Launch has been on par with about every other MMO ever released in the last 10 years (those who say otherwise were most likely not there).... There is always crashes, patches, load balancing, redesigning, more patches, etc.... HINT: Never take a week off work for a headstart, take a week off work a month after the game comes out if you want to play 24/7.
However, when I can play, I can say that "I'm having fun." I just thought I would share as a lot of people tend to be spamming the forums with the doomsday predictions however it seemed on par for me.
Thanks for scheduling the maintenance/crashes around my weekend. With two kids and working on house projects, the servers were up the whole time I could get away to play
