I had my plans to go to Minecon with the Vadact Build Team back when they said it'd be in August-September. But seeing all the recent things that developed amongst Mojang/Minecraft, I'd only see it as a waste of money. There is just nothing interesting to see at Minecon in my opinion. Events such as Eurogamer, Gamescon or Insomnia are more worth the money that you'd save on not going to minecon. That is why I made the decision not to go to Minecon, even though my costs would have only been 350 euros max. (I already calculated train tickets, staying at a hotel, the tickets themselves and minor expenses).
