    Almost made a mistake. My phone didn't register that I picked a Sunday pass so I had to go back through the Queue to grab one. All good now though.

    So excited to go to my first ever PAX.

    And now my watch has ended. Got in a few seconds after hearing tweet. Got out of queue at ~1:16. Announcement for starting to go low went out at 1:19. Based on YoungFrey's response it seems like you have about a minute to get into queue in order to secure badges. I clicked on link right away and still waited about 15 mins. So it shows there is a rush of people right at beginning. Then it tapers off and you have about a minute maybe 2 before you enter the danger zone.

    Its all good, I was in the Queue on my computer as well so I didn't have to wait too long. I usually use that second queue to watch the sellout times for the spreadsheet though so I don't know how accurate the times will be this year.

    Whew - that low badge update made the last few minutes of the queue harrowing. Got in queue a minute or two after the tweet and checked out at 1:23pm. So glad this is finally done!

    Sheraton's a boss hotel--they're all sweet of course, but with a choice, I'd go with the Sheraton even with the extra $$$.

    How's that Crowne Plaza? I stayed at the Westin last year but the Plaza was cheapest this time around so I went with that. Good idea, bad idea?

    Also, still waiting on my heartbeat to slow down from that first announcement tweet.

    Even after getting my badges, my adrenaline is still pumping through my body.

    Stayed there last year, no complaints. Very spacious rooms and clean. Even though it's uphill, it is right across from a rear park entrance that leads straight to the convention building.

    The Sheraton is a great hotel. I've stayed there several times.

    Glad I set Twitter to ring my phone or I would have missed this.

    Got in the queue at 1:03 PM... Still waiting :x

    Got through the queue in the hotels and all hotels had a missing day in all the bookings. I mean really people how does that work?!

    I got in queue probably about 1:02, got through about 38 or so after?

  • PookyAlertPookyAlert Registered User regular
    Kay, so I'm still in-queue too. :smile: It's a thing. I was in a meeting last round and didn't have a prayer, but I still went last year coz I got tickets at work and it's awesome regardless. So don't give up. There will be a secondary sale, most likely, there will be a chance maybe at a day that doesn't begin with Satur, there will be things you may be able to do. Heck, even being in Seattle that day is awesome, I promise.

    PAX is awesome, so I hope everyone gets a day. Don't despair.

    I don't understand. I got in queue very quickly and made it to checkout after several minutes. But I was unable to proceed with buying tickets and there was no indication of why that was. Then I lost my place in line. Roasted and toasted.

  • GiuocoGiuoco Registered User regular
    People on PC try refreshing I know they say that doesn't work, but I only did it once and it worked after waiting about 20 minutes.

    If you can go through Explorer on a PC, I keep doing it and get right through to the tickets.

    I'm not buying more, just checking.

    Dang. I was taking a quiz when they went on sale and didn't get into the queue until 1:15 :(

    Hopefully Friday and Saturday doesn't sell out l. I'm still in the queue.

  • YoungFreyYoungFrey Registered User regular
    It's already taken longer than last year. So either they managed to squeeze more badges somehow, or they are selling at a lower rate. They might also be real-time canceling rule breakers and feeding those back in to extend the sale time.

  • PookyAlertPookyAlert Registered User regular
    OMG. Okay, I just got in and all four days were still available, just to let you know. Not gloating, but for historical purposes, in at 1:05 and out at 1:46. Breathless.

    likely a coincidence, but it probably doesn't hurt anything.
