I think you should definitely be fine to get into the Hall if you start at that time... by the way, were you able to score GoT autographs? I've always wanted to try the autograph lines but the lottery thing puts me off a bit to the idea...

Yes, we definitely scored autographs and it felt so very worth it. We've attempted it three times and we've got autographs for each time (Arrow, Game of Thrones, True Blood). The lottery method seems to be pretty fair for the first big group in line, I think they put the winning tickets on top of the baskets to not disappoint the all night campers. That being said, we have seen about 2-3 people pull a losing ticket, so there's always that chance. It's seems very low in my opinion, and WB handles their autograph line very smoothly.

I've heard horror stories of The Walking Dead autograph line on the exhibit floor handled by AMC, where people have tried for 3 years in a row for those autographs and failed each time. The majority of the tickets are losing, and they toss the losers back in the basket over there. This doesn't happen in the WB line. We've got autographs every single time and there's always great choices.

Having Star Wars at the end of the day is good for no one. For the people who want to see the panels before: you're battling people who are camping out for Star Wars in the afternoon. For the people who are in Hall H to see Star Wars: you waste your day in line/in the Hall instead of enjoying the rest of the Star Wars activities that day.

Yeah, anyone who has Star Wars as their #1 priority will be giving up all of Friday and probably all of Thursday as well. That's just... a lot.

Worst decision ever. It needs to be first thing because it's the one everyone wants to go to. At least it would give more of a chance for people to get into GoT and WD if the room clears a little.

Well, this is the worst possible news I could've gotten. I may have to reconsider my priorities since I really don't care about the rest of Hall H that day. I do like GoT but it's not really a must-see.  At least with the insanity that was the Marvel line last year you also had WB, Legendary, and then DC TV afterwards.

I am so sad that Star Wars is scheduled late in the day.   I was planning on braving the hall H line but this may be crazier than anything ever plus it would wipe out a lot of Thursday and all of Friday.

The only people happy about this are possibly those people on the floor, as this will guarantee that Hall H will be packed with 7,000 people all day long (so none of those people will make it to the floor that day and maybe even the end of the day on Thursday, yuck).

Yeah I think at this point they're doing this on purpose, scheduling the most popular panels at the end of the day. They're probably trying to spread out the attendees to ensure less lines for other rooms and less crowding in the exhibit hall.

I'm not saying there will be a lot, but I do think some TWD and GoT fans will leave after their panels and open up some room for people to still get in the Hall.  Of course that still probably means a long wait in line outside for much of the day Friday just hoping you can get in.

It'll still be the people that camped out thursday that'll get those few spots. So don't plan on rolling up friday morning for a shot at star wars guys.

I do believe CCI/the studios do this on purpose, but not just to relieve congestion. To them, the late day panels are probably just to build the hype leading up to the prime time spot, which will end the day with a bang and leave a lasting impression

I really hope you mean Friday morning ...
