    TheSwayzieExpress got a reaction from gloop in LTX 2020 VIP tickets sold out this year AGAIN   
    Jesus Christ, can everyone stop all their whining and moaning? No LTX will not be held anywhere other than Vancouver. No they will not do a lottery for VIP tickets. No they will not increase the number of VIP tickets because then what is the point?? If you're too young, too far, etc. to save up enough money that sucks. If your job prevents you from attending that sucks. But moaning to LMG isn't going to change anything. LMG is not going to change a massive event to accommodate the minority. I know we all wish that they could but your whining is why they considered removing VIP all together. So suck it up and realize you aren't going to win everything in life.

    TheSwayzieExpress reacted to Chase Douglas in VIP ticket, make it a draw next time   
    Unfortunately, the nature of a ticket such as the VIP is that there is a limited amount. If the number of tickets is increased it is no longer VIP and a random draw wouldn't help those who do not win the draw as now it be purely up to luck, which probably would not make anyone who didn't win happy.

    TheSwayzieExpress got a reaction from Elektra57 in LTX Tips and Advice from people who went last year   
    We stayed in Surrey last year and I figured I should post my experiences in case people are curious how feasible doing that is.
     
    I ended up choosing Surrey because I'm a Marriott rewards member and the civic autograph collection hotel there is significantly cheaper than similar Marriotts in Vancouver. Surrey isn't the nicest city so I definitely cannot speak to other lodging. However, the Marriott is about 100ft from the skytrain rail. Which was super convenient and nice. At around $100 USD per night you get a ridiculously fancy room.
     
    The skytrain is super nice, you buy a little plastic card for a dollar or two and then you load it with rides. The day pass seemed to be the best value from Surrey as it was unlimited for 10 dollars (CAD I think).
     
    If you have a big pc/monitor I wouldn't recommend staying in Surrey as it's a 45 minute ride to waterfront by skytrain, unless you have access to a car. We drove up from the US last year so we drove our PCs into Vancouver and parked in the garage for LTX19 and used the skytrain for everything else (we visited for a week).
     
    Surrey isn't the safest place, there is a lot of homeless/strung out people. They generally seemed to keep to themselves but I'm also 6'3' Army vet with a large beard so experiences may vary. I will say I always had my guard up when I walked around Surrey. On the morning walk to the train station you get to dodge puddles of vomit from the night prior so that's fun! There is an amazing Pho place located next to the skytrain station that I will definitely be going back to next year!  It's  called: Phở Tâm Vietnamese Restaurant.

    All of the tournaments Dreamhack offered for the BYOC were during the convention. I think it would've been better to offer them once the convention closed so that people who wanted to participate in both didn't have to miss the convention.

    I don't know who this is but he seems like an idiot... of course they can't pay for you and everyone you "care about" to come. They have alot of creators attending. Adding +1's would cost a lot of money.

    Hey everyone!
     
    So, I thought about it this morning, and I think it could be pretty fun if we get together and run a big factorio server during the BYOC.
     
    We could use the factorio server system so that someone doesn't have to run a dedicated server. What do you all think? Are any of you game?

    I don't know why he's complaining really, it's a fair deal if you ask me. If his girlfriend wanted to attend then she's just another standard attendee at the show, Louis would have obviously been the main man that the other attendees cared about rather than his girlfriend (not being rude). If he believes ticketing plus extras should be covered for anyone else he'd like to take, then he's completely bonkers to think that.

    I mean I can see both points. There isn't really much for Rossman to gain going to LTX, considering that YouTube isn't what he does on the side (although truth be said, he gained a lot of recognition with it and costumers or potential costumers, but being one shop only he is probably overflowing), and from his point of view it seems kind of petty LMG, being a giant comparing to him, not helping more with the costs, and he did pay for it before.
     
    On the other hand, LTX is costing LMG money, unlike what Louis believes. I'd say even if they don't seek profit it is an investment to their image. If it keeps growing like this, eventually it'll turn into something massive and a reference, but the truth of the matter is that it is costing them money at the moment and will require LMG to grow to keep it up, or convince heavier sponsorships. A few hundred dollars more wouldn't hurt them but doing this for Rossmann's S.O. would require them to be open to do this for everyone invited too.
     
    I just hope they talk it out and end up in good terms at least.

    Louis has been on the WAN show and collabed in a few LTT videos. He's a pretty cool guy for all stuff mac repair related, but is known for his strong opinions... last I heard he was going to LTX, shame he won't be there I was looking forward to it

    You should've received an email when you purchased the tickets that allowed you to link them to a dreamhack account. Go find this email and link the tickets to an account and you should be good to go.

    I'm coming from Colorado, so I'm looking at 29 hours but I think it'll be worth it to have a nice monitor and PC there. Also I plan on exploring canada and have planned a longer trip to allow me to see more of Canada. I'd definitely recommend finding a travel buddy, it'll help the drive go faster. Good luck!
