Over 2 million pre-orders, something like 800k box orders. Contrary to your personal belief.

Why does everyone think that the servers are going to crash on the 20th? Don't you realize that the point of staggering is build up the server durability so it can handle mass amounts of people?

I guess these are the same people that expect a full length movie to immediately load and get pissed when they get the buffering screen when trying to skip to the end.

The issue isn't that they can't handle it. The issue is they want the population to be evenly distributed on the servers. What would happen on the 20th if everyone who pre-ordered and got into Early Access were bunched up on 10-20 servers out of 106? Those players whose guild was placed on those 10-20 servers would be screwed. Bioware is not doing this because they can't handle it, they are doing it because they are being responsible about it.

There are a lot of reasons to be unhappy with Bioware (I'm not going to get into my personal issues with them right now), but the EGA program is not one of those valid reasons. They originally planned to start EGA (Exactly the same methods btw) on the 15th. Today is the 14th and everyone up to October 3rd-4th seems to have been invited now. I pre-ordered at the end of September and wasn't expecting to get into the EGA until Friday or Saturday. I got in today (not that I can play until probably 5-6 hours from now when I get home from work). It's a bonus to me and I don't understand why people can't see that they are still getting in earlier than they would have!

99% of statistics on internet forums are made up on the spot.

Also the point about ending early is they could monitor up till about 8-9 pm central and continue to stagger.. but they chose not 2.... oh well, but i can see why people are mad

Why start another thread for ************ whining and gnashing of teeth? Stop the cycle. I am flagging this thread as it is just perpetuating the cycle.

I would really like to get a semblance of normalcy and an air of positivity back on the forums so I can start focusing on the GAME!!!!! I want to play.

Mostly, i agree with you. But about the midnight launch rant... Normal people sleep at night, not go out and buy vidya games.

Honestly? Very damn difficult to grasp. Where did you get your stats from? Three times the number of pre-ordered games.... will be sold to non-pre-orders... which means that there is no "limited quantity" of games put out on the market. Yep. You're right. It'll happen. Servers will go down. And we'll all find out the Mayans were, in fact, full of ****. Cuz the world will end about a year early.
