Yep. Feels like there is way less controversy this year than last year, and I have to say I miss it. I remember worst HOUSING Ever threads, lanyard freak-outs and so on. This year everyone just seems so... reasonable. It's really boring. Where are the damn lunatics?

Sorry 'bout that, guys. We  banned some of the worst offenders, and now even I feel the lack of controversy.

We could start a "Worst Gen Con Experience" thread?

Probably won't have the previous level of rage & lunacy, mind you.

Um, I once wasn't able to get ahold of a physical program book until Friday. Does that count? Even "bad" Gen Con is pretty good. Like pizza.

I'm amazed at much the simple change of disallowing room trades apparently calmed down the housing riot.

I think it is a combination of things that Gen Con has done. I really appreciate that Gen Con really tries to give us the best experience possible both at the Con and on here. Thank you to everyone at Gen Con for striving for continuous improvement.

I'm in 6 games pbp, running 3 pbp games, doing GM mentoring games for Savage Worlds and Dungeon Worlds for new GMs, running a biweekly face to face game in the ETU setting for Savage Worlds and playing a game of 13th Age online weekly live.  I'm keeping myself busy...

I'm enjoying the peace and quiet. Let's not ruin it with a manufactured controversy. I'm sure the natural evolution will bring one up well before Event Reg.

Ugh, (Insert your favorite game here) is the worst game ever! I never want to play it again. I'd much rather play (Insert a game you loath here).

I declare that cosplayers with huge backpacks dragging wheeled luggage through the vendor hall is a good thing. FIIIGHT MEEEE!!!

Well, I see that there is a distraction about, that may be getting all the attention; that being Pathfinder 2.0, people are just focusing on.  Also, think it is a bit early.  

Ghost/trolls do not start up until June/July, they just want to start trouble. 

Lanyards, well the lesson was learned from last year's sellout and should be corrected this year.  

Kind of surprised we are not hearing more on True Dungeon changes but that may happen when event selection starts.  

I use the doldrums to start reading the rule books of games I am looking forward to playing at Gen Con.
