Yeah, this is my main issue with Cryptic at the moment. They're acting as though they had no idea that this many people would end up responding to a massive advertising campaign that's been going on since back in November. This is an IP with a huge following, especially after the latest movie, and this game in general and the beta in particular has been hyped by Cryptic for months. I really don't understand why they're now acting surprised that anyone showed up. What did they expect, exactly?

It's this lack of planning, foresight and (IMHO) basic common sense that really worries me about the game's success more than the specific server issues (which are also a problem, but I think they're just a symptom of the real issues here).
