OMG Sale Q and A

Post by Dr. Pyro » Wed Aug 06, 2014 12:23 pm

Anybody have any idea how long from the time the OMG tickets went on sale to people knowing whether or not they got them?

The last ticketless member of our camp got his confirmation at 12:03.

I'm moving this over to Tickets Discussion, since that's a better fit.

For curiosity a fellow in my camp put in for the Vehicle Pass Only sign-up for todays OMG sale (received special code and link for today via email), waited till 2pm to try it, and got a not available/sold out message. So as of 2pm the vehicle passes seem to be gone, refuting theories of an unlimited supply and indicating that they were indeed limited, heh. Not that he was going to buy the pass...we have what we need thank goodness. Good luck to all the aftermarket hunters, next week will see some tickets and passes for sale as plans change.

By the time I had reached the front of the queue at about 12:10, the entry tickets had sold out. Although it wasn't immediately apparent to me, this actually meant that all the tickets were in people's shopping carts rather than purchased, and after repeatedly refreshing the page, I finally got one at around 12:15-12:20 (confirmation email received at 12:26).

I refreshed and refreshed and every time a ticket appeared, by the time I hat the button to buy it, it was gone again, Darnit! I'm glad that method worked for someone.
