Guild Wars 2 - SOLD OUT? Uhh, what?!?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
509

So apparently Guild Wars 2 Digital Standard and Digital Deluxe editions are "sold out" on guildwars2.com - HOW?!?!?!?

These are DIGITALLY DISTRIBUTED versions of the game. So all of a sudden they have run out of the game data? Obviously not.

This appears to be an attempt to limit the number of people granted access to the beta live event weekend. It has also made me question buying this game anymore. Extremely annoyed at not being able to purchase a digital game that isn't even out yet so I could try the beta...

Discuss...

EDIT: I know this is a semi-rant, but come on! Why didn't they warn us of this so I could have bought it earlier?..

It's sold out because they have filled the amount of space available for the servers for the Beta

Clearly you have no idea what you're talking about. You can only pre-order the Collector's Edition at a retailer, and I am discussing the digital pre-orders. More so, the fact that ArenaNet/NCSoft have capped the beta access without any warning. I would have appreciated knowing that I wouldn't just be able to drop $80.00 the day of the beta weekend so I could have ordered it a while back.

Please re-read my post, this has already been pointed out.

I am asking peoples' opinion as to whether or not this is a good move on their part, as well as the fact they never warned of such cap before today.

Imagine if they oversold SO much such that comes beta weekend, the authentication servers crash. Unlimited nerdrage.

Or imagine they actually told us there would be limited beta access so people bought the game earlier.

If the game is that important to you, why didn't you get it earlier? I don't see anything wrong with them limited the number of orders.

It is a good move to avoid server overloads during the Beta weekends so they can avoid server issues so people can get a good idea of the game. I don't think it matters if they should have to tell people because either way there would be a limit and it would have been reached and there would still be unhappy people.

i think that wouldve caused a bigger problem. imagine all the people in the beta trying to purchase the game on 12:01 am april 10th in fear of the game "selling out."
