    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.
    All I know is I've talked to atleast 10 people who put in the same exact order as I did and entered the drawing after I did and they all won atleast one and some won both shows while I lost on both. Sorry still bitter! And regardless of what I hear my opinion is that the lottery still needs improvement.

    What's the lowest someone has pulled a win from Wrigley 1 reserved? 2nd preference?

    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?

    yep..i saw foto of that 4th priority for wrigley 2

    That sucks. Just for reference, it makes no difference when you enter the lottery. You can enter in the first 5 minutes or the last 5 minutes, it does not matter at all.

    As for the other issues...it seems that Fenway Night 1 was the biggest demand.

    So, lets split these 10 people into 2 groups, group A and group B.
    Group A put Night 1 as their first preference, and night 2 as 2nd preference.
    Group B put night 2 as their 1st preference, and night 1 as their 2nd preference.

    So, it would seem that Group B would ALL get their night 2 selections, but not get night 1.
    Meanwhile, Group A....only a few would get Night 1, and some would get night 2. Randomly.
    If you put Night 1 as your 1st, you could miss out on both.

    Just made a change of plans. Instead of hot ass Chicago in august, I'm going to extend my 4 show Florida run, straight up the east coast. Good thing I only paid 90 bucks for that return flight from Jacksonville to NYC. I was at the last Wrigley show.

    the Club gave me lemons, but I made delish lemonade with em.

    When you enter the drawing is irrelevant. Anyone who put 8/5 first and 8/7 second possibly could get shut out, win both or just 1 based on the 1st priorities for 8/5 exceeding the 10club allotment.

    It turns out the way to guarantee 1 show was to put 8/7 as 1st priority (but you would not have gotten the 8/5 show that way), but we couldn't know that for sure beforehand unfortunately because the posted odds don't differentiae entry priorities.

    And the system is definitely not perfect. But its the best they have right now, demand unfortunately far outweighs supply in certain cities.

    Here's the deal:

    If you selected Night 2 first, you definitely got that show but that show only.
    If you selected Night 1 first, any outcome is possible. You could have wound up with both, neither, or only one.

    I am still TBD, but chose Night 1 first so anything is possible as I sit here.

    from what i see around...one thing is sure..odds are talking to members....they tell u whats the best option to score tix,,its really great tool

    I agree, but it only shows so much as the odds are all inclusive of every priority level. For the tool to truly be useful, they should break down the odds by priority level. This would be quite a simple adjustment in the equation used.

    For instance based on what I am seeing, here are my guesses at what the odds would have looked like for Fenway had they been broken out.

    Fenway 1 Priority 1 95%
    Fenway 1 Priority 2-6 0%

    Fenway 2 Priority 1 100%
    Fenway 2 Priority 2 20%
    Fenway 2 Priority 3-6 0%

    *Note - these are not actual odds!

    Yes, you may not get confirmation until later or possibly even tomorrow, but most will get confirmation today at some point. Keep an eye on junk mail.

    Well if anyone wants a second for one night at Fenway- ZERO STRINGS ATTACHED- I'm happy to join you! It's been my dream to see PJ at Fenway since the Theo era (when we ALL thought it would happen!) and I'd LOVE to be among the TC on the field... :blush:

    By looking at your picture, I would say that works better with strings attached ;-)
