Saturday was Registration Day for Comic-Con’s repeat customers, and geeks everywhere are freaking out.
They’re freaking out over getting badges for San Diego 2017, they’re freaking out over not getting badges, and they’re freaking out about what the difference between returning and open registration even is. As per usual, Twitter is capturing all of the frenzied fanboy and fangirl emotions in real-time.
Below are some of the best memes and worst meltdowns on the social media site — let us know in the comments section if you scored tickets today, or what the plans are going forward.

Registration today was only for Comic-Con 2016 customers to get first dibs on 2017 tickets. Starting at 9 a.m. PT, returning fans could purchase badges for up to three people.
Open registration for everyone else is scheduled to take place in early-to-mid April 2017.
