Awesome! :)Thanks for posting these, I had to pre-order as I was sick :(
Wish I lived near one of those events, my line was pretty lackluster. Still glad to have my copy!
I did not have a line at all ^^Thanks for sharing ;)
That balloon murloc is really cool. :)
Wish I lived near one of those places where they had pretty large crowds. Midnight sales in Istanbul was pretty dumb and I am so frustrated that they have ran out of collector's edition copies very quick :(
The Gamestop in Killeen, TX had about 50 people. I of course was dead last because i was playing wow until 11:30 >< It took me about 1.5hrs waiting to get the game. I was on until 5am, I just couldn't stay up any longer than that lol.edit: the people in my line gave the appearance it was the first public event they had participated in since they started playing wow, haha...
Well I waited outside about 50 min before they opened the door here at Kupolen in BorlĂ€nge, Sweden. Were around 50 ppl before me in line. When they opened roughly 200 people were waiting, at least what I could hear.Heard lots of stories, people haveing LANs, not going to school or work and all that stuff =)While I stood in that line I realized I was one of maybe 5 ppl that I could see (from over 100+ people near me) that were over 20 years old. I need to grow up, but it can wait a cupple of years =)
I want mad skills to make one of those balloon murlocs >.>
Are those pictures INSIDE the post? Well that's new! :DInteresting pictures, haha at this one. :P Looks like you had fun!
I overheard a guy who was #34-ish in line at Anaheim say that a couple of guys !@#$ed all over the Frozen Throne sculpture, and after some semi-failed attempts at cleaning it up, people still were getting their pictures taken on it.I don't know how true that was. Ew. :s
i was by the sf one but didnt have a car to drive to it since bart doesnt run after midnight or i would of gone. i love going to midnight releases they are sooooo much fun! i've only mostly been to midnight movie releases like for star wars 3 (witch came out on bday) and like 5 others. they are a lot of fun!
So that's where all the collector's editions went..holy crap!I lined up outside the Future Shop closest to me (I love just north of Toronto, Ontario - that's Canada for the uninformed). I thought I was gonna be crazy, but I went at 9PM (when they closed normal hours). Turns out there was one pair of people there who were hanging around since 8 - and another group shortly after us. From there we started getting some others around 10 and on...I think we had about 60-70 total, didn't count.First guy in line got a 100$ gift card; I was second, but he gave me a 20 since we were kinda in the line at the same time..so almost a quarter of my collectors was paid for..sweet!We got the WoW "!" hat with our purchase, and I was out of the store at 12:15...not too shabby.We only had 24 collectors editions in that store though...so..many people got screwed...too bad for them though, shoulda came earlier like me!
Nice lines! Wish I was there to pick up mah collecter's edition.
They didn't even do a midnight release where in Macon, GA. I was pretty bummed about it I had to wait for stores to open up around 9am to get my copy. The sad part about it is that I had my copy paid for about 2 months ago and they said that they were going to do the midnight release
Well i live in Clarksville GA and it was so funny...I went to the GameStop in gainsville and i was like 1/10 there plus they had 30 collecter's edition so i bought 3...then as soon as i got out of the store there was like every geek and nerd in NorthEast GA lined up...So i was realy lucky...Go in to store at 12:00am and leave at 12:05am with 3 collecter's edition so XD
We had a quite nice event here in Stockholm/Sweden at a store called Webhallen.After some issues with getting the line correct (which was like 600-1000 people, my approximations) we started preparing (with coffee and candy!) for the actual opening-event. There was two lines, one for guys who had costumes and one for us ordinary people who just wanted the game asap.Here's a video recorded by the staff, which might give a glimpse on how the event did look like:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Fq2kdGgVTwI think I was out from the store around 12:46am local time, with my brand new collectors edition, signed and in my hand.
