Gamer Cruise Controversy

The Koalition has been reporting on controversy surrounding a video game cruise known as Gamer Tech Events, Cruise Con, and Gamer Gauntlet. Varying reports attribute booking systems such as Cvent, Eventbrite, and Paypal used to take unfilled orders rather than actual ticket sales, leading to a refunds investigation by an alleged ESPN contributor.

Due to large upfront deposits and attrition schedules of charters, which usually require a travel agency to provide third party booking rather than direct sales from the cruise line, a video game cruise would require substantial investment. Fusion Marketing has reportedly left the project, but experienced esports organizers may have a winning formula for the future.
