Post con blues edition

As the xon coes to aclose, let's take a moment to thank those people who made this ALA a little special for yourself. Could be anything from some cute girl or guys giving you a smile to getting plastered all night with with your fellow gulls

Stay safe and see you guys at the next one.

Dammit to many shitty party weebs. Thanks for co-opting my con.

Might as well have been a giant club where you got shitfaced. But you know with costumes.

Other than that it was a fun con

Tfw didnt talk to a single girl who wasnt a slut.
>>
This con was pretty fun. A lot of the panels sucked ass and the halls still seemed really crowded but holy shit you guys know how to make the nights awesome. Thank you guys for the invites to the parties! I had the most fun just shit talking all night on Friday. We were so happy to see everyone again and it was nice meeting you other cucks <3!

Any seagulls hanging around before the con ends?

It was all we had, the con itself was super shitty.
>>
I thought the con was pretty fun after I got the layout of the area. They need a lot more content to fill up the time and I was a bit disappointed everything started to shut down around 11-12 (ie Karaoke). But parties were good, lots of food options, lots of places to spread out so its not too crowded. ALA did a good job and just needs to work out the kinks for its growth.

I'm a bit sad its not small anymore though. It felt like a mini Fanime this year.
>>
Andrew was the biggest fucking bro. I'm inclined to make Andrew award ribbons for next year for anyone I catch helping people out.

Staffed for Prog Ops, nothing spectacular for me on this. Wish I could have partied but being two miles away and having to be back by 9 every day is a bitch.

But Destiny panel was awesome. Ugh I really wanted to talk to the hosts more about lore and shit but couldn't, oh well.

Anyone give me a proper explanation on what happened on night 1 of radison?

Whoever were cosplaying The Fans, I just want to let you know that I want to fuck Corey into unconsciousness and that you guys genuinely made me happy. I lived out a Hotline Miami 2 moment in real life.

The con space was way too fucking crowded for pictures and there were a fuck ton of cosplay that weren't even anime.

That and there was a lot of generic/repetitive cosplay at this con, you only need so many pictures of X or Y

I mean even just trying to find meet up photos. Usually a "did you take my picture" or thread for people to link their photos should up. But I'm not seeing anything. Maybe it's cause people really don't use coscom much anymore and the gathering pages on Facebook don't seem to be getting anybody sharing photos. I was hoping to see photos from the zelda gathering.

The oldschool folks were in my room, which was a couple doors down.

Staying another night but its a more chill night tonight.

Can't speak for Andrew but I am working with some good deals to try and set up something for us at the Ritz Carlton. Obviously, it will need to be much more controlled, but I think I can cut a deal with some things I have going for me.

I plan on going as Kamina, not dandy(because that would be too hot), just check around when the AX postings on CGL start going up, we both plan to have a decision by then.

0%

ALA seems to have become a Godzilla of a con, leaving ruined buildings in its wake.

Well ALA is planned to be there for two more years at least so I'm assuming they have a contract. Radissons are known for being rundown party hotels anyway. Kinda like a step up from a motel six. From what I heard a lot of rooms had issues before congoers even got there. I'm just wondering if people got charged for the damages? I'm not sure if the staff didn't care or if they just didn't know how to handle such a huge situation.
Honestly, if they added more panels/one's that weren't cringefest people wouldn't have resorted to partying so hard so early.

Staff member here! None of us were alerted to the damages and shit until literally Thursday morning. Apparently, some dumb shit on the 1st floor hung his jacket on one of those 'do not pull' water spouts and it flooded 36 different hotel rooms in the hallway. A lot of staff got moved to different hotels as a result.

Now that I am home and got a nap in, time to recap the con.
-Tough Crowd panel on day 0 went great, but had a bad time slot
-Cgl meetup had to be located last minute due to the pool being locked off, but it worked out great in the Raddison Lobby. Great turnout, gave away over half of my "Sloshed Seagull" ribbons just at the meetup.
-3080 tripfag party room aka the Relapse Retreat went great, got to party with a bunch of people including a bunch of anons. My appologies to those who I wasn't able to bring over, ~25 people is the max I am comfortable with in the room before it becomes a sauna. I will host more parties in the future
-New con center is pretty sweet, though some of the hotels left a lot to be desired. No ice machines at the Ratchetson meant we had to go on ice runs everyday.
-Free fucking parking
-Jungle juice and space fireball sent many people to the shadow realm

Overall it was fun times, best con in a while and a great way to break in the new venue.

