"ExileCon is a Restricted 16 event..."

G...dammmit. My 11yo is going to be PO'd. No joke. He knows more about PoE than I do and I've been playing since he was 4yo. I promised him this and a trip to NZ. Very disappointed in this aspect and I'm not usually one to b*tch and moan.

This game is 18+, legally. I believe it's 16+ on PC as well. I'm glad your 11yo is enjoying it but he's legally not supposed to be playing it. I'm sure that's at your discretion as an adult and a parent (I'd put it along the same lines as deciding when your kid can have a drink with dinner or on special occasions etc) but if the game is legally 16/18+, it's only be expected it's a 16+ event.

Edit: I also found this in the terms of service, which every user agrees to upon commencing usage of this product:

"

13 then, with parental consent. Sorry, your kid is still 2 years under that.

So what exactly are you disappointed in? GGG keeping themselves out of a lot of legal hot water? :P

Killing bots on For Honor and Smite (RIP au server) is more fun and engaging to me than anything or anyone here. Think about that.

Pretty sure it's illegal in NZ to let underage people into a hard rated event (ie. r-16/r-18), even with parental supervision.

A 15 year old can't even go into an r-16 movie with their parents with them, otherwise both the parents and the cinema can face legal action.
You believe that to defeat an enemy who will stop at nothing, you must stop at nothing. How is that different than "blood must have blood"?

I wish I could afford to go, wish there was a digital ticket for us poor people :P


I'm hoping it goes well enough they have another one in a few years for 5.0. This is (hopefully) going to be buy-a-house-year, so dropping around $10k on a vacation would be a really bad idea.
As i've said earlier. 200$ (change money) If i would have to travel like 18000km to the other hemisphere, than even 1000$ for best ticket is not so much as planes, hotels and vaccines. In real life i am an exile and this year i've planned my holidays in autumn which can cost me like few k$ so sorry. I hope a little for live show on twitch etc., avaible to poe players all over the world - for this i can pay, because many of us are interrested to see how it all looks like.

//Anyway i am just interrested how fast 1000$ and 500$ tickets sold out. Will there be guests like twitch poe players?

//Real life exile is someone that plays poe from other country than is been born in (for example Zizaran) and love far away islands for holidays. The last is only my idea for a community showcase etc.
Well, I was going to buy a ticket even though it's looking like I won't be able to go, but only getting the MTX from physically picking up is really lame :/


Please allow a form of digitally picking up tickets. I would love to have a 'stub' and the MTX from year 1 Exilecon even if I can't make it out :(
The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.
300 aus dollars are you guys out of your mind or what ?

i was looking forward this untill i saw the typical GGG pricetag
after the thousands we spent on mtx this is how you show your appreciation

You try setting up the event, venue, logistics of sending employees, marketing, food/beverages for them and guests, hardware, insurance, etc. etc.

Chris even mentioned they would still be at a deficit even with selling out all the tickets. It's a huge gamble for them, and they're hoping the publicity will make up the rest in future sales.
