Guys and Gals,

I spent 4 hours constantly refreshing and I finally got a copy of this confounded game! Has there been another game release that has generated such a mad rush to obtain it? I can't recall anything. Can anyone out there correct me?

Not hardly... Maybe the first 5 minutes after initial launch. MM black Friday sales on the other hand...

Why?

They last weeks, usually have nothing but a placeholder 100$ buy in for the pledge manager later on.

To get in on the October shipment, the perceived deadline was clearly 11am PST today. Hard to compare the two.

Yeah, they're not even remotely similar situations.

While I'm happy for you that your ordering experience was so seamless, I can confidently say that you are in the very acute minority in that regard.

I think that should be revised to:

Attempting to get Early Bird Pricing on every CMON Kickstarter.

That indeed is a painful slog through a non-responsive website. Fortunately, the MvM launch has a much higher success rate at getting into the desired wave.

If you are talking about the Early Bird pledges then it is a very similar situation. It crashes kick-starters payment system almost every time.

Likely because he's not in North America.
