I think that the mods should create some stickies telling the people to have patience, not to create anymore threads complaining about not having early access yet, and state clearly how it was stated from the very start that it was never promised they would have exactly 5 days of early start time and that it was always *up to* 5 days, and that they are getting the time before the official launch for free without any charge, and so on...

They don't "have to" to be honest. Anyone with half a brain knew before hand what they ment. Noone can fault them for the very few, yet very vocal, people throwing tantrums.

You know what the best thing is you can do when a kid throws a tantrum ? You ignore them till they calm down.

There's alot more people "not" complaining then people that are. But as usual people in MMoRPG's expect them to cater to the few and not the many.

If you cave in over this, you'll see your game go to apecrap with in months, because the kiddies will know they can win if they whine enough.

I seen it far to often. Classes getting nerfed over tantrumfests on forums just to mention the most disruptive form.

Do NOT give in to trolls, or it won't stop... "ever" till this game is what "they" want and not what the majority of us do...
Healing since Everquest... and yes, you are all right "It truely always IS the healers fault"

telling players that they can't play when servers are light and you take a break after stopping your waves for 18 hours is just bad community management, stop white knighting for bw. what happens in ega gives the paying customers an idea how bw will handle the community at the retail launch not just the favorite player launch.
I used to be a optimist.. then bioware took a 18 hour break.

Whatever their excuse, there are empty servers and hundreds of thousands of bored fans venting frustration at being unable to play. They've traded the distinction of "the smoothest mmo launch in history" for a whole lot of unhappiness in their community.

It's yet to be seen if it's "the smoothest mmo launch in history" since it hasn't launched yet. Besides there'd be just as much unhappiness from people who are impatient and can't read if they let everyone in and they had to deal with mob competition, lag, queue times and crashes.
