I'd say if you didn't pre order the game on the first day, you're definitely not getting in today. Once the first two days worth of waves go out, I'm sure it will pick up and everyone will be in the by the third day.

EGA is for the servers mainly. They have feelings too, you know.
Oh, i understand.

There's 106 servers at my last count. Just seems the numbers given early access so far is pretty paltry at best. What was the point of stressing the servers over the Weekend Beta tests if they're just going to play it safe?

He never said he was whining about time, but that people were.

What he wants to say is that the EGA isn't something they had to offer us in the first place, so be happy.

If someone gives you a present, and it turns out to just be a silly blanket you can't get mad, cus you weren't even supposed to get anything in the first place.
That's the bottom line.

I shall aim the same "reading" comment back at you fella.

No where did I accuse him personally of whining.

I said "people" will whine which is what they have been doing since the forums came up and over on Twitter.

But we all know how it is.
That's how the business bureau labeled it when I contacted them. They have received many complaints. 'The law UP TO' does not cover when money changes hand. As soon as they took a payment, the word UP TO means nothing. They have an obligation to define out the terms of the contract. This includes date and times of condition. The agency didn't think being told a time frame over a week was proper. I made my peace. If enough complain, Bioware will have to make theres.

Anybody who thinks this is the case needs to get over it. They're letting people in 7 days early right now when they only promised "up to 5." Nothing here even remotely resembles false advertising or fraud. It's just a bunch of people whining over nothing like spoiled kids.

Because that is how they play it safe. Better safe than sorry. And the more safe, the less sorry.
You shouldn't be mad (or whatever you are), you should be happy you got to test the Thanksgiving weekend and that they are giving you EGA.

It does make sense actually, given some people's general sense of entitlement and "ME,ME,ME" attitude could you imagine if BioWare had said ok if you preordered on this week you will get early access on Day X and Time Y and they had unexpected delays meeting those times? The aforementioned people would be up in arms, setting fire to the forums and calling for blood.

BioWare played it safe and smart and is staggering in the early access to avoid issues like this.

Point of clarification: I am not saying the OP or anyone that posts in this thread is one of those people.

Actually, the sales point was "up to five days early". So, let's see, we are currently at 6+ days early and they fulfill their "promise" if they let you in 10 minutes early. Really people, are you incapable of understanding? Get over it. They will email you when they know your start time.

And it is not sence, it is sense.
