EA Ruined Anthem early release launch day

★★★ Newbie

Hey EA, thanks for stuffing up the launch times for Anthem on Origin.

 

People plan around things like this because we actually have lives/families/* to do. You change the Origin golive time at the last minute and all we get is 'sorry for any confusion'. Went from thinking I could play all day Friday (Aussie) to it dropping at 2am Saturday. I expected connection issues, drops out or even bugs... didn't expect that a multinational couldn't fact-check its own release schedule.

 

You deserve all the crap the gaming community gives you as you continue to drop the ball time and time again...

Here's something useful after the fact.

 

Couple days ago there was a Bioware stream were they said the release time was going to be put back a bit, there is a sticky at the top of the page about the time changes as well and multiple replies to others who for some reason can't see the stickie at the top of the page.

 

I took a half day today to start early release as well but when I found out it was delayed a bit I was still stoked that I got out of this afternoons sales meeting.

No, the stream did not say the release was “going to be put back a bit”. It wasn’t pushed back. The time listed in Origin was simply wrong.

Give the EA CEO a ring, I'm sure if you bitcoin him over some more cash he will let you get access.

Make up your mind... do you, or do you not have a life?

Also... sticky posts are sticky for reasons.
