all those pre order numbers are wrong because they do not take into account online retailers

They have said multiple times that they're working with a flexible system here. It could go very smoothly, and thus you'd get in fast, or have a very rocky start, thus you'd get in slow. It's not a case of them stuttering for the sake of it, or just to irritate you; they're doing this to make the launch functional. If people can't see the logic in that, I suppose there's nothing I can do to stop them feeling betrayed and hateful.

If you have such a busy life that you're having to make time to play, then just get your stuff done before the 18th or 19th and play when you definitely can!

Does anyone know if these email waves will continue 24/7 or if each 'day' will have invite downtime?

Or in other words, is there any point in going to bed tonight?

11.02.2011 Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ Early Game Access: Ready to patch <<< The date you can Patch or download the game
07.23.2011 Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ Digital Deluxe Edition Pre-Order << The date you entered your code and where you stand date wise for early access

so if my 90 mins per wave theory is correct wave3 should be in about 30 mins for next batch

Thank you.
I can make up numbers too and pretend its correct.

What would be easier is if they said "here's how many we're letting in every wave, and how many waves we're doing a day, etc."


Basically everyone in this thread who's claiming people are whining obviously have no job or obligations where they need to schedule time for this. Must be nice having 7 days to wait around and start playing as soon as you get the code.

I have today and tomorrow. If I'm not in by then I basically don't have any time to play pre-launch.


This is literally the first time any MMO handled early access this way, and it basically sucks. If they're doing "server stability" tests at this point in the game... there are bigger problems.

How they can even tell that at a non-primetime capacity is beyond me. The real testing starts at primetime when everyone has access.
