Holy smoke: tickets to WWI are/were hotter than hotcakes! It seems as though Blizzard underestimated the response from gamers around the world by selling out entry to Hall 5 of the Porte de Versailles Exposition Center in less than a week.
To add a bit of insult to injury, it seems as though there was a problem with the ordering system whereby users were receiving an incorrect message of “Limit of 3 Payment Attempts Reached“. D’OH!
For those that didn’t get a ticket: let’s just pray to A’dal that the event management staff is busily trying to book Hall 4 or Hall 6, as the FAQ for the event reads: Tickets are limited and will go on sale in the next few weeks on a first-come, first-served basis until they are sold out, though Blizzard Entertainment reserves the right to sell additional tickets in the future.
Should Blizzard release more tickets, we’ll be sure to update on the fly.
