And yet still no confirmation of whether there will be a Grace period once early access ends or not.

Stephen Reid needs to get off Twitter and answer the 800+ long thread about Bioware not honouring their previously stated grace period which is pretty important considering EA decided to release 5 days before Christmas during the busiest postal and freight time of the year.

@mmogaddict The grace period will be something like a week according to Reid.

They WILL have a grace period. That has been confirmed.

@Grumms It has not been confirm, during a recent gathering of Fansites SR said that a code would now be needed IMMEDIATLY after early access ended.

A (at that time) 400 post thread spang up which SR only post in was to neither confirm nor deny that their would be a grace period.

That thread is now at over 800 posts and 40K+ views and SR has still not confirmed what was said to TOROCAST.

The thread on the SWTOR forums is here : http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=594648

They are aware of it, obviously. Bioware has been very close to the chest on everything and been overly-cautious on releasing information until they have an absolute answer.

They will respond when the reply is definitive, I'm sure.

This is a big deal for BioWare. If this runs smoothly enough, we can expect a really good launch in my opinion.

Best of luck to the team, I'll be there for the login rush to see how it all pans out, but I'll be sticking to staying away until headstart!

Register for the beta, give the game a try and no need for an NDA. That makes sense, huh?

Unless he's in the beta and really wants to talk about it...

They still have not lifted the NDA, and when you get in you have to agree to the NDA.

There is a reason they aren't lifting the N.D.A. still and if you think REALLY HARD about it you will figure it out. I'll leave you to it.

If people don't like the game this will just break the NDA anyway. Which means that they are just keeping the good press bottled up until closer to release.

I am very excited for this beta test. It will be great to get an early look at the game. I am wondering if the NDA will be lifted during or after this test.

@ReadingRambo I'm also wondering if they'll finally lift the NDA after that weekend. It would be interesting to hear people's reactions.

Plus at that point, leaks are going to start pouring out anyway. What can Bioware do, throw people out of the beta so they have to wait a month to play for real?

Meh, there have been SO many leaks in the last months (years) even previously it is not funny. You just gotta know where to look.

Website is down again. Seems to be down for "scheduled maintenance" after making major announcements a lot recently... Why can't they just admit that the website is breaking under heavy traffic. Everybody already knows it.

Really? I thought it was scheduled maintenance. Like they've been doing for a long time now when they are working on the forums.

@Dumac The fact that every recent scheduled maintenance has been announced (or "scheduled", if you like) 24 hours in advance would suggest that it is in fact planned and not the site breaking.

So they are timing maintenance to coincide with the time people will want to check the web site out? The website was down for maintenance when i got my beta mail a week or so ago.

They announced on the forums on tuesday or wednesday that the site would be down this morning. You need to cool off.
