What is a pax uber
Uber x drivers. taking the pax through the drive through
If you need to get to PAX East in style and don’t have a bus, you may be fortunate enough to catch a ride with a member of Blizzard’s Overwatch, thanks to a partnership with Uber called UberWATCH. Overwatch’s May 24th release date is rapidly approaching, and their huge free open beta begins on May 5th. Blizzard Studios has partnered with Uber to offer PAX East attendees a preview of three heroes and three incredible cars.
All directions to meet and greet your hero can be found on the Uber website, but in general, go to the Convention Center and hope to be picked up by Tracer, D.Va, or Solider 76.
Solider 76 will be driving a Ford F650 Supertruck, D.Va will be driving a hot pink Polaris Slingshot, and the very fortunate few will be able to get behind the wheel of Tracer, who will be driving a Lamborghini Aventador, as seen above. I’m serious.
This is sure to be a famous case, so expect it to be crowded. Don’t panic if you don’t get a pick-up right away; just keep trying the app and you’ll finally be “saved.” This is one of the coolest advertising opportunities we’ve seen associated with PAX, and there are a lot of them.
Uber dc – a top 5 pax – vlog #116
I usually pick up anyone, but I do consider the ratings. He and three of his friends were picked up by a 4.3 the other day. He was working hard to be a good PAX, even telling his buddies to chill out or he’d get a bad ranking, so you could tell he was aware of his rating. For his efforts, I gave him a five.
I don’t really pay attention to the Pax ratings, and out of the 50 or so I’ve only had about 1 pax who deserved a sub-4.5 rating (he had a 4.7 or so but was an arrogant jerk, but that’s a story for another day.)
You get 5 stars if you tip, approve spike prices, or otherwise greatly brighten my day. Otherwise, depending on your promptness and attitude, you’ll get 4 or less. I couldn’t give a damn if anyone else didn’t like the way I do stuff.
I picked up a guy twice who had a 4.3 or something similar on his score. I was young, so I didn’t pay attention to the ranking, but I thought it was odd that he was rated so low. I picked him up a week later and he tried to come onto me, and I instantly realized why he had such low scores. I now trust the score, but I’m not an analist. In my opinion, a 4.7 is still a decent score!!
My experience w/ 3 drunk women pax – uber storytime
I reminded people a while back that they should tip their Uber drivers. “I’d like to tip, but half the point of Uber is not having to carry cash,” was a popular answer. There isn’t even an option in the app. So, how do I go about doing it?” Maybe Pax, a small seatback device designed solely to accept tips in cash or on a credit card.
There isn’t much to it; you’ve probably seen similar systems in cabs that display advertising and allow you to pay without the driver having to fiddle with a decade-old device up front. It’s an Android computer with a card reader and a solid box with a cash slot.
Since you’d be paying for your Uber ride with the app, this will just be used for tipping: choose a number, swipe, and you’re finished. Pax is seeking $50,000 on Kickstarter to get this project off the ground.
Azarias Reda, the app’s founder, claims he created it as a DIY project to help his uncle, who works full-time for Uber, supplement his income. He estimated that the prototype made $10-20 per full day — not much, but it covers a shift meal and some gas, which is a lot better than zero.
5 annoying questions by uber pax
As they prepared to leave Seattle’s Queen Anne neighborhood for the PAX West game convention, Cole Wetle and Alissa Lawhon dressed up as Celes Chere and her love interest Locke Cole from “Final Fantasy VI.” To get a ride downtown, they used the Uber app. That’s when they saw it: a tiny Chocobo symbol depicting the Final Fantasy series’ recurring bird characters, along with the abbreviation “FFXV.”
“Going to PAX and getting out of a Chocobo as a Final Fantasy character was like my ‘Final Fantasy’ Cinderella,” Lawhon said after arriving at the Washington State Convention Center with Wetle in a yellow Mini Cooper with tail feathers.
The trip, which featured Final Fantasy XV music and video clips, was the result of a collaboration between Uber and Final Fantasy developer Square Enix to promote the November release of Final Fantasy XV. It’s one of the Final Fantasy vehicles that Uber is bringing to PAX West as part of the collaboration.
The promotion runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. every Friday. If you want to have your own Final Fantasy Uber experience, come on Saturday and Sunday. You’ll have a hard time matching the element of surprise that these two Final Fantasy fans encountered.
