Yey! I've got my mount! I'll rush home to log in as soon as my shift ends :P
Wow, they sure know how to make money!
Position 3831 and 25 minutes now. What a great company business plan. "I think we need more money... go create something that makes people go 'awww'. ***1 hour later.***"Done sir. You can now go buy a Tropical island. Might need another pet to staff it for a year though.""Make it so."
Released on my husband's birthday, even.Easiest. Present. Ever.(And one for me, too *cough*)
I don't care so much about bliz selling pets. I do raise my eyebrows at them selling mounts. Not that I'll complain as I'll now a 310% pet that won't take up an entire doorway. I wish all the fast mounts would scale so I could go back to riding my Argent Tournament birdie. So much prettier.
I got it for one reason - I have the Violet Proto Drake 310% mount. I don't much care for how it looks. I hate how big it is. But it's my main mount, since it's my only 310%, and why would I fly slower? This gets me a much nicer looking 310% to use as my "daily flyer".
wow... i've been at 13 minutes for about 15 minutes now... lol
27554- 6 hour Q time. WTF. IF they can't handle digital download buys that scares me. SO it tells me that I am supposed to sit here waiting for 6 hours to get a 15 minute window to buy. Guess I wont get one since i have to leave work and go home. Fail Blizzard.
It doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me because it seems like it should be automated. Maybe the programmers just think it's a hoot. I've been at 13 minutes for over 25 minutes now... sigh. Looks like the hour prediction at the start is correct.
Looks to me like they're testing the system they will be using for BlizzCon tickets.P.S: got mine after ~20 minutes.
Got mine! Not too bad of a wait. :D
Still don't have mine... i'm guessing it got hung up somehow. grrr 13 minutes hasn't refreshed and it's an hour later.
I find in funny that all the people complaining about it costing money dont realized that the TCG rewards (mounts or otherwise old or new) also cost RL money. The only difference is that its a flat cost, compared to a chance per booster vs cost, or ebay.. and slightly more direct. On the note of seeing everyone flying around with these: When the KT and monk came out, everyone had to flaunt that they had it. Now i only see a few people compared to the dozens a day then it first came out. The $25 price tag will stop some from getting it, like the pets, and eventually it might die down when the question of what hard to get mount should i flaunt jumps into peoples' heads.
