'Up to 7 days...'

Post by Shivan »

Seems like they upped the time people will have early access... just got this email:
SW:TOR wrote: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.
And also some info on the fora about the Beta client:
Multiple posters wrote: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.
Can't wait :)

And Jol/Talmanes... how can we fix the quotation problem? :P

Just received this email :
"
Early Game Access* will begin on December 13th at 7:00AM EST, 2011 and ends on December 19th, 2011 at 10:01PM EST. During this time, we will be emailing invitations to join Early Game Access based on the order in which you redeemed your Pre-Order Code. Pre-load the game client now, so you're ready to play when your Early Game Access invitation arrives. Note that download time can vary and may take awhile.
"

Pretty funky, seems there is a void between early access and the EU release ;)

I really wonder when they're gonna let us play. I don't like all the secrecy surrounding the early game access. Just give me a date already :).

Can't wait though.

@whiteblocks, it's probably an issue in the stylesheet. I'll see if I can fix it. It'll have to fit in between my dungeon defenders superawesome games though 8)

I got a black one with yellow glow during beta. But its a bit useless i think. As far as I know you can only use it once and it looks bad imo.

You can use it multiple times, you can unbind a crystal from your weapon. It just costs additional credits.

It probably will only see much use in early game though. It has +4 endurance if I remember correctly. I assume modifications in later game will have much greater bonusses.

It's mostly an appearance thing, its the only crystal in the game with those colours, the stats themselves are really bad and replaced around level 16.

Today I had a small conference about wind energy, and after lunch I wasnt paying that much attention. Untill someone said: ... and when looking at THE FORCE applied to the blade...... and SWTOR crossed my mind....

Hmmm maybe I am looking forward to this game slightly too much :P

That's coz we fixed it already ;), if you still can't read it on your normal browser, click CTRL-F5. It forces a refresh on the page's images and such, instead of receiving it from cache.

Guild server: The progenitor

A shark god from KOTOR 1:

The Progenitor, possible ancestor to the Selkath species


Manaan, being an oceanic planet, hosted numerous aquatic species in its vast seas. The Selkath were originally aquatic beings, having lived in the oceans in their earlier, prehistoric eras. As the Selkath developed and evolved the ability to live outside of water, various other species prospered in the depths of the Manaan oceans. The firaxan shark became a prominent species, though several other aquatic animals and plants could be found within the waters. The planet was also home to several avian species, flocks of which could usually be seen flying over Ahto City.

The Progenitor was the largest of the firaxan sharks, and may have been the ancestor of sentient life on Manaan. She was a legend to the Selkath, who not only believed her to be the source of the kolto, but perhaps even the origin of their species. As a result, they regarded her with much respect. The Selkath believed that the Progenitor, with her firaxan shark offspring, was also the protector of kolto and guardian of the ecosystem. The dark side energies emitted from the Star Map combined with the presence of kolto may have contributed to the Progenitor's tremendous size and longevity. It was also believed that the Progenitor was semi-sentient.

Only question I have: 'Does our Sharkgod planet have mounted lasers?'

Yeah ok but thats guild info, don't see server info anywhere yet :).

@Shivan, lawl ^^. I don't think there was budget for lasers, but the planet should be infested with ill tempered mutant seabass.

It seems Selkath are slightly different though, can't really say they ring a bell. Why is it your favourite race ?
