A perfectly executed troll move, if I ever seen one.

KS is literally trembling since 15 minutes ago

They should give everyone that pledged in the first hour a "Troll" figure for not having an EB.

Well... they responded to complaints about EB's by giving NO ONE EB's. Now no one will feel left out.

As is not a great one. They should have let us know in advance and that would be a great service. But they are learning

Good call on their part.
Typicallg the only people benefited from early birds are people selling the game on ebay.

I agree... I don't think they learned anything. They could have prevented themselves and their customers some waiting and frustration by letting folks know in advance. From the comments folks mind more that it wasn't announced than that there are no EB. I don't think no EBs would have hurt the campaign at all... and letting folks know up front would have been a nice professional courtesy.

No early bird is a good move. But they should have announced beforehand that would be the plan.

This. I hate the early bird concept in general, so I'm fine with that. But, kind of a dick move not to tell people ahead of time. Only explanation not to is to make sure everyone logs in early to try and get one. But, it's not like the hype wasn't already so big for this one that it was clear they were going to crush it in the first day...

Definitely agree. Fine with it being gone... but I don't want to publicly admit the depravity that I went through to pledge within the first 1000 backers for an early bird that wasn't there.

Plus side, I'll be much less inclined to order a second copy to re-sell now.
