    Default *** OFFICIAL *** Front Gate FAILURE Thread, Presale 2015 Edition

    Stuck in the "waiting room" for an hour while your friend opened the site AFTER you and got through in 5 minutes?

    Tired of the freezes and crashes?

    Can't get past the "Sale starts at 10am" page when it's after 10?

    Captcha won't show up?

    Browser directed to the wrong page?

    Final payment page won't come up?

    Ticket buying page mysteriously won't work with certain browsers?

    Tired of paying $375 for tickets and them arriving in a crushed box, due to low-budget shipping?

    Bitch about how terrible Front Gate is here.

    Can we close this thread right now? The reality is that it won't get better than this.

    I've been on the standby page since 9:59am with the message "Passes are going fast but your chances are looking good...it shouldn't take longer than 30 minutes for you to get through". It's been 70 minutes.

    Yeah, love how the long time Coachella goers are getting screwed out of the first weekend. Way to go far, Front Gate.

    I didn't see a payment plan option anywhere when I purchased tickets using Chrome. Where was it located? I did get tickets but I had to drop $750 to do it. Anyone have similar issues? Anyone know if there is a way to re-instatre a payment plan option for tickets already purchased? Either way, see ya in 2015

    As a computer scientist, I can say that the whole Front Gate ticket system is a mess, which allowed people to cheat with those stupid links.

    You'd think after years they would get this right, but apparently not.

    The Reddit page is hilarious.

    Offer to Front Gate still open: Hire me to fix this BS, and I will forego my entire payment if I fail to make a significant improvement to the entire purchasing system.

    Wk 1 GA shuttle combos are still available through the link above. Even when it says unavailable, keep F5ing and they'll pop up.

    In at 9:59, 90 minutes in the waiting room. Only to get in, choose two passes, and then be told that there aren't any available. Bang up job this year.
