I find it funny they are already worse then the WoW community the love to insult. They are far more vile and hate filled and have zero empathy for others.
Best comment I have read yet!

Yep because they can. Launch is a week out. Nobody is entitled to anything.

I just want to put it down for the record that the way this early access program has been implemented is truly one of the most poorly conceived ideas that I've ever personally encountered in over 25 years of playing video games. I've personally participated in launches of 6 other MMO games, and there is nothing in those experiences that compares to how ridiculous this process is.

When you are dealing with a pre-launch even that is only for pre-order customers, after an extensive and massive beta testing period that was a huge success according to nearly all sources involved - it begs the huge question as to what is the limiting factor in the way you have chosen to roll out this game. I personally participated in the beta in a very limited way (not by choice, mind you, I just wasn't lucky enough to get a key) and was only online during the big Thanksgiving weekend test. That test was wonderful - there were a huge number of servers, and a huge population of testers. The game performance was amazing.

So, EA/BW - what exactly are you afraid of?

The ONLY way this should have been done is to have given ALL pre-orders (perhaps separated only by level of game purchased - i.e. CE customers get 7 days, SE get 5, e.g.) access at exactly the same time. Of course it will overload the servers and queues would ensue and all that - but that's what we all expect. Making your customers wait unknowingly with no idea how long it will be or when to expect an email is just adding insult to injury. A poor alternative would have been to send out emails with a set time and day that your access would be available.

I read in the top post how you are monitoring the server performance and are rolling waves based on server performance. Are you seriously saying you have to wonder at this point if your servers can perform up to the task - when you probably still have 90% of the launch day players yet to even be able to play? That is not at all a good message to be sending at the beginning of an MMO franchise.

At any rate, I love this game. I love BW. But I truly despise and am sickened by the way you chose to put your customers through so much stress for absolutely no good or justifiable reason.

I truly hope you improve, because this is a very very poor way to start out. ! !!! !
Yup, but sadly i can no longer copy and paste message. i already have had multiple warnings to day for spamming, when i have been not.

The server are live, Only certain people are allowed in them. What they do, will effect your so called launch. It is not hard to grasp, the game launched today. Their will be nothing special happing on their so called "launch date", they are not going to whipe the servers!

They state about adding new servers soo... what about guild program? Freaking joke if they need to add more server to place people that are guilded on one of those "full" servers.

Does anybody even read what kind of crap they write? I was all nice till I read this.
Peace is a lie...

They forgot one thing, this is a mmo. Where people like to be the first to compete stuff, in game. People have a consumer right to be all treat the same, they are giving people special treatment. out of line
They gave you special treatment as well

This is a big day for us; we are launching Star Wars: The Old Republic, BioWare’s largest and most ambitious project to date

Launch is today sweaty. Anyone who thinks otherwise apparently doesn't know what an MMO is.
x-server lfd tools are great for cramming people into content, but quality > quantity.

Everyone paid the same pre order price, WHY should some of us be treated second class? We are getting a lesser service for the same price, i am sure there is a law against this somewhere.

So don't give them your money then. Problem solved. Can I mark you down for a cancel?
I'm about to take over the galaxy, so if you want to be on the good side of my dark side, you better start kissing my back side.

Oh don't worry, my account won't be renewing after the first free month. That "other" buy once, no sub mmo will be out by then. You know, the one that has been made for players, and not been face rolled into release.