For what it's worth, our toilet flushed 1 out of 3 times. Our fridge didn't work and when it did it was very noisy. Con phones WERE down during the Farm party. No extra pillows for extra people (even though you did get a lot to begin with). No hot water Sunday morning. Elevator near the party rooms felt like the Tower of Terror on more than one occasion for me. Pool area closed way too early. Overcharged the room then got the charges removed was a hassle. I've got my complaints but honestly what kind of shitty ALA did people have to deter them from the Raddison so badly?

The Azures/Ayres was actually pretty nice. The rooms were spacious and had some nice amenities including a minifridge, a sink, a microwave and a single serve coffee maker. I was expecting much less. The only problem I had was our ceiling lights (not the one in the bathroom though) didn't work but to be honest- the lamps were really all we needed.

I honestly had a fucking blast, and I talked to you at least five times that con. However, my biggest issue was literally only in the form of "The Radisson". Every party was made fantastic by the people in each party. These various DJ's brought their own shit to the AssMadisson, they could bring their shit to any other hotel as well. The dudes bringing drinks, mixing drinks, serving drinks, and drinking drinks were the ones keeping that boozed up vibe rolling easy. The typical individuals were fun and easygoing, nobody was a stuck-up faggot who actually attended parties. The only thing they did right was ignoring most noise complaints, and even then, they shut down a number of parties.

My room did not have a fridge, the hotel staff ignored our Do Not Disturb signs two times and opened our door asking if we needed service, they didn't give us the keys we needed, and they didn't respond helpfully to any request we had for them. Not to mention our hot water was literally nonexistant on Saturday, but we just laughed and took cold showers while swearing loudly.

The Radisson needs to fix their shit up. I get that it was "our" dorm, but shitty service and maintenance is not forgivable just because it's up to us to have fun.

If you check out it takes them a while to actually check and clean the room, especially if you are doing it on the last day of the con when housekeeping is super busy. That usually buys you a couple of hours. If housekeeping come by you can tell them you are making trips to the car and will be out soon. Just make sure someone is in the room because your key cards will be deactivated.
>>8843490
The hotel was passable but not great, but they let the congoers get away with a lot. I heard about people getting kicked out of the double tree and several other hotels because of noise complaints. Its kind of the trade off you have to accept if you want to host a party.

Could you specify what specifically you'd like to see updated onto the guidebook?? I'll add it to my list. As far as panel amount, during main hours of the day, all the panel rooms had panel listings for most of the day (ranging around 9/10 till 8-10 PM). Did you feel or hear that there were certain places with lack of panels or would you like to see something more diverse??

I was part of two panels where we were almost screwed out of what was needed due to tech running out of items (these things were included in the panel description)

1. Tech had to scramble to find a converter box in order for an ipod to be plugged in for audio. When asked why, the staff said they simply ran out.

2. The Radison panel room had an old projector that needed a laptop with a VGA converter with tech was not informed of. This issue was resolved when Tech actually donated their laptop to the panel room.

The tech staff themselves were very helpful and hauled serious ass to get the issues fixed. However I hope that these comments get seen so that they're better prepared next time

>exhibit hall and artist alley closed at 5 and not 4.
Is this in regards to Sunday??

>>8844418
The acoustics might explain a lot since that room is way more echo than what we used to have. It may help to have AMVs do an audio check before starting the show

First time coner and I loved this con even though it was mostly me people watching. But some things I wish there was more of would be more panels since it seem too lacking. There was so many rooms in the con and in the raddison that could of been used for panels.

I also wish there was more vendors and Artists in the AA since there was so much space to add more.

And desu, I wish Lab Zero was announced as guest since they had a panel on their games and if they were announced as guests, the panel could of gotten more packed.

And I wish the artist alley/dealer's hall didn't close so early since I believe 7pm is too early or atleast make Saturday have longer hours.

Lastly, I wish autographs were held in a room instead of the dealer's hall because it felt so weird being in there when we could of just used an empty room for only autographs.

But congrats to the people running the registrations because that went by so fast on Saturday when waiting for my friend.

>>8844445
I will make sure they do!

>And desu, I wish Lab Zero was announced as guest since they had a panel on their games and if they were announced as guests, the panel could of gotten more packed.
I was the one who set up Lab Zero to come to ALA, and a lot of it got solidified at the last second with them wrapping up Indivisible and their personal work/office situations. Also with their further ventures on Indivisible and how things go for them this year, it might be something to look into if they're interested in coming back and showcasing more of the game.

As for the dealer's hall hours, Saturday it was open from 10-7 which is 9 hrs total. It's already dark out by the time the hall closes.

