Early Access 'Waves' - Updating Here

This is only My Opinion only

BW allowed the first two waves in game almost an hour apart. It has been over an hour and the third wave has not yet been announced on Twitter. I suspect BW is crunching numbers and may decide to either start letting more players in or may open the flood gates and let a mass of people in.

They want to see how fast some people are getting out of the start areas, server stability and so on before they do anything else.

Question:

In the pre-order email I received, I quote the following:

Early Game Access will begin on December 13th at 7:00AM EST, 2011 and ends on December 19th, 2011 at 10:01PM EST

By them saying it will "end" on the 19th @ 10pm, coupled with the idea that the game is supposed to be launching on the 20th (presumably @ 12am / midnight?)

Doesn't that mean the servers will come down for 2 hours anyways, and all of this early entry staggering is kind of a moot point?

Do they plan on staggering the whole of their playerbase come the 20th over a week too? That's not going to fly...

Any insight here?

Early Game Access
Color Stone (Virtual Item)
Download Game Client


You can now download the game client and patch the game. Watch for an email invitation from The Old Republic team to begin your Early Access."

You'll eventually recieve and e-mail saying that you have early access. Subscriptions won't be set up until actual game release, as we don't need them during the free early access.
Thank you. That explains a lot ^-^

So, I'd just like to clarify (everyone's going to get pissed at me for asking) but if I pre-ordered on the first day, there is a strong possibility that I will be getting in today? I've read and re-read all the posts, but I'm just trying to make sure so that I can plan my day accordingly. Hulu, here I come.
