For anyone that has not already found out, early access begins December 15th, 2011, the day SWG dies. How convenient.
The order in which you receive early access depends on when you registered your preorder code.
I registered in late October, so I don't expect to join you guys until December 17th, though that is just a guess. Bottom line, for most of us, there are hardly 40 days left 'till TOR, and I hope to see you there.
