Main Sale

Post by trilobyte » Wed Mar 23, 2016 9:30 am

Today is the Main Sale, which was open to anyone who registered between noon on the 16th and 18th of March. There are 30,000 tickets available in this sale, see the ticketing page or the FAQ for more information about ticketing. We're testing out a new ePlaya chat room, which you can access via the menu button at the top or clicking this link.

If you haven't already read my tips & advice for the Main Sale thread, you may want to check that out.

Feel free to post your enthusiasm and excitement as well as your success or failure in the sale below, or post about it in chat. Whatever you do, do not post your unique promo code or any of your account details on the message board - and if you're successful and want to share a picture of your computer screen, please make sure not to reveal your ticket order number or personal details. Good luck!

How do you know if you are in the waiting room? I keep clicking on my link and the page I get is exactly the same as the one I got when I clicked last night....

Try switching browsers, Chrome may have a problem, but IE is getting through (so says Reddit).

I merged the 'in the queue' thread with the main sale thread. Glad to hear you're in, and good luck!

For those who may have visited the page early and triggered the 'invalid code' error message, navigate away from the page and clear your browser cache... then give it another shot. Users in chat are reporting that it resolved their issue.

I'm in the queue. For what it's worth, I'm using Chrome on a Mac, but I don't think it matters. I hit the link from the ticket email at 11:30 just to see what happens and was placed in the waiting room with the "The sale will start soon. There is no need to refresh this page. You'll automatically be advanced to the queue." message and the pulsating green icon. I'm currently in the queue, it just moved a bit. We'll see what happens. It's 12:12, everyone who will get a ticket is already in line.

closed Everything.. went back to the burner profile page and BAM .. first shot.. no wait.

not telling everyone to quit the waiting room .. but it didn't work for me


Hope you all get tickets!! good luck

My little walking guy isn't even half way across. I'm not too concerned if I don't get a ticket.. I'll take it as a sign to say "fuck it" and just focus 100% on my regional (I lie.. I was going to focus 100% on my regional anyways.) I didn't want to bring my big interactive art piece all the way down there anyways (I lie again.. I probably wouldn't bring it down even if I did get my ticket. I'm building it for my regional.)

Good luck to everyone still in line, and congrats to those who've already got their ticket.
