Still ended up SoL on Saturday, which makes me go... What's the point of the other days? Especially if you don't live in NYC or the area.

Reading their volunteer info I came across this no refund notice:

"If accepted into the NYCC Crew Team, you will be provided a Crew Badge

There are NO REFUNDS if you purchased a Ticket for NYCC prior to being selected as NYCC Crew"


That's been their policy for a couple of years, at least since 2015 (and maybe earlier).


The funny thing is that I complained on various NYCC-related Facebook groups, including one reserved for current and former volunteers, about how I thought this was an unfair policy, and the general consensus was that I shut the F up.  Apparently nobody seemed to have a problem with having to go through the work involved in selling their tickets, which technically you're not supposed to do.

We're about 75% sold out of Sunday tickets and 85% sold out of Friday tickets. Don't wait if you want 'em! #NYCC

Got in fairly early and bought our Sat badges. I really miss being able to buy a 3 day badge.

If they still have tickets available and no one is presently buying them, why wouldn't they?

I'm not sure how or why it sold outbday one last year but has tix this year unless people got confused by the moved up timeline from last years sale? Or the required verification immediately of all tickets thus complicating buying groups?  Anyone?

I think it is a combo of many things.
1. Scalpers - Scalpers had 14 days to sell and Fan Verify a person, though I am hearing about a ton of websites selling tickets that are likely already fan verified.
2. Date - It probably is earlier and people in NY like to wait
3. Single Day Tickets - By removing the 3 and 4 Day Option RP got what they wanted. People only bought the days they absolutely wanted to go, namely Friday and Saturday, since the price was raised for the people that used to buy 3 and 4 days tickets. Also it's a combo of things here, if you are an out of towner and coming to NY likely you want to experience NY and sight see. I live in NY so I take it for granted but many people like to experience NY which is in of itself a tourist attraction; I have seen friends who live elsewhere do that when they have come to NY in past years, but in years past the buyer would still have just bought the 3 or 4 day pass now they just buy the single day that they know they want to go to the con. On the other hand if you are a native New Yorker maybe you can't get the time off for Thursday and Friday so they just buy Friday and Saturday and live with that and do other things on Sunday since the cost went up, where as in the past you would have bought a 3 day.

RP did say that they had been continually reducing the number of 3 and 4 day passes sold each year, but since they got rid of them people which also raised the price for those people they are now forced to choose what days they want to buy and thus they are more than likely just buying the two most popular days Fri and Sat.

Again these are just my musings on it.

also to add to that, I still believe they will eventually sell out of all days, just going to be a drop slower.

IIRC they had sold over 80% of Friday tickets on the general on sale date but I do not know where they are on Thursday and Sunday
