can someone screenshot the lottos, i have press so not sure we can see them all but am curious

Also press, am only seeing panels. Nuts.

Interesting in that they did away with the groups, and you are only allowed to pick 5 total between panels and signings.

Also, you are supposed to select in "priority order", and it says you can't change the order to go to the next step, so I'm honestly afraid that if I go through to see what all is available, I won't be able to enter.

What do we think are the odds that a friend can put us as a +1 if they win?

I entered my Friday lotteries and then went back to the main page of lotteries, and it allowed me to re-enter everything and submit. Doesn't seem as strict as the writing implies.

Edit: after you've entered all four days' info, they ask you to confirm it all. I assume you can't change anything after that.

That's good to know, thank you!

So, it's asking me to enter up to 3 friends. The only friends I have going to NYCC are here.  ;D :-X :'( LOL - Does this mean you get a higher chance at being picked if I piggy back or if someone else piggy backs as 1 of the 3 friends?

Last year you were allowed to put in your friends after you won the lottery, so putting them in during submission is new.

I figured it increased your chances because if you wanted to see the Constantine movie, but didn't get chosen and a friend who put your email down as one of their 3 friends and they got chosen, you'd still get to attend.

You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login in that regards yes it increases your odds, i thought you meant does it increase or decrease your odds to include friends for your submissions. I misread/misinterpreted what you wrote

It occurred to me that part of the reason for asking for guest names is to avoid 'double winners'. For example, I want to take person A with me to a panel. So I enter and Person A enters, each asking for 1 guest. But what if we both win? Then there are 2 wasted spots, because we're only able to use 2. And we might 'scalp' our extra guest spots.

But in the new system, I enter and put Person A's name, and Person A enters and puts my name. If I win, then Person A is probably disqualified from winning, because their name is already listed as a 'winner' for being my guest, and vice versa.

So this new system, while annoying, should theoretically make it easier for people to win (at least a little easier) and hopefully prevent some of the 'after-market' ticket exchanges that likely go on.

The whole system has gotten weird, now that most of the most desirable panels are at other venues. There are some panels at the Hammerstein or MSG that  will probably fill up faster than most of the main stage panels would, even if they didn't require early badge scanning. (I'd rather scan badge/enter lotteries for those locations than main stage, since that would eliminate the chance of walking over there only for it to be full)

I agree, the majority of panels I want to see are at Hammerstein and MSG.

For the panels at Hammerstein and MSG, such as Star Trek: Discovery and Outlander, any advice on when to get in line?  Are the lines like SDCC?

I don't know how MSG will be for Marvel but I never had problems for walking dead.  I don't imagine Star Trek Discovery will be a problem

I never had problems with Hammerstein but then again the panels I chose may not be as crazy,.
