How would you rate this year's con on a scale of 1-10?

Post by coolforever » Sat Mar 29, 2014 7:35 pm

Hard to believe it's been a week since the convention happened.

But I wanna know, how would you guys rate this year's convention overall on a scale of 1-10, with 1 being the worst and 10 being the best?

I'd honestly rate this year a 9 out of 10. Believe me, it was an AMAZING convention, and I was unbelievably happy with how everything went overall. Getting Patrick Seitz' autograph, running my panels with no issues, getting what i needed in the dealer's room, and getting lots of pictures taken of my cosplay made this one of the best AB's I've ever been to. However, I still think that I liked AB 2013 just a bit more :P

So how would you guys rate AB 2014 overall?

This is how I would rate the previous years:

Anime Boston 2006 (My first ever con!) 8 out of 10

Anime Boston 2007 - 8.5 out of 10

Anime Boston 2008 - 9 out of 10

Anime Boston 2009 - 7.5 out of 10

Anime Boston 2010 - 8.5 out of 10

Anime Boston 2011 - 7 out of 10

Anime Boston 2012 - 7.5 out of 10

Anime Boston 2013 - 9.5 out of 10

Anime Boston 2014 - 9 out of 10

What was wrong with the Marriott? I know they had a new elevator thing with touch screen, but I didn't see much of an issue. My only problem with it is, one of my costumes used gloves, and I couldn't activate the touch screen with my gloves on, so I used my elbow.

We spent more time waiting for the elevators this year than the past 2 years combined. And that's Including Sunday.
It was the One thing I hated at AB this year.
And Yes I know it isn't AB's fault.

I am happy to say I never had that problem with the elevators. Actually, I had it far better this year than I did the previous ones myself. PART OF THAT has to be because we didn't leave until Monday. Another part was we were on the higher floors, and there's more floors with 1-27 on one side than there is 1-5/27-38. We were on 31.

I think back in 2008 or 2009, it was so bad for us, we had seriously, a group of maybe 20 people follow us to use the stairwell, and we went down too far. My group actually led because one of my friends was fed up waiting. I forget who that was though. THAT year was my personal worst, haha.

I would give it an 8.5 out of 10. Overall it was very good, lots of great guests and panels. Some of the scheduling and room choices for the largest panels were a problem though, and there seemed to be more variety of photo-shoots at AB2013. Can't wait till next year!

Actually I published my review today of AB 2014! You can read it here http://www.writingfortoday.com/lifestyl ... 14-review/, I hope you like it. Feel free to leave comments on the page. I would love to hear from other attendees.
