Someone's been drinking the funny lemonade. Have you read the boards about all the disonnects and Steam issues some folks are having? Personally, yes, I have seen worse...SWG was...*shudders*..tough. Yes, the servers haven't crashed, but there is some serious issues with the login and account servers. It's frustrating, but I don't care...I'm having fun when I can play. There's not a damn thing *I* can do about it, so why even really worry about it. Not worth it. and yup...I'm a lifetime subscriber...oh wellll....it could be ALOT worse. I haven't been able to stay connected for more than 20 minutes at a time...I just try and troubleshoot it on my own and report it, and wait for official news..
STEAM issues are not Cryptics business, so I don't think that can be blamed on them.
The servers were only backed up until maybe 1030 yesterday (I was on and playing after just enough time to make a sandwich and get settled.
The Borgs were fixed as fast as possible. Borg players may have lost a day at best. Frankly, no one else got their bonus anyway, so we're lucky.
I've been impressed, while the account server had to be taken down once, the actual game server never crashed..which almost never happens on an MMO launch day. There was an issue with the borg characters - but they were recieving them ahead of time anyway.
Almost : there were connection problems at 10am. But overall, yes, this was pretty smooth. Provided that the whole architecture doesn't blow up on monday when the masses connect, I'd say that Cryptic did pretty well.
I have to agree.... after the 10am hicup, the game ran smooth all day and night for me... No lag, graphic issues and only one "rubber band" event... I have been in most of the past major MMO's and STOL ranks as the best launch ever..
Now the hard part starts... continuing content and keeping the mission bugs beat down
