Even though it was kinda leaked a week ago, the pax 2018 schedule is officially live on the site. http://west.paxsite.com/schedule What are YOU guys most excited for?

For me, it's DMC5 and C Team. Still need time to properly study the whole thing though.

    Why do the League of Legends and Puyo Puyo Tetris tournaments have to overlap?

    Edit: LoL tournament is no longer a thing. :(

    I've never been to a panel! :O but I like the look of that psychology of Zelda one, and I've always wanted to compete in a Smash Bros or MH tourney!

    ...and I see now that Zelda and Smash Brothers overlap, which doesn't seem statistically probable (that I would be interested in 3 panels and 2 of them would overlap)


    I hate math and math hates me

    The core truth of the PAX West schedule is that it is deliberately crafted to put popular things at the same time. Often on opposite sides of the map. This is because too many people go to PAX to safely fit in the WSCC. If nobody left it, the fire marshal would shut PAX down. For example, Acquisitions Incorporated conflicts with Giant Bomb and Late Night Dub Fight.

    If you just want casual Smash, it is always being played in the Console Freeplay area.

    I am shocked! I love the panels at PAX. This year is looking to be very panel heavy for me, and the concert folks are still TBD no?

    I'm having the same conundrum of conflicting panels, as SEGA has one on localization that overlaps an Anthem one.

    I am slightly irked by the Acquisitions Inc. and Giant Bomb overlap on sunday. Luckily, both are likely be available in some sort of VOD.

    I know! I've been going since 09 and never sat in on a panel. I did watch a panel for PAX South on Twitch, though, so that... half counts?



    OK so clearly the answer is somebody needs to figure out cloning real quick so we can all have 3 copies of ourselves and one clone can go to a panel, the second can go to a concert, and the third can get the sleep the other two won't get until the weekend is over

    Saddened that there is no Gearbox panel this year for the first time since I started going in 2012. Always entertaining and that pretty much means no BL3 info until at least 2019.

    I usually say the concerts, but thems a big question mark right now. (I wish the Brothers Chaps would bring their convention style out west for Trogdor, but that's not in the cards... They're ATL; it's a lot to ask.)

    Am I wrong, or is Bethesda missing this year?

    Is the map on the site correct? I couldn't tell if it was updated or last years'. The app isn't reflecting one last I checked.

    EDIT: It appears that it is indeed updated as it is showing the correct dates for this year's show. I don't see Bethesda and it looks like PAX heard my cries into the aether of having Roosterteeth out of the Expo Hall and in their own dedicated room space on the 4th floor :)

    The maps outside the WSCC are not out yet, so Bethesda could be doing something elsewhere. Like renting out the Paramount like Wizards Of The Coast did in 2016, and Bungie did in 2017 (although hopefully without wrapping up a day early). The Annex is possible too.

    So far, the panels that interest me for this year are:
    -Game Jobs You Never Even Knew Existed
    -Friday Night Concerts
    -Saturday Night Concerts
    -Challenge Issued! Getting into the Game Industry, Part 1
    -Side Hustle: How to Make Games After Work Hours

    Can anyone guess why I'm going this year?

    Late Night Dub Fight is a favorite of mine and I'm willing to tolerate the huge line.
    Live Oil Painting - Guild Wars 2 seems pretty neat, and I like to start my days easy.
    I don't see much else compelling me right now, but the current schedule isn't internally searchable. Once Guidebook gets it live, I'll be able to see which panels feature folks I like. That tends to give me a few more things I want to attend.

    They should be updated on the Main page when it happens. It's usually not crazy exciting. Most of it is telling people there is stuff outside the WSCC and where those places are. I know when I first went, I never went to the Hyatt. Or the 6th floor of the WSCC.

They're usually very nice (she likes Jacksepticeye and Markiplier although Mark didn't seem to like it when I was flipping him shit last year - not seriously, just a little teasing).

    You probably already know this, but the lines to get into the Jack & Mark signings fill up instantly. I want to say they were out of armbands at 8AM for a 3PM signing. Or something similar. They are easily the most brutal lines at PAX.

    That's fair, though with the announcement of Fallout 76 already I can't imagine them having a huge separate space, but I would be happy if they did. Still, I'm interested to see what Valve is using that space for this year...

    Armbands??

    Last year there were no armbands. But we did line up like 4-6 hours beforehand. SO. MUCH. FUN. (not really) Literally the only nice thing I have to say about the lines is that they're like any line at PAX: the people are nice. My daughter has actually made friends and they're planning on meeting up this year.

    Armbands were done at this past East because of the...difficulties...in regards to having the autograph area be the same as the Expo queue area + people needing to line up outside just to get into the building in the first place + the really cold temperatures.

    I think one of the west ones did a wrist band last year too.... one of them had an 8 hour line, and then instead the next day, they announced at like 8 AM that they were going to do wristbands starting at 9 or something, and a LOT of people got grumpy on twitter because they weren't going to even arrive until 10.
