A lot of people have been saying that can't fix much before the final release. They've also been saying that SE doesn't give good communication. Well let's look at what SE has done and told us in just the first three days:

It appears that things are being done... strange. o_O

I pray they do something about the horrible performance the GTX200 series cards are getting.

I'm running a Radeon 5770 and in fullscreen I have some crazy issues but windowed I'm good. I'm confident they'll fix the graphics issues still remaining. Then again they could pull a Vanguard, which was unplayable on lowest settings back when I had my 4850.

BRizzl3,

You like S-E, we get it. haha. As far as launches go, and beta testing goes, and open beta stress tests go, however, 3 weeks of testing is a short time to really hope to iron out a bunch of things for launch.

I love the game. I have two C-E editions pre-ordered. I plan on giving S-E a lot of my money in the future. I don't hate them. But they do have a ton to learn when it comes to MMOs, I think. I'm just playing Devil's Advocate. I honestly think it'd be hard for an objective person to really sit back and say that there isn't a lot of things they could have done better, especially since this isn't their first time up to bat in this environment.

Like I said, I'm really excited for this game and will be spending lots of time/money playing it. But in the posts I've read from you today, I think you're a bit too one-sided on things. hehe.

The game has major issues right now. They will fix them, yes. Should this game be released in 17 days? Probably not.

I just hope they get 'most' of the major problems fixed by release.

I'm using windowed and messed with all the settings. I have to assume it's them.

Oh it's definitely not without major issues, and I do think that it should be a little better than what it is now, but I'm an optimist. This post was meant to be more aimed at people saying that SE is horrible at communicating, not as much at people saying that the game has problems. No MMORPG is without problems.

So should it be better at this point? Yes.
Do I still think that SE has done a good job? Yes.
Am I a bit one-sided on things? Probably.
