I can't believe 343 got it wrong and botched the flight... (Gaming)

Step 1: Why was it not a download code in the invitation email?
Step 2: Why did we have to accept a Waypoint notification for the code that simply redirects us? Something players couldn't do because servers were slammed.

Well, those two are the same step.

Step 3: Why tie the access to the Xbox Insider program without telling anyone beforehand? Something players couldn't do because servers were slammed.

It always has been. Flights aren't a new thing.

Step 4: If the Xbox Insider program automatically acknowledges your account's access to the flight, why did we even need Steps 1-3!?

It works differently for people who want to test out flights on Steam, so they have a 'global' path that both can do.

Step 4. Why do we have to accept a Marketplace redirect through Insider Hub? Why not link it to Joining the Flight in the first place? Something players couldn't do because servers were slammed.
Step 5. If we were going to be redirected to the MS Store anyway for the download, why wasn't the Insider permission a simple acknowledgement click? Most players spent hours waiting for the MS Store redirect to even load, since, you guessed it, the Insider servers were slammed.

This is literally part of what they want to test. This isn't some free demo, it's a tech test. Servers included.
