Wow... I thought queues to get into WoW on high-pop server patch days were bad... I'm number 14,000+ in the store, estimated wait 3 hours... Not sure it's worth it.
I think it's a good move to have put the mount in the blizzard store.But I think, they should have wait another 1 or 2 weeks to do that tho. If it can get them more money, so they launch cataclysm more early... I won't say no ! (Ok, not gonna happen, but we still always hope)Anyway, yeah, everyone will have it now, kinda sucks but oh well, it's life.
10,252 on queue, 2 hours estimated... T_TI don't care if it is common, I will enjoy it since I'm tired of the same old mounts. And there will be some people who won't get the mount :P I was in queue and sudenly the connection closed =( epic fail... that little lag bumped me up to position 6,000!
The Blizzard store site isn't even loading for me...
(sees Blizz stock skyrocketing from a sudden influx of money)Man these guys are brilliant lol.Anyone else having an impossible time even accessing the Pet Store on wow website?I wasnt interested in the 2 seater rocket from the RAF until this. The RAF mount scales with the highest mount in your inventory.....my highest is 280%. So this purchase automatically gives me 2 mounts that are 310%...WOOT. Plus, never having to buy another mount with an alt seems OP. Well worth the 25 bucks.
In my view, it's going to be just like the Jenkins title. Extremely common and mostly used by those who aren't good enough, or have enough gold, to get one of the other mounts.Or perhaps it could be that there are a lot of people who think it is cool, or who are mount collectors, or any other number of reasons?
745.. 5 Min left ;)!
Server not responding. Anybody want to link to the actual item's url, so when it does come up people don't have to browse to it? Would be very thankful.
No it doesn't. This one only scales to 310 if you already have a 310. So you need the violet proto or something similar for this to be 310.
I REALLY want one, but I can't get in! (Load, please LOAD!)

The store isn't even loading for me either. :( Is there really a limit on how many are being sold?
I really doubt it. Who would want to make $25 x 1000, when they can make $25 x 15,000,000?
Poop! US Store crashed :(
The limit is probably only based on how many codes they prepared. Essentially, the stock is infinite, they just need to pump in more item codes.
The store isn't even loading for me either. :( Is there really a limit on how many are being sold?They probably only generated a certain amount of codes for the store to sell to customers. Once those codes run out, they will have to generate more codes and upload them to the store servers, which takes a bit of time so the stuff may show as sold out until more codes can be generated and uploaded. Or, at least that's how my company handles some of the downloadable content they sell.
Ha ha, I got in, but I'm "Position: 6665 - Estimated time: 1 hour", meaning, 6,665 people are purchasing their mount first. Man, I wish I were a Bliz investor!
10087 in que... one hour wait? seriously? for electronic purchases?Anyway, the mount looks cool in that I won't need to purchase upgrades for all my alts. As I hate doing the AH, that's great for me. (not that I can't... if I have to I make a killing. Just seems like more work than fun.)
Oh, and they probably released that celestial steed in this manner as a way to test their queueing method and how the Blizzard store servers will hold up when they place Blizzcon tickets on sale in a month or two so they at least have an approximation of how much extra hardware they will need to purchase and stand up to hopefully keep the blizzard store from crashing during Blizzcon Ticket Rush 2010.Plus, the extra cash probably doesn't hurt matters, either. :)
