This amiibo pre-order simulator made with WarioWare: D.I.Y. perfectly sums it up

Ordering your favorite amiibo figures — or, in most cases, trying to order — can sometimes feel like pure, consumer-driven chaos. The most popular figures sell out while you're frantically trying to get the website to load. Your in-person efforts result in massive lines with no reward. Now, thanks to YouTube Channel EpicExcuse and a new mini-game made in WarioWare: D.I.Y., you don't have to wait for the next amiibo rush to experience frustration.

Dubbed "WarioWare: D.I.Y. Amiibo Minigame- F5 Simulator," this downloadable mini-game sees players trying to place an order before time runs out. It's basically summed up like this:

Refresh. Refresh, refresh, refresh refresh refresh refreshrefreshrefreshrefresh dear God come on refresh ORDERS OPEN GO GO GO wait sold out are you kidding me right now?

You can watch it in action above. As a bonus, the mini-game also includes Wario glaring at you with profound and serious scorn every time you fail, which is about what we imagine every time, too. Unfortunately, it excludes the part where we hurl our computers out the window, because dammit, we needed that piece of plastic and nothing even matters anymore.
