Ash, if it makes you feel any better, there was no interest in a Republic guild either.
PS> GT Heroes has been assigned to Dreshdae Cantina, Blackjack -- it's listed on the guild page on the official site.
I never get a server that's easy to spell. I always regretted Elendilmir in LOTRO. Or was it Elindilmer? Man, I still can't remember it...

fwiw, our GT Heroes page is here: (you need to be logged into the SWTOR site to view it)
http://www.swtor.com/guilds/276092/gaming-trend-heroes
*Things are "frozen" at this point so I can't edit what's on the page, people can't apply etc., which is understandable.

It seems like web support for guilds is to be yanked in early January in favor, perhaps, of a more "in-game" based system. Something like that.

Buddy of mine registered his code the day the game was available for purchase, he was in the beta.  He has been invited to start playing on the 13th; I registered my code 3 days after his.

I think your buddy may be blowing smoke up your ass. It's *likely* he'll be in on the 13th, but no one has been invited to anything yet.

Yup, that will be my favorite kind of server choice as well - Too bad you guys are over the ocean - could have been fun to join up with you!

Hmm, I might actually make a character there as well, just for kicks. Seemed to work fine in the beta, playing on US servers

btw, got my notice and... I got to go to work.  tear It reads like:

Your Wait Is Over
The moment we've all been waiting for is finally here. Early Game Access* has started, and you can now begin your adventure. To start playing, click on the button below and follow the steps outlined on the page. Welcome to your Star Wars™ saga.
I'll try to at least get started on final updating before I head out.

*One tip -- the "player agreement" in the beginning has THREE checkboxes (Privacy Policy, Terms of Service and Lucasfilm Ltd. Privacy Policy), so scroll all the way down through the wall of text to see all three of those.
============================

Game Director Ohlen posted about What's Next...
http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?p=287#edit287
Quote from: James Ohlen
Welcome to Star Wars™: The Old Republic™. It’s been many years in the making and the team is very proud of what we’ve achieved. Since we’re an online game we are going to continue building on the game for years to come. You can count on us to diligently expand the game and service to surprise and delight you. We’re going to not only respond to your feedback, but also hopefully exceed your expectations on how Star Wars: The Old Republic will evolve over time.

Many of you helped make the game what it is today by participating in our testing programs. You’ve watched the game grow over the past year and have been very vocal about things you’d like to see in the game in the future.

A team is never finished building a massively multiplayer game, so we’d like to take this opportunity to reveal a little information on what the team is working on for patches coming in the near future. Our priorities have been, and will continue to be, based off of the feedback we receive from our players.

    • New ContentWe will be adding new content to the galaxy on an ongoing basis. These worlds will include Operations, Flashpoints and solo content.

    • Guild Functionality – Guilds are important to the long term health of any MMORPG. We have a huge list of guild centric features. This will be an ongoing effort that will probably never end. Guild banks are the first thing we’ll be delivering in our plans for increased guild functionality. Eventually we even want to deliver on the promise of the long hinted at “Guild Capital Ships”.

    • UI customization – You like choice. We hear you! SWTOR is all about choice. Being able to choose how you interact with an online game is something we feel is very important. We are going to be giving more control over the UI as an ongoing effort. This is a very big priority for us.

    • PvP – We have an entire team dedicated to adding content and features to player vs. player. We have some of the most experienced PvP developers in the world on this team. So far very few people have seen, or know much about the stunning Open World PVP on Ilum; when you get to the high levels prepare to be blown away! In addition to that high level PVP content, expect new Warzones and new PvP features on a regular basis.

    • Space Combat – We will continue to add missions to the space game. We also have a special project going on right now that will expand space gameplay in a significant way... for now the details will have to remain under wraps.

    • Legacy System – The ability to select a surname for your character is just the start of something much bigger. Soon, the Legacy experience and levels you earn will grant your characters access to powers, objects and other cool benefits.

