I think some people are equating 390 as tier 1 and tier 3...

hooray!!!



If this is true it would seem that they are drawing from all tier's simultaneously...? Saw a post on the facebook page where someone said they got 1st tier tickets as well.

It occurs to me that since there are more $390 tickets than $240 tickets, we are going to see more $390 confirmations overall no matter what order they're drawn in.

Excellent point. I have to think about it before I say it properly, myself.

Anyone know if they're still drawing tickets and sending out emails? I'm on the West Coast (it's 2:20pm here), and haven't gotten anything yet.

And what you're seeing is such a small representation of the total that it's in no way accurate.

Word from the ticket team is that everything continues to run smoothly. The hardware's not on fire, the screens haven't melted, and I don't even think they've had to break out the hammer… ;)

Congrats to all the winners so far, and good luck to those still waiting!

They expect the drawing, or at least the emailing to continue into tomorrow.

Though wouldn't you imagine that we would see more tier 1 and tier 2 than tier 3?
But if they are drawing the tier 1 then the tier 2, in order it would make since that we'll see more tier 2 later.
They might be simply drawing all the tier 3 while they draw tier 1, because their are more tier 3.

They originally stated that the tiers would be drawn in order. But if they're were more tier 1 and tier 2 tickets than are available, it would make since if they jumped right to tier 3 since folks that approved up to tier 3, wont have a chance at a "left over" tier 1 or tier 2 ticket.

All speculation of course (obviously), but something to do while we wait.

Hey Fellow Canadians

Seems despite requesting tickets to be mailed to Canada, the confirmation reads Will Call. All the Canadians that have confirmed tickets I have corresponded to, report this happened to them as well, no charge but not the method of delivery requested. Keep an eye out on your confirmation.

I think you can go back now and change the method.
