Based on the GOOFCON system at /r/MMA, FATCON is an alert system I've come up with to describe the status of GNR and the community with a simple number. FATCON 5 () - Nothing going on. The tour is over and Axl hasn't been seen in at least a year. No news of any kind in sight. Default status during downtime. FATCON 4 () - Situation normal. GNR is touring. There may be faint stirrings of new songs circulating, but nothing concrete. Default status during a tour. FATCON 3 () - The tour is in full swing. Axl is sounding competent and they might even be playing some new UYI deep cuts. Leaks are said to be actively circulating in the GNR underworld. Examples of recent FATCON 3s include the return of Duff in 2014, and the addition of Coma to the setlist in 2016. FATCON 2 ()- Something has pissed Axl off and the tour is in jeopardy. Expect deleted tweets and lots of damage control in a FATCON 2 situation. Maybe even a walk-off in the middle of a show. Snippets of songs may be leaking at this stage. Examples of historic FATCON 2s include Rock in Rio 2011, Dublin 2011, the initial Rick Dunsford hysteria, and the first 2016 show. FATCON 1 () - Mass hysteria. Axl has gone rogue. Cancelled the tour. Punched a reporter. Fired Slash. New album announcement. Full songs are leaking and websites are being shut down by copyright lawyers. Brazilians are flooding the GNFNR servers en masse. Examples of historic FATCON 1s include the 1992 contract signing, the St. Louis riot, the countdown for CD appearing on gunsnroses.com, and the 2016 reunion news breaking. When do you guys think the next FATCON 1 will be?
