Didn't care for it. First time I can say that. It was so absolutely full and so absolutely disorganized and mismanaged that I spent half the time checking off my list of other things I've wanted to see in Baltimore so I never have to return.
I watched old videos, from 2013 and 2015, and the energy and enthusiasm was totally different. Everything was so fresh and new. This year people seemed listless and mechanical, like they were there because this is the last con and they have to be there because it's there. Only a handful of people seemed really into it to me, and with the past few seasons of the show not interesting me at all I just couldn't get into the spirit of things.
The whole atmosphere of the convention seemed different too. The powers that be wanted to take it in a different direction or something, away from what had always worked and into some strange territory that just seemed off to me. It's just the little things, I guess, I can't say for certain any one thing, it just seemed like death by a thousand cuts.
