For anyone calling CS: yes, we have a lot of calls right now. If you're calling about 'when do you get access' - hang up. They won't help.

You have to be really silly to start calling CS for EGA. My, my, my.....

We are "only" talking about maybe a million. That other game has 10x as much.
That 'other' game had one of the crappiest launches ever, not taking into consideration Age of Conan. They didnt have near as much players at the start as this mmo has, and yet they had massive problems, so your comparison is a very bad one indeed.

please just top complaining, i feel like an adult watching a bunch of kids cry over a new toy, honestly, some people will not get in till next week, so those of us who get in earlier should just be happy they are getting in today or tomorrow and not just the day before the game comes out or even not havine early access.

I'm looking forward to early access! I have a feeling I won't get in today but whatever, it's ok. I'll just go back and play Skyrim or WoW for a little while longer until i get my invite.

You miss the point where Bioware has far more. If 59,000 physical pre-orders = 600,000 people. What do you think 939,000 physical pre-orders equal?

There's still a limit on total server capacity per world, and there's no guarantee that they can direct all of a world's servers to just "starter planets". By letting people in via "waves", they can monitor loading, have time to bring new worlds online as needed, etc.

The bottom line is that if they didn't throttle the inflow of customers, they could wind up with a major mess on their hands. If anyone thinks people are QQing now, just imagine what would happen if they had to shut down the game for "emergency maintenance" on the first day.

They'll deserve a lot of praise if they can pull off a smooth launch, and if people are having fun... a month from now they simply won't care if they got in on December 13th or on December 15th.
