Headstart is rarely, if ever, considered the "release" and se has at no time ever reffered to the ce start as the "release" either.
If you turned the tables and gave SE an extra week to make good on their 'promise', you still wouldn't have any better result. Two weeks from now you will still be playing the same game you're playing today. When I say 'promise' I am referring to the implied changes or improvements SE supposedly has planed. It stands to reason that SE wouldn't expect a review to be any more favorable 30 days later if nothing at all had changed. The only other reason I can think of is that they wanted people to buy the game before reading reviews.
To be honest though, despite their implied 'super duper miracle patch'(lets be honest, that is what it would take to get this games ratings up from the dismal 4.x area to a respectable mark) I don't believe you will see it happen over the course of the next week, two weeks or even two months. If somehow SE does manage to pull this one together it would be up there among the greatest comebacks in history.
Only hips + boobs all day and hips + boobs all over my icecream
30 bucks is almost free
Its personal preference and all, but yes we need to educate WoW players that this is OUR game, these are Characters and not Toons. Time to beat that into them one at a time.
