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.
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.
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.
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.
