If you ordered digital through origin, you will get your retail key starting the 16th.
If you ordered digital through anywhere else, they should tell you when you get your retail key.
If you ordered a physical copy, and have said physical copy, your retail key is in, on, or around the box
If you ordered a physical copy, and do not have said physical copy, your retail key is in, on, or around said box that you are not in possesions of.
NONE of this has any bearing on your Early Access, any key that you have received up until now, that hasn't come from a box is 99% likely to be a pre-order kay and not a RETAIL key
Sorry. But it was called a pre-order key for a reason. Why would anyone think it was anything else.
Not sure what you mean, but if you are saying, "why would people think its a retail key?" I dunno, but alot seem to
If you are saying "Why wouldn't it be a retail key?'' because Many retailers have said its not for one, and B) the retail key is tied to a specific copy of each game. Fro example, you have to open the box to get it from the physical copy
That preorder key is only valid till Dec 20th at which point you need to have your cd-key to continue playing. As far as I am aware though, most retailers should be shipping their copy by the 15th so people should have their CD-key ahead of time.
EDIT: Just as I write this, I get email from my retailer that they've send my SW:TOR copy.
