Early Access 'Waves' - Updating Here

Hey everyone, good morning and welcome to the first day of Early Game Access for Star Wars: The Old Republic!

We're granting access based solely on when people's pre-orders were redeemed, and we're going to be granting it in 'waves' - large batches of emails and game entitlements that will go out over the course of today (and tomorrow, and the next day, and so on).

I'll be updating this thread (and this post) as we send out more 'waves' of invites.

So far today, we have sent out two 'waves' of invites; we will be sending more later on, but I cannot be specific on timing. (Why? Because as we invite each wave, we monitor to see how servers are performing and so on. If everything is good, we'll send a 'wave' earlier; we in fact sent 'wave 2' ahead of schedule. So cross your fingers.)

Now, to the question you all have: when will you be invited? Well, I cannot be specific to individuals or even to dates, because again, we have to remain flexible. That said, I can talk a little about the pattern of pre-orders.

At the very beginning of pre-orders, which started on July 21st, we had a massive influx of pre-orders. A huge spike. After that, things settled down. As a result, today especially, you're going to see a fairly narrow band of dates from those admitted to Early Game Access. From tomorrow, it'll spread out to a wider date range.

That's about as specific as we're going to get right now. However, as we send more waves I'll update this thread/post with more information. Thanks for your patience - we know it's been a long road, but you'll be playing before too long.
So in other words...

If im understanding this right...

Pending on the traffic and server stability of the current waves...

Next wave invites will be based on the previous wave stability?

Thank You,

I do not have any sense of entliment or anything but overall it has not been an enjoyable experince. Gamestop Canada recieved no preorder codes until August 4. Initially It was said the order date did not matter. It appears it does, what I was looking forward to was reserving a name I enjoy using oh well.

How specific are the dates going to be today so say for example people who put there code in between the 21st - 26th are getting in today or how is it working?

Thanks for this.
Pretty much just a rephrasing of what has been stated before already, but a very well put one at that
