Heyo Guys!

http://i.imgur.com/VZsA4Da.jpg

All of you remember our last years trip to GamesCOM...or at least the video we made there ;-)
I know Frank doesn't have much time this year, so no official trip can be organized.
But that doesn't mean there is no trip at all!
I will be at GamesCOM on Friday the 15th and Saturday the 16th of August.

Anyone else interested in meeting up there?
Some place to sleep and some cars to drive should be possible to organize.

Cya, pyran

Hi Foks 13-06-2014

Pariz-One...dont worry me too some days :twisted:
I will do everything i can to go this year...missed out too much already.
If i can phisically handle it i will be there right now i cant say i can make it.
My lungs are toast...20% of what it should be compared to an average joe...astma/C.O.P.D is messing me up.
Working on better health if that is sorted enough by then i will attend for sure. (depending on my healt and what other members will do i will attend none, 1, 2 maybe 3 days)
In case i will attend friday and saturday, i will be leaving sunday due to hangover/to tired to travel ;-) so 2 nights of hotel for me in that case.
Regarding the whole event i am thinking dinner on friday night and clubbing saterday night for those interested.
And can someone try to contact the same hotel as last year once over time when we now a minimal count of people attending.
(please edit/post what days you will be there and how regarding transportation)
So that way we might be able to reserve a couple of rooms with 2 beds so we can all spend the night at the same hotel.
And maybe even get a sweet deal if we book several rooms at once. (better soon then sorry, ofcourse as soon as we got a count of people attending and on what days)
(If needed i am willing to pay up to 30€ reservation fee for the room(s), I hope others will follow up on that so thats sorted out.
Vercetti can we use the OG bank account for reservation and room expences ect.?, or should a staff/trusted member thats attending cover that?
Folks keep in mind that hotels will be fully booked there in no time!
(Frank) Is there anything else we should keep in mind regarding last years hotel? (things like do they overbook rooms?)
And is there someone in the community that can try and arrange extra's/goodies for a couple bucks like last year that whould be awsome! (from what i heared this year 10+ will attend so far)
If i attend i will try my best to arrange a car to get there.(keep in mind for me it's still a maybe if i will be there)
Keep an eye on this post i will edit/update it over time with info regarding gamescom related info

De-Pizzabezorger....start delivering...on a bike if you have too, deliver those pizza's/newspapers game less and attend the event!
Most likely you can split the gas bill with someone thats attending me if i will be there....No BS... ;-D we will try to get you there ;-D, The more people the better.
I think that covers most of it for now.
BTW, i voted for both days since thats my target.

Greetings, like last year i hope te see a sh*tload of usefull/positive replies again..Jimmy ;-D

I suggest you book it yourself, that's the easiest.

Folks keep in mind that hotels will be fully booked there in no time!
Probably already are ;-) Last year we booked in January/February

(Frank) Is there anything else we should keep in mind regarding last years hotel? (things like do they overbook rooms?)
Not really. But besides the hotel, contact Andreas Koch for access to the EA community lounge.

And is there someone in the community that can try and arrange extra's/goodies for a couple bucks like last year that whould be awsome! (from what i heared this year 10+ will attend so far)
10+ already? Good to hear. Well, we do have the webshop where you can order (personalised) goodies.

So just lets make a short list of the guys driving to gamescom:

Staying in Hotel
pyran + 1 (Room 1) - 1 or 2 nights
jimmydijkstra (Room 2) - 2 nights

Hi Folks ┬* ┬* ┬* ┬* ┬* ┬* ┬* ┬* ┬* ┬* Update's about Hotel/Transportation will be updated on my first post.

Indeed i got some update's my sinceer apoligy' s for that i am late...I had a rough and busy couple of weeks.
Also while gathering serveral details regarding Gamescom, Hotel, car rental...my system but most of all my browser crashed a couple times therefore a had to re-write the post 4 times after witch i eventually gave up and needed a brake.

Anyways indeed i had contact with Andreas Koch about Gamescom and the EA community lounge.
Yes we have been accepted access to the community lounge!
I can simply give him the names + date's of the members attending so he can list us all.

-=Info/details about members/people attending in a PM before 10th of july please=-
PS; I agreed that i would let Andreas Koch know before the 15th of july who would attend and when.

If you are attending what i need in a PM on the forum for the community lounge/Whatsapp/Hotel is:
1. ┬*Date's (time's) you will/expect-to be there Arrivall/Departure.
2. ┬*Real Names.
2. ┬*Gaming Nicknames (in case of P4F your main soldiername/TS-forum name)
3. ┬*An email address.
4. ┬*For the ones that dont mind also a mobile phone number. (I took the liberty to create a whatsapp group for Gamescom)


Also since there where some issues regarding Booking hotels i did some research
At booking.com i found a hotel with 5 rooms for 10 adults for a grand total of: 807,50=161,,50 per room for 2 nights.
It is in Dormhagen 18.3KM from cologne...Booking.com hotel website page quote;

Situated only 50 metres from DormagenÔÇÖs pedestrian area, this 3-star hotel boasts excellent transport connections and easy access to the trade fair cities of Cologne and D├╝sseldorf.
The Hotel K├Âlner Hof offers cosy rooms in the immediate vicinity of the colourful shops and restaurants of DormagenÔÇÖs town centre.
The A57 motorway, railway station and airport are just a few minutes away. The sights and business opportunities of Cologne and D├╝sseldorf are within equally comfortable reach.
Free parking is available directly on the property.
I can book all rooms if all is right at no expence thats IF i have the details of everyone.

