Now that being said, I know first day launches are ruff, but its been a long time since I saw one THIS bad.

If Cryptic is only going to have 1 server for the entire world then they really need to make sure that 1 server can handle everyone.
You don't have to pay to get a Beta Key. With that said, I think that Cryptic simply was not prepared for the level of interest in an MMORPG of an IP, like Star Trek. Champions could not have prepared them for this. I feel that there could have been a better method of deploying the client, but this is a part of what beta is all about. Cryptic is at least getting a rough idea of what type of infrastructure they are going to need for launch.
