Did you just get a phone call from Khoo? Introduce yourself here, so that we may decide who to root for!

    Well, either I'm an Omeganaut or someone has played a really well timed prank on me.
    I really hope it's the former.

    I've been stuck at work with the stupidest grin on my face since the call.
    I expect this mixture of stress & excitement will continue for the next two months.

    He forgot to call me for the 3rd year in a row.

    I have the strongest desire to practice, BUT I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO PRACTICE! lol

    I got my call earlier today.

    I'm super excited too!

    I too have the biggest urge to practise but I have no idea what for!

    Anyone know if they'll post the events (minus the secret final round of course) like they do for the other Pax's?

    I'd say it will be posted with the schedule, so at least a month yet.

    I got a call. Wasn't prepared for it either. My internal monologue was "Huh, why's some American dude calling me... HOLY SHIT IT'S KHOO."

    Got the call today while at work so had to stay calm, even though I was more than a bit excited on the inside!

    Anyone else paranoid that the LEAST FAVORITE GAME question is going to help build the list of games we'll be playing :P

    Seriously, though, I'm super excited, this is going to be so much fun. Good Luck, all!

    Yeah, I'm completely stumped on the accomplishment question as well.
    I can barely remember the game of Rocket League 20 mins ago, let alone the past decades of gaming.

    WAIT. Now that the hype and excitement of being picked has dropped by 2%, one thought comes to mind. With requirements to having be at omegathon events, how will queuing for panels & shizzles work D:

    Also my best gaming accomplishment is pretty easy. Not feeding more than 10 kills in dota.

    Well la de da Mr. Less than 10 deaths! :P

    I missed the email.
    Can we have more than 3 days to fill this in next year so I have a chance of finding it before the form closes?

    @zerzhul as far as I know, at this point, US OMG's only get priority for omegathon rounds (regardless of if they were eliminated), anything else is left to theater mgmt's discretion.

    new OMGs: check your inboxen for an unofficial but awesome thing.

    Omeganauts indeed only get early access to the Omegathon events, otherwise it is the same as an attendee pass. Its been that way back as far as 2011 based on the old badge access sheets I can find. It did used to give early access to all panels, but that policy changed a while ago. Anyway, congrats all, whether you win or lose, you should be in for a great experience.

    Ahh, ok, good to know! That sometimes is ambiguous!

    Yesssss. I also don't know what to practice. I'm just restarting destiny so I get some console fps experience again haha

    Games get announced a month before PAX right?

    I was half asleep when the phone rang, and my mum nearly told them they had the wrong number. Anyway, I'm pretty excited! :biggrin:

    Did they ask for you by gamertag? or does your mum not know your name? =P

    Side note: I still feel like this isn't really happening, it's still kind of surreal. Except that I randomly got super excited out of nowhere last night and couldn't get to sleep. It might be a long few months...

    I keep forgetting about it after a little while, then getting the giggles when I remember I got picked.

    Its like everyday is Christmas!

    Same. I feel like telling everybody I meet, then realising that not a single one of them will understand what "FAX" is let alone the Omegathon.

    My girlfriend is excited, but that's because she's excited that I'm excited. PAX is just that nerd thing I go to every year without her.

    My friends are excited that they get some priority entry and that they can (likely) see me embarrass myself in front of people.

    I decided to attend PAX solo this year because the friend I came with last year had a very different PAX-style to me. Regretting that now.

  • SpiceSpice Content Sponge Registered User regular
    I'm the exact opposite this year. I got organised, booked a hotel in the city and managed to convince 9 other friends to make the trip. I'm sure they can cheer for you too Kram, just not as much as me. :P
