Thank God! Finally! Someone thought to do this the right way. You would not believe how many times I've had to wait to get my pre-order because I was idiotic enough to buy it online instead of going into a store to get it.
We have extended preorder access to Dungeons & Dragons Online™: Stormreach™ (DDO) through March 5th in order to help address the concerns of players who have told us they may not be able to get a copy of the retail box for DDO right away. Players who have created an account using their preorder bonus key will continue to have access to DDO through Sunday, March 5th. We expect most retail stores to have DDO boxes available on or before this time.
Starting on Monday, March 6th, players will need to redeem a retail key at https://billing.turbine.com in order to continue playing. Players who are unable to obtain a retail key before March 6th won’t lose their account information or characters and will be able to play those characters once they enter a retail key.
As a reminder, the opportunity to earn the Head Start Event founders helmet and founder status ends at 8:00am EST on February 28th. So be sure to log in and get your guilds set up!
It's no longer a race to see who gets in first, etc, etc.
