EBgames online and Warhammer CE Pre-order

Ok so I pre-ordered Warhammer CE the day it was announced on this site that it was available.  Thats the 26th for those of you who don't check daily.  And no codes?  I e-mail EBgames/Gamestop and am told the manufacturer messed it up and they will send me my codes when they are available.  So as I wait patiently... errr I guess WAITED patiently (since I am done being patient.)  I have seen more and more people who ordered online after me getting their codes.  Now I know it's childish to think this but isn't it usually first come first serve.  Why have online and brick and mortar game stores forgotten this.  It seems the only time they want to remember is 12am launches when they make everyone line up.

Shouldn't they treat every kind of pre-order event or bonus as if it were a special event, set up queues and track orders to ensure everyone gets what they order in the order they should.  Spoiled little me who is used to online shopping usually laugh at the guys who go to the stores because often there are many online only bonuses.  Now I am wishing I went down the corner gamestop and picked it up there.  My friend did and got his code and has been waving it in my face for days now.

I have e-mailed their customer service twice now I hope they reply soon.  My patience is wearing thin, as my excitement grows for this game.  I look forward to getting in early, and getting an edge on the opposing factions who join up on release day.  Mwahahahahaha...  I am sure I will still die often to the noobs.  I suck at pvp, but god I love the rush!!

Good luck to those who still have to order.  With that much stuff cramed into the CE it is probably the first CE thats truly a deal for everything you get.

why dont you just cancel?  Amazon and several other places still have copies.  Gamestop btw lied to you the manufacture did not screw up.  Gamestop corporate screwed up and sent out tons of ticket codes early to stores..no idea what their online store is doing.  But I thought they were giving them to you within 48 hours?? 

Sounds like if they can't give you a straight answer then cancel and go somewhere else while you still can.  Amazon gives your codes immediately.  EAStore & Walmart start sending theres on April 3rd but tell you it'll be 3 to 10 days.  (they're sending you a pre order box).

It wasn't about open beta starting tomorrow it's about getting what was promised.  But it looks like it was sorted out they finally responded to my e-mail's and sent me the codes.  It turns out due to some of the mass mailings they were doing to push out the codes once they got them.  They ended up on spam filters for my ISP.  After contecting them and having them re-send the codes it worked.

EBgames/gamestop has renewed my faith in online shopping and now my friend has nothing to hold over me...  Well except the fact that he can whoop me in PVP, on just about every game and console out there... damn his nimble fingers and quick reflexes.

I'm having a similar experience, but with the brick and mortar version of EBGames. I preordered on the first day that you could (26th also) and was told that they did not have the "rave cards" in stock yet, and they would call me when they did. Here it is August 10th and they still claim to never have received the cards. Should I be worried? Who do I contact when its the brick and mortar store that is screwing up?

EB Ganes has been known to been poor with its Preorder offers. It is not the first time I have had friends complain about it.  When Anarchy-online had its pre-orders EB games never gave the codes for the pre-order bounses and I hear about this from other games.  They have a history of just being piss poor with preorders
