As someone who is attending from America, every day, I get more anxious on having to make last minute decisions (money, taking off from work, flights, housing, etc.) depending on whether or not my game(s) will get in. Just something to consider with when you announce your cuts, because the sooner I know if I'm going or not, the sooner I'll know how much money I'll need and what I'll have to do to make arrangements. Just please keep this in mind, I hope for a successful ESA2016!

The final cuts and schedules won't be out until a few months before the event. We ran a poll asking when people would like the schedule out and the most common answers were one-two months before the event.

The thing is, I understand that if you're coming from America, things will become more expensive (I've been to AGDQ 5 times), but deciding on going only if your game is in, is going to mean you have to deal with this sort of problem. I would advise you make a decision on whether to come regardless of whether you have a run or not, then book and organise travel now, rather than waiting to see if you make it down the line.

We can't make the schedule too early, because then people won't have enough time to really practice things and we could end up cutting a load of stuff unduly.

I don't disagree with anything you said at all! It's just something to remember. Of course I'd rather it be earlier with my situation, but your logic is 100% just. I just thought I'd just voice a different perspective, and I just happened to be browsing here, so I thought I'd drop a line 🙂

Most likely not arriving until the 25th

Good chance that I'll be arriving Saturday July 23rd in the evening like I did back in ESA 2014.
Going to be there for the whole week, now I need to find a good flight deal that can accept my luggage.

I'll arrive late on the 23rd and will stay for the entire even till Sunday 🙂

I have a few things I have to fill in regarding my game submissions.

I don't remember if I filled in availability or not, but I have no memory of it so I might as well say that I'll be there the whole event!

About my Street Fighter 2010: The Final Fight run: I don't know if this could be considered now, but I forgot about a potential race when I submitted it. I asked WERY about it and he's up for it, but maybe it is required for him to post here as well. Or it's not possible at all because we already submitted and it's too late.

About my Alundra run: Anyone having clicked that run link when it said USA/NTSC must've been confused. So the region is supposed to say NTSC-J. Sorry about this, I'll blame it on not being used to running games in Japanese.

Also forgot to mention availability. Assuming my submissions make it in, I will only be available from late 24th onwards. I will be getting in likely late afternoon that day. Thanks 😃

I also forgot that my Spyro 2 submission has no commentary on it, I am happy to dub some commentary if selectors would like it 🙂

I posted it in the wrong topic, so I will mention it again:

I'm available from 27th onwards. There is a possibility, that I could come earlier, but don't count on it.

Ok, so, me and werster were planning to race a game. He submitted it as a race, I thought i did too. I didnt realize I never sent the submission until right after submissions closed. Can we still do the race?

I want to drop my Super Mario Bros. 2 All Level estimate with 5 minutes to 0:25:00

 
  brainfluidbrainfluid

I'll also attend the whole event, should my submission get accepted

vvasco55 submitted a race in Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy - Any% No Major Skips where i'm the second runner.

Sadly i was a few hours late to submit my run too, so i hope that could get noted in case Jak and Daxter gets in the schedule. thx 🙂

Hey Guys 🙂

first of all i will be probably available from the beginning of the event until the morning of the 29th, so not quite to the end OpieOP

Second thing about my "The Addams Family SNES -Any%" submission - Due to a glitch we recently discovered my submitted estimate by 35 minutes is a bit high, so i would like to drop it on 20 minutes.
But actually i would like to see my "All Bosses" get accepted though OpieOP

Also thanks for the great work you are all doing 😃

I hope my submission (Mega Turrican) won't get overlooked because there was no commentary on the video I submitted - I submitted my best run and it was an offline attempt so I didn't have the mic on. Just wanted the video to be more about the game and how the speedrun currently looks. I can obviously do commentary while playing.

Do runners need to buy a ticket?

It is correct that I have agreed on a race in this game!

Just a question: as i said in a previous post ii cannot take too many days off from work, so my availability will be max 4 days (2 weekdays + sat and sun), in the beginning or in the end of the marathon. If all my games pass the 2nd cut, will it be possible to be playing them in these 3/4 days?
This is the reason i'm waiting to book flights / hotels till the final schedule is published.
