And I have done that really annoying thing. If I did not immediately see what I was looking for, I went ahead and...
Well, you know.

Thanks for the link Fishy, my settings no longer let me see "new posts".

It only allows me to see posts from my FB friends at this point.

I'm going to stay over here and occupy this thread about the tickets. The tone over there is kind of serious... No room for cut-ups around the "1 Postcent".

Yeah, I'm already finding the hand-wringing and the eminent death of the event somewhat amusing.

I guess "ticketgeddon" trained me to find these particular whines, funny.

So, Mods, please don't move this to the ticket forums or kill it altogether. I need a safe place.

No really though.. once the initial shock passed over.. I don't really see what people are freaking out about. All this means is the same thing that it always did: Plan early. Allocate funds early. Don't wait until the last second.

I think the main confusion that I'm seeing here is that people are misreading things to think that there will only be ONE lottery.. which.. I could see being freak-out-able.

There will be MULTIPLE lotteries.. so just get in on an early one! What's the big deal?

Tickets to Hawaii require no lottery for the same time frame next year.

Let me see if I understand...cuz I'm slooow sometimes...under the lottery system if you want a ticket and enter (that is pay the ticket price) you win. So, like if there are 10,000 tickets in the first lottery and 9500 people who enter the lottery...don't they all get one?And if there are 10,001 people who enter...one unlucky person will have to enter the next lottery...
aren't the chances of being that one unlucky person for several lotteries pretty slim...like almost non-existent...so that as long as ya plan...YOU WIN!!!

I like the odds of this game! :lol:

It's the uncertainty. I could do everything right, be willing to pay the highest tier on day one and still lose out to someone in a lower tier on a later date because of the randomness of a lottery.

Although, at the very least, this has drastically increase eplaya membership.

I heard through the grapevine that they are going to release tickets in bursts of only a few thousand each time, and determining the winners by the first letter of their last name on their submission for said lottery.
This process will continue every week until they reach capacity.

Sounds fair to me.

Ah, but as an S, I can only hope that they run out of tickets in the Ts or Ws and not in the late Rs.

So, I should change my last name to "X"? Because there are way too fucking many "B"s. :?

I can think of worse things than publicly having a symbolic orgasm every time you say your name.

I always thought an orgasm sounded more like a can of beer being opened.

I think that sound starts with a P.

I just read my JRS and musta missed the bit about alpha selection... but it all sounds cool to me...i did read that there will be a lot of opportunities to get tickets.
I think if someone is prone to freaking about the process they'd probably be freakin about any process. Like most things in life, these things have a way of working themselves out regardless of how much effort I put into freakin beforehand...so I'll chill...throw some more pennies in my BRC fund...plan my Aquaman costume...eat some fudge... 8)

OK, yeah, Hawaii... Yeah, why don't you all go to Hawaii this year? Yeah. Virgins, really, it's overpriced, the t-shirts are almost $75... and it's really not that much fun...

...go to Hawaii...

We could do the Drowning Man next year. We build the city off the coast of Cali or Hawaii and at the end, we blow up his base and watch him burn and sink.
