Preordered on 23th of July and I was not in the first 2 batch. Hope to get in today.

This lack of communication doees not sounds good for the future. We've been waiting years for that game, searching with excitment every piece of information we could grab. Now that we're so close to get in you could at least tell us how many total invites you're planning to send and how many batch represents the 21th of July for example. Now I'll be spending my whole day waiting for an email and beeing frustated. Oh yes I could go out and do some other stuff but come on...I've been waiting years for the very moment I'll be able to play I don't really do to anything else at the moment even if I'm pissed to not know if I'll be able to play today or tommorow...

Not totally true, I pre-ordered CE in July, I'm not in yet.

On the SWTOR launcher it says, "There is currently no active subscripti on this account. Activate your account here." Upon clicking on it, it takes me to my account summary where I have to make five security questions (done that), complete contact information (done that), and then it asks for my Product Registration Code, which I have already entered way back when I pre-orderd for the early edition. I obviously can't use it again.

You pre-ordered to make sure the game didn't sell out on launch day before you could get your copy. If you pre-ordered SPECIFICALLY for Early Access, then you should have read the part where it said "Up to five days" and comprehended it for what it meant. Up to. Not guarunteed five days. Up to. You knowingly paid for the CHANCE to play up to five days early.

If you didn't understand this, you should brush up on reading comprehension.

As to your continual hammering at how they're pissing on an opportunity to test their servers...they already tested their servers at maximum load. They don't need those metrics anymore.

What they -do- need is to see how their servers respond to continual authentication requests as new users download and sign in to their game. They need to get an idea of how each blade performs under X amount of users using the release client so they can plan for their launch date rollout. They need to respond to issues as they arise on this microcosmic level as opposed to "OH CRAP ITS LAUNCH DAY AND THE INTERWEBS CAUGHT FIRE".

That is PRECISELY why they are staggering this.

The moral of this story: shut up.
Just love you!!!

What's the issue? You're telling us that you could handle 2 million people but you can't handle one million people?
There are 1 million preorders. For physical copies. Through major retailers. In the US. Bought it through Origin? Yeah, you're not counted in that 900k. Got it in London? Neither are you. They had 2 million beta testers but I know that out of the dozen or so friends of mine waiting for the game to come out only me and 1 other actually did the beta. Small sample size, I know, but extrapolate it. I'd bet a small pile of credits this game sees well over 3M people within the first week.

Still no 3rd wave, things look like there slowing down a bit.
