could you be on 900 points and not be a season ticket holder?
Yes, my grandson is, I purchased from the day he was born as was only £25 a year and he had birthday cards, JSB day out, xmas party and I was hoping to take him from a young age but he hasn't come much, this year, wasn't worth the money as we didn't want to move to family zone when he wont come much and would have been £200+ so didn't renew.

What’s the expected level of chaos for tomorrow morning?!

I’m in the US - so having to get up at 2am to login. Am I likely to be in a queue for hours? Is ticketmaster going to cope?

Is it easy to buy tickets for networked accounts (just need two & we’ve both got plenty of points)

I've fucked it and waited to buy Hull and Ipswich tickets till this morning on my spare account to boost that to 50 for a friend.

Turns out they don't go on instantly....

If anybody has a spare ticket or an account with 50 points on that could get me an additional, then I'd be eternally grateful.

For what it's worth he has been to some fucking shit games with me over the years, highlights include Yeovil away, Newport Vounty at home (1-0 loss 2017) and Britsol away start of this year.

They always go on the next working day, I think, so you should be OK tomorrow.

I think it will be carnage tomorrow with people not used to the system, in the initial sale for season ticket holders there was a lot of people struggling and a lot of them would be used to the Ticketmaster site. It will freak a lot of people out when you get to the front of the queue and it says your session has timed out. It looks like doing it through a mobile adds another layer of shite!!

So long as you join the queue a few minutes before they go on sale then you will be fine - your place in the queue is randomly allocated once sales begin. It’s very easy to allocate tickets for networked accounts, so two tickets should be straightforward enough! Do it on desktop rather than mobile - if you have to use a phone then don’t try and zoom in and out on the ticket map, it doesn’t work.

I’m not sure this is true in my experience.

For the final last year I was ultra cautious and had 3 accounts open in 3 different browsers. The one I joined the queue first with I was like 500 in the queue. Second one I was 3000 and the third one I joined just before they went on sale it was around 10,000.

Not sure about 900 I'm on 680 without being a STH. We had STs during St Andrews and the first season back in Cov, mainly for the other incentives like the shirts, and the prices were so cheap (wasn't it £50 for JSBs including the shirt or something mental?) it was worth it even though we only come to about 6 games per season.

I presume a load of these points will drop off at the start of next season.
Think the points that would drop off at the start of next season would be the following if you purchased Membership / Season Ticket in the season where attendance was most affected by COVID-19.

2020/21:
Championship Club Membership – 250 points
CCM with Season Ticket – 300 points

It seems different this year. Last year was definitely dependant on when you joined but this year it specifically mentions random allocation

Ah fair enough! I didn't know that, thanks.

So it doesn't make a difference if you log on an hour before or minute before.

I guess that's fairer, doesn't penalise people who can't sit there with a browser open for an hour

To be honest, it kind of goes against the spirit of queuing…

It was a queue system to buy for season ticket holders - i had a 25 minute wait

I went onto the site 15 minutes prior to the tickets being on sale and was about 3,500 in the queue (didn’t have to wait too long). I would try at least 30 minutes before.

Plus the club have already stated that there are sufficient tickets for all with 50 points plus. Don't start winding me up about tickets, I've been pretty calm about up until now!
Where have they said that there will be enough for everyone with 50+ points?

They insinuated it in a reply to a tweet last week, but the kind of message that wouldn't stand up to a guarantee in the courts. If there isn't then there will be a lot of angry people in the 200-300 bracket.

Yeah they must be pretty confident there's enough tickets to go straight from ST holders to 50 points because as you allude to someone on say 300 or 500 points shouldn't miss out to someone on 50.

I would imagine it would be 50 or more.

I guess people on 50 points today will find out but you're probably right!

People’s circumstances differ and it’s never as black and white as people make out. We have 3 season tickets but 5 of us go to games on a regular basis. Unfortunately we’ve been buying the additional tickets on the 3 main accounts and have had to scramble to get 2 peripheral accounts to 50pts so that all 5 of us can go

Was this the waiting room for ST holder? i've just been on the page to see if the queuing has started and its showing as "THIS EVENT IS NOT YET AVAILABLE TO YOU" - presumably as its still marked for ST holders.

I guess the queue will start at 10 when the ST time expires.

Well, let's do a comparison ...I'm sure you know that on 8th April, there is a solar eclipse with states of emergency declared in many US states, NASA is apparently firing rockets up at it and the Cern large hadron collider is also firing up for the first time for two years on that date to try to discover dark matter... Many conspiracy theories around it all.....
Today is likely to be worse!!! 🤣🤣🤣

Anyone with 50+ points not needing their allocation this morning?

My brother & his wife were season ticket holders for years before moving to the Isle of Wight. They have been to plenty of games since but (stupidly) I always purchased them on my account...
