I swear I must have done something to anger the gods of GC. Once again my housing portal time is lousy. Now this year could be different, but based on history I won’t be able to book a room downtown.

I've never gotten a good portal time, I do miss when it was first come first served (even with all the server crashes). I won't be using my time since I'm not attending, but I was allocated 4:20. I'll probably log in out of curiosity just to see what type of hotel I could have gotten. :)

Since I already decided to roll my badge over 2022, I didn't even bother checking my account or email. I guess they still assigned me a 2:00pm time. Most downtown rooms are gone by then, although there might be a few single rooms floating around at unconnected hotels. Even that might be doubtful. I will probably just vicariously watch my friends' messenger chat for those who are still going. So, far, the best time any of them have gotten is 1:02pm.

Hearing from a number of people who rolled badges to 2022, but were still allocated a time. Perhaps downtown rooms will last a little longer.

You can still roll over your badge right? So maybe some folks that don't get good hotel times will roll over as well. Honestly I really never understood having badges and before hotels. What if you couldn't get a hotel that would work for you for whatever reason. So you cannot come but have already gotten a badge. As bad as the Origin system is (and it is terrible) I always felt they handled housing better.
You either discover a star or you don't. You arrogant punk.

Before people start getting upset about the times they got. This year will be different with housing too. With so few able to attend this year, and nearly 40% of roll over badges asking for them to be rolled over to next year, A late time may not be an issue.

GC has stated they are still processing rollover request.

And if you don't get a DT room right away, when events get listed, I would be willing to bet you will see a flood of canceled rooms. Just play the wait and watch game.

For my self, I got a decent time, but wont be booking. Personal RL issues are causing me to bow out of all conventions this year. Life sucks some times, and this year is bad personally.

To those going. Have fun, enjoy and I hope to see you all next year.

I believe I remember that the rollover deadline was extended to June 25.

Wow - that's even later than my time (5:12).

Who knows what will happen this year, with the attendance limits, the rollovers, the cancellations of big companies.

I think I might take myself out of the equation and book something outside the housing portal - my wife should be able to book me a room a 5 minute walk away with points.

I also hope your RL issues are easily resolved.

Just found out my buddy got 12:03, so we are almost certainly fine.
