WoW launch was horrid in comparison. By OP's point, WoW should have died within 24 hours of the servers turning on.
Hyperbole much, there, OP?
As much as I hate WoW, I'm sick of seeing people post this "excuse" on the forum. WoW had and still has an unprecedented amount of players. I assure you Cryptic has a ton less amount of players to deal with.
