I have waited for 30 minutes. I was already logged on to the site before 10 AM today. I posted on FB that the site is currently down. Talked to few people about their online experience. I saw tweets that the ticketnet website is down. So I am not alone.
I tweeted “The site is down”. My cousin and my friends liked the post update. Then a former colleague commented on the photo I posted about me getting points from the visitors I got. He commented, “when is the online selling of tickets?” I answered him with — “it is down”. He said that he went to SM Ticket booth to get his ticket for the Saturday’s game. I told him the event will be held at the Araneta Coliseum. He might be confused. When the site is up, I messaged him immediately but he did not reply.
When I got in – I checked the available location. The levels are general admission and upper box. Oh no, not again. I immediately grabbed my card for the purchase. The upper box option is not giving seats. I refreshed the page. It is still giving an error message, saying there are not enough tickets for this option (not verbatim). I added two general admissions tickets to my cart. And I was about to check out when I have changed my mind to refresh the page. I did that twice until the Upperbox option showed up. I had my card on my left hand while the other was navigating through the site. I chose two tickets and immediately hit add tickets. On the next page, it asked me for my information and the card number. And rushed to the checkout. On top of the page was my remaining time to book the seats.
I was trembling while supplying my details knowing that I only have 10 minutes to hold the ticket. I made sure that it was error-free. Once I completed the form, I submitted it and thank goodness two seats are reserved.
As of this writing, gen ad seats are the only available levels — I know most tickets are given to the schools for their students / alumni.
