    I expect 2-3 million people at release. If there are close to 900k people preordering in the US not counting download, you can close to double that for EU and maybe even triple it counting downloads.

    They already have 1 million box sales in the US, alone. This doesn't count any online/digital sales. I would bet that it will easily eclipse 3 million. The momentum for the game is really picking up.

    They'll probably start advertising 2 or 3 weeks before launch, 2 is more likely though.

    500k?

    I suppose it will be 2 Mios Presales already and many more will come with the beta. If the tests are good and the feedback from players is good, i suspect the number still rising to be close to 3 millions.

    Kind of depends on how they handle the power levers.

    How long to max level for power levelers? 5 days? A week?

    In RIFT these people rushed to max level and then rampaged on the Forums about no End Game.

    You would hope Bioware watched that and learned.

    2-3 million is my guess... i hope SWOTR does well, for 2 reasons:

    1. Since i quit wow i want a good mmo to play.

    2. if it does well, i hope blizzard will feel the pressure of competition and reveal project titan, WOW is a great game i just got bored of the same thing for 4 years.

    The power levelers will be the extreme minority in SWTOR. Their experience will have little to no impact whatsoever. This game is designed around story arcs, the people that skip them to get to max level and then complain will be appropriately flamed like no one has been flamed before.

    On topic, it will launch with 3 million + and probably bring another million or two within the first 3 months, while losing 500k-1million people that wanted a different game than what Bioware has been promising the entire time.

    So, I'm going with 3-4million 3 months in.

    I mean, it's going to launch with approximately 3 million with next to no serious advertising as of yet.
