My Writings. My Thoughts.

Welcome

Battle Royale V is a LAN party involving various computer games and gaming console tournaments. The competition last for a full 25-hours. The goal of Battle Royale is to bring together future engineers and computer scientists across the Ottawa Region to share their gaming passion in a relaxed environment. Hosted on the lovely campus of Carleton University, this event has become an annual tradition for the university 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 both the University of Ottawa and Carleton University. It had been a huge success over the past years. Battle Royale V is going to be the best yet with an increased capacity and tournament quantity! We are also donating all profit made to the charity Child's Play.

Thank you sponsors, your support has been a vital element in this year’s success! Last, but certainly not least, thank you to the organizing committee, you guys are amazing!

This year we tried a bunch of new things at Battle Royale V and we would love to hear your opinion on how you liked it and what you think we could improve on next. Expect a survey coming in a few days and we welcome comments in the forums!

We are currently in the process of determining the amount we’ll be donating to Child’s Play and I’ll post about it in the near future!

We’ve been getting a lot of questions, so I’d like to say that, yes, we have sold out of the PC/Console type of tickets and, no, we don’t have any hidden spares. :P

We are still selling the Console-only type of tickets, and some of those tickets will be available for purchase on Saturday at the door, depending on the quantities remaining.
