I know I do!

First Flight is now boarding. Please put your agendas and ice in there upright positions and turn off all pads, and hardware, as we prepare for takeoff.

Not going, but a few friends are trying to get tickets... and apparently, it is already sold out?!

Thursday may or may not be sold out but Friday is first-come-first-serve.

Yup. The Thursday flight is full. But remember, additional spots were added last year when the initial allotment sold out. So there may still be hope for those who didn't get in.

Didn't manage to get a ticket for Thursday. I hope that the Friday one won't fill out all in a sudden as soon as the doors open...

Kind of crazy that tickets are selling out before the regionals even finish.

See this text? It's a gratuitous waste of GeekGold.

The game itself isn't important. Spending time intellectually jousting with likeminded folks is the real reason to game.

I got into a draft. Didn't really want to do the 9 hour constructed megatournament. I wish they would do 8 or 16 man Swiss pods with winner advancing.

Got a Thursday ticket. 9 hours will be a lot of Netrunner, but it should be fun. Did a lot of people drop halfway through last year? I seem to remember hearing that by the end of the first day only 50% of the people that started the day were still even there.

It makes sense since it's just top 32 advancing to saturday if you lose 2 rounds in a row you go on tilt, and start thinking about fun things you can be doing instead of losing for the next 7 hours.

Yeah, there were a lot of people gone at the end of the day.

I'm just about as angry as can be that Thursday sold out so quickly. Last year the event sold out several times because random people were allowed to buy multiple tickets. The event was short of the capacity allowed because the extra tickets weren't used.

I guess what ticks me off about this is that there may have been people who were interested who don't go because others are allowed to buy multiples. I'm sure this is the same for this year.

Im not sure how I feel about it, on one hand, everyone in the world who wants to play can't fit into one room, so how do you do it fairly other than first come first serve?

On the other hand, I've never been to gencon, and now I have this gencon ticket I was forced to buy to just have a chance to go to the event I want to go to? I feel like Homer Simpson at itchy and scratchy land who just converted all of his money into itchy and scratchy fun money only to discover that none of the rides accept it.

I think you can get refunds until June 29th.

I'm in on the first flight again this year. I look forward to getting games in, even though I have even lower expectations than my modest ones last year. I just haven't gotten a ton of time to play during Spin Cycle.

Oh well, summer's here. I should be able to start testing some decks with two and a half months to go.

Anyone knows how do these "first come, first served" events work on Friday? Do you need to register on-site before, or you get in a line on Friday morning? This is going to be my first Gen Con so I'm not too sure on how things work there.

I'm guessing there's going to be a line. A big line.

Yeah... Spending a few hours standing up waiting in a heavily packed room, followed by many hours of Netrunner is going to be a taxing day!
