Are you serious JustTed? He never said he was entitled to anything. All the OP said was that if bioware wants to do well they should learn to communicate with their costumers rather then just make vague posts. I don't see what's so hard to understand about his post.

To the OP I think this is a great post and really hit the nail on the head, thanks for taking the time to write it up. I hope people from bioware read it and pass the message on.

You agreed to the following: between now and the 19th.
Yep, no complaints about whenever I get in... just a request to learn now when it will be. In the last beta weekend test, my time started on Saturday, and that was fine. I knew well in advance.

Why not do the same for access? I'll then happily go off and do other things before my date comes, then see if I can plan a day off for when it does.

Everyone at B&N got their copy of Harry Potter. But at one store, even the wait was a good experience. They didn't have more books - just a better plan.

You have absolutely no case whatsoever.
My 'case' is two suggestions:
  • For Early Access - send the invites now, even the ones that won't activate for days, just as Bioware did with beta.
    Waiting is much easier when you know what to expect.
  • For launch: restore a one-week grace period for anyone who preordered, so everyone has access on launch day.
    Let us all play together. If EA insists on holding the CE for later delivery, then don't let the box determine the play date.

In the future, don't take time off from work because you "might" get to play early access of a GAME!

Hats off to the OP.

A little respect goes a long way in business.

So you are saying...if you tell 80% of your player base that has already shown a commitment to buy to Shut up and Color they may not like that?
