The Big Anarchy Online 10 Anniversary Gathering Official Thread & Information Station!!

Gathering Dates: June 24th - 25th
Location: Montreal, Quebec, Canada - Funcom Offices (Google Maps link)


Hey guys! As you all know June 27th, 2011 is quickly approaching and that can only mean one thing - Our 10th anniversary! We're not going to let a milestone like that go unnoticed, and to commemorate the occasion we're going to have a proper party up here in Montreal; the best part? All of you are invited! Come up, meet the team in a Q&A session, get a tour of our offices (maybe, depending), and then spend a night on the town in Montreal with us as we celebrate 10 years of Anarchy Online!

EDIT: REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED!!! I want to thank everyone for expressing interest in the gathering and event, and we look forward to seeing those who have registered on Friday and Saturday. =D

EDIT: We want to remind everyone to follow Anarchy Online on Twitter for exclusive pictures and tweets live from the gathering events on both the 24th and the 25th! Just add @funcom_anarchy to your Twitter feed, or visit us at the following link: http://twitter.com/#!/funcom_anarchy

EDIT EDIT: We will also use Twitter Hash #AO10Year during the update that way EVERYONE can join in on the Twitter Madness! On top of that, you can follow Famine's Log for more details on what's going down in Canada!

Could you possibly consider a competition or whatever for some t-shirts for those not attending.. I've played AO 8 years and with no possibility to attend a meeting, I still would go a long way for a t-shirt (but gf and kids will however not let me sacrifice my vacation).

This.

And I really wish I could go. But the 2k dollar for plane tickets is prohibitive. :x WTB a T-Shirt!

I'd love to RSVP, but without a bit more info, dropping 2K to fly to another country (even if it is Canada) is a bit too much without some idea of what I'd be doing. I mean the Q&A will be video taped by someone, so I will not miss that... maybe a tour... hmmm... Night on the town sound interesting... but exactly what does that meet, couple beers at the local bowling alley? Dancing (with a 70-90% male only attendance)? Burger at Micky D's?

All seems a bit to fuzzy of a plan to drop 2k to attend. I don't want to RSVP and then find out its 30 minutes in an over crowed room with Means and then you ditch us and sneak home and we are left in a city in a strange foreign country where we don't speak either of the languages. (French or Canadian)... well, I'm original from Wisconsin, so I can fake Canadian.... but still!

Honestly, we're still nailing down exact details here ourselves - A lot of people at FC (and important ones at that XD) really want to make sure this turns out to be a great celebration (I mean seriously, 10 years - You can't let that pass by without a party), but a lot of what we *plan* is going to depend on the number of RSVPs we receive. The more people we have signed up closer to decision making time, the more likely it is we'll be a bit more grandiose.

As for this, though, I can promise you nothing that dire is going to happen. When we did the Oslo gathering last year we had three weeks from announcement to party and everyone who showed up seemed like they had a blast - It was a great time, and I speak for the team when I say we loved having everyone over. So no matter what, we're not going to leave you guys by the side of the road - I'm due for a good and proper throwdown and I aim to have one. XD

Well.... I did watch the video from the 9th anniversary party and I think the count of girls was zero... perhaps there may have been one, but I did get the impression that there were NONE! So, going by that, there is an ARMY of GIRLS, they however are all 'internet' girls. (Meaning middle aged men)

So, perhaps there will be actual women at the event, but I seriously doubt they will show up in great numbers. I stand by my estimate.

That sounds good... I'm not doing the naked scan for a crappy time!

That, I think is the key statement. When would "decision making time" be?

We weren't supposed to receive any sort of response to the RSVP mail, right? I send an email a couple of weeks back and haven't heard anything, so just checking.

Ok, lets say that we do want to attend, what part of Montreal is this thing likely to be held near? I'm looking at hotel choices and there are a TON, but I just don't have a single clue as to what part of town would be good.

Also, are they any suggestions of what part of town would be good/bad?