To me it seems like the perfect place to stay.....-=or ┬*not what a fail little to cosy!!=-
Can someone look for a hotel?, i seem to keep failing....will keep looking tho.

Also i will be renting/hiring a car to get there IF i can find at least 2 people that need a ride.
The 4th or 5th seath will most likely be taken by a friend and neighbour of mine.
Also within lets say about 100KM from 's-Hertogenbosch/Den Bosch
The bill for the car will be devided by the number of people driving with me...me included, any extra km's from/to hotel/train/airport and gamescom the gasbill will be split by the ones driving along.
The expected bill grand total will be between 200 and 480 depending on the number of people driving along.
I counted on 3 to 5 people me included...dont mind to hire van for 7+ but then the average price p.p. would be higher.

Thats it for now/so far, Hoping i have informed you guys enough.
Again my apoligy's for the late post/update
Friendly Greetings, Jimmy ;-D

SkinnyG
2014-06-25, 20:32
Hey Jimmy,

Looking good!

Maybe you should contact that hotel directly for info.
My experience is that if you skip booking.com but book with the hotel itself, you can probably get a better rate.

For the rest:

Well arranged with Andreas!

i can stay 2 days, give jimdijkstra an pm with information about you and your number for the whatsapp group so we can take care of an hotel, and dont leave it at us but show your love for gamescom xD

JimDijkstra86NL
2014-06-28, 16:16
Yes...Yes...YES!!, we would love to have you there that would be awsome!!!

Guys really, If you are attending what I need in a PM on the forum for the community lounge/WhatsApp/Hotel is:
No offence but no details/PM means no EA community lounge.(I really need everyone's details!)
Why a PM?, so i dont lose it!..wanna make sure everyone gets inthere

I know i am pritty much "part of the OG furniture" here but I dont know you all that well that I got whats required.

1. ┬*Date's and time's you will be there from arrival to Departure.(for possible time slots we might get)
2. ┬*Real Names. (full name)
2. ┬*Gaming Nicknames (in case of P4F your main soldier name/TS-forum name)
3. ┬*An email address.
4. ┬*For the ones that don't mind also a mobile phone number. (I took the liberty to create a WhatsApp group for Gamescom)
5. Let eachother know in a post what kind of transportation you will use as well."for travel buddy's"(I am still looking for someone to travel with, i will be renting a small car)

And keep looking for a hotel!
I keep failing all the way, the one I found is a hotel with 5 rooms each room one bed FAIL :roll: ...little too snug for my taste.
I will also keep looking for one so we can hopefully travel as a group.

I was also thinking same deal as last year?
Friday evening checking in @ hotel then Dinner, saturday wondering around @ gomescom and the evening clubbing?
If you will join it, let us know/post it.

Caveman
2014-06-29, 08:25

2014-07-23, 13:26
Hi Folks

First of all...AWSOME that so many people will attend Gamescom 2014! (16 maybe 17 so far)
I was informed that the lineup cannot yet be revealed, at least last time i talked/chatted with the EA community manager a while ago.
Tho last year they released the lineup the week before gamescom if i am not mistaking.

The community lounge; Vercetti and i had contact with the community manager about this...
Everyone that signed up is on the list for the community lounge.
After my mail Vercetti resubmitted an updated list and as far as i can see everyone is on it.
Darkvoo you indeed aren't on the list yet noticed your PM to me and i will update the list and forward it to the community manager and Vercetti.

This is the list of people for the EA community lounge @ Gamescom 2014 so far;

I have asked lisa if she could arrange tickets for saturday pitty enough she was not able to arrange the tickets for saturday.
They where sold out @ saturn in kiel.
Just maybe they are available at a local saturnstore if so buy 4 of them for us.
If you wont be able we will try to get tickets on site @ box office.
On site they will sell tickets for saturday afternoon.
There will most likely be a long waiting line there and they can only be used for 2 pm and later.

*[RTP]Claudio_aKa_Du0 (Hotel 3 - Room 1) Thursday late/Friday early in morning untill Monday 3 nights (Will come by plane and with public transportation)"Italy"


Hello guys, thanks for have moved this post ;)

Anyway, there is a little mistake: as suggested, I booked the Kolner hof hotel (so, hotel 1)...
The "hotel 3" was an hotel I was suggesting..but, because everyone was going the the "Kolner hof", I booked it too.
I will arrive at the Dusseldorf airport at 12:55 (I hadn't find an earlier departure -.-")... so probably we will meet at the "ea community lounge" at 15:00 and even if my playslot was at 14:00 there would be no problem because I contacted Andreas Koch and he said that I can even join the lounge even if i'm late. (as I arrive, I'll let you know).
About the tickets: as some of you I only have the friday's and sunday's tickets... not so bad, saturday we can even visit cologne !!

About the nights programs: I totally agree with you jim :D

If you want add me on fb so that we will recognize each other easily as we meet there: I am Claudio Longo...

See you tomorrow !!!! :D
