Man, I have been on BGG for years now and even I can't believe how much whining people are doing about trying to purchase this game. I have never experienced so much self righteous entitlement before in my life.

Take a pill. Sit down. Relax a little. Maybe try a little deep breathing. I too have been trying to purchase the game for an hour, but I'm perfectly ok with waiting until later today or tomorrow or even into the New Year if that's what it takes to get my order in.

I just find this so disheartening to be seeing so many negative posts about a very cool and exciting game. I sure hope that none of you have to wait for a doctor to give you the results of a test that could spin your entire life sideways.

First World Problems, I know.

Hey, at least it's more original than the dozen or more threads whining about not being able to buy a freaking game. I feel if they have the right to complain, then I have a right to complain about their sense of entitlement.

Seriously, I WANT this game. I don't NEED this game.

Now, later or never, I am sure I will survive one way or another.

I think I am going to start a thread to whine about the threads about people whining about the people whining.

Everyone has the right to be frustrated, I know we are frustrated over here by the fact that we weren't able to make the purchasing experience great for y'all.

We are working as hard as we can, which currently isn't good enough (obviously). I'm truly sorry that we haven't provided the best experience thus far.

You have now experienced the power of board gamers to take down any site! Muhahah

Don't worry about it. People will complain, but in the end it will work out. They just might get it a few days later. The same thing has happened to Coolstuff, Miniature Market, and others.

Now WHERE is my game!

Agreed! Imagine people on the hottest board gaming site being this worked up about not being able to secure their copy. Truly just unthinkable.

If only we could all be as apathetic as you everything would go so much smoother. Thanks for being better than all of us, the world needs more self aware people like you to keep us and our enthusiasm in check!

Expecting the website to not crash under the load of people for one of the most anticipated games is not outrageous at all. Especially a company that has made there money on and online game. There servers should of been able to handle this, there is no excuse for this to be happening. 90+ minutes and I still keep timing out.

He's not apathetic. He's disheartened. I feel bad that he's lost his heart and that he can't believe this.

Not apathetic or disheartened. Just a realist I'm afraid. Anyone who expected to be able to log in this morning and secure a copy with no wait time is unrealistic in my opinion. What did you expect when this was announced several weeks ago and the launch was timed for a very specific day and time?

This sense of entitlement that Riot should have systems in place to guarantee a zero wait time is laughable. I guess everyone who tried to purchase a copy at 11:00 and was denied should also get a participation ribbon too?

By the way, it's been 2.5 hours and I still haven't been able to purchase a copy and I'm still trying. Not worried. I'll get mine when things die down and the servers recover.

So you're saying it was reasonable to expect that the servers would be hammered? Apparently it wasn't because Riot didn't anticipate it.

Wow. You seriously thought there would be no delay? I'm shocked, but ok. As for Riot, sure externally they said they would be ok, but I'm sure they knew deep down that they knew they couldn't handle several thousand purchases at the same time, but would never officially announce that.
