MechCorp going to be at DragonCon this year?
« on: August 28, 2014, 01:37:01 PM »
Just found this forum today, wish I had found it a week or two ago. I'll be attending DragonCon with my wife and some friends for the first time this year.

I see in previous years that MechCorp was at the DragonCon with the Battletech pods, anyone know if they will be there again this year and where I may find them? I've wanted to try one of these things out for about 10 years now and have never had a chance. If they're going to be there I'll have to find them.

Thanks,

I looked and I didn't see anything listed when I googled MechCorp Dragoncon in the past month.  I did find a post from 2010 on Facebook that said they are were with the gaming track at the bottom of the Hilton.  Gaming is still in the Hilton, I would ask them.  They might have a definite answer.  I'm going to try to find them too now.  Sounds fun.

The pods were down in the Hilton basement this year.  Didn't play this year but did last year.  It's an absolute blast.  I just wish they sold a "Filler" pass.  If there are open pods you get dumped into the match but if there are pods sold at the normal per-game rate, you just sit and wait.  Or something like that. I can justify a game or 2, but but much more at the going rate and why let pods go empty?

I've never gotten in one of those pods, but I loved me some MechWarrior back in the day.

They've been in the Hikton basement the past two years. I'm sure they'll be there again this year. So fun!

Yeah, I think they have been in the basement of the Hilton since gaming moved there like 6+ years ago.  Pretty safe to say they will be there again.
