While we're suggesting towns....why not Dallas, Memphis, Orlando, or St. Louis. All pretty centrally located....beer, barbeque, wings, women, and computers....you just can't beat it!!!Razz

San Jose CA, because the entire city has free wifi.

And it means i dont have to skip school because SJSU is 4 blocks away.

I like the idea of Atlanta, not just because I'm a few hours away either...good airport hotels mass transit to be had there....

Could do Indinapolis. Thats extremely well centered for a convention. Not to mention CCP was there last year for the launch of the card game.

I would recommend the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Lots of large venues, centrally located and large international airport (DFW).

I would second Dallas/Ft. Worth area. Anybody heard of QuakeCon? Yea, it's held there. If such a HUGE following for quake and Doom games can be held in these venues, then I am 100% sure the 100,000 + subscribers wouldn't have a problem finding a hotel room or place to stay around such a large area. Highways are well labeled and everything seems to be within 1 hour proximity. (Yes, thats close) I have personally attended several LAN parties in convention centers in Dallas/Ft. Worth area and I do not live there. If you're worried about the pubs or clubs, listen to the song, "God Blessed Texas" and when you enter one, you'll find out how. Laughing If you're worried about the way they talk there, I apologize but the "hick" accent cannot be helped. Additionally, the hospitality in Texas in general is made of win. Some of the nicest people on this Earth reside in Texas.

Dallas Texas would be great! I know there is a big Texas following and well... everything is bigger in Texas! (Plus we have a ton of breweries and wineries). Could have it in San Antonio and do a little remembering of the Alamo too.

Atlanta sounds good, especially since if it was held later in the year maybe the World of Darkness MMO team (who supposedly will be working primarily out of Atlanta) could bring some goodies / tidbits to the party.

Living close to Atlanta also means its a plus. I also agree that Vegas is too expensive. It used to be that the hotels etc were loss-leaders, but that has changed in the last decade because the casinos literally make more money off of hotels, food, and the numerous shows / shopping areas then they do off of the gambling. Atlanta has a massive airport (I think world's highest volume airport) and flying into and out of there is very cheap. Also has mass transit to get from the airport to about anywhere in town you want (MARTA subway).

Seeing as CCP's US offices are in Atlanta, their new partners White Wolf are in Atlanta, that Atlanta is very central to the most populated part of the US, that Atlanta is a cultured, international city, it's obvious that Atlanta would be the place to have it.

It has nothing to do with the fact that I live relavively close, lived there for years, and that I have a bunch of friends there ( free room and board! ).

doing it in atlanta at dragoncon gets my vote, would make an awesome addition to one of the bigest convention parties in the U.S.

I thought the idea centered on having an event at the CCP offices (or at least the nearest bar), not somewhere else in the U.S. I for one would love to see them in Indianapolis, but we got them for GenCon (you guys coming back next year? pleeeease?) and it makes more sense from a cultural standpoint to do it in Atlanta, because that is where the office is at.

Nothing in the response from Wrangler indicated that they wouldn't consider events elsewhere, but I'd consider it really odd to call for an even to meet CCP but hold it somewhere other than where their offices are. Not IN their offices, I'm sure they don't have the facilities, but at least somewhere close by.

Just my suggestion. Keep it to Atlanta for now, let them showcase their White Wolf side and facilities, give them the opportunity to present their North American operations as they have their Iceland operations. Then get them in talks about Vegas.

It would be awsome if they did sumthing in the states like the fanfest, Definatly putting GenCon on the calander though cause i generally go to Origins but if they are at GenCon i think those plans may change ;)

Yes, please host a west coast fan fest. Being from the west coast, it is hard enough to make it to the east coast, so Iceland is quite a stretch. Being in high school going places is difficult, but I'm sure I could try and make it to Vegas for a day or two =D

If not in Atlanta, then maybe Memphis, Dallas or St. Louis. I personally vote for Memphis, but that is because live there. Memphis has BBQ, Beale St., Elvis, a large international airport. Just don't do it in May. The Memphis in May festival is slightly gigantic.
