    Gamescon 2017 Giveaways This Year?

    Greetings Commanders,

    Has FDev released any info about this week's Gamescon as far as streams/prizes go? I know about the community meet up, but last year they had a planet naming contest and paint job giveaways. Anyone hear anything?

    Thanks!

    Nothing I've seen except that they aren't there with a stand this year just the community meet. I imagine there will be a few bits and bobs around though.

    Probably best putting the question in that thread too.

    Well according to the Gamescom directory, they do have a stand: http://www.gamescom.de/gamescom/auss...art%22%3A20%7D

    I was kinda hoping for a bit of info before their own Expo,but oh well.

    Oh, I stand very much corrected then, maybe I got the wrong end of the stick... Who knows.

    There's no public event stand this year. Halle 2.2 would be the business side of things, so meeting with partners and folks we've worked with in the past, and such like this. There's no booth on the public areas like last year. We have a community meet-up but this won't be streamed, and isn't directly related to gamescom itself - it will not be at the Kolnmesse. There aren't any streams from gamescom this year as we're focusing heavily on Frontier Expo (FX), so there's not a giveaway!

    However, there'll be loads of news and info coming from FX, where we'll also be livestreaming the keynote speeches and info reveals. Whether there'll be any giveaways I can't confirm at this time, since the format of these streams will be a little different to how we normally do things. Stay tuned toward the end of the year as there may be more, though.

    Kinda disappointed. Missed the opportunity to sign up for the meet, and now I've got to read there won't be anything else for us fans at all. I guess there's no way to get into the community meet now last second, is there? :/
