(Sorry if this has already been covered)
For everyone that has gone through the new upgrade process for season tickets, what are your thoughts? Any strategies you want to share? Here are few quick musings I had after doing it this morning:
1) I liked having more control over my seats. I ask every year to be placed by an aisle and I always end up smack dab in the middle of a row and have to climb over 10 people to get to my seats.
2) It sucked watching the tickets I had an eye on get snagged literally 60 seconds before my time window opened.
3) Upgrading four tickets will seemingly be a fair bit harder than upgrading two because blocks of four don't seem to be prioritized for those with four already. By that, I mean an open spot of four seats together can be broken up into 2x2. If you have four tickets, you're not just contending with others that have four, but also all those looking to break up seats of four. If you have 3 tickets, it can be both a blessing and a curse (pro: 3 seats can't be broken up; con: you can only book where there are 3 or 5+ available, heavily restricting your options).
4) I took an interesting approach for my two seats. I grabbed two seats directly in front of a stranded single in the row behind. My bet was that the stranded single will remain open and will generally be in low demand and that I can go book it when the public sale opens. That way, I can bring a guest to some games by just paying face value for that seat and not having to mess around with selling my season tix and finding 3 new ones somewhere else (a hassle everytime my wife and I want to go with a friend).
5) If you're looking for endzone seats, options seem pretty extensive. As of today, it's really the sideline seats closer to midfield that are sparse/nonexistent.
