Looks like the retail client is out. You can either patch up your client if you were in the beta AFTER November 25th, otherwise, nuke it and run the installer from the tester page again.

Bioware has assigned guilds to various servers.  Both guilds have been assigned to the PvE East server Mind Trick.  Early access begins tomorrow, phased in based on when you redeemed your preorder.  The official launch is next Tuesday.  Hope to see some of you online soon!

If you haven't already pre-loaded your game, you can download the client from the official website and patch it in advance.

Pre loading the client now since I got confirmation that my early start begins today.  Ill probably start as an Imperial Agent with our Imperial Guild, but I may switch over to Republic since being the bad guys tends to not sit well with me, but we will see.  I did have to cancel my CE pre order..cause I just cant afford it this month (sad panda) but ill be picking up a regular edition.

Anyway, ingame characters are as follows.

Arliman

Sith:

See, that's the beauty of this game though.  If you play the game, you'll start to see that the Republic is not the infallible beacon of light that the movies would make it out to be.  There are shades of grey through both the Empire and the Republic, which is only appropriate because human beings are complex creatures... and it gives the game a lot of depth.  You can play as a Dark Jedi if you choose to in this game, or in my character's case, a light-oriented Sith.  I know it sounds bizarre, but as an example for the latter, a light-oriented Sith is kind of like being a victim of circumstance.  You were born in the Empire and have allegiance to it, but rather than being a wicked cartoon villain, you aim to further the Empire's goals and not mindlessly murder and/or torture everything you see.  I also noticed that playing against your standard alignment however, makes the game a little harder.  Your alignment can affect what equipment you can use, and all the light sabers worth a damn that drop have been dark side.  The game has a modification system though, so I can get around that.

At any rate, my character is Vertus.  I ended up going Cybertech with my craft.  I'm loving the shit out of this game.

Interesting way to put it Parn, and I was wondering about that.  I messed with Imperial Agent a bit but I think Bounty Hunter may fit me better..I seem to enjoy being a tank more than straight up dps or heals.  Also messing with Trooper, which im liking alot.  Only thing so far that kinda bugs me about the game is the difference between body 2 and body 3...its like..reasonable body size with a slightly large head to..OMG ITS THE HULK!  Body type 4 is just ridiculous.

Body type 4 is hilarious.  Also made it to Nar Shadaa this evening.  Once you hit the third planet, it becomes very easy to out level the content, and there are basically enough quests to make you out level the next planet if you were to attempt to do them all.  I haven't even touched PvP or the space quests yet.

Well I was gonna play tonight..but right now its over an hour wait...holy crap...and its not like making new servers will help much..if most of those people are on the server cause their guilds were assigned there...oops?  Still love the game otherwise.

Well, remember its still people running on pre-orders - and who knows how many of those people will actually buy the retail. Also they let in a ton of people yesterday, nowhere near as tapered as the first 2 days, so it may be they have population caps in place till people spread out more. I don't know how crowded it was yesterday but every morning i've been on I've had zero queues and there's been less than 100 people on Coruscant.

Wow, looks like one of the diehards from my old FFXIV HNMLS just hit 50 last night in TOR - and they're bragging about it on the forums. Unlike every other MMO, the population is like "wow, you're a retard, its not even launch day and you've totally skipped the whole point of the game." God I love this community. 6 hours of sleep since early access started, cap in 3 days and nothing savored - GG.

ok, these server queues are giving me not so pleasant flashbacks of Aion's launch. I really hope they sort this out. 1hr+ queues are for the birds.

I am away for the holidays until the 26th.  Anyone who wants to join the Empire guild should ask in-game to Spacestripe.  Just tell him you're from RPGFan and you'll be golden.

I'm level 5, and am not sure what the fuss is about.  I'm gonna keep going because I think I may have picked a boring story class (Republic Consular), but I was expecting tight, instanced corridors with only a handful of players on your "channel."  Instead, it's like recess, with dozens of people crowded around quest NPC's, having these deep one-on-one conversations that I just can't take seriously.

It's just weird so far.  I told myself that I'll play this game for a few days every time my anima/leves run out in FF14, but I'm liking everything in FF14 better so far.  Unfair to say this early, but I said it anyway.

ahaha

you played to level five and think ffxiv is better

a game so content barren that free realms dwarfs it

a subscription game so embarassingly bad that square enix kept it free for over a year and still bled subscribers

lmfao

have fun killing marmots
