Did SE do **anything** during the beta periods?
I'm beginning to think they didn't start development on the "new" version of the game UNTIL the beta tests.
The combination of down time, patches, forced server closures, etc. is shaping this up to be in the Top 5 worst launches in MMO history.
Unless they do something miraculous (and soon) the critical 30-60-90 day period post release will be devastating.
