Good Early Game Access system...even better they started 2 days earlier as a bonus!
A lot of people will be playing this on the 20th, the games true release date.
Good impression, hope other MMO's use this system.

Good to see there are a few reasonable people left around here. +1 (if I could) and good hunting sir.

Best launch ever. And it is even helping me get an early start on ignoring all the 12 years olds/people who act like they are 12.

My first impression:

Woke up early to the sound of my and my fiancee's phones pinging new mail- EGA From Bioware.
We jumped out of bed excited.
She turned on our machines while I made coffee.
30 seconds of patching.
Launched and logged in.
Played until we had to get ready to go to work.

I suspect we'll be suctioned to the game when we get home tonight.

Smooth sailing. Auto added to our guild. No lag.

Yep. My first impression was overwhelmingly positive. I'd buy the Bioware crew beers tonight if I could.

My first expression.

- Lack of communication .
- Poor handling of the community.
- Small waves, you expect them to get all people in with in 2 days.
- No clarification about different regions and invites

In my book this is a failure.

Stop calling it a launch fail, it makes you look ignorant.

And people are QQ'ing about the 2 BONUS days of early access? Get a life.
bioware seems to have disagreed with you..

This is a big day for us; we are launching Star Wars™: The Old Republic™, BioWare’s largest and most ambitious project to date, and we’re very proud that you’ve been able to join us. It’s an honor to be able to share this game with you.

i do agree that the complaints regarding EGA are unwarranted (with the exception of the grace period fiasco)... the info regarding staggered access has been there FROM DAY ONE.

however, this is launch day.. make no mistake about that.

My first impression: This game will be probably be a lot more fun if I ignore the forums. What a bunch of entitled little cry-babies a lot of you are.

I didn't get it but I'm not complaining. I'll just wait for tomorrow. I think they did a good job playing it safe with handling the server loads. Better that some people get to play without lag and crashes then all of us not playing or barely playing because of long queue's, lag and server crashes. If they let everyone in today like some people were hoping, than the result of that would not have been good for anyone hoping to have a good first day playing experience.

This launch is fail.
So it is a fail because some of your friends took time off from work to play a game they KNEW they may not be able to play today... or tomorrow... or even the next. Sounds like someone's priorities and planning are fail, not the game launch. I'm not in but it sounds like to me it is going just as promised and planned. But thats just me.
