1. What is Battle Royale?
Battle Royale is a LAN party involving various video game
tournaments. Battle Royale will run for a full 24-hours. The goal of the LAN party is to bring
together engineering and computer science students across the Ottawa Region to share their
passion for gaming in a relaxed environment. Battle Royale has become an annual tradition for
all university and college students in Ottawa studying not just engineering and computer
science, but other disciplines as well. Battle Royale offers a unique opportunity to companies to
expose themselves to over a hundred engineering and computer science students from the
University of Ottawa, Carleton University, and Algonquin College. The event has been a huge
success over the past seven years.
2. Who can participate in Battle Royale?
Anyone interested in playing games or competing in tournaments can participate. The event is
open to everyone regardless of whether they are a student.
Participants under the age of 18 will require permission from a parent or guardian to participate.

6. Can I sign the waiver beforehand?
We ask that all participants sign a waiver at the registration table before entering. To save time,
you can print and sign the waiver beforehand and just give it to us at the registration table upon
arrival. You can download the waiver Here
7. What is the difference between a major and minor tournament?
- The prizes will be notably larger for major tournaments than for minor tournaments.
- It costs more to participate in major tournaments.
- When (not if) scheduling conflicts arise, you will be expected to forfeit or postpone your minor tournament's matches in favour of your major tournament commitment.
8. What is your refund policy?
All sales are final. We do not offer refunds for tickets but tickets are transferable. This means that you can give your ticket to someone else. The only exception to this is if a tournament you signed up for has too little attendance is cancelled. Avoid this by invite your friends.
9. How can I volunteer to help?
We need lots of volunteers during the event. If you're interested in helping with pre-event setup, running tournaments, or post-event teardown, shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
