Game News: Pokemon Go Fest a TOTAL DISASTER

This weekend thousands of Pokemon Go superfans traveled to Chicago to be the first in the world to catch legendary pokemon during Niantic's official Pokemon Go Fest. Unfortunately, EVERYTHING went wrong. Does it join the ranks of Fyre Festival? DashCon? Well, there's no ball pit...

    I went to Pokemon Go fest, and it was atrocious. I had entered the event after waiting in a 2 and a half hour long line, to be greeted by the chanting "We can't play".


    It started at 10am, and by 3:30 a presenter had said that 92% of attendees had successfully authenticated their arrival to unlock the events festivities in-game. They make it sound nice, but 8% of 20,000 is 1,600. 1,600 people couldn't even scan their QR code they got when they walked through the gate.

    Love Mica's dress! The real news to me is that people still play Pokemon GO. Makes sense that those who do exhibit SJW-type behavior, though.

    I wonder how much money Niantic lost on that event.

    Also, I know this has nothing to do with the video but Ashley and Mica look gorgeous and I want to see Mica's whole outfit!!

    On the other hand Pokémon Go seems to be more active than it has been since the launch of gen 2. My home town of 5000 people had large 20+ groups of people crossing town defeating legendary raids as they appeared. Got me a Lugia today.

    Does anyone else hear someone talking on the other side of the wall?
