Winter Fantast 45 registration will go live at some point between 7pm-9pm EST (GMT -5) on Thursday – January 21st. There will not be an exact time given (reasons listed below).Please note some important details:
If you keep hitting F5 before registration opens you are just going to get locked out of the system for 30 minutes and miss it. DON’T DO IT!!! Registration will open in the time frame stated – we will make an announcement once that happens. Not only does spamming F5 prevent this from happening (as it crushes the server and Dave cannot update the registration flag to “Open”) it will eventually cause the server to mark you as a DOS attack and will lock you out. DON’T DO IT!!!
Putting something in your cart does not hold it for you. You must COMPLETE checkout to guarantee you have a ticket to something. So if you want it really bad put it in the cart first and checkout. Then go back for other items. The more you try and stuff into your cart before checking out the greater the chance that somebody else is buying it out from underneath you.
We are not the Gen Con registration system. We will never be the Gen Con registration system. I have no intention of dumping the insane money it would require for us to even think about being the Gen Con registration system.
Our high demand events will sell out REALLY fast. Some who really want to play in them will not get to. We try to have as many tickets to the cool things as we can but demand will always vastly outstrip supply. There are still plenty of awesome things to do at the show and you never know when somebody won’t show up to that really cool thing you wanted to do and you get a seat.
