Adversity Gaming is excited to announce the debut of its first Auckland LAN event!
Over the weekend of July 7-8, North Harbour Stadium on Auckland's North Shore will play host to
New Zealand’s best Xbox gamers, as they compete for the top spot in their respective games.

Boasting a massive 18-team turnout at this year's Wellington LAN event, Halo: Reach will be back on the lineup for 2012, along with a 4v4 competition for Modern Warfare 3. We are also very happy to announce that with the help of Standing Fierce, this event will incorporate the fighting game national championships!
Featuring Super Street Fighter IV: AE 2012, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Street Fighter x Tekken and Street Fighter 2 Hyper Fighting! And due to popular demand, we are also announcing Trials Evolution as our first community tournament!

Where is it?
For this event, we have booked out the whole top floor of the North Harbour Stadium:

Level 3 Lounge
North Harbour Stadium
Oteha Valley Road





North Shore City
Auckland


What do I need to bring?
Auckland LAN is completely BYO, so you’ll need to bring whatever you use to game at home.
This usually includes:

  • A monitor/TV (under 24” is ideal, but if you’re planning on bringing a larger screen, please drop us a line HERE so we can work out spacing)
  • Xbox 360 + cables
  • Controller(s)
  • Guitar/Fightstick etc for games that require alternative controllers
  • Game disk(s)
  • Headset (We disallow the use of speakers to avoid distracting other gamers. For fighting games, speakers are allowed on a volume that doesn’t interrupt other games)
  • Ethernet cord (5-10m length is preferable, to ensure that you can reach the connection at the event)
  • Any extra items that you use to game with at home (e.g. mixamp)
  • Cash for food, snacks and energy drinks!



What competitions are there?

Tournament
• Halo:Reach
• Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3


Fighting
• Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition 2012
• Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3

• Street Fighter x Tekken

• King of Fighters XIII


Community

• Trials Evolution


How much does it cost?

We aim to suit as many different gamers as possible, so have a range of options for participating at Auckland LAN 2012.


Tournament Pass
If you're serious about our FPS titles, this is the pass for you. Tournament passes give access to the following:

  • Entry into the event
  • Entry to a maximum of 2 tournament competitions*
  • Entry into fighting competitions (time permitting)*
  • Entry into social competitions (time permitting)
  • Choice of seating in tournament game area


- Earlybird Tournament Pass (payment before May 16th): $60
- Additional tournament entry: $10 per tournament

- Standard Tournament Pass: $70
- Additional tournament entry: $10 per tournament
Tournament pass holders must be registered and paid by June 20th

*additional tournaments cost $10 per tournament entered. This goes directly into the prize pool for that game.

Fighting Pass:
To those more partial to Jin and Ryu than Noble 6 and Soap MacTavish, the fighting pass is for you. With special thanks to Standing Fierce, we're happy to be able to better cater for fighting gamers.
Fighting passes give access to the following:

  • Entry into the event
  • Entry into multiple fighting competitions
  • Entry into social competitions (time permitting)
  • Choice of seating in fighting game area


- Fighting Pass (base price): $30
- Per Tournament Entry: $10

Fighting pass holders must be registered and paid by June 20th


Social Pass:
This is aimed at gamers who wish to be part of the LAN atmosphere, join in on casual games or social tournaments, but don’t want to enter into any competitive tournaments.
These passes will also be available at the door on Saturday 7th July up until midday (space permitting)
Social passes give access to the following:

  • Entry into the event
  • Entry into multiple social competitions
  • Choice of seating in social area*


- Social Pass (paid prior to event): $30
- Social Pass (paid at to event): $40
For seating choices, social pass holders must be registered and paid by June 20th


Community Tournaments:

If we get enough demand for a particular game, we will create a Community competition for that game. These competitions can be entered using any kind of pass - so if you're only entered in community tournaments, you can still get in using a Social pass!

While we do recommend you register before the event, we will keep registrations for community tournaments open until noon on the Saturday of the event. Note - your entry will have to be in cash if you take this route.


- Community Tournaments: $10 (can be entered at the event before midday Saturday 7th July)



What is the event schedule?

The specific tournament and stage timetables are yet to be confirmed, however the venue will be open between the following times for tournament play:

Saturday 7th July: 9am-11pm
Sunday 8th July: 9am-9pm

Where can I stay?

The venue will be open overnight, and you are welcome to stay there free of charge.


For off-site accomodation, there are two main hotels nearby.
