AO has been pretty much labeled as the worst launch of any MMO ever. Server never being up, no one could stay logged in for longer than 5 minutes. It was unplayable.

STO is going down constantly, I have barely been able to complete quest before being kicked out and losing all progress. Lag so bad that you can't zone sometimes without being kicked out. Combat lagging and rubber banding like mad, and NOW, a queue system. That I have sat over 30 minutes at the same location, 55, and it will not move at all.

I was been around for both, and STO is quickly catching up to AO, the thing is, in 2 days, more people will buy the game and it will become worse. I think it's very possible, that STO may very well be known for the worst MMO launch ever.

No. Anyone who could even ask this has no idea what AO launch was like. Logging in and disconnects were the least of the problems. AO launch things to your computer, character, and credit card that never should have gotten past alpha with a dev team even half awake.

STO launch is just bad. AO launch was a disaster.

If you think its bad so far.. have I news for you...

Up til now, STO has been one of the best MMOs in terms of launch stability, and I've played a LOT of MMOs.

The STO launch is far from perfect, but trust me on that one: This is not even remotely comparable to Anarchy's state when it launched.

COs was better as far as stability
but i think almost all of STOs issues have come from the massive number of people trying to get on
