I missed my first Day 1 ever

Thanks to the staggered head start I've now officially missed my first "day 1 experience" ever....
and honostly I'm quite angry abou it.
Why?

Well, first of all let me point out that I've played about a dozen major subscription-based MMOs so far and I've ALWAYS played from day 1 on (day 1 of early access that is).

I just love the excitement and also the chaos that the first day of an MMO launch brings with it: server crashes, hundreds of players shouting and jumping onto the same MOB, you name it. Most importantly the fact and bragging rights of being able to say: I've seen the chaos and I was there on day 1/have been in the game since day 1.

Now I don't even have the chance to start on even terms, and choose the character name(s) I want.

I couldn't care less about a "smooth" start because it's unrealistic in ANY CASE and as an MMO player I'm not only used to a bumpy start I EXPECT/WANT one!

Bioware might think that all the single player RPG's players they attract might be uncomfortable with a chaotic start but I personally feel betrayed of the best experience one can have as an online player:

Playing on day 1!

No other day will be quite like that...

If they are so afraid of their precious starting areas, why don't they at least open up "character creation" so we can at least reserve our names and fiddle with the appearances of our avatars?!?

Have I mentioned that I'm really mad yet?

HAHAHA...I was thinking the same thing tho not quite so seriously....

This will be the first "day 1" I have ever missed from a game that I pre-ordered and beta played and that goes all the way back to beta UO hehe

Um... it was going to start the EGA on the 15th... these are bonus days... with a potential for more early access available to you than originally.

At least wait until the 15th to complain.

That's exactly what they're trying to avoid.
