The only tax I'd be happy to pay.

We don't need government regulation.

Government regulation destroys competition which is the very life-blood of an economy.
Competition is also a much better protector of our 'gaming rights' or whatever you call it.

Its very simple; make your game good or people don't pay.

Now if you can look me in the eye and tell me legislation can be a better regulator than that simple fact?
You need to go out and take some Econ classes.

A little dose of common sense and a 'Brain MK-I' wouldn't hurt either.

The trend will continue to get worse if people don't join together and put a stop to it. Microtransactions will get worse, etc.

The servers will stabilize eventually as the game gets more ironed out. Hell, it's not even the official release day yet. It's just been headstart for ONE day.

That's scary. The government get involved in MMO's then you're going to be charged 500 just to look at your monitor and probably some kind of license and lots of tax. It'd be cool.

The OP has to be trolling.

Has to be.

I mean, this is a PC game. ANYTHING related to computers, has down time. I don't care if it's the power in your home or your internet connection, every single thing has a downtime at some point. Either expected or unexpected, it's the nature of the beast.

Even automobiles have downtime.

Software development, including games, is something you have to wrap your head around. You need to be able to realize, it takes time to fix things. It takes time, to get this in order. It takes time, for servers to reboot and get to an optimal running state.

You also need to remember,your $15 a month (or whatever subscription) is NOT a guaranteed 100% uptime. You don't own the game (DMCA wise people will understand the statement), you aren't guaranteed anything, you simply paying for access to play their game.

Not to mention, by signing up you agreed to their Terms of Service and EULA. Guess what, down time and everything else, is mentioned in the ToS. Now, some companies if it is a on going problem, might be nice enough to credit you with X amount of free days (WoW has done this in the past). But they don't owe us anything, we agreed to this by signing up and playing.

If you dislike it, do not play the game. Simple as that. You are entitled to your opinion, yes, but going to a drastic measure as "omgz lets contact our congrezzmen!" type mindset, is not going to solve anything.

Welcome to the world of MMORPGs and online gaming.
