Bioware is taking beta applications for the SWTOR MMORPG. Of course the system was overwhelmed and the site went down. Not a good sign. How will the Star Wars: The Old Republic beta and launch run if the web site can’t even handle a little web site traffic? It does not fill me with confidence.
If you got your Star Wars: The Old Republic beta test application in before the www.swtor.com web site went down then you are in luck. However, the chances of you being selected based on the sheer numbers are slim to zero.
