I got mine about 15 minutes after I started the process (given it went live about 3 minutes early).

So many failure screens, and even a rejected CC purchase that makes me wonder which field I might have screwed up...

Your order number is xxxxx


I was order number xxxxxxx at 5:00, gives a rough idea of how many people are ordering

My order number is indeed between those, but I don't want to post it (as it can unfortunately lead to account fraud).

It shows there's at least 138 of us Aussies (and Kiwies, I guess) that were enthused enough to wake up early to get a copy.

I got in at the minus -2 minute mark really easy until it tried to connect to PayPal. Then the merry-go-round started.

Finally came though at around the 35 minute mark. Happy Camper!!!

Ask yourself, if you saw a game this big and heavy with painted miniatures, metal coins, 300 cards, heavy cardstock and full of content, and saw it on the gaming store shelf for AUD$159.95, would you balk? More importantly, would you EXPECT it to only cost AUD$99.95?

I think too many people are tunnelling on the USD$50 shipping fee, but only because they know it is priced at USD$75. If Riot priced it at USD$125 shipping included, everyone would say "what a bargain"

Well my copy is costing me AU$164.59 (on the conversion, less PayPal fees).

At AU$165 total price for this game, I am ecstatic especially compared to the prices of anything else I could find at any FLGS.

I ended up getting mine at approx 5:30 am.
Didnt really have a problem as so many other people have seemed to have?
It took maybe 7seconds longer to load each page, but if patient enough, it was good.

Im just hoping i get it by the beginning of next month at the latest.

and with the shipping of $50, if it doesnt come properly padded, if it arrives damadged/crunched corners.... i will be more then pissed.

Man I was tricked by my mind. I was looking on the forums after work how no one could get a copy and all the servers down. So my mind was like

"Lets just go on and see if its available"

--ooo it is

"Lets see how hard it is to order"

--Ooo that was easy

"NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO"

Mind over Wallet *sigh*

I only really heard about the game in the last couple of days and watched a couple is Rahdo videos and that was it. Decided to order lol. At first I was turned off by the 50usd postage but realised that $165aud for a game of this size to my door is cheaper than something of similar size from the FLGS. Ordered at about 11:30am AEST, no server issues and went straight through!

Funny, got up at 5am, could not order it for love or money. Tried for 45min.

Went to work, gave a presentation super groggy due to the early start.

Around 11am coffee decided to on my phone. No luck. Switched to 'desktop mode' et voila! Game ordered.

Yes, $165 for this game to my door is actually not the worst.
