Hey everyone.

We absolutely understand you want to get in and play the game early. It's one of the reasons we expanded our Early Game Access from a maximum of five days to a maximum of seven days. However, there are a couple of important points to realize about today's opening salvo of invites, and the procedure in general for Early Game Access and launch.

First, Early Game Access and launch is not supposed to be a stress test. In our previous Beta Testing Weekends we got up to very large concurrent number of players and brought invites into the game at a very high rate. That was done to stress test every aspect of our systems and servers, and essentially to see if they broke. In some cases, they did, but that helped us improve for launch.

For us, launch isn't just about stuffing our servers with as many people as possible. As anyone who's been through a large MMO launch can tell you, that experience can be painful. Our aim with this launch was to ramp things up gradually, to spread our player population out amongst a variety of servers, to maintain all server types, and to keep queuing to a minimum (although we expect that to happen as we head towards December 20th). So far, all that has been successful for us on Day One.

The second thing to realize is scale. We invited more people to play Star Wars: The Old Republic today than many other MMO launches manage in their entire head-start process. As I mentioned earlier today, when we opened pre-orders we had a huge spike in numbers - far more than most MMOs capture at launch. That was the initial rush. After that, our pre-orders settled down.

What this means is that tomorrow, you'll effectively start to see the pre-order timeline expand. You'll see people who have pre-ordered later than July getting invites. The day after that, more people will be invited. We're actually planning to invite more tomorrow than today, and invite the same number again on Thursday - at which point we'll be into the original 'five days of Early Game Access'.

Last thing. Why aren't we continuing to send waves over time? Two main reasons - one, because we need to see that the servers are maintaining stability over time; adding a lot of players in a short period (in other words, stress testing) can cause stability issues.

Two, our plan is to continue to add servers - but carefully, and in response to demand. We need to monitor that demand and role out servers accordingly. A long-term recipe for MMO failure is to add a lot of servers early on, and then when population decreases, have to close those servers and merge them together.

Our aim is for Star Wars: The Old Republic to be around for a long time to come. Today's just the first step in that - an early step, too - and we'll be running smoothly, with a stable population, before too long.
C'est pas idiot de leur part.

Ou pas les serveurs EU sont quand a eux très peu peuplés, donc leurs histoires de réguler le flux c'est de l'intox.Ils mélangent toutes les précommandes et ayant via le décalage horaires du ****** par rapport au states , j'ai un gros doute que touts les accès seront fournis pour le 15 sachant que aujourd'hui en commençant a 13h ils ont écoulés seulement du 21/07 au 28/07 . 9a fait un peu flipper !

Connerie juste un petit malin qui as mis les dates qui suppose mais c'est surement pas cela, vu qu'ils ont dis qu'ils vont augmenter à partir de demain le nombre de mail dans les vagues de pré-commande.

Sinon oui, même si ma copine à son accès je trouve dégueulasse qu'on ne puisse pas joué tous en même temps sachant qu'on as tous déboursé 5 € pour un accès soit disant anticipé.
Mais bon le jeu en vos la chandelle puis un ou deux jours en moins ne tueras pas un homme :')

Cordialement,

Ce n'est pas vraiment un "fake" . D'une ce sont les chiffres de précommandes chez les ricains et qui sont exact, cela ne concerne que les E-Unis et de deux, c'est de la spéculation informative nous montrant à peu près quel jour quel joueur aura son accès anticipé.
Qu'en est-il des tests européens ??!! - What about european testing ??!! - Was ist mit europäischen Tests ??!!
Qu'en est-il de la release ??!! - What about the release ??!! - Was ist mit dem Release ??!!
