The Hand finished were gone before the email went out.

Edit: Apparently someone did score on the drop

I clicked on the link 3 mins after the email went out (yeah, I know 3 mins is an eternity for these things), and only the standard was left. They were gone fast.

Release link was also supposed to be sent out between 9:30-12 GMT. They could t even keep with their own release details. Another sloppy over hyped drop.

Even their calendar link in their email put a reminder in my calendar for 5:30am EST.

Yup clearly stated registration ended at 9:00am GMT Link between 9:30-12. It's whatever but I wish I didn't wake up at 5:30 am EST for drymounting nothing.

if you double checked the "final call" link on the page, the time was changed from 9:30 - 12 GMT to 9 to 12 noon (UK TIME)

So since UK is currently on BST, times would have been 4-7 eastern

knowing this, I still overslept by about 2 minutes

If anybody scored a hand finished and wants to talk a trade, etc. please let me know.
