Come on now this is actual "paid for" time we are losing. It simply is not good enough, not by a long stretch. This mmo has gone down the path of all the rest of them in the early days, it must have been avoidable.
Head start? Don't make me laugh. Damn mmo's are a law unto themselves, refund not allowed. Its criminal!
First, remember that people surely work hard at Cryptic to fix this and make our experience more enjoyable in the end. But second, I do hope a sort of Skill Point insurence is offered, in the sense of double SP tomorrow for 3 hours or a similar gesture to help headstarters still have an actual headstart on non-headstart players. Many have used this weekend to grind to a level where not only to be the first with the big ship, but also so that they can form an established fleet which can assist newbies with getting loot, helping them through missions etc when the game really goes live. I do hope some insurence is met, although I understand trouble happens always in the first few days.
this isn't paid for time, it comes with the "free" 1st month of a sub, so actually u get a free 35ish days if u pre-ordered. Also, we get this headstart because we pre-ordered, some people are gonna disappear when they don't actually go get the retail version because they just wanted the pre-order key to get into OB.
