Fancy a trip to New Zealand late next year? If so, you might want to hold up your planning until Grinding Gear Games irons out all the details regarding ExileCon, its first Path of Exile convention, tentatively scheduled for November 2019.

For the moment, GGG is asking fans for input regarding the convention, including whether they'd come at all. The event would be held in GGG's home of Auckland, New Zealand, which would make for expensive travel for most. If you do arrive, you'd be treated to expansion announcements, demo sessions, developer talks, tournaments, parties -- all the usual frills that come with these kinds of things.

If you'd like to make your thoughts on ExileCon known, head over to the PoE forums to give your opinions on the show. For what it's worth, a quick search for plane fares from my current location in the U.S. to Auckland the first weekend of this November yields prices in the $1,500 to $2,000 range. That would buy a whole lot of Supporter Packs.

I can't help but feel that they kinda killed the players motivation for such a thing with the announcement that tencent bought an 80% stake in them, on the plus side, MIKE they will release their financials...though i get the feeling that they will be skewed because of player backlash.
