We hear you. Unfortunately, the price for the venue has increased since LAN Downunder 2022. Hosting a 2 day tournament in the current economic climate is difficult. We don't make a profit off of these events, but we can't continue to organise LANs if we're running at a loss, which is why we had to raise the ticket price.
