Anyone know what the command is to open up multiple windows while trying to get through on Ticketmaster?

To open multiple browser pages “Ctrl N” . Press control and the letter N.

DO NOT OPEN MULTIPLE WINDOWS!!! Ticketmaster will kick you out if you get to the final window to purchase tickets. It happened to me for the ALDS

I'd be very very cautious about opening up multiple windows. It screwed over a lot of us for ALDS tickets.

Does anyone know where the link will be to order ALCS tickets today? I don't see anything on whitesox.com. I'm confused because they had a ticket link up on that sight well in advance for the ALDS a few weeks ago.

I don't want to be scrambling at 11:59 to find the right website or link -
HELP!

Nevermind - I found it on whitesox.com. It's a link that looks like this:

There is a link on the front page of Whitesox.com, or you could just go to Ticketmaster.com and run a search for White Sox.

Anyone have any tips, as last time I couldn't get through,,,I started right at noon and the wait time was like 6 minutes and climbed to over 20 minutes and never went through. Luckily I got through on the phone, but was only able to get game 5 ,,,,,which hopefully won't happen.

I found it last night on ticketmaster, but the whitesox link is what i will use. I agree that if you use multiple windows, you risk the chance of ticketmaster kicking you out. Better to use multiple COMPUTERS if you have the access.

Guys.

When tickets were on sale for the ALDS, someone had posted that they had used two different TYPES of browser and they were able to keep both windows open without Ticketmaster booting them. When I refer to two types, I mean Internet Explorer & Firefox. Can ANYONE confirm this prior to tickets going onsale today?

Help would be wonderful. Unless someone can confirm... DO NOT USE MULTIPLE BROWSER WINDOWS because you will not get tickets. My buddy tried... and failed miserably for the ALDS.

can someone post the suspected home schedule for the sox in the alcs (if they make it)

i'm in detroit but i have no idea what games will be played at home or whatever

is it 2-3-2?

if so, that blows for me, becuase cames 3-4-5 will all be on a weekend in another city.

The Sox would have home field in the ALCS. That means games 1, 2, 6 and 7. I believe the ALCS is scheduled to start on Tuesday.

I didn't have a problem using multiple browsers...I'm not guaranteeing that you won't get booted, but it's probably a safer choice than having multiple windows of IE or multiple tabs in FF...

I had Firefox and IE up at the same time, logged into my TM account on both, on the specific Game 1 page. Starting refreshing Firefox at about 11:58, a little past 12:00 the drop downs for # of tickets and section appeared, choose Best Available, 4, and Next...then went to the IE window and did the same thing. Firefox had me at a one minute wait, and then my tickets appeared. I was able to order them no problem. IE showed a 5 minute wait...I clicked out (as I already had my Game 1 tickets), and then tried to get Games 2 and 3 via either browser. Didn't succeed in that, but wasn't booted for multiple windows or anything.

When tickets were on sale for the ALDS, someone had posted that they had used two different TYPES of browser and they were able to keep both windows open without Ticketmaster booting them.

If you use multiple computers with the same account could you run into problems??? Or is it only if you have multiple windows open on the same computer?

I see game 2 is TBD time. What do you guys think the odds of that being a day game are (probably pretty low if we're playing NY I'd guess, no clue about LAA)? I gotta get an evening game this time around, I can't go taking more time off of work for this sadly. If it looks to be a possible day game I'll just aim for Game 1 tix.

I really don't understand how TM can have all these proxy errors...and the error messages people were getting during the ALDS sale. It's ridiculous...a multimillion dollar company in the business of selling/providing tickets, and their systems can't handle high-demand events? How many years have they been doing this? How cheap is computer hardware these days?

People shouldn't lose out on tickets due to ticketmaster's technical incompetence...this is BS.

I was able to get 3 for Game 7 and 1 for Game 6. Games 1 & 2 were sold out. I almost got through on Game 1 and Game 2 but received a "Proxy Error" for both games - then a 15 minute wait time which made me pick games 6 an 7.

Looking to trade a pair of Game 7 (Sec 153 Row 33) for a single to Games 1 & 2 at face.

PS - I think 4 total are the limit - not 4 per game like last time.

BUT

Her mom decides, hey I will roll the dice and call, got in early, has NO IDEA where her tickets are, but she paid 431 for 4 tickets, meaning she paid 100 a ticket, which I guess means we are sitting lower deck box game 2. Insane

Yup, same thing here. I heard a girl in the office (typical Cubs fan; doesn't really follow baseball, but likes the Wrigley experience) talk about how her and her friends are trying to get tickets. It's the hot ticket in town and freaking everybody's trying to jump on board.

But I'd love for the Sox to win the next one in 4 or 5 games. If not I'll be in some of the worst seats thay have (last row bleachers) for game 6. Something people don't seem to realize is that the worst seats at the Cell aren't that bad. Much better than the worst seats at Wrigley. My problems with seating for the last two games is that Tuesday I couldn't see the pitch speed and last night no digital scoreboard. Great crowd for both games even in the least desirable seats. Hopefully someone will come through for me for game 1 or 2. It's gonna be a great October!

If the Sox don't need to play game 5 of ALDS does TM credit you back?

they credit the credit card you purchased them on......not sure if they refund the 10 buck service charge (I don't think they do)......I had little problems with it when I had round 2 Bulls seats.

NBC5 has pictures of people sleeping by the park waiting for tix.


IS THIS TRUE?


Forget they changed the headline from what I saw earlier. How could these people not have known?

They will refund the ticket price, but not their "low" fees.

No singles left for Game 7. No singles for Game 6. All out. What garbage. I didn't even get the jive proxy error. Just "none available".

Don't know how but my wife managed to get two tickets for Game 2. I was on at noon for the ALDS (and was shut out) and same goes for this series. When we lived down in So. Florida I was able to snatch two for the Marlins/Cubs Game 5, but this means so much more to me. It cost us $150 for the pair, but well worth it.

I got some interesting ticketmaster explanations. I got "cannot process your order, check your order history and see if your tickets are there". No. I got a proxy error, and I got "your tickets are reserved in multiple windows, use one window to proceed". I only had one window open, and no tickets. One of my buddies got 4 for game 1, together, and can't get one for any game with 2 computers going since noon? Oh well.

anyone feel like getting a group together for a box. I think it only cost about 400 apiece and food and drink is included.

I am so MAD!!!!!!:angry: :mad: :angry: :mad:

I had 4 tickets to game 2, 12 row, right behind home plate, upper deck. When I went to by them I typed in my ticketmaster username and password and it sat there forever, then finally came up with an error. By the time I hit back enough times to get back to the ticket page and hit "buy tickets" again, it told me too much time had expired and the tickets had been released.

I HAD FREAKING TICKETS...TICKETMASTER SUCKS!!!
:angry: :angry: :angry: :angry:

You at least had tickets. I sat in line for 15 minutes just to get a proxy error. Tried 1 more time and sat in line again for 30 minutes and got nothing out of it.

Here's the thing with Ticketmaster though: always log in first, then go for tickets.

Something people don't seem to realize is that the worst seats at the Cell aren't that bad.
Not according to the "experts" in the media...
