No restock today?

1 : Anonymous2021/09/16 13:34 ID: ppdemg

Finally was ready and on top of the Thursday morning restock. I've been told it's around 9AM EST. Was I misinformed?

2 : Anonymous2021/09/16 14:10 ID: hd2wwmz

anyone else get stuck on the captcha for 5 bloody minutes because the damn thing kept on insisting that you didn't know what a damn bus, or bicycle or crosswalk or traffic light, or chimney looked like?

I was right at the front of the goddamned line! 6 minute wait!

I got in, stock is available, I pick the 6800xt I've been chasing for months...

Please complete ReCaptcha... Please complete ReCaptcha... Please complete ReCaptcha... Please complete ReCaptcha... Please complete ReCaptcha... Please complete ReCaptcha... Please complete ReCaptcha... Sorry, out of stock, screw you!

I just finished identifying 800 goddamned fire hydrants for these assholes, only to get kicked out empty handed!!!

I'll never use a crosswalk ever again 😀

DAMMNNN brooooo....... can i have it tho?

ID: hd2x70v

Yes. Never been so frustrated with a captcha in my life

Maybe I am a bot

We are all bots on this blessed day

ID: hd2z1gh

well somehow i managed to land with 10 minutes which i know from statistical info regarding the lineup since it began, that within 7 minutes, you're not getting anything.

however i ended up at the order page, submitted your CC details and shipping info, got to the last page where you do the gaud damn captcha again which only required me to go through 3 times, because apparently it again said i couldn't identify mountains or hills... at this point i think captcha is now unsure what something is and is making it a lottery entirely, like is it now determining that a single picture with clearly a building filling the entire thing, that perhaps ONE of it's windows may be reflecting a hill or mountain, that might be a single pixel...?

Long story short, hit place order, and taken straight back to the "line is closed now"

ID: hd2yweu

I did. Kept going and I’ve allegedly got a card. I’ll believe it when it shows up.

ID: hd4febx

you must be blessed by the gods

Got in and it showed 6700 XT and 6900 XT available but the add to cart button does nothing. Thanks a bunch AMD...

Update: And now all gone, what a joke

ID: hd2y4jz

Same happened for me. AMD. It really doesn't help customer sentiment by pissing everyone off with a broken "line" every Thursday. I've gotten into the store twice in the last 5 weeks and both times this is what happens. It's so broken.

4 : Anonymous2021/09/16 13:52 ID: hd2uayb

Maybe its delayed because they have sooo many graphics cards its hard to stock count?

ID: hd3jmze

this is the answer.

5 : Anonymous2021/09/16 14:09 ID: hd2wmzm

All the way through checkout and then back to CATCHA!

ID: hd2yqya

Same here on a 6800 XT. All the way to the Place Order button. Click and back to CAPTCHA.

ID: hd2xa7g

Fuckkk, sorry man. Did you have multiple tabs open? Do you think they're cracking down on that?

ID: hd2ys86

Ditto.... what a sh#tshow

6 : Anonymous2021/09/16 14:23 ID: hd2ymxc

All the way to place order and it then kicked me back to the main page captcha.... Honestly, why can't a multi-billion dollar company like AMD implement an actual e-commerce site that works?

ID: hd37eia

Because this thread every thursday is their muse ! I bet they are laughing their asses off playing bingo with reddit comments

The one time I am at work and have some free time and there is no drop, sigh.

ID: hd2uf76

the first time I'm not travelling and I'm ready for it :(. Can you connect over mobile (just wondering for next week when I will likely be ready to board a damn plane lol)

8 : Anonymous2021/09/16 13:35 ID: hd2s3jx

Anytime between 9 and 1

9 : Anonymous2021/09/16 14:16 ID: hd2xobc

aaand the line is paused. Same time next week? :^)

10 : Anonymous2021/09/16 16:03 ID: hd3divu

I got a 6700xt on this drop but I agree when others curse those damn captchas

11 : Anonymous2021/09/16 13:38 ID: hd2sh39

The last 4 weeks it started at 9:05 CDT, the queue usually started ~20 minites before that. Give it another 10 minutes

ID: hd2sqiv

Is this the page I should be refreshing?

ID: hd2tadd

If you're in the US yes. You don't even need to spam refresh, it usually redirects you to the queue once it starts. You might get to the queue page a few seconds earlier if you refresh but it shouldn't matter, your position "in line" will be randomized once the event starts

ID: hd2tbp8

Yes, but not too often or you can be temporarily banned. It's a precarious process, unless you're a bot.