    • And more – We have an entire team of developers working on future content. Right now we are focused on nothing else but Star Wars: The Old Republic, so expect new and cool things.

It is fair to say that we’re just as excited as you are about the launch of Star Wars: The Old Republic. Not only are we launching one of the largest and most impressive games ever created [well, maybe "a bag of chips"  smirk -bj ], but we’re also excited about the prospect of continuing to work on the game so that you, the fans, will always have something heroic and amazing to enjoy. Thanks for playing.

James Ohlen

Slow down , Cheeba! Leave some rebel scum for the rest of us ;-)

Btw - Does anyone know if your credit card gets charged now, or on the 20th? I think the credit card I used to pre-order with is the one I have cancelled you see, and thats a bit annoying.

If it was with Origin, you have to contact Origin support about it (http://www.swtor.com/preorder/faq#q209657).

If it's with Amazon or another online retailer, I'd contact their support and ask about it. You should be able to switch to another form of payment, but presumably they'd need to make that switch on their end.

*I checked my Amazon receipt from when I first pre-ordered CE, and it really doesn't indicate when the actual charge will take place. I assume whatever date it actually leaves Amazon's hands and heads towards my grubby Smuggler mitts.  icon_smile With a boxed version, I assume it's charged the day it ships; with a digital pre-order, I assume Dec. 20.

Don't worry.  I didn't have permissions to do anything yet.  It just detected that I was the first person to log in from the guild and asked if I wanted to get it created on the server.  You are still the all-powerful master.

For those who are getting in early, have fun! I pre-ordered on Nov 27th, but I can't even pre-download the game. I logged into Origin this morning to start the download, but no dice. Guess I didn't pre-order 'early enough' to warrant early game access. EA with Origin is being so byzantine about this. Ugh! Guess I'll be there when the game actually launches and they 'deem' my pre-order as worthy of a game download maybe an hour before midnight on the 20th.  icon_mad

Well, it has *always* been up to 5 days before release, based on how early you pre-ordered - They have been pretty upfront about that. So, its now 7 days before launch, so I'm guessing its just jealousy of those who are already in?

Because I feel your wrath, brother - I have the same agony ;-)

A dev tracker update indicated that most of today's "waves" are the glut of folks who pre-ordered immediately after the announcement. My reading is the extra couple days gave them some more elbow room to let in most of that glut, and then still gradually let the rest in over the originally intended 5 days or so.

It's not to make the people who get in the last 5 days somehow feel bad or poorly treated. Probably if they'd stuck with the original 5 day period, they'd be having a lot of wait ques and server overload issues.

For my part, I just ordered CE as an impulsive thing and no not gonna sell it on EBay for $300.  icon_smile The cosmetic perks and the Darth statue looked fun. I knew full well with my work sked I wasn't going to be able to put in much time during early access.

*They've clarified that once you get your actual game code (either in the shipped box or by e-mail from Origin for digital purchases), and apply that, you should get whatever special items you're supposed to via in-game e-mail (attachments). The pre-order code doesn't give any of that.

My character is Westia on Canderous. (I know, I always have to play a chick. But it's femshep!)

You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

*They've clarified that once you get your actual game code (either in the shipped box or by e-mail from Origin for digital purchases), and apply that, you should get whatever special items you're supposed to via in-game e-mail (attachments). The pre-order code doesn't give any of that.

It gives me my yellow crystal, so that item seems to work.  Can't use it until level 7, though.

For those who are getting in early, have fun! I pre-ordered on Nov 27th, but I can't even pre-download the game. I logged into Origin this morning to start the download, but no dice. Guess I didn't pre-order 'early enough' to warrant early game access. EA with Origin is being so byzantine about this. Ugh! Guess I'll be there when the game actually launches and they 'deem' my pre-order as worthy of a game download maybe an hour before midnight on the 20th.  icon_mad

The game client doesn't come from Origin even if you ordered from there.  They sent emails last week to everyone who pre-ordered, and that email had a link to the download.

