There has been too much confusion about face value.
I want to reiterate the spirit of this ticket forum.
It has always been a place for season seat holders to move tickets they can't use and for buyers to get a deal.
Recently the spirit has gotten out of hand for the buyers IMO.
I have rarely seen any tickets here going for "scalper" prices.
However there have been a few buyers here that will call out anyone who is even a few dollars over the face value even if they don't know the circumstances or exactly what the real price is. In other words I feel they are just calling them out because they can't get the tickets for pennies on the dollar.
Ticket prices for Kings games have gone up 20-40% in the last few years not to mention that this season the playoff tickets are almost double what was paid last year. Many seat holders are feeling the pince, have lost money this season and are just trying to recoup the costs.
So please be reasonable when calling out people for charging more than what you have been accustomed to paying. The demand for the playoff tickets is much higher than the regular season when some games the tickets can't even be given away. This is not the case right now so I feel most here are charging what is fair face value. If you see a problem just tag the post and let the moderators deal with it.
