    I agree with ya'll here... if they have 1000 GA tix available and 10,000 people have them as their #1 choice... how is it possible for someone to win these tix as one of their "2nd or 3rd choice's"... wouldn't they draw all the tix until they are gone with just the people whom have them as their first choice.... Here is another senerial... someone told me..."maybe its set up that the 1st choice people have their name in the lotto like 50X each, and 2nd choice is like 20X, 3rd choice like 10X... and so on and so forth" which to me would be the only way it makes sense for someone to win their 1st, 2nd 3rd and 4th choices... and other lose all 4 of their choices... it has to be something along the lines of that... specially how some people win GA at shows with their 5th choice...sure it was a 1 in a 100 shot... but they hit it...

    "For each show we will randomly draw members who have made that show their #1 priority. If any tickets remain the system will randomly draw names of members who have chosen that show as their #2 priority,"
    -- some folks got both Fenway 1 & 2...
    So wouldn't that imply everyone who had night1 as their priority would have won their tickets before those who had it as their 2nd choice would have been selected (and vice versa?)
    Or am I just confused :bee:

    Posted this earlier but guessing people arent reading 30 pages of info:
    FENWAY - So the explanation(until proven otherwise) is if you put in for night #2 with FIRST CHOICE you WON as there was enough tickets for everyone. Night #1 had more demand then tickets so some people lost. Then the lottery moves to second selections for #2 as everyone got filled with first priority - once again NOT enough tickets for everyone for night #2 with second selections. The lottery doesn't look at if you won tickets with first selection its just comparing 2nd selections to 2nd selections so its possible for a person to win the lottery twice and others none.
    if there was enough tix for everyone...than the odd's percentages wouldn't have started dropping... they would have stayed at 100%... and I did not see any odd's at 100%... wouldn't that mean that more people were asking for tix than tix allowed...

    That scenario is not happening

    then simply explain to me how people win Wrigley GA with their 4th choice and other get shut out with their 1st choice... And I'm not saying I'm correct...but their has to be some sort of a system here as this situations are hitting... ps... I tried to start another thread with this...but I'm not that computer savvy... or I gave up too easy...

    Yea I never got shot out till the lottery, really, any show or combination, but things change, I have. Your kids are not the same from1-5 yrs old as they are when they are 25 yrs old. Sometimes it's not so bad. I'm not bitter, I don't expect anything xept news letter and single really. It's nerve racking and fun too. I'm sure their fans can travel for shows not not as much when we were younger so that comes into play too

  • Still waiting.

    However I've seen and talked to 3 people now who did NOT. Get wrigley reserved 2 at spot 3 which is confusing since people have posted on here they got it at spot 4.

    Finally got the email. Shut out of both Fenway. Crap.

    So sorry...There goes the theory that the late TBD's won. I am a nervous wreck.
    Seems like that is correct. But it seems like more late tbds won than lost.

    Fenway 1- Won, Fenway 2- Lost. Live 5 miles from Fenway and over 20 years in the 10c for what its worth anymore

    You got tickets to a show, are you seriously complaining right now?
    Not complaining but membership is not what it used to be. I want season tickets at the 50 yard line to the Patriots, or half court for the Celtics. You know why I cannot have them? Because the people with those seats have been season ticket holders for 20 or 30 years. That's how seniority works in 99% of life. I understand people who joined the club late think they should have a fair shot, and they did once the 10c put in the 2 random rows up front. Now it is 100% random, which I do not think is fair to people with low numbers/long standing memberships
    Your membership is $40 per year. The cost of those season tickets is in the thousands to ten thousands per year, (as a Cubs season ticket holder, I know) and inevitably those people lost thousands of dollars per year while having those tickets in lean years. So not a good comparison.
    Yeah the membership pays for a presale, not an actual ticket.
    That was not always the case. I never got shut out of any show until the lotto system started. My 10c number is low enough that I would always get seats. Back before the online days you filled out a form with what tickets you wanted in the mail and then they started with the lowest member numbers and rewarded tickets until they ran out.
    There are more members now.
    They play less shows now.
    They announce tours is smaller legs now.
    They play smaller venues now, for the most part.
    There is aimply more demand for tickets now.
    Back in 2003, the fan club was still relativelg small. Its massive now.

  • njnancynjnancy Northern New JerseyPosts: 3,450

    Are the TBA's that have been waiting being denied or are any getting tickets. I've been TBA all day and have given up hope.

    I was notified at quarter to 8 and got 1 of 2, my first choice - fenway - good luck!!

    It looks like wrigley has more available seats as more are getting both nights.
  • Just got first choice at Wrigley. GA. 8/20.
  • Count me in!!! After waiting all day, I got tix to Fenway night 2. So you can add me to the Fenway night 2 theory...
    Fenway 2016!

    I agree 100%, however my opinion is that the people who have been around the longest should have first shot on the tickets. I am sure most with a 10c number of say under 300xxx would agree and anyone over 500xxx that would argue for a lotto system. I think the lotto system started when people with high 10c numbers were not getting any tickets and were questioning why should they be members. i just think that somebody who joined 2 weeks ago should not have the same chance as somebody who joined the club in the early 90's and maintained it.
