I think they a couching their words. It probably means they plan to wipe the forums.

No, the login server is offline.

All it means is if you installed the testing client any time after Nov 25th you should be fine to just patch your install for launch.

This is in response to the email many people got telling them to uninstall prior to launch.

If you already uninstalled the game you're out of luck until headstart/launch day gets here.

Which of course includes me, having done what the email instructed me to do. *sigh*

At least the beta download went incredibly fast for the amount of data delivered. I was shocked by how quickly all those GB's downloaded and installed.

The nov 25 reference was to the latest beta build. If you had the latest beta build all you had to do was patch and play the last (two) betas.

The beta client will still need to be deleted as it is not compatible with the live build per recent dev post.

Additional RUMOR.
Some folks stating emails from distributors saying that they will be sending boxes out so you recieve product a couple days before launch, whether these are true or not have not been confirmed or denied by the devs.

Amazon, for one is promising release day delivery. Other companies' mileage may vary. ;)

@Graill440 All yellow posts on the forum, as well as the FAQ, still state that you have the actual launch client if you participated in the Nov 25 weekend. Only those people who had a beta client from before that date need to reinstall.

I love my current MMO to death, I can't help but feel like I am plotting an elaborate affair and secret rendezvous with SWToR.

@(Unverified) I know what you mean SWTOR is like that super hot slightly crazy chick that keeps calling you to tell you how lonely she is...you know your going to wake up in her bed and you know you're going to hate yourself for betraying your girl but there just isn't much you can do to stop it.

Sure, the idiot isn't the guy trying to make himself look like some sort of god's gift to women on the internet, the idiot is the guy who doubts it.

Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiight........

I dunno about you guys, but the client is available for DL at http://www.swtor.com/tester

Obviously, if you didn't check the box to sign up for beta testing, you might not see this page.

You can D/L the installer but you can't D/L the game as the login server is offline.

Thanks for the forum links!

In short - if you have file "assets_swtor_main" in your StarWars installation folder - you already have "release client".

Also client has to have size around 19Gb - if it's much more then it's bloated beta client and you might want to delete and re-download it to save about 10Gb.

No need to delete.

Simply look in your assets folder. You'll see red, blue or green assets. Delete all of those.

The only assets you should have are swtor_ . The rest are simply extra's because Bioware was lazy and their launcher didnt delete its older files like it should have.

Yeah....I got the same email. But I thought I remember reading somewhere that we should KEEP the beta installed and update it during early access. Justin, can you clarify this?
