    Except it was less than one second before all tickets were reserved for people in the queue.

    It was thirty minutes for those ~5000 some people to get through the queue and check out. Not thirty minutes for those tickets to be claimed. They were claimed instantaneously. Stop grasping for straws.

    I thought there was no sarcasm on the internet? Like no delays at Kennedy?

    Three blizzcons attended, then I tried the virtual ticket last year, as much as I enjoy standing in line with 15,000 people, I think I will watch it again from home...

    Once you are at the checkout screen, pay attention to the yellow box area with your cart, ticket quantity, etc info. Immediately below that is a "Change Quantities" option which you click on, are able to input the quantity you want and then an "Update" button. You must hit the update button for your cart to register the change. Once it does, there you have it.

    The queue system has always been about HOW QUICK you can GET INTO the ticket queue, NOT about how quick with how every many tickets you get into the queue you are. Is it the perfect system? Probably not, but if you want to argue about how effed up of a system it is and how patently unfair it is, I submit as evidence in support of my argument..... the 2008 Blizzcon ticket sale process:

    Yep, that quantity drop down takes away the seconds you need. I learned that the first ticket batch few years back. You just have to remember to change it at Billing, not confirm order (which you cant).

    second batch sold out

  11. #91
    They will always sell out, we're not exactly dealing with a populace of players like we were back in 2005 where it was almost able to be held in the local high school cafeteria (and looked it). It's now big business, so a third round will probably be coming soon enough.

    No, there will not be a third round. Attendance is limited by venue size. I can assure you that they sold ~30000 tickets as they normally have in the past few years. Blizzcon is not a profit-maker for Blizzard, just a public even for the purpose of PR and announcements. If they were to increase attendance, they would have to book an expo center like the one in Las Vegas. This would create other issues. Anaheim is convenient because Blizzard can run shuttles out of its campus and have all-hands present to staff the convention. In Vegas Blizzard would have to pay out the nose to use local personnel as event staff or pay to bus/fly their own employees from Irvine.
