650 tickets were released this round.

All tickets were held in 3.26 seconds.

The waitlist filled up .23 seconds after that.

So, by our definition, we sold out in 3.49 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.

The first reservation was completed 3.55 seconds after registration officially opened.

All reservations were complete in 16 minutes 7 seconds.  (Two tickets bounced down the waitlist queue for quite a while before getting picked up.)

In the last ten seconds before we updated the landing page (everybody say moose) to include the reg link, we saw an average of 2700 page requests per second with an average of 1226 different IPs per second.

Taking a look at reservations it appears that there are:

  • 14 IPs with 1 ticket
  • 210 IPs with 2 tickets
  • 36 IPs with more than 2 <—again mostly businesses/schools and we’re pretty sure we know which ips belong to which orgs 

We definitely see in each round evidence of folks using bots (hello shmoozilla).  However, only in one organization’s case did it seem to be somewhat successful, but not enough to cause us to call shenanigans just yet.  But know this – We see you. 🙂
