I cannot give any specific information at this time.
Look for an email from the LLC shortly.

We WILL look at whether there is any breathing room to this policy before we engage the final implementation. However, this decision was reached with a significant number of dependent variables and won't be easy to change.]

They haven't announced it yet, to my knowledge. Sometime at or before the end of the month I suppose.
Yea I don't like the one-ticket-per-registry option either, but as was mentioned in an earlier post it was the only way BMOrg could minimize further hoarding. They KNOW that people who double or triple-registered will have X many more shots at getting a ticket through STEP. Think- if someone triple-registered to increase their odds and didn't make it, would you rather give them another shot at getting up to 6 tickets, or up to 3? Which option increases your odds (however slightly) of getting one through STEP? It's a damage control maneuver IMO.
Unfortunately because of this succession of decisions by BMOrg, there is virtually no way for couples who played by the rules and lost the lottery, to get two tickets aside from the black or grey markets. I understand their motivations for the decisions they made after the lottery results, but it is a hard pill for couples to swallow. I don't spite BMOrg for trying different ways to come up with a fair system (and later to salvage the event as they envision it via direct ticket distribution), but it is hard to be positive about an event when the seemingly-simple concept of selling tickets gets this political and venomous.
