Staggering EGA is pointless

I'd think doing some maintenance just prior to the floodgates opening would be a good thing -- all the other MMO's I play have regular weekly server maintenance (patching, restarts, etc) and I expect TOR will as well. Why would you think that a maintenance window would negate the usefulness of the staggered rollout?

not the maintenance itself but the massive influx of people afterwards i personally do not mind waiting just wondering why they are drawing this out they cant just ignore all the forum rage can they

personally let ppl in faster if the servers bug or crash it gives them alot more time to fix for launch

i want this mmo to succeed having a bad launch may impact it negatively

I just don't understand what the staggered approach is meant to achieve and nobody at EA/Bioware has given an explanation. Come the 20th when the servers come up you will have the million+ pre-orders and god knows how many over the counter sales jam the system all at once to try and log in.

If the planets weren't phased with a maximum number of people per phase then I could understand the need to stagger.

this it just doeasnt make sense they would risk it on launch and not EGA seems like the point of head start is to fix/avoid problems before launch

And how long did it take until they had too many servers? You do not understand the full reason of the staggared launch.

Right now people are itching to play, get their names, and rush through the addictive early zones. Once you get up there later though, you're not going to stay up all night playing.
Speak for yourself, I plan on getting 2hours of sleep for the next year!
