Since I used a hotel computer, I got in the waiting room late at 8:51am since it only allowed me an hour.  Also got a message the hotel computer was going to kick me out in 30 seconds due to non activity in the waiting room, so I kept moving my mouse/cursor constantly.  My turn came up at 9:12am.

Pretty impressive, although I hope you had someone helping you.

Nope.

Just me. Pretty easy.

Just had to keep an eye on the screens.
Besides, you still have 15 mins once you got in.

Just couldn’t go to the bathroom. Wife and kids went to a early birthday party.

Anyone feel like this year was a little easier to get tickets as more people was disappointed of this years comic con and dropping out.

I've read tweets from many, many disappointed people who have failed yet again to secure tickets during returning registration, and those who missed out completely. Some only got a day or two and are hoping to get the other days during open registration. So no, I don't think it's gotten easier.

I guess I am just basing on the response from this forum.

Not for me, this is the first time ever I didn’t manage to get at least four days. Fingers crossed, toes crossed, everything crossed for Open Reg.

My group of 20ish all got badges, only one person only got a partial badge, so we had a lot of people get in. Of course, one person went off script from the usual buying group parameters, sigh, and then one panicked and when his net cut out when he'd gotten in, andhe didn't immediately give us his code (he was on mobile chat with us) so we couldn't reuse his session. Regardless, we got enough people in to get all 4-days (and some +PN for people who wanted them) sans the one partial badge.

Basically, we were super successful and we'll be adding some newbies for open reg. so we'll be doing general/open reg as well!

Most of this forum have made con friends and work together.  I think we are outliers.  Mainstream media is better for that.

I do love that we seem to be an exception.

Got lucky this year in our buying group and managed to get 4 days. Going to have to try open reg to get PN. Congrats to all that got badges today and good luck to all that will be trying in open reg

I agree, FoCC does seem to be the outlier, with the advent of bigger groups. I'm actually not part of a big group -- I really ought to join you guys though -- but I have helped and have been helped by other FOCC'ers here. Without you guys, I probably would've missed out at least one of these years, or at least not gotten all four days.
