Per today's email.
"Housing registration for Gen Con 2018 will open on Sunday, February 11. In partnership with housing provider Q-rooms, we have made some adjustments to the housing registration process. Room assignments are now unique and personal to the Gen Con account holder who purchased the badge and requested the assignment. In 2018, room assignments cannot be transferred, traded, or otherwise re-assigned among Gen Con attendees. "
So, is there a good reason for this, other than to just stick people with fees and make their housing process less flexible and less enjoyable, but easier for GenCon to manage?
