Should we all late preorders cancel?

We probally got the extra two days access to allow every to get some early access. I had some gamestop pre-order code issues personally and ended up canceling and then buying from amazon.

Would be kinda lame to not get any ealry access since had i not canceled from gamestop I could just pick the game up on the 20th and not have had to pay shippping. /shrug

I would not cancel now, you may still get access. I bet most of the pruchases were made the first couple days and most of those people will be in by tommorrow night. The rest of the five days will be easier.

Would not one day of advanced access be a kick in a teeth for players especially if they take the servers down early for launch giving players less that 24hrs advanced access? I am kind of hoping they get a move on with the speed they allow players to access the servers while any advanced access will of course furfill the advert its not going to make the customer base happy and is probably not a going to be a great start for customer relations having a large section of customers p*ssed of at the start of the games life.
Still lets see what happens perhaps a more honest or realistic advert would have been better for people something like "You could get 5 days early access but you will be lucky to get 1" while not as appealing it would let the comsumer know the real score.

If you only pre-ordered to get a few days extra playtime before other people, then sure go ahead and cancel.

Personally i preordered to ensure i'll actually have a copy when the game launches on the 20th without having to venture out into the hell that is last minute christmas shopping. So any extra time is just the bonus its meant to be.

Yes, cancel immediately...Do not wait. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200

in my opinion this staggering system for early access, defeats the purpose of doing a preorder now.

should i just cancel my preorder and wait till the 20th ?
Did you stop to consider that the bulk of preorders are probably from those first few days? As such, those in August and beyond will probably see large number of days grouped together.

Now, as for actually getting onto your server...

The last week of full beta the servers were down for a few days and I got nervous so that is when I preordered and realistically I was not expecting to get in today or even much more the a few minutes early...

I just wanted the game ordered and ready to go so....then I check email one day and it says to uninstall the beta client so I did that thinking great any day now they will let us start to download the launch client.

The day finally arrives where I get to download the new client and as soon as I start the launcher it asks me "What is your favorite activity?" I quickly reference the sheet I wrote it all down on and type in my answer and it says "incorrect" and asks me again and pretty soon my account is locked!

So I go and reset my password like it says to when that happens and still the answer I have is somehow different to the answer they have...

Then this morning I say to myself, I need to edit my answers to numbers so there can be no mistake what so ever, and finally I got in and was able to edit all of my answers to be long numbers for answers and since then I have not answered one wrong, though every single time I log in they ask one of the questions....sheesh!

Yes please cancel as quickly as possible as God forbid you MIGHT need to wait until release day to play the game you purchased. Early access, especially on the first day, was not guaranteed to anyone who preordered that I saw anywhere.

When you cancel please ensure you close your forum account as well. That should help make this place a bit more enjoyable for the rest of us.

I seriously can't believe all the whining going on over people not getting into EGA right away.

We're 5 hours into a 7 day period of head start possibilities (2 days more than initially advertised too).

Grow up and be patient.
