    Yeah I still have no notification. I'm thinking that's bad but who knows.

    Seems odd that a random drawing wouldn't update everyone immediately.

    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.

    It is what I consider the most annoying quirk of it. It impacts when there's reserved/ga options too. Alot of people (me included) go for Show1 GA #1/Show 1 Reserved #2, but other (more clever people) will often go Show 1 reserved #1, show 2 reserved #2. The same "bug" due to the dual lottery creates opportunities for some people to get a 2nd pair before someone got a single pair. I guess the same bug can cause other issues.

    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.
    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.
    All ten people put in the same exact prefrence order
    Yes night 1 first - its been explained.
    Yeah quite the solid explaination, thanks. Why would I think some people winning both nights at Fenway while others lose both nights isn't fair? What's wrong with me
    For people who misunderstand how this lottery works, yes I do feel bad. I personally entered Night 1 first because I knew it would give me a better shot at winning tickets to both shows, but also that it meant I might lose both. Felt like Night 2 was obviously the less popular option and a guaranteed win as first priority. I've spent my time complaining on here but honestly I have nobody to blame but myself.
    I actually understand it perfectly, my point is I don't understand how people who entered the same priority as me ( night 1then night2) can win both while others lose both. Regardless of how you spin it, it isn't fair. Done bitching for now. Have a great day everyone. Congrats to all who won both fenways and also to all who won all 4 shows!

    My tickets for Fenway still say ENTERED but it says total charged $376 as well. No email confirmations yet.

    My preference was Fenway 1 first choice and Fenway 2 second choice.

    you seem to be a winner, but a winner in transition. dont sweat it.

    I LOST that one too. With my luck in these things I might have won, saw the show only to find out I had no way back to this planet. Although that might not be a bad thing depending on what planet they played

    I'm sweating the second Philly show more than anything. Need a pair for that show over everything.

    Fenway is still 6 months out.

    Dude, the merch lines for Uranus were horrible last time. Besides, much less demand for Pluto (maybe because it's not a planet?). People that put Uranus first and Pluto 2nd may be out of luck. Should have gone the other way.

    I think they don't want to contact people until their credit cards go through. The notifications then go out in order of when the entry was made. Usually I make my final decision the day of the lottery and it always takes a while to hear back. This time I made my decision about 30 minutes after the announcement and heard back within about 30 minutes of the lotto ending.

    Logic says you're guaranteed both of your first two choices, but I'm in a similar situation and I'm not believing it until I see it.
