    Comic-Con 2014 Badge Sale Info: No More 4-Day Badges | Collider

    OH GOD THIS IS GONNA BE AN EPIC FAIL!!!!!!!!!!

    Comic-Con is shaking things up for 2014 badge sales. No more 4-day badges—only single day badges will be sold, although you can consolidate a Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday badge into a 4-day badge on site. Additionally, you can only attend Preview Night on Wednesday if you purchase a badge for all four days Thursday-Sunday.

    I'm not sure how this makes much of a difference.

    Because you used to put in request for best available. And the ticking clock of fail that was their system had mixed results at best. Now...you have to a la carte each day...so the chances are gonna be astronomical that you might get all 4 in the short window you have. Add in, if you are trying to make group purchases and there is sooooo much potential for heartbreak that words cannot describe.

    Ah. Okay. Now I get it.

    Well, hopefully, they also modify the process to make it easier to choose or prioritize days.

    Yep...cause every time they have 'fixed' it the results have been worse. They really have outgrown their ability to handle it as a mom&pop organization.

    SDCC 2014 Badge Prices and Policy Changes Announced – Single Day Badges Only [UPDATE 1]

    [UPDATE 1] And there seems to be some misinformation regarding the increase in cost for Preview Night. Last year, a 4-day with Preview Night badge cost $175, a premium of $25 over the standard 4-day badge. So with CCI charging $35 for Preview Night this year, that’s only a $10 increase from last year’s cost.

    Next, regarding the policy changes for pre-registration (what is that? Check out our FAQ), buyers will be able to buy badges for two additional individuals who qualify for pre-registration (i.e., attended last year), granted those individuals have all signed up for Member IDs, and the person purchasing the badges has the Member IDs and last names of everyone they are purchasing for.

    This might be ok if this is the direction that they're going.

    This is my first time entering pre-reg. When I enter the link, I'll be able to choose all days without having to lineup again, right?
    That's the intent with the registration enhancements they are implementing. They are still testing them now, hence the delays.
    That last one is from a mod on that site so...we'll see.

    ....and time to calm down.

    Comic-Con 2014 Registration Update #4 | Comic-Con International: San Diego

    If you make it to the front of the line in the EPIC Registration waiting room, you will begin your badge registration session by entering your Member ID and last name. You will also select the number of people you are purchasing badges for (up to 3 maximum, yourself included). On the following page, you will see the badge grid above. Here you will enter the Member ID and last name of each individual you are purchasing for, and then “validate” their information. Once a member is validated (ie: they are eligible to purchase), you will select the desired and available badge categories for each person by using the simple checkboxes.

    For those who want to attend the entire show, simply check the Preview Night box, and all other badges (Thursday through Sunday) will be automatically checked for you. Just one click to get your 4-day with Preview Night option! However, if you do not want to attend Preview Night, you can select the days you wish to attend as individual items. Keep in mind that you may not purchase Preview Night as a stand alone option. If any one of the four single day badges are sold out (Thursday, Friday, Saturday, or Sunday), the Preview Night checkbox will not be available for purchase.
    So, basically, not much different than before except that people don't have to requeue if they only wanted Fri and Sat.

    If the tech issues are the same as they've been before, it just looks like some clarity was needed.

    One step forward, ten steps back.

    EPIC Waiting Room Should Level the Playing Field | Comic-Con International: San Diego

    Working closely with the team at EPIC Registration, Comic-Con has decided to introduce a randomized waiting room. This decision was based on the number of suggestions we received and countless hours trying to find the fairest way to implement changes to what has been a problem plagued process. During 2014 badge preregistration, prospective attendees will be given a time frame in which they can log in to the EPIC waiting room prior to the badge sale. Once the badge sale begins, everyone who is inside the waiting room will be randomly assigned to a registration session. Your assigned registration session is not tied to the time you entered the waiting room. There is no advantage in arriving early.
