    Ladies and Gentlecupcakes,

    As we're all no doubt aware there's a palpable (you can palp it) excitement in the air as the first convention that Carbine will be attending since the release/pre order announcement has been made.

    PAX East 2014. It's going to be great!

    Whats more, there's going to be a pile of us WildStar fans (more than last year's PAX East) out there - and I reckon we ought to take some time out from the busy con to socialise!

    The community is at that wonderful stage - we've got a set release date, gameplay experience from the beta and time spent getting to know each other ingame/across fansites - and now we can do the face-to-face thing!

    So, share if you're going and joining the community - let's get some planning going for meeting up (in addition to the official Carbine Hangout on Saturday) be it at the con or external bars/venues.

    #WildPAX2014 - it's on like Eldan Augmentation!

    Count us in!

    We're in a bit of a weird position as Domichi and Krissy are bringing their son Seth, who can't attend the official meetup due to the age restrictions at the bar. I think it would be good to pick a venue that's open to those who can't yet partake, and preferably really close to the center so people don't need to worry about cabs and such.

    Regardless, hope everyone who goes has a great time!

    There's a couple of pre-event meetups that are pretty popular - the PAX Magical Mystery Tour and the Boardgame Nights which I'd recommend people to check out. Since me and gentlestar are driving over we could certainly pack a few games if we want to get all WildStar fan exclusive about it :)

    Otherwise an age-neutral venue would be cool - though trying to keep near the convention center might result in it being best to just annex a corner of the center and hang out there for a part of one day :) Although public transport in Boston is great - with the subway linking most everywhere (aka "The T") and being pretty darn cheap for a week pass ($18)

    It'd also be cool for another part of the weekend to grab a drink at a nearby watering hole - maybe checking out the official venue on Friday some time? Depends on what the community fancies!

    I'll be there with other members of the AltTabMe crew! Very excited for the WS Party on Saturday, the Curse party last year was a blast!

    And no more signing up for beta keys XD

    Edit: I'll most likely make an appearance at the pre-pax boardgame event at the Westin during varying times.

    Seth is 19 IIRC, but Domi can correct me if I'm wrong. Anything 18+ will be fine, though. Thanks, gentlestar. Let me know if I can help you and Zap plan anything, M:N will be glad to assist!

    You guys are so sweet and considerate, taking Seth's age handicap into consideration! We really appreciate it!

    I'll be there as well as a hand full of other Subterfuge members. Look forward to meeting everyone. I'm up for pretty much anything.

    Guys, if there's anyone not going who wants to get their hands on a plush Rowsdower or five... let me know via private conversation and we'll try to arrange something.

    As to plans for PAX East... me and @gentlestar will be onsite from late Wed and are planning to hit the Whale Tour on Thu morning (10am), followed by the Aquarium (whenever the tour returns) then finishing off with some eats over at the Hard Rock Cafe (indeterminate time!) - if you want to join us then give a shout out here on this thread.

    Friday, well you'll find me at the WildStar booth! A lot.

    We need to arrange a meetup during/shortly after show hours that are family friendly so if anyone has venue/time suggestions then let us know!
