    Im looking forward to this game but i have to say im skeptical of it coming out on the 22nd. it just doesnt seem together that they havent started any type of ordering process for the game, nor any information for the downloading scenarios 8 days away from launch. Im not saying its not possible because noone has ever done what they are doing! This is an MMO first, but it does seem rather like if this is gonna work, they are cutting it close.

    I mean would it be best practice to have 30-40k people downloading the game 7 days away from launch(at the most)? how do publishers handle sales when no one is advertising the game or even has the game in a preorder state 7 days away from the launch? these are things im just wondering since it has never been done before.

    And I mean, no one is advertising for this game, not gamestop, no gaming magazines, no articles, no banners, not on mmosite or mmorpg, and not even stratics.... *sigh*
