A Few months back I got a text message from Oxyguy that he reserved two room for Templecon and I was in for one of them. At that time I put in for my time off from work so I have had all that taken care of for some time. It was time to register for the con and to get signed up for some of the events. Last year I bought my tag the night before the conventions started from a guy in the lobby who had a spare from a buddy who couldn't make the trip. I also had to wait in line to play in any event hoping for drops. While I had a blast last year I want to square away more of the details this year so after getting home from work yesterday morning I got on the computer and pre-registered. The website is infuriatingly slow but after ~45min I finally had my registration taken care of and it was time to look at events.
I took a break from trying to register due to the sheer frustration of con registration. It took almost another 2 hours but by the time I closed my eyes for my nap I was registered for two events and wait listed on two more.
At the current time I am paying in:
*Warcaster's Dilemma 11pm-7am Friday night
*Hardcore 10am-7pm Saturday
Wait listed for:
*Time Crisis Friday afternoon
*Blood, Sweat, Tiers Sunday afternoon
I think I am going to skip the team event this year as I reluctantly played in it last year and it was REALLY long. I have already started playing with list ideas for some of the tourneys. In the coming weeks I will set up some checklist and to do list as I would like to make an attempt to play fully painted in every event. At the very least I would like to try and play basic painting requirement. I know she is on the squishy side but I think I want to get Calandra back on the table more in the coming months and try and play atleast one list with her at Templecon. The other 'locks I have on the "looking to play" list are Borka, Jarl, Grim, Gunny (maybe just iron area), and eBloodsong. I played a crap ton of pMaddy at Templcon last year and even though I had pretty good success with him I think he might be on light duty for this years convention. Well time for bed.....much more Templecon talk in the next few months.
