I realise that to most readers, Bioware tweaking the EU release date of SWTOR forward by couple of days is an incredibly minor detail.
But I’m seeing it as a nice touch, and it’s because of the Christmas timing. I can live with being a couple of days behind the yanks, but having a release on Dec 20th as opposed to 22nd means a better chance for anyone who ordered from a mail order company like Amazon or Game to get their copy before the Christmas holidays start.
Like I say, not a huge deal, especially since servers are going to be under a lot of stress at the time. But it’s a nice touch and I appreciate it.
