Tron / Flynn Lives – Live Event – San Francisco, CA


Game: Tron / Flynn Lives
Type: Live Event
Location: Justin Herman Plaza, San Francisco, CA
Date: 8 pm, April 2, 2010
Status: Concluded

Encom International has issued a press release about an upcoming event by Executive Consultant Alan Bradley where he “will introduce the latest addition to the Encom International product library” at 8pm on April 2nd in Justin Herman Plaza in San Francisco.

There is speculation that you will need an Encom ID Badge in order to attend the event, but neither the Press Release nor the IGN interview with Alan Bradley talk about that. It could be that having a badge will move you to the front of the line in order to attend the event, but I would be surprised (and severely disappointed/upset at TPTB) if non-badge holding attendees were turned away completely. Especially since it can take 2-3 weeks to receive your badge after completing the game at Arcade Aid and the PR was issued just a few days ago. But you should be aware of the possibility in case you’re traveling to SF to attend the event.

Update: The badge question has been answered in another Flynn Lives forum thread.

Bring your Encom badges if you have them – if not – come anyway.

I think that there will be a VIP section for Encom employees (so badges needed for that), but the event is open to the general public.

So if you have a badge, bring it, especially if you want to get closer to the action. If you don’t have one, you’ll still be able to attend the Press Conference and the Flynn Lives meet-up prior.

Tron – Live Event – Philadelphia, Raleigh, Washington DC

Date: February 24, 2010
Status: Completed

We got a report in chat (#tron on irc.chat-solutions.org) from jsailor that he was the 6th person at the Atlanta drop. All he got was “just a chance to see a guy playing video poker in a “Flynn Lives” shirt telling me it had already been checked in.” This probably means that only the first person at each location will be given the phone and wallet “prize pack”. However, since I haven’t heard any reports from persons 2, 3, 4 or 5 about being denied at the location, I can’t say for sure. So please think twice about traveling long distances to attend the event since the odds are poor that you’ll end up with anything.

At Noon (Eastern Time), the Flynn Lives Zero Hour page updated with 3 new cities. So if you’re still waiting for information, check it out at the top of every hour. The other cities are slowly being checked off, although I have no idea if this means that there is nothing else for anyone to do their or not. I would hope that there would at least be some sort of “second prize” for people who got their late, but time will tell.

Well the countdown on Flynn Lives hit zero and allowed us to access a new page where they have a list of cities and a place for 66 Operatives to enter codes. Unfortunately, at Zero Hour, only 3 cities had information posted, so if you’re not in Chicago, Orlando or Paris, you’re going to have to keep checking back at the website and hope that you don’t miss the window for your city. Of course, you might be able to game the system a bit by checking to see where the best arcades are in your city and staking them out until the passwords are released.

Update: The Cities have been slowly checked off on the Zero Hour page. I have heard no information about if late comers will still be able to do anything there, so please be aware if you are traveling out of your way to check these sites out.

Over on the Flynn Lives website, there is a countdown that will hit zero on February 24th at 11am EST. Below the countdown there is a slowly revealing list of city names. Current speculation is that things will be happening in those cities when the countdown hits zero, but it’s far too early to tell at this point in time. If you live in or near one of those cities, keep the countdown page or back here for updates within the next 5 days.

 

Update: So the image has completely resolved and all of the cities have been revealed. The original list posted was pretty close to what it finished up to be (the two switches were Detroit -> Denver and Indianapolis -> Minneapolis). We still don’t know what is going to be going on in those cities or exactly where things will be happening, but hopefully an update is on its way so those people who are contemplating taking off work will know if they should or not.
