I can't believe how many people are QQing about the early access. You were promised nothing. Nobody said anything about CE getting preference. Your brother/sister/neighbor/best friend did NOT pre-order in December and get access today. They moved the start from the 15th to the 13th and still people compain they didn't get in on the first day. They're done with the waves because people are still working or at school, they won't know what their servers are going to do until tonight. I hope this forum is not the general population for this game or I will be seriously disappointed.

Early access is a lie, there is only passion.
The cake is a lie!

Well, I figured something like this would happen. I expected it not to be a just and fair "First come, first serve" system. They made it random I guess. I hope your hubby was a gentleman and offered to wait for you, or better still, offered to let you play.

LOL it's not even release day and people are forsaking Bioware as a bunch of noob developers.

So you know. Although it's Bioware, the staff are highly trained highly experienced MMO developers who have developed for other MMO's including WoW. The same guys who made Mass Effect is not the same guys who made this game. Not in it's entirty.

Im sure Bioware knows what they are doing. Yeah I did'nt get in, im upset but life goes on. Go outside play in the snow (or not) or whatever. Just get off the damn computer for a day. It's not the end of the world.

You all are acting like a bunch of spoiled children who were never taught any patience. Just be patient, get in, have fun. You can complain later.

Thats just my honest opinion about this.

And this whole deal about being ripped off, you know you can still cancel your order as of today right? So why are you on here? Exactly.

You know after reading a lot of these threads I have to say I am terribly disappointed with the response people are giving this early access. Early access WASN'T even supposed to start until the 15th and now people are complaining that they can't get in. No, actually, complaining is a very polite word, you folks are honestly raging about this.

Truth be told I am completely happy knowing I will be getting to play sometime before the 15th or at least I hope this is how it works. My biggest concern? My name being taken, but I don't foresee this being a problem as I can simply just choose another server since I am not dedicated to one.

Calm down, stop nerd raging, and be happy Bioware has opened up the servers prior to when they originally said they were.

I just want to put it down for the record that the way this early access program has been implemented is truly one of the most poorly conceived ideas that I've ever personally encountered in over 25 years of playing video games. I've personally participated in launches of 6 other MMO games, and there is nothing in those experiences that compares to how ridiculous this process is.

When you are dealing with a pre-launch even that is only for pre-order customers, after an extensive and massive beta testing period that was a huge success according to nearly all sources involved - it begs the huge question as to what is the limiting factor in the way you have chosen to roll out this game. I personally participated in the beta in a very limited way (not by choice, mind you, I just wasn't lucky enough to get a key) and was only online during the big Thanksgiving weekend test. That test was wonderful - there were a huge number of servers, and a huge population of testers. The game performance was amazing.

So, EA/BW - what exactly are you afraid of?

The ONLY way this should have been done is to have given ALL pre-orders (perhaps separated only by level of game purchased - i.e. CE customers get 7 days, SE get 5, e.g.) access at exactly the same time. Of course it will overload the servers and queues would ensue and all that - but that's what we all expect. Making your customers wait unknowingly with no idea how long it will be or when to expect an email is just adding insult to injury. A poor alternative would have been to send out emails with a set time and day that your access would be available.

I read in the top post how you are monitoring the server performance and are rolling waves based on server performance. Are you seriously saying you have to wonder at this point if your servers can perform up to the task - when you probably still have 90% of the launch day players yet to even be able to play? That is not at all a good message to be sending at the beginning of an MMO franchise.

At any rate, I love this game. I love BW. But I truly despise and am sickened by the way you chose to put your customers through so much stress for absolutely no good or justifiable reason.

I truly hope you improve, because this is a very very poor way to start out.

Just to correct you, its not bonus. We had to pay to get early game access

I am not crying about it. It's great that they were able to start even earlier. My point was the way the invites are being sent out. I am just confused as to why we didn't get the invite at the same time.

We only got 5 waves today so the devs would have plenty of time to high five each other over what an awesome jobby they did... >.>
Preorder code went in the 28th, pretty disappointed they didn't even get through July today...
