Am I just reading this wrong, or are they seriously intending to only do 4 waves today?
Yeah i read that also that there is only one more wave. Thats bull *@#&. I thought the whole point of staggered start was to keep letting waves of people in so they could play and get out of the starter zones.

3 waves over 4 hours with one more to go? Really?

Could you imagine 5000 people all in the starting zones at once. ouch.
They instanced the starting zones so you won't run into thousands of people.

The way they're "pre-releasing" is just plain stupid.

"We're monitoring the server load" is just too weak.

You've had plenty of test phases and somehow among those stress tests on the hardware.

If you're "giving" the people who ordered in july/august access the first day... god forbid those who bought the EARLY ACCESS in december.. at this rate it will be AFTER the actual release... (Not serious, but still...).

You charged an extra fee for early access, yet no access.

Where do we reclaim the "early access" fees?

No point in ordering it if you're pushing out invites from half a year ago under the pretenses of server load hindering the invites.

I've already talked people who ordered way early not get in and more than a few who ordered late and have gotten in.

I totally understand the staggered invites, but it still feels like I'm being cheated out of something I paid a LOT of money for.

Not a good way to start.


No stated the Collectors edition got in earlier. Actualy they stated that i doesnt matter which version you got,it all depends on the code redemption.

For all other people who are wondering to get in(especialy the ones who ordered later then July:
At the very beginning of pre-orders, which started on July 21st, we had a massive influx of pre-orders. A huge spike. After that, things settled down. As a result, today especially, you're going to see a fairly narrow band of dates from those admitted to Early Game Access. From tomorrow, it'll spread out to a wider date range
