ExileCon Tickets Now on Sale!

FeelsPoorMan
Will there be the ability to upgrade a GA ticket to VIP if more become available? I missed the announcement because I was in game at the time. I am flying in from Canada so I would like to make the most of my trip.

i would have liked to go, but i feel $300 NZ is excessive. i just bought a ticket to Metallica in October and that was only $180


Metallica will make a profit on their concert I'm sure. GGG is going to take a loss of around 1/2 a million to host their event. Check the last Baeclast with Chris talking about this in case you missed it.


So $180 for a concert that will give, oh, 5 hours of entertainment at best (assuming you also like Slipknot), vs $300 for probably close to 20 hours of entertainment. Quantity wise, there's no argument, but quality is subjective.

I suppose it depends on your weighting of quality and intensity of entertainment I just don't see any sort of hefty convincing argument here unless a person is either a serious Tallica fan *or* much prefers a short live experience over a longer, multimedia one with more personal interaction with folks sharing the same specific interest.

Biases: I've seen Metallica four times in the past 20 years, and reckon I've paid far less for better metal gigs many times since. I friggin' can't stand nu metal. And I haven't been to a global PoE meetup and I find this community very fascinating.



Value is subjective, i get that. what im saying is i love GGG, i think they are great....but they aint Metallica. bias aside, they've been killin it for 37 years and are THE biggest metal band on the planet, they could charge $500 per ticket and probably still sell out, but they dont.(unlike certain singers whos names rhyme with maline peeon)

to use another example we have a con every year in Auckland called Armageddon, tickets to that are usually under $80, granted the crowd there is way bigger, but then so is the venue and the celebs that attend for autographs etc. now what i dont know is what the exclusive MTX is, but i dont imagine it will be $200 worth of value.

also going to slayer/Anthrax tonight, $120

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

thanks chris/carl [Removed by Support]


Yeah I saw that price tag, and I live in New Zealand. $300? Yeah fuck that lol. Can afford it but do I want to drop $300 on unknown MTX which is all I really care about to be honest. Yeah nah. I'd prob be more inclined if you announced what the MTX actually was. I'd be pissed if I paid that for a measily helm or footprints.

Awww i was checking all the prices, if I can't get an ultra vip ticket or at least a vip ticket that just ruins the entire 24 hour flight for me :(


I'llm probably still come but I WILL pout about it.

If there is another VIP or Ultra VIP ticket laying around please email me and I will buy it immediately.

Someone earlier in the thread mentioned you can upgrade tickets like supporter packs, and Bex mentioned there will be another wave of VIP sales, so buying a standard ticket now and upgrading when the next wave of VIPs release is a viable option.

if I buy VIP ticket can I kick those devs'/QA folks' asses for free? daym, I'd even add a couple of hundreds for that opportunity
the way you cover your code with QA is ridiculous and weird taking the outcome into consideration
is that so difficult to double-check the client on different VMs/physical machines?
cmon it's 2019 not 2002-2004, we have huge capabilities nowadays
and instead people with high/top-end PCs face huge fps drops just because some lazy stupid arse hasn't tested piece of the code
wake the fk up finally
I wish to go but im goin to Canada with my girlfriend to catch some fish this year, so mayb next time :) cos New Zeland is on my list to go....

did a quick search on your previous posts, i would suggest you try playing poe with overclocking of your 7700k turned off and you will probably find that it solves ALL your problems due to gaining that voltage back to run your graphics card that is being starved due to your motherboard not having enough oomph to run a 7700k and a gtx 1080 at max voltage
(ran a test rig with your components and had the same issues when overclocking, turned it off and problems went away)

The announcement keynote and race finals will be streamed online for everyone to watch for free.

So there will be no stream for the developer talks? I'd really like to see them. Even more than the announcement, in fact.


Yeah me too. For me this convention isn't really about the announcements or the com facade. It'll be about meeting the team behind the team producing the most ground breaking game game of our time design wise.

I bought a ticket. I have no goddamn clue how I'll get there yet but I'm sure I will be. It promises to be the most convivial and fun convention there ever was, and most likely will ever be for a long while.
The small amount of people there and very reduced accessibility will for sure allow for some real meeting and exchange, rather than the usual commercial facade we can see when other companies announce their next mobile revolution.

Get one. I'll see you there.


If you spot me and say the magic word I will buy you a drink for your awesome attitude. :)
