SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - It's not a trick. For some, it's definitely not a treat - in some cases, more like a headache.

San Diego Comic-Con organizers Wednesday announced returning registration would go live for 2017 badge holders on Oct. 28 at 8 a.m. PST. The infamous Epic Logic online registration will open at 8 a.m. and begin sales shortly after 9 a.m.

The online waiting room will be closed for users to log into at 9 a.m.

To be eligible, users will need their Member ID and registration code, which will be sent out to eligible registrants at least 48 hours before the sale.

Users can buy badges for up to three people total, including themselves. Children age 12 or younger can get in for free with a paying adult.

For users lucky enough to snag a badge, they can expect them to be mailed to their address on file as of May 14, 2018. International attendees will be able to pick up their badge onsite.

For those who don't get the opportunity to buy a returning badge, organizers promise open registration will occur later this year.

After the announcement, hopeful attendees on Twitter expressed the now-traditional anxiety surrounding the process of securing even a one-day pass to San Diego's celebration of pop culture. Many questioned why the short notice and why registration was occurring just a few months following this year's convention:
