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.
