Why do people think invites aren't being sent 100% based on first come first served?

Because advertisement by some stores sent out 2 days ago, state that you will get acces on the 13th regardless of when you preorder, meaning you would get in AHEAD of those who preordered months ago from another site.

If it wasn't the case and the above advertisement is lying about early acces and doesn't remark in any way that its "from max 13th" instead of stating "on the 13th", then it is false advertising and in this country this would be ILLEGAL as it is informing the customer of a quality of the product that is different from the same product sold by other retailers and therefore can be judged to have a significant impact on the decision of the customer to purchase the game at this retailer instead of another. This is the kind of stuff that would make you LEGALLY ENTITLED to file a lawsuit against that retailer in this country, and I doubt that Gamestop are so stupid as to put themselves in such a position without first checking if they could actually guarantee access on the 13th, especially considering how tight they have been in following the rules regarding other releases where other retailers took a more flexible approach, namely the cataclysm release.

So, either Gamestop is about to get sued, or Bioware has been lying to us about who gets in when, although which of them is actually the case I don't know ^^

By entrance code I mean he recieved the email to join early access people, it's no bull the first come first serve is not happening and I also was a closed beta tester and have not recieved access today and now the waves of handouts are done for the day. So Closed beta testers did not get early access to clear that up . May the force be with us all....

Full time beta tester here and not in yet, and I ordered so late I was thinking maybe a day early if I am lucky...I just wish they would let me know when, I don't get why that part is such a big secret...but hey I can wait!
