Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa... whoa..
Let me get this stright. Retail players, who pre-ordered mind you, yet got the game today. (I've got two sets of games, from different sources, because I tried pre-ordering from two places to get headstart codes, which I never got)
But one was shipped to me, and one was a in store pick up. But as I sit here, waiting for the game to install.. I won't get to play it today? It's not my freaking fault that two places couldn't provide me head start codes, and both decided to let me have the game today.
It's not really Mythic's fault either....
Depending on when you pre-ordered, you had plenty of time to cancel and either get it from D2D, Amazon, or someplace else, which didn't run out of codes.
Did you not know what codes you were supposed to get? Why didn't ya do something about it?! You're a consumer, you have a choice. You don't have to bend over and take it!!
So regardless, I won't play today? Is that what I'm hearing? I took off work for this sh*t?
Well....since the game hasn't launched yet....that would be a yes.
It sucks - but again - I pre-ordered 2 CE's and 6 SE's from Amazon, and 3 SE's from D2D and had zero problem. My last pre-order was amazon (2 copies of SE) on September 4th, and yes it took a call to get service, but they came through!! They will continue to have my support and busisess.
Tell me Magil - are you planning on continuing purchasing from Best Buy?
This launch is full of fail. Bad way to start, if you ask me.
I have to agree - but not because of your issue.
There has YET
to be ANY
MMO pre-order that comes through, because studios simply do not have the pipeline to deliver. Until such things are direct from studio download ONLY - and they make marketing stay the hell away, we as players will continue to suffer such outrageous service (and put up with it....because apparently, we're retarded).
