I personally am not demanding compensating; but, I expect SE to do something to address the dissatisfaction that's spreading like a staff infection amongst it's player base. It's what a proper manager/owner should do in times like this. Proper gameplay and server functionality are to be expected, and not a 'compensation' for something you already and will continue to pay for.
So, what, pray tell, are you asking for? @#%^ing magic? Writing code takes time. Testing takes time. Rigging up servers, installing programs, routing... all take time. You obviously have no goddamn clue how the magic box you sit at works, but there are not fanciful little leprechauns running about, passing your "bits" and "bytes" around, and painting the pretty pictures that make you able to see these words on your screen.
sh*t happened. Stuff broke. Reality exceeded prediction. This is normal, and when it's done, no one will give two @#%^s. Losing your tiny little mind will change absolutely none of this, and just makes you look spastic and retarded. So, do yourself a favour: Shut down your PC, turn off your console, and exit your home. It's likely a lovely day outside, and the fresh air and perspective will do you good.
Yes it's a game. A game I CONTRACTED and paid for to play starting August 23. SE has not delivered. A class action lawsuit would compensate everyone who PAID specifically for EA (like me) at the very least. You file in federal court, get the class certified and off ya go. Chances are SE will settle out of court by offering a few free months. I'm completely serious.
Are you that ******* utterly retarded? You realize that you did not contract **** you ******* moron. Every single ************* online game has a nice, LARGE clause. Here is FFXIV's.
5. INTERRUPTION TO THE SERVICE

So, you don't have ******* grounds to sue you tool. Edited, Aug 25th 2013 1:19pm by Pawkeshup
