FYI to those new to Star Wars, The Old Republic.
Bioware never, and I mean NEVER, comes close to their predicted downtimes. They are always hours, sometimes hours and hours over.
So, yes, it's now past 1pm EST when they said the servers would be up. I haven't even checked it, and I can tell you that if you log on now it will show it's down.
I will try when I get home from work tonight, and I'm hoping that by at least 6pm EST they will have it up and running, but I'm not holding my breath.
