Personally I believe individuals successful in the presale-Davinci should be ineligible for subsequent sales. Similar to the low income sale rules, even based on registration? Weren't all the Davinci applicants successful?

Eligibility or not, it's easy to game the system anyway. Just have friends try out for the main sale and if they get it you can sell the presale tickets. Even if you take a 50% loss on the presale price, and still had to buy that main sale ticket at face value, you're still ahead of game than if you went to BM on that presale ticket. The worst thing that can happen is that you have to use the presale tickets.

It's also not like people who try to buy a ticket through the main sale can't also try out for the Low Income tickets either. Then again, that program is a joke in general and shouldn't be used for comparison.

The interest on those pre-sale tickets may be already taking it's toll on some...

Well this one wins the prize as the most obnoxious ePlayan, surpassing even our previous top problem child. I smell a millennial - uses message boards as search, easily upset, first person shooter at any and all comments, and entitled as F*.

Congrats to saintly mods....

It's a pity you will miss your first burn. Yet you might still participate in good style by gifting your tickets instead of reselling them.
