  1. Name: Daniel (nickname Danny) Hometown: New York City, NY This will be my 24th consecutive Otakon (been going since the very beginning).
  2. Hi all! I forgot to mention earlier that NYCC has started a "Pre-sale" of their badges yesterday. Only those who did the "fan-verification" of last year were eligible to purchase them. We received our email letting us know when it would start and also gave us a unique link to click on once the sale starts (at 11AM yesterday). Of course we had to deal with their "virtual cue" system and wait until our turn comes up (I had to wait 50 minutes when my turn came). I manage to purchase 4 tickets (1 for each day). I thought I was lucky that I manage to get them, given how long I had to wait and also, they said they would only have a limited number of badges for this sale. It all cost me $195 + taxes and fees. Still cheaper comparing to the other cons that I attend out of state since I don't have to spend the added travel and hotel expense to attend this one. But still, it's better be worth it.
  3. It just goes to show you that it's not so easy to put up a con. Especially when there's so many around now.
  4. Well, over 70 views and yet no opinions. Anyway, they just updated their web page and now it shows how much the badges cost for each individual day. Like I said before, it's expensive. Last year if I remember correctly, a 4-day badge cost around $115. Now, if I want to attend all 4 days, it's going to cost me $195 this time around. At least it will still be cheaper in the long run for me compared to the out of state cons I attend.
  5. Hi everyone! The organisers of NYCC has announced this past Friday that they will not sell any 3 or 4 day badges this year. As quoted: "We're going to be real with you, this is a very bittersweet announcement – we are eliminating three-day and four-day tickets. We will only be selling single-day Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Sunday Kids tickets to NYCC 2017," the convention's website said. "You may or may not know that the Javits Center is going to be under construction. This means we'll be working with some space limitations and we want to make sure as many people have the opportunity to buy a ticket and come to the show as possible. Selling only single-day tickets will give more fans the chance to buy a ticket for at least a day to experience the fun of NYCC." Personally, I find that this news is very disappointing to put it mildly. Everything else what they said like having the badges go on initially on sale over the weekend instead of a weekday like before was great news (for most of us who do work during the week), and I am ok about the "Fan Verification" thing. But now not having an option to buy a multi-day pass? That really stinks! Of course people will say that we could still buy one individual badges for each day, but do you know how much that's going to cost? Anyway, any opinions out there?
  6. I will probably take Amtrak instead of driving to Washington DC for this year's Otakon.
  7. That was quick. I might attend the New Jersey one.
