What will a fanboi say in _____ (fill in your own time frame) about the status of the game?

Fill in your own time frame and put in what you think a fanboi would say as an excuse......


When the game folds because everyone else realizes the game wasn't ready for launch....

fanboi: 'Its cause of all those QQ'ers and trolls who said the game sucked, that's why it was unstable"

Don't like the game? Leave. That's what we'll say.

ya heaven forbid they fix the game, better for everyone to leave.


When the server crashes again in primetime...

fanboi: 'It was scheduled maintenance! They even posted about it (links post scheduling maintenance for 3am to 5am pst and not 3pm to 5pm PST)"

fanboi: "Its open beta (actually headstart)"

Did you even play in open beta? It's amazing how far the game has come since open beta began. Heaven forbid the game isn't perfect on launch day! Whatever shall we do??

yes I did, and the game actually regressed. Some minor issues were fixed, but they introduced more and more bugs towards the end. I haven't gotten to the same point yet as I was when I stopped in OB, but I'm sure they're still there as some people have encountered some already that were there.

Yes heaven forbid the game not be perfect at launch, because it should be, thats what betas are for, to find the bugs.

What will a fanboi say when they encounter a bug?

fanboi: "I love that awesome feature, and thank you devs for nerfing me too, I needed it!"

You really don't know jack ***** about programming, do you? If betas found every single bug there was to be found, they'd never patch games. Hell, Blizzard still patches Starcraft after all of these years.

When you figure out how to write bug-free code on your first pass, come back to this topic. Until then, GTFO.

Really for MMO's it isn't. Closed beta is for getting initial out of house opinions on the game, get a feel for if the UI you think is intuitive feels that way for the user, see how people take the news that you can only fire one torpedo tube at a time, etc.

Open Beta is more for stress testing the server than for finding bugs. Finding bugs is nice, but more important is getting the server running well. No game designer is going to expect a project this big to ship bug free, especially when they only had 18 months to build it. This is my 5th MMO Beta/launch, and none of them have been perfect.

Just do what we all do, take a deep breath, make yourself some hot earl grey tea, and let the dev's do their job.

No offense, but it's an MMO. I've played probably a dozen or so MMO's from launch. With not a single exception, every single one had unscheduled downtime during release week.

So far, I've only experienced one crash, in about 12 hrs of playing time. That's actually ahead of the game for most MMO's in my experience (out of major MMO's released, I'd say EQ, SWG, WOW, Anarchy Online, **** were all worse during launch week).

Why are you even here? It's clear you want this game to fail.
