Almost every single glitch or issue that I reported in the previous beta, has been fixed. People have also already gotten to level 12, in only 4 hours. You can hit max level in a week, at this rate.


I was confident this game would have a smooth launch during the last beta, but now I am more convinced. I am 100% secure in pre-ordering this.

If you're going to play this game, and have an ATI/AMD video card, update the drivers. The current 11.9 (?) fix all the graphical issues that 11.8 has. So, update the drivers when you install the game. Just FYI.

Daniel Erickson explains that #SWTOR will ship with 15 flashpoints at launch!
No confirmation of how many are max level, and how many are faction locked to either only Republic or only Empire
Also unconfirmed how many, if any, are 'raid' instances. Or of those are considered different from the 15.
By comparison, Rift had 10 + 2 raids at launch, and WoW had 14 + 4 raids(I think)

Also, it is viable to level up 100% via PvP, or via instances (once you hit 10 or so and can access the first FP)

Depending on when you pre-ordered and registered your code, you can get early access when the game is released. Up to 5 days in advance. Helps relieve the stress on the servers and keep 5 million people from going after 1 quest mob.

Confirmed by a BioWare rep

...you will not be required to install the Origin software in order to download, patch, or play the game (even during Early Game Access). You'll do that through our own site and launcher.
Just for anyone who is hopping on the Origin hate bandwagon

So, EVERYONE who has signed up to opt-in for beta testing will be in an upcoming beta weekend. We ALL got that email. That will be the biggest stress test. Time TBD
