Anyways, the Virtual Waiting Room is the bane of my existence. I got selected in the "random" drawing to purchase Yankees or Cubs tickets for this upcoming season starting today at 12pm. I logged on and got everything ready at 11;45, and right when 12 hit I was on. Yup, still waiting, have 20 windows open, etc. I have to work at 3pm, and I am going to be livid if I don't get tickets before then. VWR is the dumbest thing ever.

Discuss.
I'm generally interested in hearing any suggestions to make the VWR better. It's changed a bunch based on user comments last year. It used to be completely random with no visual cues to curb scalpers who use automated programs. They can have a few hundred windows open at a time.

Now, the waiting room has changed to a first come first serve system with a progress bar and auditory cues to know when you've been selected. It's also a lot more stable.
