Ending the EGA Discussion

I went back and found my original Pre-Order Email received July 21 from swtor@email.swtor.com

it says "The wait is over. Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ is now available for pre-order. Order now to lock in your Early Game Access."

"Early Game Access - create your character and explore the universe first."

"The order in which you purchase and redeem your Pre-Order Code is the order in which you will gain early access to the game, prior to official launch day."

there were no asterisks and no fine print of any kind. what they promised was that if you pre-order you will gain early access at some point during the early access period. BW did NOT claim you would be guaranteed any amount of time in early access or early access on a particular day/time.

Based on BW's history one can also interpret their stance on Early Access is to provide an opportunity to create a character for launch and that's it which they easily could have opted for but didn't. DA:O was released in this manner lest you all forget your BW history.

So you preordered in July? You have EGA then? Why post on here? Go play.

Another OP made the exact same thread as you 30 minutes ago, and actually found the clause and had to post a retraction.

for bioware to keep the promise they only require a person be given an hour or less of EA before the launch

[edit] ok I checked my e-mail and it was announced on the 21st of July that the order in which you pre-order is the order in which you play, my mistake. I wish I woulda known, lol...

Nothing at all about how long the Early Game Access is even...

Oh ****...

The order in which you purchase and redeem your Pre-Order Code is the order in which you will gain early access to the game, prior to official launch day.

I am mistaken, editing my first post, I should have read that e-mail better.... lol... Unless they somehow managed to change the html in the e-mail? lol...
