    It really should be midnight gmt for all, all other content is fixed time irrelative to time zone so why should release be any different. I'm just Salty as us account

    Probably to even out server load on launch I guess? Although I'd have thought each region would have their own so who knows lol

    Same here. Did you both buy the code via Amazon?

    What time zone you in? I got mines from GameStop. It’s still 9:33pm here so I don’t know if it’ll let me play it at midnight

    I'm in DC. Should be live now for me.
  • Amazon seem to be blaming EA. Delay in receiving the code, which seems like bs considering I have a code, it's just not the one I paid for

    Yes. They are trying to get me off the line by saying they have to contact marketing who may or may not get me another code in 24 hours. They also told me to call EA. But I had this same situation last year and EA won't help; they'll tell you that you have to go through the company that sold you the code.

    This happens ever year because clearly it seems EA screws up the codes.

    So if we manage to get one code it just overrides the timer right? Anyways it’s just a pain in the arse. I should of just got the hard copy even if it meant i would of gotten it later on Tuesday...

    Basically the best I could do was get them to contact me back within 24 hours but there is no guarantee I will get a new code. I complained until they game me a $20 credit, though.

    Yes, when I had a similar problem last year I was given a new code and it corrected the problem.

    Contact GameStop. If you call EA you'll just be wasting your time. They will just tell you that you have to contact the company that sold you the code. EA are great like that.

    Lmao. Well I’m off to sleep. Will be an awesome off day tomorrow.
  • Amazon gave me a full refund and confirmation in writing that I'll get the new code when they've fixed their mess. I got two different consultants to put it in writing. Nag them harder...

    For those that had pre-ordered the Champions Edition but have a countdown showing 3 days still - we're looking into this.