In regards to autographs, i'll note it and propose it to the team and see if there's another place to host it.

>A Stevens Universe Panel that doesn't have all of it's files corrupted while the panel host tells us about feminism and why you should shut up if you aren't for it.
God I wish I had seen that.

I almost went to the Gen Zed panel just for the pure spectacle of it.
>>
Hey Freeman, I'm trying to add you on FB but it says your profile isn't active or something. Do you have weird settings?
>>
>>8844484
I was in the same area as the Steven Universe gathering. I NOPE'd out of there pretty shortly after it started.

>>8844492
Other people were getting weird errors trying to request me during con too. Sorry about that. Send me your name via tumblr at cglmrfreeman or email me at cglmrfreeman at hotmail and we'll get it sorted out.
>>
>>8844455
I love you for bringing in Lab Zero, Alex Ahad and Persona-sama told me they enjoyed their time talking to fans and being in the AA. I am sure if you talked to them again, they would be more than happy to come back.

Also I went to the JoJo fan panel and the hosts asked for audio sound to play music but never got it.
>>
>>8844523
Glad you enjoyed it! I also hope you got to head to the game room and check out Indivisible! We got Lab Zero a set up so they could run 2nd Encore and demo Indivisible for the attendees.
>>
>>8844339
How about this?
>>8843599
>>
>>8844531
That's something that's *possible* especially after having Anime Dodgeball and having an actual space to put it. I'd highly recommend that if you'd like to see something, make suggestions whenever the main website or the official FB group/social medias do shoutouts for programming suggestions, (similar to when we did guest suggestions.) Or just post about it and if enough people get behind the idea, it could become something we'll look into bringing. That's the usual procedure.

Long as people stay safe, that's definitely priority #1
>>
>>8844484
I really wanted to go to the Gen Zed thing. Nothing sounded more fun than that cringe.

Maguma, any way you can get more French cartoon companies over? Loved seeing miraculously Lady Bug and would do anything to see Ankama Wakfu there.

Are you serious? After all of Ankama's disastrous handling of the English dub at AX? They failed not once, but twice with the cartoon at AX. Not to mention the disaster that was the Kickstarter.

Now if we could get the genuine article over here, the actual people who worked on the French version, that would be spectacular.

>Taco Party will never return according to Alec

Why live
>>
>>8844591
A catering taco food truck. ALA rents it, free basic tacos for everyone. We can all chill in the big tent and eat tacos late at the convention center. The event is a hit each year, but the line was ridiculous, so why not change it's model?

Actually, Maguma, that's my input for you this con. That's the only change I've wanted for ALA for years.

I was legit so happy to see so many food trucks, but the lack of a truck for a taco party just blew my mind.
>>
>>8844591
Didn't get a chance to go to taco or ice cream parties. Were they any good?
>>
>Maguma
>Compiles clips of in-game footage from Street Fighter V
>Calls it an AMV

Nigga, you should be banned from ever sending out AMVs
>>
>>8844567
It's something to consider but that's all dependent on budgets.

>>8844597
Who knows, maybe it can be done. We'll see.

>>8844599
Taco Party was rough since it was run out of a hotel room and not in a big open space for attendees to sit down and relax. Made it hard to keep a chain of movement going.

The Ice Cream social did happen and that was a success!!

>>8844580
I personally would prefer this. But I'll make a note and submit it to them.

Video Game vids have been used in AMV contests for years. *shrug*
>>
Not sure if it's feasible, but some amount of staff patrolling the hotel during the lobby party (if it happens again) would be nice.

I came across two tubby fucks about to play with a fire extinguisher and told them to put it away and fuck off, but I had places to go and dicks to suck, so I imagine they got into more shit later.
>>
>>8844617
Yeah but a lot of the footage were mostly cut scenes. Yours was just a long ass SFV promo vid.
>>
>>8844586
I see what you mean about the dub but the kickstarter was good. I am able to Ebay my Blurays for 3 times what I paid to get them.
>>
So I'm hearing about this roofie situation at the con, and just want to say, if the guys who did it are here, quit that shit and just try to pick up chicks like a normal person.

