People need to take a step back, and realize that BioWare is doing this to make sure we have at log in the best possible play experience.
Horrid, perhaps - Even/Fair, Definately.

Wow. Simply amazing the sense of aaaugh that's already struck.

I stand with the sane majority, we'll get in when we get in. The whole "wave" thing has been known for quite awhile, and it does make sense as they monitor their hardware to be sure that everything goes shipshape.

I redeemed my code in late September, so I doubt I'll hear anything from them till tomorrow at the earliest. C'est la vie.

OP everyone with the ability to read understood that it was going to be a staggered start. Stop trolling forums with ridiculous demands when you knew full and well what was going on. I knew about the staggered start back in July and it turned me off to the pre-order. Once I got my hands on the beta it convinced me to pre-order and now I have to wait a few days for my hesitation.

However, what I do know is that the way Bioware is pushing this launch, people are not going to have as many issues as some other piss poor MMO launches that I've been a part of. It's like a roller coaster that seats 100 people but there are a million people in line. I'd rather have groups of 100 have their chance to get on the ride rather than have all million try to get on the ride at the same time, break the machine, and then everyone is pissed.

But again, it's like... my opinion, man.

They proved they could push a hell of alot more people in the game during their stress test the amount of people and servers in the game are not even a quarter of that its lame i know bioware could do better they have proven they could thats the whole point of a STRESS beta am i wrong?lol either way we will all be in patience is a virtue i just feel bioware teasing us and thats not cool i know they can do alot better buts its only 6 hours since first wave so never know.

You are currently biting the hand that is feeding you as the player base is the same people that will provide you with an income and from the forums that i'm reading (and you're apparently neglecting) you are not giving a good reason to pay.

I of course plan to pay regardless, i simply will not invest in any other games you release, and i will be sure to advise against purchases from your company as you are clearly too simple minded to simply read your own forums.

The waves are a bad idea - they are causing players to have extra time that others do not, splitting guilds up and are limiting the patience of your player base which has (again, according to your own forums) drastically begin to shatter. I can only imagine the chaos that will ensue when you stop sending waves today.

If you want to be the intelligent company that alot of people think you are - this last wave should very well include the remaining pre-orders.
As part of the player base, I can say that I am not upset. I'll get in when I get in.

Apparently early access is also a stress test.
The real reason is to avoid launching with way too many servers that all turn into ghost towns in a few months when people quit. It's a very smart move. By allowing people staggered access you can better guestimate the amount of servers needed, ease people onto them. What do you rather have? Wait a day or two and end up on a healthy server or start now sit in a 4 hour queue (or 11 hours in case of Aion launch) play with insane lag and end up with a server that's half empty 2 months from now. I rather wait 2 days.

Hello everyone,

We know you all have a lot to say about invites, early access and when waves are coming. In order to keep the forums tidy and conversations in one place please use this thread to discuss the topic as it has relevant official information, we will be closing this one.
