Even though this thread itself is fail, I tend to agree with the OP's point though. SE's p2p downloader is garbage.

SE gave us the framework for the game but us as the players have to do all the legwork.

Having to make a macro to keep my action bars when i change weapon, not automatic.

Tis a bit backwards.

True, people have been complaining about the action bar reset since alpha. What's the macro to keep your action bar?

FYI... this is not the game, its open beta of the game. There working on these issues, its only the second day of open beta and there already patching things up. I know it may be frustrating.. but were in this for free to help them make a better game

If you switch classes, let's say from botanist to miner some general DoL/DoH skills will carry over; 'Throw Stone' and such. But if you now switch from miner to gladiator and back, 'Throw Stone will' be gone, because it can't be equipped by gladiators and therefore removed. So you have to write macros (preferably the ones you change to class X anyway, switching weapons manually is painful) to keep your skills in you action bar on changing classes.

Actually, the ONLY reason the "beta testers" in Closed Beta 3 and Open Beta are in the game is to stress test the servers for SE. SE stopped accepting bug reports and suggestions since Closed Beta 2.

But now the people who are supposed to help SE stress test can't get into the game because SE can't/won't resolve the HUGE issue that is their crap downloader, which defeats the purpose of having the current beta testers.

It's like SE wants us to help them, but is not letting us help them.

Whiny threads? this game is Horrible so far lol. Good on you for applauding/accepting mediocricy, just hope that isn't how you function IRL and accept "Half-Assing" something as being "good-Enough". They (SE) failed, or rather are failing at this game so far.

MMO's are not finished at launch. They continue to improve and grow as time goes on. You don't get the finished product right away. I don't see how you can call something fail if it isn't even done. You can either accept the game knowing it is still evolving or reject it based on your own desire for instant gratification.

I've never played those, so I wouldn't know.

Played UO for a month, got bored.
Played XI for 2 years.
Played WoW for a month got lvl 65 got bored.
Played STO for a month, game sucked.
Playing this beta now, it is making me feel immersed for once.

Can't speak for anything else. But I do know that MMO's have constant updates to improve the game.

Mediocrity? your admiting that you expected this game to be the very **** of the gods, just because you don't like somthing about a game doesn't mean it's a bad game, it mean's you don't like it. I'm enjoying the game, so i will continue to play it. also no matter what people think the game is still beta, I.E not finished, you are not playing a demo, if you want to play the game wait 3 weeks for it to be finished, then form an opinion on it. To say they failed at making the game is downright redundant, it works, for the last 4 days so many people have been playing it for extended periods of time that they are continually having to add more servers. So many people playing an unfinished game is in no way a failure.

The game itself is great (minus a few flaws I'm hoping will be fixed for retail); it's the downloader that's the problem.

To answer your other question, any post that is tanamount to "BAWWWWWW the game doesn't have what I want, I'm canceling my preorder!" is a whiny thread. In my opinion (key words there), the community will be better off without those people.

To me, the beta is the cake. Retail is where we'll see the icing.

Just hope the cake isn't a lie. :P

It's so hard to read these idiotic posts. SE is failing? Because they didn't make the game YOU wanted? Who says stupid things like that?