It sounds like you didn't register your pre-order code!  You have to create an account on the swtor.com site, if you haven't already.  Then you need to redeem your pre-order code.  Your pre-order code *does* come from Origin and it should be displayed in the game info.  Once you redeem the pre-order code you should be able to download the client from your swtor.com account page.

Also, the order in which pre-order codes were redeemed is the order that they are letting people into the early release.

LOL!  I got an email today from Blizzard offering me 7 days free to come back to WoW.  Made me chuckle.

Just to clarify. I just want to pre-load the game. I know I won't be let in to actually play it until much later this week or even until the 20th. I just thought since I pre-ordered I could be able to at least pre-download.

Maybe it's just a strange hiccup. I know they sent me a preload link right after I preordered. Ill try clicking on that later tonight.

Make sure you applied that pre-order code to your SWTOR account (assuming you have set one up). I believe (you guys know how often I'm wrong!  icon_redface) you have to do that even if you just want to "preload." If you've already done that, I got nothin'.  icon_smile

Pre-load is the act of installing and downloading the Game Client before the Game’s official launch. Pre-loading the Game does not grant you access to the Game.

Customers who redeem their Pre-Order Code or Product Registration Code for Star Wars: The Old Republic prior to launch will be able to pre-load the Game Client before launch. To access the game at launch, you must redeem your Product Registration Code at the Code Redemption Center.

You must have the Game Client installed on your computer in order to play. If you want to have the Game downloaded in time for Early Game Access, be sure to redeem your Pre-Order Code now so that you can start pre-loading the Game right away! Learn more about ways to prepare for Early Game Access here.

For Origin customers, they have a separate SWTOR launch help page set up:
https://helporigin.secure.force.com/CpHomePage?showhome=true&appcontext=browser

This one there might be more helpful actually, search wise:
https://helporigin.secure.force.com/CpKnowledgePage?appcontext=browser&pagecontext=CpHomePage&product=Star_Wars_The_Old_Republic

*If you lost your pre-order code or believe you didn't receive it as you should've, you'll want to contact Origin about it directly, afik. Supposedly, in some situations, they can re-send it.

You should definitely be able to preload.

Yeah I got it through Origin and am not playing/didn't download from Origin.

It was weird. I checked at 7am and was able to play. For quite some time there were only about 30 people on Korriban, just the 1 shard. When I left Korriban there were maybe 80 people. So they are definitely light on people right now. I'm sure that'll change once work lets out.

But on a beta weekend I remember there being about 180 people on each Korriban shard and there were about 7-8 shards.

Known-issues thread updated (not too bad so far, all things considered):

This list of known issues was last updated on: December 13th, 2011

        For the Sith Warrior mission "A New Master", defeating Teeno first will prevent players from speaking to Phyne to progress as intended.

        Workaround: Sometimes, players can leave the mission phase and enter again, which may allow for Phyne to be selected. If she is not, players will need to abandon the mission and complete the fight again, this time ensuring Teeno is not defeated first.

        For the Bounty Hunter mission "A Dangerous Action", female Bounty Hunters may be unable to progress when attempting the step: "Speak With Juda."

        When using the Master Looter grouping feature, players currently cannot assign loot to other people in the group (normal or Operations groups) when that loot is from a chest and will receive the message: "Access denied."

        When grouped with another character of your same class and while inside a Class Phase, looting may request players to roll for loot rather than giving it to the player automatically. This happens most often when group members are not within the proper proximity to be eligible for the items. Note that the window may require more than one roll attempt, but the appropriate player will receive the loot after about 30 seconds.
Teeno! Don't die yet!  icon_razz

Hey BJ, what server are y'all playing on?  I played beta and enjoyed playing a smuggler.  My brother and I and a few others are playing Republic.  I'm still at work, but hope I get my code by the time I get home...?
