With only a little over a month left before PAX West 2018 kicks off, we have a few more announcements/reminders to send your way regarding various things about the server and events going on within it. Shall we begin?
First things first: PCD Merch! That includes shirts, pins, and badges. This isn’t just a reminder, but now deadlines are coming up. Let’s go one by one.
Shirts: The PCD West 2018 Shirt will be available until Friday, August 17th. After that, the design will be retired. Get one while you can!
Pins: Pin orders will be closing temporarily on Thursday, July 19th. If you definitely want to get your hands on one, order soon. We can not guarantee how many will be available after initial orders close. Orders will then open up several weeks later once more to those who would like to order from the remaining pool. This is for both West and Unplugged.
Badges: Looking to get your hands on a PCD Badge to rep at either PAX West or PAX Unplugged? Reserve one soon, as reservations will close Friday, July 27th to give sufficient time for the creation and ordering process.
NOTE: For those of you attending Unplugged, a part of the badges are slightly different since the event is focused around tabletop. Below you can see the small change. If you have a badge from a previous event, are attending Unplugged, and want the tabletop variant, feel free to reserve a new one for the event. If you don’t feel like donating to get a custom badge, no worries! Just reserve a free one.
We got lots of responses to our tournament survey (which you can still vote/add options to) and we’re happy to say that yes, tournaments will be happening in the near future! We’re still working out some of the details since these things take time, but right now it’s looking like the first tournament will be either Overwatch or Rocket League. While we work out the logistics (and prizes), you sit tight. We’ll have more info on that soon. Our goal is to have our first tournament before PAX West rolls in. We’ll see if we can make that happen. This first tournament will be sign-up based with a first-come first-serve policy. Future tournaments may have different ways of entering, but that’s still further down the road.
A New Challenger Approaches
Alright, not so much a challenger, but a new stream! Starting in just a few weeks, we’ll be hosting a new live stream we’re calling “PAX Prep”. *cue splash art*
To give you the gist, the idea behind the stream is to discuss the upcoming PAX event. We’ll be talking about some tips we’ve learned along the way to make the most of your trip and event, discussing what we’re excited for, interacting with community members in the chat, and plenty more. We want this stream to be something a lot of people can enjoy, interact with, and hopefully even benefit from, so we hope you decide to join us! It should be a ton of fun. We’ll be announcing the date and time soon enough, but if you’re interested in the premise and want to suggest a day of the week or time of day to better your chances of being able to stop by, feel free to do so in the #suggestions channel within the server.
Thanks for reading this big wall of text. Tried to add some fancy images to hold your interest… did it work? No? Well it was a valiant attempt. We look forward to seeing you at PAX West 2018 in less than 50 days!
