And no, not everything can be sorted during a beta period. For one thing there is a difference in population levels and activities.
By the way, not even the devs can guarantee 24/7 server access without interruption. Read the EULA if you don't believe me. "Since when does anyone read a EULA?" aint a valid excuse for writing posts complaining about server downtime.
I've beta tested and played plenty, and this game is no where near state of the art and the servers are barely loaded compared to what they could have in a couple of days. MMO's aren't something new and this is Cryptic's third MMO and their second using the very same engine as CO, so my expectations are sky high for these guys. To paraphrase Homer Simpson, this game isn't popular enough to be bad.
If they fix whatever it is that is wrong with the servers in short order, then no harm no foul. Even WoW had some hiccups after launch. I don't know about you, but I'm very, very tired of paying money for substandard work and service.
