@Ren54 Because once the storylines become common knowledge, there isn't much to keep people interested.

I want this game, but I'm not committing any money to a pre-order or sub until I can try it out. I know I'm not alone in thinking like this.

@ZTZ This game would have to impress the pants off me before I'd even consider using Origin... The service alone is enough to keep me away!

@drunkingamebar You don't need to use Origin to login.

@Clemalum07 Ren won't exactly be winning any Mr Popularity contests around here, but was that really necessary?

And what does sexual preference have to do with game preference anyway?

Because the game is still currently under development and developers usually don't want players to latch onto implementation of mechanics that may or may not be final? I'm guessing that's a big part of the reason at least.

For one weekend? Heck, I would need a week for this presumed 40 gig download anyway.

My friend and I were standing around talking at work today when he got the invite. I quickly checked my phone, no invite :(

Awkward...

@(Unverified) He's a bigger Star Wars fan than I am (I mean, BIG) and he actually offered to just give it to me freely. That right there's a good friend; I was tempted, but naturally couldn't accept.

I guess I'll just swing by his house this weekend and check it out :(

Your friend has probably already made up his mind and is offering you the opportunity to decide.

2 of my friends who knew nothing of the game until I told them to sign up to the beta a few months ago BOTH got invites today, while I've been signed up since day 1 of the original beta announcement and been signed up on SWTOR since Oct. 2009 and I DID NOT GET ONE?!?!

I know it's random and blah, blah so don't start with all that and don't yell at me for whining, it's just depressing that my 2 idiot friends who are clueless got in and me, the 3 year vet of waiting, didn't get one!

ARRRRRGGGGGHHHHH!!!!!!! hehe.

Lucidus is right on. NDAs to hide in development game mechanics is a weak reason at best. It didn't hurt WoW. I remember reading the vanilla beta forums when Thousand Needles was just being implemented. Watching the development is extremely interesting to me.

Developers, like many people, are just scared of feedback when they have no idea what they're doing. Many MMO developers start MMO projects for the money and without a lot of expertise. That's why they hide behind NDAs.

From experience, I would suggest MMOs that have hid behind NDAs until launch have all been very poor products. AoC, TR, WAR, CO, etc are all MMOs that were very poor game at their launch.
