An MMO is a very very complicated thing to run.

I find Cryptic at fault and lacking on many issues, but this wouldn't be one of them.

The sheer complexity of the systems that sustain a server designed for several hundred thousand people to connect to (and simultaneously play on) in real time, each with many many many hundreds of custom variables affecting their traits and appearance..... it makes my head hurt.

Not to mention that since they released a huge patch recently new bugs are going to crop up by the dozens.This means (hopefully) nearly daily patching to fix the issues that weren't found in beta testing.
