It was my understanding that you can only post here once you have received your invite email to Early Access?

I just woke up and saw that I received mine around 6:23AM EST and the subject header was "Your Wait is Over" or something like that. I launched the client, agreed to everything, and then saw that the Play button is available to me, meaning that I can go into the game and play! I choose not to because I want to play Back to Karkand [BF3] which just released for PC today so I probably won't get into SWTOR into later tonight EST.

However I see many people talking about how they are waiting for their invite or asking about what "wave" they are in and so on. Well, if they haven't been invited, then how are they able to post here? I was under the assumption that you need to be invited to the EGA before you can post here and if you aren't invited, you can only VIEW the forums, not post in them.

What am I missing?

Sorry you can't hold your EGA over us, but the forums are for Pre-orders

Anyone with a pre order code can post. Simple as that.

On the 20th, only people who put the actual retail key into their account will be able to post.

Oh okay, so as long as you pre-ordered, you can post here [assuming you entered in your pre-order code]. My apologies, I must has misunderstood.

Either way, nice to see another October 2008er!!!!

Right now, those who redeemed a Pre-Order Code are able to post on the forums. This allows us to assist people who are having issues who did use a Pre-Order Code, even if they are not able to play yet. Then, at launch, those who have redeemed a Game Code will be able to post. Hope this clears that up

The forums are available to view by anyone, but in order to post all you have to do is pre-order or purchase the game. EGA is nothing more than a head start.

Either a memory of the sticky that clearly explained how the forums would function upon being brought back up...or you merely missed that thread before the wipe.
