    Got 2 tickets. How did everybody else do. Problems?
  2. Looks like two threads at same time and more action in other...this one can be ignored, locked, shut down.

    doesn't make sense cause it took me under 2 to get to the ticket page

    No issues, but let me be the first to bitch about the service and processing fees these ticket places charge. An obvious money grab and it Sux

    2 as well, group B. No problems.
  14. Looks like I'm losing the thread war so time to jump in with the winners...I got 2 in Group A, no problems...site more responsive than last year...think key was getting into process at 'right time' and not trying to 'refresh' slow page loads from one step to the next...or pure luck.

    I got 2 for B, looks like I can keep my avatar another year. :)
  18. I should have known better from last year that the buy tickets button wouldn't load because it is an image. Anyway, I think they were all sold out after 2 minutes.

    Would've been good if it hadn't taken two minutes for the damn site to load.

  20. 2 for group b, done in about 5 minutes. The website held up well for me.
  21. As has been mentioned elsewhere, more might pop up in ~15 minutes. Orders that were held will expire and tickets may become available again.

    Wow that sucked. XV had nearly 1/3 less tickets and I had a way easier time getting tickets for that. Oh well, I'm sure I'll find my way there one way or another...

    zero for me, buddy got two
  38. I got two for group A so obviously the system works and I'm happy and don't care. If I didn't get tickets, though, well then it's because their server sucks and it's a total cash grab
