In STO, a massively higher percentage of preorders are actively playing the game during peak times. Cryptic doesn't build the hardware, it takes time to get more, so they instituted a queue so the servers didn't get horribly overloaded. That's exactly the right thing to do, and it's common and normal practice in the MMO industry. World of ******** has queues. EVE has queues. Why did you think it was impossible it would ever happen here?
You have proof of these "crowds completely destroying all industry standard rule of thumb projections" or is that your way of spinning it to look awesome for Crytpic?
