Let’s go to the LAN

Saturday, 03.07.2021 16:16 by admin

Us gamers have been able to handle a virus ever since Plague Inc. Now we are going to put our epic gamer moves to good use and make sure the ‘rona won’t ruin our fun. We welcome you to SwitzerLAN 2021, 30th September until 3rd October.


You know we love organising LAN parties and spending the weekend with you guys. So get ready to defuse bombs, play some sick guitar riffs, hit epic saves, have a Schüttler at the bar, and be woken up by someone yelling “SwitzerLAAAAAAAAAAAAN” at 4 o’clock in the morning. We are truly glad to be able to plan SwitzerLAN again this year. Because we feel like all of us need a little relaxation right about now.

TL;DR

  • 1200 participants
  • BERNEXPO, Bern
  • 30th September – 3rd October 2021
  • Safety measures according to the Swiss Covid laws
  • HeroFest next door again
  • Ticket price: CHF 150.- (incl. CHF 69.- HeroFest 3 day ticket)


We are incredibly grateful to be able to host one of the very few LAN parties since the beginning of 2020. We would like to take this opportunity and bring all of you back together, give fresh communities a platform, and smell that crispy LAN air once again.

Participants and ticket price

We welcome 1200 participants this year. This is twice the number of seats we had over both weekends last year. In 2021 we’re going back to one weekend to run through all tournaments. The ticket price stays the same: CHF 150.- for a standard BYOC ticket and CHF 350.- for a VIP ticket for the whole LAN party.


Tournaments

As we are still in the early phases of planning, tournaments are not set yet. Most likely, main tournaments are going to be CS:GO, LoL, Rocket League, and – for the first time ever – Osu!. There will definitely be side tournaments for games such as PUBG and Valorant. If you have additional wishes for side tournaments and/or would like to be an admin, hit up Rune on our Discord Server.


Seating plan

The situation as well as regulations can change on a weekly basis. This is why we cannot release a definite seating plan yet. Depending on the current rules at the time of the LAN party we have to plan for more or less space used. This can mean that possibly everyone gets their own table but it could also be that you will share your table with a mate as in the years before. We will release the seating plan some weeks before the event and will notify you on all our channels, of course. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram to stay up to date.


HeroFest is back in full swing!


Being that the epidemic situation has improved significantly, Switzerland’s greatest esports, gaming, and cosplay convention can take place again in 2021! With your SwitzerLAN ticket you have unlimited access to all areas of HeroFest. Enjoy cosplay performances, Japanese sweets, King of the Hill challenges, and new publications.


COVID-19

Right now, it is impossible to tell what safety and hygiene measures will be in effect at the time of the event itself. With the situation changing on a weekly basis, we will have to wait and plan accordingly. We are in close contact with the Cantonal authorities and will make sure that all requirements set by the BAG are followed. BERNEXPO is a highly competent organization, having hosted the National Council last year as well as a vaccination center. The safety of our participants is our highest priority.

We are working out all details of SwitzerLAN 2021 and promise to keep you guys in the loop on any changes. If you have questions, head over to our Discord Server and use the appropriate channels there. Thank you guys so much for your continued support and we will see you in September!


Sincerely, your SwitzerLAN team
