Lane blocking raffles

Can we someday please STOP allowing booths to do live raffles.

Not sure who but there was a HUGE lane blocking raffle being done, with a camera crew.

I asked an enforcer why this is still a thing and got a stupid answer. It was bigger than expected. Really?? This happens every damn year... it should always be the expected outcome of a raffle.

I was told i needed to turn back and go around another way.

I'm sure the fire chief would have shut it down in an instant... why didn't your enforcers do something to stop this??

    Sounds like Steel Series is causing problems again.

    The 2 years I've gone, they come really close to causing a riot right before the expo hall closes because they give out a bunch of stuff.

    I can imagine your frustration. I myself hate standstills and being redirected. I get both sides and probably why they’d prefer a live drawing Vs sign up now and we’ll announce later type of deal. I don’t have a resolution for this other than that they relocated to another room for the raffle like have a raffle hall or something. However it’s pax and my experience is that it’s meant to be big and hyped! (As a side note I won some good stuff though so maybe i’m Biased).

    Sorry

    I'm good with it being big and hyped. I don't do a lot of raffles myself, I take a shot at maybe one or two with good gear being put up, but I still like it. And I don't mind going around raffles that I'm not participating in.

    The raffles should be announced on Twitter and the winners report to the both within 30min or so. No reason to further clog up already clogged pathways

    I think the crazy raffles are part of the show. There are always multiple paths to get to places; I don't find the blockages to be much of an issue.

    This is what Square enix did and it was a great system
