Its staggered for a reason, so we all dont log in at the same time in the same zones, doing the same quests, kill stealing etc etc etc

There is reasoning for it.... and its first come first serve, its irrelevant which edition you purchased, some people can afford the deluxe edition, some people will barely be able to afford the subscription, to go down that route is to say only the rich get access pre launch?

you have waited for this game for 2+ Years, I cant even remember the first time i heard about it, was donkeys ago, what harm is waiting another 1-7 days for your access?

I purchased Deluxe, i figured if im going to do it on one game, may as well be for star wars >=D but that being said, I dont even think I will log in until the 23rd, because I cant be bothered to download the game client as it takes all dam night!

typically I am travelling home 23rd and didnt want it being delivered to my house, when I was going to be with my parents for Xmas, so think of yourself as lucky! you still get a good 10 days + on me!

What about "Good things come to those who wait" Lol But I do agree with the fairness. whoever gets here first gets first access. I shoulda preordered when it was announced but waited a few days.
Those who seek attention and post they are unsubbing are much like wailing babies wanting attention.

How is that fair to someone who ordered a day later and spent 100$ more than you and doesn't get to play?

I think the word you're looking for is "unfortunate."

It's the best way Bioware could have done it, and rewarding those who essentially fronted them money as soon as they could is perfectly fair business practice.

Don't get me wrong, I feel your pain.

I was never in favor of a staggered release.. and the first time I heard of it, I regretted pre-ordering it and getting involved.

People who bought on the shelf, who paid in full for the product should have the same chance as everyone else...

The game shouldn't be open until the 20th.
That's a bad analogy because that's exactly what this is.

I got to the coffee shop first, I get in line first, and I get my coffee first.

This is coming from a guy who pre-ordered in November, so I understand.
