For those that have not purchased their badges for Comic-Con 2014, it has been announced that open online registration will begin this Saturday, March 15. As many know, gaining a coveted badge for San Diego Comic-Con have been pretty cutthroat, but they have changed the process for the better – hopefully. Find out the details for open registration after the break.
Comic-Con 2014 open online registration will begin shortly after 9:00 AM (PST) on Saturday, March 15, 2014. The landing page will be available to view at 7:00 AM (PST) for those to enter their personal registration code and to authorize your device to enter the waiting room. You may only gain a registration code if you have created a Member ID on the Comic-Con website. Your registration code will be sent to you via email at least 24 hours prior to the start of the sale. Members may also access their registration code in their account information on the website under the “Registration Info” tab. Members must authorize their registration code prior to 9:00 AM (PST) on March 15. The EPIC Registration waiting room will close for entry at 9:00 AM (PT).
This year is also completely different and you will not have to wait frivolously to click the button to enter the Waiting Room at 9:00:00:00 AM on the dot. This year, thanks to the registration code, you can enter the registration code between 7am and 9am and then come back at 9 am and you will be then placed in a digital line at random. This is definitely more freeing and a game of chance, which allows those who have never been an equal opportunity to attend. But you must remember that you should not refresh your browser or hit the back button, otherwise you will lose your spot and get kicked out of the waiting room.
Please keep in mind that not everyone who enters the waiting room will be able to gain a badge. During open online registration hopeful attendees may purchase badges for a total of three people, including yourself. If you intend to purchase badges for others, they must all be eligible to participate and have their own unique Comic-Con Member ID; you will also need the Member ID and last name for all individuals you are purchasing for.
In order to access and purchase a Preview Night badge this year, you must have had purchased a badge for Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday badge
