In theory, I have... but I'm not so sure. It was so... painless for me. I did see some 503 errors when things hit 11 and the "race" started, but for me nothing really blew up or anything. I was in, information, and order confirmed. With all the news of Pre-order Shenanigans, I'm holding my breath at the moment that the shoe won't drop me a "We're Sorry" message. That the order can't be completed. On top of that, this apparent "victory" is partially pyrrhic. Pre-2020, there was a plan to save up and get not only a fresh box of tech, but a new tv as well. Unless the stars change for the better, I'll be playing on my increasingly long in the tooth 12 year old (more or less) 1080 tv. Frankly I shouldn't really be grabbing anything in the upper hundreds this year that doesn't feed or protect but, man... I want something nice this year, should it be allowed.
