Once again today, comic-con released some tickets, this time 1000. The process wasn’t too bad, instead of going to the registration site (Epic), which was obviously being crushed under the strain of the original attempts to open up the ticket purchasing process. So seemingly comic-con went with Ticketleap.com, a pretty well known ticket servicer of the likes of ticketmaster or ticketfly. A service that processes and handles ticketing for many different venues and organizations. Generally these sites are built to with hold the strain of 50,000 Beiber fans trying to buy tickets all at the same time. Traffic comes in bursts and swells and they are meant to handle it.
So Ash and I had both planned on posting about how you needed to be up bright and early this morning to get online and buy your comic-con tickets. Once again, it looks as if Epic could not handle the load on the servers, resulting in a hilarious feed of twitter hate and even some enterprising folk who made this:
Keep track of updates on comic-con’s twitter feed or do as I am and endlessly refresh a site to check out what error you’ll get.
