2). As much as they complain, it's not going to get them in any faster.

3). Yes, it's an excellent game and the best Beta I've ever played, BUT it's not the end all and be all of MMORPGs.... yet.

4). Do the words "MAY" and "UP TO" mean anything to anyone? Those are clearly stated on the preorder part where people go to reserve the game.

5). Only things that are completely 100% guaranteed in this life are death and taxes, and I'm not so sure about taxes.

Anyhow, this is my point of view, and by all means keep posting. I'm loving the tears.
you made my day lol

You guys realize this is early access right? Today isn't launch day. I haven't seen this level of an entitlement complex in a really long time. The game launches on the 20th, if you get in before that consider it an early christmas gift from BioWare. Stop feeling so entitled, and quite honestly, this isn't a very good representation of what gamers as like. So you can't get into a video game the day you want... and there's NOTHING better you can do with your time than sit here and ***** about it? Really? *shakes head*

I just want to put it down for the record that the way this early access program has been implemented is truly one of the most poorly conceived ideas that i've ever personally encountered in over 25 years of playing video games. I've personally participated in launches of 6 other mmo games, and there is nothing in those experiences that compares to how ridiculous this process is.

When you are dealing with a pre-launch even that is only for pre-order customers, after an extensive and massive beta testing period that was a huge success according to nearly all sources involved - it begs the huge question as to what is the limiting factor in the way you have chosen to roll out this game. I personally participated in the beta in a very limited way (not by choice, mind you, i just wasn't lucky enough to get a key) and was only online during the big thanksgiving weekend test. That test was wonderful - there were a huge number of servers, and a huge population of testers. The game performance was amazing.

So, ea/bw - what exactly are you afraid of?

The only way this should have been done is to have given all pre-orders (perhaps separated only by level of game purchased - i.e. Ce customers get 7 days, se get 5, e.g.) access at exactly the same time. Of course it will overload the servers and queues would ensue and all that - but that's what we all expect. Making your customers wait unknowingly with no idea how long it will be or when to expect an email is just adding insult to injury. A poor alternative would have been to send out emails with a set time and day that your access would be available.

I read in the top post how you are monitoring the server performance and are rolling waves based on server performance. Are you seriously saying you have to wonder at this point if your servers can perform up to the task - when you probably still have 90% of the launch day players yet to even be able to play? That is not at all a good message to be sending at the beginning of an mmo franchise.

At any rate, i love this game. I love bw. But i truly despise and am sickened by the way you chose to put your customers through so much stress for absolutely no good or justifiable reason.

I truly hope you improve, because this is a very very poor way to start out. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Why i play a game that prefer player more than other and give them an advantge when me and them pay same price all player must be on same state
now some player have an advantge over the other

shame ...
