Titles sums it up. Was under the impression that the digital pre-order came out earlier than normal launch. Havent heard anything about it recently though.

This.

The pre-order comes with a beta key, allowing users to access and play the game before it is actually released.

Why would pre-ordering allow you to access the release version a week before the scheduled release? How would this release version be any different than the version that was currently on the beta server?

Odds are, that version wouldn't be the same as the version that gets released the following week anyway, considering they make patches and hotfixes on a weekly-biweekly basis.

Edit: Another thought... Why would you want access to a version of the game that not as many people would be on? People complain often enough about the matchmaker supposedly messing up (even though Riot has repeatedly published the matchmaker results from these matchups and have proved that it is normally just players overreacting to a bad loss). If you're playing on a server that fewer people have access to, you may end up hitting a point where the matchmaker cannot find a decent matchup for you. If this were the case, how do you think people would react?

ya i'm glad i'm not the only one who's wondering where the pre-order stuff is. I read a few days ago that we should be getting an e-mail soon and I've kept checking and find nothing. Was starting to wonder if i screwed up somehow hah

Source?

Riot is going to let people spend actual money in the store, during OB? Will stats/purchased-items get reset in Q1 2010?
