this is BS to me why would they punish the player, they should punish the retail selling it
and why would they punish someone who's making you money that makes no sense, either you want the game to sell or you don't

Ughhh pretty sure it was implemented to punish the people that downloaded the game. Just so happen early copy purchaser is also affected.

But this was the Japanese release only, they're weird over there, I bet they thought it was funny and kooky. Over here we'd all go apeshit about it because it'll be 'really unfair' wah wah wah.

It's From Software having they're own unique punishment for they're own unique game. Players could have opted to play offline but they didn't. Since the release day was still days away, why not have some fun with the early players. Also the release day has come and gone.

Why punish the player and not the retailer?

To you people complaining about punishing the player:

Why should the honest players have to suffer the wrath of monstrously over-leveled PVP griefers? Give 'em what for, From Software! I for one am VERY glad that no one will have the advantage of early leveling.
