Tarka...I'm not exactly sure what you're saying here.

I'm not jumping all over Cryptic for bugs within the game. I actually like the game.

But Open Beta is the period when you're supposed to stabilize your servers and test them under load. The time to do that is *not* after your paying customers start to arrive.

Just because almost every MMO has troubles after launch does *not* mean that it is an excusable behavior. This comes from rushing a product out to launch without actually being prepared or putting it under proper test conditions before launch. Period.
