If you got drawn for a 1.01 dollar ticket, that's a deal

What they were saying before hand is that first tier would be drawn first. I don't know why top tier is being awarded first. Perhaps all the pleas for it to happen that way made a difference.

it makes some sense to draw tier3 first.. gives those in the lower tiers slightly less competition for tickets available in their price range.

It's got to be automated. So all night and into tomorrow...

Man I sure hope so, I've got a ski race review tonight and my phone gets pretty crappy service there so I'm going to have to focus on whats being said there and avoid thinking about tickets.

To keep myself busy today, I'm teaching myself how to make homemade chicken pot pie. :P Otherwise I'd go nuts! :D
Food of the gods! Now I'm tempted to do the same. I have made only two before (okay, one was a salmon pot pie).

The chicken pie had lots of garlic, and lots of crimini mushrooms and . . . lots of everything else. :lol:

Drawing the third tier first makes the most sense to increase the odds of people who can only afford those tickets. I do wonder if the knowledge of that would've changed peoples' strategies, and if the drawing order was purposely suppressed?

I would think that at this point if you have card problems they'd give you a chance to fix the problem. I'd hope at least!

No ticket email yet? Stressed out and anxiously checking over and over again? Sit back, give it a little break and enjoy some good tranny porn, that'll take the edge right off!

I was awarded a $390 ticket! But not from BMorg, from my buddy in town here. "I got your back!"
He was just awarded his tickets and out of the three of them they have one extra, and they said it is mine if I do not *win*

Now all I am banking on in this *game* is a possible lower price tic.....Honestly I panicked a bit and put in for one $390 when I shoulda put in for 1 $320. So now I just cross my fingers for a cheaper tier.

I read on the Bman facebook page that someone was awarded a $240 already?

So if you are knee deep in some type of Burner community, you'll probably find an at cost ticket pretty easily. Already proof of all the extras in the pudding.

I can pay my friend now so his card doesnt have to rack up interest for my ticket, and we're close friends so I can wait til June and we'll still be hangin' around causing riff raff on the streets :mrgreen:

Wee!! 2 tix @ 390! 8) The emails must be going out pretty slow, I was holding my breath for some time after I saw the first people on this thread get theirs.

You are more likely to forget some essential playa gear than you are to not get a ticket.

Relax!

Take a slowly deep breath, now slowly exhale. . . Repeat as required.


(Yes, I know that does not help you know about your ticket, but it does help.)

I'm curious to see as the tier awards come in if they are drawing from highest to lowest tier. (If I were a betting man, I'd say that that's what they will end up doing. And that will just piss me off even more than this cluster fuck has already.)
