    So anyone happen to get the scoop as to what was botched/fucked up this year at MPT? Don't get me wrong still had a blast viewing it but when they did the "Stop the movie" it felt really really short and out of place. Just curious b/c in years past those skits are what makes the event so awesome.

    Yes, I agree... Something strange happened this year with the MPT skit. I wonder what happened there...

    Hopefully next year will be better. That and the internet going down for an entire day really didn't help.

    I'm not sure if you guys have watched their skits on youtube but this was basically their normal T2 skit with only a few changes/additions for Quakecon.

    I'll tell you what was off...They didn't use Harley to the extent of his abilities...they should have let him play a better part!

    I don't think it was messed up at all. The lack of binge drinking while running around naked. Also with much smaller attendance, I don't think the energy level could have been nearly as high. The lack of speaking parts for the audience participation. Hopefully next year Master Pancake can plan a roast a VIP in the stop the movie portion that fulfills all Quakecon fantasies. Maybe Willow and have Pete Hines as Madmartigan.

    It did certainly feel off, but that could be based on what they had for the movie as theBrayn says. In the case of T2 their jokes were amazing, while the skit left some to be desired. That being said - Master Pancake never disappoints. I laughed my ass off and left quite inebriated, so they did their job well and I can't really complain.

    I missed having the forums meeting right after MPT. I was entirely too coherent for that.

    I didn't drink as much as usual for MPT. I think the hype of maybe winning $10k distracted me? I wouldn't have had anything to drink if it weren't for Kamakazi bringing me some Jose Cuervo. I mixed it with a Bawls I traded for an MPT ticket on discord and made Jose's Bawls. (Patent pending :p)

    I agree though. Movie was great, stop the movie skit was... off. But it does seem it just sucks normally for this movie. :shrug:

    My only complaint was it being on Saturday night. I normally leave the con on Saturdays to avoid the crowds of people checking out. And if I have been drinking excessively the night before check out, and check out is at like 11am, I'm going to have a bad time. Either way though MPT killed it with T2. IMO it was way better than the 50 Shades mock.

    So many people leave Saturday night that Sunday morning checkout is a breeze. I think I had to wait all of 2 minutes before someone could scan me out.

    That's really my only big problem with it. Especially having to be up at 8am to start helping teardown was...painful. I think Friday is best for MPT.

    I thought teardown didn't start until noon when the BYOC officially closed...

    There's lots of other stuff to teardown other than BYOC.

    Yeah, teardown started before noon for just about everything else.

    The ESL stuff was nearly down by 5am. There was trash everywhere.

    I completely agree that this movie was way better. I mean they are a pretty humorous crew but there's only so much you can do when the movie sucks something awful to begin with...I think for an environment like QuakeCon they should stick to action and Sci-Fi. Still though...you were top notch last year...I was disappointed they didn't put you in any fantastically awkward speaking roles this year. :p

    Also...lol AT&T. That phrase brought people together so much better than one could ever expect. The people around me were like 'yeah, this one time they did this'...'oh no kidding right, I once had this happen when I used them', 'oh word? remember that time they provided internet to a few thousand gaming nerds and then took it away for hours'.

    Every year there are things I'd change...but every year I come away with a much longer list of things I enjoyed.
