AMD sorry you are making it difficult for us

I was happy at first when I sow the new queue site, but ...😵

 

Is AMD know how frustration we are when you made the latest queue site?

AMD sorry but you are making it more difficult for us to never see the list. Staying for some time in queue and it says your turn will be soon and suddenly shocked the the EVENT HAS ENDED. 

Is this the queue every gamer was waiting for?

Re: AMD sorry you are making it difficult for us

Well - I was one of the first people in the queue -- joined when the counter started... and still didnt get a GPU!! This is ridiculous. I clicked on 6800XT, went through captcha.. nothing.. Tried 3 times, and got "Access Denied" on all following requests. I think bots bypassed the queue system.... again the only people who are getting the card is the ebay scalper. Dont buy from scalpers. 

 

AMD - if you are listening, please let me know how I can buy a card I was in the queue for, and that I clicked add to card, but never got it.. Just like every other time when bots attack.. Did not see any difference in the site behavior... .

Re: AMD sorry you are making it difficult for us

I have been trying for months and was so happy i got into the queue by luck today.. i went on to select the card, went through all the info, and at the end when i went to confirm order, it just kicked me out to main card screen.  when trying to repurchase, i could see a message that there was an issue with processing and to try again, each time same outcome.. in the end everything got sold out within a min.  very frustrating and disappointing.

Pretty much same experience. I think bots bypassed the queue, and helped themselves to the inventory. Good try AMD! Good Try!

Re: AMD sorry you are making it difficult for us

I was in queue and got ½ way til my turn and then it ended. These scalpers are making it extremely difficult for us regular consumers to get any PC parts.

Re: AMD sorry you are making it difficult for us

This means we will never buy a pc parts if we keep on waiting for the next generation because it's more powerful as everybody expect. 

All we can do for now is only keep on trying maybe 😂 ✌️ we get one by chance.

Re: AMD sorry you are making it difficult for us

AMD - listen - why is this so hard for you to prevent bot activity? Take the money ahead of time, make a list, 1 GPU per household address, CC, name, whatever -- de-dupe the list -- do some analytics on the list to make sure you are not selling to the same person... and then fulfill orders as you receive inventory.... periodically ask if people want a refund, or want to stay in the queue -- and give them an update on upcoming inventory and what their status is in the queue...

everything else you do is nascence, smoke and mirrors.. you are not solving the problem for the consumer.. you are just enriching the fyff scalpers inventory.  

Call me -- i will fix this problem for you for free....

Re: AMD sorry you are making it difficult for us

I'd rather pay for one now and have them ship it to me automatically when stock becomes available instead of sitting in a queue for 20 minutes just to let the scalpers jump to the front of the line and take everything 😤
