Let me help you by restating it... you must have missed the first line...

"A loss of revenue or at best delayed revenue."

This is not a good example of irony.

Without resorting to dramatics, I have to agree with Metallurgist. Cryptic seriously underestimated demand, something we said multiple times before closed beta, and multiple times since. I think it would be prudent to add at least two servers, one for our friends in Europe and Africa since they share time zones, and another for the Oceanic crowd. Maintenance times should coincide with ther region's slack time except for content pushes of course.

It's not my responsibility to provide them capital for a product release. I'm not an investor. If I was, I'd be more peeved at this rollout.

That's the simplified way of teaching you all how business works...
How many MMOs have you been with on Launch Day/Week? I'm going to guess "not many". Either that or you have a *very* selective memory about how MMO Launches go. If you're so eager to quit after only 3 days, well, I honestly don't know what world you live in or what you were expecting....

Silly dweeb.
I don't think his comment was even remotely trying to get you to stay. You start a thread that's only real purpose is to start a flame war, and then act indignant when what you intended from the start comes to fruition. Its amusing really. Next you'll claim you're not trolling, when point in fact the thread title and your original posts are obvious attempts at. Then eventually you'll stop responding because the flame war will have enough speed to continue without you or the thread gets locked.

Honestly, if you left...no one would care.

Actually it is a good example because the vast majority of trekkies are middle age or older.

You'd expect folks of those age brackets to understand business and not act like kids in their replies.

It's very ironic that Star Trek has apparently brought out the worst in you all when Gene had a much different perspective.

QFE.

Also, refer to the developer's statement on 1/16 about the miscalculated needs based off information gathered from multiple sources.

Star Trek isn't an IP, it's a religion. You might as well be posting on a Scientology forum for all the reason you can expect to encounter.
