Just this past month since i backed STN, i've probed the forums every workday for updates but it only seems the people waiting are getting more and more toxic. I hope the playerbase does not tear itself to pieces before the game is even released.
Patience is key... lest everyone turn to the Dark Side. Remember, the only good Sith is a dead Sith!
P.S. There is alot of salt over this and alot of folks have waited for a long time but after servers are up and the initial bugs worked out everyone is going to be like... "Yes. Yes, this is a fertile land, and we will thrive. We will rule over all this land, and we will call it... "This Land."."
Just Google'd when steam release their games.
Most Steam games are released at 10AM PST, as Sbr mentioned, which is 19:00 in continental Europe and 6PM in the UK. It's not a hard rule as Steam sometimes does release games at midnight, but those are usually exceptions only made for "big name" games.
