Anyone in Sydney able to house 2 CS:GO fans from Melbourne for IEM Sydney?

This is gonna be a rogue request. But, myself and a mate are driving up to Sydney from Melbourne next weekend for IEM Sydney and have little to no money for accommodation due to a few different unforeseen circumstances. Of course it would take a miracle to have someone volunteer, but if anyone is able to house us from Friday night through to Monday morning, we would be beyond grateful.

Olympic park? Definitely a good offer for OP as a lot of those Airbnb's are booked out or pricey

5 Year Subreddit Veteran49 points·1 month ago

Isn't it almost cheaper just to fly? Bloody fuel is expensive!

Renegades Fan13 points·29 days ago

Depends on the car i guess. A fuel economical car would use around 5-6L/100km with highway driving the distance between perth and sydney ~4000km. So you would require 200-240L of petrol. Average price for e10 is around $1.38/L. So it would cost about $275-330. cheapest flight i could find for a one way trip is $170. So you would need more than 2 or more people for it to be worth it. ofc this doesn't count for food and motels and other expenses.

Cloud9 Fan8 points·29 days ago

You get enough drivers you don't even need a motel.


4000km are 40 hours at 100km/h. Even if you drive at 150km/h (cars get much less efficient at that speed) it'd be still 30 hours. You need breaks for that, even with multiple drivers. I mean you could probably get away with 1 night break and 2 x 20 hours, but one night is seriously minimum.

Ninjas in Pyjamas Fan1 point·29 days ago

Still depends on how many people you have. 5 drivers = around 8 hours per person, you can switch every 4 hours.

I don't rest well in cars/moving things, so it'd be a shitty trip for me if we drove "non-stop" for 40 hours. I'd much rather not go or pay for a plane ticket then.

Ninjas in Pyjamas Fan0 points·29 days ago

I mean, that's cool but it's not about you lol. I actually know people that have easier time falling a sleep in a moving car.

Natus Vincere Fan1 point·29 days ago


thats the spirit

reminds me of the "korean taxi" from the movie taxi (while we're still fresh of marseille)

1 taxi, 1 license, 2 drivers (link in french)

You get a lot of kms per tank if you set cruise control and stay the same speed

Its not almost cheaper. It's incredibly cheaper to fly. Especially given the competitiveness of airfares if you have booked well in advance.

Omg how longs that gonna take!? Im flying over😊

1 day 18 hours, we flew over last time for it. But now we are feeling adventurous

Renegades Fan2 points·29 days ago

It's a pretty great experience doing that drive mate have good one.

Original Poster1 point·29 days ago
