Was it really worth the $70?

After playing Eq2 for a while i decided to try WoW. Problem is i could not find a copy anywhere!  So i decided to get one on ebay and pay for overnight ($70 total, $55game, $15Shipping) and im left wondering if it was worth it...well i think it was, i have already started to enjoy this game with a great deal cause its a get away when eq2 gets too frustrating.  you think i paid too much for something hard to get? i mean i DO enjoy it.

    Welp, let's see. It's 9.40 A.M. EST now. My last class ends at 11.30. TO get in the Jeep and drive 15 minutes home, cook ramon, and take in the trash barrels will take ~30 minutes. So, that makes it noon. Play until midnight Saturday. I think it was worth the 80 bucks that I paid for CE. image

    If you like the game then yes, but personally if you waited this long, you probably could have gotten it later at a local retail store.  Stores are always getting shipments in once to twice a week.  Just depends on how bad and fast one wants the game I suppose.

    Man, there are stacks and stack of this game at the WalMart here. I just wish it had come on a DVD instead of 4 CDs.

    yeah. There's a whole shelf of them at Best Buy and Wal Mart. Target had about 10 copies and EB and Babbages were out.

    I wonder if anyone out there knows that other places besides game stores sell them too? hehe. But, seriously, I don't know where you live. But in Kansas City you wont have any problems.

    But to answer your question, yes I think you paid a lot. You paid 5 bucks more than retail plus 15 to ship it next day.

    Now, I don't know everywhere you looked so I couldn't tell you if everyone was sold out or not. But, if the game was released 2 weeks ago and you hadn't gotten it then, then I would assume putting a reserve down at a store for it and waiting another 4 days wouldn't have hurt.

    Plus the money in a paypal account could be converted back to cash so you still could have taken 55 bucks out and had Paypal wired back into your Creditcard/checking account while you were waiting for a fresh shipment and still had 70 bucks left over for whatever.

    That's what I would have done

    wow! you couldn't find a copy ANYWHERE? Do you live in the US? That's amazing. But, I understand it , WoW is awesome. My Orc Hunter Finally hit 30 last night. I'm hoping to get into some more PVP action now!

    Yeah, prolly paid a tad much since it comes with a free month. But, hey if you are enjoying it then I say it's worth it.

    Well, the sooner you play WoW, the better you will be compared to all the people that are only getting WoW for Christmas. :)

    Blizzard is gonna start shipping (hopefully) more copies of WoW before Christmas.  So imagine the first week after Christmas, there's gonna be thousands of newbies that are gonna play WoW for the first time.  You don't wanna be stuck with them in the starting city, you definatly want to be at least Level 10 by the time Christmas hits to get "in the game" as fast as possible. :)

    I just hope the game you bought hadn't already been registered to the original user either....

    because you can run in a whole lotta problems with that. For example:

    Original Buyer: (dials up Blizzard). Hello, yes my name is John Doe and I think someone hijacked my account.

    Blizzard Support: What was your account name?

    Original Buyer: It was JohnnyJoons

    Blizzard Support: Ok can you verify the orginal mailing address and zip code plus the email address that the account was initially sign up under?

    Original Buyer: Yes, it was 123 Anywhere Plaza, Fredericksburg VA 22408. Email is JohnD@midsouth.rr.com

    Blizzard Support: Thank you. Can you verify your phone number?

    Original Buyer: Yes. It's 540.555.8777

    Blizzard Support: Thank you. One moment. Ok, can you verify the last four digits of the credit card used to set up your account?

    Original Buyer: Yes, it's 4447

    Blizzard Support: Thank you. I have reset the password and has been sent to JohnD@midsouth.rr.com. If you have any further questions please contact us. Also to avoid 3rd parties from using your account I would suggest you to stay away from 3rd party software and remember, GMs will never ask for your password.

    Original Buyer: Thanks!

    Blizzard Support: You're Welcome. Once Again my name is Brad #44224 and was your technical support a pleasurable one?

    Original Buyer: Yes, thanks!

    There EB here where I live was sold out for 2~4 days I think, Wal-Mart only had a dozen copies of WoW sitting around. But the store that had piles and piles of WoW was Future Shop!

    well i went back to him for a game time card (60 days)

     

    But i do have one question, if you dont have a CC but have a game time card do you still need a CC or just the 60 day card?

  • HawthornHawthorn Member UncommonPosts: 43

    No you don't need a CC if you got a game card.

     

  • EnigmaEnigma Member UncommonPosts: 11,384

    Ortisai

    If I were you I would seriously suggest you to make him sign an agreement stating he has

    1. Never opened the box

    2. Never registered the game

    Read my last statement int his thread. I know of at least 7 people who went through this. It's common for someone to sell a mmorpg (only to have registered it) and then "reactivate it" a month or so down the road. And since they were the original owners, you cannot do anything about it.

  • OrtisaiOrtisai Member Posts: 162

    i got it and it was sealed, if you register it once it cant be again plus i got paypal buyer protection.  now since i have the game time card when i do register it i dont need the cc right?

     

    plus the guy i bought from has 111 pos feedback with 100%. 


    And yes, i could not find the game anywhere and both ebgames and gamestop were back ordered
