It doesn't matter if you class this as launch or not.

there will be many level 50 players laughing and bragging all day, telling you how smart, and great they are because they preodered the game before than you did.

if you wanted to play on a pvp server, you better get used to the idea to become the punchinbag of every level 50 player, including the exploiters.
How is any of that different to a month from now, for people buying the game then?

Welcome to MMO design. Oddly enough this has to be taken account of in the first place.
For 2000 Cartel Coins, a year-old game breaking bug may get fixed.
For $20, an epic death scene for your character is unlocked to end your overly expensive class story. Subscribers pay $10.

Isn't that the point? If you got in early, you're good and happy, if you didn't, you're not. Only about 10% got in, the 10% of customers can be happy so the 90% can rage. Sounds like a good launch!

No, but somebody else would've. It's the way people work. I semi-agree with him though, for the customer there are more disadvantages than advantages, yet for the company there are more advantages. Guess the question is who would you rather have satisfied? Your fanbase where your FUNDING basically comes from, or your company?

Easy choice for me, from a business perspective.
