1/10
They clearly used "waves" to describe the invitations to the small percent allowed in game.

Facebook update from yours truly: Star Wars: The Old Republic
"The final wave of emails have been sent. We will be sending another wave tomorrow starting at 8am CST."
Another...
"Another batch of emails has gone out. Good news, this one was a bonus wave, we still have one more to go today!"

"The third wave of Early Game Access emails have been sent, one more to go!

"The second wave of Early Game Access emails have been sent. As always, check your spam folders!"

"The first wave of Early Game Access emails have now been sent! We will let you know when the next wave goes out."

Hopefully they will have a bigger batch set out tomorrow.

I don't think Bioware wil let us down, lets stay optimistic.

Who says they won't? A good takeaway from day 1 is that they went really light on granting access and they can be more aggressive tomorrow. I wouldn't be surprised if they managed to get some Nov pre-orders in tomorrow and December players in by Thursday. That way everyone gets at least 5 days.

I'm sure everything will be running perfectly and they won't need time to look at the data and make sure everything is running smoothly.

lol, you ordered in Nov didn't you?

I don't see how you can possibly even conceive of that, when they haven't even finished with the month of July pre-orders yet. Much less August, September, and October pre-orders in ONE DAY?

I want some of what you're smoking.

For all of you entitlement brats that are getting more than the promised 5 days of early access, here's a tip. Bioware said that most of their pre-orders happened in the first month, July. And most of those July pre-orders were supposedly on the FIRST DAY. So, for all the babies crying that ordered in November..... you're at the end of the line. In fact, if you ordered in September you are ALMOST at the end of the line.

It is early access with rolling access as stated on clicking the fine print link or reading the forums. What was advertised was not this... it is still not this. SWTOR's main page has a snippet that says "Fans who have pre-ordered STAR WARS: The Old Republic can now begin playing the game! ". It is deceptive. And who has extra days?

For all the brownnosers complaining about entitlement seekers wrap your head around this.

BW said they are doing this to avoid queues . A stagger EGA is the exact same thing as a queue only longer (in this case up to 6 days for some customers), and pisses off far more customers than a login queue ever will.

Why not, they did it yesterday....
I will name my pistol Diplomacy, so that I can tell my goody goody republic employers that I use diplomacy to get out of every situation with total honesty....
And after the mission if they ask how it went with the Diplomacy I can say it was a smoking success.
