I am for one happy that I still dont have early access. I have enough time to finish my uni work and then relax. If I get it by the end of the week it would be ideal.
I dont understand those people that are panicking about their pre-launch access, after all it was just a bonus offered. and anyway they never actually said that everyone will get early access.

scroll down the page. It says that at the top, but if you entered your code it will tell you at the bottom of the same page.

If I'm on the next wave, I hope it comes after my work today!

LOL It totally does.

Makes me very disheartened - one of the reasons I don't play WoW seriously anymore is because of the completely rubbish customer service.

So far the customer service over here hasn't really been all that great, either. The US phone line is saying it's out of service when I try and call it (I'm having a non-prerelease related account issue). That doesn't really inspire confidence.

I'm not an angry person.. I understand Bio / EA's reasoning behind the "waves"... They want their little gold star on the rare "MMO's with a clean, smooth launch" posterboard, especially one of this magnitude.

I just can't see how they couldn't have planned to be doing more for their pre-order customer base at a faster pace.

In having open beta / stress testing, they have been aware of what their servers can handle. Couple that with knowing how many preorder's they had and assuming 90% of them would be online today wanting to play (always overshoot!) - and I'm left wondering how they couldn't project they would need more servers to be opened than clearly what they've done today, with supposedly only one more wave left for today...

Yes, staggering entry is great for stability - not so good for friends wanting to log in and play together from the start... Great for boasting to the game development community about their smooth launch - not so great for pre-ordering customers from july & august who assumed they would be on board and playing by now, who may have possibly taken time off work, or at least scheduled themselves accordinly...

And what IS the deal with only one more wave? Are you all just going to go home early, and call it a day while the swarms of game-thirsty players chomp at the bit pawing at the login gates hopelessly? It's not like you don't have additional servers already in place to open and allow additional room & access, right?.. I mean, you're not having them FED-EX'd to you tonight for tomorrow's waves? (lol)...

And again, I come back to the knowledge you've had for months about the number of preorders patiently waiting these past several months.

Should you not have your entire team working around the clock to open servers, and have waves more often than once an hour, and more than just 4 in total today?

... Before all of the happily contented popcorn eaters sling their "crybaby's" at me, let me first freely admit to it before you do so. Yes, I'm a crybaby. I wanted to be playing today, and (apparently) mistakenly assumed Bioware / EA would be handling things so that a JULY 26 code-entery customer could be doing so.. (silly me!)..

And I also freely admit that had I been accepted already, I wouldn't be here moaning, and instead smiling, clicking my keys and mouse, enjoying the flashing lights, without a care for those I left behind on the forums... But well... here I find myself, with nothing better to do while waiting for wave 4 in an uneasy desperation, flabberghasted at how this early access wasn't handled in a speedier, efficient, and wider-ranging manner given everything they've known about up to this point.

/crymode off... time to make a sammich.. fingers crossed, but hope levels @ under 10%.
