No I Love snow fags edition.

Endless days of lockdown.
Vaccines being rolled out.
Cons set to return later on in the year.
>they say

Any plans at ALL for this year, Brit anons?
>>
>>10554189
It won’t happen. Glastonbury leads the way for festivals, and festivals lead the way for cons. And Glastonbury just cancelled until 2022. We’re fucked
>>
This weeks Covid vaccine numbers from the 1st to the 7th is 2,997,639 meaning that the estimated time everyone will be vaccinated has gone from July 11th to June 14th in that time
>>
>>10554205
Glastonbury attracts 200,000. Toko and Hibana attract 250-350. I agree with your logic RE things like MCM, but you can't put much smaller events in the same boat.

re OP: I'm feeling like I should start working on stuff because I'm reasonably confident I'll be able to go to a con this summer, but at the same time, I really can't be arsed to start without an actual date to work towards.
>>

Same here anon, I just want to see friends again and have somewhat of a social life. Though if no conventions happen this year I will probably save up to go to Japan instead.

>Better get ready for a back to reality homefags

I fuuuuuucking hope so, even if MCM in that month has already fucked over some smaller cons, but imagine having a vaccine passport to enter cons now lol
>>
>>10556522
Organise your own then up north. It’s not hard, people organise meets where they live.
>>
>>10557571
Yeah tbf anyone can host an EGL UK meet, we sometimes see some in manchester/leeds/shef and I’ve seen CLAM and the newcastle comm open up their meets to anyone occasionally in the past I think?
>>
>>10557551
Probably going to happen. Only way the government will probably allow any activities without social distancing.
>>
>>10554255
Update:
This week's vaccination total from the 8th to the 14th is 3,006,145

Daily cases have dropped from 13,000 to (allegedly) 10,000

I... I dunno, I don't mind In a weird way, I just want to see friends and meet-up, I don't need the stress of dealing with all the mental gears that are involved in a con. Just take a train trip somewhere nice and hang out for a day or two.

I think doing something big will make me too anxious anyway.

I guess Tucky is spending the money faster than he’s selling tickets. With 2 extra years to sell tickets for one event I wouldn’t expect them to need donations otherwise
>>
>>10577601
nobody cares
>>
>>10577602
The people still waiting for refunds probably do. They’ve told the traders they can cancel but they can’t have refunds until the tables have been resold too.
>>
gonna finally lose all this stupid weight and cosplay for the first time in October lads
shit better be open by then
>>
>>10577632
That'd be outright illegal and reportable to trading standards. Do you have any evidence of this?
>>
>>10578204
Yup, I’ve seen the email that was sent to the traders and urged them to report, I’ve got a friend who has been waiting for a refund since last Wednesday too. Considering the refund drama they had last year I thought they’d have sorted themselves out by this year
>>
>>10578346
I have a friend who works closely with trading standards. Can you post a copy (redacted of any personal info obviously) and I'll ask them on their opinion about this
>>
>>10578349
>>
>>10578361
Uh what? How can they not have the money for refunds? They surely would have had put money aside for their venue deposit and paid it before opening ticket and table sales. So where's the money taken from the subsequent sales gone?

For that matter, where's the money gone from their fund-raising drives that have raised several thousand pounds from their loyal members? This all seems extremely fishy to me.
>>
>>10578361
Happy to take thousands in donations but can’t refund starving artists, how pathetic.
>>
>>10578368
They spend the ticket money on themselves as soon as it rolls in. The fundraiser money they even said they were going to use for YouTube videos and things.

If you watch their postponement video he even says that right now they would need to be ordering the wristbands etc but they don’t have the funds to do it.

Idk how he’s expecting to run next year on what will be the slowest year of sales out of the 3.

He best get selling that PS5 so he can get these people refunded. Can’t refund because they have no income but can buy a PS5
>>
>>10578375

This reminds me of Nemacon, and weren't Sunnycon the main instigators behind the demonisation of the organisers of Nemacon for not keeping charity money seperate?

You'd think they'd run a squeaky clean business since they've been throwing shit at any other place that so much as sneezes the wrong way.
>>
>>10578380
Yup, I’m pretty sure they even made a sly dig about NemaCon in a video a while back, probably a behind the weebs one about auctions or whatever
>>
>>10578380
If I recall correctly, wasn't that what basically killed Nemacon off?
>>
>>10578385
Yeah, it never ran again after that, the staff tried to relaunch it as OneCon but that only lasted 1 or 2 events
>>
>>10578375
To all intents and purposes they're admitting that the business has no cash and is effectively bankrupt. At what point does this inevitably explode in their faces?

