I hope everyone finally realizes that pre-ordering games isn't smart especially months in advance as the devs can always change or even remove features that were previously added, Gamers and youtubers have been telling people for years to stop pre-ordering so when something like this happens I can't help but laugh.
If you want to pre order a game do it the day before the 3 day early access starts.
Glad you made a post about it because I was going to,Legion's performance on PC is all over the place,but then again just about all of Ubi's games on PC aren't optimized well and I have no idea why,they go through the trouble of making their own client and release a big update on it,they create Ubi+ but for some reason they can't optimize their games.
@deathsnap198 Unfortunately that's not up to you that's up to the creators to decide whether they want their game online prior to the release date,I'm not sure if you know this but this isn't the only game that allows content to be streamed or uploaded prior to its release,its all a marketing strategy to bring more people to the game and those "normal people" are their target. They know the fans will buy the game it's everyone else that's the target of these early access streams and videos and ofcourse there's a risk that many won't like it but they also realize it'll also convince people to buy it.
As for those random non streamer/youtubers getting the game early, a lot of that is unfortunately mishaps with shipping and shelf stocking. Amazon accidentally delivers games early all the time as well as target and Walmart. Mom and Pop shops will also put out games early sometimes aswell,that's just how it is there's really no stopping that.
@sacrede5150 You do realize Ninja doesn’t just play Fortnite right? Sea of Thieves sky rocketed in popularity because of him and other big streamers like him,Microsoft also paid him millions to stream exclusively on their platform (Mixer) now why do you think that is? Because they certainly wouldn't be giving him money if he didn't produce results and the devs wouldn't be giving him and others early access to games for no reason either so streamers clearly serve a purpose whether its for sales or exposure.
If you think people aren't buying this and other games simply because their favorite content creator is playing it you're crazy.
Clearly you don't know how marketing works or you would know that while we may not fall for it plenty viewers will,doesn't matter if you have 100 viewers or 1,000 if they feel that you can hold a number of viewers consistently there's a probability of people buying the game. We see it all the time with people like Shroud or Ninja,they pick up a game,stream it and in a couple of hours there's a spike in sales for the game,its just on a smaller viewer scale.
Way more people will buy a game because of a streamer or youtuber than your friend.
