Star Wars The Old Republic

No wipes for the last build. Can also patch to live on launch day, so don't uninstall.

(To clarify: Wipes will happen before live, just not until then)

Not real savvy with the MMO stuff. So does this mean that we can use our beta guys until the 20th, and then they'll be wiped? And we can keep the beta installed to save time on release day, and it'll just add whatever missing components it needs from the disc?

1) The beta guys can be used until the head start begins, so they will be wiped at the end of the beta periods (This is likely the last beta weekend, but maybe not)

2) If you have the game installed now, you don't need to reinstall the client, but you may need to patch it on release day.

Early Game Access* for Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ is only a few days away! Starting December 13, 2011, The Old Republic will begin emailing invitations to start your Early Game Access. Invitations will be sent throughout the Early Game Access period offering rolling access to the game in the order in which you redeemed your Pre-Order Code, so be sure to check your email inbox!

To ensure that players can get into the game as quickly as possible when their Early Game Access begins, we are now allowing everyone who has redeemed a Pre-Order Code at our Code Redemption Center to pre-load the game to their computer.

In order to download the game client before Early Game Access begins, you need have already logged into your account and redeemed your Pre-Order Code. Once you have done this, you can download the game client by clicking on “My Account” in the upper-right of the window and then click “Pre-Order.” On your Pre-Order page, click the large button that says “Download Game Client” to begin download of the game!

If you participated in our recent Beta Testing Weekend between November 25th and 28th and still have the game client installed, you will be able to patch this client instead of re-installing by simply launching your client, logging in and allowing the download to complete. If you did not participate in the November 25th – 28th Beta Weekend, first uninstall the Game Testing Client and then re-install to ensure your game client will function correctly during Early Game Access.

Customers who redeem their Pre-Order Code at the Code Redemption Center prior to launch will be able to pre-load the Star Wars: The Old Republic Game Client before the official Game launch. Pre-loading the Game does not grant you access to the Game. Pre-Ordering the Game only allows you access to the Early Game Access period and your Color Crystal. Early Game Access may be up to 7 days. The length of your Early Game Access depends on the date and order in which you redeemed your Pre-Order Code. In order to continue playing the Game after the Early Game Access period, you must redeem your official Game Product Registration Code at the Code Redemption Center.

me and Kurb are part of a guild already which they will be selecting a server for us.

Its a pvp guild so if you're interested when we finally find out what server it is we can tell you and then invite you to the guild.

sound good?

I'm pretty torn between pvp or pve. I played wow for years on a pvp server and had some of the most fun I've ever had gaming but eventually transferred to pve to play with a buddy. Going to pve was like playing a completely different game, I loved being able to go out and quest unmolested. But at the same time the best moments in the game came from random open-world pvp, as well as some of the most frustrating moments. It's like pve servers are a toned down version of the game but sometimes that's a good thing.
