Pre-Order Fee

Does anyone else find it a little screwed up that we payed a $5.00 pre-order fee for pre-ordering the game, only to be told that we have to wait longer to play because we didn't give them money quicker than others?

I mean, if I am already paying more for the game just to have the digital special edition and I am paying more for giving them the money before they have even launched their game which makes things more convenient for them, shouldn't I be entitled to play the full 7 days of Early Access?

That $5 dollars would account for what is 33% of a month's subscription which accounts for nearly 10 days of game play based on a 30 day month.
(based on the subscription price of other games '$14.99' )

This is a fee I payed merely for their own convenience of having received payment for a copy of their game before it has been released.

Our pre-order has provided them perspective on what they can expect when the game starts. How powerful to build their servers and their connections and to tweak any settings based on the server preformance from beta vs. the amount of people who have pre-ordered.

This has all been for their convenience and preparation.
So why should we be paying an extra fee only to be discriminated amongst those who have all paid this fee, based upon when they paid this fee?

- Early Access should be open to all who have paid for it.

i do kind of share the same view as OP 45 is the most i've spent on a standard editon MMO before 5 being for a pre-order and with that we get into the game early which we won't looking at it now

Hey there!

We currently have an ongoing discussion regarding Early Game Access, so please feel free to join in here:

That being said, we're going to go ahead and close this thread as it is off-topic to this forum.

Thanks for understanding!
