Not able to bring your full PC rig to MomoCon? No problem! DreamHack and MomoCon have partnered to bring you the all new PC Free Play Area where 100 computers will be fully loaded with games to enjoy at your leisure. Did your friend bring their computer to the MomoCon BYOC LAN area but you didn’t and you really want to get a quick game in with them? Now you can! The MomoCon PC Free Play Area will be open the same hours as the BYOC LAN Hall (approximately 10:00am-3:30am). All you’ll need to do is check-in at the front desk and you’ll be assigned a computer to play on for a set amount of time (based on availability).
MomoCon 2018’s LAN BYOC area is free to register with a MomoCon 2018 badge!
Seating for the BYOC LAN will be first come first serve. You must sign up as an individual. This year the League of Legends registration will be an option you select at the bottom of the registration here. If you do not have a team, we will try our best to create a team for you, but there is no guarantee. Each member of a team must have a MomoCon membership. You are required to purchase a MomoCon 2018 membership here for all participating days. The tournament officially begins on Friday, May 25th, but overnight gear storage will begin on Thursday, May 24th.
The tournament is strictly bring-your-own-computer (BYOC). BYOC means that you must bring all of the equipment you need to compete with including, but not limited to: computer, monitor, mouse, keyboard, headphones, and cables (power, video, etc.). Wireless Internet will not be provided and you are not allowed to bring your own router, switch, or access point, so please prepare accordingly. We will provide 2 AC outlets and 1 Ethernet cable for each seat.
Anyone bringing hardware into the LAN area will be required to report the hardware they’re bringing into the venue. For this reason, we suggest attendees pre-register to avoid the delay of declaring hardware at walk-in registration.
There is limited bandwidth available for the LAN. Therefore, we reserve the right to disconnect or throttle attendees who consume significant bandwidth. Torrenting, filesharing, streaming, and other bandwidth-intensive activity are prohibited on the network. Attendees are also not allowed to tamper with the network or power infrastructure that we provide in any way. This includes, but is not limited to, unplugging/moving network switches or plugging in additional routers, switches, or wireless access points.
There will be a bag check at all entry/exit points at the venue to improve security because of the large number of attendees at MomoCon. Please remember that this is no excuse to leave your gear in a compromising fashion; we take no responsibility for any loss of equipment.
By signing up for BYOC LAN spaces, you agree to the following:
(i) release MomoCon from any liability for loss or damage to persons or property; infringement of any right, or any other claim or cause of action of any kind as a result of participation in the event;
(ii) authorize and permit MomoCon and its designees to use your name, voice, and likeness and all reproductions thereof in all media now or hereafter known for all purposes in perpetuity;
(iii) agree to comply with all posted rules outlined on the MomoCon LAN Party webpage (http://www.momocon.com/lan-party/);
(iv) understand that all attendees must have a valid MomoCon badge in their name for at least one day the convention to participate, and voluntary payment without agreeing to these terms may not warrant a refund.
League of Legends prizing will be for the Top 3 teams.
Overwatch will also have prizing for the Top 3 teams.
