I was really hoping their servers would be up to the challenge but after spending over an hour I gave up on trying to buy the game. I can only stare at the Gateway Error for so long!

I had the same problem, but found that by not changing the language from polish to english and checking out as a guest took me all the way.

Try again now - I had the same problem in UK but finally managed to grab one. If I go to the UK site now you can go all the way through the ordering process with no delays....there will come a point where everyone has got one. I sat through many timeouts and F5s. Should have just waited until now. I know you are in the US but worth one more go.

Yep. I've been clicking refresh for 73 minutes now. I have the worst luck at these things...

I'm with you guys, I was here 15 minutes before it opened and I've had nothing but timeout screens the whole way through

Took me about 100 minutes then got in. Either loads of people gave up or enough people got through and checked out that the load dropped to something manageable.

The only advantage I had was being stuck on conference calls so I could easily hit refresh. But it was rather frustrating to keep getting that CloudFlare error.

The secret is in the backslash!

Just add a / or // or even /// to the end of the URL, and it just might work!

Seriously, try it!

I'm on the last page of the checkout process where it asks to save your email address and its just sitting there..... My payment info is in, my total is there but when I hit save it just sits there.

Now Ive hit confirm order and its just spinning away ...... grrrrrr

Exactly the same for me. Sadly I think it isn't going to happen.
