D&D Next epic fail

I still have not been able to download the next version av D&D, have not gotten any new link as a replacement for faulty links (which I found out abouf of their existence from a podcast) and still a HTTP error when I try to access the tab to contact WotC to tell them it does not work.

The guys who work with computers at WotC: epic fail, guys!

Should the documents happen to find their way to me some how, I would love to take a peek. The likelihood of WotC getting even a cent from me is now pretty slim, though...

  1. Are you getting to that customer service page? I got the files the first day by search for "d&d next" from there. (Also try "dnd next", not sure what I did exactly)

  2. I get the customer service page, but from there it's broken. I'll do one more attempt by putting in a search and see what happens.

    Thanks for the hint!

  3. I got mine later that evening. I think the only fail here is they woefully underestimated the interest people would have in this.

    You can do all the load testing you want, but if your estimates are off, way off, then it won't help.

    I got the faulty link as well. I just sent in another request and then I got in. You might try that.

  4. Thanks, I'll see if I'll bother.

    Thanks for the helpful suggestion, though. I'm really running out of enthusiasm now.

  6. Joe,

    That's one of the pages that shows:
    HTTP Error 400. The request URL is invalid.

    Sadly. :(

  7. I tried the link with Chrome and had no luck, but it worked with IE.

  9. Many thanks for all the helpful feedback!

    I have now been able to download the playtest package. Considering that I wasn't all that interested to begin with, I have surprised myself by really wanting to get in on this.

    Community support rocks!
