Don't worry the hotel will change.
Does your sister work at a different hotel now?
She does. I am trying to figure out which one it is.
I heard it changes nightly

Casey... really?

If you're going to make those jokes, at least do it to my mother, not my sister.

Sorry dude, couldn't resist. Certainly didn't mean anything personal by it. I didn't even know you had a sister.

Reading Terminal Market. That was it.

Too bad the hotel was apparently rude.

The NJ train is bunk btw. Can't buy tickets there at the station, can't use a CC on board.

A SWCCG 4-7 day cruise would be sweet. Families could even come.

Was the ticket machine broken? I've had no issue getting tickets in New Brunswick.

I had to go some very far away place to get tickets. There was no ticket machine down at the tracks or anything.

There’s also a couple machines on the platform. Unless you’re talking about at the airport where you’re supposed to buy in the terminal before you get on the monorail?

Yes, at the airport to the event. Places to buy tickets is stupid far from the tracks, so you go there, and then can't buy a ticket, and can't just buy from the conductor, and have to go find them, and it's the worst.

I'd rate Atlanta a 1 and NJ a 4 on transportation just for that.

I think I only used Newark once for the MPC, but there's a place to buy tickets pretty conveniently like on your way to the monorail thingy. You get a combo ticket that lets you use the monorail and then the train. I don't recall the details though.

the only complaint I had about the Atlanta venue was that I didn't have cell service in the game room. everything else about the trip was amazing, and I'd love to go back.

Curious what provider you have, I have Verizon and had no issues with reception. I wished I had no reception though because I got mistakenly added to some group chat of people apparently trying to coordinate finding each other at a baseball game and my phone was going nuts for about two hours.

I have Verizon and my cell reception was terrible in the hotel, and even a couple places nearby

Very strange

Wish I had an explanation for the difference.

I've used the station at Newark every time I've gone to NJ. So the MPCs and Worlds. Literally never had this problem that Joe has had. Ticket machine has always worked. It took credit card. I found they had plenty of people to assist in easy view so I could get directions on where I needed to go the first time I was there.

The only problem I've ever had was the Worlds event where the airtrain system was down. It took 30 minutes to get to the train tracks and I literally ran up as the train I wanted to be on was leaving. So I had to wait 40 minutes for the next one. Other than that though, zero problems with the NJ trains.

I know Emil got wrong info from the ticket buying place in New Brunswick one year and got on the wrong train because of it. Kyle has messed it up a bunch, but its Kyle so its kind of expected.
