Well I was about to get my subscription but now I am not so sure....been able to play very little due to the downtime. If Cryptic can't keep the servers up before official launch then whats the use in wasting my money on something in the hopes I get to play tonight. I may add them to my queue of games that don't make me wait to play them. I will be heading over to cancel my pre-order since I have now been in the que for 30 mins and no movement.
There is absolutely no way that all of the game servers are online. This is actually a very good time to test queue-ing systems before the live launch. I'd predict that we'd have a few more weeks of server buggy-ness before anyone should start panicking.
To say that you would cancel your subscription over something as petty as waiting in line for playing a game is nonsense. That's not to say my patience won't eventually run thin as well... but at the moment... I feel for the developers.
So, I would think waiting for launch is much smarter than confounding the whole thing. Moreover... as far as your headstart goes, I work under the assumption that everyone who is posting that they are being disconnected has actually been able to get in and play the game. So... you got your headstart.
Server ques crippled my **** experience to the point were I did not want to subscribe. I very much do not want that to happen here. I was considering a lifetime sub before the offer expires but that won't be happening now. If server ques continue I sadly won't be.
