Today marks the first day of Champions Online's Early Start program for special pre-order customers. That's not to say the rest of you aren't special, you're just... special in a different way.

But the early start isn't a new concept, and has been going on for a while now. Warhammer Online did it last year, actually. What we'd like to know are your thoughts on the subject. Do you love, hate or just feel generally uneasy about early starts? For that matter, do you even care about them one way or another?

It doesn't seem like the concept is going away any time soon, and you can bet your computer chair that Star Trek Online will have one as well. But who knows, it could just be a phase. Like that time in college when you thought The Cure were the only band in the entire world worth listening to.
