I dont feel super important or anything like that but the fact that this is even happening is just amazing to me.
Also when talkin about a company that is selling an MMO we the customers are important because without us they go bankrupt and have to shut the doors. unfortunately this is my first cryptic purchase and do you think this has left a good taste in my mouth for future purchases from these guys??? I will definately be thinking twice.. hell three times about purchasing anything with that little cryptic logo on it.

That's silly... it's not at all uncommon for game companies to have various big issues like this during launch... it's happened with WoW, City of Heroes, EvE, Age of Conan, etc... Don't get me wrong, I'm unhappy that I'm not flying the enterprise right now... but I'm not going to "think twice" about cryptic products because of this. We'll all be playing soon, I'm sure.

I hope so. My bridge officers are getting impatient waiting for the mini-skirts to arrive.

It's not just Best Buy copies of the game there are other threads about this probelm. Some people got there's from Wal-Mart, others order it online and got it in the mail. I hope it's only 30 something minutes before I can play.

This would all be fine and dandy if the message stated that "This Key is Not Going to Activate until 12:00"

But instead it's telling me that the key is invalid and that a purchase from Best Buy is equivalent to buying the game from a street vendor in Egypt.

So we'll all continue hammering the authentication server until it crashes or it works I guess.

I'll wait until 12 CST as some are suggesting...

...but boy would I be ****ed if I was someone who ran out at midnight to get this! Shame on you, Cryptic. You've been doing this long enough not to make this kind of mistake!
