Looks like high profile releases will now be managed by Queue It to prevent the official site going down, stop refresh mashing being necessary, and maybe even help stop scalpers.

Given that scalpers hammer the site on LE release days (plus real customers too) I would imagine that the effect isn't too dissimilar to a DDoS attack, so I would say this is probably a step in the right direction.

From what I've read all items are 1-per-customer, and once you checkout you're booted from the site and back into the queue if you wish to purchase more than one.
Alternatively you could open the site on multiple devices/using multiple browsers so that you can join the queue more than once - I imagine that scalpers could do this hundreds or more times, but from what people have been saying today the LE items were available for at least half an hour, rather than the usual minute and a half.
