Yes they do. Want proof? Rift had 59,000 physical pre-orders at launch according to VGchartz. According to Rift they had around 600,000-700,000 players during early access.

Mine looks the same, and I redeemed my pre-order code. That page you linked says at the top that the steps on that page are NOT necessary for Early Game Access. You only need to register a "Product Registration Code" by December 20, the official release date.

They will say because "we have no firm data on how many are potentially going to get in the first day however as we have previously stated a "narrow band" of dates will be granted EGA on day one." so kind of their way of getting off the hook is they do not want to further exasperate the situation by releasing information that could lead to unfounded expectations on customers part. I say I expected what you advertised. I would of had to go research to find out it was staggered...I merely pre-ordered in Sept. and there was nothing during pre-order process that said staggered access...so get it right you are making people really angry and unhappy and the game has not even been launched.

Then we have staggered launch, where people complain when they haven't been let in - either way, they can't win.

Oh well, I'll grab my popcorn and continue to enjoy all the nerd rage. Good luck to us all
Yeah right, because on the 20th they will let normal customers in with waves so they can smooth that out too...oh wait no they can't do that...

I would have preferred everyone in at the same time + crashes during early access (acceptable) rather than "smooth" early access (with a lot of pissed off people) + everyone in on the 20th -> server crashes on release day (unacceptable and a lot more pissed off people).

To top it off if they can handle server load on the 20th they can now aswell, so there is really no point in these "waves"
