PAX West 2017 BYOC Mega Thread

AsmerAsmer San Francisco, CARegistered User regular
edited July 31 in PAX West
Hello all!

PAX is approaching quickly and it's fallen to me to finally relieve Dreggor of his role in running BYOC seating so he can focus on important things like perfecting Lucio wall riding in Overwatch.

I'm Asmer, I've been running BYOC Checkin/Security at West for the last few years, and I imagine most of you folks who are return BYOC attendees have met me in passing at least.

Anyway, BYOC GROUP SEATING!

We're running a week or so behind, but that can't be a shock to anyone and it's not going to phase you super awesome people now will it? The deal is pretty much the same as last year and every PAX before. Check out the details below and get those requests in! Last year we had a packed house and we unfortunately had to split up some (many) groups that did not pre-register (tisk tisk) so I highly advise that if you have a group to send in a request. If you don't my Enforcers and I will do our best, but there are only so many seats!

I also want to point out that we will again have the PC Mod showcase which sits right inside the main BYOC entrance, so if you have an awesome rig that you think will make people crowd around and snap pictures of, send me some pics (OF YOUR RIG) and if we fall in love (or just lust) we will grant you one of these epic spots.

Group Seating Details:
GROUP SEATING OPEN DATE: TODAY!
GROUP SEATING CLOSE DATE: 8/24/2017!

Group Seating Requirements:
  • Your party is considered a group if you have SIX or more people.
  • Groups must pre-register seating assignments prior to PAX, or else seats will be based on first come first serve availability.
  • Requests are taken on a first come, first serve basis.
  • Passes for ALL 4 days of PAX! (recommended to maximize fun, but not a hard requirement)
  • If you have multiple BYOC badges, those count as seats (group members) so if you have 6 BYOC passes in your "group" (regardless the number of physical bodies) you qualify for group seating.

To request group seating, use the seating chart below to choose your seats and email pax_pc at paxsite dot com

PLEASE NOTE: We swapped the numbering this year, so please double check those seat numbers before you just resend last year's request email without looking at the chart!

Please include the following information when requesting:
Group Name
Number of People (include handles too)
Desired Location


Seating Chart:

    The one, the only, Bring Your Own Computer for PAX West 2017!

    Want to be part of a rad PAX Lan Party? This is how you do that! BYOC is a dedicated LAN Party area in the PC section of PAX for you to bring your cool rig or your travel machine or just your gaming laptop and hang out and game with other attendees! The BYOC badge does not grant you entry to PAX itself, you need both BYOC and PAX general admission badges in order to participate!

    Yay! Is info on group seating forthcoming in this thread? Or will it be a new thread?

  • zerzhulzerzhul Registered User, Moderator mod
    Group seating will be managed by the Enforcers running BYOC. I will either merge this thread into whatever thread they start, or just have a new thread entirely. Either way, you can follow this thread to see when that happens, as if I keep them separate I will at least post the link to that thread when it exists.

    Group seating probably won't happen until late July or early August, however.

    This is my family's first time come to Pax. Do we know when the app will be updated?

    Best place to get information is to follow @Official_PAX on Twitter. Someone asked this same question and they said most likely next week, but it could be this week too. So in other words, soon. We typically just watch the site and the app and wait for it to happen.

    Bah, we've lost the seats we've had for the past 3 years. I am annoyed. Should be an early reg for folks who have been going year after year.

    I'm sorry that we took your seats but I don't think playing the seniority card would have helped you in this case.

    Have the BYOC badges been mailed out yet? If not, do we have a guesstimate as to when it might happen?

  • celycely Registered User regular
    I got my BYOCs with my PAX Badgers that I bought during the first sale (not the reclaimed sale). I think I received them in the mail about a week ago?

    My brother bought the passes, and i got the badges. Since he's received the passes already, I didn't know when I'd be getting the badges.

    My BYOC group this year is a group of 4 (previous years has had larger groups). Given that groups are six or more, will there be an opportunity for smaller groups to register for reserved seats? Or will we be stuck on the first come first serve basis to try and snag four seats together?

    I would suggest trying to find other small groups to make up a group of 6+

    This here, we have to cut the groups off at a minimum size limit, unfortunately. In the future this might change, but not for this year.

    idk if this is the appropriate thread to ask the question, but I ordered my BYOC tickets after I received my PAX West passes... The email said that they will ship with my PAX West badges... It's been a couple weeks and I still haven't received shipping information or any indication of it being shipped. Does anyone know if ReedPop will send them out or are they by default sent to WillCall? (at this point).

    In my experience, as I've been in similar situations the past few years, they're picked up at will call. It never hurts to shoot them an email though.

    Yea, shoot an email out to pax_questions@paxsite.com. They should be able to track things down for you.

    It's in "The Annex", Level 3. This year it's called the "Lenovo Legion PC Room".

    Chart updated!

    Also, if you registered a group you should have just got an email from me about preregistration. Please read it.

    If you sent pax_pc an email registering a group, and have *not* received an email from me about preregistration, please send me a PM here.

    Are we going to have a raffle and giveaways this year? I had a great time last year like always. However I know many in my group were saddened that there was no awesome BYOC raffle.

    Are Enforcers required to pick up a BYOC badge?
