It actually sold out slower than I was expecting. Apparently men’s was gone in 3 minutes instead of the usual 1 second. Still impossible with all the errors, though.

 

I had 2 people trying for men's FS and both have been in 'capacity problems' for 5 minutes until it sold out...

Just out of curiosity, for those with quick reflex action, what tickets were available for today's sale? 

By the time I check Lawson at JST 6pm, I see only X except for 20 Mar ticket which as of now, is still available. I didn't refresh multiple times as I was busy with a work but when I did refresh, I never see a ticket. So what categories are available this time? 

I saw all the category for everyday, including 23, but when I try to add something to my cart it say error and when I did add and the capacity problem occur.

Ah, now I remembered I did meet with capacity problem at start and has to refresh for quite a while before I can see the page. 

So there are still tickets available for sales. Too bad with all those errors and capacity issues... :facepalm:

Is this new? Ticket Pia says they may do random ID checks at time of entry? They even have a list of accepted ID like credit card, student card, Ice Crystals membership etc. :/ 

 

It says if you’re asked and don’t have ID they won’t let you in for any reason.

Is this a usual message on Pia? A lot of legal, not for profit ticket trading happens among fans so how would this work?

My Japanese friends always bought/sale tickets from people on this site so I guess it's trustworthy, at least to me it's more trust worthy than viagogo. 

Do your friends know anything about this one https://ticket.st/artists/isu-wfc-tickets/event-247361 ?

There seems to be less info about it then ticket.co.jp

Are they even allowed to do this? Seems so discriminatory.

The whole process of buying tickets seems to be discriminatory (for foreigners at least). But I didn't see such info at Lawson, only about resale exceeding dace value.

Pia have the same resale for profit warning as Lawson but have the extra one about ID underneath it and it seems to be specific to the competition, too, because it mentions Ice Crystals memberships.

I've tried Voyagin before for tours, but didn't know they are reselling tickets also.

March 21, 23, and 24 are listed on their site, selling premium tickets for 31,700 yen.

But they say duration: 2 hours on all days, that's strange. Maybe I should write them when they're on-line. Maybe it was a price for lottery application...

I used Voyagin as 1 of my 4 proxies. They provided preselected links for my choice dates (21 & 23) for $307USD for each Premium ticket - which was more than they are currently asking.  When I opened their link they had also preselected the 24th priced at $307USD.

"Please select 

1)  “[Mar 21] World Figure Skating Championships in Saitama”
on this page - https://goo.gl/Zp8pfZ.
 2)  “[Mar 23] World Figure Skating Championships in Saitama” 

on this page - https://goo.gl/jyrqCy.
 
The option has been preselected for you. You can pay over the website by Paypal or credit card."

 

Another proxy said that Lawson responded first and they tried to get Premium tickets x4 times during the two minutes for both the 21st and 23rd, but it responded with "Server overloaded" on the final step every time. Continually reloading Pia didn't even get that far.

Ah, so basically they preselected the most expensive option.  Now why is that link still up since everything is done.

So it's just a proxy buying service that hasn't removed lotteries that have passed their date? :Poohgaveup:

No idea. Though they can easily refund if a mistake was made.
