Dec 13th! Who's playing now?

Postby Rocketdog » Tue Dec 13, 2011 7:30 am

Two waves of invites are sent out and the nerds are at full rage!! I ordered late and through origin so would be lucky to get only a few days early. Though I admit I'm refreshing my email every so often just in case... :D

They're doing waves once an hour it seems according to their face book page. Also I was reading the forums this morning, and it seems that people who ordered the first day aren't in while people who ordered last month are. So there MAY be some randomness to it. I also don't know if entire guilds are getting pushed in at the same time but that could be the case. That said I'd check the top of each hour if you REALLY want to make sure you get it.
Dog carcass in alley this morning, tire tread on burst stomach. This city is afraid of me. I have seen it's true face. The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout "Save us!"...

...and I'll look down, and whisper "no."

Yeah... I pre-ordered and registered my code on day #1 ... and I didn't get in. I'm at work though so I can't really check it, nor play it even if I were in. However, my development freeze at work begins on 12/16 so I'll have a good 3 weeks with literally nothing to do. I'll have a 50 before Christmas regardless.

I got my invite at 6 am pst while I was sleeping. Now I have to go to work knowing what awaits me. Man I wish I were back in college!

As for the order in which I redeemed my copy... I bought it as soon as it was available for purchase. I redeemed the code as soon as it was sent to me.

One wave left for today, I'm guessing I won't be in until Thursday since I didn't pre-order till october 1st.

The facebook posters said that people who preordered before July 27th have the invite. At least no one from august reported they got in. They also said that everyone that preordered will get in by the 16th (so yay for my late ass!).

So right now, those lucky peeps seem to have the servers to themselves before the mass flood gets access. :cookie:

What about those reports that people who redeemed way recently got in? Was that just people trolling? Or is there some randomness in the system?

Am I the only one who got in today? I redeemed my code on 7/21 for what it matters.

I got in today also, with my actual retail pre-order that didn't get any special hook ups. I was in the second wave of invites, and also redeemed my code on 7/21 (which is when pre-orders were announced, and I placed mine fairly early in the day). There shouldn't be much randomness to the invites, so I'm suspecting trolling, but it's hard to tell.

I can't get into too many specifics, so without mentioning numbers, let me just say that if all goes according to plan, they are prepared to invite more people into early access than have pre-ordered the game to this point. That's a backwards way of saying that even if you pre-order now, you should see at least a day or two of early access.

Last night was so awesome. It was quite a relief to go through the starting areas with only ~50 people in the zone vs the 450-500 there during the beta weekends. General chat was also pretty pleasant considering the TOR bashing crowd probably didn't pre-order on 7/21.

Sounds like they're finishing with the August pre-orders with one more wave today.

I'd be really sad if I don't get to play Friday. :-? :(

I didn't Pre Order till October apparently, so I will probably not be in till Friday. Not a huge deal though, as I am working this weekend (YAY MONEY YAY) and every day this week. So I'll be busy enough. And it gives me more time for Cave Story+

The only disappointment if I get in on Friday is the fact I work late that one night and then work the following morning. So I probably wont' get to play past making my toon Friday lol.

Facebook people reported getting their key and registered late September. I assume the last wave today gave it to the September peeps, so you may get it tomorrow!

Though there's that rumor going that origin people start the 16th 'no matter what.' So I'm at least hoping for that. I'd like to spend my Friday night gaming and drinking a 2L soda rather than picking my nose.

I got in this morning, which I'm sure means Nicole did as well (seeing as how we ordered at the same time).

I won't be able to do anything till tonight, and limited time until Sunday as well. But hopefully I'll see people around tonight!
