its about caution, if they would acctually say "you may enter the game at 14th december for EGA". and then something would go wrong with the servers so you acctually wouldnt be able to enter, I can safely presume you wouldnt be so happy since they couldnt keep their promise.

since they atm dont promise anyone access a specific date, they dont have any promises to keep.except that you may recive "up to 5 days early access".

Basically they're letting groups of people in and seeing how the servers handle the load and where people are at level wise. Then they let more people in slowly and do the same thing. So they have no clue when someone who preordered on your date will enter.

They can't win, whichever way they go. Someone will always be upset. We'll all be playing within 7 days... I can't wait, but I will
Actually when you consider the number of servers AND the fact that they create "copies" of the busy areas...that's really not alot of people.

Uhm? It helped them to see how many people their servers could handle? And how huge upgrades they needed?

Totkjal said it but i'll answer anyway..

I meant they didn't have to offer it in the first place. It's not in with the price of the game, people that won't pre order will pay the same as us so we didn't pay any more to get in the game early.

But not only was early access offered but it was increased by 2 days, yet people are whining.

If they had let everyone in and the servers crashed, people would be whining.

Long story short, people will whine no matter what happens.

Unhelpful comment but deal with it. They won't go any faster and it will just lead to people making snarky comments back at the folk complaining.

Yeah but several people killing the same mob isn't the reason for EGA. That's why they have shards, or "copying" as you call it.
EGA is for the servers mainly. They have feelings too, you know.

You are thinking about old school MMORPG designs. SWTOR supports multiple instances for the same area. For example, there could be 10-20+ instances of Hutta to keep players divided up.

No where does he whine about the time. Perhaps you should learn to read. Asking for a notice, in a business world, is not unheard of.

The way they handle it leads to 'false advertising with fraud suspicion'.

But we all know how it is.
