Look I'm quite disappointed, not going to lie. I'm am blaming I agree but, I mostly want to know what is the reason behind this, I want answers, that is all.

This is OPEN BETA it is meant as a STRESS TEST OF SERVERS AND NETWORK that is the whole point of this not to mention finding more bugs. So bear with them they only just started this whole thing and they will surely increase the stability of the servers, increase the bandwidth, and so forth before this ever Launches.

They were messing with a property as popular as Star Wars though and just as old. What did they think would happen?

I just wanna try it out for a few minutes! Could people be time restricted to an hour or two at a time and have some sort of queue for people to sit in? The getting kicked out after paying $60 is just a little annoying...

Nulious you must be new to stress testing. They are purposly stressing the servers. That is the main point of open Beta, the other point is to get rid of as many other bugs as possible.
