For some of us, it will at least only be 3 events/year.  As long as you only play Star Wars or non-Star Wars games it's only 1 Worlds/year after this year.

According to the email I got it's just Finals and Cut events that were cancelled since you will need to qualify for those.  They will be issuing generics for any tickets purchased for Finals or Cut events.

For some reason, players were able to register (and pay????) for the cuts.

Probably set up to hold space, I seem to remember them doing something similar for previous GenCons.  Last I had looked, nobody had actually paid for a spot in the Star Wars top cut, but AGoT and Conquest had a few.  I took that to mean that SWLCG had the smartest player base (well, us and Netrunner I guess).

So, Origins is still ran like it was back in 2000, when I first went as a child. I believe they use the same computers and technological infrastructure.
 
Wednesday is the first day of what looks to be a pretty big convention. There is a demand on hotels in the area that hasn't been seen in 15+ years during the Origins weekend.  Due to the factors of (1) bigger convention, (2) archaic technology, and (3) Origins disaster factor, I would show up early on Wednesday.


Told you all!
