Are you saying that the day they announced TOR was available for preorder that we would get early access based on registration date? If you're telling me that's what they said, then I've got no problem saying, 'oops, my bad ...' but I don't recall that being the case

Game developers dont require a high level of education, Hell most of the lead devs for the top mmo's on the market had degree's in unrelated fields such as marine bio. The ones who have the "high level" of education are the ones who do infact have to pull graveyards such as the graphic artists/Interface design/programming and Administration

If you do go for a game related education most you will get is a Long shift code monkey work (that you will get fired from at the end of the project deadline)

Im sorry I cant find a quote but ever since the first day of preorder I had that idea too, I was even upset because im a redzoner and had to find another way to buy the game in 11/18...


I believe it was in the preorder email, they told us to get our keys asap cause that would determine the date we can start the early access.

Yup, they said you could get UP TO 5 days. 5 Days... that starts on the 15th. So, even if we just decide to ignore the UP TO part, you still weren't expecting to get in until the 15th. What's the problem?

Yes, they did in fact say in the early documentation everything would be based on the order date. I wish I still had the first email they sent to post in the forums today. I never thought I would need it.

Yep, you're right ... I dug up the e-mail they sent 21 July and this is what they said:

Quote:
The order in which you purchase and redeem your Pre-Order Code is the order in which you will gain early access to the game, prior to official launch day.

Amazes me this is such a big issue. They never said you will get 7 days that was a bonus for people who pre ordered early. If i get 5 days then great. But not bothered if i have to wait a bit longer.

Cause reading stuff onhere is so funny with ppl stressig out atm.

It was always a big deal. The idea was horrible when it was first announced but now it is reality.

The complete lack of communication certainly doesn't help things.
