"We are getting closer!"
Great to hear... But what are you guys going through? Like... anything besides "hiccups"?

If you haven't got an ETA how do you have any idea if you are getting closer or not?

Part of me is glad this thread is exploding - it's like 3rd party confirmation a sizable amount of folks still play this game and confirms it's not dead.

Taking the time to get it right is far better then having the servers go up on time a mess, I appreciate the communication today.

Yes.

Not only is it money I'm paying for a service I'm not receiving (or at least that's the case for the Euro players - whether we East Coasters get to play today is still in the air), but it would be an indication from Bioware that they take this matter seriously, take their customers seriously, and have respect for their customers' time and loyalty.

Might as well give up hope for today, cause I would imagine that its getting close to quitting time and they will be going home or out to hang out at starbucks or a bar.

Erm... I've seen longer outages, across several games, over the years.
So I guess maybe your gaming history isn't that long, or not covering as many games, or you've recently run a gaming history cleaner program

But all joking aside, and despite that there have been plenty of bigger outages between SWTOR and other games over the years, generally I agree on principle that the companies behind the games should invest in something better than the type of servers that one might be able to dumpster-dive for in an alley behind walmart.
There are some companies which do it right, but let's face it, if a company thinks they can squeeze an extra buck of bottom-line out of using tin cans and strings instead of something that actually connects to the internet, then they'll be running with the tin cans - and often blame it on the customers' PC's that their product isn't functioning properly.

you haven't been waiting since 9:00 am PST...... I have patience, but the big thing here that sucks, is this isn't a job. its for fun, but we're all sitting around twiddling our thumbs cause we think maybe the next 5 minutes it will start.

worst is..... most likely bioware wont give anything more than a "thanks for waiting" and we know it.
