By joining the waitlist, you get a random place in line similar to a lottery. If your number is called you will have a chance to purchase. Being on the waitlist or pre-funding DOES NOT guarantee a pack.
You can select an available Pack ahead of time and "Join the Waitlist". When the drop opens you'll be assigned a random place in line and when called, you'll have the opportunity to purchase within a certain period of time. This makes it convenient so you don't have to join the waiting room 30 or 60 minutes before a drop opens. However, you still have to manually purchase when your number is called.
Additionally, you have the option to "Pre-Fund This item" and the system will automatically purchase the pack when called so you don't have to be present to buy. In order to do this, you need to pre-fund an account ahead of time with your credit card, TFUEL and other crypto deposit. NOTE: this does NOT guarantee you will get a pack. People in the waitlist are called in random order so everyone gets a fair chance.
NOTE: your place in line may *NOT* be called, for ex, if there are more people in line than available packs. This ensures a fair system for all interested buyers of a limited quantity of packs.
