    With this year's reliance on TTE and no print schedules, will there be any WiFi options? For those there at GC XI, how was cellular service for data? Full disclosure, I have Verizon.

    The usual caveats of "be careful connecting to a strange WAP" or even one that seems legit, wifi interceptors and so forth.

    I am glad they are saving on trees.

    I plan on saving screenshots on my phone just in case of a weak signal. This includes both my events and those signed up for events I am running/help running.

    Wifi in the resort has been solid the past few years. The only place where I've ever had a problem is the stairwell down to the GM Lounge. The Lounge area has its own router, but there's a gap in coverage right there in the stairwell.

    Verizon coverage on the property is solid. I didn't use the wifi last year but heard comments that it had improved over previous years.

    Really? That would be nice.

    After the first year was so awful, I just started going outside for all calls.

    Was there an announcement? I don't remember hearing the event book schedule was discontinued.

    Yes, in an email from Gary Con via TTE.

    So, I think they did it in the best way possible...well. I suppose if there was a news item on garycon.com it could have been better.

    Beats just being on FB.

    Is it available to all or just room holders?

    Available to all. Last year we had a ton of people who weren't staying at the GG playing in AL games, and our preferential mode of getting a pregenerated character was to visit DnDBeyond.com.
