I'm not pre-ordering, but that's not the issue. I fear that all the people supporting this by pre-ordering and sticking up for them on the forums will encourage them to do more things like this in the future (if there is a future for this game).
I agree with you 100% but I'm still ordering it. If nobody buys it, you can be certain that the game is doomed. If we do buy it, then t here is a chance that the game succeeds and gets better. (even though it is a small chance)
Now, the part where I agree with you would come after that. If the game doesn't get better, and they never make the changes we ask for, a second expansion I wouldn't buy. They have 1 chance to make it right. If in 1 year, the game is the same and I still can't transfer my characters, I'll be long gone.
I just don't want that to happen and it is worth a $10 investment.
If my $10 simply encourages them to be a bad company that doesn't like to communicate and doesn't want this game to thrive, then I've lost $10 and they fooled me.
As the saying goes though, fool me once....shame on you.... fool me twice..... shame on me.
I won't be fooled twice. By then, I won't care what the fate of the game is.

If you're really that hesitant, I'm sure you can get a refund. If EA doesn't want to give it to you, then call up your bank.

Thanks
They got your money; you're old money now. They won't care about delivering any incentives they advertised to get your money; incentives like regularly updated CE vendors.

I find your argument reasonable. I just don't have as much faith in Bioware as you, but yeah. I did the same thing with Cataclysm. I was like "Okay, Blizzard, you had some missteps in WOTLK, but I still enjoyed the heck out of it. The problem is, I don't know if I'll still be enjoying it a few years down the road with the way the game's going. So if you impress the heck out of me with Cataclysm, I'll stay".

Needless to say, I wasn't impressed :P

I understand exactly where you are coming from. Unfortunately, with Hickman now in charge of this game after Warhammer Online . . . well . . . you could blindly place a bet on the table of your choice at a casino and have a better chance of getting a return on the risk.

Promoting a CSR Manager to game lead failed misreably once already. Moving him to then another game is just the definition of insanity that Ben Franklin once spoke of.

EA has already been contacted and said "no refunds." What are the odds they're bank will cancel the transaction? It depends on the bank right?

That said, I'm cautiously optimistic and really hope that RotHC will deliver despite not having class stories. Hell, it better do cause otherwise lots of people are going to be very unhappy, myself included.
Knowing this community (in the forums), people will be unhappy no matter what they deliver, so the point is moot.
