In about six months, San Diego Comic-Con is going to start blowing geeks' minds. But as you know by now, going to the con is no easy task. If you want to attend you have to go through the headaches of making it happen. It's not easy getting tickets these days! And now they have made things a little more difficult. This year they will not be selling four day passes. You will have to buy the tickets individually. There's no doubt this is going to annoy the fans of the epic geek convention.
This is the official announcement from their web-site:
New for 2014! Only single day badges will be sold. The Preview Night badge option may only be purchased if you buy a Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday badge. Preview Night is not a stand alone badge option. As in 2013, anyone who purchases a Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday badge will have the option of consolidating them into one 4-Day badge onsite.
Then there's this whole thing about pre-registration:
Only those that have purchased a Comic-Con 2013 4-Day attendee or 1-Day attendee badge, have a valid Member ID, and retain their actual Comic-Con 2013 badge will be eligible to participate in 2014 badge preregistration. Professionals, guests of professionals, exhibitors, exhibitor purchased attendee badges, volunteers, staff, and press will not be allowed to participate in badge preregistration. Open online registration for the general public and all categories listed above will occur at a later date. If you did not attend Comic-Con 2013, you may participate in open online registration later this year.
Personally, I think Comic-Con should have focused their attention on making it an easier and smoother experience for fans to get tickets and hotel rooms, because they still have yet to perfect it. This whole thing doesn't seem like it will help. But I don't know, they say they are just trying to make the experience fair for everyone. What do you think about this new plan that has been implemented?
