Well a big part of Fanime Tournaments and the Gaming room in general is the spectacle for the attendees to watch, no? Moving the PCs to a smaller room would mean less people can be in the room at one time, and of course the room is going to be a oven. I mean they could project the match someone to the main room I guess, but that is some unneeded complication.
Also last I checked they did not use dedicated PCs for the tournament, they were also used for general PC Gaming as well. They all need to be in the gaming hall.

As for splitting random teams and premade teams, at what point does one face the other, and at that point, besides the random team maybe having a chance to play more then one round or two, does the end result change?
The only way I can see it being fair to split those teams is to do a total split into two separate tournaments, that way one never faces the other and everything can be 'fair'. I dont think that is viable for fanime though, given they have a schedule where they need to run other tournaments. They could run where the randoms are in one bracket and the premades in the other I suppose, with the end result undoubtedly going to the premade side. In that case they could cut off the top final match and make 2 tournaments.
Still any of those kind of defeat the purpose of a tournament in my opinion, putting forth something akin to a handicap in some cases.

Of course I dont work in Gaming Staff and have no idea what there total resources and end goals for tournaments are, but this is my educated guess based on what I have seen at Gaming Hall over the years.

I know from a thread down in the gaming forum that TT Gamings page is still out of date, and from what I can glean from some of the pages that mention Ninja they also appear to be out of date.
Par for the course to have no detailed information on events before may when it comes to Fanime unfortunately.

Following up, the TT Gaming event page shows 3.5 D&D Fri-Sun at 6pm, so there's that.

Last year I ran a session of Maid RPG for a few hours.

Ive been thinking about doing it again, but I need to see if my group is down for it or not. Otherwise I dont have a problem with randoms joining.

I might also run a session of Valor RPG instead, because that game always deserves more exposure.

EDIT: Though I probably wont be able to schedule a time easily until I know the event schedule, and even then getting my group to do something at a certain time takes effort, so it would most likely be a spontaneous event sometime during slow hours.

Though if memory serves I do also remember they did have D&D events on schedule last year or a few years back, so that's always an option.

LineCon is the funniest part of a Con IMO.

But yeah they cant have another situation like last year with a line wrapping up and down around a hotel ballroom.

They probably move i to Marriott, only because they wasted most of the space of the Con Centers reg area since both of the lines before last year did not exist. But obviously there was an issue last year that caused a massive line to form. If that was just because of the location of reg or hiccups on processing isn't an issue really, the main issue is that if there is another time when we get a lineCon, the old area is just far better suited for processing the line, wasted space be damned.

Its a game the weebs play where they take turns doing "ninja moves" against one another in a circle. I think the goal is to strike the body or something. Regardless its pure cancer.

You don't even know what it is and are calling it cancer?


It's a game where people stand in a circle, make a pose and in clockwise order, you do "attacks" to try and hit an opponents open hand. The attack has to be in one fluid motion but the opponent can do one fluid motion as a defensive move. It's a fun game and a staple at Fanime that brings a lot of people together. You can almost always find a game going on somewhere in the game room.

Here is a video of people playing it at Fanime from a previous year: https://youtu.be/UhRMKSX5EWI

I know what it is, just not the details. You did a much better job explaining it, though not really to far from what I put either way.
But yes what you described sounds like some high class weeb cancer.
Says one of the most negative people on this message board with over 2000 posts. OK

I sure do.
I wouldn't call myself negative, but if that is what you see me as then by all means. Am kinda curious what makes me negative beyond disliking a few things but I guess thats not really important either way

Things in the Universe / Fanime Competition: Crunchyroll Expo

Media distribution service Crunchyroll announced on Thursday that it is partnering with LeftField Media to launch a new anime convention titled Crunchyroll Expo (CRX) this year. The convention is scheduled for August 25-27 in Santa Clara, California at the Santa Clara Convention Center. Crunchyroll has launched a website for the event.

With only being 3 months apart and not even 10 miles from Downtown San Jose, this convention could have a huge impact on Fanime if it becomes a regular thing over the next fw years, assuming it stays in the same location.

Its pretty interesting though. Id like to go, but know how my wallet or time will manage it.

I would hope it isnt broken into blocks, that is even more unfair then having to wrestle with everyone at once.

Well I think I got the room I needed. At least I got to the page saying my reservation was complete an all the information looks correct. Still waiting on an email confirmation.

Site is crashing like a Drunk meth-head on a stormy night. This is pretty much as bad as it has always been. Priority Registration not only doesn't solve the issue with getting a hotel room, it doesn't even alleviate stress on the hotel reservation site when it goes up.

EDIT: Op just got my email confirmation

Still have to go through with this again at 10..

Registration / Re: Early Registering vs Normal Registering
« on: December 29, 2016, 04:13:04 AM »
Registration opened up sometime in November. Honestly I doubt you have any chance at a Hotel Room this late in. I imagine a good chunk of people that registered the first day wont even get a room if they didn't get it done in the first few hours. I could be wrong, but seeing how Old Hotel Reservation System worked and the New Reservation System worked last year, I'm pretty confident with my assessment.

Your best bet is to find someone else that is likely going to have a room, or if you are willing to spend the extra cash go reserve a room directly with one of the Hotels in the area. There are a few Hotels within walking distance that don't partner with Fanime, and even Fanime partnered Hotels have a few rooms off the Fanime discounted list. If really desperate you could get a room further out if you have a car or are willing to navigate public transportation.

If you are for sure going regardless of if you can get a room or not (which I imagine will only fly if you are local or get a off-list room), then you might as well save the $10(?) for your badge now. If not, you can play wait and see if you find someone with a room and not risk the waited money.

It could be true, I wouldn't be surprised.

Though I wouldn't worry too much about it, I doubt more then a few dozen at best registered before 12pm so they are not going to affect Hotel Reservation blocks too much.

Or at least I hope =P

That and maybe they upgraded to a better server provider this year.
I also imagine Hotel registering requires a lot more crosschecking and processing which will increase load.

Still I got one registration done with in 5 minutes and the 2nd within 10 so if I don't get a hotel room my salt will crystallize over the whole of San Jose.
