    I think it's going at a slower rate. Not because of demand, but because I feel like it just took longer to get through the queue.

    One day is better than no days. You might miss some panels and whatnot, but if it was all you could afford then I would just take it and run with it and have the best day of your life :)

    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.
    It's probably just a limit on simultaneous transactions.

    LOL! It's awesome. It's not enough--4 days aren't enough, but it's so amazing, just plan as best you can and enjoy it thoroughly, call it your No Regrets day and live it fully. :biggrin:

    I would totally try F5 on the wait-page. It worked for me.

    If it took only a few minutes to get to "very low" then it shouldn't take an hour to get the rest, presumably. Unless "very low" is like 70% remaining

    could be people having badges in carts and then releasing them

    Almost an hour in and nothing is sold out yet. Must have gotten a lot of the surrounding area this year. (or the queue is taking longer as other suggested.)

    I feel you. I was unfortunately in class taking a quiz and didn't get into the queue until 1:15 pm. I really want to avoid the scalpers. I'm still in queue as well.

    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?!

    UPDATE: Just completed my purchase and was able to get 2 of all 4 days

    I'll just have to find a hotel elsewhere I guess :(

    Realized I didn't get a hotel confirmation e-mail and nearly died. Thankfully it was still available on the website, though I'm not sure why I didn't get one this year; I have one from last year.

    That might be possible yeah. I just got through the queue, so maybe they throttle it heavily towards the end to avoid actually running out in case carts expire

    Today has been my least productive day of work ever.

    But it has been worthwhile.

    And my core group of PAX friends all got badges thanks to teamwork!! ♥

    this has been a "slow" sell out. I can only think that there wasn't a PA Club pre sale, or the site went up exactly at 10am-1pm-4pm instead of 15-20minutes early, which would account to things selling out 15-20minutes sooner


    or. ya know. this video games fad is finally dead.

    For those in the queue at 2:08pm pacific time it showed all four days still available so don't give up hope for those still waiting as I just checked out.

  • forbiddenvoidforbiddenvoid Cupertino, CARegistered User regular
    Able to get 8 nights at the Renaissance, so that was pretty good.

    Yeah, got in queue probably close to 1:04 but this has been the longest I had to wait to check out, got passes at 1:50. And I was using the browser window in the Twitter app so didn't have my info saved, thumb typing all that info on an adrenalin rush made things challenging. But all set!

    I think I got in queue at 3min after the tweet posted. That what I remember seeing in twitter (I was in my car driving back from lunch). I clicked the link from twitter and was sitting in queue in the twitter window. I just managed to get 2x Fri and 2x Sat tickets at about 2pm.

    This is my first time getting tickets directly from PA in a long time. The last few years I have just hit up Craigslist to get a single day (I live in Seattle now).

    Good luck everyone.

    Snagged 4 days, didn't realize I couldn't use one. Oh well. Not getting a hotel since I'm local, hopefully that doesn't suck too much.

    I think most folks (including myself) haven't gotten hotel emails yet. I'm not worried though because OnPeak shows it's confirmed when I log in.

    Is anyone that got in 1-2 minutes after they went live still waiting? I am.

    I think you might have a problem, sir... I got in queue just before 1:04 (that's when I sent a txt message to some folks); and finished my checkout about 20 minutes later... have you tried refreshing the queue page? Good luck!

    Have you done an occasional refresh?

    Keyword - occasional.
    Too much and it says it will throttle or block you.

    Sunday sold out after the ticket page loaded but before I could actually click on the ticket options. o.O I thought the que system was supposed to reserve until you were done.

    I had that in 2014, had to refresh once and it worked ok.

    Woo! 70 minutes in the queue, and managed to snag a Friday, Sunday and Monday pass!
    So glad my boss was distracted this afternoon.

    And Friday is now out.
    Of course if you didn't get any, keep checking. Unused and denied ones get repopulated.
