    Yeah the pricing is interesting. I guess it is 55 for Fri/Sat/Sun and 45 for Monday?

    [Edit: Oh weird, I'd been clicking on "Soon" which is where the registration link would normally be and it did nothing, so I figure the pricing was going to be changed. But then I clicked on "Registration" and then the apparently official reg. page actually showed up, but it's a weird price of $50.75 per day? How did they come up with that anyway? And how does that add up to $210?]

    every day's great on

    50.75 is what is listed on the registration page at the moment, but that doesn't equate to $210 though, that would be $203. Maybe there's another fee within that makes it round out to $210.

    My friend asked for a test notification from PAX_badges on Twitter and somehow I got notified of the test and got a heart attack.

    Best way to start a Saturday.

    This'll be the year I return to West! I'd love to cosplay again but carrying all that gear through the airport is a hassle....

    Looks like a somewhat similar timeline from last year as far as badges going on sale.

    I feel like I should be in full on panic mode seeing as how we're already in May, but I'm oddly calm.

    And that's why I'm starting to panic.

    Same here. I feel more off-guard than previous years. Probably because the day of badge sales is becoming more and more predictable.

    I also feel the same way. My co-workers think I'm really crazy because I don't shut up about the impending SOON!

    Glad it's not just me; on May 1st I was like "well...better start setting up for PAX..." then 4 days later all I'd managed to do was log in and like a picture of a cat

    TIL, it appears Blizzcon tickets go faster than PAX badges. I wonder if that's due to pre-announcing the times... I am very glad PAX does not pre-announce.

    There are a few things that I assume contribute to this.

    1. Pre-announcement certainly makes them sell fast.
    2. Blizzcon has less tickets available as it is only two days instead of the four that West does.
    3. Blizzcon splits up the purchases into multiple batches. So only half the tickets were available yesterday (or how ever many they allotted).
    4. Pax is multiple shows now which helps alivate some of the demand.

    I am also very glad PAX does not pre-announce.

    I tried to get those as well! I take back every complaint I've had about the Pax badge buying process, that Blizzcon ticket system is brutal.

    May PAX be upon you.

    Also, your badges aren't reserved during your purchase process like pax or sdcc, so it's more akin to Pax hotel purchase. If your not Quick Draw Mcgraw with your info your out of luck.

    May PAX be upon you.

    And the PAX sell-out times are a little over stated these days. It might take 45 minutes to sell all the PAX West Saturday badges, but you sure couldn't join the queue 40 minutes after the sale started and expect to get any. So I think they are a good bit closer than they seem at first.

    So I’ve been watching this forum for years but never signed up to comment. I’m the regular you never knew existed. Why I’ve chosen this moment to reveal myself to you remains a mystery even to me, but I believe it’s a sign of our impending nearness... Heed my call, Pax is not for the uncommitted in spirit or in heart.

    Pax announced that badges for Unplugged are going on sale on the 17th, with a friendly warning to West folks that it would be a good time to test ticket notifications.

    We don't go to PAX to celebrate video games. We go to PAX to celebrate getting tickets.

    Yeah, count me among those, since I didn't see these notifications. :/ I used to get them, when it was @Official_PAX, but since the changeover I'm not receiving any notifications.

    Is there a primer?

    Today is definitely a good day to test. I usually just manually turn on notifications via SMS (texting 40404 with ON @Pax_badges) because sometimes the switch on the site doesn't work.
