As the title says. The Devs owe you nothing at this point. They owe you nothing until 2/2/2010. That is when the game goes live. That is when you can all say, 'Well I paid for this game'. You paid for a service that begins on 2/2/2010. The company allowing you to get a head start is nothing but a priviledge. So what is the point in threatening that you will not buy this game because of all that is happening in the beta. Yeas, that is what headstart really is, More Beta Crash testing. How does the company telling you what problems they are having with their servers fix any problem? There is nothing that you can do to help them. What does you knowing accomplish? Absolutely nothing except give you more fodder to ***** about.
Sitting on these forum say that they are doing everything wrong 'ACCOMPLISHES NOTHING'. This is how they are going to run their game for the time being, this is how their server are going to run (Well in a fixed state I imagine) This is how the game play will be.
So Please, Will you stop whining, and *****ing at the Devs for some ridiculous reason and let them work. Oh Wait, They are fixing things because they aren't listening to you whine and moan.
And nobody is cheating, you just suck at PvP. Fix=Suck less
It's not a privelage its a package deal and included in the cost of prepurchasing the game. So yeah you paid for it because its included.
What will you say on 2/2/2010 when its even worse then now?
Most likely wont be worse on 2/2 because all the problems we have experienced would have been experienced on 2/2 if Cryptic hadnt given the pre-orders a head start. It gets a lot of the people going on the game. Its about testing so it breaks before it comes out so they can fix and adjust problems.
When I preorder a product, and one of the attract features ("reasons to buy") for that preorder is that I get special access to the servers ahead of the masses so I can get a Head Start...and then the servers are so unstable that the "head start" is complete bunk...
...then yes, I do have a legitimate complaint and a reason to get angry with Cryptic.
If they didn't want to provide the service, then they shouldn't have sold it to me.
Somebody call the WAAAAAmblulance! Mommy, Mommy! My game doesn't work! Help! I can't find Sulu!
GET OVER IT!!!
Do you know how many closed beta days I missed because of stupid crap like this? Hell, I paid lifetime for CO and wasn't even let into STO's closed beta for a good while. I once called out from work just to get some beta time, only to find that I got the hours wrong and completely wasted my time. I b*tched and moaned, but you know what? I didn't get anything for it. Instead I decided that I would shut up, wait it out, and be thankful for what beta time I did get. Eventually, they dropped a whole nonstop weekend and open beta soon after.
Now the game is coming out. No, it's not perfect. But it's the closest thing I have to making my own crew, ship, captain, and enjoying all of that with friends. I AM THANKFUL. So much so, that I don't mind a little down time. Once everything is in order, I'll get to spend plenty of time playing the game that I enjoy. All it requires is patience.
The ONLY people who have a right to be mad about anything are the Gamestop preorders. They got the short end of the stick.
Everyone else just shut up and be thankful that the game even exists.
Do you actually believe all these problems will magically go away on Feb. 2nd, when they'll have even more people hammering the servers then they do now?
I think he does. He also failed to realize that he bought the headstart regardless if he wanted to. As a result he is paying for this and they aren't doing a good job with his/our money. I realize that there is a lot of demand, but wouldn't it be smart to at least get enough server space for preorders. That is the point of preordering. It makes sure you know how much server space to get.
