Two and half hours of trying (man this game better be good for that effort)
I thought I was good, finally after continually adding /////s one more after every time out I got through. Only to enter in my credit card info click complete order. To receive an endless spinning and another time out. I figured it was sold out. So I finally got the checkout page to load again, this time I tried paypal, and it went through instantly.

So not sure if this helps anyone else, but try paypal.

Whereas PayPal, for me, timed out incessantly but the credit card processor -- when I was finally able to get it to load -- went through on the first try.

What a mess.

Well than, I guess it is just of matter of getting lucky then. When it is your turn in line it goes through!

Complete mess. The biggest problem is, this is an online juggernaut company. They have made there money from an online game. This is a board game of 30k copies, not millions, and there merch store can't handle the load! That is kind of sad.

I did the /////// method every time it times out and it worked. I used that method every step of the way. Tried using CC but it timed out and emptied my cart. No conformation emails. So then I went through the process again using PayPal. I got to PayPal screen and after I processed it it went back to Riot and then promptly timed out. I noticed the url had "confirmation" in it so I refreshed with more //// and the confirmation page came up. I also got the conformation email from PayPal and Riot immediately. Thank god it's over!!!!!!!

Sorry to hear that people are having problems placing an order. I... Have accidentally ordered it through PayPal because I though it would give me a final check to confirm. The exchange rate of GBP to Europe before it went through. Whoops.

Seemed smooth for me, so hopefully other will also be able to place orders soon.

I'm finally in checkout but it isn't giving me payment options. Does that mean it's gone or still slow?

It's slow. Took a couple minutes after providing my address for the payment options to show.

HOLY F***!!! THREE and a half hours, countless timeouts, and I'l probably get fired since nothing got done at work today, but I finally made it through to a completed checkout. Paypal was the answer.

thank you Glen for the //// trick!! It really worked!!!

For everyone reading this, after you time out on the first proceed to check out, add a / before reloading.

I have no idea how it works, but it does!!

BTW I had no trouble paying with credit card
