    It's...Ok-ey to nice at the moment. Went for a smuggler and got to about level 7. Had no glitches or bad ping, very quick to load in the levels.

    The main page does take a while, especially when picking a server. Glad to see more English speaking servers but there is about a half hour wait for most now.

    Want to try another character but it hasn't seemed to acknowelge me logging off that first character, so can't do another one. Unless we are only allowed one in this test?

    Seems to stop on loading screen if logging out. Currently have a level 6 smuggler lady. Haven't seen any jedi classes about, are they locked at the moment?

    It's a bit of a cookie cutter MMO but I'm having fun with some of the bounty hunter dialogue and the general pew pew of it all.

    Yeah noticed the logging out thing myself, had to force close. (no pun intended!)

    Pretty sure that the Smuggler and Trooper class start in a different area to the Jedi Classes, same with the Sith side.

    It's been all right so far. I've been playing as a trooper and the story has been fine. I've just been soloing through it so it's been like an online KOTOR. I like the fact that kill X of Y missions are just incidental (although they usually sucker me in with the word "bonus" ) and everything so far has been pretty much story based, as you'd expect from BioWare. 7/10.

    The logging out is a known issue - if it happens you have to Alt-F4 to shut the client. The V-sync and AA is also switched off currently. But it just feels so polished already. It's miles ahead of previous MMO's I've tested at this stage.

    Myself and a few mates sat up until 4am last night messing around and it's amazing. A few glitches and oddities here and there, but it's amazing just how good a shape it's in - there's queues to get on the servers of course, but once you're in the latency normally hovers from 45m to 65m which is good by any standard never mind beta.

    The queues meant we got thrown into disarray a bit though, so rather than wait 3 or 4 hours to get folks on we all piled onto one of the French servers instead. We also got a basic guild going too so everyone that's on can keep in touch the next few days.

    I've really enjoyed what I've played so far. Looking forward to trying some missions with other classes and real people soon, if not to see where the story will change depending on what other people do around me.

    Just a couple more hours work and I'll be able to get back to it. I think I'm going to have to pre-order it when the weekend is up.

    I'm loving this personally, mainly soloing as a Jedi Knight (well someone has to).

    Lovely art design, no lag (about 45ms), great framerate (30-50) and best of all the intro class missions are very story driven and surprisingly interesting. And you get to use a lightsaber.

    It's in proper good shape for a beta I'd say.

    I'll be there day one but back to Skyrim for me in the meantime.

    Did you get an email with the specific time you can start playing?

    No, just a generic "you have been accepted into the test" email.

    I think the stress test access has been staggered to emulate the early access process planned for release. Did you receive an email that indicates when you will be able to log in?

    As far as I recall there was a second email sent later on that states when you can log in.

    @darkmorgado - it might be worth checking here to see if there are any problems with your beta access:

    http://www.swtor.com/tester

    If all is well it should say 'in progress' about halfway down the page.

    I've checked all the ones I got, and none of them mention a specific time, just this weekend.

    Huh, looks like I was wrong. One was hidden in my junk box.

    10am CST on the 26th.

    So... what is that GMT?

    My partner was on last night... loads of servers were offline and all the other ones were either Full or had waiting times of up to 5 hours to log in. So we could be waiting a while even after 4pm :D

    I think the wait times are quite pessimistic - I didn't have to wait longer than about 30-45 mins to get in.

    You mean you think the game's stated queue times are exagerrated?

    I guess you may be right. I have many memories of waiting in the LFD queue in WoW and being told I have an hour to wait, only to be dumped in a group within a couple of minutes.

    @darkmorgado - I've just logged in now and it estimated 1h09m but actually took approx 5 mins.

    The stress test started off with just one UK server. They quickly increased that to four yesterday (3 PvE, 1 PvP) and it looks like it has been increased again to a total of seven (6 PvE, 1 PvP) - I'm guessing to help cope with the influx of new players this afternoon.

    I would guess the stated queue times are very rough. It said 18 mins for me last night and I was on in less than 10.

    Come join me on my server...when I remember what it's called.
