    Pretty disappointing if that's it. I have literally zero interest in CAH. Also it's just Jeff and Brad.

    Last year they had an event before PAX started, a main panel, and a couple of the guys were on some of the other panels IIRC.

    They are going to be in Benaroya hall. That is really cool.

    I like that they are allowing more panels to be longer then an hour. That's been sorely needed for years.

    There is no off site location this year. Their PAX stuff isn't great anyway, best to save the budget.

    You know this for sure? I've been waiting for word on what their plans are and haven't heard anything.

    Whole-heartedly disagree about their PAX stuff not being great. Last year's PAX Prime event was incredible, I was very hopeful they were going to do something similar again.

    EDIT: Nevermind, just saw Jeff posted that news on his tumblr. Huge bummer if they aren't doing a full panel either. :(

    Yeah bit of a bummer, especially as I'm flying out from Scotland for my first PAX. I'm intrigued by Jeff's comments about wanting to change-up the main panel for a while now, but hopefully there's an informal meetup of sorts at some bar somewhere.

    Oh it was just on the last Bombcast I think. He said that a hot collabo between them and CAH at PAX has been on the cards (pun absolutely intended :p ) for a few years now. He recognised that there's a lot of overlap between people who would go to both panels.

    He also wanted to be in the 'big' theatre which they've now achieved as a result.

    At first I was a bit bummed they were splitting their time, but I'm pretty excited. Plus, as it's main theatre, it seems as though it will be live broadcast which it typically isn't!

    @giant_frying_pan: oh I see, thanks for the info.

    I'm honestly not entirely sure how I feel about it but hopefully it's cool! I'm super bummed it appears that they're not going to be doing a meet up this year. It seems like they do one every year I don't go to Pax.
