I would not worry. If demand is very high, we have plans to add another running of this "V1" event in September. Please do not stress. Sorry.

No need to be sorry! Just so excited to play and hope we all get a chance.

I hope we don't see people getting locked out due to treasure farming. I expect at least this first weekend there will be less rushing to purchase farming tickets so people don't get locked out.

I know I'm cutting my standard purchases in half as there's only one unique run this time.

Yeah, I think I'm going to just buy a ticket to each run for myself and son so he can enjoy his first run. We are super pumped for this.

This looks super exciting. I generally play with whoever else has tickets, but I worry a little bit about communication with the golem in a group of random people.

FAQ has some good points about it, though, so I'm hopeful.

My concern is less about communication with the golem, since there appears to be a point person, and more about communication within the group. 10 people talking over each other in a physical room is tough. On a zoom call, it can be even worse, and then you add in people who don't understand how the mute button works.

I'm not sure if Zoom supports "breakout groups" or some such if you need to divide tasks between smaller portions of the group.

I suspect that the limitation of having 1 golem (camera+set of hands) has been taken into account in the puzzle design so hopefully there shouldn't be a need for the group to split up. Reality is that the set of things possible with this sort of event are somewhat different than what can be possible in physical TD.

66 dollars each. That also covers shipping you your SWAG after.

I was on the first Patron run and AFAIK those in that party don't normally run together. YMMV, but the only talking over / contention that came up (that i noticed) was in one puzzle room for like 10 seconds and the group self-righted to talking about the tasks and in what order.

Like anything it depends on who is in there, but I wouldn't worry yourself into not playing.

Thanks! I was playing regardless, but I've attended a few group zoom gatherings over the past few months where people couldn't find "mute" to save their souls. I'd say I got to listen to some fun side conversations, but it all just kind of garbled.

I am more sad as a volunteer that I won't be able to volunteer at all this year, all this covid crap sapped my PTO so I would like to see if I could volunteer outside of normal shifts or part time or one day volunteering near the end but glad I still get some runs in with friends.
