Do anime fans get into fights at the convention?

I say this because I went to the men's bathroom at Anime Expo and some of the bathroom doors look busted open. I'm wondering if the fight started because of the asinine sub v. dub debate. But I'm being speculative as to why the fight started in the first place.

I killed a man at a convention just to watch him die.

Not got a chance against me! :lol:

Seriously? Ever thought that some people are morons who like to just break stuff for the sake of breaking it? Or people get into tussles over nothing, especially the younger con goers? I was at one convention where there were some teenagers who kind of were using it as an excuse to behave however they like. I was going to take my make-up off before I left but couldn't because of some childish spat that ended in some kid having to be restrained. All in the dressing room. It's not common and it's so stupid.

Yeah, it's more likely someone broke something just for the sake of breaking it than an actual fight happening. Yes, there can be disagreements, but an actual fight at a con is downright mythical.

Yea same, I've been going to conventions for 10+ years and it's just my personal experience but I've NEVER seen a fight. Passed by an occasional shipping war back in the day, but even then it was just in good humor and no fists were flying O_O

I leave countless victims in my wake every con.

No but actually in ten years of going to conventions I've never seen anyone throw down. It would probably be a sight to see though.

Yeah I don't know if I'd say this is necessarily common with cons but it does happen. Any time you get a large group of hyped-up people together the odds of someone getting overly excited and causing problems increase. I've never really run into it in-person at any of the cons I've been to, but there are a few infamous instances of it at various anime cons, and it happens in other fandoms, too. Rainfurrest 2015 (see my sig) was a really infamous example of it. Again nothing I actually saw in-person but the reports on it after the fact were practically horrifying.

That sort of behavior doesn't usually go unpunished though. It makes event insurance more expensive for the event runners, can bring a lot of bad press or mar the reputation of that con, and may force them to move event locations or (in Rainfurrest's case) cancel future events entirely.

^My friend was there and he told me that it was way worse than the widely reported stuff like the hot tub clogged with towels and so on. Apparently there's one fetishy segment of the community which caused their share of literal shit shows.

I've heard reports from multiple cons about damage caused by birdbrained congoers who think that "con" is apparently short for "CONsequence free" or "act like a rioting CONvict".
I hate that kind of thing, because it pretty well ruins things for the rest of us- increased badge costs, or even venues kicking the con out, or refusing to host it. In Rainfurrest's case not only did they lose their home, but none of the hotels in the area would have them. They looked for hotels as far away as Spokane, Washington, but none would touch them with a ten foot pole, their bad reputation had spread.

Probably my favorite thing about this thread aside from anime expo being almost a year ago is that immediately the question is "did weabus fight over weabu things" as if the reasons for fights in restrooms are ever anything other than "I am an asshole and I wanted to fuck with someone while they were vulnerable and that person picked the wrong time to use the restroom" or "I have beef with a particular person over something related to dating or money and happened to run into them."
