EA Fucks Me....Fucks Me HARD

#1 Edited by OGCartman (4354 posts) -

I preordered Warhammer Online Collectors Edition about 4 months ago, and get an email telling me that its backordered and il get the game later.

Thank you for ordering on EA Store (US). Unfortunately, the product(s) you've ordered is currently out of stock and could not be shipped. The product(s) has been placed on back-order and will be shipped as soon as possible when the stock becomes available. You will receive another e-mail notification when your order has actually shipped.

Thats fucking bullshit! What is a pre-order for? To get the game guaranteed right when it comes out?

On top of that, this was my most hyped game :(

Am i the only one that thinks is horrible? Or is this sort of bullshit common.

Update: EA Sent out this message, and was posted on the Warhammer Aliance Forums by an admin.

"Greetings!

Some players have recently received an email stating that their Collector's Edition Pre-Order has been back ordered. This email was sent to most on accident and the issue has since been resolved. A majority of those who received the initial email will have their order processed and shipped on time. A small number of customers were affected by the delay due to these issues. Those affected by this will be notified via email to inform them of how they may continue playing until their retail box arrives.

Rest assured anyone affected will be able to continue playing uninterrupted as they wait for their copy to arrive. We apologize for any convenience this may have caused and if you have any questions about your order, please contact customer support by visiting:
http://eastore.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/eastore.cfg/php/enduser/home.phpand click on the “Contact Us” link.

Thank you!"

And they also sent me an email saying that it was a mistake, and that i will get my order. Apperently its bin shipped, so WOOOHOOO.

Lol stupid EA.

This thread will get hundreds of views just because it has the word "fuck" in the title.....

It happens from time to time, for some reason its more likely if you pre order early, I usually put a pre order in a couple of months beforehand.

Huh, I would have thought that a company as reputable as EA would treat their customers better.

You honestly should of never done such a thing...could of preordered it from amazon, or Gamestop..even best buy probably and actually had got it on time... I don't know why you would even think of using EA to preorder it from :\

I heard the same thing from a buddy yesterday. Just goes to show no matter how much it makes sense when dealing with anything EA, don't do it.

Dude....are you playing the game or not?

Please tell me you're playing the game.

If you're pissed off about not actually getting all the cool swag on time, that makes sense. But if you actually don't have the game yet...I'm sorry. There's nothing you can do to solve your problem except kill yourself. The client is a free download if you preorder it from any of the companies on that link, including the EA store. You should have received an email or message giving you not only a key to get into the game, but (as a CE pre-order) a four day head start pass.

The client is officially downloadable from fileplanet with your pre-order key; unofficially, it's available on torrents.

This is why I never preorder anything online. I trust Gamestop more.... but then again I work there and I get a discount

EA is just too big for you...

You're not the first, you're not the last.

That was very injustice, people at the EA store you are under arrest, your coming with me, dead or alive.
