Did we hold back access or service to America when we invented the following...

The Mechanical Computer
The Electronic Computer
Steam Power
The Seed Drill
The Seismograph
The Umbrella
The Lawnmower
The Fax Machine
Depth Charges
Scuba Suits

I could go i shall.

The Television
The Telephone
The Hovercraft
The Jet Engine
The Combustion Engine
The Periodic Table

The internet...

Pretty sure you had equal treatment in distribution in most if not all of these things. So show us some love for your computer games

EDIT: And by "we", i mean the English/Scottish.

Aaand don't forget about online services that will be up soon after game launch (, etc.) i'm sure you will be able to buy prepaid online much lower then that same thing is with WoW atm

I'm student so I make any job I can find... ahh and i pay for study 550 PLN/month soo I am very rich person ;P ...

About pre paids I remember on allegro they were a bit cheaper 80 PLN or so. But what I was trying to do is compare game prices in Poland and rest of EU...

PS. At least germans are selling they games cheap in Poland Gothic & Gothic 2 for ever the best :]

+1 from another pre-ordering, euro-paying swede.

Go us .

On a side note: yesterday I was playing a bit of Lord of the Rings online, at 13:30 I filed a support ticket, 13:36 it was resolved and closed by a senior game master. I asked him where he was and he said eastern US. Admittedly, LOTRO has been up and running in the US for about a year or so (and several years before that in europe), here's hoping BW can make something like that happen somewhere along the line as well.

Oh I dunno, the fact that the game was made in the first place?

The fact that all the preorders have a chance to play before regular launch customers? (regardless of when)

Why the hell would you bother complaining? Or trolling a post that doesn't even concern you? Seems like you've got too much time on your hands.

Personally, i think the staggered launch was a good idea.

Also, I understand that there is a cutoff point each day, where you want to go home, have some rest, and let a skeleton crew run things until the major part of staff gets back and gets things rolling again.

However, what i do not understand is that why, now that launch is here, Bioware Europe is held back by US office times.

The European Servers are almost empty. Who is on there, has moved on from the starting areas. Bioware Europe staff is clocking in as I write.

Why isn't Bioware Europe getting it's next share of invites? Why are they held back?

Here in Europe, were the working day just started, there is absolutly no reason not to have another wave of invites.

I ask this, not only because I am very anxious to start playing on my day off - wich i didn't take for the game, it IS my day off, my version of weekend. Not everyone works Mo-Fri 9-5 - but also for another reason, wich is important to me, and i think many Europeans

That reason is the following question: Will Europeans get European based and timed service, and it is a valid one. I know you are an US based company, but you have an Bioware Europe office, and European servers.

Based on that, we expect, and reasonably so, service wich caters to us.

Be honest, you would find it weird if a US based mercedes dealer would only operate during European workhours, would you not?

So please, inform us Europeans why our service, for wich we DO pay, is tied to US hours.

Oh, and to all posters: Thank you for staying civil in this thread!

I guess that didn't happen

I agree with you. We always have to wait until very late before anything happens from the game companies. I hope that if they throw events they will think about the time different.

10- No, but we can reliably decimate someone's economy. I vote Brazil next, personally. I hear they have tasty nuts.
11- Why would we need to know where France is? Every time we need France's help they get in boats and come help us. This one time we got into boats and helped France, but we got there from England. Which was nearby, and filled with people who speak a real language. American.
Oh boy, most of what you've said i can shrug off but your last line is utter trollop. the English made the language hence its got (En) next to your flag you nom.

Here's a nice link for you.

Same questions were addressed to europeans in a different vid, and some answered just as stupid..

Stop calling US, Euro, Russians or any other nation stupid..

Stupidity is a universal thing, the concentration of stupidity is a constant within every nation.
