Arma 3 Beta Release thread - Prices, times, regions etc all questions here.

Recommended Posts

I did purchase the supporter edition: it took me 1:15 hours of constant "reload"ing of the websites but eventually got through.

Paid with PayPal, and then received the PayPal confirmation forthwith and then 6 minutes later received the confirmation email with a download link. The email states as order status "Paid/Confirmed".

Weird thing is that I received this email now 3 times. Same content.

It has a download link - which doesn't work, because the website isn't. Loading properly....but I guess I have to wait for the servers to calm down.....

Has anyone who purchased the supporters edition received any order confirmations other than paypal?

I have gone through the hoops and kept my calm, only refreshing if and when the page timed out and eventually made it through the entire checkout.

Looking at the Order Information it still shows 'pending payment' and has done so for 35 minutes now, though they already have my money ;( sllooowwwwwwwwwwww!

Been trying to buy suporters Ed for nearly two hous now having to F5 every screen so much i loose count! Had the order confirmed, credit card chosen and nothing! no way to pay. Updated my account details with the req info as asked and done it again - and again - and again. No idea at all.

Hick said :- 1. Purchase was confirmed, and then there was a red PAY FOR PURCHASE button. Thought that was weird.

Well i never saw any red button, nothing!

because the bad shopsystem is not our problem. We are the customers and we pay money for the game to BIS. It is not first day BIS is living in the Internet world. They made the countdown, they knew exactly there will be a rush. It was their duty to organize the release accordingly, to prepare the host and the servers for high amount of connections.

Now we have 7 hours passed since we bought the game and we have absolutely NOTHING for our money. Even not an clear explonation when we will get the download links and the content. Either we have any maoney back transactions. But on the other side all Steam purchases and downloads run smoothly and without problems.

So we can make a conclusion, that this is just BIS who didnt prepare theirselves to the release and now is spitting upon their community and arma fans, who even wanted to support them more then others and now have to wait unknown period to start playing. Hope you can understand it.

Are the access codes sent via e-mail? I purchased earlier and got a confirmation from paypal but have yet to receive anything. Checked my account at the store and nothing there either.

@BISSTORE etc...

Can I suggest an 'Upgrade' to 'Supporter' option on the BIS Store for those who couldn't purchase the Supporter Edition today. I ended up getting the Alpha version from Steam as the BIS Store was dead and at the speed my internet runs it'll take about 15 hours to download :(

So I had the Arma 3 alpha in my shopping cart ready to purchase for $25, but the store would never load. Now it's gone and they don't even have the game on the website. Seriously wtf. I'm expecting to get the game for that price now.

It's on steam for the same price but I'm hoping to not have to go that route.

Same here, after seeing that price and actually getting to payment before another page delayed things this morning, followed by the BI Store going down for hours seemingly, I'm waiting on the $25 deal at BI Store again before I pick up the Alpha.

I bought the SE about 11-12 hours ago. Does anyone know why the SE is $74.64 for me and not $91.99? I thought it was due to VAT but the prices didn't change the other editions.

If you mean the Alpha Lite invite keys, those aren't distributed until March 14th; this was announced well before the alpha release.

yea i had the issue this morning, had the product in my cart lastnight, but connection to the store dropped as I was doing the purchase. Loaded the site this morning and it was removed from my cart, couldn't find A3 at all from the store. Had to go through the A3 website which then added it to the cart in the store..

Is there a non-steam version available? I only see steam versions in the BI store for the higher prices. I wouldn't mind buying the supporter edition but I won't buy anything related to steam.
