Issue you may find is you have picked a date for the grand final where the group stages are being held in sydney for World Champs. I'll pass it around for people in the scene but i think being the same day as world quals won't give you the best teams at LAN.

Yeah this event is a local event, the qualifiers are at LAN in Adelaide over the two days at ARENA Internet Cafe on the 15th-16th July then the finals is at LAN in Adelaide at AVCON on the 22nd July.
The Overwatch World Cup qualifier in Sydney on the date of AVCON shouldn't be an issue unless teams from interstate want to skip that event and be here in Adelaide over the two week period for the qualifiers and then AVCON. Which is why this event is more of a local event than for interstate teams.

Mains - Zarya, Roadhog and Soldier

Can play - Pharah, Symmetra and Mercy

Would like to join or make a team for this.


What PC/Console and controllers will be in use?

I ask because I play on PS4, but have no worries moving to mouse and keyboard.
