Have we gotten so used to bad launches that we take this crud as the norm? i would have rather they waited a month then put the game out. Or maybe a 2 MONTH OPEN BETA rather then 2 WEEKS????

I know the devs are working their butts off... trying to hold it together but this game is a month away from release not 2 days...
Or - it could be headed the way of World of ******** - as that game had the EXACT SAME type of server issues due to high demand and two months later - WoW was STILL having these issues (see linked article from January 2005 - 2 months after the WoW launch):

My point: You guys at Cryptic REALLY need to expand your server farm hardware base to adequately handle the demand. If it's this high with just the pre-orders, the server capacity you currently have won't handle tuesday very well IIMO. You really need to expand on your installed hardware. The situation COULD really harm this game if you don't start to address it fast.
