@wargamingaddict87 , what do you say? Do you want to try your hand running an event during Open Play?
Im in for a C3V/SOV open tourney.
What is needed from me to make this happen? (There's 3 people signed up excluding me?)

I just want to point out that this is not an entirely accurate representation of the percent of us who have purchased tickets.

For example, I am unable to purchase a ticket because of the time overlap from the 4 pm event that day, and so I have purchased generic tickets that I will be using to enter Thursday night open play (and I know I'm not alone in this group).

Just mentioning that this number will not be an accurate indicator of anything until after the Thursday night open play happens this year and all the generic entry tickets are collected.

Agreed...and this issue is on me for the timing cross over.

You can't use the same uncommon hero more than once.

Re: GENCON 2019 Official Events

Should we have a separate thread to ask people who is playing for Wise Men's whatever and Open Play since many of us can't sign up?

Then if you can use 1 uncommon, then can you use 1 card of a common squad? I don't see the difference. Neither are unique.

The official rules for uncommons state that uncommon heroes are considered unique heroes. See the book of the Feral Troll or the BftU rulebook for clarification.

This is from the event description on the Gencon website. Is it supposed to be 410 or is the first round supposed to be 400?

Handle origin: I used to film comedy skits with my friends. I didn't want any cursing in them, so I made up new insults, like "dendrik". Then Sir Denrick came out, and the rest is history.

410. This is just a typo.

Re: GENCON 2019 Official Events

How do you get generic tickets? I am new to this. Old Prankster convinced me that the Old Man would be fun, but I do not have a ticket for it. I already received my pass and tickets. I will play in either the open or the Old Man on Thursday.

Re: GENCON 2019 Official Events

There are booths for buying generic tickets, near the main entrance of the convention center. There will be an early rush of people picking up badges, but after that it's no big deal to walk up and buy some generics. Maybe a wait of a few minutes, if you go when they're busy.
