Thursday Night & Saturday All-Day Meetups
ALL SKILL LEVELS ARE WELCOME.
We’re the only group of gamers in San Diego offering weekly city-wide meetups & occasionally mini-ournaments for the FPS community. You’ll have a blast playing LAN together with us on our 128 tick, zero lag server. The more participants we have, the more fun it becomes! Join our facebook group and get a FREE hour when you come in!
To play in 3v3 or 5v5 competitions, please familiarize yourself with the rules and then bring friends to form your own team or come in alone and we’ll help find you a team. It’s an exciting and unique way to hone your skills, match wits with others and proactively help to grow the scene. Whether you’re a beginner or a pro, we warmly invite you to join us for some good times!
Play With One Of the Best
San Diego’s own Jordan ‘n0thing’ Gilbert is a professional eSports player and a legend in the Counter-Strike community. When he’s not travelling the globe for Cloud9 competing in tournaments with the largest prize pools in history, he has been known to spontaneously appear at GameSync, join in with whoever is playing and casually talk about the gaming scene.
Come by our LAN center on Friday nights. You never know if you’ll have a unique opportunity to team up with one of the greatest of all time!

FREE To Use: Gunnars
Gunnar Optiks are patented, high quality computer eyewear. They provide an optically precise, enlarged image yielding improved clarity and focus.
Make sure you ask for a pair when you check in. They’re available for free while you play.
You’ll be playing on a dedicated business class WAN Internet connection for the fastest ping response. Our room is wired with low-latency network cable and fully validated termination. Our firewalls and switches are managed, corporate-level appliances that we optimize for gaming.
Private On-Premise 128 Tick Server
Every member of our LAN center has FREE access to our configurable server. Unlike CS:GO competitive servers which are 64 tick, we refresh 128 times per second for more accurate kills. While we host every version available, the most popular choice is Global Offensive, as it features updated versions of the classic CS content ( such as de_dust) and new maps, characters, and weapons.
More about our server
Our competitive server allows for a 10 man scrim whereby everyone joins and people pick team captains who then make their 5 man teams (compared to normal servers that only allow for random 5 man vs. 5 man squads). We have the exact same setup as the pro players in LAN so our server can either be used for a competitive match (with 11 slots including a caster) or you can download fun maps and play whatever you want: scoutzknivez, surf maps, mini games, death runs, etc.
One of our Friday night favorites: start with a low tier gun, kill with it then upgrade the gun. The first person to go through all the guns wins.
With our LAN you decide what you want to do and modify what you want, when you want. Change the sv_gravity of the server to start flying and air acceleration to fly faster. Change game types, issue server commands for knife only, sniper only, shotgun only, etc. or download themed maps for everything from mario to alcatraz. There are an endless amount of things you can do.

“I went to this two weeks ago and (although I had my ass repeatedly handed to me) I had a blast. There are some great players there and the computer set up is great. They played super late too, I think I ended up leaving at 2am and people were still playing. Definitely recommend.”psahmn (reddit.com)
” Went for my second CS session last week and it was great. Players of all range of skill show up. Also, everyone that works there is super cool”byscuit (reddit.com)
