Ever heard of IT support? It doesn't just apply to MMOs either. Some of us get exactly what they are doing.

Literacy, however, apparently *does* apply to a limited few these days. You're not missing out on anything that they promised and they're not doing anything that was not explicitly made clear in the advertizing months ago.

You do realize BioWare hasn't kidnapped us, right? Therefore the Stockholm Syndrome does not apply.

Edit: Apparently, I am unable to read, rofl.

Not defending Bioware really.

I just think people are blowing a -game- well out of proportion, like its a worse crime than letting millions of African children starve to death.

Get angry about something real, and not a luxury.

Or maybe...just maybe...we agree with what they are doing?

They've said since the start that the earlier you registered your code, the earlier you got in. It's that simple. They didn't hide it, lie, or change it, /except to give you two extra days/.

People who can't read or understand...well, pardon me if I'm not concerned with them.

Lets talk about advertizing. There is still an add that says "order now and get up to 5 days early access". Why have that add up beyond October when it was painfully obvious that pre-ordering at that point there would be 0 chance of 5 days?

In the world of nerd rage being made to wait equates to kidnapping.

Hell I'm surprised the whiners haven't compared BW to Nazi Germany already. It is the internet after all and you're only ever 3 posts away before a Nazi/Hitler comparison is made.
