Because if you are unable to do so then you may not have a very good basis for your "evaluation".
Heh, he said "Fallacious" * Opens word calendar*

Sorry, I based it off of personal experience with the following MMOs, and comments from other people on additonal MMOs.
World of ******** (Got to love a game that can't handle the launch load to the point they stop restocking the game on the shelves to keep people from creating more accounts)
Auto Assault
City of Heroes
City of Villains

If you're trying to look smart then bad news, a logical fallacy is a failure of deductive reasoning; you are actually claiming a bare assertion fallacy (i.e., claiming something is true simply by stating it).

In either case you're also wrong, I challenge you to name an MMO that didn't have downtime like this. I guess this is your first launch, bear with it.

This is actually a very nice thread. Productive, not destructive.

My tip:

Hit P while in space and assign the 'balance shields' icon to your hotkey. It works wonders when you're in the thick of things, ultra-fast cooldown as well.

Good luck!

I usually move the "power" for balance shields to the control panel next to weapons. Six one way, half a dozen another.
Note: if you loot a tribble, be careful where you put it. Those be hungry critters.

May as well put this comment in then since folks always ask on this:

- To breed tribbles, put them in your inventory with food items. They will eat the food items and replace them with more tribbles.

- Also, since we've mentioned WoW here earlier, No you cannot "mine for fish". However you can use a [Quantam Mine Launcher] to fish for Aquatic Xindi. Just remember, it's catch and release.

5. right click on an item in inventory or slots for a menu with info and Hide from costume as options.
6. Use your map and read the text.
6b: There's a Galaxy Tab on the map to see all the Sectors and their connections.

I remember back when vanilla WoW launched, did anyone else enjoy hour long queues, random crashes and those wonderful times where everything but the players just went and de-spawned.

Good times.

And anyone remember that story about the EVE Online patch that deleted an important system file (boot.ini) causing a large amount of Win XP users to not be able TO BOOT their PCs? All because they told the patch to replace //boot.ini rather than //eve-online/boot.ini.

Not good times.

All this server crashing? Perfectly normal.

Feel free to add more if you want.
You forgot to tell us how "head start" downtime is different from open beta.
