I could see this kind of server activity in beta, but this is launch, live, early start is supposed to be a thank you to all the folks that helped beta test, so they can get a few days before the general public come in. This isnt early start, its more beta testing and what ever cluts you have working in the server room, get his butt out so he stops tripping over the extension cord.
Quit complaining... 95% of every other MMO has had 3-10X more downtime during their HS and lauch phases.
If you all are so unhappy with dealing with the bumps of a MMO launch, either
1) DONT PLAY
2) Don't play till it gets stable
So stop crying that "oh I paid $60 for THIS" OMg shut it people. Learn to live with it... this is how mmo's launch.. unfinished.. buggy and crashy... the ONLY major mmo that had a REALLY smooth lauch was LOTRO
I have played several mm's from beta to launch and you are right, none of them went smooth, but that dosnt make it right, its just what we have come to expect. With the recent laucnh of Champions Online I would think that Cryptic would have a better grasp of the situation. Especially on the hardware side.
Let me guess... this is the first MMO you've ever been with since launch? I've been with 13 at launch and they all crash, several times for the first couple of weeks. It takes time to fine-tune all the systems.
You mean, this will last 2 more weeks ? hmmmm this will be fun.
They need more Servers and they need Europe Servers , it can not be, that every day when the US gamers try to start there Games , the server crashes ! I mean here in Germany its primetime the most people play now or try to play !
