The main reason I am going to origins is to support TD there and to expose my daughter to TD.... I really hope this doesn't happen


Today has be frustrating all the way around. I tried to get tickets and ended up with 5 charges (of various amounts for the same event) on my credit card for the 1 run i attempted to get in. Today can be best be described as ugly.

I understand getting shut out of an event but the way it was handled and the hours wasted is what's soured and that's Gama/Eventready not Jeff and co fault. I credit Jeff for at least acknowledging that there was a problem and offering a fix versus the silence of Origins.


Agreed. This is in the lap of GAMA/Origins. I spoke with Jeff tonight and he was under the impression that multiple ticket sales to one person for the same event were a done thing. GAMA/Origins just fucked up and didn't do what they said they were going to do. Jeff had gone over the details with them several times and was assured it was no problem.

And how will anyone that purchased their tickets not connected to this forum (or not checking this forum right now) know they lost their spot? They have to check their email presumably? I havent seen any notifications that this will take place anywhere else... If you didn't have pre access to purchase a run out then you should have the same chances as everyone else, this has a great chance to backfire spectacularly.

Wait, so true dungeon is only for people who have full groups of 10. After 5 hours i finally got 2 tickets in a basket and you're telling us because we don't have a group we are jut sol while people grab up 10 at a time.

Everything's canceled. System's offline for tuneup. Restarts Friday at 1pm. Go home, kids. Nothing to see here.


Origins Fans:

We understand this has been a frustrating day at registration for all of us. The problem is not bandwidth, as we have more than doubled it this year. There is a design issue that did not surface during testing that we need to resolve.

We're working very closely with the owner of our event management system to make sure all of the glitches are fixed as quickly as possible.

We can test and fix more quickly if the event system is off line, So we are closing registration until Friday at 1:00 pm

While the system is off, your carts will not be cleared out and you will not lose the events you have already selected!

We are extremely sorry that you have lost valuable time in your day and your attendee experience is our top priority.

Thank you for being patient as we work to fix the system.

No, it means that you will be able to buy from 1 ticket to all 10 tickets for a run as it was supposed to be when it went live today. GAMA and Origins fucked it up.

Given what has been showing up on the forums I would assume that at least half the slots will be bought up by people wanting full runs. The problem is that unless organized groups can buy full runs then True Dungeon will never come back to Origins. A large percentage of TD fans will not do PUGs.

Oh and that is not elitism in any way. It's that most of us here that have been collecting for a long time don't want to overshadow a group of new players. One super equipped character could ruin the experience for a group of newbies.

I've been on a few pugs and even though I used to glow in the dark (sold off a lot of my higher tokens) I'd play with just the starting ten pack so as to balance out the party.

The dungeons are designed with 10 people in mind. But the idea is that you can buy as few or as many of those 10 as you wish. If you want to purchase 1 ticket and play with a bunch of people you have likely never seen before no problem. At the same time if you want to purchase all 10 and run at a higher difficulty or with special rules to increase the challenge that is fine as well. True dungeon requires all perticipantes to agree when selecting a difficulty.

Basiclly it sounds like you will need to purchase the tickets again but if so just buy it and have fun.

I was hoping for the restart tonight, but due to Gama it's Friday.

Can't imagine why a attendee would be upset, it's not like haven't wasted 5+ hours, ruined evening plans and also lost what ticket i managed to get. Looks like Into the deeperdark completely removed from the system/itineraries plus messed up charges on card. Just can't imagine why someone would be upset.
We're all the kind of people who enjoy the game on a "meta" level. We like talking about the game year-round. We buy tokens. We enjoy crafting. We get together during the off-season if we can. We are a very skewed demographic that way. -Raven

Yippie. Cart was set up and then I changed one event and swapped times around in the middle of them deleting TD events.

GAMA will have to mess with the cart in order to fix my issue.

Will call them tomorrow so they can clear part of my cart or will ask what other options are available.
