They want my money and devotion to the game, yet they scrimp on servers? Which is the back bone of a MMO.
They are terrible at figuring out their priorities if you ask me.

GET NEW SERVERS! And get them soon. End of problem.

I think thats unacceptable,. And all we get on the forums is bassically a big FU.

Please wait, were sorry thanks. Nothing more. Mabye if they were a bit more forth coming then we would be a little more understanding?

Also do they not read the forums at all or care what we think? Taking the basic attack autofire off ground combat? why? in a game hwere you have to move with the keyboard alot as well as tab target and and use skills mapped to the number keys its extremly fiddly and makes the UI seem clunky.

I see they are not listening to the many threads about the autofore of beam weapons in space and now they take more away?!!!

To add to that the action bar on the ground does not save the skills i put there making me put back all my skills EVERY time i beam down to a planet MOST annoying.

They are starting to ruin this game for me and i really want to play it.

WERE NOT IN BETA ANYMORE GUYS IM PAYING TO PLAY! cmon.

Rant over........Ah thats better. ;-) See you guys in space.........Mabye

Im off to do a few heroics whilst the "Emergency Maint" is carryed out.

Peace sorry for the wall. Please dont hate xxxx
well you always can recognize a sour grape swg player in the forums.......

Development costs money.. servers cost money. Companies try to anticipate the load as best they can, but more than one has been caught off guard by an overwhelming response. The difficulty at that point is the balancing act between getting more servers and not breaking the budget that the high-ups are watching like a hawk.

Anywho, they are working on it.. I seriously doubt they *want* downtime at all but it's bound to happen. Open beta is supposed to be the stress test but really given how difficult it can be to get into open beta's and how brief they run, you don't really get a feeling for the pounding the servers are in for until the game actually launches.

Alright, obviously I have abbreviated your long rant, and put together the main points.

Whether or not you are a troll, has yet to be determined, please do not make judgments for the rest of us.

The forums are for discussion, there is no disclaimer saying, "Post your ignorant thoughts, and we will waste time reading them, instead of fixing known problems/issues."

So, you want the development team to halt repairs/fixes, to go on here and post what they are going to do, instead of actually doing it. Makes sense. Using that rationale, we will have them tell us what they will be doing, and never actually do it. Way to think that through.

Starting to ruin the game for you? You are ruining it for yourself, and everyone else. You have been provided with pre-launch access, the game has been pre-launched for 2 days, relax. You are very impatient, learn to be patient.

You are correct, you are not in BETA any longer, but official LAUNCH is Tuesday. Did you think there would be no mishaps between Friday and then? Are you living on the same planet as the rest of us?

You are not PAYING for this period, it was included in your pre-order of the software, which gave you access to BETA and Pre-Launch and a month of play time, which is in essence the important time. Nevermind the extras, such as characters/slots/ships/etc. Stop your whining.

The reason why people get all hyped up and then feel doom and gloom is because of irrational and illogical posts that criticize an entire game based on responses made by a development in place to FIX THEM.

Sit in your chair, go eat something, have a cigarette, do something. Relax, and save your rants for people who want to read them. This forum is not a place to bash the game, its for discussion that is relevant, not condemning and lacking any real substance.

Good day.

Semantically, yes, it is 'avoidable'.

However, when we are talking with in the context of a business, that avoidability is greatly reduced.

As Trilel points out, this is par for the course for MMORPG launches. There are just too many factors, and not enough resources available to make it work perfectly.

I empathize with the OP's post. Personally, imo, it is better to never even hear about an MMO, until maybe 6 months after release -- eliminating the 'waiting', the expectations, and the buggy launches. For some it is better to simply wait a few months before jumping into a new MMO -- though I can again empathize with the desire to play it asap. However, waiting, helps avoid the annoying growing pains of Launch, imo.

Why did you quote me, I'm not stressed in the least.

It's Star Trek. You could put a turd in a box, slap some Trek looking art and the logo on it and people would buy it. Same with Star Wars and Harry Potter. Basically, you know it's going to be BIG from the outset.

It's frustrating yes, but it's normal. If this was something they could just fix, don't you think they would do that? It's not that easy, just enjoy the ride and buy a cheap back up game for the down time. Facebook games are great for that.
WoW was Blizzard's first mmorpg. This is Cryptic's third. They don't get a pass for this. LotRO didn't have this issue. The game was forced out before it was ready. This will hurt them. You only get one first impression. Many, such as I, will take a deep breath and wait it out. Many will not. Vanguard comes to mind. Such anticipation for that game and it is now virtually a ghost town.
