So what's the secret?

I don't have any problems with the trickling method they're using to allow players into the game. Not a big deal. But why so hush hush as to their methodology? If a dev would be so kind as to at least give us some information to go on.

For example, you don't want to tell us certain specifics for one reason or another. But can you at least tell us where you're at as far as dates go?

I.E. We've allowed everyone in from date A through date B. The next wave will "roughly" have the following dates: etc.

Is that so terribly difficult? Which brings me to my question...what's the big secret? You have the information in front of you, you have a plan. Give us a vague estimate, at the very least.

It seems the more they tell us, the more people will find something to complain about.

The secret is that victoria is really a man...

Also, if they don't make promises they can't break promises. not that i agree with that logic, but that is probably their mentality.

You'll be in between now and the 19th, just as you were told.

Be patient. Is that so terribly difficult? Apparently.

A good point, hopefully bioware will get around to it to shut up all the trolls on the forums. I really would like to know when i'll be getting in.

Yeahhhh, I didn't really think about that. I guess that makes sense. It'll probably piss off more people than they got aggravated now if they started telling people specifics. Good point.

Because once they say "Next wave is approx Jul 27-Aug 10" SOMEONE who pre-ordered and registered on Aug 10 will get left out because they were pre-order 5001 and what they REALLY meant was pre-orders 2501-5000. So they'll get all booty hurt and accuse BW of discrimination and hatred and lies etc. This way they have no marketing/PR to UNDO. Yes they may have an unruly crowd but no broken promises. Its easier to deal with that way, legally.

Don't be a smart*****, obviously I wasn't raging. Take your trolling elsewhere, thanks. Nice attempt though, but it only works on the kids.

Absolutely agree, didn't really think about it. It was a shot in the dark, nonetheless. I /would/ be nice to know when to expect to get the email. I pre-ordered the first week but not the first day. Naturally, being a huge star wars fan, I'm chomping at the bit for my invite.
