Simply cannot fathom why Bioware isn't communicating how many people they've invited

I wouldn't really call this a complaint thread because I knew I wasn't going to get in for a few days anyways. That being said, this really perplexes me because I consider myself someone who likes to understand people/company's motives for doing things.

I cannot think of a single reason why bioware would not be communicating to us how many people have been invited so far or how many people were just invited in x wave.

There is no promise involved in this, there is no way they would have to go back on their word (because they are simply stating how many people have already been invited).

You could say perhaps its because they do not want people scrutinizing the size(s) of their waves, but honestly people who haven't gotten invited yet are going to complain about the wave sizes/frequency no matter what.

I just think that more communication and more transparency is a good thing. I am not saying that we DESERVE to know the size of the waves...like I said I just can't think of a good reason why bioware would not give us this simple piece of information.

I will hold off on saying ZOMGZ POOR COMMUNITY MANAGEMENT until I hear what some of you think...but if none of you can think of a good reason for it then I really don't know if there is any other conclusion that can be drawn

Post here if you think more transparency is almost always a good thing!

I second that opinion.

AT A MINIMUM THEY COULD POST WHAT DATE OF REDEMPTION THEY ARE UP TO!!!!

I preorded on 24 July and I'm wondering if I missed the email or if it went straight to junk mail or if there is some other problem?

I'm checking my router every 15 minutes to make sure it hasn't crashed etc.

The more information they give, the more people whine and complain.

The only reason that comes to mind is that the info would cause a large negative reaction which potentially means they havn't let many people in yet. Or they could just be overly cautious.

1.) You are not their boss.

2.) Our opinion rarely maters.

3.) It won't make things any better.

p.s I know it is harsh, but its true.

The simple truth is that it's not our business. What we want and what we get are two different things.
