3 strikes for me, so frustrating. It’s the furthest I got though. Total loss

    This is such a cluster f. I never saw anything just out of stock after horribly slow speeds.

    Lucky man; I was not even able to open the store. I think EVGA may open backorders after all of this after all.

    ...why would you refresh 8 hours consecutively prior to launch?

    I hope so but I will believe it when I see it. They have not been receptive to that idea.

    Re: After another hour fighting for a card 2020/09/24 08:12:10 (permalink)
    Same here. I've never had to try this hard to give a company $1800 in my entire life. I'm disgusted. 
     
    My "elite member" status means ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. 

    I get all the way through checkout, put in credit card, get past that point, ONE CLICK AWAY from having it... and boom the site errors, and then my fraud protection on my credit card kicks in. 
     
    I spent 1.5 hours dealing with this trash. I literally hate EVGA right now. This is the most despicably broken launch I've ever seen. I didn't even try to get a 3080, because I wanted all those people that wanted one to get one, without me being in the way. I give up. I no longer care. I'll just use my evga 2080Ti until I can find an asus card. 
     
    Thanks for nothing EVGA. Lifelong customer here... but this has me looking for greener pastures. I'm not going to let you monopolize my life for the next several weeks, fighting over this card. Either you let us backorder, or you can all get lost.

    I actually think that I added the one that I purchased via the regular store page - the elite page never did anything for me, other than show the 2 models (or various error pages).

    It was brutal.  Maybe the lowest point I've been in this experience was after the EVGA website crashed at launch of the cards and I was closed out after HOURS and HOURS of representations that the website would hold up.  :(

    That is absolutely brutal. Hang in there. Hopefully enough cards to go around this week!

    Would hold up? Or something more like "we're working on the checkout process"? Because it was definitely doing better for me than during the 3080 launch, or the 3080 FTW3 launch the day prior (I wanted a 3080 FTW).

    Definitely hoping for much more stock this week so I have a fighting chance at a 3080 or 3090.

    I didn't participate in the 3090 launch.  The 3080 the day before was impossible.  And yes, certain tweets -- and I don't blame the author (I think he was trying his best with imperfect information (and hope)) -- led us to believe that it would be operable.  That didn't happen for the 3080 drop last Wednesday.  I am hopeful the website has further improved.  Hope springs eternal.

    I am thinking that EVGA has been taking this time to try and fine tune everything moving forward. I would wait an extra week or two for them to build up stock, if I knew it meant I and others would be able to secure one without having to resort to F5ing or pit of despair everyday lol

    Very hopeful that more ultra's come out this week. Hopefully with more bot protections this time around.

    Yep. Glad at least one company is being open and transparent with their releases.

    I'd prefer to have it drop tomorrow, to be able to purchase a card, and then to pivot to actually getting work done and building my PC.

     That and the Strix are what I am after at this point.

    They really seem like the best if you want ultimate oc potential. Definitely leaning towards evga still for the warranty though.

    This timeline works best for me too, because tomorrow will be a nightmare if I have to try and battle bots for a card. Got a full caseload tomorrow, which sucks for possibility of stalking out for a card but good for business.
