No TSW till Monday ....

Some of us ordered Hardcopy version online and the retailar (due to 4th of July) will not be able to deliver it till Monday.  This morning Funcom deactivated all pre-release account w/out a retail/release key.  

Some are claiming that even with a valid key they cannot login.  Was it to much to ask to extend the grace period till Sunday? I did and CS denied my request :-(

While I suck my thumb, Illuminati will take over the world.  I won't be able to do a think about it.  When I will log on Monday, my char is probably transformed into a forced illuminati slave...

    I was having same issue. I fixed it by entering my box CD key.. entering in my paypal info then you need to go to payment options on the funcom site and pre-authorize your paypal.. Then i changed my game password, waited about 5 min and log in worked!

    I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

    It does seem a bit silly to me that they didn't take the 4th of July into account.  It might not matter to most of the world, but I'm pretty sure, based off of the server distribution, that the US is where Funcom gets most of it's customers from.

     

    Now I'm stuck waiting until Monday, as I'm sure many people are who decided to order online.

    I'm not among those with the retail key delay due to delivery, but several people is.

    IF the game goes F2P in 3 months ill personally buy you $100 in funcom points because it just isn't going to happen

    Well, funcom extended the grace period for 24 hours, i think they should have gone witht he full weekedn, but it's better than nothing.

     

    It's interesting that Amazon and other retailers that has this late delivery, however, delivered on time for those that got the "launch date" delivery option.

     

    The delivery issues then don't seem to be on EA's hands (EA is the one dealing with the boxed disks) as if they have had the disk production or supply delayed people wouldn't have gotten their disks already.

     

    Some people have Amazon stating that they -sent- their disks today, which is rather screwed up from Amazon.

    I guess all the QQ worked.  I wish it was 48 hours instead of 24.  Well something is better then nothing...

    If you order from the FC website via digital download you're safe to play immediately (only the download will take you a while so do it overnight), it's only from outside retailers that copies haven't been shipped or arrived yet that those people won't be able to play till Monday it seems.

    i have the game installed since i played 2 beta weekends.. Hopefully it will just patch it.

    Thanks.
