Just wondering. I think they are randomly inviting instead of the order people bought it. Which is BS.... But what ever.
Ordered from Gamestop on 7/21...redeemed code on 7/22...got in early access on 12/13 (email received at 8:09am CST).

If Gamestop (I'm english, so don't know much about them) have been advertising wrongly, then sure go and complain for the sake of five days.

Every MMO I have played from launch had a rough start, and to be honest this is the smoothest I've seen. Sure I only pre-ordered early dec and dissapointed I have to wait til tomorrow / later, but for the time I have to wait for probably the amount of time I'll spend playing, it outweighs it greatly.

From the sounds of it, your almost craving access to the game, which from a Bioware perspective is great, your gonna play it loads. The extra day or two wait isn't going to kill you is it? AFAIK, you didnt PAY for early access, it's just a bonus of pre-ordering, and in the terms and conditions you clicked "I agree" to without reading, it probably protects them legally before you try and go all legal on their ***.

TLR Chill, wait and I'm sure you'll be playing and enjoying the game soon.
EULA and Terms of Agreement are actually completely worthless in court. Its not a binding contract in the USA unless you sign your name. Also it has no age check on it, so its completely invalid as with no age check, its illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to enter into a binding contract. All the EULA does is give them the right to ban you without refund. Its the only reason its even there. So they can make extra money off the botters.

Of course this game isn't going to last long. Just went and looked out of curiosity... Theres already three bots running around in game you can buy. Botters are getting in before regular customers.

Way to go Bio-Ware. Give the botters a head start on your paying customers.....

Personally if they are having problems here then they are likely gonna have big problems at launch
You didn't pay $5 for early game access. You paid $5 to reserve a copy of the game. You aren't entitled to anything other than the pre-order crystal. Up to 5 days does not mean you are garunteed any EGA time at all.

If you waited till the 7th, the day they said EGA would be the 13th, to preorder when we've known for months that EGA was based on a first come first serve basis on when you registered your pre-order you fail. You then fail twice as hard for complaining becasue you failed.

I said I wasn't going to respond to any of these QQ posts, but you sir have pushed my buttons.

BW have NEVER stated you WILL get a week, ever. If Gamestop did then they miscommunicated the brief, or perhaps you misread it? Either way, your spleen venting should be directed at Gamestop or yourself.

Yep that will show them. And while all your friends and the rest of the planet is enjoying themselves you can be secure that your proportional and mature response is really sticking it to BW. Go, you!

Well that’s unfortunate but not Bioware’s fault. Exactly when did you redeem your code? Not sure you’ve answered that. Everyone I know has been getting in about when they should, including your buddies it would seem.

It has been thought out very well and it working very well. The only people who don't think that are those that didn’t read the guidance, or rather, read what they WANTED to read from the guidance and those that seem to have a self-entitlement complex. Bizarrely it often seems to be the same people who fall into both categories.

Lol what? Some dude who works for Bioware is not Bioware the company. Of do you think on their recruitment they say "only mean ****** bags need apply".

Calm down, pop a pill, have a beer or whatever but please stop stamping your foot like my 5 year old son. You are embarrasing yourself and frankly pissing off everyone else.

I really hope the idiots that threaten to not play really follow through. It's funny, I got into EGA on 12/13 but have not been able to play because of work/travel/crappy laptop. However, the mass whining and complaining on the forums has been well worth wait. In fact, I am starting to think Bioware did EGA to provide entertainment on the forums for customers that have a brain.
