dsdacon 2018

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello there.

 

This year, we are going to try to get a lot of doom runners in one place to meet, hang out, fill all the coop tables, etc.  For convenience, and because it also makes sense, we will piggyback on the esa marathon (european speedrunner assembly).  The dates have been announced recently: July 20th - July 29th 2018.  The meetup is in Malmö, Sweden (on the coast, just east of Copenhagen).  I'm putting this out there early so that people have time to organize their schedules and/or finances, and I will update with more information once it's available (tickets, housing, etc).

 

Let me know if you're interested to give me an idea of how many people would come.  It's going to happen no matter what, but if there are enough of us then we can print some shirts and such as well.

 

--------

 

Update February 20th:

 

We're going to target the first weekend, Friday July 20th - Sunday July 22nd.  You can of course stay for as long as you want - esa is a speedrunning event that runs the whole week, and there surely will be plenty of people to meet and things to do.  But, since most people won't opt for this, try to schedule for those dates to maximize the number of people we have together at once.

 

Submissions for ESA open today and run until march 10th.  If you are interested in doing a run live on the stream, please consider submitting.

 

Here are general ESA info links:

For discussion related to dsdacon itself, I recommend joining the doom speedrunning discord: https://discord.gg/tbFX5P3 - even if you're not going to dsdacon, you should :^)

 

Please note: I have no official affiliation with ESA, I'm just trying to organize a meetup for doom, and a huge speedrunning event is a good place.

I watched the Scythe run. It was fun, but sadly it's very short.

 

@kraflabyou're the commentator on the left? I can't hear the roll call clearly...

Ya, I was the guy in red with the beard.

 

Lots of photos in the discord, the forums are dead 😃

 

I can post some though.

I forgot that there's also this fuzzy pic from Copenhagen taken shortly afterwards.

That fabulous battery you see on the table is position #3, I obviously couldn't resist.
