Title: When do you think OPEN REG for SDCC will take place ?
Post by: alyssa on September 30, 2019, 02:26:48 PM
I decided to only list dates this year- if we get to early Dec and it hasn't happened yet, I'll create another poll

I voted for November 2... just because that is the most convenient date for me. Which means that it probably won't be that date... ;)

I went with November 16th. No real reason!

I wanted to vote for Thanksgiving but it's not an option. 

It's perfect everyone has the day off!

As per usual, i will be voting 5 minutes after the email announcement goes out.  If the poll is not locked that is.
Title: Re: When do you think OPEN REG for SDCC will take place ?

I picked November 9th, because last year was November 10th.   :) :)

That's my vote too! Since that's how it played out for returning registration by a day earlier from last year.

If it's November 9th, I'll be mid-flight across the country lol. I guess if it's then I'll be paying for wifi access to run the sale for my group. I voted for later in the month, but only because that's more convenient for me.

November 9th makes the most sense unless they are really good this year and go with November 2.

Post by: Andrew Costa Mesa on October 12, 2019, 03:00:13 PM
Last year Gen. Reg. was on November 10, but I think it will be at least two months after RR, so my pick is December 7 with December 14 a close second.

For sure Nov 9 or 16th based on last year's open reg drop and so far seems to be on the same path.

I really hope it's not November 16th because I'll be at Dreamhack without reliable internet (I guess I could stay at the Airbnb behind everyone else and lyft to the convention center, I may have to do that.)

My badges are already set, but I'll be running another buying group for open reg per usual...

I think I voted for November 23rd out of wishful thinking.
Title: Re: When do you think OPEN REG for SDCC will take place ?
Post by: perc2100 on October 14, 2019, 07:23:45 AM
Nov. 9 correlates w/last year's Open Reg. date.  Given Returning Reg. correlated w/last year, seems like a safe bet to go w/Nov. 9

I'd prefer later (I teach HS marching band and Nov. 9 is our last competition/rehearsal date), but at least for General Reg. all I need is PN so a lot less pressure/stress for me (and I still might get a Pro Badge)

If CCI follows the pattern of Returning Registration (and this is a BIG if when you consider CCI & consistency), then it's most likely not Nov. 9th since we would've gotten an email about Open Reg today. I'm basing this on the fact that we got Returning Registration announcement on Monday, Sep 30th for a Saturday Oct 12th sale.

I really, really hope it won't be the 16th, REALLY REALLY. Or hopefully, there are teams playing I don't care about early that morning at the esports convention I'm going to, so I can just arrive late. Crossing all my fingers and toes.

The 9th, I'll be on a flight, but I can easily get flight wifi and manage my group from there.

Last year we got the email 10/31 for an 11/8 sale... so I don't think we can call the 9th one way or the other until Friday.

Then, there are those times when CCI gives us two days' notice.

Can never expect that pre-reg will be like gen-reg. I think they give more notice for pre-reg. I also seem to recall short notice (like 2 days) a couple years back. So who knows.

They want our money sooner then later... the last 2 or 3 years now, gen-reg has been in November. My vote's the 9th... but no later then the 16th.

Mark your calendars!

If I recall, they always do lock it down before they announce. And I seem to recall at least a few times, people registered too late to be able to participate in registration. In other words, there was a (hidden) cutoff date for registration that was before the registration portal actually closed.

That sounds right.  They have posted for people to make a member ID, they usually do that when they are close to announcing the sale.

Except for the fact that the past four years of Open Registration, CCI has given us at least 8 days heads up. You have to go back to 2015 & 2014 to when we got the Open Reg announcement the same week as registration.

Of course, knowing how inconsistent CCI has been in the past, the 9th is still not out of realm of possibility. Heck, it may not even be this month OR next month.

I would not over analyze the spread btw Pre-Reg to Open Reg or when the email was sent too much as it can be 3-8 days.   A better indicator would be whenever CCI website stops accepting new IDs for 2020, Open Reg is right around the corner.

Lol I should have assumed it was Nov 16, since that's the next pokemon go community day. Returning registration was on the previous community day. Instead I thought they might be moving up registration dates based on previous years and thought the 9th.

Apparently there aren't many PoGO players at CCI. I said earlier in this thread that this was why I chose the 16th.  That's even though I first signed on to Pokemon Go right behind MMM at the 2016 Comic Con. ::)
