Formal Ball tix?

Post by scarly » Fri Mar 11, 2016 7:01 pm

Hi! So I want to register for the Formal Ball, and I noticed that the link for ticket registration isn't working? It says the server is undergoing maintenance, but does this mean the tickets are sold out? I'd really love to get one!

Thanks!!

Tickets are indeed sold out for online purchases (but that has nothing to do with the error you got)

they're only available at the con now on Friday an hour before the "Formal Dance Lesson". Emphasis on the lesson part because some people can miss that bit ^_^

Ah, that's unfortunate. I'll try to get some at the con then - may I ask how fast they typically sell out? :)

Tickets sell out within an hour, usually. Your best bet for getting a ticket is to get on line when they first go on sale. Most of the time, and this is no guarantee, everyone in the initial line is able to purchase a ticket. However, I have seen years where we had to disperse the line because we sold out early, as well as years where we had extra tickets well after the dance lesson ended. I cannot predict the behavior of our attendees, so I strongly suggest getting in line as soon as you can, to maximize your chances for a ticket.

I have a feeling the answer to my question will be no, but just in case...
i know it said somewhere only one person may purchase a ticket before the dance lessons, but myself and my husband will be at rehearsal for the death match at the time lining up to purchase tickets would be happening. Is it allowed to have a friend purchase our tickets under special circumstances like this or no?
Again, the worst answer I can get is no. But id love to have the chance to go except everything lined up not in my favor this year >.<

You may have two friends purchase tickets for you. The tickets are not coded to a specific badge name, but they are still only available one for every warm body in line to purchase them. So one friend will not be able to buy multiple tickets.
