Just logged in, downloaded the patch, went to the store and now I have 150 event tickets. I don't know exactly how many I had but around noon today it was right around 10k event tickets. I am seeing similar freaking out messages on main chat and in my guild chat so it appears this is not a unique problem.
@Joel @Eej @Victoria
are you all aware of this already and figuring out a fix? Or do I need to submit an SR?
