Something I am starting to really appreciate about the folks over at World of Warcraft, when they said the servers were going to be up, they were up, not a second past the reported time. Its seems like swtor sets a time and it may, or may not actually be that time. I think these guys need to figure out how to port patches a little better.
Blizz is probably the wealthiest gaming machine out there, they can throw however much money they want on staff and technology to ensure things get done. But think of this, the player animation for the very first original WoW races haven't changed in years!!! They still look like crap off the Nintendo. But look at the pandaren and newer races and see how detailed they are, Blizz doesn't turn back for anything, not even improving the old content. That just irks me in a way you know.
