So we've got some threads about Origin, and just wanted to ask if anyone who ordered a digital copy through them has gotten an invite yet. I've seen 2 things so far on the forms

1: EA Origin will send the "full game" codes on the 20th, but that kind of skips the whole "pre-order" thing, and why offer pre-order if you wont honor the pre part?

2: EA Origin will send pre-order codes on the 16th, but why can a third party vendor like Gamestop or Amazon send codes that let you in today when the parent company (EA) wont let you in for 3 more days? You'd think ordering directly though EA would let you in the same as the other guys right?

So, has anyone who used Origin gotten in yet?

You don't need the full game code to play Early Game Access.

I got my pre-order code (including Early Game Accces) through Origin on the 23rd July.

Pre-ordered the digital deluxe from Origin on the morning after the pre-order announcement, and got in with the first wave this morning. Unfortunately I'm stuck at work!

Did you register your pre-order code with https://account.swtor.com/user/codes on 7/21?

That's good to know, though it does kind of imply that Origin users will have to enter a 3rd code on the 20th (1 to confirm pre-order, 1 to play pre-order, 1 to play the full game). Can you (or anyone) clarify this some? There is also the likely chance that the current Origin customer service people are simply thinking about the normal game launch, and not the pre-order too.

You've already gotten your preorder code, and I hope you entered it when you received it -- otherwise you're going to be at the end of the line on the early access distribution. If folks have gotten in via an Origin order, my guess is they're probably playing the game rather than reading the forums. But... no, I haven't gotten in yet, but I didn't preorder until Thanksgiving weekend so I'm not surprised. I'm also wondering when I'm going to get charged for the full game, but I'm happy my order hasn't been mysteriously cancelled, which is apparently happening to some folks.

Yes, I ordered through Origin on July 21st at about 1 AM PST. I got my early access email at about 7 AM this morning. I then had to leave for work...
