Sure, you probably got your pre-order entered way back when, but you're not the only one. They can't just open up to the servers to 500,000 people at once. That's the whole point of all of this.

Just relax. Find something else to do and wait patiently. Your time is coming. You've waited this long, what's another couple of hours, day or a few days?

I'm sorry. But when I pre-ordered Jjuly 21 and others with later dates are in before me...that's not entitlement, that's a complete FAIL against BW's word.

And I preordered Monday July 25th 2011 so all we can do I guess is wait and see and if not today maybe tomorrow through I hope it won't come to that.

Except that many of us are trying to get names from past MMOs and paid early to get in early. For those, it's going to be a bad day. I don't care if it is 7 days access, 5 days access, or be there on release date. I just want my dang names. Hell, I'd have paid them extra just to let me pre-register my characters, to heck with my guild, just gimme my names.

Chill out guys and holster the blame thrower. BW is likely monitoring server load and sending invites periodically. This way if there's a catastrophic failure then only those already invited are affected.

I took the afternoon off work hoping to get an invite, but if I don't get in at least I get time to fix the washing machine :P

So not all bad

You would have the same posts about, "But you said I was going to get in at this time".
+1 for cool use of intellect and logic!

To those complaining:

Suck it up!

This is bonus time to help have a smooth launch on the 20th. Seriously is the nerd rage really needed? You will get in when you get in.

I really feel sorry for the Dev's and the network people. They are gonna be putting in 16-20 hour days and it is gonna be like that for the next two weeks. Glad you guys show so much respect for those trying to get you into the game early and smoothly!!!

Second wave of emails were sent out, not starting a flame war here but how do you know others who pre-ordered later got in before you? Maybe your pre-order activation took a little while to go through. Im sure you will get in sometime today. Just think of all the little gamers who weren't able to pre-order until a few days after it was released.

Bullocks and I hope you know it. I've seen Rift do a far better launch with a very HIGH traffic volume.
The fact that man is able to achieve is because we learn from examples. In the end I hope Bioware learned and this launch works out well for them. It's not the first MMO to fail parlty because of crappy launch/ unstable servers.
