    It keeps redirecting me through each of the sign ups. I accept the terms of use license thing and then it goes to my info, and then it goes back to the I accept the terms of use license thing over and over again! D= Samakar is a sad panda.

    Ok, finally got the damn thing to work:

    On the agree to the Terms of Service page, scroll the thing all the way down, THEN check the box and click continue

    Enter your info and press ENTER, do not press Continue because that will redirect you back to the Terms of Service page and it'll say that you have to accept the Terms of Service.

    Then, if you, for whatever reason, are feeling massively stupid, DO NOT THINK ABOUT USING IE!! It decides to redirect you to the very beginning because it won't let the site install its scanning software into your broweser to do a system scan. Do the scan, and then press submit and continue and vwalah! You're done!

    but is star wars, and Bioware.

    all i can say is that i enjoyed every game that bioware did, even Jade Empire.

    and every one likes Star wars!

    all i can hope is that the game is a Kotor MMO, with good class balance for pvp, and that i hope is not only about Realm Vs Realm, but you coud change sides (how can it be star wars game with out beeing able to turn bad or good)

    If their beta signup is any indication of how well their game will run... We're in for a rough road.

    to be fair, this was all akin to trying to log on to the latest hot mmo on launch day whilst everyone is setting up accounts. :p

    its not like most MMOs that have a fan bace of like 1 milion players.

    this is SW and bioware and maybe they had in that day like 30 milion players all trying to log in at the same time!

    to be honest i dont know what is the deal with the mentality about wanting to get into the fisrt day of a MMO.
    when every one knows there is still are lag,serve,balance,etc isues that are usualy fixed in that first/secod critical months.

    but knowing bioware, they have like a year of beta before realice. and they will lunch when rdy.

    Dragon age for the PC, was rdy in march this year, and they pushed the date will this november.

    Also knowing Bioware and watching the videos and what not, this game is not a PvP focused or driven game. It's driven primarily by a strong and powerful story. Good dialogue and story is what Bioware is famous for in their RPGs and I expect no less from this game.
