In America there have been about 1 million pre orders

Making a conservative estimate i would say 1.75 million copies have been pre ordered overall.


At this rate 250,000 people a day would get access spread evenly over 7 days.

Spreading this out evenly in a responsible fashion i would say they would have waves every 3 hours, so not to cluster**** to many people.

So at 8 Waves a day this would be about 32,000 people every 3 hours, now thats a lot of ************ people in one spot!


Taking into account that there were about 300,000 pre orders the first week, its safe to say that if u didn't pre order the first week, your not in on day one.

So i would say that everyone who pre ordered in the first week should be in by sometime day 2 at the latest.

Well last wave was only a 2 hr span. So I hope they keep up that pace so I am in today.

Excellent

I can deduce by this that the Amount of invites every 2 hours should be at minimum 21 thousand, but since the beta was able to handle a much higher load i would really put the number somewhere at around 30-50 thousand, possibly more.

So since there about 200 servers, and about 2 million pre orders, i would say evenly around 10000 people a server. Taking into account the split of American and Euro servers, with more Us servers, this would probably be spread around 60/40.

Just looking for something to do while i wait lol

Let me not forget the PVE and PVP server choices as well, so this spreads things a bit more unevenly among servers.
