Holy smokes...yeah, they screwed the pooch on this one. I got my first order in at 12:02 PST, payment pending for five minutes, then canceled due to payment failure, which is BS. I've never had a payment fail in 20 years on Ebay. Bumbled back onto the product page at 12:26, it was available again, bought again and payment/confirmation went through.
Totally forgot and checked at 12:03. Took a while for payment to go through but got one. First mythic edition for me. Thx tax return.
Well this is stupid. I got the "thank you for your order" page at 3:01et and now they cancelled my order. What gives??
Same thing here. Likely an issue with eBay and the number of orders going through. I had mine ordered when it still said under 2000 had sold. Really disappointed but I wonder if the "sold" count includes the cancelled orders.
I did get mine in the second "wave" though and everything looks better this way.
I got the 'pay my order' button at 9:01, got redirected to paypal and pressed buy. It said payment successful at 9:04 but when I looked at 'my ebay' it said that it was still processing my payment and now there is nothing at all anymore. So guess I got the short end of the stick.
Pretty stupid if you ask me that they allow to buy 2 orders per account when there are this few and it is sold out that fast.
Next time they really should partner with someone in europe and sell the same number of copies on our continent, even though I was ready with 2 screens and willing to pay the ridiculous taxes I still didn't get a chance.
On a sidenote, it was 103$ in tax (according to my checkout in ebay) and 14$ for shipping to Belgium for those that want to know.
EDIT: After writing this and reading some other comments saying to try again I did so and i managed to pick up 1 for myself and 1 for my friend who also had nothing and went to do something different when they sold out the first time. So thanks for the info guys
Still, I hope they separate the regions next time to make things a bit smoother.
Paypal allready sent the money with out shipping/tax for me and 216$ shiping/tax for my wife and we live in the same house
Will be interesting to see what we will get in the end (Sorry no Sets for you but two Boxtopper Booster for compensation. Regards Hasbro)
Somehow I doubt that they're going to just triple the production run. I suspect the additional "stock" is just the canceled orders getting loaded back into the system. I don't think their total sales numbers go down when an order gets canned...
The big question is how many of these are going to get canceled as it states on Wizards
Similar to Ravnica Allegiance Mythic Edition, War of the Spark Mythic Edition will be limited to only 12,000 units and will be available for sale on Hasbro's eBay store starting Wednesday, May 1 at 3 p.m. ET (noon PT/8 p.m. GMT). Limit 2 per person. There will be no reprints of War of the Spark Mythic Edition—once it's gone, it's gone.
As of right now it says on Ebay that 42,607 have sold in one hour
Im not sure what the hell is going on. The two I got no tax now appear in purchases but the two i got confirmed later with tax do not show up. I kinda hope I dont get hit for four eventually. What a mess
