    The Time is coming! The time to sit on our mailboxes like vultures while we wait for the mail to deliver the sweet sweet goodness of PAX badges. Any idea when we might be able to expect them? And post here when you receive them too!

    They won't arrive until early march at the earliest. It's quite awhile away.

    Fridays are likely to sell out today.

    Also, I saw that there were a couple 3-day badges available due to Enforcer refunds.... you might get lucky if you were to pounce right now.

    Three days are all gone. Watched them trickle down from 4 (when I loaded the page) to 0. There seems to be one Saturday badge left as of this posting.

    For people needing a three day just keep watching the registration page. Hopefully more three days will pop up so you won't have to resort to a reseller.

    EDIT: Saturday just re-sold out

    No it's not. East 2012 was the only PAX East that did not completely sell out.

    It only didn't sell out for Sunday, right? I'd be willing to bet that's because it was on Easter.

    Just out of curiosity, how quickly did the 3 day badges sell out, I had to buy seperate passes, not complaining its my fault but I am still curious on how fast those 3 days went.

    Oops, you are right. Guess I thought since East didn't sell out (for Sunday) last year the previous ones did not either. But as @stardust462 noted it didn't sell out due to Easter Sunday.

    Meh, brain not fully on yet - too early. :rotate:

    I think the sold out within 24 hours. I think they were available the morning of October 8th, and sold out that night.

    I wish they would announce a solid week or so before the sale starts so I can plan around camping the page to get a badge. I was lucky this year and just happened to check the website the same day the sale started but I dont even think I saw a tweet before the sale would start.

    Makes getting a PAX Prime pass more of a crapshoot then it already is. I would gladly spend a vacation day at home camping the page to try and get a PAX Prime badge if I knew about it more then 24hrs before.

    There is always a tweet right before registration starts, or simultaneously with the start. If they announced it ahead of time, *everyone* would camp it, and it would get insane. Either way, there was a debate thread about handling registration for large conventions in the Debate and Discourse subforum. If you want to continue that discussion, I would suggest doing so there, as it's not really within the remit of this thread.

    Hope this isn't against the rules, but I wanted to let those people who still need passes know that Plantronics GameCom has a contest to win two 3-day passes for PAX East. https://www.facebook.com/GameComFaceOff/app_143103275748075 The contest ends next week, so there's just a little bit of time!

    Mods, would it be okay to post this into it's own topic as well?

    It's fine posted here, no to its own topic.

    Is it too late to change your shipping address for your badges? A friend of mine just realized he was using his address back home instead of where he's currently staying, which is a few states away. He changed his address via the registration form like paxsite.com's FAQ says but we're both kind of worrying about it.

    It's cutting it pretty darn close. He should email pax_questions@paxsite.com and registration@paxsite.com with his dilemma right away.

    Hi everyone,

    Basically, what the title says. For some reason I recall getting my PAX badge about a month before the event last year. As we're now in March, just checking to see if they've been sent out yet/if anyone else has gotten theirs. Thanks, and see you all in Boston!

    i know this is completely ridiculous, but since people were literally posting pictures of actual bobcats last year, will you please clarify that pictures of BADGES are okay? again, i know i'm being silly, but i just want to be sure before i post.
