Why did the Dev pull their post off? Anyone else notice they removed their OWN POST from this thread.

Bottom line you can't make everyone happy all of the time and we need to have respect and trust that they are doing what they can as fast as they can to get everyone into the game and not damage the equipment if that happens then no one can play.
Be patient, be respectful to the staff, and remember that no matter what we all can play after they are sure that the game is stable enough to let everyone in. That said, I can't wait to get in either

The stress tests were already done, this is not stress tests.

If people who preordered a few months back are not getting invites and people who ordered in December, like me, are getting invites, it's not fair.

Complete nonsense... If I don't have game access when I get home from work tonight I'm canceling my pre-order just on the principle of the matter. I don't like being promised something then the terms of that promise being changed.

I noticed that the post that originally started this thread is gone. Is there a link to another thread being updated, showing waves?

Yeah, posting pre order data is useless

More seriously though, it says something about the current trust in the BioWare brand when people are believing the trolls over SR on the Dec pre orders getting in bit. It doesn't say anything good though.

That are Treating EGA as a stress Beta and that is a terrible LIE to paying they are admitting their servers MAY not be able to handle all the people that have already paid for the game?

How else is it to be interpreted other than the servers can not handle the launch ??????

I am worried I paid 90 bucks for a game with terrible servers and service...

and no one talks about the Grace Period at all I guess it is a dead issue now?

My Pre-order said nothing about "waves" and staggered invites this is BULL CRAP! PERIOD!

Except no one IS a paying customer yet. as even the access time etc with the game isnt valid yet.

and besides there isnt a single person on my current server who wasnt July 21st/22nd/23rd

Don't think EA realise that when advertising withing the UK and EU `early access' as a feature of pre-order and then not delivering it for everyone at the same time, they are breaking the law, particularly when they have taken 5.00 deposit for the pre-order.

Wonder how many folks will have to complain to Trading Standards as a result?

This isn't a launch. This is EARLY GAME ACCESS. I don't see the words LAUNCH any where in there.

Please stop calling it the 'worst launch ever'
