Anyone have any luck on the OMG Sale?

Post by pedroescobar » Wed Aug 02, 2017 12:13 pm

Grabbed a vehicle pass which I'm glad I asked if anyone in our camp needed one before. But No luck on the tickets. My wife is still waiting but I doubt she will have any different luck.

Was able to reach the ticketfly counter four minutes in. They were sold out by then.

Somehow I managed to get in, and got a ticket! Woohooo! But I didn't even see an option to select a vehicle pass, which I'll need - did they sell out before tickets did?

I clicked the link just 35 seconds in and by the time I got to the ticketfly page it was sold out

All the prep for nothing, I can't imagine how hard it is for people not in the US with plane tickets etc.

What a bummer :cry:

Did y'all refresh the page once you got in? It said no tickets available initially, but I refreshed several times, and 3-4 times I was able to select a ticket, only for it to tell me they're all in carts, and to keep trying.

So I kept trying, and eventually was able to add a ticket to my cart :)

Yeah I refreshed the ticketfly page over and over when it said 'none available'
Now it says sold out.
I'm not willing to spend $800 on someone's spare ticket so looks like I won't be burning this year, super sad

Curious how many will camp in gerlach with signs: I will beg for a $425 ticket
Anyone taking offence at anything in my posts - tough. It's only an internet forum. Stop being overly sensitive. you are shallow and banal. Eplayans who spend hours a day posting need to make in person friends and mentally masturbate less.

Congratulations to HoverDave, and anyone else who managed to get through.

With 2K tickets in the sale and significantly higher demand, it's no surprise that tickets sold out within minutes.

My camp mate scored a ticket in the OMG sale, I think he's the first person I know personally to have ever gotten a ticket in OMG. Those tickets are rarer than an old Maserati...
Sooner or later, it will get real strange...

There's a few people on Reddit claiming success, too.

Does anyone know when OMG tickets generally ship? I've got WAP for Monday August 21st, and am a little worried about the tickets arriving on time.

I managed to get one for a friend who's at some doof in Slovenia without access to any communications. So she doesn't even know it yet. I got one for myself in the Burner Bus Plus sale. I was surprised how much easier they both seemed than the main sale

Does anyone know if an OMG vehicle pass will work with a presale ($990) ticket?
