Pax West badge date speculation

SinoSambaSinoSamba CaliforniaRegistered User regular
So in past years they tweeted for folks to not worry during April etc... Any word yet if this is the case? I'm guessing we will see the badges late April/early May.

    The last 3 years have been late May and early June.
    Obviously, past sales dates and behaviors aren't proof of future actions, but PAX West tickets have not gone on sale before May since 2013.
    2009: Thursday 2/19
    2010: Friday 4/2
    2011: Friday 4/15
    2012: Wednesday 4/25
    2013: Wednesday 4/17
    2014: Wednesday 5/28
    2015: Thursday 5/7
    2016: Tuesday 6/7
    2017: Thursday 6/8
    2018: Thursday 5/31
    Also, probably won't be on a Monday or Friday

    Echoing YoungFrey, I'm betting on May since East was a bit "early" in the year.

    I'm also betting on May, but not early May. I would say after May 15th, or so.

    2018 dates were announced 1 year ago today. Here's hoping they're announced soon.

    Hyped about the website update. I'm on the hook for more than my own tickets this year, definitely a bit stressed out.

    I am also on the hook for tickets that are not my own, i.e. I am purchasing tickets for my husband, as well as my friends, in addition to my own. Extra pressure this year.

    Me too! I am getting for myself, my daughter, my son and his friend this year. Remember you can't buy more than 4 badges for each day. Happy Pax badges!!

    In my case, I need to buy 2 extra tickets for Sun. I have a friend who will be a 1st time Paxer and his mother is coming too :)

    Fingers crossed for badges tomorrow so I can buy them darn plane tickets too. I want to make sure the badges are secured before booking the trip.

    Alright, Pax just tweeted no badges on sale until AFTER Memorial Day. We can relax for a few weeks :)

    Yep got startled but Pax folks did it all in the right order: heads up to calm down on Pax West, heads up on badges for Unplugged then a few mins later the Pax Badges tweet for Unplugged Tix. Good dry run for my Tweeter notifications!

    Unplugged definitely freaked me out. Also discovered that notifications weren't working properly as I didn't see anything about west badges being delayed until after memorial day until now.

    Well Dev registration is up: http://dev.paxsite.com / https://www.showclix.com/event/paxdev195ui3y5f
    $220 for all 4 days of West. And it looks like they are using the new passkey hotel site also, for better or for worse. :?

    Super stressed about this year. I haven't been to PAX since 2012, and IIRC, 3/4 years I've attended I had to buy from scalpers. I didn't think about passes selling out so fast until reading this thread and looking around for past sellout dates for reference. Sounds like they sell out incredibly fast, and I've been desperate to go back for years, and I would be devastated if I didn't get in this year. If I hadn't learned about the PAX Twitter announcements for badge sales, I'd be totally screwed for sure.

    Based on the last couple years you shouldn't get super stressed (just, on the ball). They've actually lasted quite a while, especially Monday passes (they never sold out last year!) Last year Friday sold out in 9 hours, Saturday in 40 minutes, Sunday in 1 hour. Year before that it took an hour and a half to sell out each day, months to sell out Monday. It seems the age of 15 minute sellouts is gone.

    Just make sure you have Twitter notifications working, and don't forget you can buy tickets on your phone.

    An interesting wrinkle this year, 4 day passes will be back.

    Edit:
    Changed tense to account for passes not being available yet

    I work at a computer all day, so you can bet that I'll be on the website (everyday, regardless of the haiku) refreshing the website t 10:59 and 11:59. I hope we don't crash the site...

    Also for consideration: they may go with another time other than noon, because of how big this hint was. Just an idea.

    If you buy PAX Dev badges you can also add on Pax West badges. Those are showing $220 for all four days.

    I haven't seen mentioned and thought it was worth doing so - May 30, 2001 was a Wednesday. Thursday seems like the obvious day, but who knows? A twist?

    Sure everyone here is watching the reg page nonstop until tickets are available regardless.

    Can it be Thursday already? I just want to get this done and over with.

    Since 2014, badges have gone on sale on: Wednesday, Thursday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Thursday in that order.
