    Fan Event Tickets Gone Instantly (possibly faster than instantly)

    Earlier, someone had mentioned they noticed a Fan Gathering for FFXI listed on some ticket website. I was actually skeptical it was official/real because it hadn't been announced yet, but the poster noted people were buying tickets already.

    More recently, SE in fact did make an announcement confirming it was an official thing.

    Today, they announced ticket sales (I also got an email about it around the same time). But the tickets were already sold out.

    Ummmmm... really? Did anyone here get tickets? Why did they not announce ticket sales when they were actually available?

    They likely made reservations. lol I won't be attending the event though but if they do it again then maybe. Hopefully more closer where I live.

    Make the community great again!

    It is reservations, so anyone with a POL ID could have done it. They said they will reconfirm closer to the date so I wonder if you need to reserve thru some other means.

    update: RSVPs are now available. In fact, it's free.
    apparently it just wasn't set up yet, I guess?

    So If I reserve a Fan ticket, do I still need a ticket to PAX East itself?

    I don't think so. While the exact location hasn't been listed yet, I think it is off site from PAX. That being said, passes for thursday do not sell out, so you would not have any trouble getting one. And you should totally go because PAX is awesome.

    Unless I am reading something wrong on the official website, I could have sworn they were taking reservations first and will send emails to Active/Inactive players (Active Players will have priority) when a venue is selected.

    I assume the link to the article when you click on it from the POL homepage. Though the information page is odd because it says make sure to select yes or no for any guest who is coming with you but if you go to the registration page it doesn't give you that option it just says attendees guest name and date of birth as options and you have to fill in their DOB even if you have no guest going with you.

    Just registered. But for you cosplayers out there, some sad news:

    While we'd love to see your creativity, we would like to ask you to refrain from wearing a costume for this specific event. As the meet-up space is limited, costumes may make it difficult for you or others to navigate inside. We appreciate your understanding! If you're visiting PAX East, we'd love to see you wear it to the booth!
