650 tickets were released this round.
All tickets were held in 2.39 seconds.
The waitlist filled up .34 seconds after that.
So, by our definition, we sold out in 2.73 seconds. At this point all tickets are accounted for and we take down the registration link. It does take longer for reservations to be completed.
First reservation was completed 6.03 seconds after registration officially opened.
All reservations were complete in 6 minutes, 30 seconds.
Again this was an incredibly fast round, way faster than round one, but there were more of you hitting the box this time. Outbound traffic on the landing site was over 30 mbps for static (and super simple) content.
Once reservations are complete, we look at unique email addresses and as well as unique IPs and other information in the logs to determine if it was a fair round. While we can tell that several folk working in the same location got tickets, nothing points to overt shenanigans or bots scooping up buckets of barcodes.
To everyone who attempted to get tickets – thank you and remember the next round is Dec. 10th.
Those of you with tickets – purchasing emails will go out in about an hour. If you haven’t already, consider getting your hotel room. You should definitely think about entering barcode shmarcode and don’t forget about labs.
