Those reasons have nothing at all do do with the low number of tickets left for the rest after the 13+ sales.

As a total guess, I'd say it's the lowest number they can go to where they can guarantee everyone a ticket.
It was raised to 14 during the Main Stand build as they couldn't guarantee everyone on 13 would get a ticket. They cant guarantee everyone on 12 gets one.
I could very well be wrong, but I doubt they've just picked 13 for the sake of it.

I'll get to the magic 13 this season, and they'll raise it to 14 :(

Aim is 19 though, then they can do what they want :)

Yeah I reckon that’s right - shame they couldn’t apply the same logic to ensure a guaranteed sale for the Champions League ACS though!

But they could not based on last years attendance only, they would have to go back over several European campaigns (probably back the EL run in 2015/216).

I agree, from a selfish point of view I’ve missed out on the last 3 European finals because of the ballot now, surely with all the years of previous attendence it must count for something more than those who literally started going in the last year or two

It won’t change though. I think the year I lose out on the European tickets is the time I stop going

The ticket page is going backwards..you now have to select both the stand and block. I should just be able to select one and then add to basket for anywhere in the ground

One thing I've noticed they've got rid of is the "any area" option in the block dropdown after picking your stand. Means that if you pick L5 as your block for example and there's no seats in it left, it won't automatically try to find you seats in a different block in the same selected stand as it would've previously. Seems a bit backwards.

Yeah it makes no sense. You literally have a handful of tickets to fight over, the last thing you want to do is select more options!!

I wondered if they’d done it to make it more difficult or at least to slow down any bots (if there are any). Just a guess as I have no idea exactly how those things work

Seems like a bad way of countering it. Bots are very good at 'doing' things, so adding extra clicks and interactions only makes the gap bigger between bots and humans.

There's plenty of things they could do though, but I don't hold out much hope unless they get a whole new system. The site is generally poor, you can currently get YSODs with full stack traces, which is pretty amateur.

Seems like more people are getting sorted this year. I know it's only been two games so far.

Whether more people are more aware of how it works etc I don't know.

I got sorted for Norwich/Arsenal very quick and easy and seems a lot of others are as well.

Since I found out about LA sales end of last season I haven't failed to pick one up in any that I was eligible for. That being said it still takes a huge effort of persistence doubled with a good slice of luck!!

I agree with you this season, managed to bag both my tickets before the Local general sales whereas most of the time it was day before/of the game last season... only downsides is I don't end up taking the chance of trying my luck for a £9 ticket which would help with the costs every now and then haha

Only slight caution I would add as I agree, so far so good on picking up tickets is that I managed to do so for the first few games last season. After that I wasn’t able to get one until Watford in Feb, so think it may well get more difficult especially if we have a good start again. But fingers crossed it continues as now and people on here keep being successful
