NETWAR is a LAN party organization in Omaha, Nebraska. We are a chapter of the national Intel LANFest organization. Our goal is to organize and host very large LAN (Local Area Network) parties with many gamers at least 2 to 3 times a year. Our entire organization and staff is non-profit for charity. 100% of all attendee admission fees goes straight to charity! Gamers bring their computers and show up to play multiplayer computer games for many hours straight, while having a fun time and meeting other fellow gamers. Anyone who enjoys playing computer games can attend, there is no age or gaming skill restriction. NETWAR caters for both the competitive gamer who likes to play in tournaments as well as the hobbyist gamer who just enjoys playing his favorite video games for fun with a bunch of other gamers while having the chance to win big prizes in our door prize raffles!

  • Lanyard must be worn at all times

  • Absolutely no ghosting (looking at opponents screens), this is cheating, your team will be removed from the tournament.
  • No cheating / hacking.
  • Default skins / textures only.
  • Team captains are responsible for their team (i.e. getting them on the server in time when called to join a server).
  • If your team is unable to be ready within 5 minutes of being called you will forfeit the match.
