Or something similar, considering they're going by pre-order redemption dates.
The whole point of them not saying something like this is so that when something, god forbid, goes wrong, they won't have people like you crawling up their rear end with BS quotes about the "promised range of dates" that were supposed to be granted early access today. It will happen man, just chillax

Pre order is a pre order, i'm shocked the company is so mis-leading in their product.

If I don't get in the next day or so, i'm cancelling because if this is anything to go by the companies behaviour then I for sure will not be playing the game.
Actually, I have to disagree and do something I really am not used to doing to devs and game companies. Give them praise for their feedback.

Early Access is a side benefit of what they are really doing, which is a rolling start to help offset the biggest bane of any newly released MMO and that is getting overwhelmed.

Other MMO's that have not learned from this and have as much anticipation as TOR has, are basically setting themselves up to create their very own Denial of Service attack, hehe.

Be thankful that when you do get in, it will likely be a much more stable environment than any of the last several big MMO's that hit the scene.

On another note, I'm personally on a mission to score as many Brown Side points as I can to potentially get in earlier. *big grin*

The only possible issue i can have with this process is the fact this thread isnt made for the devs only, so we could see the REAL time at which waves take place and not have to wade through miles of rants, complaints and (in some cases) rather silly comments....

It's a rip off by their advertisting.

I wouldn't have pre ordered if I am only going to get one day early access... They know this and that's why they didnt make it public knowledge. So they can rip people off and get the world to preorder


Completely disgusting , I am going to take this further I think.

For Christ's sake, just give people a estimated date range. Hell, I'd at least like to know what the scheduled rate of invites was projected to be. If I pre-ordered in the first 10 days do have a projected chance of getting in today or only 1st day redeemers?

Seriously, I don't need an exact time. People would like to know if they are, in fact, wasting their day looking for an invite that you suspect will not come today. It's like you're being ***** about this for the sake of being *****. What's the worst that can happen. You give your estimate and exceed it? People playing now (including my wife) are talking about how empty the servers are. Why are the testing the server load now? That's what the weekends were for.

What are you going to do on launch when 300K people show up at once? You don't really think all your subscriptions are gonna be pre-orders, do you?
