Wow, what a price increase. Now $195 for all 4 days. I think that was close to the special access 4 day Vip pass from previous years.
I need to somehow get Pro or Press.

Assigning NYCC Tickets

How do I individually assign my friends and family to each ticket I buy?

You must include the email address used in Fan Verification to assign each individual ticket. Each person must be Fan Verified and there is a limit of one Ticket type per person per day. If your friend or family member did not fill out a Fan Verification profile, you will not be able to purchase their ticket.

When do I assign my tickets?

You will assign your tickets during checkout. Have your friends’ and family’s names and email addresses that they used when Fan Verifying handy! You’ll have a few more minutes added to check out, but having them on hand will help you check out quickly.

How long do I have to assign my friends and family to the tickets I buy for them?

You must assign your tickets during checkout so have their Fan Verification details handy (name and email address).

Doing my research on the changes from last year, here were the ticket prices from 2016.

Some of us already did.  Last year 4-days were sold out by the time I got to the front of the queue.  Since I wanted a 4-day, I had no choice but to buy single days.  $75 I shouldn't have had to spend.

Only giving 48 hours notice on when tickets go on sale is really annoying to me. I understand wanting to curb scalpers but i don't get how this really does anything to accomplish that. 48 hours is plenty of time for real scalpers to mobilize. I think the only people who giving only 48 hours notice impacts are the real fans trying to get tickets since now we have to basically keep every weekend free until they decide to have the sale. And some people do work on weekends. I do and if i know in advance i can take the day off but i can't take the day off if i only get 48 hours notice.

we've had buying groups for NYCC in the past-- I'm sure we'll have one again this year.
