    ok, tomorrow is official launch and I'll be getting my Collector's Edition which comes with 3 10 day trials... I have one definitely spoken for, but the other two are up for grabs. Let me know if you're be interested in a trial card :) 

    PS> my handle is @Zeta_Otaku ingame.

    I have both my Amazon CE and Steam Digital Deluxe for tomorrow. Looking forward to all those bonuses.

    On a side note, apparently you can change weapon color via text command.

    Hit me up with a trial code. Been interested in this, but wary of how the game itself is going to sustain a longetivy of playtime (as in, what the hell is there to do)

    If someone else doesn't get one to you before I get home tomorrow, I'll pass on one of mine. Currently, I can see justification in your concern, as the content isn't all that varied for either space or ground. However, I enjoy the Fleet and PvP aspects of the large space battles and look forward to the greater diversity of higher teir ships, gear, and skills.

    As Kando said, we have the fleet up and running, just give one of us a shout if we are on. We can all recruit.

    Yeah, too bad the server can't stay up for any reasonable length of time. How much downtime have we gone through since Friday?

    I'm not looking forward to tomorrow.

    i'm not that fearful for tomorrow since a lot of people who pre-ordered will get it shipped and not received tomorrow, but the weekend will be painful

    server is down!? DOOOOOOM!

    seriously, no MMO has had a flawless launch. However, Cryptic only takes the servers down if there's a major problem and they need to fix. This usually takes two hours to fix and test internally before bringing up the servers. Honestly, i prefer this method that when a glitch/bug/exploit is found, they'll pull down the server and fix it ASAP instead of waiting a week for this bug/glitch/exploit to fester until a scheduled time later in the week.

    Anyway, kicky, you'll have a pm from me tomorrow with a trial code.

    One thing I'm kinda bummed about is that they are fixing the /powerhue command. I was looking forward to being able to have each member in a team use a different colored weapon, regardless of type. It would have made it much easier to determine who was shooting what in some of those larger engagements.
