Here's hoping scalpers won't be able to sell their tickets and pax will be less crowded.

This was BS. I was there within the first hour and couldn't get a three day pass. I went to ebay and there were already many people selling them for outrageous prices. Scalpers did this. Took a whole day last year for three days to sell out while this year in 43 mins? That is off indeed. It also took months for any single day to sell out last year but in less than 24 hours Saturday sold out so I was forced to go to Friday and Sunday only after I decided I would just pay the extra money for single days. I find it absurd that a three day pass costs less than two stand alone days. They need to fix that next year.

Not being a twitter user, I was more upset they posted the link there 45 minutes before posting it on the official pax registration site. Us dummies who were only looking at the site never had a chance to get a 3 day.

They sold out so freaking fast because of the way they were handling ticket sales. I could only get Friday and Saturday badges. I waited at their website for 20 mins until I saw the link on Facebook. I hope they don't sell tickets like this again. 60% of those 3-day passes went to scalpers.

They should have had better badge availability, this is the first year in 3 years where I was on the site during the first 15 minutes of the sale and still didn't get a 3 day badge. I just bought all 3 days individually but it sucks because a lot of attendees only go Friday or Saturday and I had to take some of those badges just because they decided to skimp on how many 3 day badges were available, not cool PAX.

The 3 day passes actually sold out in 45 minutes, which is a little more descriptive and crazy than "less than 24 hours after going on sale".
