Game stop pre-ordersFollow

I pre-ordered my Collectors edition from Game stop and I got codes to join open beta (After I chased them down and demanded them.) and I heard head start began today (sunday 14th) so I called two seperate game stop shops and each person told me this was coming out on the 24th of this month. I then went to the store to talk face to face with them (I am not a fan of talking on the phone to strangers.) and the guy behind the counter spent a few seconds clicking at his computer and said he doesn't see anything warhammer related coming out this week. I explained how the MMO was being released on the 16th and the collectors edition pre-order people were supposed to get a headstart starting today, he just look at me with a confused expression and said he didnt know anything about it but they would probably email me when it comes in. I then asked how they were going to do that if they never asked for my email. He just shrugged.

Anyways, is anyone else having better results with gamestop? Same? Am I missing something?

I had a really good experience, but then I have a good gamer geek working for the one I go to.
The key is to find that one enthusiatic know it all and make them your friend. They will hook you up.
For your Game Stop, I would suggest printing out the information on the Warhammer Online site and taking it and SHOWING them...or hope for that one enthusiatic gamer geek to show up and help you.

*sigh*

If it helps, my gamestop are actually getting them in on Tuesday. Much like how they did with Age of Conan. They released it the same day the head start began. Not like you can play without the head start code but atleast you could get it installed and ready.

I have to say my experience was somewhat simular. I pre-ordered the collectors edition from my local gamestop the day after it was announced as I figured it was the only way to really guarentee a spot in beta. I gladly paid my $80 and waited all summer. Once the open beta was announced and how it worked I called the Gamestop I pre-ordered from to get the details on how they were handling it. They said at the time they weren't sure but usually they received the information shortly before.

So I waited, paid attention to the news on the official site, never hearing anything from Gamestop. I happened to call again, asking about how the codes were being handled and I was given a run around. I called on Friday night and was told to call Sat morning. Called sat morning and was told to call Sat afternoon and speak with the manager.

I called later on that day, asked for the person I was told to ask for and he told me they had no beta codes that they were all given out. I'm sitting here thinking I was probably the first person to pre-order this game from this place and I should have been the first person they called with my CE beta keys. So after politely chewing this guy a new one he came up with a beta key at another store and they were going to give me one even though both were accounted for, meaning by me taking the box I was shafting someone else. Not fair to me, not fair to the person who got shafted.

Luckily I was able to get a beta key and enjoy open beta. It WAS NOT however a CE key which I should have received. And in the process ******** someone else out of their key. NOT A GOOD JOB GAME STOP. I never went to Game Stop for anything other than pre-orders. I am no longer going to go there ever, any game stop, any where, for any reason. These stores are nothing but pawn shops that only do whats best to get money in thier pocket, not in the interest of their customers. I hope the manager's buddy is enjoying my key that I should have received and never did.

I am still waiting for them to sell this game. Yesterday they said the 16th was the ship date and the 17th was the day they would begin selling the game. They had better have my collectors edition there when I get there because they are notorious for giving stuff out to the first person who asks for it rather than actually holding it for the person who pre-ordered.
