More whining about the acc champ ticket

[5]
Posted: Dec 5, 2019 10:48 AM
 

So I buy 8 for family and funds friends thru the acc in august. okaaaay... ah no big deal


Months later I get an email saying they will all be digital and I HAVE to download the acc app.
Well poop. I don't want a bunch of apps on my phone...I don't even have tweeter, face book, or candy crush.

But whatever...I get the stupid app.... I go to my tickets..nope.. not there.. gotta install the Ticketmaster app also. I don't want a bunch of apps on my phone...I don't even have snap chap, tig tog, or uber.. fork it.. whatever.. I get the app.

I have to tap dance to log in everytime to acc and ticketmaster..but fork it. I got my tickets.

I go to transfer them to my friend's..okay.. ...wait ###... they also have to have the acc and ticket master apps. I apologize for the hassle to them but they do it and I transfer the tickets.

Now if I want to give the tickets to my #1wife and kids, they also have to get the acc and Ticketmaster apps.

If I want to save them on my phone I have to have google pay/ wallet or some junk I want no part of.

This whole process seems like a pyramid scheme for apps. Anyway, least I got some bojangles gift cards. I can eat some spicy chicken while I cry about it.

Anyway.... i want to just screen shot the tickets and text them to my wife and kids.. The email said screen shots wont be accepted.

How will they know the difference between the screen shot and the google wallet?

Swoff can make you install a bunch of apps but cant get the biggest cable carrier to pick up the ACC network. Sounds about right

what I have read, this in actuality means that I could not go to the game, since I would have no way to show them a "digital" ticket. Is that actually right? Seems like dinosaur discrimination to meeza.

Yup...

as I understand it, no paper tickets will be accepted. Everything is electronic.

The intent is to eliminate the scammers who are selling counterfeit paper tickets. It was a real problem a few years ago, especially the print at home variety. Scalpers were printing multiple copies of the same tickets and selling them to unsuspecting fans.

How will the scanner know the difference between a screenshot ticket and the same ticket brought up with the app?

2020 orange level memberbadge-donor-10yr.jpg


Syracuse was all electronic as well...

and they accepted tickets from their app as well as screenshots.

All the scanners needed to see was the barcode.

The barcode is protected so it wouldn't work on a print out or screenshot. Also the barcode could change rendering the screenshot/print out useless.


Nope, a screen shot should work just fine. Just like the

airport. But to get the screen shot, you have to go to the site and get your ticket. You could forward the screen shot to someone, but that would leave an electronic trail. Certainly someone will fall for it, but it won't be easy to hide.

Correct. I read somewhere that the bar code will periodically change for all "tickets".


That would seem to make the most sense. (I'm not saying the

Once a ticket is used once, any other attempts won't work.

daily, the ACC app will be deleted as soon as the game ends, they are almost as bad as the Clemson Online Store...Don't ever buy anything from them, they will spam you 5 or 6 times a day, 7 days a week


if you have iPhones you can save to wallet and txt them***

I have an iphone and I have had no problem transferring them or getting the tickets on my phone. I would like to know that if I did not have a phone would I be allowed to attend the game.

Nope, you or someone in your party needs a smart phone

contact information.

A printed ticket has a bar code and is no more or less reliable than an app or screen shot. Once the first person uses it, there will be an issue if another person uses it.

The problem with apps - as personally witnessed at Levi Stadium when trying to board the train after the game - is that if the app shuts down or the airwaves are too crowded (think Clemson any football Saturday) the app won't work. Then what?

I live and breathe technology but sometime at the very least you need a back-up plan.

It said somewhere, in the email or the app,to open your ticket before you get there to prevent that from happening.


That is the future.

Clemson will be fine. If your phone doesn't work, you can always just go print one and stand in a longe line.

The barcode changes periodically likely right before the game And other random preset times. So unless you take a screenshot directly before you walk in the game, the barcode may have been changed internally.

The app changes the code in your phone and on the accepting scanners at the same time.

NFL has the capability now, but not all are doing so this year.

Starting in a year or two you will just need to have your ticket in your Google or Apple wallet, no need to even take phone out of pocket - and you will enter the stadium.
