2013 Team Fortress 2 Live Action activity gathering at Anime Expo

Anyone think if this is a good idea? I actually want to try out to make like a arena style kind of fight. Or a Capture the Flag. Let's all open up to ideas and make it happen!

Considering no play-fighting is allowed per the weapons-check policy, I don't think this would be a good idea. We did something like this at the Valve gathering in '09, but I didn't really know better at the time.

There was discussion 2 years ago of a possible get-together after the convention for a few rounds of Laser Tag, however.

Well, that's where everyone has to discuss about this, how can we do this without bringing harm to others?

Well this might be of use:

For a Halloween event at my school I dressed up as BLU Soldier. I also had with me a RED Intel case. My friend randomly picked it up and ran. Then I realized what had happened. It WAS capture the flag. So, Me and my buddy, who was scout, pretended to shoot at him with our imaginary weapons and pretty much followed the rules of tag to catch my friend. Eventually we caught him and got the intel back.

so maybe two ppl can place the intel at a pre-decided location and ppl will have to pick up the intel from the floor or something and if they get tagged they have to return it. we can use a small area and play this for like 1 hour or whatever if it works.

Awesome! Then I'll bring along my BLU Soldier outfit. For the record, since this is very much like capture the flag/tag I doubt there will be a need for weapons. In fact I think I'll replace my rocket launcher with a small shovel so it doesn't get too much in the way. Not sure yet. But for photo purposes I guess the props and weapons are important.

Anyone got any ideas for a time and day?

I have other gatherings to go to in mind, so I hope it won't be at an inconvenient time either.

Lol me too but it all depends on the series posted for this same day (whichever day it maybe)

If we host it on the first two days,it may not be much due to the fact that the more "popular" series have gathering that day.(Naruto,Homestuck,Hetalia etcetc)But if we do it one of of the two later days,when the series aren't as "popular" we would definitely get more people.Such series that always have a day 3/4 or later day 2 gatherings are:

Vocaloid

Black butler

Soul eater

Durarara

Mass Effect

Value

K-On!

Highschool of the dead

And Ouran High host club.

Excellent point. The Valve gathering in itself is usually on Saturday and that has the most TF2 characters arrive. But having it on a Saturday might not be a good idea as you point out. I think to figure out the day we should wait until we can see when other gatherings are being held. Location might be something to consider too. So, it seems you and me will be hosting this?

Here are some rules/concepts I came up with:


For the sake of safety and the LA Convention center rules, we will most likely have to eliminate running. I was thinking:

1st we get 2 people to take the Intel to their designated spots. A RED for RED, a BLU for BLU (maybe engineers or heavies because that would make sense like in the game).

2. Have everyone from their team start at two other spots as 'respawn' points. On the 'Go' they all must start searching for where the intel is. This part could be simulated like a scavenger hunt with clues or something given out by characters who volunteer or extra helpers.

3. Players may tag the opponent or gently tap them on the shoulder to put them to a halt. When someone is tagged they must (I'm just making this all up as I go) freeze for a set amount of time (or should they have to walk back to respawn?) before they can proceed.

4. As for the weapons. They obviously can't be used cause of the convention rules, but they can't be left behind. Some people might be concerned with losing their props. And with good reason too.

That's all I got for now .-.

I guess I'll be BLU leader, since the only cosplay I have of tf2 is blue. I can make a fem scout with some other stuff I have, but it's also blue .-.
