I am looking forward to the release of this game, as are thousands more. It may be naive of me to assume the game will sell out like a Pink Floyd reunion tour- in seconds or minutes - but assuming it could, where exactly will the game be listed for sale?

Will there be link directly on the current MvM page, or will it be in the Riot Games Merchandise Store or both?

I have an account set up and ready to go in the merch store, so I'm hoping that's all i need to get an order going.

Thanks

Go down to the bottom to the FAQ "When & where can I purchase Mechs vs Minions?"

It says right there the riot merch store. Which is here: https://na.merch.riotgames.com/en/

Good idea is to create an account there so you'll be ready when it gets released.

Creating an account takes you to the League of Legends page. I'm really not interested in playing LoL. Is there a page to register just for the shop?

You can buy the game through our EU merch store. Though, initially, only the English version.

Thanks, and how high are the odds that there will be a german version in the foreseeable future?

It depends on so many factors. But the primary one is us understanding the demand in a region. We've already done 90% of the work to translate the game into 22 different languages... it's just an artifact of us working at a global company. But to manufacture a print run takes some time and - since we haven't done this before - we expect we'll spot a number of mistakes that snuck through the English version that we'd like to fix for future print runs (in every language). Did we teach a rule correctly? Are there common pain points or typos that snuck through our vetting process? I'd be lying if I said I thought we had gotten it all right - though we definitely tried.

I will say that modern boardgames took much of their genesis from Germany. On a very personal level, I'm excited to get it there as soon as I can. But that might still be 6-12 months away (if at all). Ultimately, if players don't like the game, then I think we'd be doing a disservice to Germany (or any region) if we kept pumping out a product that we felt was subpar.

Except if you live in Scandinavia, which according to the website is a part of Eastern Europe. So we can only choose Polish language.
Because that's what we all speak in Eastern Europe.
(If I add /en/ to the end of the URL I get logged out and asked to choose the server in Eastern Europe.)

Hey Peter!

I understand it's a little confusing, and I am really sorry for that, but long story short you should be able to register for a "Europe West" account and use the English site and still get it shipped to Scandinavia.

I'll talk tomorrow to some fellow Rioters to understand why some people are having your problem, and maybe help fix it.

Thanks!
In the worst case scenario I'll just use the translation feature of the Chrome browser.
My alarm is set and I can't wait to order this game once it's released!

I wonder how many will be left after 24 hours. Given that the servers can handle massive io and stay online.

I'd like to think that a company that runs LoL should have the server capacity to handle 15k+ (probably more) hits on their website. Then again it's not to say that they wouldn't underestimate the hype train coming their way. =) It's probably hard to forecast what is going to happen. I can say that there will be at least one visitor from California on their site that morning.
