Its a me me me world because the old people are lazy. LAZY LAZY LAZY and want the young people to do all the work? I plan on never retiring, its called working to live. Not to be lazy like Bioware. Rift shows hard work can make a headstart that actually works (and give out something besides one color of special items). That is the difference.

They should have told people to BUY the game on 7/21 to play ASAP. That is why people preorder: TO PLAY THE VERY SECOND THAT THE SERVERS GO ONLINE ITS WHY WE WAIT AT MIDNIGHT RELEASES. What are you all confused about? The game started today, not the 20th. 13th was the GAME RELEASE, the day I can make my toon and NEVER get it erased. That is the START of ANY game. I like to start playing board games with the family, not come in when there almost done?

If I could go back in time and take the lazy persons job i would. L2work more then 8 hour days like real humans. Need real work ethics, not the one where the upper echelon thinks that if someone is complaining, there entitled like old people and huge hunks of money they sit on until they die.

You spend YEARS in another MMO, learning it, making friends, becoming comfortable. Then an MMO juggernaut like this comes out and a lot of people are skeptical. Should I play? Im so used to WoW/RIFT/EQ2/AoC/ETC. I have worked so hard getting what I have here.....maybe....maybe I should try it, I guess.

Then a fiasco like this happens. And thats exactly what it is, a fiasco. Theres a reason no other MMO company has ever done this. STRESS TEST is to STRESS TEST THE SERVERS. Not early game access. So yes, Bioware -will- lose customers over this, and in numbers more than any of you are probably imagining.

This isnt one angry kid slamming his keyboard and screaming, thousands of people will return to their current MMOs due to frustration and anger to resume that more at home, comfortable, embracing feel that they know so well.

People that think like that should be dissalowed to vote, or reproduce, or do anything that requires any form of sanity.

It's not even nearly a fiasco, especially comparing it to the WoW launches. You remember those? Servers down for days. When you bought SWTOR, the launch date was the 20th, and if you pre-ordered early minus a few days of early launch. If the bulk of the early orders isn't in by the end of the 15th, i could understand all the complaints.

Thing is, up to a few days ago, noone even expected to get in anywhere before the 15th, now they added 2 extra days of early launch, and people act like it's the end of the world. Noone even planned this, people like that are what is wrong with the modern 1st world countries.

I have to agree with this, adults are the most petulant out of all the age groups.

Another thing the people that have so called cancelled there pre-ordered are surprisingly making a ton of threads like really, what makes anyone so damn important anywayz?

So far lets see what we have all gave to bioware/EA we gave them 5 dollars, so really what makes anyone deserve more early access we have two extra days and we'll all probably be in by day 5, most people that complain are usually the people who are terrible at games period.

And that makes it even sadder.


People complain because they believe that they are "entitled" to it. But honestly, did you purchase the game because you wanted to play the game or to play pre-game?

I know my answer. And it's ice cream.

I laugh when people compare it to Rift, they added like 500000 servers on the fly, and then within a month the population was too spread and servers went ghost. Yea, that was a great idea!

Bioware didn't have to extend the Pre-Order early access by an additional two days, and they're doing everything they can to make sure things go smooth.

Why are there so many defending a poor launch? Why is the sun not blue? Why are people who complain about elitist attitudes on dmg meters, often elitist themselves when it comes to pre-order dates? So many questions!

I'd put money on most of the whiners being over 20.

I figure most of them are melodramatic hipsters between 20 and 25.

It seems that Origin has 1st dibs. Also when it said up to 5 days early access that didn't mean you would get the 5 days. It meant that you could be allowed in sometime during that time frame.I laugh at all when they can't get in until day 5 at 11:59 pm on the 19th.....but that is early access...and believe me it will happen. So people should not complain about when they are getting in the game.

****, they have OFICIALLY confirmed posts like these are trolls.




Screen shots or it didn't happen! You want to argue, have some PROOF! Tell them to stream everything on twitch. They can show when they pre ordered and them logging in game already


Yea thats what I thought, shuttup already. Go back under your bridge

all valid points, but does not change the fact that its true. There are people like that, in great numbers, and they are/were paying customers. People like that are also the reason MMOs these days are less based on friendship and groups and more based on bashing your face skillessly into a keyboard repeatedly.

However, more of those types of people play than not. And it still remains that Bioware -will- lose money over it, and sustained money. Each canceled pre-order and person that returns to a previous game is not only 60-150 dollars gone, its 14 a month for however long they would have played. When added up in the thousands, thats a lot of money.
