Were you able to get yourself passes, Projectile?
Yeah, was able to get 4 single day badges.

Schlepping out to Town and Country won't be too much of a hardship, seeing as I'll be skipping Preview Night. Well...provided I get a decent hotel assignment that is.

Here's to hoping. A lot can happen in a year.

Word!!! I lost out on Preview Night too.

I'm going to take a nap.

I was trying right at 8 but I couldn't get the page up. Finally got in around 17K. My goal as always was a 4 day with Preview but instead I was able to get Thursday, Friday and Sunday. Saturday just sold out before me but 2 out of the last 3 years (including last year) did not go on Saturday just to take a break and it's so crazy! So I was OK with that. Turned around to get my Brother in-law his and Friday gone!

I'm with Sylent, I would have rather did a first come first serve at the Con and give up the time than have to stress on this.

My friend from Jersey got in at 2179. He got a 4-day with Preview Night. *shrugs*

I came into work just for a better connection, but all the good that did. I clicked the link right at 8 and it sat there for 2 minutes and timed out. I scrambled back to my personal email for the page to hit the link again and waited another 2 minutes. When I finally got through, I was 12,000th in line.

I'd like to know who voted for this process over onsite registration. I would have gladly sacrificed one night of sleep to not deal with this nonsense.

I feel you. I just read Facebook's SDCC page and it seems everyone on there got 4-days with Preview night. It's frustrating and disheartening, especially because of the timeout error, but like you, I'm going to try and not think about it. As I said before, at least we'll get a bunch of WB bags.

I'm going to try and get some work done now since I'm in the office.

My group got the 4 day WITHOUT preview night. This is the first time in 11 years I will not be attending preview night.

The last time I didn't get a Preview Night badge I ended up just being able to walk right in anyway. May give that a go next year.

At this point my only real concern is where I'm staying, and being able to get all four of my day passes printed at once, so I'm not standing in that line every morning.

Man, that really sucks. Sorry to hear that. I would have thought they would give folks that have attended the event for that many years in a row priority registration and automatic 4 day/w preview night badge.

I got to stop thinking about it.
I don't know if being at worked helped out that much because I've reading on ComicCon's FB page that people were at home and able to get ahead in the line. I believe it was luck of the draw.

But I may try again during the general ticket sales to get preview night.

Hotel is definitely my next real concern. Although where I ended up this year wasn't all that bad, I still preferred to be closer to the event because when you line up for anything every minute counts.

Recived my confirmation and bar code.

The email also notes you can pick up all you single day badges on Wednesday at T&C between 3 and 8 pm.

Quote:
If you purchased multiple daily badges you may pick up all of your daily badges at the location(s) designated for your earliest daily badge indicated above. Daily badges not picked up by the badge day will not be honored for an alternate day - No exceptions.

Received my barcode today too. I wonder what preview night will look like next year and how many people will be walking the exhibition hall that day.

Preview night won't look as good without all of us there.

But, I'll try again to get preview night when passes are available to the general public.

Come general sales, let's do like I read so many others did and all get in the epic line and help each other out. Hey, if I'm that lucky bastard that gets to the front and assume they allow multiple purchases, I'm happy to hook you, Sylent and whoever else needs what days. Should have done that this time but did not realize it would be like this.

Anyways, nothing I can do or worry about until the next sale. I'm moving on ... until the next sale then I'll stress again! Like Sylent said, would have gladly gave up a night's sleep to not worry about this madness!

Source?

I really wouldn't doubt if this happened. WC made a considerable amount more money just by being in Anaheim. No biggie. I'll just go to Emerald City again.

I would probably go to Anaheim for WonderCon since I wasn't able to go there last year.

Wondercon in Anaheim was pretty good. Seemed smaller than I imagined.

I had heard that CCI was going to combine Wondercon and APE in San Fran and do a new show in Anaheim as an extension to SDCC.

Can't recall where I heard it, though.

Comikaze is in Sept, though. Anyone else going?

That's awesome news. However, with passes getting more difficult to obtain year after year, who knows if I'll even be able to attend.

Yeah, the only Hotels released were Airport and I believe Hotel Circle. The downtown Hotels will be released at a later date.
