If there are any hopefuls looking to get their Premium tickets during the next batch releases, here are some tips that may seal the deal so you won't need to admit defeat and get a general ticket (before realizing everyone else admitted defeat, too, and now they are sold out as well):

  1. Use a chrome extension to check the page for any updates every few seconds: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/page-monitor/ogeebjpdeabhncjpfhgdibjajcajepgg
    1. After installing, go to this page, click on your extension icon, and click "monitor this page." Then go into "options" and ensure you have the check interval box checked and set to 5 seconds (and use the chime sound effect to ensure you know the page was updated). Feel free to monitor other pages as well, though the actual ticket page triggers the alert every refresh cycle, so I wouldn't recommend it.
    2. Once 12pm PST rolls around, you should hear the alert ping, refresh the page, and immediately press "Add to cart" on the premium option.
  2. Ensure your shipping/billing info is saved in your account settings here: https://robertsspaceindustries.com/account/addresses
    1. When you reach the page after clicking "Add to cart", there is a drop-down option just above the information fields you can use to populate the fields from your saved address.
  3. Ensure you check all the agreements at every page, missing some can slow you down by enough seconds to miss out on the batch.
  4. [EXTREMELY IMPORTANT] Use PayPal as your payment choice, as their buyer protection ensures that as soon as you are redirected to the PayPal site, your ticket is reserved to your order.
  5. If you miss the batch and see the "sku: out of stock" error window, remain on that page: as soon as the next and final batch at 6pm PST comes by, all you'll need to do is hit your return/enter key to re-submit the order request, whereas everyone else will need to go through the entire process again.
  6. If you do end up not getting the premium ticket, but still want to go to CitizenCon, grab a standard ticket as soon as you can, as there will be plenty others that will be doing the same. Don't make the assumption that because they have sold slowly the past day that they will last a long time when the final batch of premium tickets are sold out!

I found that mashing F5 from inside the Premium Ticket Info Page to be how I got mine. That extra second or two I got ahead of a page scanning extension helped.

That and a high-DPI mouse.

      These are probably the most important aspects of SC to understand and many may have missed this first one (perhaps the most important for understanding the PU).

      Greetings, citizens!
      The last CitizenCon was very eventful.
      But, not every people have time to watch the every presentations, or at least the Opening Keynote, which duration is two hours.
      And I, by tradition, do a brief squeeze of what was on the main presentation - you can call it a trailer, or a retelling. In any case, for those who can't (or don't want) to watch the full Opening Keynote, such a format (in the dynamic “trailer” cut) will work better. Feel free to share this video with those who have not yet watched the presentation!
      Also, you can support me in:

      Enjoy watching!

      My wife is a huge StarCitizen fan, a backer from way back in the day.
      We recently moved to Austin, and were quite busy with said move.
      I got on today hoping to buy her a ticket, only to see that the con is sold out.
      Is there any other way to get a ticket or access to the event? Could she work the event, or help out a member of the press?
      Anything would help, she was really devastated not being able to go...
      Thank you.

      Greetings, citizens!
      I decided to do a traditional video from the last exhibition - CitizenCon 2947.
      There will be no revelations in the video - all this can be seen in the presentation itself. I just decided, choosing, in my opinion, the right music, to do the editing with the best, in my opinion, moments from the main presentation of the exhibition.
      For those who are too lazy to view the whole presentation, this option can be ideal - atmospheric and shortly about the best. And those who have already seen the exhibition, it will be nice to see all this beauty again. 
      Enjoy watching!
      P.S. If you liked this video, do not be lazy to support it in:
