Quote from foam_dome »So for those of you who are actually getting their boxes:
What time did you first attempt to purchase it, and what time did your payment finish processing? I'm trying to get a general idea of when the 12,000 limit was reached.
I first tried to order at around 12:00:45 Pacific time, but my payment was pending and eventually got canceled. I then managed to "successfully" buy two at 12:23.
I wonder if my initial order was within the first 12,000 attempted, after discounting all the bots.
Quote from DanzBorin »I see the same kinds of comments with almost every limited edition product sold. People are always mad because they didn't get one. I understand it's frustrating, but if the demand outweighs the supply there is going to be an issue. Same thing would happen if it was a physical sale. I think it's just going to be something we will have to comes to terms with. It's happened how many times now and we keep hearing the same outrage? Between these and the Planeswalker exclusives it should be well known. I think at some point you have to accept that it could never get better.
Maybe they just hold a lotto and pull names from a hat. I know from experience that pisses people off as well.
