Then they let you in based on your number. Its like boarding an airplane
... That's a pretty big "If" though. Just as likely that they printed out all of them at once. Or maybe had only a couple of batches. And if that's the case, there's no real way of knowing other than when they were redeemed. Remember, they're dealing with both digital AND retail copies here.

I'm not trying to be a dick here, I'm just saying that having people redeem random codes for access isn't exactly a new thing.

Have they made it more convoluted than needed? Absolutely. Do they need to work on their communication? Yep, totally. Should they have anticipated that giving people preorder codes wouldn't in and of itself prompt them to attach it to their accounts? Probably not. Especially when these forums have been abuzz with discussions about preorder codes pretty much since they existed.
