Sorry guys you can spin it all you like. Pax is for video games. They have a mini component that is a tiny fraction of what is present at Gen Con, but they are not equivalent in any meaningful way. Moreover, at Gen Con you have a built in player base who are already interested. At PAX there are "new faces", but they will only be passively interested in your product. It's a bad marketing decision all the way around. Looking at the GC forums and elsewhere online, there are a lot of dissapointed people. So, you may be chasing $$$$ catering to the video game crowd, but you are just pissing off the industry and the people who have supported your company for many years. I'm not the only person who thinks this is highly insulting to your fans.
Wow, am I the only one that thinks this is a huge slap in the face to the entire tabletop gaming industry? Reaper Miniatures chooses a video game convention over the longest running tabletop gaming convention in the USA? My opinion of this company just went WAY down.
