I admit that I logged on hours after it technically launched since that's when I got back home, but other than the billing service being funky for 10 minutes I was in and there was no lag.. no disconnects.. no crashes.
I rank this launch an A.
or a 9/10
or a 4.5/5
Surprising to say the least. I got home today and started up ye ol' PC and after puting my retail code in and starting up the launcher I said to myself. The server is gonna be down. And then when I did get in I said to myself "I give this 30 minutes til it dies" because after all it was US primetime.
And it was smooth. An occasional rubberbanding here and there but for the most part it was all good.
But as I said in another thread. This weekend will be the true test.
I have been critical of the server and stability issues during OB and head start, but I have to say that I was EXTREMELY impressed by the launch today. I don't think I have seen one go off so well. Kudos and congratulations! Keep it up.
