Got ours too. We were trying on the best computer in the house to get it, and ended up ordering on one of the laptops, lol. It just didn't want to load up for some reason. >.< Either way, we got section 103 (we hope). Does anyone know any way to check and see which seats we get? We hoped to get front row center, but with all of the issues, I think we're probably further back than front row. x_x.

I don't think you can know exactly which seats until you pick up the tickets at con, but I was told to email registration@ACen.org if you have any questions about your tickets. :)

Thanks!~ <3 I'll keep that in mind. There's an invoice thing that we received and a confirmation number, so I hope it's alright. They charged me the full $90 for three tickets so I'm assuming that meant that there were no issues with our login names.

Had a thought, why not have autograph sessions held for the people who bought tickets for the concert, or at least give them preferential treatment for autographs because if the autograph session is an hour after the concert is over, people will have been lining up long before the concert folks get back the convention.

I agree with Taiyaki, it should be first come for the concert attending folk, it wouldn't be very fair for people who didn't actually pay to get first dibs on the signing...

So what happens then for those of us who want to get kalafina's autograph and couldn't get tickets before the server crashed because we had jobs, school, etc that didn't allow us to? We were willing to pay, but since we may only get to see kalafina at the autograph session, why should we be pushed aside for those who paid and went to the concert? That doesn't seem fair at all. I really hope they don't do some preferential thing like that. I could see that causing a huge uproar.

(here's to hoping there are still tickets left when the site goes back up)

There are still tickets to buy when the server gets back up. So buy them then. Real concerts in the real, cold, harsh, unfair world work like that and even then majority of people who go don't get to see the performers at all.

Because it's unfair for concert goers to miss their chance because they WENT to the concert. There is no middle ground on this. Someone's going to be upset by it.

It's sad but true, I feel for the others but you will be hard pressed to explain why those who battled through and got (and paid for) tickets should be excluded from any possibility of getting autographs because they were at the show and couldn’t get in line soon enough to get an autograph. Can you envision the mad dash through traffic down River road after the concert? Oh the humanity. Please ACen, explain?

The only thing not giving ticket holders first access to the signing will do is lessen the chance of people being willing to pay extra money in the future.

What makes non-ticket holders more special than people that paid with actual money to see them? If you can't get it together enough to get tickets between now and the con (excluding the current downtime) you must not have wanted to see them that badly. Them's the breaks.

Probably the "fairest" way to do it would be two sessions. One for concert ticket holders, and one for everyone else.

Tomoe- it wouldn't just be a mad dash down River Rd. It'd be a mad dash to cars/rooms/friends to get bags that will inevitably not be allowed.

Has the autograph session been confirmed to be 1 hour after the concert?

That was ridiculous, it nearly made me miss class, and if section 103 is overbooked and I don't actually get in, I will be FURIOUS.

Does the system even cross check if user have more than one ticket? My friends ordered the tickets for my group and there are no usernames on the invoice.

If it gets overbooked, I'm gonna be pissed. But typically selection areas like that can tell if the section is sold out, so I'm hoping they didn't screw up THAT badly. When buying the tickets, it did ask for both my and my fiancé;s usernames, so I think everything went through okay. I bought for section 103 as well.

Guess what? It got overbooked. Nothing can ever go right for ACen, can it? This convention is a joke at this point.

What section did you end up getting moved to? They threw me over in section 102 now.

I got my tickets early this afternoon. I was really worried though and I am glad I made it before the site went down. I am in the balcony since I didn't want to have to stand the whole time. Maybe we should do a meetup before the concert? Who is in with me?

There isn't any stand space in the Rosemont theater, it's all seated.

I got into 104. I'm pretty happy with that, actually. I was pretty scared of getting stuck in 101 or 105, I really hate sidestage seats.

But just. That this happened is really pretty gross imo. ACen, you're a high profile convention. You need to have your act together when it comes to this sort of thing. Site downtime is understandable, but the overbooking thing is not.

We were sent emails with confirmations of what sections we got once they sorted the mess out. I definitely appreciate how much effort ACen staff is putting into correcting the situation, as irritated as I am that it even happened.

Ah, thank you so much! I got the person who ordered our tickets to check her email inbox for the email. Section 104 for us. >o< The question I now have is how up-front are our tickets? Is it based on how soon we get to the box office?

I got an email stating 102 which will be fine but It appeared very generic, and I'm really not sure if that's directed at me (personally) or if it is just a blanket statement that some of 103 is now 102

It is customized for members of a particular section that were sent to a particular section.
So it is for you, but with the volume of emails our team is processing, I do admit, they look a bit generic. Posted ImagePosted Image Sorry

I'm definitely eager to find out exactly which seats we'll be getting. I know you guys are all super swamped with sorting the current mess out as it is, but do you have any idea about when we'll know what seats we got? I don't need anything super specific, I'm mostly just wondering if we're going to find out before we pick up our physical tickets at the theater or not (and if not that's totally okay).

Ugh, I got moved from 103, to 102, I suppose it could be worse, but yeaaah...I would have liked to think that they had that set up in advance, but honestly, I was worried.

Well, at least we didn't pay for close seats and then get stuck in the back though.

Just got confirmation from Phillip on FB saying that you need to reply to that email with the usernames of the people you bought tickets with. I've done so, but I haven't gotten any confirmation of that yet, though I presume that won't come until after they've manually fitted us in.

Just commenting here to make clear for people that were confused. That email is kind of hastily written. (for obvious reasons)
