Anyone managed to get trough ?

    PayPal option worked for me after a substantial amount of tries, registered and linked accounts now. :) Keep trying!

    Yes, no problems here.

    Do you have a different email address for your PayPal account? I've seen problems in other games where email addresses don't match.

    Their system is just bogged right now with so many people trying to pre-purchase. I paid with PayPal and it took me about 10 minutes of " Try Again" clicking til it finaly got through. My PayPal and Account emails are different, but it went through unlike some other systems where the email addresses need to match.

    Got through with paypal. If you get the "error retrieving order" error on the left, click retry. Second retry and the info updated and I was able to click the purchase button. Got code and paypal receipt almost instantly.

    I had trouble getting ht e registration page to accept my GW1 info, so I just created a new account and will link accounts later. (The support page faq says that you will be able to link accounts with a different email address, but they aren't sure when or how at this point).

    It's not greyed to me. I would try a different browser.
