Computers to people ratio-
Your registration gets you one seat and one network connection at the LAN. Additional networked devices are not allowed.

Property/Equipment Liability –
Be respectful of your fellow LAN goers equipment, MWL’s equipment, and the venue’s property. 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.

A refund with a 5 percent handling fee (plus any potential PayPal fees) will be granted up to 31 days prior to the event. Refunds may be granted for cancellations within 30 days of the event at the organizers' discretion. Within 48 hours of the event there will no refunds granted.

There are also no refunds issued for any lost time during the event due to network or power disruptions.

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. No one likes getting Lagged out at a LAN, and if it happens because a of an evil act by someone else, that’s unacceptable. If it’s by accident, or a mistake, we understand it happens and will help you resolve the problem (if needed).

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. We do ask that during tournament times that you refrain from doing transfers that may affect game play (hitting the game servers, competitor’s machines, or crossing inter switch links.) If there’s an issue found to be caused by file transfer traffic you will be asked to stop until the tournament is over.

Pornography –
Don’t have it/distribute it/watch it at the LAN. Simple as that.

You are allowed to sleep in your chair. There is no sleeping on the floor, in the hallways, entrance area, etc at the venue.

1 Prize Per Person!-
To help spread the raffle love if you win one of the door prizes you cannot win any of the others at that event. This does not include tournament prizes nor does this count against any “big prizes” (which will be identified at each event).

Speakers and other peripherals
– NO SPEAKERS. Use headphones, or have no sound. Speakers will not be allowed at the LAN. 40 people with speakers in competition would give everyone a headache after not too long.
