    After the last two years in group C, I finally got group A tickets. Praise the Dark Lord!

    Yep, got close to the nillers last year but not close enough...and can't convince the old lady, or even myself, to potentially endure that kind of day again without the As...

    I got 2 for group A! I even fumbled with the captcha twice. Apparently I don't know what mountains or rivers look like.

    What's funny is the very first browser that I got through the site on that didn't crash is still in queue, all the others either made it through or said tickets no longer available. I don't understand how etix organizes these things or lets something sit in queue for that long. Seems like it would be more taxing on their site...maybe not.

    Group D became available and got them - I'm in - stoked. I wasn't going to go for anything below C but couldn't resist not going. Got these at about 12:45 btw.

    My 3 year streak of grabbing a vanilla variant has likely come to an end, but in for group D. This year I'll be one of the folks crowding (not being in group A) the north line for entry so I can hang with the rest of my group for the morning bottle share.

    What was the last free for all year? The year before they started fencing off the property?

    The very early part of C had it, if I recall. By the time I got in (late C) I got one of the last BADL's

    Last year is a terrible example though because of how much of a shitshow their line handling was.

    Had B's going in with A's.. E's were let in 2 hours before their slot. It was ridiculous

    Year nine goes down for Mr. Houston, though this year I had to be bailed out by a friend. I don't think I've won my own ticket since '14. Sucks.

    On an aside, I really wish they would be more random with the releasing time. Maybe release a thousand or so at one time and scatter it at different points, like 12, 3, 5, 8 and 11. Or allocate it over a week, with each day having a different time, limiting duplicate orders.

    Man, I'm so thrilled to have an opportunity to get Handjee (should I be lucky enough). Maybe then I'd have enough to flip it along with Handjee '16 for one those of what seems like 50,000 threads with FT: Fundamental Forces.

    I got in right at 11, site crashed. Had 3 devices between my friend and I while going through the crowler line at Weldwerks. Took about 20 mins but I scored a group C. 6th year and counting. Between scoring a DLD tic and being at the Weldwerks anniversary party, it's been a phenomenal Saturday

    Given the circumstances this year re:BA variants, there is going to be more occurrences of this without question. People playing dumb like "oh, I didn't know I couldn't go in this group." Hopefully they have no tolerance for people jumping groups ahead.

    I got a group A ticket early, and then for shits and giggles went back and bought a group C ticket. If they're purchased separately, and both have my name on it, can I still bring my buddy? So long as he's checked in with me I don't think it should be a problem.....

    Here's to hoping there's no BS technicality they're going to pull
