Based on my experience, you should get them early next morning (Friday).  They close at 2 pm Pacific time.

You’re totally right; we all got them first thing this morning!

This tweet makes me uneasy.  I'm sure this has been debated countless times over the years.  I understand the argument, but if everybody jumped in for one open registration, Epic's servers could crash.  Click photo to enlarge.

Since there are already far more people trying for open reg (and many of us who already have badges are still going to log on open reg to help others out), removing pre-reg is unlikely to make the servers more susceptible to crash during open reg. What is just comes down to is how CCI wants to deal with the supply/demand imbalance.

The thing is that from what i know and seen, there are so many different badges so to speak and the place can only hold so much traffic that is why they have any possible offsite promotions. i kinda use metaphor and see badge sales like fishing, u toss ur line in water and wait for fish or a badge and if u get a pulled in to buy then u have a chance to catch so many at one time if others dont take any or all of them before u do. so u either catch a badge or just go home empty but know u can always enjoy any swag and events around the con.

LOL-my husband, and avid fisherman, would approve of this metaphor! I am happy that someone in our boat snagged us a couple of 4 days (Thank you again [member=283]Devorah[/member] and [member=460]Andrew Costa Mesa[/member]!)

.... Or maybe drummers: CCI is prolonging letting drummers in the door as long as they possibly can?  :P :P

[member=380]perc2100[/member] how did i miss this slam on drummers? LOL
you know i worked in the music industry right?

It is every bit of self control i can muster to NOT post durmmer & musician jokes....
