    Got into queue like fifteen seconds after that tweet went up, and three day passes were sold out. Oofa doofa.

    Got enough one day passes for the whole weekend, at least.

    Now waiting to see how badly I do on a hotel.

    I was able to grab a 3 Day pass early but unless I get a very cheap hotel I'm probably not able to go

    At work currently, leaving the queue open on my phone.

    I do not favor my odds.

    Apparently I reverse-jinxed myself, because I got in and managed to get two sets of passes for the full weekend right after posting that.

  • MaddocMaddoc I'm Bobbin Threadbare, are you my mother? Registered User regular
    Got my passes, and got a couple rooms at the Hyatt, all set until I have to book my flight.

  • Goose!Goose! That's me, honey Show me the way home, honeyRegistered User regular
    Yeah hotels are even more expensive than last year's. Oh well.

  • DidgeridooDidgeridoo Flighty Dame Registered User regular
    Woof, Omni's already sold out of the days we wanted, had to do a different hotel. I'll have to keep an eye out for cancellations, though.

    Hmm I should really look for people to split the cost of room with, having the room to myself last year was super nice but also wicked expensive

    I ended up at the Hyatt Regency, over next to the Common

  • ThetherooThetheroo Registered User regular
    Damn, I really wanted to go this year but it's not worth it for me to go up to Boston for just one day.

  • NaphtaliNaphtali Hazy + Flow SeaRegistered User regular
    I couldn't get a room at the usual place I stay at (hilton downtown) so ended up over at the hilton airport. plus side is it's cheaper than most of the other options and right next to the silver line to the convention. downside is there's nothing in the vicinity of the hotel and the restaurant there is expensive as f for breakfast but that can be solved by bringing your own stuff at least.

    Saturday passes are goooooone

  • Goose!Goose! That's me, honey Show me the way home, honeyRegistered User regular
    Only way I'm going is if I split a room or crash.

    Nothing even close to affordable solo

  • ThetherooThetheroo Registered User regular
    Saturday passes were sold out then not sold out, so I managed to get passes for the whole weekend.

    Going to PAX for the first time. Yeahhhhhhhhh boiiiiiiii

    I'm trying to figure out the hotel situation right now. Lots of places already booked.

  • KwoaruKwoaru Confident Smirk Flawless Golden PecsRegistered User regular
    Hoo boy sat through the pax hotel queue and nothing is available that is significantly cheaper or for the days I want compared to what I've got

    Now I have to get flights I guess

    Heads up, if you go to one peak to view your reservation, you can go straight to the hotels page without waiting in line once you've already reserved something.

    I ended up having to grab a second room at the Hyatt right after I reserved the first one, and that was a lifesaver.

  • MaddocMaddoc I'm Bobbin Threadbare, are you my mother? Registered User regular
    I lucked out and was near my computer right when the tweet alert came in, but woof, that was stressful.

    I work for Marriott so I get free/heavily discounted hotel rooms. I reaaaaalllly hope some GM in Boston will let me burn a few nights.

    I got a Fri and Sat, could have done Sun too but I'm not spending $150 on tickets. Also, damn hotel prices are up a lot over the last few years. I'm not even 100% sure I'll keep the tickets. I might have to make South my main one and only now, even though I've never missed an East and it doesn't feel right not going.

    Badge prices seem quite a bit more than previous years? Didn't it used to be $85 for the 3-days? Altho, I don't remember what the day badge prices used to be.

  • MaddocMaddoc I'm Bobbin Threadbare, are you my mother? Registered User regular
    I want to say they were like $45 last year for day passes?

  • The Otaku SuppositoryThe Otaku Suppository Bawstan New EnglandRegistered User regular
    I guess that's not the worst increase then. I don't know, this would be all be a moot point if they would fix how they distribute/sell badges. Make people pick up their badges on site rather than mailing them in advance and you don't have to worry about tickets selling out in 9 minute because a bunch of people are buying multiples to sell on Ebay.

    I think if it were a bigger problem they might resort to that.

  • PsykomaPsykoma Registered User regular

    Not to hash semantics, but having to acknowledge that its a "bigger problem" recognizes that it is a problem as it currently exists, but just that they don't want to do anything about it. If they would have people pick up their badges instead of throwing them into the ether, this would all be moot. The 3 day badges sold out in 9 minutes and already there are almost 100 and climbing postings on Ebay with people selling multiple tickets at 2x or 3x pricing. They already kill a portion of the main exhibition floor just for a queue, why not put it to better use if people are going to be waiting in line every morning anyway? (And it's not like they're not used to standing in lines on the show floor anyway...)

    Didn't Khoo give an interview about the pass problem before? Wish I could remember where it was so I could link it/read it again

    Anyway I'm pretty sure the jist was that it's a problem and they know it's a problem but they've tried or explored basically every possible solution and none of them actually fix the problem in a satisfactory way

    Let's split a hotel room then!

    Got a Friday pass, considered getting Sunday but eh. I can spend the other days drinking/doing other Boston stuff.

  • Goose!Goose! That's me, honey Show me the way home, honeyRegistered User regular
    Friday and Sunday are low, show might be sold out before the night's over.

  • CelloCello Registered User regular

    Oof, had a couple friends waiting on their Sunday pass until they got paid, but hearing Sunday is already low I just ended up buying their Sunday passes for them.
