Impressions of LaunchFollow

Well, we're a good bit into the launch. I figured I'd just give a quick blurb on how I feel the release went for me personally.


In-game specific:

1.) The mouse seems a little better to me since I last played - even though I use it sparingly. It was must worse in CB.

2.) UI lag greatly improved but at this point I'd say there is still a slight delay on some stuff. I wont attribute this completely to the UI until congestion/population even out - but it's definitely not as bad as it was (crafting process much quicker for me overall) in OB.

3.) Server stability - Never crashed once, at all. Always stayng in the green for me - and not much lag beyond people loading in at the Guild/Camps.


Setup:

1.) I found no problems of congestion while setting up any account related functions. That includes payment, registering codes, etc (and I even did this on 2 accounts total) - went smoothly for me personally. People were screaming bloody murder about this one came CE release day - but I had no problems, not even a timeout.

2.) Installation and patching.. I know some had trouble with this, but beyond normal install time I patched within 20-30 minutes or so I'd say, tops. Wasn't bad at all.

3.) Beyond a slight issue with getting into Selbina - it was fixed quickly and I got right in and played (after working out character name mess, oi) -was suprised.

Overall:

I think it went INCREDIBLY good for -me- personally - I thought I would have MUCH more problems then I did. I am pleasently suprised and the first day of launch has been so smooth.

Anyone else?

Seeing as I cant even get the game to install I say its the worst launch possible.

Well for me the initial set up in my Square Enix acount went smoothly - I used a second computer to do that while my main was loading the game. The game itself didn't take long to install off the disk, but the patch has been taking quite a while for me. I've had to shut my virus protection off (for an hour at a time) for the third time now, so it's been at least two and a half hours since the patch started. I've had to shut that down a few times too because it keeps "timing out" because the upload/download speeds keep setting at 0.0 for a while. The problems really seemed to start about an hour ago when it was at 85.6% but it is finally now up to 89.6% with the upload/download speeds fluctuating between 0.0 and 25.0 or so.

Of course, I don't really know if it is because of my internet or because of congestion. Either way, I think I may actually get to play at some point tonight, but I won't hold my breath yet. =)

By the way, does anyone have any recommendations on what servers would be best to get onto? I dont particularly want to be on a roleplaying one, so please don't steer me to one of those.
