@laelgon

I'm wondering that myself. Rift had huge numbers in open beta just before launch. On launch day they opened another 30 servers and......nothing happened. TOR should do better post EGA, but I'm not expecting hundreds of thousands of more players immediately. Maybe gradually.....

@laelgon You're wrong. The vast majority of people do not pre-order games. More will with TOR than normal because they gave the promise of early access, but the point remains valid. You're going to see a huge influx of people tonight, then even more after Christmas.

After playing this game for a week almost nonstop except when I had to go to work, I still can't believe how fun this game is. I wouldn't have said anything like this before, but I will now. This game will rival or even beat WoW once people start bringing their family and friends over. I'm calling it now. Only time will tell though.

@(Unverified) Agreed. Especially these days, people are a lot more conservative with their cash, so rather than pre-ordering, the actual majority will be waiting in the eves, looking through reviews and videos of the actual post-release game before buying... or simply holding off for the 'winter holiday'.

I suppose I don't care too much since I get off at ten and then hang with my wife for a few before she trots off to bed. I usually don't get going until 12 anyway. But I do see a lot of unsuspecting ppl trying to log in as soon as they get home and feeling a little sad.

Hey, Bioware. Make with the server transfers for these new servers. I don't want to always have to log in an hour early just to play.

@dudemanjac

I'm wondering if maybe they've set the current population cap on servers lower than it needs to be to create queues and ensure that the population spreads out evenly across the servers, and they intend to raise the cap later to get rid of the queues once things settle down.

@Eamil Pleas let that be true, because I highly doubt my request will be fulfilled.

@Eamil That actually does make a lot of sense. It would be pretty smart of them.

I'm jonesing', man I'm jonesin'

I just got to Alderaan after finishing all the fun and fairly challenging 4 man heroic quests on Tatooine. Just as the servers went down we had just won an epic Voidstar match and I was staring at the post game stat screen.

Moar. Moar.

This launch is going even worse than I expected. Instead of queues, they actually shut the entire game down.
