I suppose that is a good sign. It means that there are more players than anticipated during Cryptic's server upgrade. Hopefully they will upgrade things further in the next few months. I have a feeling that the servers might melt down on Saturday. I'm not gong to have a chance to play the new featured episode until at least Sunday night, so hopefully things will have calmed down by then.
And people were complaining that there were no benefits to being gold.
