They're seen as "the enemy" here, so you won't see many posts.
Turnout was pretty good last year.
This time should be at least as good.
Decide on your masters, people, for you cannot serve both. Either be an anime con or be a 3-day frat party. (I'm Done with ACen.)

I really would like to go, seeing that Johnny Yong Bosch will be present there, but 4th of July weekend is always a busy time. Thankfully, ACen is in between Mother's Day and Memorial day.

Wouldn't any other con be considered "The Enemy" i've read some comments form people that have been there
like "Getting banned for no real reason" and another that said they don't take credit cards to pay for
your badge (weird)

I was there this year for all three days, though I had to drive up there each day. Had fun. Definitely enjoyed teh Team Four Star panels. Might go next year if I have the money.

That kind of mentality doesn't make much sense to me. It's a smaller con (and only started up a few years ago) with attendance numbers that are less than ACen, why would you consider them an enemy?

Never heard anything about people getting kicked out for no reason (then again, I try not to create a ruckus). I CAN confirm that they don't take credit/debit cards, though, at least not by themselves: they use Paypal, and IIRC you can use a card to pay through that.
