I won't bring computer or anything big just essentials to survive like sängkläder and kalsonger. Visiting elmans before sounds max. I am on vacation the entire week so can go earlier to visit elmans.

Dayum Honza, would be sick if you came! I haven't heard anything about there not being any room left, but I don't think nom has put together a list yet. Anyway, I'm sure it won't be a problem, especially as it's still quite early :)

See you soon hopefully! :beer:

Pretty much everyone apart from bene is bringing a PC or a laptop :D over there it's obviously far-from-optimal conditions for hoyling (tight space, lots of gak everywhere, lots of people), so wouldn't worry too much about the PC. I normally play on a PC on 24" with a bigass keyboard, but at FEM played on a 15.6" laptop with teh laptop keyboard and was oke, got used to it in a day :) some ppl bring a laptop+keyboard.

And imo just go for the tickets! I've already booked mine some time ago :D although I'll have to rebook tomorrow, cuz they postponed it ;/ gonna be at teh Helsinki airport on Friday 13.07 at lajk 10:30am, train to FEM leaves at 12pm :)

Pawq: So train to Vammala leaves 1½ hours after you've landed? Shouldn't be a problem. No need to go to Helsinki centre. All trains to Vammala stop at Tikkurila train station about 15mins after they've left from Helsinki, and it's a 8 mins train ride from Airport to Tikkurila

Oh yes, Antti :D

Ismo: yea I took the train back to the airport last year =) the train to tikkurila from the airport leaves 1.5h after landing, so just boring waiting time instead of cool femming time. But could've been worse I guess =)

edit: can go to tikkurila sooner ofc but that's the one that vr.fi shows matched with trains to tampere & vammala so I guess no earlier match or sth.

Just rebooked flights, cuz the original one to Turku got postponed and I'd get to the cabin ridiculously late :(

Here's the updated schedule, in case anyone wants to tag along, or more likely - meet up at the airport and travel on together :beer:

Wow this is big. Seems that once again FEM is going to be even better than year before. The only problem would be the sleeping space but it should be ok if many bring tents. But I don't know if those coming with aeroplanes should bother with that. Also maybe we can rent the extra sauna cabin for the weekend like in the 1st year. I recall cabinlady has usually asked around 50€/night but you'll never know, let's see.

Idé: documenting some interesting events in more pro way than before.

Now all the videos are pretty much random mongoing which isn't very interesting after the years. While doing the article, I've noticed that there are only a few videos showing anything interesting like TorInge, Zweq and Jalli playing. Well, I haven't checked all milloin FEM14-17 videos so if someone did, please recommend.

I would like to see how Ramone makes a level or Zweq plays SL or Markku dodging, Zero piping and so on. Maybe the first levels of Beer Battle could be included but only the first. And of course some introductory to the cottage. Can be livestreamed too?

If "The Four Pro" competition can be set, that one too. The four players should be selected by some objective measure (or jury = nom) so that we can reproduce it next years. It's always difficult to decide who is the first not in.

Maybe there could be "a video day" when the video is recording all day long so it would become normal and all the interesting events could be recorded during the same day.

Needed: tripod, pro camera, enough memory, volunteer to cut and edit.
Bonus: two commentators who tease only each others and on permit the player(s). Orcc and Ramone?

1 h tt could be recorded as well in a way where the best players (adi, Zweq etc) sit next to each others. Maybe someone manages to get under 40 mins. The current best recorded is adi's 40:30.

What else?

I'm not master of any skills required in this project but I've seen people who are. I can help of course where possible. I hope to hear a comment from insguy if this sounds realistic at all?
It would be mega welcomed for anyone to document stuff in any way. I always enjoyed reading Abula's pedantic old-school FEM reports.

I have an idea of a new kind of contest: 24h level pack:
- I will be making couple of (good?) levels and releasing them at FEM.
- I will give you 24 hours time to play them.
- The player with best total time will win.
- There will be some prizes too.

So it will be like TT battle, but not a "battle" in the sense that it will last for 24 hours.

Would there be interest in this kind of competition?

I think I can be in FEM from saturday until wednesday. I think this contest could be arranged from sunday to monday or from monday to tuesday. Or what do you think? Do you have a schedule already somewhere?

Sure, all competitions are nice! There actually was something like this but with a little bit longer battle time than 24h for the HALF packs. It was liked particularly because the HALF levels were a big deal. It was intended as a background event. If I remember correctly, some people hoyled it really much and later continued playing HALFs after FEM and some did not really play it after the first day. So in this kind of event I might expect very polarized efforts by players but I don't know if it is a bad thing. It might be a good idea if it was not just a TT because then it will be sensible to try to get the best time in just a single level and hence contribute with a smaller effort.

The Nice pack also had a similar vibe as a long-term FEM pack, but obv with very different targets. Limiting it to the whole FEM, rather than particular 24h, could be an alternative =)

Good point. There could be some special levels where I would give prize to the best player. I'll think about it

Good idea otherwise, but I would like to be there giving the prizes and seeing the results. I'm afraid I can't be there whole time...
