Get ready Warmachine Fans: Lock & Load 2016 Registration opens TUESDAY! Here’s what you need to know:
Lock & Load GameFest 2016 event registration begins Tuesday, March 29, at approximately 1:00 P.M. Pacific Time. If you attended last year’s event, registration will be very familiar to you. If this is your first time registering for events through RegOnline, or if you just want a refresher, here’s what you can expect when you register Tuesday afternoon.
Before the day of event registration, make sure you have your RegOnline login information on hand. This is the email address and password you used when you purchased your badge. You did purchase your badge already, didn’t you?
Log on to RegOnline ahead of time to make sure your email and password are accurate. You don’t want to waste time filling out forgotten password forms when you could be registering for the awesome events and tournaments available this year.
Review the Lock & Load 2016 Event Schedule and plan out which events you would like to attend. If you have a list of preferred events prepared ahead of time, registration will be as simple as checking a few boxes.
On the morning of March 29, Lock & Load registration will be inactive for a few hours while we activate events. During this time, you will not be able to log in to manage your account or purchase badges; however, this won’t matter if you’ve already purchased your badge and confirmed your login information is accurate.
At approximately 1:00 P.M. Pacific Time, registration will become active once again, and you will be able to log in to your account.
Once you have logged in, click “Edit: Agenda,” as pictured below:
On this page, you will see a list of only those events that require registration. Don’t worry; Lock & Load 2016 is going to be jam-packed with hangouts, stage events, and surprise appearances in the Privateer Press Store. We’re leaving those events off the registration page for now, so it’s easy to find the event you want and secure your place.
If you want more information on an event, click the “Details” link.
I’ve decided I would like to start my Tuesday off by registering for Dead Reckoning and the Lock & Load Masters Qualifier tournament, so I’ll check both of those boxes.
Those of you who either planned your schedule ahead of time or who are especially observant will notice the times for those events overlap. If I were to submit my choices at this point, I would be greeted with a gentle reminder that those events have overlapping times, and I would be unable to complete my registration without resolving those scheduling conflicts.
If an event is full, you will have the option to be added to the waitlist.
If you are added to the waitlist and a space becomes available, you will automatically be added to the event, notified via e-mail, and unregistered from any conflicting events. To ensure you receive these emails, add firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com to the safe senders list in your email settings.
Once you have selected all the events you want to register for, as well as any events you would like to be waitlisted for, press the “Continue” button at the bottom of the screen. You will then be taken to a confirmation page.
After clicking “Continue,” just click “Finish” on the checkout page. If you have already purchased your badge, no additional payment will be required.
And there you have it; your registration is complete!
If at any point you decide to change the events you are registered for, log back in to RegOnline and edit your selections by going to “Edit” then “Agenda,” like we did before.
If you have any questions about registration, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
~Events fill up fast, so don’t dawdle!
