*!*!*We are investigating an issue where some players are seeing a "login failed for unknown reason" error at the log-in screen.*!*!*
We are investigating a bug where some Gold Members may not have received their additional character slot -- details here (Will be fixed ASAP!).
UPDATE! We are also investigating reports of slow patching and are working on a resolution. For a better patch experience, please restart your launcher. It will pick up where it left off and should be faster to complete.

I don't have too much faith in that list since one name in particular has a history for destroying games under SOE and was responsible for the almost complete obliteration of one MMO with a popular IP which was on life support from what I heard last. However it is good to see that Jack got on it as I think the games broke alot of ground. Particularly in customization so that players can make a very unique character. Personally, I would of given him at least one slot higher.
Oh my, he beat out both Raph Koster and Richard Garriott... ...nice going, Jack!
So... ...does him being so influential mean we can blame him for everything we don't like about today's MMOGs?
Raph koster hehe, I don't think that's much of a fight. As far as Garriot goes, no offense to the man, but he is so disconnected from the playerbase it is not even funny. The few times I saw him in the TR beta, it felt more like talking to the kid that was spinning in his chair going "Weeeee" the entire time.
