    Phase 3 Deployed

    Last month we expanded our Pre-Launch Guild Program with the implementation of Phase 2: Alignment, where guilds could designate other guilds as allies or adversaries. Now, as Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ moves ever-closer to launch, we are excited to announce that we have initiated the first part of Phase 3: Deployment!
    Phase 3: Deployment will see any guild that meets the pre-designated criteria be transferred into the game for launch.

    My guild page has the green bar saying READY for deployment

    Is yours ready? if not get your folks to pre-order you need 4 or more registered pre-orders

    Yes, it insures that all your guild members can easily and more efficiently join the same server already in said guild. Also, if you have allies or adversaries guilds, and they too designate you as an ally or adversary guild, that guild will more than likely get placed on the same server as your guild. This helps create a better server community.

    Hmm interesting... does this mean we might be getting early access sooner than anticipated? Or are they just giving guild masters time to get any missing pre-orders to qualify for phase 3?

    I think most likely Early Access will be two weeks at the absolute very most, of course I could be wrong and I hope I am, but I can't see it being much longer than that - I wouldn't be surprised if it's even only a week earlier or even less.

    Agreed, I am also guessing about a week, I just wasn't expecting phase 3 to start until shortly before that.

    Yep just noticed this today.

    Got the green on Phase 3. We only have ~ 25 members right now, but almost all have pre-ordered and will be playing at launch.

    There are a lot of moving parts with this pre-launch program, I hope it goes smoothly for BW. It is surely nice to get everyone assigned to the same server and an auto invite into guild right away.

    "More than a weekend but not weeks" is fairly vague. I reallllly hope they give us a solid date by Thanksgiving.

    The Friday before would be a nice early release day, 4 days early, pre-order folks get the weekend to play. They could bring up the download in a Tuesday update and give folks 2-3 days to download the game and patch.

    We'll be giving everyone an update on Early Game Access quite soon.

    Sounds like they are getting all of their ducks lined up - Phase 3 guild deployment, big Beta stress test, Early Access date to be released soon.

    I'm hoping that the NDA drop will follow soon after. I'm so tired of NOT posting to things because there is just no way I could reply without breaking NDA. I'm ready for deep discussions of this game!

    :claps excitedly:

    Here is to hoping Bioware didn't go to The Blizzard School for the meaning of the word soon. Soon would then be, we are going to announce it 10 minutes before the game goes live, then let you play an extra 5 minutes!

    Don't Blizzard have 'Soon' trademarked? There might be possibly litigation if BW were to use it.

    hopefully they'll say early access is like a week or 2 ahead, but we can start downloading the client now. 27gb is alot for me, my internet provider doesn't like it when I download stuff in the middle of the day now, until they get the tower fixed anyway.

    my guess is: "soon" means this weekend
    and early access will be 1 week for the very first buyers.

    Seems the requirment is low. My screen says

    Allies and Adversaries selected (optional)
    Four or more members have pre-ordered
    Guild is Ready for deployment
