    I'm excited just to pre-purchase. It feels silly if I think about it, so I'm just not going to think about it.

    I'll join in for wishing Caedere well - I (used to) work in Health, and the road to some diagnoses is... unfortunate.

    While this is pure speculation, I'm also curious how they're going to handle WuvWuv on release. We know it's normally a 2-week fight, but does that 2-weeks start at Head Start or Release? Will there be a mini 3-day wuvwuv for headstarters, or 17-days so people who buy on the official release get a full 2 weeks, or are they just going to say "screw it - people who buy on release are just going to have to put up with the fact it'll be 25% over before they set foot in the game"?

    Yeah, same here. I'm glad he said things will be okay, but it takes a mature person to sacrifice something they've been eagerly awaiting for a more pressing need. But I'm confident we'll see you in GW2, amigo!

    and that's a good question archangle. i would assume it will be 17 days.

    Has it worked for anyone yet? My summary keeps changing to "Error retrieving order information." after entering my billing info.

    Their webserver is dying a horrible death. I don't think they fully appreciate how many people have been staying up to hammer that site.

  • BethrynBethryn Registered User regular
    I'm surprised people are trying to buy it the very second it's available. Nothing's happening until at least the 20th, which is plenty of download time for the client.

    So to save people a bunch of drama: when it demands your email address for linking your GW account? It wants the @plaync account name if you have one of those. To save you the 15 minutes of confusion as I yelled at my computer that it WAS the email address on that account and the correct password.

    I'm using Firefox, Windows 7. As soon as I fill out the form for registering an account, I get this message:

    Yes, we will provide an upgrade path if you have Standard Edition and wish to upgrade to Digital Deluxe. We will release more information on this in the future.

    (This is not me being a turd going RTFM; we actually just haven't released official details yet. :) )

    This happens when linking my account at the end, and I'll probably do it later today instead. It looks like whatever is connecting your web tier to the account system is .. not happy.

  • World as MythWorld as Myth Registered User regular
    I think it's a load issue - massive traffic. Keep trying, though.

    Really glad you guys at Arena.net are getting so many purchases that you guys are having server problems. Well, not glad about the fact that you guys are going to go without sleep for now, but you guys really deserve all these payments for the quality that we will receive when the product is done.

    Picking up my pre-purchase beta code from the CE at 10 when gamestop opens up. Incoming fun! (and huge drop in schoolwork during the first beta weekend)

    Getting a 502 error? We've got more information on that from Mike O'Brien:

    "We're working on this error now. Since you're seeing this error during the registration phase, you've already successfully purchased the game, and have a key you can use to complete registration any time. There's no need to stay up tonight waiting. :)" ~RB2

    This bug is a wild one, but we're all staying up to figure it out.

    I just thought of a Charr name "Charrizard", am I doin' this right?

    Edit: We should make a three-man team. Charrmander Elementalist, Charrmeleon Engineer, and I will be Charrizard a Warrior. Name ranking based on armor type, class based on ability to use fire.

    I love the Warrior Long Bow which is focused on fire damage. Now I just need to find someone who wants to be a fire Elementalist and a flametrowing Engineer.

    Oh, so if you buy the digital version it just emails you a key? That works, I have someone who's helping me pay for it, but they have to use their paypal account to do that.

    Also tried to log into NCSoft's site and GW1 a few minutes ago to make sure I could ever do HoM (Don't have EotN but maybe I will someday, wouldn't mind having a Black Moa) and found out that both were blocked, the NCSoft account being permanently blocked according to their site. Godammit, don't tell me some goose hijacked it and screwed me over. I fear that even if I get ANet to unblock my GW1 account (Which I emailed support right away), I'll be forever locked out of HoM thanks to NCSoft goosery. (assuming I ever bound my GW1 to them, I can't even remember).

    Yeah, you'll get an email from [email protected] with the key and a link to the registration page (link has key embedded by default).

    If you need to get your NCSoft account back, start digging up your cd-keys and the numbers for any credit cards you attached to the account for subscriptions and such. Oh, and you can check the Hall of Monuments to see if your GW account is linked to your NCSoft account. I believe you get 2 or 3 points for that.

    "Accounts Linked"

    Awww, crap. the worst part is I can't even tell if it's linked to the one I'm trying to get into or the one I tried to get into but it won't accept my birthdate password reminder thing.

    I just realized, what if you guys get one million pre-purchase orders? Can your beta servers handle that many people at once?

    Ok, it probably won't be a million like the beta opt-in, but a couple hundred thousand does sound reasonable in the next few days.

    That's what you call one of those good kinda problems.

    (In seriousness, I don't think we have an official line on this yet, but if you are able to pre-purchase, you're in.)

    I'd imagine at a certain point the beta servers are more or less live servers.

    Besides, stress testing is just as important as content testing. :V
