BioWare’s announcement that the SWTOR team will be at PAX East 2011 was accompanied by Stephen Reid’s PAX East suggestion thread in the official forums.  For those lucky enough to attend there are some terrific ideas for booth activities and other events.  Our recap of the best of the thread after the jump.

Those who cannot attend will be happy to see that BioWare is actively seeking ways to engage the online community during the event.  Stephen Reid was very receptive to the idea of a forum user raffle and asked people to keep the ideas coming.

Unfortunately, it has already been confirmed that livestreaming is highly unlikely.  But there will be hands-on gameplay, WOOT.  Read Stephen Reid’s post here.

Great On-Site Ideas for PAX East

  • Awards/Drawing for fan sites and/or guild sites in attendance
  • Caricature artists drawing attendees as their favorite class
  • Great Hunt (scavenger hunt)
  • SWTOR T-shirt signings by devs, authors, voice actors, etc.
  • KOTOR trivia contest
  • Intern for a Day contest.  Intern sits at booth, providing live updates.
  • Hire people to dress as companions and follow random attendees.
  • Meet and greets

Great Off-Site Ideas for PAX East

  • Timely updates on official site
  • Awards to fan sites/guilds NOT in attendance
  • Raffle for forum users
  • Much demand for video – behind the scenes road-to-PAX-East developer vid; scenes from PAX East, including fans, panels, and booth activities; blooper reel.  Stephen Reid says, ok we got it, more video!