Does anyone know if Sunnycon is actually a limited company or if it's under Tuckwell personally? If it's the later then seeing Sunnycon implode due to no money next year might be the least of his worries?
>>
>>10578389
No sign of it on companies house so I’m assuming it’s not a registered business. I’m sure he’s said previously they’re not making enough money to have to be registered or something along those lines.
>>
>>10578389

Looks like he should have stayed partnered with twitch and then his minions could have kept donating bits to him.

Nah, once he becomes a youtube star, Sunnycon will be rolling in the money and the "sky will be the limit on guests".

What I said in quotes was legit what Tuckwell said on one of his videos about himself on youtube. He doesn't seem to understand that to be a successful youtube star you actually have to be likeable. Just sad.
>>
>>10578814
Yeah, I remember when they got cancelled last year, he was on twitch saying he was going to have to get an actual job. About a week later it was suddenly ‘we’re putting everything into twitch and YouTube to make this happen!’ then he stepped down from being affiliate with twitch and then quit altogether after admitting 30min into a 3h stream that he doesn’t even want to stream games. If he can’t force himself to play a game he chose then what’s his chances of actually getting anywhere as an ‘influencer’?

To top it off they started that “forgotten footage series” then quit before that had to show how Liverpool really went, and started focusing on tiktok style mashes of cosplay photos they’re ripping from people’s profiles.

There was even drama on Twitter because they reposted someone’s video a few weeks back. Same person who stood up for people about the refunds last year.
>>

From experience it's much easier to pull a cos thot at the Fox or wherever the drinking is happening than swipe at Tinder. Also actually being good looking and having matching cosplays helps. Or just be a good looking Dante. That worked out well for me.

How does AL keep winning?
>>
>>10584362
al has to cancel way more cons than these 3 put together... claims they winning
>>
>>10584499
And let’s not forget the bluster of AL constantly suggesting their events are still running, then having to cancel only because the venue refuse to let them run. AL aren’t winning, they don’t give a shit about anything but a payday, they’d happily cram you ALconners in a room for £25 regardless of if any of you would get covid
>>
I doubt you can say anyone's winning during the middle of a pandemic - the only difference is who loses the most.

If the government roadmap goes ahead as planned, those who were going to run this year lose more. If it doesn't and another variant hits causing all of 2021 to be cancelled, then the likes of AL, MCM, Showmasters and Wales Comic Con lose more.

No one wins in this situation.
>>
I think toko is the only con that will run this summer. That's my call
>>
>>10584741
only way that can happen is if a) the government allow it to and any other event or b) they find a way to take everything outside. If you’ve ever been to toko, you’ll be aware they have a few buildings on site that they rent too. So maybe, but it’s not as easy as “it’s camping, it’s fine”

Just a little sad it moved from NEC personally, but I heard one of the reasons for moving is some companies weren't able to fly their people direct to Birmingham, so they were losing exhibitors, but everyone could fly to a London airport.

Seems the government plans to go ahead with events fully back end of June onward with their testing and passport plans for mass events. If they're trialling football matches in the next month and planning for the Euro 2020 finals to be near or at full capacity start of July, then we're definitely seeing cons this summer onward.
>>
Toko is the end of July, do you really think that they will allow events that soon after the Euro finals test has been completed? They need to wait at least 2 weeks to see if it had an impact

The events will happen. MCM is coming back. But a lot of people I know are crossing their arms saying they won't go to any cons until every last person in the country is vaccinated. Which is fine by me. More work, more money and more space to breathe. Maybe there will be less weirdos and cunts at MCM. Just imagine a Lewisless or Obayedless con.
>>
>>10590142
A win all around
>>
>>10590142
MCM is October, that’s way more realistic than July. If it blows up again it will be obvious by then and will likely postpone. Toko is so close after the Euro finals, which is meant to be the first test of a fully attended event (the earlier matches being restricted on numbers). Is it really going to happen?
>>
>>10590171
Tokonatsu is an event of less than a thousand and set outdoors. Given the number of similar festivals which are planned in August that are intended to be ten or twenty times larger, I'd say Toko is nailed on.

Probably will require vax proof or negative test though.

Realistic approach: The MCM's planned for Lon/Birm will be a utter sham and most likely, the lowest taking of tickets ever, causing it to dissolve and hope for the con surge in 2022 with ALL venues open.

The weirdos and cunts as you brand them keep events like MCM alive, cope on that.
