The-Elite MOAM (MEET OF ALL MEETS) at AGDQ 2019!
« on: November 29, 2017, 09:47:51 AM »
This thread is for planning and organization for The-Elite at AGDQ19. Why so early? I think you know why after the AGDQ18 shitstorm. The primary goal of this thread is to get as many Eliters as humanly possible together in as close of vicinity as possible. Some people have talked to each other for 10, 15, even nearly 20 years and still never met. This may be the only time to fix that.

AGDQ in its current form may not last much longer so this may be our last chance to have the convenient option of the event connected hotel venue to host the dozens of people that want to come. If GDQs become a convention or some shit, the whole point will be pretty much gone as we would be staying in a hotel not connected to the event... something we could do at any time in any hotel in America.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/16czDGAQlSAQfI9xTgwYQK1b-qW3KBcL0XyOVOE99Ng8/edit#gid=0



GOAL 1: Get every willing Eliter to come to AGDQ, especially those who have not been to a major meet.

HOW TO ACCOMPLISH THIS GOAL:
- Get Ace and other high profile eliters who have not come before to commit as early as possible. If Ace and say Marc were to come, everyone else will domino effect commit to coming.
- Host a marathon on The-Elite's twitch channel to raise money for foreign Eliters travel costs (this is a separate massive project that we will need to plan for)
- Pester people frequently and ASAP about this so they have ample time (1 year 1 month from this post) to start planning themselves with time off work and money, etc.



GOAL 2: Submit both GE and PD RTA runs to serve as a foundational reason for us being there (and make registration free for runners).

HOW TO ACCOMPLISH THIS GOAL:
- Have a well thought out plan for the game submission form to maximize the chances of both games being accepted.
- Have dedicated skilled commentator(s) for both games
- Make one or both runs a race to get more Eliters involved in the runs. Relay race is also an option.
- The runner(s) having a recent history of running RTA for the game on stream for the submission judges to see.

The timeline for having submissions ready should be approximately the same as AGDQ18:
Spoiler



GOAL 3: Book as many rooms adjacent to each other as possible at the event hotel.

HOW TO ACCOMPLISH THIS GOAL:
- The moment that GDQ announces the venue and dates for AGDQ19, someone will need to call the hotel and see if its possible to book for the week of GDQ right then
- If not, then a dedicated hotel booker will need to be on standby for the precise moment that event booking goes live to call in and reserve rooms

Imagine having a setup like this:
Spoiler



GOAL 4: Have tons of CRTs and recording devices brought to the event.

HOW TO ACCOMPLISH THIS GOAL:
- Find someone who is willing to help accumulate a ton of CRTs to bring (josh, etc)
- Everyone that is driving should bring every small CRT they own that works

I can probably contribute like 5-6 consoles worth of capture, maybe even more by then. Probably close to 100% on going.

I can do this as well, and yes to all 3, if I'm coming from home BWI is much closer but if I'm at AGDQ when picking up the other 2 are closer

I'm 90% in. This is gonna be a meet that no one will wanna miss. Even if you're overseas in Europe or elsewhere, see if you can make this one.

Ace, do your best to attend this meet. A lot of it depends on you. It's tough for any of us to determine where we will be in the next year and half but do your best to prepare because you'll attract a lot of eliters.

PM me on discord or the boards if you wanna room together.



Embrace the grind.

I don't think I have posted in this thread before.

I am 100% interested in going. My only concern is the visa. Not even money. Because I am not applying for my master's degree this year, I will have to rely on a visiting visa. For obvious reasons, it is very difficult to convince the consulate people to give me a visiting visa and clearly 'gaming convention' or the likes will not work. Some technical conference is my best bet, but we will see. I can only confirm if I am going by around August or September. Obviously I'll try for something as early as possible.

VISA APPLICATION:

Hi I'm planning on shooting a lot of people whilst being in your country, but also as fast as possible. With some luck I might even break a record, lets all hope for some good hostages and some grenades.

I'm like 95% in, money and time off will most likely be fine just going to wait for more people to confirm i suppose. As time goes on I can only see myself losing more interest in these "gaming meets/events" lol so would be good if we can make this work and just have a good, memorable time with everyone there

About GOAL 1, what kind of marathon are you guys thinking of doing? Several eliters taking turns playing GE/PD or something with a schedule and several runners beating different games they know? I can get in on both. The earlier we plan this sort of event, the multiple instances of it we can do throughout the year.

we will likely have a mix of races, solo IL/RTA attempts, and non GE/PD material. since we all dont run different games outside of GE its obviously much more difficult to flesh out a full 72 hour marathon with interesting material so we will need to work pretty hard to overcome that (we can do it). even still though we have plenty of runners who could play different games for something like this

i can play doom 64/blast corps, jono could do star fox, goose could do mario golf, flicker could do sote, etc. not everyone who plays other games has to do them but they would be helpful for sure. once AGDQ18 is completely over i will probably get into the early planning phase of the MOAMathon

Could also maybe do interviews/talks with top players/people who want to submit or go to AGDQ
