Read it again. It stated a MINIMUM of 12 hours. I'm sure they feel like it would have been nice to be able to go to bed now, as they have been working on this solidly for 19 straight hours. You can't always get what you want. But they told you the deal in no uncertain terms. MINIMUM of 12 hours.
Failure is not defeat until you stop trying.
Desire to play SWTOR finally defeated. It was a mostly good run.

no its a result of them not completing said maintence in the allotted and given time frame. its that simpe game should of been up and running and back online at 1pm p0acific standard time this afternoon no ifs ands or buts. that is the time ea and bioware gave us that's the time it should of been completed and finished what is going on now Is simply stalling and ea and bioware going gee George we don't know how to *********** fix things and we are just sitting around with our thumbs up our *** because we don't know what the hell to do!

If you look at their Twitter feed, the initial post when bringing down the servers today states an estimated time of at least 12 hours. Yes, it has been extended and they delayed opening all the servers up to make sure everything was running smooth.

Well far be it for me to try and rush you guys but it does seem alittle unfair you've allowed some people to login and play while the rest of us have to sit and wait while you are attempting to check on an error you say your having with the game, meanwhile not giving us any information as to when the servers will be back up, that maybe good enough answer for those that play for free , but i am a subscriber i pay to play this game and every hour that you keep me logged out is a hour of my paid time wasted and i know bioware doesn't give a rats *** about that but i think those of us who pay for our accounts should be compensated for our loss of gametime.

This is correct. Investigating the issue and solutions (if needed). No ETA at this time though.

Please provide an ETA. If you are just checking something to make sure then you should be done by now. :/
