    Seat Requesting/Changing

    Hey All,

    Went to I59 and I'm pretty sure there was an option on tff to request to switch with someone else's seat (didn't test it) - but when we try and do it we get the usual generic seat error.

    Is it possible to request a change with someone else's seat? (a strangers seat, not one of ours).

    We booked 3 spots then a space, then 3 spots so that our 7th guy could go in the middle when he got his ticket (getting it a bit late compared to us). Someone has randomly jumped into the spot between us 6 therefore we can't get our 7th guy sitting next to us without moving us all to another area.

    Any way around this?

    Appreciate any help
    Cheers

    You can do your best internet stalking and/or ask for him by name on the forum see if you can contact him directly and ask him (nicely) to move.

    That is going to be the most awkward Lan ever, with some random in the middle of your group! HAHA!

    I would suggest checking his username/clan tag on the seat picker on steam, and try find him that way.

    Hopefully this is just a case of someone has moved a teammate in the middle of a group as a joke, and will move him again shortly.

    Surely nobody actually attends a BYOC on their own?

    Quite a few people attend by themselves! Just check some of the posts on this forum. You don't know other peoples circumstances and insomnia has always been a great event to meet new people!

    Very valid point, pretty brave to show up alone and just make friends (more sociable than me anyhow!). Picking your seat must be a weird one too!

    This will be my first Insomnia and I'm coming on my own - I'm hoping I'll meet some friendly people who enjoy drinking beer and playing games.. surely this is the right place for that!? Personally it was pretty tricky picking a seat - especially since the "key" on the picker doesn't match up to the colours I could pick from (I picked 'Console Player'...).

    I don't think it was me that chose the middle seat but if it were i'd happily move...

    I'd love if anyone had any advice for picking a seat? I saw GeoSnipe's map but it just gave vague areas for a couple of games?

    Appreciate the replies guys

    Yeah, I must admit, he's got some cahonés to jump in the middle of a 6 man clan haha, we're not fussed about meeting new people, part of the reason we're there. There's a chance he's good fun and get's along with us all, but it splits the group up AND may end up making us move to another 7 slot so I was hoping there was a magical mystical way to switch with him or ask him if he could politely move to the end (shy of being at the event and asking to be told to do one and sit awkwardly for the next 5 days).

    We tried to do a bit of stalking but didn't really get anywhere (steam, forums etc), if anyone knows it's "BADASSvBADGER" (Seat T 12) with a name like that, I'm sure he'll be a barrel of laughs!

    Cheers
