Pax West Announcements

Hello Everyone,

Former Pax South attendee here. I was curious when Pax West is typically announced? Thanks friends.

    probably not until after pax east concludes

    Agreed. They don’t want to draw attention away from one event with the promise of another. I’d say it’s likely we’ll hear stuff right after, given that it’s about the same span of time between then and Pax West as it was between East and Pax U plugged.

    So, ah, does that mean that the PAX West paranoia season has begun?

    The PAX twitter account does seem to be eerily silent at the moment...

    Based on 2018 & 2019 (PAX West ticket sales from the Before Times™), we should hear something at the end of May. In 2018, they hit on May 31, and in 2019, they hit on May 30. Last year, I think they were released the first week of June.

    Very surprisingly, pax_questions finally got back to me (after many months of unresponsiveness) and confirmed that PAX West 2021 attendees will be eligible for a discount/presale for West 2022 badges. They also told me that I should have received an email about it (presumably when a bunch of other people did, back in September during the Omegathon) which of course I never did (kept checking spam box, etc..) I have provided my original purchase receipt to them, so hopefully they will be able to sort it out.

    The site hasn't been updated to "soon" yet so I assume we still have a bit of time. Also no word yet on whether Dev will be a thing this year, though dev.paxsite.com is still dead which doesn't seem like a good sign.

    I just noticed that the PAX West image on west.paxsite.com still shows large Xbox and PlayStation booths. If only....

    I'm maybe concerned for this year... this is what's up on True Dungeon's site about this year:

    https://truedungeon.com/pax-west
    "PAX West 2022
    Events presented on September 2 - September 4, 2022

    Due to the expansion construction at the convention site, space is very limited for the convention. We will not be attending PAX West in 2022, but we plan a big expansion in 2023."

    I would love to know the convention's footprint this year. I thought the new addition was separate, but are they also doing something to the old WSCC? Or.. is it just that they're going to fill the convention center to normal standards so there's no place for extras until 2023?

    I did get the e-mail back in September but haven't heard anything since, so I'm guessing it's still in the works.

    Does anyone have word on when our presale will happen for 2021 attendees yet?

    From the email last year:

    "We'll be sharing more details in the coming year but until then, know that we're honored to have fans as dedicated as you"

    Maybe they meant next year as in 2023? lol

    I will add this, I do hope that they still require vaccinations, or negative tests again this year. There are new versions out, and coming, some not as nice as the most recent 'soft' ones, and it would be best policy. Lets hope!

    I still haven't received the email or any more info, though I got a support ticket acknowledgment from pax_questions at least.

    BTW site has been updated and now says "Registration Opens Soon."

    Soon™
