I was placed 3132 in line, and checked out about 20 minutes later. Way better than last year. Got events I wanted this time since I learned how the wish list priority works.
Hit the button within a second or two of it going live, 15 minute wait till my wish list was processed then I was in the 7500 neighborhood.
I got almost nothing I wanted but to be fair I really didn't expect to. I give it a try get what I get then spend the next couple of months seeing if anything gets returned or finding different stuff, usually stuff I've never tried or even heard of that just catches my fancy. Never been disappointed yet.
My only regret,and surprise, was the 4 day parking passes sold out before I could get one and I barely got a 5 day one, system said there was only 181 left when I put it in my cart. That said a 5 day parking pass is still cheaper than 4 days in one of the garages and at least I'm guaranteed a spot.
I had a pretty easy time. Like everyone, I was kinda fooled when they moved the button to click. But once i did click, I started at 901 in line. It held there for a couple or so minutes with no updates. I opened up a second tab and refreshed it. That took me to letting me know that I was fully processed and able to check out. Was able to get into all the events I wanted (two for TORG Eternity, the two round Shadowrun tournament, a few Shadowrun Missions, an Eclipse Phase, etc). My friends were able to get into all their events as well that correspond with mine which made it sweeter. All in all, the entire process from clicking the button to check out was about 10-12 minutes.
I feel I did pretty well. Was 4617 or so in line, but things moved fast. I did miss out on a Dresden Files game, but I knew they went fast. Otherwise I got all my first choices.
Still looking for something Friday AM. Oddly enough, I got none of my 3 choices for that time slot. Was really weird.
Wasn't too bad. Was 3300-something in queue and managed to get all but two of my events. Luckily, my friends were also buying event tix so I managed to get into the two i couldn't book myself.
Where did the queue number show up? I never saw one.
Clicked at noon. Was 21 in line! Still did not get thee events! LOL! All three were free events, one demo and two autograph sessions with authors. I figure I just take my chances and stand in line for the autographs, the demo is no big deal. Two years ago I was 3000 or something in line and got nothing I wanted, still found lots to do. Looks like it all evened out with this years luck!
Submitted, in the early afternoon, thought I had things came back approved. Cart was missing everything. Had to go through and order tickets for the events I could in general registration. :(
I started at number 7000 something and got none of the events I wanted on my list :). Fortunately, there are other events I want that don't sell out, so I just went back in and got those instead.
I was 5400 in line, and started about 12:00:45 (by my phone). I didn't get any of the events that I wanted, but at least all my family got theirs.
