battle.net queue

Post by White Kite Fauna » Sun Dec 05, 2010 9:18 am

So, I go to blizzard.com to check out how much a Starcraft 2 would cost, I click on Buy/Download link and guess what I get:
Automated Wait List
It’s a busy day for Battle.net!
Due to a high volume of traffic, you have been placed in an automated queue. Thank you for your patience!
Position
512798
Estimated Time
7 hours 53 minutes

:roll: And that's sunday 10 AM. (4 AM in the US, so should be quiet time)
dudes. :roll:
And the only thing i wanted was to check out the price.

It's cheaper to buy from retailers. Blizzard charge a premium.

Bad week to use battle.net :P

And yeah what yobraxis said, digital copies usually cost a bomb compared to retailers.

So much is wrong with that statement... mainly the bit where Blizzard rob you of money.... Oh only if they didnt make such fucking awesome games! (Mass Effect 1 & 2 I'm looking at you!)

Oh, also, good to see YO still going! This place was my life for the better part of 3 years!
