People sell to distributors instead of trying to sell it themselves. Most companies don't have the infrastructure to make this work...it looks like Riot is no exception.

Personally I'll take a little bit of hassle/pain for the cheaper price myself. This would easily be twice as much if sold through the normal distribution process. As someone from MvM just pointed out in another thread this is an not exclusive, but people are treating it that way. In a couple of days or so checkout will be just a normal process I'm sure.

I found the process pleasant compared to buying Glastonbury festival tickets. Just keep trying it will get easier as more orders get processed and people give up

Yeah, companies should stop having Black Friday sales since they clearly can't handle the initial rush. shake

Sure it sucks that the servers are having issues, but you hit anything with a large enough group and the servers will fail. Heck most MMos have 4 to 8 hour queue times to log in on launch day. To suggest the company cannot handle distributing their game because of a website surge is crazy. Also, the reason why this is not at a distributor is because of the choice to offer it to us cheaper. This game at a distributor would be at least $150. I for one am happy they did it themselves.

And this is the same reason I don't buy on Black Friday. I would rather pay more and not fight the throngs :-)

Same here. I have yet to go shopping on a Black Friday. Much more easier, and convenient, to just shop online and have it delivered to the house. No crowd fighting, no getting stuck in traffic. Besides, after browsing a lot of sales ads during that time, I have never found a deal worth going to the stores for in the first place.