Seriously, some of us would like to meet girls at cons the normal way, and that's pretty damn hard when they all think every single guy they don't know is a potential rapist.
>>
>>8844635
Oh well. Maybe that's why it wasn't a contestant this year. Everyone's got a preference. Life goes on.
>>
Ayye see yea
>>
My first con and getting ribbons was hard for me since I didn't understand the whole con-culture with it but I at least earned three in the gaming room! It was fun to earn them. And please, someone download the latest step-mania files for DDR.
>>
>>8844648
What roofie situation?
>>
>>8844659
If you know a good resource for acquiring the latest files, I'll pass it along
>>
>>8844661
Evidently some people (mostly girls, naturally) got handed drugged drinks at the big lobby party at the Rad. It's not the first time I've run into similar stuff at a con, either.
>>
>>8844643
Try asking /co/. The kickstarter did succeed, yes, but the way they handled their rewards was garbage. Many missing and broken items. I'm trying to find the old spreadsheet....
>>
>>8844693
Didn't happen. I know 2/3 of the girls who were there and this didn't happen, unless they magically picked only the 1/3 I don't know.
>>

I- I don't know you well enough for that, Charizard...
>>
>>8844648
It turned out to be that lobby part was to blame. Non congoers where getting in there and making a mess everywhere.
>>
>>8844877
IIRC this is a flashback and was stylized differently than the regular show's animation.

Also, did anyone get any ribbons that were specifically designed for cosplay promotion? I saw one and facepalmed. I mean, that's what the ribbons are really for I guess, promoting.
>>
>>8844885
I know at least one. we might be thinking of the same ribbon.
>>
>>8844693
Yeah, that happened, but people should know not to take drinks from strangers or leave their drinks unattended. It's the same as any bar/club. Even without considering drugs, you don't know what the alcohol content of the drink is, and some people just don't handle certain types of alcohol well.
Not saying it's their fault, and I'm sure we can do better next year, but people need to be aware at large parties.
>>
>>8844890
Responsibility is as much the person attending as it is the hosts.
>>
>>8844890
Piggybacking off this post: Does anyone have any information about a panel in which select attendees were subjected to sort various hotsauces and had to organize them in order of how hot they are?

Besides this being a REALLY bad idea for a panel bit, someone had a reaction to the sauce that didn't mix well with the fireball shots they had earlier and had to be taken away?

This could all be rumor I heard from word of mouth though.
>>
>>8844353
>>8844358

I was there for the last 15 minutes or so of the SU panel. By the time I arrived he was on a segment talking about the sound design of the show and had clips from an episode that best exemplified how well utilized it was. After that concluded he had to skip past the next segment as he didn't have time left to cover it and was about to wrap it up until a staffer told him he had 10 extra minutes for his panel. Even then he wrapped it up early so as to let the next panel set up, when attendees came up to chat he asked them to meet outside so as not to disturb the incoming panel.

Another seagull relayed to me how when feminism was brought up a portion of the room got up and left. Having not been there I can't say how he presented the topic but the impression I got was he was well-spoken and informative. Having worked on panels staff at other conventions this dude seemed legit, guess I don't want to let the one comment I see here go unaddressed for what may of been a good panel after all.

It wasn't for broke people. The con itself was pretty lame and completely disorganized . Vendor hall had really nothing unique, some shit happened in the holiday inn and other shit happened at the radison and other stuff at con hall. It was a fucking joke, the radison made it worth it
>>
Still salty about missing the Seagul meetup. Was it better or worse than the AX meetup last year?
>>
>>8845100
Not sure, but if you are talking about the 3093 meetup we are planning something a bit more organized for AX this year
>>
>>8845068
>d . Vendor hall had really nothing unique, some shit happened in the holiday inn and other shit happened at the radison and other stuff at con hall. It was a fucking joke

The panels happened on time, the map was organized and information was easy to get too. Plus events that happened in the Radison were the late night ones as the con center closed. Having Radison events allowed for late night programming.

Plus the benefits of the Radison was that the con goers and the pure [arty people were separated and the con center was not full of drunken antics
>>
>>8844901
The panel wasn't all bad. He just said a few obvious stuff and promoting his own political ideology wasn't a good idea.
>>
>>8845114
>the map was organized

Not when the map lists rooms in one way and the schedule lists them another way.
Yeah, totally organized.
>>
>>8845068
Nothing happened at Holiday Inn other than them loosing both of their only luggage carts for a short time.

I think you may be thinking the Double tree?
>>
>>8844707
By some it seems like only 2 friends that belong to a person who posted on facebook.

That really sucks that it happened at all.

>>8844890
Looking at the group posts, are people that really unaware that parties happened at ALA or was it very visual or at least more people witness damages this time?
>>
>>8844446
Yes. I don't know if that changed in the online schedule. I only found out after I asked the artist alley staff.
>>
>>8845100
Better because you weren't there. Fuck off you lame ass cuck.

The room list was consistent with the floor layout. Show some proof and I'll accept being wrong
