I want to purchase my badge in the next few days with priority shipping for my badge, however my concern is that over the next 7 months I will be moving at least 2 times. Thought about shipping my badge and tickets to a friends house that is also attending but not sure if that will cause issues on their end. Can I constantly update my shipping information on Gencon's website? Or am I doomed to the Will Call line this year?

When are you planning to arrive in Indy? Will Call lines vary considerably based on time of day.
Honestly, probably easier to spend 1 hour in Will Call than risk missing your badge, etc. The lack of stress alone is probably worth it.
As you know, the line moves pretty fast at that time of day.
There are people who swear by one or the other but, honestly, you're going to spend that hour one way or another: leaving work early (possibly losing wages) to wait at home to sign for your badge...or standing in line at Gen Con, pretty much stress free in this situation.
YMMV...but seems like Will Call is a good fit for your circumstances this year.
How far are you moving? Will you be in the same general area? If so, check with your local UPS Store. Mine offers a service where they will sign for and hold a package for $5.
I strongly suggest thinking about using Will Call as others have suggested.
