To be fair, the people citing the fact the game is in its early few months as an 'excuse' will be pretty spot on, for the most part.
I can't think of a single MMO that took less than a few months after launch to really get anywhere close to being of a decent standard. Hell, plenty of them struggle to keep up with the hardware alone for the first year - if Cryptic can use OB as a litmus test and manage to keep on top of hardware issues at the very least, they'll be way ahead of many of their competitors.
Unfortunately, few people seem to remember the early days of successful MMOs like WoW - or just simply weren't around and for some reason presumed they were born the fully grown monsters they are today.
At the very least, should this game last well past the year mark, ideally well past the 2, 3, 4 year marks - the fact that the launch had issues will be rather meaningless and forgotten about too.
Best bet is to avoid these forums like hell for about a year or two. :p
