I think it has always been that way. I hate when the genuine fans can't get tickets but it is the way of the world. I was able to beat the system a few times in Italy but it is difficult now. That will mean more people getting Scottish tickets, won't it???
Genuine fans get tickets for Scotland away games.
I've been to 33 (I think aways) and only time I had to go in home end (Macedonia) was because there were fans with more away points than me and I lost out in ballot.
Sounds like FAI need to get out dark ages. SFA are a lot of things but loyal away fans get priority.
