Coming home from a hockey match 95 minutes after the sale started.

Hit the buy button.
Checked out as a guest.
Paypal, and then email confirmation.

Then checked BGG....

The European store seems to have less problem than the North American one.

I spent 30 minutes pressing F5 before managed to complete the payment and waited for another 30 minutes before receiving Riot's confirmation email, lol.

Yes. Yes, you are the only one. And the rest of us hate you.

(Totally kidding, but it did take me about 3.5 hours.)

You must be the only one. 4 1/2 hours later I still can't buy the damn thing.

I've tried off and on for ... oh ... almost 5 hours now and have yet to get past the adding to the cart.

I was on when it went up, added the game to the cart ... and hit the wall. Oh, well. Maybe I am not supposed to have this game.

Nope, mine went through 1 minute early by the PayPal email I got. Just that there are a lot of vocal ones who didn't get through so easily on here.

The OP is like the guy who comes back to the office after he and his wife have had a baby. He boldly exclaims to all the other Dads :

"My Kid slept through the whole night since Day ONE!!"

You know you should just be glad for him... but deep down, you really want to smack him.

I started to push F5 19:59, the page was a little slower than a usual page is on my bad DSL-connections but no major problems. I entered the credit card info (had an account created beforehand) and got the confirmation e-mail 20:04.

I live in Sweden so this was four minutes after the game was released. The plan was to order two games (one for me and one for my friend) so I logged out from my account and try to order another game as a guest instead (since the limit was one game per customer). By then it was impossible to enter, just got error messages. Gave up after 30 minutes.

Guess I was lucky before the tidal wave hit Europe? I really hope this ships in october. My order only says "wave 1", nothing else.

Went to a Lacuna Coil concert last night so didn't get to bed until 2am.
"Do I set the alarm for 4:50am so I can snag a copy?" I think to myself.
Nah, tired and need sleep. I'll just wait for Dec / next year.

Ended up waking up at 6:30 (1.5 hours after launch.) went downstairs and tried it out.
Got a copy straight away no problemo.
"Well, what a load of hyperventalating over nothing the whole build up to this thing has been".
Then I came here.

Ooops.


I am paying $50 for shipping so don't hate me too much.

The US site was the problem. If you didn't order from there you probably had a much easier time.

Yes, Riot only throttled North America. This way they get all the buzz from the fact that a boardgame effectively launched a denial of service attack ("People still play boardgames???") without any anti-American backlash. You don't get rich like Riot without being clever.

Edit: And I'm obviously kidding. Just occurred to me that some people won't get that. Or am I...

When I die, I want to die like my grandfather, who died peacefully in his sleep. Not screaming like all the passengers in his car

I'm offended by your edit to your post. Or something.

Yeah mine took 5mins, but the Australians had to pay $50USD cover charge ;-) so I kinda feel like we earned that ease
