    Unless something changes I'll be there[DOUBLEPOST=1388954092][/DOUBLEPOST]I'm new to the MA competitive seen, and I was wondering what it's like around here. Do events get big turn outs, what's the meta like, any info on anything along those lines would be helpful if you guys have the time. Thanks.

    You should check my tourney report to get an idea of the meta (obviously changing soon, someone will tell me the current meta at states), but it will definitely vary at the big event (no special requirements), I'd reccommend preparing for the tier one decks (Virizion/genesect, Blastoise, darkrai for sure, Plasma/snorlax/Lugia, etc.) For now, I am waiting for the results of the new decks a bit after XY is released. I'd recommend the same for now, this event is in 3 months anyways.

    Will do. I might just run Fairys for fun and see how it goes.

    I have every intention of going, and there is absolutely no block in my schedule that would/should prevent me from going. Probably going to go either Fairy/whatever comes from XY or Rogue, but worst comes to worst I have Blastoise to fall back on :p.

    I may go just to defend my 2nd place, if not it won't matter much to me. Hopefully I'll have the invite by then.

    Ya gotta go, me and my gf are about to book our hotel. Speaking of that, any info on where we can get discounted prices on the hotel for regionals?

    @Salamencetrainer34 I better hang out with you also!

    Hell, I'd like to meet all of ya!

    I've been out of it for awhile (actually the last tournament I tried to go to was spring regs last year, but I had to back out of it last minute because of family issues...) and I can't make any promises, but since this is literally 30 minutes away from my house I'm intending to show up and compete. I know Sturbridge pretty well and go there every couple weeks, so hopefully I'll see you guys there! :D

    In the meantime I have to get current with everything that's changed this past year, there's a lot of catching up to do. >->

    Yeah, you can add me to the confirmed list. I'm 100% certain that I will be going to this event now and it's going to be a blast! :D

    I could look it up for you. I don't know about any hotels on discount but there are a couple hotels that are pretty close to the convention center iirc.

    I can stay at that same hotel but like VA Regionals, they had a special for participants where the room was like 50% off each night...

    Did you try calling any nearby hotels? They probably know whether they have specials or not. (I am not going to any hotel as I am being driven there, so dont ask me about any special)

    Well I looked it up, you can actually stay at the event location (it doubles as a 3 star hotel) for $119 a night. There are also a handful for 2-3 star hotels all within walking/driving distance that range from $60-$100 a night. Unfortunately I couldn't find any deals or discounts from my search, sorry.
