Early game access? That's the first I've heard of this. It's not even listed as a benefit of pre-ordering the game via Origin.

@nimzy Yeah it does say that on Origin, it's even on the ad post on their front page.

@Cendres Must have missed it when I got my preorder in. The front page graphic was full of placeholder text too, something must have been going on.

Look the sky. It didn't fall. ^__^ For me a newer build this soon suggests launch is still on track for late 2011, which is very good news.Of course nothing is set in stone and we all want TOR to be the best it can be right? Patience is a good thing when it comes to launches we really should have learned by now. There's no need to get upset over longer beta periods and more tweaking that needs being done. I'd like to name a few mmos that could have used this, but honestly there's just too many.. :S

\o/ I'm excited for this game, that is all.

Sounds good. I'm glad they're being communicative about these things. I'm disappointed that testing weekends aren't on the schedule we expected, but hearing that the last test was just a fraction of what they have planned is encouraging.

in beta since december, NDA is a joke feel free to ask and you will get answers.
Stopped playing for the last 2 days as the server stability makes Peyton Manning the most relyable QB on opening week in NFL.

That was a horrible analogy.

Bioware should just announce TOR a month early and then push it back a month to tip Blizzard's hand to see what they do.

As funny as it would be, shareholders (as well as all the 'top' people in charge) really, really don't like it when you delay a game. When a game gets delayed, most of the time, it's because they literally had no other choice.

Besides, I'm not sure you want to intentionally push back your game launch only a month AFTER a Blizzard product. Regardless of how you feel about WoW, a new expansion or D3 is a huge deal and would only hurt EA in the end.

I agree that the game'll release when the moneyed folks say it should. Heck, they even released FFXIV "on schedule" for the most part, and that's a game that _still_ needs about two years of beta testing before it's acceptable.

For some odd reason, the Force is giving me a sensation that this game will not make it for their projected "Spring 2011" launch window. Perhaps I'm so Force sensitive that I can see into the Past.

Whats a beta?

Go over to the official SWTOR forums and check out the nerd rage over the delay in the beta weekends. Like a thousand voices of small children cried out at once....really looking forward to this community. I think MMOs should all be shut down for like three years to let people regain their sanity.

We all saw the WoW official forums spiral downward over the years, Rifts starting getting nasty prelaunch and got down right brutal post launch and continues this way. The ToR Official forums are a hellhole of angst and hate before the game even has a launch date.

@Ren54 Hi Ren- I thought the reason the Sept beta was changed because they found several issues they had to address for a new build?

Side note: The Space Marines game is a really fun distraction ;)
