Yeah, like we all didn't see the store exploding.

The annoying thing is, this is a simple thing to have foresight into and prepare for. You load test the system. You insure things work properly internally (which seems to be the problem I've been having. . . authentication issues, password reset problems, etc) before something big like this happens. It's difficult, but straight forward for anyone who's been doing web commerce for any period of time. Why Blizzard hasn't done it (which I say purely based on the evidence provided by the store being buggered) is a mystery to me.

Sometimes an incoming, inevitable workload is so huge that it's impossible to prepare fully for it, and you have to resign yourself you being broken and disorganized for a few days.Especially w/ electronics. It's all limited by processing power and bandwidth, something that, at a certain point, no amount of preparation can improve or increase.
