Secondly, you didn't notice the fact I point out early access is one the greatest tests an MMO can have before launch. You got so hung up on other things like most children do. They are pissing on a huge opportunity here for testing. Learn to read the entire comment.
But...you're...wrong...

Sigh.

You pre-ordered to make sure the game didn't sell out on launch day before you could get your copy. If you pre-ordered SPECIFICALLY for Early Access, then you should have read the part where it said "Up to five days" and comprehended it for what it meant. Up to. Not guarunteed five days. Up to. You knowingly paid for the CHANCE to play up to five days early.

If you didn't understand this, you should brush up on reading comprehension.

As to your continual hammering at how they're pissing on an opportunity to test their servers...they already tested their servers at maximum load. They don't need those metrics anymore.

What they -do- need is to see how their servers respond to continual authentication requests as new users download and sign in to their game. They need to get an idea of how each blade performs under X amount of users using the release client so they can plan for their launch date rollout. They need to respond to issues as they arise on this microcosmic level as opposed to "OH CRAP ITS LAUNCH DAY AND THE INTERWEBS CAUGHT FIRE".

That is PRECISELY why they are staggering this.

The moral of this story: shut up.

I see a correlation among whiners and their bad grammar. Stay in school.

My guess is 7 weeks from next Thursday at the rate they are going. They have to be careful that they do not overload their servers that they may never let any of us in just to make sure the game is stable.

I don't have a problem with staggered early access, but I'm curious how they plan to handle the natural increase in player population that takes place as the day goes on. I dimly recall from Steam stats that "prime time" for gaming is rather like prime time for US TV watching -- East coast evening time. I know I have friends who've received their emails already but can't play because they're at work. What if Bioware allows in 6 waves before prime time, and then prime time hits and player population soars. Will Bioware wish they'd only let in 3 waves?

vgchartz only shows physical preorders made in the US, it does not show digital preorders in the US, or any type of preorder from outside the US.

there may or may not be 3 million preorders, but there is definately more than the 900k vgchartz shows.
I want playable Zeltron's too!
You can disagree with me if you want, people who are wrong frequently do.

I said they did crash on ocasion, but the servers I played on personally never really had issues. A failed MMO does not mean launch didn't go smooth either :P. WAR's issues were with late game and PvE content, not how it was launched.
