Some people say that the stuff happening in ARR early access is common to MMO launches. Lol, no, its not. MMO launches have bugs, but being unable to play completely - that new to me. Never seen that before, anywhere.
Seriously, how can it be any worse than that? Unless SE staff comes to your house with bats and beat you with them this is worst launch in modern MMO history. Players not being able to play at all it the ultimate failure.
And that's just the early launch. Can you imagine what will happen at the full launch tomorrow. I completely expect SE servers to explode. Never seen it this bad anywhere. I really wonder what SE uses for servers... maybe toasters?
