     how Bioware screwed us CE owners over, 

     How is that?

     

    Most CE people (I maintain wisely) did not order their CE from Gamestop or another physical store due to that and other companies' tendency to screw crap up royally. The majority of us ordered off of Amazon.com, which offered release-day delivery for normal copies of the game, but not the CE. We thought that would be fine and that there would be a grace period to cover that void but, sadly, EA has decided to instead throw us the virtual equivalent of the middle finger.

     

    There's going to be a good stretch in there where most of the people who dropped the biggest bucks on this game vanish off the servers for a span of 1-10 days. The Aussies, by all accounts, have been royally screwed by this move in particular.

     I'll be at Gamestop on the 20th to pick up my CE. I'll never understand why people order stuff through the mail anyways. You guys should of learned that with the first expansion of WoW.

     

    What I 'learned' was a lesson repeated in TOR -- when I went to go preorder a physical copy from Gamestop on July 21, I was told that 'we sold out of those 2 weeks ago.'

     

    ???

     

    I promptly turned on a heel and walked out of the store, never to return. If they can't train their employees correctly regarding a $150 dollar purchase on the biggest MMO of the year that I am trying to make the day preordering began, they don't get my business. And I am hardly alone in stories like these -- the CS at Gamestop teeters dangerously between incompetence and 'we're getting reports of a violent shooting spree at a local gaming retailer -- more at 11.'

     Good luck to you all.

     I'm not going to play it but I hope everything launches smoothly for those who are.

    What does learning have to do with it? Bioware stated in very clear terms that they would offer a grace period. Tons of players purchased their CE not worrying about shipment times. Bioware then reneged leaving said 'tons' of players up shyte creek. Cancelling a sold out CE really isn't a viable option for many.

     

    Bioware brought this upon us and chose to answer our cries for help with "we'll talk to the distributors and hopefully they can fix our @#%@up";.

     

    Will life go on? Yes

    Will a crap ton of players be pissed come Dec. 20? Yes

    Will a whole bunch of that crap ton not even see this coming Dec. 20 and raise #%#@ storm part 2 on that day? Yes.

    You stay sassy!

    I have a CE from Amazon and I have Release Day Delivery.  From what I understand, not everyone was offered it.  Maybe Amazon realized just how big the CE was and backed off, getting rid of that option?

    iI dunno, how many do you think they will allow on day 1? The July 30th sales figure showed roughly 120,000 preorders.

    http://www.vgchartz.com/preorders/40755/USA/

    It showed a 99,000 increase in the week of 7/23-7/30.

    So that would mean around 20,000 preordered in the first 2 days.

    Oh, god, this a thousand times over. Given their website's flimsy reputation when a lot of people are on it, I expect the forums to be down pretty much all day on the 20th.

     Most Gamestop employees don't know exactly what's going on, like how they didn't know that they were supossed to give out a game code on 7-21-11 when someone pre-ordered SWTOR. I always make sure I know my self what is going on and then inform the idiot pimple faced kids at the Gamestop. Then once they check it all out and realize I am right, then that store is good to go. But I usually only pre-order games from there when I know that particular employee and know that they are informed. Usually it is the manager, if he isn't there then I come back later.

    Some of us don't have much of a choice. I live way back in the hills of Kentucky where you won't find a gamestop, bestbuy or nothing else for that matter.

    It seems like alot of you guys have bad people that work at your gamestops. The 3 that are around me all with in 1.5 miles have people that know there games and what is coming out. Hell it is hard to get a job at the gamestops around here as you have to know everything about gaming. you gotta know Console and PC gaming to get a job at the gamestops around here. Plus here there is always a manger working.

  • dishonestbrodishonestbro AabenraaPosts: 9Member

    I feel extremely lucky getting holiday the 19th from school. Can't get better. So ready for launch and probably even gonna sit and nerd it out here in the pre access, even though the school have to be taken care of. SW:TOR > school tho! Or did I misunderstand something? image
