Iv been watching these threads pop up for awhile now complaining about this or that. About how they we're ripped off $5 ($5 is a myth you never payed $5 extra) about how they bought early and other are getting in before them and so on and so on...

So some numbers

At last count there were 939,358 pre-orders (a bit more im sure even now) oh and thats only for the US. So add Europe, Asia, Africa, South America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand (im sure im forgotten a few places if so im sorry) but to keep it simple lets just say 3 Million. Im sure its way under but its a nice number.


That's one hellish large number to just open the gate to and let run amok, remember even with all the Beta's and stress test these are all still new systems and servers. Plus no matter how much ya test your always gonna find somebody that can break things better then you.

So by easing everyone in its good for all, (With that number the first few days would not have been playable IF the server could even have coped with such a high demand so fast.

Everyone who worked on this game have put a few years into getting it to this point and will carry on working on it for the future so its very understandable they they feel a bit protective about it

And for the chaps that got in earlier then others even though they ordered later? Luck... Again 3,000,000 pre-orders to admin so a few are going to get through now and then.

But i have to admit i do feel a bit of envy...
If being able to play this game a few days early is all you have to worry about with how things are going at the moment then yea, im envious of you...

Hope everyone enjoys the game and happy hunting
