Are there really enough AO players for this to work out and not only have a dozen people there?

@SnarlingWolf: That was my thought, too. This con might have more staff than attending guests.

On the other hand side.. AO getting it's own convention.. does that mean, the game's big overhaul is finally coming? I want to believe.

Am I correct in assuming this isn't a Funcom-sponsored event? It looks from the webpage as if it's a fan event without any official Funcom stuff.

I could be wrong but...is it just wishful thinking on the organisers' part?

This is...odd.

This event is obviously not going to be some gigantic convention in the traditional assumption of the term. We are putting it together because AO has a rich history of close-knit community and a fantastic player base, many who very much wanted something like this to happen. Funcom helped with the funding, and they will be with us at the event, but this convention is designed and run entirely by the players; FC has no direct role in AOCon's planning or execution.

It is rather likely we will have a full house for this con, but even if it does by some chance end up with only a couple dozen people, we are going to have a great time partying, gaming, socializing and celebrating the world of Anarchy Online, and that's what counts. :)

@Tarryk

Thanks for clarifying that. I am sure this grass-roots effort, along with Funcom funding, will be fun for the fans of AO.

No, this is possible. COH has these little small getherings all the time. A couple devs show up and they do simple events in a hotel meeting room. Its nothing on the level of Blizzcon.

Anarchy Online was the first MMO I ever played, so it holds a nostalgic place in my gaming history.
