They have messed up the sale big time.

0 tickets was available.

That Chelsea message confirms it.

Yes! They have messed it or or kept the tickets to themselves. I usually have a good success rate but absolutely nothing went up so will be interesting if anyone got anything

That Chelsea message is suspicious.

I mean, that's fucking ridiculous. Used to be if you got within 3-5 mins you'd have a chance.

99.99% convinced they have messed it up. That message never happens. Theyve pushed the wrong sale as the hallmap for Everton had nothing at 11:00:00am

The message has now changed to limited and has the right game, did they correct the fuck up and release them?

Queue time tumbling, from 1hr - 44 - 22 - 12 minutes quite quickly.

What level of refreshing is even acceptable? Apparently multiple browsers causes it too?

Absolutely suspicious what has happened this morning. Would not surprise me if the ticket office staff are keeping them.

When people were testing in the other thread last week it seemed just browsing the site can cause it, it must be a certain amount of requests in a given time but not sure what it is, even a refresh and trying the button was triggering it in the Chelsea sale.

I've seen LFC Help saying to not have multiple browsers open, but if they're looking at an IP then someone else on your network also trying will fuck you.

Good luck to anyone getting through to someone that actually gives a shit, some of the responses that I have received after getting blocked the other day have been mind blowing.

The TO have really surpassed themselves this time.

i watched the chelsea game at my sisters. her 12 year old son is severly autistic and i forgot myself and jumped up screaming at the goal and he went nuts. screaming and shouting. scared the fuck out of me. apologised to my sister as i thought id upset him, turns out he was joining in.

Got in again on a separate machine, got 1 on the refresh and it blocked me when I checked out. Might be lucky this time as money seems to have gone out my bank, just waiting on the email

Just did a test, looks like it blocks your IP & WIFI Connection (Mac address, maybe cookies?)

I used hotspot + VPN and unbanned

Hotspot and VPN do buy tickets to watch our football team in 2023. Were a fucking joke.

Now

TICKETS FOR THE LIVERPOOL V EVERTON LOCAL GENERAL SALE HAVE NOW SOLD OUT.

They 100000% messed up the sale and have kept a portion of tickets for themselves or will sell at a later date at full price.

I got in and blocked after less than 8 mins of slow refreshing. I've capped it so I can send it to them.

They don't even want to listen to the people who know the loopholes / bypasses. The ticket office are dinosaurs as exhibit A they are banning normal people for refreshing and trying to buy.

I asked how are genuine supporters meant to get tickets if they're being blocked by refreshing. I got a message back saying ' every supporter is in the same position.' hahaha sound.

There are loopholes
There are workarounds
And there are queue bypasses

They have tried to prevent them but they have gone for the lazy approach it seems and banning the normal fan and today they put the wrong game on sale or linked the Everton game to the Chelsea hallmap. Shocking.

The standard reply ;D I saw a chain when someone asked them about bots and they said that THIS bollocks is what they're doing to sort out the bots. They've got no idea what they're doing.

You still have to select your tickets during the autocup sale. So potentially you could get blocked for 12 hours if you refresh the webpage too much. Even the old old system a few years ago was much better than we have now.

It worries me who's making these decisions and their responses being 'try not to refresh', they don't understand how their product works or their use cases.
