According to Rockjaw, today's waves of invites should cover people who registered their code up to the end of november.

So i assume tomorrows waves will be december which means we should all be in before the weekend :)


Crossing fingers up to 30/11 will be invited today :)

And I'm just about to go into town and pickup the actual game now from Game.


I saw somewhere on the SWTOR-site that we that didn't buy the CE-edition can pay up some more cash and get the special stuff that comes with the CE ingame.

EDIT: Is the extra 14€ worth the ingame CE-toys.

i'd not seen anything about being able to buy the CE extras for cash.

They said that retail codes stack, so if you apply a CE code to a regular account it will upgrade it and you get any extras plus gametime i believe.

Or if you apply a digital deluxe code to a retail standard copy you can get the deluxe extras.

But to get the CE extras you'd have to find and buy a CE retail box at full price.

edit*
I know during the beta that the area with the CE vendor was accessible if you spent 1 million credits on a braclet to get entry. But i believe that was so they could test some of the CE stuff and didn't make it into the final game.

And tbh i've not seen anywhere near the amount of rage i would expect on the forums from the entitled CE players complaining that their gifts are no longer as rare :D

just seen this post on the forums

Quote:
I was reading the last posting from Bioware on the main page where you can buy the security key (on it's own) and in doing so will allow you to gain access to a vendor selling unique items.

I would like someone to confirm to me this is not the same vendor that you get with the Collectors Edition. I can't put to words how bad it would be if this was the case...


and someone has replied that it's not the same vendor as the CE one.

Quote:
It is not the same vendor, I saw it in beta. I wasn't able to interact with him so I can not confirm what items he sold but he is located outside the city gates for the Empire side.

The area itself is 1mil access, but the vendor that sells the items is CE only.

it depends really, it's all just vanity items like the rest of the extras and the vendor.

Do you want to show off a holodancer? fire a flare gun in-game?

There was talk that the holo camera droid thing might actually do something. Some people thought it might record in-game footage which i think is highly unlikely, at best i thin it might allow you to take screenshots either without a UI or with a "holo" ui/sheen laid over it (that's if it actually does anything).

Personally i got the CE for the journal, music cd's, secure token and the in-game vendor. Doubt i would pay for just the 5 digital extras but it's up to you.

looks like all of november will get in today and maybe quite a few of december.

We're starting to send out more invites for today.

Here's the good news: overnight we decided to send out more invites than we had originally planned. However, we'll be spacing those invites out, which means we'll have more 'waves' than the previous four-per-day. We are inviting more people today than we did during yesterday.

EDIT: Hope there will be another wave, didn't get in the last one. And that last tweet said it wasn't the last one as they usually do when there aren't anymore.
