Not to mention a lot of people still saying they submitted in july that still aren't playing. Blah BIO/EA this is bull crap.

As for the people that are going to try and flame me for this post. Let me start with don't waste your time telling me about how they let us in 2 days early. Really that's not the case. In the begining it was up to 7days. Then it was cut down to 5 and then last minute it was back up to 7. Someone running for Congress here or something?

Then the hole staggered release. I think it was more so like some insider trading. All the people from Bio/EA probably logged in yesterday to make thier accounts. And thier friends probably were told to preorder and stuff in advance so they could all be in on day 1 - wave 1.

All the mean while BIO has sounded like a double talking southern politician in how they have worded things and posted things to make it so I have to feel like I need a lawyer to decode thier lines of crap.

In the end I'm not happy with the game. I waited for buy the CE and in doing so I now have thousands of people that get a head start on me. A day is a day.

I WILL NOT BUY ANOTHER GAME MADE BY BIOWARE OR EA. No madden! No NBA Live! No NHL! No Mass Effects! You get the point! I will play this game but there will always be a bad taste left in my mouth. As soon as World of Darkness somes out I might be gone. Next game I buy... Boarderlands 2!!!

Hope your stupid staggered WAVE release was worth it because you lost all the rest of my business in the future. P.S. If I'm not playing tomarrow I'll probably just not buy my CE copy and let some other tool pick it up. Starting to feel like I'm playing WoW/SWG all ready!!!!!
Not sure where you got your undeserved sense of entitlement but I'm glad someone destroyed it

Honestly OP...did it ever occur to you that when the game went on sale for pre order in July that they probably made massive sales in the first week?

It could be a lot of people already just those few days from July. You can't assume the percentage just by the number of days covered so far.
Goodbye all, it's been fun. Time for me to move on (it's ok to cheer ).

Unhappy customers more then anything brings the slow death of a game. Sony Online has a proven record in this department and is known throughout the MMO community as such. Some people swore off SoE games and they stuck with it. Sadly, BW/EA may be making this same mistake with soo many people feeling left out. People being told one thing and then changing it later on (ie grace period). Giving condesending twitter responses to unhappy customers.

Not a great start I fear for a great game. I too feel that bitter taste in my mouth about this game.
