Only thing that really get me down is I use common names for my characters, so I'd like to save the names. Playing wise, I could wait to the 20th, there is no rush.
remember they are adding in new servers each day so just pick a new server and problem solved on names.
and force your friends to move to your server hehe.

Well said, this is definetly the way to handle such a big launch. Couldn't care less if I get in one or five days early for a game I'm likely going to play for years. The important thing is that the launch is smooth. People need to remember the staggered launch is for the benefit of us, the players, not something done out of spite.

FINALLY a voice of reason in a dark world.

Seriously, OP is right on. Been involved with several launches as well. This is nothing all that bad. Relax a little folks. it's gonna be all right.

I'd do that, but I'm in the pre-launch guild problem. My guild of 50 people was already assigned to the Vulkar Highway server. If not for that, it's good advice.

Not sure if we will stay on the server. Right now the guild search for that server is a bit bleak in terms of competition. Imperial guilds outnumber Republic guilds about 5 to 1. Most of the Imperial guilds have 30+ members and there are at least 10 with 50, only 1 Republic guild has more than 30.

We want a server with competition, underdog all the way.

I'm actually sitting here giggling while reading people having psychotic breaks because they didn't get instant gratification. Reading all those posts that the McGeneration is making while foaming at the mouth because they pre-ordered this morning and can't play is making my heart warm... it's like watching world's stupidest people and laughing because you know you would never do that kind of thing.

Personally, I have downloaded all the extra music on the facebook page (they released the rest of it, by the way). And yes, I actually spelled out "downloaded" and "by the way." It's because I'm not a lazy frak and actually take pride in the 22 years of education I have (two more years until I am Doctor Volund Starfire ).

Yes, I am waiting for the game. Yes, I will admit to being a little twitchy while waiting, because it is such a good game. However, I am not going to threaten to quit, threaten to cancel my pre-order, threaten to blow up a dev's dog, or any of that other stuff. Want to know why?

I am mature. The Army taught me that patience is a virtue. Actually, they taught me to hurry up and wait, but that's the same thing, right? I know that I will be able to play the game. I know that the devs are doing what they can. So, why should I make an empty threat like the McGeneration because I feel entitled?

I am no more entitled to play this game than McJohn who is still living in his parent's basement and wants some Twi'lek lovin' right now! I worked hard to earn the money I used to buy the pre-order and worked hard beta testing to make the game better. The devs are working hard to provide me the opportunity (sorry for any McGeneration reading such a large word) to play their game. Even then, it's up to them whether I play or not.

In the end, I'll just sit here at my computer, checking the launcher every fifteen minutes or so, and laugh at all the McMonkeys flinging poo around the boards believing it will get them into beta faster. Wouldn't it be funny, if the devs actually put them back to a later queue every time they posted a McThread?

That would make me laugh.
