Pre-ordering the retail has 0, zero, nada, null to do with the early access key. Sorry.

Do you really think people other than latecommers will feel sorry for you? Come on, you don't do you?

Do us all a favor, **** and cancel. No one feels sorry for you.

this came off Amazon forums

I have pre-orderd Star Wars: The Old Republic Collector's Edition (hereafter, TOR). At the time, we were told by Stephen Reid, Senior Online Community Manager for Bioware, that we would have a Grace Period between the game's official launch and when we would have to input the game key to permit play. This grace period was put into place because, for various reasons, not all players could be assured of obtaining the game on launch day.

On 12/7, Bioware suddenly and without explanation revoked the Grace Period, in contravention of previous statements by Mr. Reid, and other members of Bioware's customer service. I respectfully request an answer to the following four questions:

1. Why was the Grace Period removed, after it had been explicitly promised, and after people relied on the promise to make their decisions as to how to get the game?

2. What do you have to say to the people who relied on your misrepresentations?

3. When did you know about the Grace Period revocation? If it was before 12/7, why did you wait to communicate it?

4. Why does Europe get the game in stores on the 15th, but North American Players must wait until the 20th? Do you realize that allowing NA retailers to sell by the 15th would remove Grace Period concerns?

My preferred resolution is a restoration of the grace period. An alternate resolution would be EA/Bioware allowing North American retailers to sell by the 15th, as they have done for Europe. came off Amazon forums

Don't like it, get a helmet.
ATM ea/bioware are asking us to hold there hands because there to scared to handle the influx of players like every other mmo has. YES letting all players in at once has its issues, but they take normally 48 hours to get mostly settled. instead we must wait 7 days and I bet the normal launch issues will still take place. There pissing off alot of people for no reason other then they have no idea how to run a mmo

Yes, show your maturity and intelligence by not reading or comprehending how early access works and doing something stupid.

I didn't get my way, I'm grabbing all my toys and going home.

If you don't like how they're doing EARLY ACCESS then don't participate, wait for the 20th.
Failure to enforce the naming policy on RP servers is one reason I'm semi-retired from TOR. It's a sign that BW doesn't care about quality.

wait until the 15th , if by then you did not receive what was specified then you can cancel with a sleeping mind.... Keep in mind the 13th and 14th are extra bonus mentioned nowhere in any publicity.

The game goes live on the 20th.....

Bioware were nice when they said people who pre-ordered MAY get early access - Yes it helps them at the same time as it allows them to stagger the launch for the bulk of the player base which in turns avoids things such as massive lag/crashes/spammed areas which games such as WoW and more recently Rift suffered on launch (inc expansions)

to top it off - The game "could" sell out quickly. Vanilla WoW sold out, I bought two copies at the time of launch one was a gift but the person didn't play in the end - I sold it on EBay for £150 So yea, cancelling your pre order may result in you not getting ot play the game for a few months till new copies/servers are made (if it sold out that is)

Um no.

I just don't cry about things I am not entitled to.

Let me show you. Read along!

What do I get for pre-ordering Star Wars: The Old Republic?
Securing a pre-order for Star Wars: The Old Republic ensures that a copy of the Game will be reserved for you to purchase upon launch. You will also receive the ‘Color Stone’ virtual item, to change your weapon effect.

Pre-ordering also ensures that you may be granted Early Game Access before the Game’s official release.

We will be bringing down all servers for a short period of time before the launch of the Game. Stay tuned for more details as we get closer to launch .

They actually state that many times throughout the description of the product you purchased. IF you didn't read it, then you are an idiot consumer and are entitled to nothing.

Should you cancel because they robbed you? No. Because they didn't.

Should you cancel because it will save the community from self-entitled whiny children like you? Yes! Yes! And Yes!
