may incur beyond just replacing/repairing damaged/destroyed property.

Attitude –
Be a good sport. Be Considerate of the other players. Be considerate of the people running the event. Everyone’s at the event to have fun, so don’t be a killjoy.

Viruses/Malware –
Check your machine with any virus scan (free or premium) BEFORE bringing it to the LAN. Any machine found to be infected on the network will be disconnected until we can be certain that the machine is clean. There are no refunds for any lost time due to virus/malware infection.

Denial of Service/ General Evilness –
If you are found to be willfully hurting network performance, to any one person or the network as a whole you will be asked to leave the LAN without a refund and banned from all future MWL events.

Cheating –
If you are caught cheating in a tournament you and/or your team will be disqualified and potentially removed from the event without a refund.

Large File transfers –
We do not discourage file copying, we know that’s a big part of any LAN.

If there’s an issue found to be caused by file transfer traffic you will be asked to stop until the tournament is over.
