I loved the event way better than previous and I think the venue played a big part in that.

A big negative I felt was the viewing experience on stream one for me at least was very much negatively influenced by the bright studio lights, I ended up not watching runs that I wanted to watch because of them. I understand that they need to be on the current runner and people on stream but did all of them need to be on all the time and do they really need to block the screen?

I had constant vision blotches in the main stream hall because of them.

I actually felt it was a big plus that the hotel did not allow outside food, I can say a lot of good things about the community but I know from experience that they would not be able to handle eating on the top floor without it being as gross as last year.

Oh yeah, I didn't run anything but if I had the multicolored donation light would have had to go, it was obnoxious, I might be extra sensitive but could never have focused on a game with that in my peripheral vision.

So as an attendee only the event was amazing and now I can't wait for the next one.

+- The location was awesome, while I'd rather have it in Stockholm, Växjö was easy enough to get to.
+ Fort Knox was a great venue, I loved the LAN setup.
+ Scandic was great.
+ The Lanyards were nice, I wish I'd got the email about the images but things happen.
+ The hoodies looked so nice, I wish I had bought one.
+ I love the bonus streams, please keep doing them.

- End of ESA confusion, I think a lot of people thought that we would pack up Sunday evening, this could have been communicated better, maybe plan some light activity after cleanup or just a post ESA celebration just so that people remaining don't end up with absolutely nothing to do.

- The LAN, I think it's super cool that this was arranged, however, it could have easily been integrated with ESA, the room was for non stream related stuff and was almost empty, we could easily have shared that space, I overheard people who were disappointed that they couldn't play rockband for example.

- Stream Layout, took way too much real estate it really did not need that much space dedicated to things that were not the game.

- Bad computers, I lent my computer to one of the runners because the ones supplied didn't even run his game, I understand that you can't supply consoles for everybody, but carrying a PC from home is not something everyone can do. It would have been good enough with a single PC reserved for runners to practice on.

- No big projector, almost impossible to see the runner from the audience and bad sound made actually watching runs on site not as good as it could have been.

- It ended, should have gone on forever 😡 , the worst!

Also a suggestion, a food truck might be a good idea, I was on a demo party that had an all night food truck parked outside and it was gold.

Yeah, just add the amount of seconds that the timer was paused to the end and you should be good.

Cool idea, this made me get my ass of my chair and haul it to närcon for the first time, so I'll most likely be there.

As a twitch viewer I'd just like to thank for an amazing event, it was really fun to watch.

The only real complaint I have is that the background audio at times was too loud, you could hear people yelling (maybe from the other stream?) and sometimes it made it hard to hear what the runner was saying.

I'd love to come next year, even if I can't run anything.

Over all it was great guys, thanks for organizing!

Thread: Could someone connect my account to my ZSR name?

Started by: IrregularprogrammingIrregularprogramming

Thank you, however that only linked to one of my runs, I assumed it was linked on username I guess. 🙂

I play ganonless more extensively.

Sorry for the inconvenience. I just don't want to take up two spots in the list 🙂

Actually, you can just remove the ganonless one and I'll just resubmit if that's easier.

Started by: IrregularprogrammingIrregularprogramming


My name on ZSR is Irregular_programming and since this site didn't allow for more than 20 letters I shortened it, which resulted in the site not recognizing it I guess.

Also my OOT run is very old, is this a manual update process?

Thanks 🙂
