How will “priority” builds affect commodity constraints?

With literally thousands of “Priority” builds bypassing the time stamp system and being forced to the front of the line ahead of early reservation holders, how much will this cut into the supply of parts for those initial earlier reservations?

Not really possible to calculate that. I get this may be a rhetorical question, but without knowing what the priority builds are, what all the other builds are, and how badly commodity constraints affect builds there is no way of knowing.

Imagine we're all at a wedding reception waiting for the buffet. Any minute now they're going to come around and call up each table one at a time.

From where you're sitting you can tell there's chicken, and lasagna, and a carving station, and a veggie option, and bacon wrapped scallops, and stupid salad, and those mini cannolis everyone loves...

And then the Bride announces that she's going to let her mother cut in front of everyone.

How does this affect your chance at getting a chicken breast from the first batch out?

We're all in line at the wedding buffet, and they called up the tables in order, and we're just all standing here... there's chicken, and lasagna, and a carving station, and a veggie option, and bacon wrapped scallops, and stupid salad, and those mini cannolis everyone loves...

Depends on her moms appetite.

Seems to me that Ford likes to irritate people who waited online for hours at launch. I give this move a thumbs down!

Its the Fast Pass system at Disney. Watch a couple people fly past the huge line and get right on the ride. Doesn't affect how long you wait by a whole lot, and not much you can do about it. Keep moving along...

But you know the only thing you want to eat is chicken and they mentioned ahead of time they are very limited on chicken that night. You also know there is a table ahead of yours to be called. Now instead of just the brides mother, they let 8 people go from the wedding party (3.8% of a 200 person wedding). Now all the sudden you are pissed you may not get chicken from the first tray and worry how long it will take for the second tray of chicken to come out and you are starving.

I'm sorry, but you just might have to wait for the next tray of chicken.

You can try taking it up with the bride.
