Bioware, please call Trion for tips on how to do an early release properly. What a complete failure."

Saw that quoted by someone and didn't feel like searching the pages to do the same properly. Rift had a good early release? LMAO! They're early access was likely the inspiration for Bioware letting people in a group at a time. Trion opened the flood gates and had 5+ hour server ques, lag from hell and a bunch of people getting booted from servers left right and center. It was unplayable until they scrambled up some emergency servers. They were utterly unprepared for the tumult that wrecked their previous expectations. RIFT's early access was painful and I was one of the lucky ones who waited for a new server rather than brave the 5-6k+ sever lines.

SWTOR is a hundred times better than RIFT, and that's my opinion as a fan of RIFT, and the way they're handling early access is phenomenal and extremely responsible. It's also a hell of a lot more effort and preparation than Trion put in. Here's hoping the people in game don't have reason to complain as much as some of the people on these forums.

I hope i get invited today or atleast tommorow or else i'm gonna cancel my Pre-Order and get my 10 back since i could use that Money to purchase the Game instead of making sure it's reserved and still having to pay the full Price like everyone else that didn't Pre-Order. Thought it was worth Pre-Ordering because of the early Access but if that's not the case it isn't.
You sound like you were sheltered and spoiled as a child. Fing Grow up and you will not cancel, we all know it.

I think it would be a nice idea to give some sort of information where everyone stands.

like, how many players are in front of you in line?
how many players are invited per wave?
in which wave will someone be?

it would help to ease the waiting time and give some comfort.

If they stop invites till tommorow 12h later or something i will be really pissed ! This is the most crucial time for them. No one cares about 20th. Its now !

Can someone from EU explain to me how the heck they preordered the game in summer?? I for myself am quite sure that the pre-order was first available on October.

What's pissing some of us off is that we should have been in the first waves as we ordered on 21st, but due to a ****-up/miscommunication we didn't get our EGA codes until several days later.

Bioware initially said that the delay wouldn't matter, but it has.
