Fellow Gamers,

We are regretfully letting you know that for the current foreseeable future SMGL will be on hiatus. At present, we have no plans for any future LANs due to some hurdles that we are finding difficult to overcome in the business of LANing & Gaming.

We would like to thank everyone who has made the trek out to the Liverpool Catholic Club and joined in with the fun and games at SMGL events.

We hope that you can continue your passion in gaming and join in with some of the other local lans in Sydney such as SOGC, Battlefield Bargo, Fragfest & SGL. You will no doubt see us at some of these other events so come over and say hi.


A special thanks to Missingo for suppling switches and his gaming servers for us to use at SMGL. Without your help, SMGL would not have ran as smoothly network wise as it did. Thanks to the great supporters of our LAN, those of you who helped us setup the day and thanks again to SOGC for your great help and commitment in making our SMGL vs SOGC Battle of the LANs such a great event.

It is sad to be writing this final post, but hopefully we can come back again in the future.

Thanks Everyone!
SMGL Admins

SMGL vs SOGC - "Battle for King of the LAN's" - 26th June 2010

SMGL vs SOGC - LAN vs LAN - 26th June 2010 - Liverpool Catholic Club

Thanks to all Gamers! Especially SMGL who pulled together to win the event!

SMGL lanners united to battle it out against our new LAN rivals SOGC to be crowned the LAN of LANs and raise the trophy up over our heads! 60 gamers attended the event with a few attending from SGL & Fragfest also!

It was a big day, full of competitions and prizes (despite steam bringing out game updates for CS & TF2). We also brought back the xBox 360 & Nintendo Wii on the projectors for more heated solo comps and a variety of PC comps which all went towards the end tally to determine the winning LAN of the event!

I would also like to give a big thanks to SOGC and their admins who put a lot of time and effort into helping us bring this great day together. Without them, the day would not have been such a success!

I have put together a time lapse video of the day. Enjoy!
