Only a very small number of people with cancel based on getting burnt by late preorders, that's true

December 13th IS the launch date for SWTOR, because people are leveling characters on live severs and will continue to play until the legal launch date, it is ONLY CALLED "EGA" FOR LEGAL REASONS"

This is one of the worst launches in MMO history, average intrence ques > 2 days.. is smooth? please.

This IS one of the best MMO IP's ever (I.E People love starwars)

This MMO does have fantastic story elements that will drive subs and have a solid retention. (I played the Nov 26 beta long enough to pick that up)

This launch WILL make a lot of customers unhappy. it won't make people quit, but rather will be counted as a strike one, and will make people more likely to quit if and or when blizza... bio-ware makes another poor choice like this again... (EGA FOR THE EXPANSION!?!? lol)


What fan boys DON'T want to consider is that, no matter how stupid, when you make PAYING customers upset. IT'S NOT GOOD for business models, period.

These lessons in common sense brought to you by the guy who lives in the real world.

Bang on... it s like the neighbor who you finally call the cops because of the 3 AM noisy parties. Once you lose your patience, it's gone for good... Any little in game molehill is going to be perceived as a mountain....

Funny, the amount of people that actually decide not to play the game based on this will be miniscule.

Out of those people that do quit, because of this a portion of them would have quit after the first few months like any other MMO. Your truth is pretty self contained to your subjectivity to tote it as a real truth.

Silliness. Once everyone is actually playing no one will even care this happened.

It's called EGA so they can argue they are giving you a gift while using some very customer-unfriendly launch measures to make sure nothing crashes and they can boast a successful launch.

But launch was today and 90% of the customers are still out, there are no server queues because you're all stuck on your email.

LOL

EA has had so many strikes with me, I am not even counting anymore.
Bioware is not at fault, they are just doing as they are told unfortunately...

Personally, I am hoping that all these whiners and haters actually do cancel their accounts and don't play the game. That way the rest of us won't have to put up with them afterwards.

Yeah they will, the next time something bad happens and they try to justify canceling there subs, this will be one more bad thing that bio did, it will add weight to the list of grievances.

Bioware did wrong by their customers, even if it was only perceived and unjustified. They are still upset. and when they're the ones with the money. it's their opinions that matter.

The game's launch begins on 20Dec, you're all welcome for a 'chance' to enter the game 7 days early(vice the original days that were guaranteed to the consumers).

Cya at launch.
