I see lots of people asking about where exactly we'll find the game once 11:00 PDT hits on Thursday. While I don't know 100% for sure, I did a bit of snooping on their site and found the following unlinked-to page, which is their "Board Games" category page. I think there's a very good chance the game will show up there:

https://na.merch.riotgames.com/en/other.html?cat=955

So, no promises, but I think that's a good place to start, assuming it does show up under the main "Other" category, which is what makes the most sense.



Of course, the main Mechs vs Minions page, http://mechsvsminions.com will undoubtedly link to the right page on the merch store anyways, but for those hitting refresh over and over again, the store link might just work first.

Re: Where to actually click on the merch site when this game goes on sale.
I am pretty sure that http://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/featured/mechs-vs-minions will have a buy button once it becomes available.

I assume so as well - I figure it will link to the merch site, and they'll want to have it up on the merch site before they add the link from the Mechs vs Minions site. So for those wanting to get in and order it as quick as possible, they might find this helps.

I would assume all such links are already programmed into the site and just set to update at the appropriate time.

They're really 2 different websites, just under the same domain. If it were me, I'd add it to the merch site first and make sure it works before putting links to it. But maybe that's just me.

I'm sure everyone will be fine no matter how they try to get to it - I just thought it was fun to fiddle with their site and find the category for it. But I guess maybe I'm easily amused.

I had the same thought yesterday. I started playing with the Merch site trying to see if there was a landing page that didn't link yet. Something like: https://na.merch.riotgames.com/en/collectibles/mechs-vs-mini...

I was trying the same thing to no luck. I'm guessing there won't be a specific page for it until they enable it on their back-end. But at least I *think* found the category page for it. However, on my link if you replace "other" with "collectibles" it also works... so I think one of those 2 links will work.

At the allotted time, 500 new and identical click points will appear on your screen. 1 of these will allow you to place an order for Mechs vs Minions, the other 499 will just play a burst of canned laughter.

How's that for fun and amusing? Exciting too.

I thought they would have a little animated Mech that you have to program and navigate past obstacles to get to and activate the Buy button.

When I tried to open an account at the UK address all went well until I was asked for which 'STATE' I was in !
As I don't live in a 'STATE' I couldn't supply an answer and so I came to a dead end. The system wouldn't let me go any further. This, despite entering a valid UK postcode.
Not really ideal.

That's because you should register and order from EU store, which will shio your game from Germany. https://euw.merch.riotgames.com/en/

Hi Chooi,
I'm already registered via uk store. It asks for billing and delivery address which then demands a 'STATE'.
Not ideal at all.
Internet ordering really should be far more easier. Amazon is a prime(sic) example of this.

I had this problem too, when I tried adding my work address recently. What you need to do is click on the Country drop down and re-select 'United Kingdom' again. Then you should actually be able to free-type a state (or rather, county) and the page will accept it.

I tried creating and account but it does not direct me correctly. I am from sweden so nordic + east should be the correct region. I click sweden on the shopping page, go to register, register for nordic+east region and then try to login. Then it sais I have the wrong account type(should be europe west). Sigh.

Hi Clwe: You're a star!! I re-clicked UK and lo and behold everything worked. I now have an account ready to use on Thursday evening. I don't know how you worked it out, well done. I'll put my previous failures down to 70 years on this earth. Thanks again.

I was wondering about this too but when you go to the checkout page it says:

"If you have an EUNE or TR account, please continue through Guest Checkout"

So apparently you can't actually create an account on the online store for nordic+east just for the game itself.
