I’ll do the same when flights from Austin aren’t $450.
This. Why the hell is it so expensive to fly to Virginia?
Because no one flies to ROA. The airport is so small that their website brags about their flight numbers being in the forties:
Roanoke-Blacksburg Regional Airport offers more than 40 scheduled flights daily, providing nonstop service from Roanoke, Virginia to eight major cities.
Compare to my local airport, whose site brags about housing 26 airlines flying to five continents.
It's looking like the best way to go will be to fly somewhere cheaper nearby and hopefully carpool with some locals. Google Flights is recommending I save 60% and fly to LYH 42 miles away.
The big question I have is why this event needs 13 rounds.
If there are only 150 players, do we really need two more rounds than Eternal Weekend's NA Vintage Champ last year? That seems like overkill.
More Vintage == More better
Overkill is the best kind of kill.
@sodoyouwearacape I don't think SCG does events this big without coverage. They're promoting it daily in the site. The banner in the home page with the Twitch logo makes me believe streaming is certain
EDIT: actually I just clicked the banner and it took me to the event's page. There's only going to be coverage for the Vintage Top8
@hierarchnoble said in StarCityGames Power 9 Vintage Tournament - 6/8-6/10:
I guess I'll be playing in my first non-proxy Vintage event since 2010.
Someone just upvoted this. To that person, sorry, but I couldn't secure the time or cards for this.
@qq I'm happy for the people who showed, since it seems like a great chance to win some power, but I'm happy with their turnout being what it was. If the NYSE Open, in any form (as I'm not moving off June), was going to happen ever again, this event had to have bad turnout. It looks like that has happened. I would have greatly appreciated the professional courtesy of some contact before they just announced this, but they're the 800 lb gorilla in the room and they do what they want.
