  1. According to the Distant Worlds website, Uematsu will be in attendance. Can Otakon verify this? http://www.ffdistantworlds.com/concert/otakon/
  2. Cheaper Badges for 2018

    Thanks, as always, for the detailed response. It's always nice to hear the reasoning behind decisions made which affect me as a member.
  3. Cheaper Badges for 2018

    How many membership renewals were there last year? How many are projected to be renewals this year? Just trying to get a sense of how much Otakon stands to gain by not extending the renewal discount this year. Is that to help offset a potential decrease in income due to Saturday/Sunday and Sunday now being available at a reduced rate?
  4. Hotels

    Information provided yesterday from MattTheMinion in another thread: "Yeah it's going slower than we hoped, as one of our key hotel contacts went on vacation last week. Most of the room block allocations are for where we put staff and guests and the like, so you guys won't notice much of a difference - although it may open up more rooms in some hotels. When we are ready to announce it we plan to give you some lead time to be ready."

  6. Unofficially, they had around 40,000 attendees, so yes. More than Otakon. Nevermind me, I can't find Awesomecon attendance figures for 2017. But they did have 40,000 ONE of their years, at least.

    I came here to make this very same suggestion! Having them do even a mini (like 2 hr?) Critical Role session live would be amazing!
  8. Overheard at Otakon 2017

    Well? How DO you get stains out of body pillows? Asking for a friend.
