    EB's website feels just like it did at 8am.

    Errors ending with it telling me I can't log in any more and I have the wrong password... brilliant.

    Managed to get a second round preorder from EB. Email confirmation received.

    I believe the trick is to have your credit card on file so you can just click the Pay button during checkout.

    maybe they tweaked the ordering process to break bots, that'd be nice.

    Is there any way to add that without actually making a purchase? Or did yo have to do that last time you purchased something (I keep ticking that button hoping it would accept it and skip that step next time with no luck).

    I actually ordered a $3 pencil earlier today in order to save my card. Played a hunch and won I guess.

    They've got Cloudflare DDoS protection on it, but it's also fairly trivial to make a bot that orders from a dozen IPs from various cloud providers and/or zombie machines.

    You know, I seriously considered doing something like that this morning... seems maybe I should have.

    At this point I'm tapping out, I'll might try again later... or just wait for stock on/after Oct 10.

    Yeah, give it time. Also if you've paid by CC then they'll have records of it or you can charge back if there is dramas

    55 minutes, and the X is gone.

    Allow me to issue a public apology: my prediction was off by 5 minutes.

    Well, that is a whole lot easier than taking on eBay I guess. Token effort.

    And speaking of eBay, it's filling up with pre-orders by the second. Some of the asking prices are eye-watering.

    2020 just keeps on delivering the goods, friends.

    At least it'll all be over in November when the world ends.

    It’s a shame so many people are going to miss out on playing those exclusive launch games come November 10!
