    Bethesda is always in the same spot every year by the escalators. Twitch has also in the past, to not so great results.

    Putting Blizzard there, though....

    Wasn't Twitch also next to Bethesda last year, creating some pretty big groups of people at the bottom of the escalator?

  • TeholdTehold Registered User new member
    It doesn't look like Blizzard is bringing as much as they have in the past. Their booth looks like it's smaller, and I don't see a panel for them. I'd imagine the biggest thing they will have to show is new hearthstone set if they even show that? Either way I'm pumped for Bioware and Mass Effect!

    Riot has ruined my floor experience in the past, but it seems as though PA has learned. I dont like that E-Sports took so much away from the board game area last year, but it made such a huge difference in traffic flow.

    As for Blizzard, thats a pretty quiet corner and seemingly plenty of queue space. I am staying away from that Bethesda corner on Saturday though....yikes!

    Anyone notice that there is no classic arcade this year? Kind of bums me out because I used to hang out there alot.

  • jpegstripesjpegstripes Registered User new member
    This is my first year at PAX, and I'm particularly interested in the Tetris Attack tournament. I only have Friday and Sunday tickets, though... I wasn't expecting the tournament to be on Saturday. :-/

    That merch line made waiting for everything else seem like child's play. And adding DOOM on top of that?

    This year, they have Prey and the Morrowind expansion to ESO. AND the second booth for merch.

    GL folks! :biggrin:

    I'm just glad that they'll be by the SE panel since I'll be in line for the Primal challenge (which I assume they'll be doing again this year) not to mention the fact that Stormblood comes out in June, so I'm sure they'll have something for it. No idea what Blizzard could be doing though. I only really care about WoW, but if they have merch that'll be good enough for me.

    Hoping it's just a mistake on the map and they will have it. They do have it on the legend so maybe they just left it off the map I hope.

    Love Twitch, but I'm not a fan of them getting their own room to themselves. There's a Twitch Lounge on the map if anyone noticed.

  • zealezeale Saint LouisRegistered User regular
    I would rather they have a lounge in a room than the streamer zoo that they typically set up on the expo floor. Look but don't touch the VIPs!

    Riot was offered their own room after 2013, where their booth turned into a rock concert at the entrance to the show floor. They declined, but then accepted two years later. Things have been peaceful ever since.

    I know the primary issue people have expressed with Twitch's presence in the Expo Hall isn't just the congestion, but the noise. Yes, the Hall gets loud obviously. But when you have a microphone on a stage and can already be heard over everyone yet STILL feel the need to shout and scream into the mic, c'mon now.

    You're Twitch. We know who you are. ;)

    I'm sure they've thought this through and have reasons but I'm kind of bummed to see Twitch right by the escalators. Seems like a bottle neck of obnoxious.

    Does anyone know what the band order is for Friday? Thanks!

    It is very likely the order they are named in the schedule: Videri String Quartet, Bit Brigade, and the Protomen!

    They might not be doing anything due to Hasbro starting their own convention. They took the official conventions back from Transformers and G.I. Joe to start their own with them, My Little Pony, a few other brands, and Magic The Gathering.

  • zerzhulzerzhul Registered User, Moderator mod
    Wizards will at least be there for Acquisitions Incorporated

  • OblivionOblivion Registered User new member
    Is riot games not coming to pax this year? I know they've been every year but I don't see there booth or name in the list of exhibitors. I really hope there going!

    I'm still hoping its a mistake being that the Arcade is still in the legend and I would think they would have removed it from there as well.... we will see.

    I know in the past they have reduced their presence as they were talking about doing their own specific LoL convention.

    Keep in mind peeps that the schedule always goes thru changes, sometimes even during the expo.

    Has anybody heard if the Bioware Base will be returning this year? I know they've got a Main Theater panel on Friday at 4, but was wondering if they'd have their own room again.

    im not a huge crowd person... (then why am i going to pax lol)... i love to walk around and take note of the different games... buy a token or 2 and check things out... Now that this is my second pax im pretty smart at what i wanna see... now i know there is a food court which is great last year i didnt realize that.. also there are stuff outside the hall... im looking forward to meandering about till 6 when the hall closes and i head out. Pax will be fun as always and i know there is stuff after the hall closes but after 8 hours or so and 5 hours of driving im ok with seeing what i will see
