Grace period has been published as 5 days before launch (so December 15th).  It will be staggered pre-order release, which means, First Pre-orders, get the full 5 days, later pre-orders may only get 1-2 days grace.

Also, Amazon (from memory) also issued an email statement, mentioning both the game will be posted, and the CD-Key Emailed (not sure if this comes from Amazon, or BioWare/EA).
Either way, you may get the key before the boxed game, which means, downloading might be quicker to start playing, than waiting for the boxed game to be posted across country =)

And yay, open beta almost here!

I just received my Beta invites, and looks as though this beta is going to be less than 20gb download.

I actually setup 2 accounts.  So if someone doesn't have an invite, and wants to get one, I can activate my second account.  =)  Then do the extra security settings, and forward you the details.

Just brought my pc to work to leech their unlimited bandwidth deal lol

I got my invite but only have a 30GB cap. So it's time to call for favors among my 200GB bandwidth mates :D

This would be great if anyone has and was.

I can't get into the Login section on swtor.com at present. I suspect they're swamped again.

swamped, yes, they even did scheduled maintenance on their servers yesterday (probably to improve performance for all the logins etc they will be getting!)

Once downloaded, can it be shared?  Thought the installer/downloader doesn't save the install files/packs.

Are the invites randomly sent out? Or is it based on the order in which people did their pre-order?

I pre-ordered yesterday afternoon through amazon and signed up online last night with the pre-order key amazon emailed me.  Apart from it mentioning "early access" I am not sure If I should be expecting to receive an invite or not.  Does anyone know how this works?

To be honest Id be happy if I could just download the game on the release day though.

Invites for the last beta weekend were only sent to people who ordered before 11.11.11.

You get early access for pre-ordering anytime I believe, but depending on when you pre-ordered, you'll get up to 5 days early access.

Cool, thanks for clearing the Beta access up. 

Does "early access" mean that I can download the client before the physical media arrives?  ie: download and play the game on the release date instead of waiting till the 4th of January for the DVD to get shipped to me?

Yes, you should apparently be able to download the game with the game key/login account from Origin.com.

Thanks for that, it was exactly what I was after.  The site was 'incredibly' slow last night (most pages wouldn't load at all) and the site is blocked at work for me today. 

Hopefully it is working better tonight so I can go through see what all the details are.
