Forums  /  BSG Annual 2017  /  Feedback thread

As the organizers of BSG Annual, as well as the regular BSG's, we would like to ask you guys for any feedback on BSG Annual. Here are a few of the biggest pointers that we would want feedback on:

What are your experiences as a runner? (Game selection, the streaming area, satisfaction with tech during setup, and anything related to you as a runner?)
Experiences as an attendee (Finding the venue, venue, helpfulness of staff, cleanliness etc),
If you signed up as a volunteer, do you have any remarks about the jobs you did for the event?
Experiences from the practice room (Amount of TV's, enough room for different stuff, etc.),
Experiences of accomodation (mass housing, facilities, hotels in the neighbourhood),
Ability to find suitable practice equipment for your game(s).

If you watched at home:

Your experience of the stream (quality, audio balancing, other issues stream related),
Your experience as a donator (the host, donation tracker, timeliness of donations being read),
Contents of the stream (layouts, setup times, etc.)
Your thoughts on the overall standard of runs on display, any major highlights and any genre or era of runs you thought were underrepresented
Feel free to call out a specific timeslot/run if any feedback has to do with a specific run

And of course any other area you can think of!

If you've already written an event pastebin (rather than a shoutouts to friends pastebin) please just copy it over.

In the coming weeks we'll be reviewing the event and your feedback will help shape next year's BSG Annual as well as help improve our regular BSG monthlies.

If you would prefer to submit your feedback anonymously, you can make use of the Google Form below. We'll read everything submitted and hold it in equal stature to public posts here.

Kind regards,


Baskra here not a runner and didn't visit (unfortunately) but as a viewer I felt bad for some of the runners since it looked like they were on their own and. When the run finished the room filled and everyone was there for the next run.

I get night time being quiet but I really felt bad for some of the runners during the day when no one was watching.

Other than that I enjoyed as much as I could watch



My experience as an attendee was very positive. Very helpful and friendly staff, fair prices, and very good food to name a few things.
The venue itself was nice, mass housing was exactly what you would expect. Being a bit outside of the actual town was nice for walkshort, campfires, sleeping during different times of the day/night. Yet the stores were not too far away.
The setup of the stream room made it easy to watch runs you wanted to see but also holds my only negative memory to the event. The chairs were pretty uncomfortable ;-)

As for the stream: I think the setup times were pretty good. The layout was clean and at the same time very nice.

The variety of runs was really good. Instead of seeing only the usual runs for marathons it was interesting to also see runs from smaller communities and more obscure games like the GB Ninja Gaiden.

There are a few personal highlights to me. The most memorable runs were the Lufia runs, being able to commentate the alttp rando race was very special to me. Sill the best moment can only be the interview with the representative from the Dutch cancer society. Oh and of course #campfire 😃

Last but definitely not least I only want to say "thank you" to the staffirst, and the volunteers for making this great event possible.

Best Regards,
