I too paid for the pre-order last week. I actually paid an extra fee for pre-order with the impression I would be starting 5 days early. I'm not complaining because I am so looking forward to this game. On the other hand, I'm thinking $5 was wasted here. Had I known I wasn't going to get the full five days I would have waited for the game to come out and then purchased it. I do feel it is the responsibility of the consumer to research what they buy, but this one is a little iffy to me. I don't remember seeing anything about not getting the full five days.

In any event, I can wait. Its only $5 bucks. This did teach me a lesson. Any game I want to pre-order, I will either do so as soon as the option is available, or just wait for the game to come out. I can definately understand the technical reasons for this staggered approach to early entry, but I also paid for a 5 day head start. At least thats what I thought.

you didn't pay five extra dollars. go look at your account. the five dollars was nothing more than a place holder. you get the five dollars back. you didn't pay five dollars for early access....you need to read everything mosre carefully.
Just remember what ol' Jack Burton does when the earth quakes, and the poison arrows fall from the sky, and the pillars of Heaven shake. Yeah, Jack Burton just looks that big ol' storm right square in the eye and he says, "Give me your best shot, pal. I can take it."

Bad presumption to think everyone who bought it a little early...trawls the forums first.

I decided..what the hell..buy the game.

Every outlet the same..preorder, get 5 days early.

Yes, i understand the particular picking of words in their offer, but really, you dont expect a shafting from the word GO.

Bad presumption to assume that people would research a product before they buy it? so you mean you just decided to buy a game without checking out the website first or asking the employee at gamestop about it or reading about it on Origin...where you pre-order it digitally? Because it is all over origin too. it is all over the homepage. it isn't just on the forums. In fact...employees at game stores know about it too.

Interesting. This is copied directly from my invoice as a line item.

Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ Digital Deluxe Edition Pre-Order Fee (PC Download)

$5.00


I don't see anything about getting the $5 back. Why am I paying a fee for preordering the game after seeing a notice about a 5 day head start as part of the promotion? Perhaps you shouldn't assume everyone is an idiot. Some folks didn't pay extra for their preorder, but I did, with the idea I was getting 5 days head start. Apparently I didn't read some small print somewhere, but I'm not going to die over it. I paid for the collector's edition. I am obviously looking forward to playing. If I have to wait to the official launch day I'm not going to cry over it. Still, I think this whole thing was a bit misleading.

No real point arguing is there...but im not buying a car, or morgaging a house, Its a game, but even so, I dont expect ******** this early in.

Yes, legally they have done nothing wrong.

Legally.

In England however, we would call this , leading you down the garden path.

Stop arguing about this people. Noone gets screwed. We will all get in before the 20:th. It is not a malfunction going on. Just be patient. And for eveloper to open 2 days earlier then promised is just good news. not bad news. Dont be greedy. Yes I am dying while waiting myself, but you just got to take it easy and take deep breaths.

That is Origin's fee that you must pay, it has nothing to do with BioWare.
