um the tweet said more or less, we know there's a problem, we have no idea what's causing it, and I assume they are working their hardest. I'm the boss but I don't know what's going on because I'm about to get on a plane...

Oh and the game is crap atm, MP is fun when it isn't glitched... but the graphics are not what I expect... as in worse than CoD4:MW(1). Try to manually select a server and the server keeps moving and your cursor doesn't follow it. Try to auto join and it will almost always give you a full server. This is also a game that was Beta tested and didn't release with improvements from said test.

*EDIT* Ok I get defualted for posting the truth? Just to help some of you out, here's the Tweet


I've generally been the sort that says if I don't have any information it's best to not say anything, but that can get translated incorrectly as being disinterested.

When people are upset, they want answers. When someone from Treyarch replies, but doesn't have answers I have found it just makes them more upset.

This is the truth. As I have said, I'm not totally sure what is going on yet. I am not in the office. I am travelling for work. I can only gleam bits and pieces from various email aliases I am on (and I am not on every alias as it's too much email especially for mobile device when traveling).

I know that Customer Support has been collecting information and trying to sort out the legit reports from the many people who don't meet the system requirements by collecting dxdiags and the like.

I know that the PC server browser was crushing the back-end. At first, queries were restricted and some caching was added to offset the high-load. This should be much better now, if not fixed outright.

I've asked for more information but don't have it yet. Probably because they are all super busy trying to work everything out.

Unfortunately, I am going to have to step on a plane this afternoon and will be out of service for no less than 15 hours. No doubt JD_2020 or the board admins will keep you informed as well as they can and are instructed.

im not entirely sure how this is any different to what SE did, information has been continually being displayed on lodestone, and CoD obviously had testing too. Im not justifying either as good or bad, but i dont see a difference.

SE should start releasing more glitchy games and apologize later?

We really want to compete against World of Warcraft and for example the new Star Wars MMO.

#6ironmonk25, Posted: Nov 11 2010 at 7:53 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) actually they should take notes on how to fix a problem fast if one comes up, how to make an actually fun game, how to actually have high sales on any platform...should I go on? black ops broken is more fun the ffxiv 2 months after but ironmonk it hasn't been two months! I include open beta as launch because nothing changed in this **** taco

like i said, i wasnt defending against or not, just dont see any difference between the 2. They both came out buggy they both said what was going to happen to create a fix. And I think you will find there was a maintenance to sort out server lag the first day of release of FFXIV, and general lag was sorted there and then