Im in queue estimated wait time more than 1 hour

ID: hd2x98n

I think I finally got a 6700xt in germany. Somehow had a 2 minute wait time, I got to yhe prder confirmation page and money was taken out of my account. Waiting to see if I get an email too

13 : Anonymous2021/09/16 14:15 ID: hd2xkg8

22 minutes, boy cant wait to find nothing but jack and shit to buy except for 900 usd 6700xts on ebay

14 : Anonymous2021/09/16 14:16 ID: hd2xqhg

First time getting in (and even right near the start of the line) after months, and now the site won’t let me add anything to cart? This is disgusting.

ID: hd2y0lh

you bet some scalper got 10 of those in time mate dont worry

ID: hd2yop5

Over the past 5 weeks I got into the store two times and that happened both times. Really bang up job on that storefront.

15 : Anonymous2021/09/16 14:18 ID: hd2y1pe

I had a queue time of 16 mins, this dropped to 5 mins, then sold out ;-;

16 : Anonymous2021/09/16 14:45 ID: hd31v9o

I hope intels dGPUs are competitive

17 : Anonymous2021/09/16 22:12 ID: hd4veti

there are bots that hacked the queue and are cleaning all the stock

18 : Anonymous2021/09/16 14:23 ID: hd2ynnt

With their perverse and deeply flawed lottery system, AMD has to be generating a lot of ill will - and ruining a lot of people's Thursday mornings. Strange a company would want to willingly do this to themselves.

ID: hd3d1z0

At least they try. Most other companies just srll to miners or scaloers for 2x MSRP.

ID: hd2zu9n

they're selling their units, they don't care.

19 : Anonymous2021/09/16 14:19 ID: hd2y3gp

Hate to flex but.... first try

God damn I'm stoked, I've been putting off PC upgrades waiting for prices to drop for two years.

Good luck to everyone who didn't get one today, keep on trying and you'll get lucky with the queue eventually.

ID: hd30ik4

Got a 6900. Ballsy changing your flair before it’s delivered though. I’m afraid to.

ID: hd3140b

Hahaha maybe I jinxed it, praying otherwise

ID: hd2zb4c

HOW?!!! multiple broswers open? sad that we have to resort to this to get a damn card!

ID: hd31841

Had one open on my desktop, last minute thought to open the site on my phone and tablet too but ended up not mattering b/c my desktop got put in the queue with only 1 min est wait time

It is sad, praying we can leave this behind soon...

ID: hd33u9m

Congrats man, had that exact card since November, it undervolts nice and runs quiet

ID: hd3mxr0

Yeeeaaaa I got the 6900 XT last week... Still hasn't shipped. They asked me to be patient and it might be 10 business days because they're manually verifying every order.

20 : Anonymous2021/09/16 14:31 ID: hd2zvxf

I got in and they had 6800xt in stock! Got all the way through, pressed complete order aaaaannddd it put me back in line. RIP. Never been closer than an hour in line

21 : Anonymous2021/09/16 14:39 ID: hd311nl

In previous drops, there was a loophole where you didn't have to solve captchas for every container. Now you have to solve captchas for every container, and they are a lot slower this time. I went from being able to create 150+ queues to less than 20. Luckily I already got a 6800XT and a 6800 before they fixed it. Anyway, good luck everyone!

23 : Anonymous2021/09/16 14:01 ID: hd2vm4z

It's up now

I think they fixed the multitab thing. Have different queue IDs but all the same queue duration. 13 minutes left for me.

24 : Anonymous2021/09/16 14:04 ID: hd2vyer

I'm trying the multiple container tabs thing, but either they can tell I'm doing that, or holy fuck they made the captchas crazy fucking hard.

25 : Anonymous2021/09/16 14:08 ID: hd2wk19

crazy hard and lengthy to get through

26 : Anonymous2021/09/16 14:06 ID: hd2wbug

are you supposed to do multiple tabs?!!!! i only have one

27 : Anonymous2021/09/16 14:11 ID: hd2x0cb

hard for us, but pretty easy for bots. So yeah, fuck us again.

28 : Anonymous2021/09/16 14:12 ID: hd2x4ba

So for the captures, do you guys include the pole for traffic lights? Camper vans as buses? Every pixel of a fire hydrant?

Asking for a friend

29 : Anonymous2021/09/16 14:14 ID: hd2xgid

No, I have 5 tabs, 3 of them are one hours. One of them is 53 minutes and the last one is 20 minutes. I am on Mac though.

34 : Anonymous2021/09/16 22:04 ID: hd4uap7

I got in the queue instant, 7 min, then after 15 min, 2 min, the cards were out of stock.

I guess AMD made minutes longer
