I will be at PAX, as I am every year. And yes, I'll be seeing those two games. ;)

living in Atlanta, Dragoncon has always been a odd one for online games. They all this sci-fi / fantasy / comic things going on but only have two online game companies coming this year, that is all. Very weird.

That's not true at all, MrG! Not only are Sony and Funcom going to be there, but we'll also have representatives from AQ Worlds, Fallen Earth, Kingdom of Loathing, Fusion Fall, Runes of Magic, EVE Online, and possibly others that are escaping my mind at the moment.

Well that is news to me, why can't I find that any place on the DC website? The only thing I found was FunCom and Hi-rez. This is one reason me and friends don't go, we really can't find a good list of who ( the companies) will be attending.

Don't get me wrong, I am not knocking DC in anyway. It's great for Atlanta business. I think the website just needs some work done to make it more user friendly or more information on the attendants added. Well maybe I am knocking just the information that is on the DC site.

You can find more info on the MMORPG track at http://www.dc-mmo.org In fact, most of the tracks have their own websites where you can get more details about their guests and events. (The list of tracks on the main D*C website should have links to all of them.)

There are over 50 events this year in the MMO space, not to mention our World of Warcraft party which draws a pretty big crowd, even by Dragon*Con standards.

In fact, 7 WoW Events + events for Age of Conan, Warhammer Online, Lord of the Rings Online, Star Wars: The Old Republic, Champions Online, Fusion Fall, Force of Arms, City of Heroes, Guild Wars, Second Life, Anarchy Online, Star Wars Galaxies, Everyquest, EQ2, The Agency, DC Universe Online, Free Realms, Kingdom of Loathing, Runes of Magic, Fallen Earth, AdventureQuest Worlds, Global Agenda...

MMO Track guests include:
Felicia Day
CKKnight (you know... the WoW Addons guy? (and Warhammer Online... and...))
Richard Knaak and Keith R.A. DeCandido (WoW lore novelists)
Timothy Zahn (Yes, he writes MMO's too)
Aaron de Orive (Star Wars: The Old Republic, SWG, AO, and others)

6 Parties, a trivia contest, a Horde vs. Alliance Blood Drive...

But more to your original point... Part of the reason "Dragon*Con has always been an odd one for online games" is that we weren't a track until last year.

I'll be going as well, hope to see you guys at the FunCon panel. I'm probably gonna try and ask a few pre PAX Secret World questions, cause that's one of my main reasons for going (That and maybe seeing a few actors and getting some Babylon 5/Farscape stuff). Hopefully it will be a lot of fun, being my first time going.

I live in Atlanta and I've never been before. I'm not sure what days are the best to go. I just really wanna hang with the massively staff and play Earthrise. Is it free to get in?

The party is free but the pass for the convention is not. There is one day passes I believe for 35ish. www.dragoncon.org

"Next week we'll have more detailed information on where we will be at any given time, including who's attending, which panels we'll be hosting, booth demos and more."

Did I miss the announcement? Dragon*Con starts tomorrow, and I'd love to meet some of you.

Krystalle is working on a post for this morning, but I will be speaking at a GW panel at 1pm and we will be hanging around the MMO track most of the weekend.
