    I doubt that passes would go on sale on the monday after Easter, because of the holiday, but they might go on sale in the middle of the week.

    Suffice to say my productivity will not be very high this week >_< Hoping tickets go on sale soon so it does not carry over to low productivity next week...

    It would really surprise me if tickets went on sale this week. Next week also seems somewhat unlikely to me... If I had to put money on it I'd guess that they'll go on sale the week of May-5th. Specifically I am going to go out on a limb and predict Wed May 7th.

    They haven't updated the website to countdown to 2014's PAX. That countdown is from PAX Prime 2013.

    It’s a dangerous business, going out of your door. You step into the Road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there is no telling where you might be swept off to.

    If you want any chance at a 4-day pass, you have to be F5ing on the registration page until passes go on sale.

    That's odd. I'm not sure why that's happening, as it loads fine for me. I have an ad-blocker app too.

    I'd try another browser too. I'd even use IE if that was what it took to get tickets.

    If you can still buy PAX Aus tickets, then I don't see why PAX Prime tickets wouldn't work out for you. Try a different browser too just to be safe.

    It was noted before, but we should really have an 'office' pool where we guess the date and time that the site goes live. And whoever is closest wins something. ><

    All I can say is that I am dying waiting for this.... sure there are another 100k people that want this pass but darn it they should listen to my whining and put it on sale now

    So, is it still a toss up for buying this pass if I enter the que immediately following the twitter announcement? I have it set up on my phone to enter the site and be able to enter que in less then 1 minute most likely. Will this be enough?

    No one knows anything for sure, but it sounds like you'll likely be able to get at least a single day pass for each day.

    It is my goal, and many others here, to actually be on top of it enough that we get in before the official tweet goes out. I know that can be troublesome for many but that has guaranteed others great spots in the queue in years past.

    Ugh. I woke up this morning and checked the site on my phone, feeling like today was the day. I immediately fell back asleep and proceeded to dream that I had managed to get into the queue before anyone else, and went through the whole checkout process. Very disappointing to wake up later and realize that I had no passes.

    Everyone says you have to be F5ing the registration page and stuff, but last year I got a 4-day pass by just checking in here randomly, seeing posts that passes were on sale, and going in and getting in the queue. Of course, my luck went way downhill from there and I couldn't actually go to PAX...

    Isn't it likely that they would update the PAX Prime main page to 2014 before passes would go on sale? Should I not worry about monitoring for the start of the sale until after they update the site? Because I'd rather not have to sit around staring at my computer every day for the next 3 weeks when I have a lot to do.

    Because it's unfair to those who were prepared to be first in line.

    damn, so i wont be able to get the 3/4-day pass it seems impossible, you have to do everything sms alerts and camp at your computer but I will be at school since I think they will be on sale, they will probably sell out in like 10 minute now? How fast do you have to get into que to get the 3/4 day pass? after the tweet?

    How long does 1 day pass sell out? it seems more expensive since I want to buy 4 of each

    All anyone can tell you is past experiences, for which there's plenty of info about when people got into the queue (including from the official "registration faq" that was linked). No way to know for sure how long it's going to take beforehand.

    I entered the queue on my phone when i got the text and on my computer at the same time. The computer beat my phone in the queue even though it went into the queue after and i still didnt have a choice to buy four day passes. But an insider tip is that if you stalk the forum somebody mentioned the tickets were on sale about 30 minutes before the text went out. Can you confirm mr moderator and on which forum discussion was it announced?

    I can't comment on how fast twitter's text notification thing moves as I do not use it. It was posted here on the forums about the same time that it went live on the website and on twitter for PAX Prime. For East there was a snafu with the website (it was being hammered so hard due to the pre-announcement that they couldn't get to the back-end to update it).

    The horror of having to be online 24/7 so you don't miss the announcement? It's damaging to one's sleep, health, and sanity. :scream:

    However, Comic-Con was a lottery this year... and I got dumped at the end of the queue. :confounded:

    Follow @Official_PAX. That's your notification.

    I have a new program that monitors the page for it to gain certain words or lose certain words and has a chirping alarm for when it detects the right perimeters plus a twitter sms notification for paxofficial.

    I promise you the tickets will not go up at 4:30 AM. They need people there to staff server issues, so it's almost certainly going to be during a weekday, and during business hours.

    Does anyone know when they redirected the paxsite homepage to prime.paxsite? I feel like they did that a few weeks before they actually updated the page. Currently when I go to paxsite I'm directed to east.paxsite.
    (Actually last year my phone would get directed to prime but my PC went to east for a week or so longer, not sure why probably something to do with my cookies).
