they bring the Pre-Order EA page back online. Just send out a cryptic tweet saying it will be back up in 4 to 6 hours, wait 20 minutes and fire it up. You know the crazy's out there are still going to try and register so it might lessen the initial onslaught of registrations. Obviously news will spread like wild fire, but if might space it out enough to keep things moving...

Im wondering if they will get it up in time. Its been borked for over 24 hours, with no clue as to when it will be fixed. If its not fixed until say thursday and friday we will have everryone crashing their server again and we will be back at square one. If they cant get it back up today they need to delay EA/Launch or just scrap EA and compensate us.

Yeah, because not having pre-order items for a couple days is worth delaying the launch. Smiley: rolleyes

It is because people PAID for early access. I guess you are fine with SE fraudulently ripping off customers?

You seriously just need to calm down. Not having pre-order items for 1 or 2 days of early access isn't the end of the world. I think you just need a hug or something.

I don't remember the option to pay just for early access or I certainly would have done it for my girlfriend's account.
You are paying for the game and they are giving you early access.

As much as I hate to agree with that guy... no... early access was an advertised perk for pre-ordering. It has to be provided because it was advertised.

This isnt about the items, this is about playing time we PAID for.

Yeah, and early access is still starting on the 24th. They didn't change anything, you are still getting the time you paid for. You said they should postpone it and launch for pre-order items, which is beyond ridiculous. What are you even arguing about?

I'm confused now, anybody else confused? I thought that the code we need to register for the early access was the same code for all the items including pre-order goodies. So if we can't register the code by Friday, we're essentially NOT getting early access on time which we paid for. If I'm understanding this correctly, they should delay the game if they can't get early access on time. The items in-game won't arrive until the 27th anyways.

It seems the NA/EU site is back up and accepting codes now. For how long, who knows. I managed to get my EA registered on the first try and it went smoothly from there.

Only posting this here because it was already being posted on the Beta forums, so it's probably going to get bum rushed again.

The main problem is that you need to register for EA and the site is down so people can't register therefore they don't get EA. We aren't complaining about them items we are complaining because if you don't register the code you were given you won't be able to log on the 24th and SE said if you preordered the game you'd be given EA, while 2-3 days may not seem like a lot people want what they were tol they'd be given.
