I am in the same boat as 98% others who wanted to buy Nvidia RTX 3080. Didn’t get one on the launch day.
Around 15 minutes before sale start the site already reported that it was out of stock, then went to different wording saying the same thing of being out of stock. And then almost two hours after sale was supposed to start I managed to add one in cart.
I got all the way to billing information step until the site crashed giving out HTTP errors 503 and 504.
After the errors 503 and 504 when the site recovered it brought me back to cart and said my cart was empty. I tried going back to main Nvidia site but it said out of stock so couldn’t add one to my cart. Then I tried using the back button on my browser but it kept bringing me back to the empty cart.
I wish the store would reserve the products in cart in case the site crashes, makes me feel robbed that I actually had one in cart and still didn’t manage to get it.
The worst thing in all of this was that I decided to purchase the founders edition and only Nvidia store sells it.
The other retailers in Finland started selling the card a whole hour before Nvidia. And those sold out in 10 minutes anyway.
Nvidia store restocks on the founders edition cards on Monday 21.09.2020, hopefully I have better luck then. But even with luck the estimated time previous stock sold out was just 30 seconds or less.
Was playing Dead by Daylight and after the game had ended someone tried to blame it on the team that he died. When no one reacted they possible thought that we either had chat disabled or left the game.
So to get that message 100% heard they turned to Steam profile commenting.
First, the game is intended to play as survive at all costs without hinting towards playing as a team. So that isn’t even required part to this game.
Second, it’s not particularly competitive game either, even if it does feature an online ranking. Which is in the process of being hidden from other players and made meaningless through other pending updates. Even thought it already is meaningless since it only represents how much of the game you play monthly.
Was playing Dead by Daylight and someone who I was in the same game with added me on Steam. After I accepted the invite they only sent me one message and deleted me right away after that.
All I did in that game was to kill the survivors while slightly giving them more chances of escaping by not “tryharding”, whatever that word means..
Someone did disconnect very early on from the game, I didn’t see, chase, hit or hook the person who disconnected.
Often when someone disconnects early on the game tends to lean towards farming points which I find very boring and time consuming, usually giving less bloodpoints compared to normal games also due to lack of chases.
I do sometimes farm if I have already played a lot of games previously but if I start farming right at the start of my play session it usually kills my flow and I don’t have any will to continue playing for much longer.
And in this case it was early in my session so.. Didn’t farm.
My will to farm bloodpoints on disconnects has been going down a lot because people disconnect when they are losing making the game often a free win for the killer. I don’t want a free win or to farm, I just want to play the game. Stop disconnecting on purpose and just take the loss.
The person who sent me that message on Steam has played this game for a lot of hours, surely you can accept a loss by now? Just calm down, it’s only a game.
Screenshot showing the play hours of the person. Note that the profile page is only visible to friends and I had opened it before he deleted me from his friends.
This what you unfortunately have to be exposed to when playing multiplayer video games online if you leave the chat ability turned on and only is one example of many.
Options for text and voice chat
Most of the chat which occurred during the game in question
And when I didn’t react or reply to that in any way they probably assumed I had chat turned off and sent me a friend invite on the Steam platform, which I accepted to see what else they had to say to me knowing full well that it was going continue the same style what I got to know while playing against this person.
And I was correct, same thing continued for one more sentence until they decided go to sleep as it was close 3 o’clock in the morning.
The message in Steam friends chat roughly translates to “rare to see someone play as crappy as you play”.
