He who fights with monsters should look to it that he himself does not become a monster. And when you gaze long into an abyss the abyss also gazes into you.

They were on here quoting $5 US shipping in another thread, what a deal! So I spent something like 7 hours ordering a copy only to find that wait, no, as an Alaskan it will be $20. I'm used to paying more in shipping, thems the breaks after all. Whats irksome is that there is never any mention of this ahead of time. If you want to charge more to AK is an entry for AK/HI/Guam/Whoever to much to ask? We are part of the US you know. At least that's what they tell me when they ask for my sweet sweet tax monies.

But today I got my copy, and great googly moogly is $20 to ship this beast a good deal. Heres a picture of the box next to my gigantic child:



So yeah, I was a little less irked after that. Then the icing on the cake was this:


A little thank you post card? Ahhh, your welcome Riot! If the game lives up to the hype I'm a pretty happy customer. Just wanted to share that

You're right about being misinformed and that's on me. And after 7 hours, I imagine that was icing on the cake. Sorry about that, Phil.

Heh; I heard that part, too. But I think your initial frustration was pretty fair. And that was on me.

I really hope you and your family enjoy the game.

It was buried in the packaging, I found it because I'm neurotic about searching the packaging just in case
