@Schwarttzy - Scarcity's a bitch, unfortunately.

Re: Question about STEP - matching # of tix...

If you registered for two, you're eligible for two but may only buy one if you wish. But if I registered for 2 tickets, and _one_ becomes available in STEP, do they wait for a second to become available and offer them both to me, or what?

Re: Question about STEP - matching # of tix...

I'm hoping (tho I have no proof of this) that if 1 ticket becomes available, but the next in line is a 2-ticketer, then the system will hopefully: 1- wait for a second ticket to become available, and then offer both to that STEPer. If (s)he only takes one, then the remaining one goes to next person ...

Yeah, when you show an ID and get the ticket, that should also be the only PERSON that can enter the event with it...

Not sure if the ticket site is using this or not, but there's a simple checksum calculation that can be performed on a CC# to verify it's at least a valid type of number. It doesn't verify the account is real, but it would catch a simple typo when entering a real CC#... Hopefully the service is at l...

Re: Which Tier are you gonna pick for the lottery?

The right way to do it is a bit complex but is as follows. You can still specify you will pay the tier 3 or tier 4 price. But you compete in the tier 1 lottery. If you win there, you pay the tier 3 price and there gets to be another winner in the tier 1 lottery. For example, if there are 2,000 tick...
