Got my ticket secured a couple days ago. But watching TG go through the crash, kick repetition, makes me think the ticket system is totally fucked!

It's an unfortunate side-effect of running any kind of first-come, first-serve sale on a high demand event. Even TM & LiveNation struggle during these types of events (it's one of the main reasons Burning Man went with a random selection process last year).

Hang in there, and good luck to all those still trying to get through.

I'm not in the queue... Sounds pretty exciting though.

Eplaya has been a little slow for me as well this afternoon.

We're on a separate system, but also experiencing more traffic than is typical. Nowhere near our busiest (that was just before the 2011 event), but enough to make the Amazon cloud creak a little.

"First Come, First Served," online does NOT work. Especially when theirs a 200% certainty, that the numbers WILL overwhelm the servers! If THAT is their future game plan, they need to, at least offer tickets to past burners, before the main sale! May I remind you, WE ALL make BRC!! Especially, through our wallets! One may not approve MV's, but may light a road or save a life, anonymously.

And I wish they had again this year. I didn't get one then either, but at least it's because I didn't get drained, rather than my computer being fucked up.
