If I can get the time off work, I’m hoping to fly over from England for this. I expect LAX is the only airport I’ll be able to get to on an international flight. Is there any chance you could post up a little more information on getting to the venue?


#9

I plan on using a controller for this event, which kind are legal? (is wireless ok?)


#10

You can find travel information here

We don’t recommend wireless controllers or pads.

They are not illegal at SCR but if your controller is caught disrupting a match, you will be DQ’d from the event.


#11

What’s policy on PS3 to Xbox 360 wired controller adapters?


#12

As long as they don’t interrupt other sticks/pads or the console itself then they are fine.

I don’t have an official ban list of convertors from other events.

I’ll see what I can find.


#13

I’m in there
