ATM I'm at 2217 with 62% of the stock left... I'm going to be mad if losing q time was due to me choosing 5 tickets instead of one, If I'd had known I can change it once I get to the head of the line I wouldn't have bothered with the drop down menu :cry:

Was your friend able to edit her amount of tickets purchased after she got to the front of the queue?

Yeah he did, you could go back to the front page and edit the amount and it would keep you in the same spot in the queue.

I hit F5 and didn't hit the queue page at all. Thought something was horribly wrong for a second. ><

Thank god that's over.

Ugggh D: That is so lame! I was almost sure you would get in.
My guild got all but 1 ticket that we needed, so they are going to be in vent again for Round 2. There will be the guy that needs the ticket, his girlfriend, and they have at least 4 or 5 helping them. I know you said you don't have ventrilo installed but you should totally get in on that! I am going to be out of town so I might not be there, but Vanifae will be.


Grats to you guys that got tickets! Blizzcon is really fun.

I've been looking at airfare to get into Anaheim. Seems the 3 options are

LAX - farthest away but generally cheaper and most flights
SNA/LGD - closer but could be more expensive and less flight options.

Any advice from those who have done it before? If you fly to LAX do you take a cab, shuttle, rent a car to get to Anaheim?

TIA

I flew into SNA, and rented a car, most hotels around there may be willing to bring a shuttle up to LAX, but you would have to check with the hotel.

Oh, and i didnt have to wait in the queue, the button became active for me at about 7:59 mst, got right into the cart, but the other 4 people i had helping got in at 3k, 10k, 18k, and 25k, my suggestion for those is about 5 minutes before, hit f5 repeatedly until you see the button, then click it, no need to select the tickets in the drop down, just takes more time.

And yes, you can change the number in the shopping cart at checkout, i had selected 1, and changed it to 3 upon purchase. the % displayed is the remaining un-purchased tickets, not the ones reserved for the queue, and just as an estimate, since its split 50/50, assuming there is 20k tickets, 10k available each day, if your say <3000 you will have a good shot at tickets, if your <2000 your chances are almost 100%, saying each person in front of you purchases 5 tickets.

Good Luck to those who didnt get tickets last night on Saturday, and i hope the above info helps someone.

I've never tried LAX or car rental.

We always do SNA and then shuttle to the hotel. If you have a hotel within walking distance and don't really plan to go around much elsewhere (or if you have close friends that are already renting a car) then you don't need a rental car. I don't know about parking at the convention center aside from that it costs money, but I would imagine it's annoying.

One year I was at a hotel that was like a 5-10 minute drive from the convention center, and we took a cab in the morning to the convention center and then back at night, each ride was around $15 so it was much cheaper than renting a car and everything we needed (food, basically) was within walking distance of the convention center.

@Gladia: Lucky you! :P I had a friend that was 80 in queue, that was the closest I'd known of so far.
Yeah, that was very helpful information! We should have thought to post something like that sooner. There were people freaking out like "Oh crap, can I change the number of tickets?!"
