    Won reserved seating for both Wrigley shows. Had the second night as the 1st pick, and night 1 as my second. Followed by GA in same order. Psyched! Now just have to wait. Hopefully the weather doesn't disrupt like last time.

    I would just like one question answered. I was under the assumption that initially this lottery system was set up to even the playing field and make it more fair, my question is, how can people be winning both nights to Fenway while others lose both nights?

    I think it's because when your name is drawn you get all the shows you selected if there are still tickets available.

    Waiting for this TBD to update is about as bad as watching yesterdays Super Bowl half time show. Well... maybe not that bad.

    Really? I thought it was a good show. Not great, but not bad. Certainly not this bad.
    As they say in the movie Airplane! "I haven't felt this awful since we saw that Ronald Reagan film."
    Do you know what it's like to fall in the mud and get kicked... in the head... with an iron boot? Of course you don't, no one does. It never happens. Sorry, Ted, that's a dumb question... skip that.

    I am the biggest asshole, I wanted reserved seating for Wrigley night two, and I literally noticed right after the draw closed that I clicked GA. AHHHHHH. We were planing a summer trip to Chicago, I am utterly heartbroken,

    You can still get tickets. Don't give up. The show will be amazing.

    I won Wrigley night 2 reserved. First choice. Second was night 2 GA, which I knew was a long shot. Either way I will be at Wrigley again! Too bad work obligations get in the way of more Wrigley and both Fenway dates

    Congrats Dave!!!

    I realize selection is based on the lottery/chance but I wonder if notification is based on member#. I have won in the past and usually the last to know. I'm also 510XXX which is relatively new compared to many on the boards. I still haven't heard for this round yet.

    I don't think so. I'm 76,XXX and I still haven't received anything yet.

    It does not work that way, it's just that whether you win or lose one show has no effect on if you win or lose another show.

    That would make sense, however the only problem is I put in for both fenways and lost on both. And I put it for them immediately on Thursday.

    Won both Fenway (1 and 2 priority)

    Now, based on that, anyone who has Fenway 2 as there first choice, they should win?

    I would just like one question answered. I was under the assumption that initially this lottery system was set up to even the playing field and make it more fair, my question is, how can people be winning both nights to Fenway while others lose both nights?

    I guess hypothetically is that one show ran out of tickets in round 1. So you could have people that made the exact same choice. Chose the same concerts as #1, and one it got it and the other didn't. The both chose the same #2 and it was a little less popular and that person won again but the other person didn't.

    It doesn't check if you won tickets to another show on the same tour (unless it's ga/reserved on the same night). It simply goes by the entire bucket of everyone who chose as #1, fills as many of those as possible, if it goes to round #2 it randomly fills as many as those as possible.

    So it's possible to get double shafted if the tickets run out in round 1 if you made the exact same choice as someone else who double won. For shows in the same city, I suppose it would be nice if they could make sure fan members won a pair of tickets for that city, before people got both. I suppose that involves more complex programming of the lottery system, not sure if they'll get around to that. Unlike GA/Reserved they actually do want fan members to get the remaining tickets.... The lottery system works fairly good but it does have some quirks.

    No go for either Fenway for me. I'll be at one for sure though.

    that's what we've been saying for awhile now......

    SHOW COUNT: (123) 1990's=3, 2000's=53, 2010's=67, US=89, CAN=13, Europe=15 ,New Zealand=2, Australia=2

    Only if there are still tickets remaining once your name gets drawn.

    I would just like one question answered. I was under the assumption that initially this lottery system was set up to even the playing field and make it more fair, my question is, how can people be winning both nights to Fenway while others lose both nights?

    The explanation is in this thread in a few spots, basically night 1 the 1st priority requests exceeded the amount of tickets available. Some folks with night 1 as 1st priority lost, all with priority 2 and beyond lost.
    Night 2 more tickets than 1st priority requests. so some folks were drawn with Priority 2.

    2 shows are drawn independent of one another. So if you entered for both and had priority 1 as 8/5, you had a chance to win 0,1 or 2 nights, if you entered both in reverse priority (8/7 1st), you won night 2 but lost night 1.

    What's the lowest someone has pulled a win from Wrigley 1 reserved? 2nd preference?
  • melpumelpu Posts: 44
    Argh! Lost for both home town shows, and not for the first time
    A drag, because Fenway, like most ball parks, is not meant as a venue for a music show.
    If you don't have decent seats you may as well hang out in the surrounding streets.
    Ok, I admit it, I'm bitter. Need a moment to recover. All's fair in love and the PJ lottery.

    No that's not it.
    Night had a much larger percent of 1st priority requests than night 2.

    SO sad...lost both nights at Fenway....it's a little upsetting to me to see so many people get BOTH nights and I didn't get 1 :bawling:

    What order did you put your choices?

    Still, sucks you didn't win one show.
  • Fenway 8/5/16 heard around 2:45EST. Went to Wrigley in 2013, I hope it doesn't rain this time

    So has ANYONE won both Fenway shows by ranking the first night #2 and the second night #1?

    My situation, but are still Entered TBD
    Me too and a friend as well. No answers for us yet.
  • I'm in for Wrigley.
    GA night 1; Reserved night 2.

    I know many are still waiting to hear...odd that they don't release it all at once,, but I do not presume to know what's best, nor do I want to be the one who would have to be in charge of all this. Yikes!

    I saw some people claiming they got Wrigley 2 reserved on their 4th preference. As for your question....i think 2nd preference for Wrigley 1 reserved is the lowest?
