San Diego Comic-Con 2014 SDCC

We would first like to thank everyone for your patience while we conduct a lot of tests on the new registration system. We know how frustrating purchasing a badge for Comic-Con can be and while the sheer number of people who would like to attend far outnumber the badges available, we really do hope the new system will make the process less aggravating.

We have heard suggestions from many of you, as far ranging as utilizing a fee-heavy corporate ticket broker to returning to the old days of mailing in an order form. While all of the options considered had their own pros and cons, one thing was certain, the everyone-push-a-button-all-at-the-same-time model has been extremely problematic.

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.

Our hope in creating a randomized system is to alleviate the rush to purchase badges, which inevitably causes technical issues or prevents attendees from purchasing badges at all.

Again, thank you for your patience and for sticking with us! We are still in the process of load testing the system and preregistration for eligible attendees will not occur this weekend, February 1. Keep a close eye on this blog for additional tips and details in the following days.

I guess in the future one is going to have to get creative in order to attend the show.

I go every year and I have to say the new system is BS. Not fair to the people that haven't had a chance to go. Real shame.

The problem with the Cons now is that they are becoming to pop culture... Now it's cool to be a 'Geek' or a 'Nerd' etc. and I blame media for it all day.

Are they still going to be doing that? That's what they announced at first, but then that new message is unclear. Is that message meant for the people left over after 2013 badge holders have gotten theirs?

I have to say I like the idea of tenured attendees being taken care of. I've gone 22 years in a row and the idea that I might lose out so someone who's not even a comics fan that's just going to try and see celebrities, or to a kid who just wants to add to the crowd of the mass media area and play video games on the big screen and grab the free promo handouts, really pisses me off
