so i got my game through origin...i got an email today with a product key, does putting that one in nullify my chances of early game access?

Mine does not have the 3 separate items but I think the early access and download were combined IF I am reading this right:

12.12.2011 Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ Early Game Access: Ready to patch
12.12.2011 Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ Collector's Edition Pre-Order


Also just to know this would of been placed on 11.30.2011 but Best Buy screwed me over on getting my code in a timely manner...damn them
I SPENT $161 ON THIS GAME

No, you don't have Early Game Access yet...all you have is the ability to download the game. When it says "Ready to play", then you can log in

Nope, that is to keep playing after Dec 22

12.13.2011 Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ Early Game Access: Ready to play
11.02.2011 Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ Early Game Access: Ready to patch
07.21.2011 Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ Digital Standard Edition Pre-Order
where the bottom line indicates the date you redeemed your pre-order, the middle line is on everyone's account allowing them to patch the game, and the top line means you have been granted Early Game Access.

Oh, and there is no additional code needed to play in the Early Game Access period. You will, though, need it to play after Dec 22.
It looks as if I've been flagged to play; not sure where I heard that you would need the extra emailed code before the release, but if it's a mistake, it's a happy one!

Just tried logging in, and it looks like it worked as you said. Thank you for pointing out my oversight, haha xD
