I think I must be jinxing the game or something. Every time I log in, I get about 15 minutes of play time before a crash or maintenance. That or there are some very major issues that need to be worked out before Tuesday. I'm thinking maybe I need to step back for a month or so and come back IF things are more stable by then. Great game, though, from what little I've gotten to see of it.
