When I was deciding between which events to attend this year for FFTCG, I faced a dilemma that I think a lot of players have debated on. There are only so many events you can attend, between price and time off from work, can you choose to go to a non-qualifying event over something like a Crystal Cup? There have been multiple non-qualifying events to choose from in the last few months. Reunion II, The Summoning, and Fan Fair were all on my list of potential travels. In the end I decided that I had to go to Reunion, one of the biggest motivations being that I wanted to meet all my Cards of Ivalice teammates in person and support James Lockwood’s event. So here I am back from Reunion and I’ll tell you straight off the bat, I don’t regret going for a second. The great news is, there are more and more fan made events cropping up this year, so let’s talk about what made Reunion so great and why you might consider traveling for these types of events (Reunion III next year for example).
