It would be interesting to know the latest time that someone was able to click the button and successfully purchase tickets.

The button showed up on my page about 10 or 12 seconds late. (According to the world clock). That's why I got no ticket. I'm not totally crushed. There are still sales and eplaya friends and unexpected surprises. I'll see you in the dust.

I clicked the button the second it appeared at noon. Got put in the queue with an estimated wait time of 20 minutes or so. Then it jumped to over an hour. Then it said the queue had been paused. Then it got below an hour, started jumping down in increments greater than one minute per minute, got down to 16, jumped back up to over an hour, jumped back down to 40 something, eventually went down until it was my turn. Then I waited maybe five minutes before I got redirected to the ticket page. Plugged in my promo code (thought I already did that?). It was only offering me a quantity selection for the donation item and saying the other two were sold out. Hit the green buy tickets button anyway. Back to the queue, front of the line. Then back to the ticket page again where it said all available tickets were currently in other people's baskets. Hit green button again. Actually got an option to select a quantity for the individual ticket. Selected 1 and hit buy again. Back to ticket page saying all tickets are in other peoples' baskets. Clicked green button again. Quantity available again. Hit green button. Finally got through! Ticket secured.

I think they should go back to the lottery, i was on at 12:00.3 and no tickets no pass, and now they are for sale for 1k online.
If burning man really what’s to fix itself just put a name on the ticket of the buyer, and checked at the gate, so no scalping on tickets, if you can’t make it return to ticketfly for full refund, then the ticket is resold at face value.

@playalynn, that has been a part of the process for ticket onsales for many years. Long before the sellout there was wailing and gnashing of teeth as lower ticket tiers sold out (and server hell dragged the ticket buying process into an all-day event), and after 2011 it's just been a numbers game. Demand is greater than supply, and so some of those who are hoping to get tickets aren't able to do so. 2012 was the worst year (demand was roughly triple), and this year the runner up (demand for the Individual Sale was roughly double the supply).

I'm leaving this thread open and encouraging those who were successful to post about their excitement and (if they care to share) talk about their playa plans. Once we stop seeing new posts from people who got tickets, we'll lock this thread up (as we did with the Directed Group Sale).

More info about the sellout can be found here.

I know it's sort of annoying big-brother style garbage, but I would really be in favor of nontransferable tickets for the main sale--or at least for a major portion of the sale. ID checks at the gate would suck, so maybe this is a horrible idea, but it would be nice if the people buying the tickets had to be at the gate.

I did not click prior to 12:00. Calibrated my watch with several sources prior to trying.

Got a question on vehicle passes.

If you purchased only 1 vehicle pass during the pre-sale (maximum 3 vehicle passes per person), are you able to go back to purchase the remaining 2?

Not if you still have the pre-sale link and code. Vehicle passes still available there.

Congrats to people who magically got the tickets.

No one in my small group got tickets. Four different attempts all clicked green button as soon as possible at noon.

I will consider STEP but registering last year did nothing for me. OMG did work, so I will try that again. I'll look to the community also.

It does feel like this everyone click at the right time thing is sort of hype-y and unnecessary. I feel like a ticket lottery would have accomplished a similar objective, and would have saved people time.

Does not work meaning? If the individual sales vehicle passes are sold out, does it mean the presale too?

You can also enter the sale from a button at the top of the ticket page

This here was on my e-mail it says click this link , it never lighted up and ended up going to ticket page a few sec late. It should have said copy and paste this to your browser . Dam this shit .

Will try Step again this year.
Thanks , do you know how to turn it on , im on yahoo.com and cant find anything in the settings

This is what I get when I click on my presales link. This is to the comment that there were vehicle passes left in the pre-sales queue.

So unless there is another way to get in.

Is that based on Burner Profile registration or on today's server hit numbers?

I know I was in line before one of my friends, yet she got her ticket in under 15 mins. I still had a 45 min wait when we were offically notified that tickets were sold out. WTF? I guess it has something to do with our connections?
