      megalan is pretty lit ! but we don't wana overpromise haha

      there's tonnes of huge LANs and conventions out there like dreamhack and smashcon - they have attendance on the order of the 10,000s

      in comparison, we are a humble 600 (but growing fast !) so one day, idk maybe we'll actually be mega!

    A true ozbargaining uni society would not put up with Humanitix's fees!

    • yeah 24% fee is pretty out there…

      • yeah ur right… we'll have to look into that - that's a ridiculous percent

        • A couple years ago they offered a low booking fee rate for non profit organisations/schools, not sure what it is now but my uni society def took advantage of it, might be worth looking into

          • @phatbirb: thats really useful! thanks for that - we'll definitely chase that up haha

            we keep improving each time, that's how it is ๐Ÿ”ฅ

    Any arcade cabinets going to be present?

    • I'd also like to know

    • unfortunately no :(( sorry - maybe one day when we grow bigger, we can start getting them in
      it's something we'd all love to do

  • What is the $2.38 fee for?

  • +2

    Kinda wish this existed while I was at UNSW.

    Best I ever got during my time was just bumming arournd on all the old arcade cabinets in the Roundhouse before they were eventually got shut down and removed.

    • i feel u ๐Ÿ’

      unsw students of 2022 and after don't realise they live in the most amazing of times right now ๐Ÿฅบ

      unsw gaming societies were never able to reach this level, but we finally found a way to integrate all of them into a collective "UNSW gaming" identity and it's beautiful ๐Ÿฅฒ

      if ur not too busy, you can still come though!! as long as you still have your zID, you get free entry!
