I was up good and early trying to get a card, and no I was not using a bot. The only spamming I did was the refresh button. I was banned from all of the different sight urls. I get this message across all..
Here it is from the direct link:
Solved! Go to Solution.
I didn't understand this either. I received this message for doing the same thing when the 6800xt first arrived. I'm sure I wasn't the only person doing it, so how are you supposed to get a card??? Frustrating I'm sure.
I know, how are you suppose to see if it is in stock if you do not refresh!?.. AMD should have use sign into here and then have us purchase through the a url given to use in our message box.. AMD has there heads way up there rear ends and or lazy as hell.. I use to love this company but there actions lately seem very odd from the AMD I knew...
How long did it take before you didn't receive that message anymore? I believe its based off blocking your IP address most likely which makes sense because constantly refreshing the page is essentially the same thing as a DDOS attack and their servers are going to block you to reduce traffic.
Same for me. Did the exact same thing but only like once per second. Access Denied.
I can't really tell if it was a ban, but I think I wouldn't have had a chance to buy a GPU anyway without a bot infrastructure. The only thing I have is an automatic refresh bot (distill.io) which tells me when you can add selected products to your cart. I still have to do it manually if I ever have the chance.
I am from Germany btw so this could mean that access was actually denied on purpose, but I can only assume that.
I have even tried a flush and register dns as well as release and renew of ip still did not let me... Oh well another fail for AMD..
I had the same message at some point. It cleared after a few days, possibly after my home public IP changed.
Same thing happened to be with best buy and that also took about a week to fix itself (could also be due to a different public IP).
