I find it humerus and sad at the same time... seriously, grow up! I'm getting tired of this self entitlement attitude that has become ever prevalent in modern society. Just stop it...

Bioware didn't have to extend the Pre-Order early access by an additional two days, and they're doing everything they can to make sure things go smooth.

I am laughing reading that people actually took off work thinking they would get in today. No matter when you redeemed your code they aren't going by so who ever said wait in the line about who redeemed first.....that's wrong. I know to people that bought the game 4 days ago and redeemed there code and are in. It's obvious they are going buy where you purchased the game first by going through all there sellers of the game. It seems that Origin has 1st dibs. Also when it said up to 5 days early access that didn't mean you would get the 5 days. It meant that you could be allowed in sometime during that time frame.I laugh at all when they can't get in until day 5 at 11:59 pm on the 19th.....but that is early access...and believe me it will happen. So people should not complain about when they are getting in the game.

Because although they will never admit it, they are secretly hoping that Bioware will see their tantrum and say "Oh noes! A quitter, quick push them to the head of the early access queue".

Bioware didn't have to word it, "Up to 5 days Early."
They could have said, "Maybe more than 1 day Early."
Then how many people would have pre-ordered it

Why shouldnt they say they want to cancel. they were sold and paid for a preorder on the preface there would be upto 5 days early access, when now it looks like it should have probably read "for most about/from 5 hours early access for a few upto 5 days."

they are people that have their own minds and sometimes its best left to them to decide what they want to post, you know there are countries that try to stop people posting views, what are they called again?

People are fickle. And Bioware has underestimated to what extent.

You spend YEARS in another MMO, learning it, making friends, becoming comfortable. Then an MMO juggernaut like this comes out and a lot of people are skeptical. Should I play? Im so used to WoW/RIFT/EQ2/AoC/ETC. I have worked so hard getting what I have here.....maybe....maybe I should try it, I guess.

Then a fiasco like this happens. And thats exactly what it is, a fiasco. Theres a reason no other MMO company has ever done this. STRESS TEST is to STRESS TEST THE SERVERS. Not early game access. So yes, Bioware -will- lose customers over this, and in numbers more than any of you are probably imagining.

This isnt one angry kid slamming his keyboard and screaming, thousands of people will return to their current MMOs due to frustration and anger to resume that more at home, comfortable, embracing feel that they know so well.
