This picture is an example of their outdated content, and when I clicked on the galleries, I was even more appalled. The quality of the photos was just absolutely atrocious. Even the formatting and how the pictures were positioned inside the galleries was just so unprofessional. I saw such a lack of passion for the event, everything was just so poorly executed. We still really wanted to believe in them though, that the event had grown the way they said it had on their site.
We were expected to pay 20.00 per person for only a single day pass, which we were definitely not going to do. Unfortunately this is the worst experience we have had with a convention and we chose not to stick around, so the 4 hour round trip was treated as a nice drive to view the vast empty corn fields of Indiana. I guess it was nice to get out and go for a drive though. We just wish that our road trip was actually going to be worth something. Do not be fooled the way we were! Trust your gut when you visit their website. It has not evolved the way we had hoped, and even the information that is provided is entirely false!
For all of the right reasons, this convention is not for us, and we will not be returning to Pentacon again. Hopefully they will eventually see the need to either update or remove the website in it's entirety because it will only further confuse and mislead others who are looking for a joyous event of board gaming. Farewell Fort Wayne!
