  1. Hi so I'm wanting to pick up an Orbweaver Chroma in the sale tomorrow, but I'm scared they'll run out of stock within the first hour or so. The sale time in the UK is in the morning just as I get to school, so a no go there. Does anyone know from last year whether the stocks will go almost instantly or does it usually take a few hours?

    I remember last year being very chaotic and certain items can sell out within minutes. The Leviathan sold out in 10 minutes after realizing I didn't have enough funds Dx.
    That was also during the redemption sale after the bunce up that happened.

    Hey bro this thing is shitty than anything in the world cause razer has one of the biggest fan base in the entire world and for some reason every single one is very active on internet so we are talking about millions of people.If my math is correct the and if every person gets to get one product.the stocks our gonna run out in 10 mins.Even though you keep waiting before the sales start your browsers gonna crash and shit.Its like a oscar dude.Some tends to get it purely based on luck...Hope you get one

    There's no way to know how long something will be in stock on a particular Razerzone store during the CES sale. In the past some things have sold out in 30 seconds or less, while others lasted a day or more.

    Last year for the CES sale I was affected by the code mix-up and missed out on purchasing the Leviathan, but when they did the secondary sale and things were straightened out, I just picked something else and went with that. (I bought the Tactical Pro backpack and now I'm so glad I did!! Though I did still get the Leviathan later anyway)

    So, just plan on the servers being slow, dealing with lag, having things go out of stock exceedingly fast and don't feel positive that you'll be able to get your #1 choice, you may have to go with your #2 or #3 choice depending on how popular something is.

    I'd suggest asking your parents if they are free tomorrow to help you place the order while you're busy at school . If they do not know how to do it , you can show them by going to the razer site and adding items to cart and entering your details except not clicking confirm and don't forget to show them where to enter the code

    EDIT : Or you can also use your 3G at school to place the order , if you can't use it in class then seek permission to use the restroom and fish out your mobile phone and place the order secretly there

    1 hour could be a dream for sure for hot items.
    10 minutes, maybe.
    Last year Leviathan went away so quick that even a refresh or delay of loading the check out page could missed it.

    Luckily I got it last year. But yes, since the stock is not high, this could go very fast. Good luck!

    You guys are saying Leviathan goes out very quick, is it the same for Leviathan Mini?
     
  16. I Wouldn't imagine for it to be as bad, but it will probably still go quite quickly from my predictions

    I wouldnt expect much to last more than 10-15 minutes and that is pushing it.

    If it's a very popular item, we're talking minutes here. A lot of the chroma stuff was gone in under 2 minutes last year.
