This is going to sound like a moan and I understand the problems involved but if you consider how long MMOs have been around now one would of thought that THESE FLIPPING PROBLEMS WOULD BE A THING OF THE PAST. And yea, Im in EU so we normally get hit the hardest.
Well, we didn't hit server gridlock until noon EST today, everything was good here until then. Got stuck zoning into Memory Alpha and am now stuck at the "Loading Characters" screen. Looks like all the late-sleepers just logged on
