    My mate ordered the same time but didn't realize he had to enter his pre-order code for a few months...  I hardly ever bring this up at every single opportunity

    I'm with your friend here image

    TBH I think it will only be one or two days at most before everyone is in.  They said that there are fewer pre-orders then there were players in the beta weekend and that was only staggered over 2 days so you should be in pretty soon.

    Im with you on this:

     

    People who used to play in Big WoW Server did have queues but once fixed, the same large of players would log in , in rush hours, as usually and with no problems. Thats how all games go.

     

    So yeah . 15minutes to 1hour(why so long) early access rows but DAYS? it wont happen.

    I'd advise the Nigerian maffia to send you an email about SW:TOR. "Click this link to start playing SWTOR now"

    Exactly, so I don't expect start playing from 12..

    Just think how long it's going to take their mail server to send out all those messages :D

    Pray they aren't using outlook

    just a quick question people :

    -)when you havent received the early acces e-mail, the launcher is going to give u :

    "there is no active subscription on this account , Activate your accout here "    yes or no?

     

    -)for ppl having to play right now , do we have to download more ?

    From Twitter:

     

    Emails have not yet been sent. We will notify you when the first batch goes out!

     

    Early Game Access emails will be going out in multiple waves throughout the day. You will be emailed the same day your access starts.

    Regrettably I am in the same boat. So while  I should be playing in approximately 55 mins...I'll go make toast instead. *sigh*

    I wouldn't hold my breath, as the digital download sites are listing the game as unreleased and until you pay for the game you won't be getting in. Plus they have always stated UP TO 5 DAYS. I don't think that they will allow people in today and then locked them out for 2 days till the game is "officially" released.

    What are you talking about?

    1) The game is downloadable from swtor.com as soon as you've registered your early game access code there

    2) An e-mail was sent to all who had registered their early game access codes that the early access starts 13. December 12.00 GMT

    Dont forget folks that are playing this game. They did say that you can also check your launcher. If the play button is active you are good to go. They said that emails may come well after you are flagged for EGA. So just one more thing for you to keep doing, closing and starting your launcher and logging in every 5-10 min lmao.

  • neorandomneorandom bev hills, CAMember Posts: 1,681

    theres no need to check your launcer yet, 1 hour 21 minutes until they flip the switches to ON

  • DignaDigna City, CTMember Posts: 1,994 Uncommon

    They 'flip the switch' at 7AM est. approx 35 minutes.

    I'm fairly positive most people who pre-ordered will be in within 24-48 hours of release. They'll want to keep their initial wave of customers happy. Promising false head-starts wouldn't be a good way to go about it.

    Chin up dude. Positive thinking. Besides, you'll be laughing at this in a few years [or months] when you're bored with TOR and are thinking back to that day when you were hunced over your PC. Spamming F5 on your Gmail account ;)

    gmail automatically updates each time you get a new email. You could bring up gmail in a tab, do something elsein another tab. When you get a new email you'll see a (1) so it'll look ilke this.
