The Crossfire Devotii Challenge 3 will take place at the state of the art WZZRD gaming centre in Enschede, Holland. Widely considered to be the home of gaming in the Benelux, WZZRD offer brand new gaming machines in a relaxed environment with a bar located in the middle of the café. The venue offers onsite match viewing with widescreen televisions and projectors, combined with in house commentary provided by quadV. High profile matches will be screened in the cinestar cinema located on the floor above for the ultimate gaming experience.
The most convenient and cost effective option to get to Enschede for international travellers is to fly into Amsterdam Schipol Airport and take the intercity train from the airport, direct to Enschede. This journey takes approximately 2 hours (although it has been known to take 3 on a bad day). The airport is connected to the main national train service, and you can find alternative routes via train here. You want to travel to Enschede D not Enschede (Enschede D is the first stop, Enschede is after). Alternatively you can travel to Bremen airport in Germany and then travel to Holland.
WZZRD have partnered with the University of Twente to ensure that once again we are able to rent out university accommodation for CDC Part 1 & 2 - This accommodation is both very cheap but very social as all the gamers are centrally located together and most people stay up chatting, drinking and playing poker. We have centralised the booking so that you can book either a log cabin or a hotel room (the logica hotel, also on university campus) through WZZRD. This means that we can keep the low rate and make sure only players & specs can stay there, the two options available are:
Budget: €16 Per Person, Per Night - Log Cabin
The huts hold 15 people. The beds are without bedlinnen so a sleepingbag might come handy, aswell as a towel for the showers. The price also includes a breakfast of 2 Sanwiches, Orange Juice and a Candybar served at WZZRD from 9 until 12.
Comfort: €29 Per Person, Per Night - Logica University Hotel
Logica has 24 rooms, all of which can be used either as single or double rooms. Most rooms have a shower and a toilet. The rooms are divided over four apartments. Each apartment has a common lounge room, provided with telephone, TV, coffee and tea facilities and a minibar. The price also includes a breakfast of 2 Sanwiches, Orange Juice and a Candybar served at WZZRD from 9 until 12.
