If it were early Beta, fair enough. But the game is due to launch in a few weeks, and I would have thought that these obvious points would have been addressed, having played several Beta's, such as WoW and Eve.
Actually, they have been adressed... in CB. Alot of the issues seen in CB seem to have crept back into OB. However, i'm sure they know exactly what is causing some of these issues as they have had to revert back a little on the patching.
I think that today was a major success for a first day in OB. I'm not sure what gives you the idea that WoW and EvE were flawless even at release LOL... I remember otherwise. Could they be false memories?
