SDCC Returning Registration Sells Out In Under 1 Hour

By Transmute Jun:

SDCC 2017 returning registration (formerly known as pre-registration) was held this morning, March 11. The sale began slowly, with no one getting into the buying screen until 9:08 am, and then proceeding slowly. However the sale picked up steam, and soon people were moving into the buying window at a much faster pace. This can be seen by the progression of badge sellouts.




9:08 AM PT – First badges sold

9:25 AM PT – Preview Night gone

9:43 AM PT – Saturday gone

9:46 AM PT – Friday gone

9:57 AM PT – Thursday gone

9:58 AM PT – Sunday gone/Sale over

Those who got badges can count themselves lucky to have survived the feeding frenzy, while those who were unlucky can still participate in open registration, scheduled to be held in early to mid April.
