Mighty nice of you guys. I don't understand why more people didn't just do the digital copy....that's what I did. I know a lot of people wanted the collectors edition but all those little things are not really important to me so I opted for the digital download. I just hope I can get to play at least by tomorrow (I was last minute on the pre-order).

 

It's 3:05 EST, are they done with all the waves today?

 

I ordered a boxed copy because for the same price, I wanted to have the DVD to make future installs quicker. I don't understand why this bothers people.

So let me get this correct, unless I've misinterpreted your post:

 

Anyone whose already added a code, you are paying from the 20th

Anyone who'll actually get their code or physical box....err forget where you've put it for a couple of days and we'll let you have an extra 2 days free.

 

Makes completely no sense whatsoever. Why not do the common sense thing and have all subscriptions commence 30 days following the end of the 2 day grace period and that will encourage everyone to simple enter their code as soon as received and ensure all are being treated equally. :confused:

I guess you could wait till the 22nd at 11:58 to enter your code if you REALLY want to stick t to Bioware to the tune of roughly a dollar. *shrug*

 

Me, I'll enter mine tomorrow when I get my box so I don't have to think about it again.

I don't know this really matter.

 

If the queue times stay as they are (or get worse) no amount of grace time will be worth a dime.

 

 

You put a new EU EN PVE realm online just an hour ago and its already listed as FULL.

 

Put 3-5 new EU EN PVE realms online right now so people can actually play during early access.

hello everyone,

 

while we've worked closely with our retailers in the launch territories to ensure copies of star wars: The old republic are available from our launch date of december 20th, we understand that for those of you who’ve pre-ordered, there may be a concern about getting your copy on time. We’ve heard you want a 'grace period' where you can continue to play without having to enter a final product registration code (aka 'game code').

 

We've been listening, and after doing another deep review of our platform infrastructure, we're taking action. Today, we're announcing a two day grace period for star wars: The old republic customers.

 

This means that everyone who pre-ordered and is in the early game access program has forty-eight hours from launch in which to enter their product registration code, which will be found inside the physical standard and collector's editions of the game; for digital editions of the game from origin.com, the registration code will have been emailed to you after december 16th and will arrive before december 19th at 11:59pm est. After december 22nd 12:01am est, you will be required to have a valid payment method and a product registration code registered to your account to continue to play. We strongly recommend that you register your product code as soon as you are able to do so (rather than waiting until the last minute) to ensure a seamless entry into the game, a smooth experience on the account website and to collect any special gifts and items you may be entitled to based on the version of the game you purchased.

 

We understand that for some, your copy of the game may still arrive on or after december 22nd. Unfortunately, we cannot extend the grace period any further. We suggest you contact your retailer to discuss shipping options, if this is a concern.

 

You may be wondering if your 30 days of game time (included with your purchase of the game) will be affected by the grace period. The answer is no. If you redeem your product registration code during the grace period, and add a valid payment method to your account, you will begin your billing cycle from then, and you will be entitled to 30 days of game time. If you redeem your product registration code before december 20th, your billing cycle will begin on december 20th at 12:01am est (the official launch date and time of the game).

 

We know this has been an issue for some of you, and we apologize for the concerns. We're looking forward to welcoming all of you to the official launch of star wars: The old republic!

 

Thanks,

 

ray and greg

/bow /hug /love! I had to re order a copy of the game from after cancelling my order with wal-mart because lack of supply so I was beyond worried about this 2 extra days may give others also the option of picking up a copy at a local retailer. =D Love that ya'll did this for all of us! The force is now strong with your customers faith in you! =D *On a side note Dec 13 as i put in code late... Let me in O_O! lol... * =)

More the problem is people outside of launch areas cant digitally download the game so they have to import it. They have NO other option. Im getting digital because i can but that is why people in other regions have this problem
