I hope that someone from Riot might answer the question as to how many copies were actually sold in the first six hours or so.

At this point (8 hour from the sale starting), the website is humming along and it appears there are still copies to put in carts, so it's not yet out of stock.

Was it really tens of thousands of people hammering the website trying to get the copies which quickly sold out?

Or was it just a few thousand people making each other's lives hell as they kept each other from being able to just buy a copy and move on?

I find that I wished they had a ticker counting the number of copies sold. I would have watched that page, but not worried so much about refreshing the cart every 30 seconds for hours if I knew there were still thousands of copies left.

And if I, and the ravenous hordes, had paused so we could all order easily a few at a time, it would certainly have saved a lot of time and angst.

Seeing it's still in stock and moving smoothly, I feel dumb having wasted 3 impatient hours just focused on getting through.

about 2 hrs ago they posted that 70% of the October units have been sold. If the first shipment was 15k as announced that means they sold over 10k of the game in 6hrs.

There is a duck in every game. You may not see it, but it's there.

I just ordered a wave 1 copy. took about a minute. After dealing with the early birds for galaxy defenders, I swore never to do the "try to get it now" thing again. If a game sells out, I don't need it.

Never putting myself through that fiasco again!

(Glad I still got a copy though!)

"We are about 70% through the October units right now" As I understand that sentence, I think it means they sold 70% of the units.

Thanks for the information. So, it does appear I should have just wait and had less frustration AND allowed everyone else easier access without me adding to the rush. Live and learn.

We've about sold out of Wave 1 for NA. Wave 1.5 (ships in December) is now up on the store, so if you see Wave 1 sell out, you can pre-purchase a copy that will ship to you in December.

So 15,000 units sold in 1 day...

That is pretty impressive, and you should feel pretty proud EVEN with all the hocus pocus issues about people unable to log on/complete purchases/etc etc...

Hats are off, my good sir!

Close, but not quite. Wave1 Shipment#1 had a total stock of 12.000 copies. Shipment#2 is 18.000 copies total. This was mentioned several times like in the comments on the Riot Games Merch Facebook page.
