thus pasting here are requested by a mod:

"So, long story short:

I pre-ordered my game trough a dutch shop listed here on the website: Bart Smit.
Payed 4.99 for the pre order code and 54.99 euros for the game, WHICH I didn't get because the game of course comes out on the 20th, NEITHER a game cd-key, because as well the key comes with the gmae itself, go figure.
So I got home, entered my pre ordered key, received the email confirmation for the early access (not granted tough) and now I read the following statement on

"Redeem a Product registration Code:
Your Product Registration Code is either packaged in the game box or was sent to the email tied to your EA/Origin account. In order to be granted game access and confirm which edition of the game you own, you need to redeem this code."

Now my question is:
Why do they pre order making you pay without giving out any keys trough their legit stores and then hit you in the face after you pay 5 euros? Simply said, I just payed for early access (even if it was for 1 day) just to hear that I will never be able to get it?

Any ideas anyone?
