People calm down. I doubt anyone is getting 2 or one day.

I'm sure if everything goes to plan everyone will get 5-4 days. Lets just hope their servers don't crap up.

By far the best MMO release I have witnessed. I am watching several people stream swtor, and they are able to play without problems. Good work so far
i can wait to the 15th, but any later than that i will be a little bit pissed, i mean i only got this pre-order so i can get early access, if im not gonna get that why would i even bother pre-ordering in the first place

the way it should work is that if they POTENTIALLY want to give me access the i should POTENTIALLY not have to pay a penny until i have that access, but they already got my money

No he just made that up on the spot.

After all, I bought the game through my account to begin with.

The result is I did not know I had to apply it until November 4 when a friend mentioned it to me. So, I essentially paid $5 (pre-order fee beyond the game purchase itself) for the privilege of being frustrated. I emailed Customer Support regarding this including all pertinent details such as order number date and email address it was registered to and basically got a "sorry we're not going to do anything" reply.

To be blunt, I'm half a step away from demanding a refund on the pre-order fee, and seriously doubt I will ever again pre-order anything from EA/Origin due to their lackluster response to this issue.
The process for entering your code at was in the emails you received when you pre-ordered your game.

As for your "demand' for you pre-order fee, the "fee" is $5 of the total of the game. You are not being charged extra.

I just like to thank you, while I and the rest of my guild and friends wait, for NOT giving the RP-PvP community any support and creating a confusing launch for us.

If some of us get on a server in early launch and then the rest of us who is in later waves get block out of that server. I will remember that and that will colour my longevity in this game.

Sure is fun being a second-class citizen getting ROFLstomped by level 50s a whole TWENTY FOUR HOURS before everybody else does! Oh boy! So glad I forked over $60 of my hard-earned money for that great honor.
Ignore that guy. He has no clue what he is talking about. You should only listen to what official Bioware employees tell you. From what the originally said about this Dec 13th access, they stated that everyone would be getting two days extra. So, I figure you'll get at least 3 days. But I would say there's a decent chance it'll be more than that.
