    I understand I'm not allowed to beg, and if anyone thinks this is breaching the invite rules I can take down the thread. But I really don't approve of the system. A straight line, with no cuts could work. Even better, you could preorder and when it got to you they'd send it to you. OnePlus is giving themselves problems with this sophisticated system with too many loopholes, making the devoted OnePlus enthusiasts wait. Don't get me wrong, I have tried the system. I only know one person who has a OnePlus, but they said they're all out of invites. So I went online, and after lots of hard work and clawing, have gotten to 45,000 in line. The problem is, even when I do get an invite, its very likely going to be a Europe one or a India one, that I can't use in the USA. So I ask you guys, is it worth it? The 200 or so dollar difference between this and a flagship, or getting a non-flagship for a similar price, but I'll have a stable OS, my camera app will be usable, and I won't have to fight for it? Don't get me wrong, I love the OPT. I loved the OPO and I love the OPT. But I have things to do outside of purchasing my phone, and to get an OP I really feel like I need to devote all my time for a few weeks to get one. It's become my obsession, and I don't think its worth it. So I have decided this:
    1. I may decide to just get the OPO, cheaper, and almost the same.
    2. quit on OnePlus entirely as a company and get a nexus, or a G4, or an M9
    3. Clamor for invites like everyone else
    So I have come to the conclusion the best thing for me to do is to cross my fingers and hope the invite I receive is going to be USA. If I get really lucky someone on the forums will send me an invite (I doubt it, I'm bashing this phone a lot, and us enthusiasts hate haters). I've decided to give OnePlus until the end of the week, before pursuing other phones.

    Did you read until here? Good job, have a pat on the back. Did you skim it? Good job, you didn't have to hear my first world problems of fighting for an invite to pay $389 dollars. Again, sorry to bash the phone! I love this phone, hate the invite system.

    Edit: The timer is more than halfway done, still no invite's to speak of, really rooting for OP...

    Guys, honestly, it's not worth to beg. I would hate to see some well-intentioned folks get dissappointed because the product they had so high expectations did not meet the reality.
