I did. But thank goodness for the group.

Two out of four of our computers were shut out.

Four sessions, only one got in to purchase 4-days for three of us. Member from our group was able to purchase a 4-day for our last family member. We’re so thankful for FOCC.

Question: How are people still doing multiple "sessions" when you now need to put in the unique code to get into the waiting room - and it kicks you out of your other session if you put in the code more than once??

If you have multiple people in your group who are eligible to participate, they will each have a separate code to enter the waiting room.
I had four sessions running, only one got in for 4-Day badges.

Well, my family is 3 of us + 2 friends we go with every year.  My wife and I do our thing w/5 different codes (so we essentially could buy 15 different badges total).  That means I could get a 'hit' w/my CCI code and then get a hit a minute later with my son's CCI code.

For General Reg. it's even easier if you know people who have a Comic-Con ID but aren't buying badges that year which ups the number of "sessions."

Codes from other people.  Either someone is the designated buyer (like when my brother is unavailable, he gives me his code), or friends who aren’t going give them their codes.

You can only have one session per code, but you can run multiple sessions with different codes. You either use different computers, different browsers, or have your browser sessions set up so that they don't share cookies (e.g., chrome "people".)

For example I managed my session and my son's on the same pc, mine in firefox and his in chrome.

I set my alarm for 8AM, but woke up past 9.... luckily my friend was on and he got in the room at 9:06AM. All days and preview were available.... unfortunately, between us two, we only had enough for two days each (Fri + Sat).
Good thing we decided on those days instead of Sat and Sun because it looks like we'll have a good chance at getting Thu and Sun on the next round... if we get in.

OK, I thought that was correct; A unique code from a qualified returning registrant is still required for each of these "sessions".

Thx

Got 4 days for myself and 3 for my wife by mistake since we’re traveling. Got in with her code after Saturday was sold out to add Thursday and it wouldn’t let me. This member ID already has badges.

Strange. I guess wait till open registration.

I had 3 in my group and only one of us got in. But we got in early enough to get all week+ Preview night. It's the 2nd year in a row with preview night for us. Lots of prayer and luck! Glad its over with though...the stress is gone.

4 codes running in my family, one code was able to get all days with preview night, the other 3 codes shut out completely.

My three accounts completely shut out.  But both myself and brother-in-law were able to get 4-days with our buying group.

Thanks to my awesome buying group, I got Thurs-Sun. Hope I can return the favor during open reg!
