Don't get me wrong. I agree about the rolling early access. I have no problem with that... it's a good way to prevent a million people in the newbie zones at once and causing the server to catch fire and explode.

It's just the way they're handling it. Tell me when I can play. That's all I want to know. But they won't.

No, they're not telling you when the "waves" are going out. You just have to wait and hope you're getting access.

They could alleviate a lot of frustration and QQ if they just said "Look at the chart. Match it with the date range you submitted your pre-order code. That's when you'll get early access." Period. Done.
that is a great idea, then people will know and can plan their days off to play.

I feel like I'm at that chinese restaurant in Seinfeld waiting for my table

"CARTWRIGHT! CARTWRIGHT!"

sigh.
Ooh a new private message! False alarm. Just another infraction. Clicking is bad and you should feel bad.

Image the kind of crap they'd get if they gave you a time, but then encountered some kind of complications with servers of what not and you didn't get in on the earlier said time? I'm guessing that would result in some peeps heads blowing up....

Be patient and appriciate the possibility to get pre access at all!
Well, the whole reason I preordered it was for early access. I didn't order it until October, and the website I ordered it from didn't mention anything about waves. It just said early access, so I assumed they were just letting everyone who ordered in a few days early. It's somewhat annoying that people who had the extra money laying around when the preorder was first available get an advantage over people who had to hold off until they could afford it, but all I really want to know is why is it like this? I don't understand how this helps them at all, since on the 20th the servers are going to be overloaded anyways.

Well, everyone proved that this won't be a different forum crowd than World of Warcraft. Hooray. Early access is a priviledge, not a duty. Prepay is part of total pay, not a part of playing early if they don't want to *********** let you. Grow up

The words "Early Game Access may be up to 7 days." do not translate into a promise of anything.
