Who has entered the ticket drawing? Hoping to see you all there!
So everyone knows, to enter, go into your suitcase and in the upper right, you'll see a new icon. That's where you need to go. :-)
Good luck everyone!!
I entered! Keeping my fingers crossed! I want to go meet my fellow wizards and go meet some dragons! I’m going to be anxious until I find out if I’m going to get a chance to go.
I'm worried that the announcement for the drawing wasn't very clear. Almost everyone I know who entered thinks it was for free tickets/trip for the event. I'm really looking forward to going but am worried serious people like myself who want to go won't get the opportunity because of the flood of applications you must be getting from people who aren't aware they have to pay for the event, travel and lodging.
I thought of that too @Siragaz , but I do know they only have 48 hours to claim the ticket if selected. I think all the tickets that don’t get claimed get reshuffled and pick a new group of people until all tickets are claimed. So even if we don’t get selected in the first “round”, I think we still have a chance if those people leave those tickets unclaimed.
I am one of those who thought it was just that, @Siragaz
To me, that's the definition of a drawing/lottery. I don't have funds so if I do win (I entered before realizing it's for the incredible privilege to purchase [smell the sarcasm?] tickets) the drawing, I'm just going to have to let the 48 hours expire.
Add two more: @Overflow4487 & @Craeft to the list of people I know who entered thinking it was for a free trip.
Entered as much as I could and got some friends to enter as well.
I already booked a hotel and a round trip flight. I'm going to be really disappointed if I don't get a ticket lol
I did something like this in Pokemon Go and sadly I didn't get chosen to go. But I'm wondering if they will offer a package where you can buy your ticket, hotel and airfare all at the same time.
Thanks for sharing that feedback @Siragaz! I'll pass that along to our marketing team so we can make sure to share information about the event that does not lead to this confusion.
Also, @Overflow4487 is correct! Tickets that are not claimed within the 48 hour window will be reallocated to other players. When we start the ticket drawing, I'll be posting updates about availability.
Some people in my local Discord channel have started getting notifications about tickets! I didn’t get one, but one of the guys may let me have one of his. He’s checking with his wife. *crossing fingers*
@Overflow4487 Best of luck! The ticket drawing has just begun. Players will get an in-app notification and an email if they have won the lottery. These players will have 48 hours to purchase a ticket for themself + up to 3 friends. These tickets have to be for the same day.
The ticket registration will stay open until all tickets have sold out. I will post a new discussion when tickets sell out.
I wonder if you're in the area, even if you're not a ticket holder, if you will be able to catch some dragons? ;)
Got notified and bought my tickets.
Nice try @Siragaz, LOL!!
Got the notification that I got drawn. Fear not all. Mine will be going into the recycle bin available for someone else. :)
I can't afford to go, but I do expect minute to minute updates from those who are able to make it!!! ;)
@Siragaz - What I got from the article I posted earlier, it seems as though dragons will be coming throughout the game but those who are present for this particular event get the first shot at em. I may have misinterpreted however.
Hey @Craeft, ill pay for your entry ticket if you register my wife and I.
@Siragaz - I'd be ok with that on a personal level, but I don't know the legalities of that within the company.
@Craeft everyone can invite 3 other people. What does it ask for on the sign up sheet?
I got to the point of ordering but I have to purchase before I can add people. And to be honest, I literally don't have $40 to my name to make the initial purchase screen. So I just closed out.
Well...that didn’t work, lol. The guy in my discord didn’t realize we had to be friends first in game, so it didn’t allow him to add me to his ticket and he went ahead and reserved his. So I’m back to crossing my fingers I get one in the next batch of unclaimed tickets.
@Overflow4487 Oh wow, good to know.
@Craeft Sorry to hear that bud.
@HPWULola Really bummed this exact concern has manifest.
Tickets are not sold out yet, so you all still have a chance to win the lottery!!
@Overflow4487, sorry to hear that! You and the player who has won tickets have to be in-app friends for over an hour in order to be added to their order. We do this to try to prevent players from taking advantage of their win and reselling their ticket for a profit.
@Siragaz I’m resourceful and found you on Twitter, lol. Go out there and send me your friend codes so I can add you and your wife. I read that you must be friends prior to adding for tickets and it can take up to an hour to register new friendships.
I don’t have tickets (yet) but it’s almost 48 hours from the time they sent them out for the first wave so one of us may get tickets this time and I will want to go ahead and claim tickets.
If you can’t find me there, you can email me using my same username at gmail. Good luck!!
@Overflow4487 Jinx - you owe me a Butterbeer :) Great thinking, definitely add each other now so if any of you win tickets, you can add each other! Good luck and hope to see you all there!
Awesome! Got you added @Overflow4487
Have the second round of emails gone out yet?
@Siragaz Got me a ticket!! I already reserved my hotel room! I’m soooooooo excited!! Siragaz, you seriously are the best!
@Siragaz and @Overflow4487 Awesome, I'm excited for you both!! It's going to be an epic event!
