and to those who say "lol bye won't miss ya" understand that this is not an isolated incident, the more people that leave the less enjoyable the game will be for you
No it won't. This game is hardly based around massive numbers. I quite enjoyed EvE online back in the day when I might see 5k online. My WoW server only has a few thousand players. I don't need hundreds of thousands of people I will never in see in game.
I think the bigger joke is the people that expect a game to work perfectly the moment it is launched... take a chill pill guys, this is what happens to all MMORPGs
yes but tbh mate devs should bloody learn from the past and have it set up better, yes all mmos have initial issues but not like this, and the bair face lie caling it 'unexpected downtime' when it happens bang on the hours is a joke, like earlier exacty 9am pst the server died and it was unexpected? **** that its just a lie. cryptic shouldnt have been so damn cheap and ivested in a better server system
And no...I don't wait at a restaurant either ... Their cheeseburger isn't more valuable than my time on the earth...
Plus...remember...we all pay for *reservations* ..at this point, we all called ahead and reserved a table....
That said...I can live with the queue as long as they don't view it as their solution... I wait in enough lines already... In fact I use my computer primarily to *avoid* lines at stores, getting my licenses. making reservations etc....
as long as they implement it wisely, it's cool...but it is *not* a solution...it's a dodge....
Here is my concern. I have been sitting in the queue for 30 minutes started at 202 of 202 and now I am 201 out of 1200 some odd people. It is only the head start. What is going to happen on Tuesday or next week when there are even more people playing the game?
Hopefully they will add some more servers to their cluster to increase their capacity.
The game launches, i get home from work to play the game and WACK. I'm in a queue.
I go make some food and do some house chores. Come back to maybe kill a few borg. WACK. I'm in a queue.
I'm in a queue, waiting to play the game i paid for.
It's totally unacceptable in a product driven industry, to say to customers "hey, yea, you've paid for the game, theres queues but thats what happens with major mmo's".
They know it happens. Yet they let it happen.
This is a simple statement, saying its totally unacceptable to think its "ok" to wait for a "game".
