Default New York Comic Con 2015 tickets

Just scored an Ultimate VIP!
The wait was brutal and sucked just as bad as last year, but the results are obviously worth the wait.
Good luck all!

How many SM members usually go to the NYCC? I may need to get some tickets.

So here's my observations about the whole Reed queue thing.
It's crap.
Out right crap.
Just to see what would happen if I opened 3 browser on three systems from 3 different locations at the same time, if it would somehow actually use your cookies to "keep you place in line"
Obviously one worked, but I think it is pure dumb luck.
Why you ask? cause the one is still in the virtual queue and another finally brought me to a page to buy tickets, but at this time only single days are left.
ABSOLUTE CRAP
Also the people who buy them just to sell them suck.
I am a full bore capitalist through and through and believe in making money, but I am almost tempted to say that the way they do it for SCCC where you need to provide ID to match the purchasing name is required to pickup your badge on-site.
Too many people who really love this stuff gets jacked for boatload of money to get the tickets on Ebay afterwards.
There are people who are posting the Ultimate VIP at 1250 already. And you know the reason he/she sucks? Cause you can only buy 2 and he/she is selling 2; That may have been mine.
So a re-cap:
Reed virtual queue: CRAP, and a fraud
Flippers: Buttholes, but I can understand from a money perspective.
I could have bought 2 and flipped one, but choose not to; Maybe that makes me the Butthole in this one!

ARGH...!!! I wish I would have tried your method. I went down to one and it went WHITE SCREEN on me so I had to hit refresh...and it's been over an hour...

NYCC should take a page out the Burning Man concert ,ethods. Each ticket has a serial number. If they see the ticket has been res-old somewhere, it's deactivated. You can google a pretty good story about a scalper that tried to turn a heavy profit and lost out.
