You guys flooded and crashed the site within 5 minutes of the link going live. I happened to be a few blocks away from the theatre hosting the event, so I decided to head down there myself to get them physically rather than resort to the BS from the site.
Interestingly enough, a middle aged woman was already there complaining up front about how the site wouldn’t let her in and that there should be more tickets somewhere. I checked a ticket kiosk and they indeed were sold out. Maybe if I had ran to the theatre 30 seconds after seeing the status, I might’ve made it. But within 5 minutes? That’s impossible by any human standards.
To the Doctor Who fans, I love you guys. But BBC America just sucks at choosing their ticket hosting sites.
Am I a little butthurt that ths has happened to me twice in a row by BBC America? Yes. But I’ve had my tantrum. 2 years ago. Now I’m just plain disappointed. Bad choice of ticket hosting sites, poor execution.
Maybe if they had given a rough time frame as to what time they would sell the tickets, everyone would have had an equal opportunity chance of encountering a crashed site, instead of having people who had no life refreshing the BBC America twitter page all day grabbing all the tickets leaving normal people in the dust.
TL;DR—I’m disappointed in you, BBC America.
